10 Powerful Prayers for Freedom

Being held captive by sin and other evil influences leaves you discouraged and hopeless, but our God is bigger than any sin that tries to enter our lives and can release us from these evil influences. Here are 10 powerful prayers for freedom along with printable images to use or share.

A Prayer for Truth
Jesus, my Savior, I have been listening to too many lies for far too long. I have been tricked by the enemy. I need to be free from these lies. Jesus, I know that You are true and that the truth will set me free. Jesus, help me to rejoice in the truth. I need to believe the truth. I pray that it really would set me free. Help me with my unbelief, Jesus. You know my heart, and know that I need help believing. Thank You, Jesus, that You offer truth to Your children. Thank You for Your patience with me. In Your glorious name, I pray, Amen.


A Prayer for Freedom Against Drug Addiction
Lord of Power, I need Your strength in order to overcome the power of addiction that is keeping me captive. I feel helpless. I feel lost. Dear Lord, please come and change me. Give me the power I need to conquer drugs. I hate them so much, Lord, but almost every day I feel there is no hope to ever be free of them. My only hope is You, Lord. Please invade my life and take away the taste for more that I constantly feel. In Jesus’ most mighty and all-powerful name, I pray, Amen.


A Prayer Against Porn
Jehovah Rapha, my Healer, for far too long, I have been looking at worthless images. Every night, in my secret life, I am tempted to open my phone and watch shameful things. My phone has become my greatest enemy, Lord. Even now I can feel it itching in my pocket. Lord, please make me to desire greater things. Things that lead to life and not to death. Heal me from these temptations. Give me freedom from this horrible habit. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.


A Prayer for Freedom from Jealousy
Almighty and Everlasting God, Your word is so clear on the issue of covetousness, and yet I continually find myself wanting more and feeling jealous of those whose houses or cars are bigger or better than my own. It is such vanity, Lord. Please help me to no longer feel this way. Free me from such petty thoughts and feelings. I don’t want to be jealous, Lord. I want a humble and contrite heart. Fix my eyes on You and my mind on things that are eternal, not temporary and of this earth. I want the heavenly prize, dear God, so please help me run the race in Your image. In Jesus’ holy name, I pray, Amen.


A Prayer for Freedom from Bitterness
O God of Loving Devotion, for some reason unknown to me, I have been harboring so much bitterness in my heart, Lord. I confess this sin to You, Lord, and I ask and pray that You will take it away from me. I know I am Your child and in You, I lack nothing. Lord, remind me of my identity in You when I am tempted to bitterness. Help me to overcome by the power of Your love and grace. Set me free, Father, free from bitterness and free for grace. In Jesus’ all-powerful name, I pray, Amen.


A Prayer for Freedom from Distractions
God of Victory, I pray that You will be with me when I find my mind running this way and that. It seems that just when something big comes up, that is when I turn to my phone or to some other distraction that isn’t important at that time. Jesus, I need You to be with me and give me the power to focus. Free me from my inability to zone in on the task at hand. Clear my scattered mind. Free me from distractions. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.


A Prayer for Freedom from Anger
O God, my Strength, There are so many times throughout the day when I am battling my anger. Sometimes it is the kids, sometimes a co-worker, sometimes the driver next to me who forgets to signal. Help me, Lord. I need a spirit of grace and not to be so overcome by impatience and anger. Set me free, Lord. Give me the self-control and discipline I need to keep from bursting out. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.


A Prayer for Freedom from Financial Worry
God of All Comfort, I looked at my bank account, Lord, and it doesn’t look good. I’m not sure how I’m going to make it this month. I need Your helping hand, Lord. But I also need Your comfort. I am tired of always worrying about money. Every month I have been fine. I need to trust You, Father. You will take care of me. Help me to bask in the freedom of Your love and assurance. In Jesus’ glorious name, I pray, Amen.


A Prayer for Freedom from Sickness
Jesus, the Great Physician, I pray that You will heal my body. I pray for freedom from this sickness and the limitations it has placed on me during this season. I know that nothing is impossible for You, Lord. You are the great physician. I pray that just as You healed so many when You walked the earth, Jesus, that You would reach down, even now, and touch me with Your healing hand. In Jesus’ righteous and awesome name, I pray, Amen.


A Prayer for Freedom from My Unbelief
Compassionate and Gracious God, I have been plagued with feelings of doubt lately. At night, when I read, when I watch the news, I can feel the doubt rising inside me. Even as I feel my belief wavering and faith faltering, I pray, Lord, that You would bind my doubt and cast it into the sea. Give me the freedom of a faithful heart. A heart that longs to spend its days worshiping You and not worrying about the troubles of this world. I believe, help my unbelief. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
