Breaking Soul Ties or Cords of Bondage

The power of Jesus Christ far exceeds the power of Satan.


NOTE: Soul ties are ungodly bonds formed between the souls of people for the purpose of control, manipulation or domination. This can be from sexual sins, adultery, controlling parents, pastors, friends, or other persons. 

To be free, it is necessary to cut the cords of bondage or ties to the controlling person or group. Every individual is responsible for guarding their minds and yielding to Jesus Christ through His Word. You have the power, in Jesus' name, to break these bonds. You also may have to move away from the reach of the controller. 

(To be prayed out loud)

Dear Heavenly Father,

I come to You, in Jesus' name, and acknowledge that You gave everyone a free will. I humbly repent for allowing any control or bondage in my life, and ask to be forgiven.1 I renounce allowing myself to be controlled or manipulated in any way. I loose myself from all control, soul bonding, bondage, slavery, or any spirits that have come from the controller, any sex partner in the past or by any person specifically (name of person).

I declare that Jesus has delivered me from bondage and I am a child of Light and the Bride of Christ. I now ask You, Lord Jesus, to set me free from these soul ties, soul bonds or cords of iniquity between and any sex partner of the past, or any other person or persons, specifically (name of person). I cancel and break this bonding and cords of iniquity permanently.

I ask You, Father, to apply the Blood of Jesus2 to where these cords were connected so they can never be reconnected. It is my desire to worship You, Heavenly Father, with all my body, soul and spirit. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Footnotes by ESN:

1 God completely forgave all our sins when he died for us on Calvary. Read: The Sin Question.

2 The blood of Jesus is applied to those who have received salvation (Hebrews 10:19); those who have faith in His all sufficient atonement.
