Confession of Faith and Prayer for Deliverance

Jesus Christ has crushed the devil’s head
and destroyed all his work.
He died for my sins,
descended into hell,
and has overcome hell and the devil,
and has risen from the dead for my justification.

Lord Jesus Christ,
my faithful God and Savior,
you have also redeemed me.
Because of you,
my dearest Lord Jesus Christ,
I also have the forgiveness of all my sins,
a gracious God and eternal life.
Death, devil and hell have no part with me.
I am yours, dear Lord Jesus Christ.

Do not forsake me, O Lord.
O my God, do not be far from me.
O God of my salvation,
help me against the devil and all evil.
Come to me quickly.
O Lord, you are my help and comfort forever.
