Prayers Against Witchcraft in the Nation
Priscilla Van Sutphin
Understand that many of these prayers are identificational so that we are interceding for the lost and those unlearned, so that God will bring awakening. Don’t get defensive about how you aren’t that, because they are meant to remove the sin off the land, not just you.
Deut 18:9-14 NKJV
9 “When you come into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations. 10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you. 13 You shall be blameless before the Lord your God. 14 For these nations which you will dispossess listened to soothsayers and diviners; but as for you, the Lord your God has not appointed such for you.
The Humiliation of Babylon
IS 47 NKJV “Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; Sit on the ground without a throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans! For you shall no more be called tender and delicate. 2 Take the millstones and grind meal. Remove your veil, Take off the skirt, Uncover the thigh, 3 Your nakedness shall be uncovered, Yes, your shame will be seen; I will take vengeance, And I will not arbitrate with a man.”
4 As for our Redeemer, the Lord of hosts is His name, The Holy One of Israel. 5 “Sit in silence, and go into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans; For you shall no longer be called the Lady of Kingdoms. 6 I was angry with My people; I have profaned My inheritance, And given them into your hand. You showed them no mercy; On the elderly you laid your yoke very heavily. 7 And you said, ‘I shall be a lady forever,’ So that you did not take these things to heart, Nor remember the latter end of them. 8 “Therefore hear this now, you who are given to pleasures, Who dwell securely, Who say in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one else besides me; I shall not sit as a widow, Nor shall I know the loss of children’;
9 But these two things shall come to you in a moment, in one day: The loss of children, and widowhood. They shall come upon you in their fullness because of the multitude of your sorceries, For the great abundance of your enchantments. 10 “For you have trusted in your wickedness; You have said, ‘No one sees me’; Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; And you have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one else besides me.’ 11 Therefore evil shall come upon you; You shall not know from where it arises. And trouble shall fall upon you; You will not be able to put it off. And desolation shall come upon you suddenly, Which you shall not know.
12 “Stand now with your enchantments And the multitude of your sorceries, In which you have labored from your youth — Perhaps you will be able to profit, Perhaps you will prevail. 13 You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels; Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, And the monthly prognosticators Stand up and save you from what shall come upon you. 14 Behold, they shall be as stubble, The fire shall burn them; They shall not deliver themselves From the power of the flame; It shall not be a coal to be warmed by, Nor a fire to sit before! 15 Thus shall they be to you with whom you have labored, Your merchants from your youth; They shall wander each one to his quarter. No one shall save you.
“ Nothing brings a surer or a sorer ruin upon any people than cruelty, especially to God's Israel.”

Isa 1:2-6 NKJV
The Wickedness of Judah
2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth! For the Lord has spoken:
"I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against Me; 3 The ox knows its owner And the donkey its master's crib; But Israel does not know, My people do not consider."
4 Alas, sinful nation, A people laden with iniquity, A brood of evildoers, Children who are corrupters! They have forsaken the Lord, They have provoked to anger the Holy One of Israel, They have turned away backward. 5 Why should you be stricken again? You will revolt more and more. The whole head is sick, And the whole heart faints. 6 From the sole of the foot even to the head, There is no soundness in it, But wounds and bruises and putrefying sores; They have not been closed or bound up, or soothed with ointment. 7 Your country is desolate, Your cities are burned with fire; Strangers devour your land in your presence; And it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
Father, lift up Your standard in this nation against the spirit of witchcraft ! Reveal that You alone are God, and there is no other. Forgive the mockery and grandiosity with which witches and warlocks have proclaimed their lies here in the United States Lord. Forgive those in the movie industry who have succumbed to the lies, forgive our nation, and release wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You Father. Pour out Your Spirit upon the earth, let the earth cough up salvation Lord ! Bring down the strongholds of witchcraft over the nation that awakening may take place and many be brought into the kingdom for such a day as this.
We speak LIFE, RESURRECTION LIFE to this nation which is in rebellion to You. Do not allow destruction to rule and reign. Do not turn Your turtledoves over to the wild beasts of the earth, Oh Lord. Bring down the principalities and powers of freemasonry and witchcraft Oh Lord. Fight for us Lord! Increase Your angelic hosts over this nation and bring down every fortress of the enemy. Cause confusion to the camp of the enemy in Jesus name ! Reveal Jesus, and release those in darkness, that they would repent and be delivered from the snares of death.
Forgive us as parents for allowing our children avenues to evil through movies, TV, books, comics, toys, etc. Forgive us as parents for not protecting them from evil Lord. Forgive us for not educating them in the things of the Lord that are important to their survival and growth in You.
Restore prayer and holiness Oh Lord in our sanctuaries and forgive us for our own witchcraft in rebelling against You; For going our own ways and neglecting our time with You. Forgive us for compromises in the church which we have not confronted. Forgive us our idolatries Oh Lord to drugs, alcohol, entertainment, perversion and all forms of sexual sins. Forgive our greed, in the church and without Lord. Forgive us for getting too comfortable, that we don’t reach out to the lost. Forgive us for holding on to things as though they could provide the happiness only You can give us. Lord, hear our prayers and cries for justice. There is no justice in the land, when a nation turns from God, You’ve said, and we desperately need YOU Lord to RESTORE Justice in this nation.
Father forgive this nation for allowing secret societies to flourish. We repent of freemasonry, rosacrucianism, wicca, witchcraft, druidism and all the IDOLATRY - all the worship to SATAN involved in them. We ask YOU to destroy the strongholds of FREEMASONRY in the CHURCH and in the nation. Forgive those churches involved for allowing syncretism in their members, and opening a doorway to Satan in the church. Father BRING DOWN THE IDOLS ALIGNED WITH FREEMASONRY in AMERICA in the name and blood of JESUS. CAUSE the priests to weep again between the porch and the altar for all the idolatry of this nation, and all that has been allowed in the church. Forgive us for the GREED, and idolatry to MAMMON FATHER. In Jesus' name !
Father we need YOU. We are desperate for the Bridegroom to enter His church and restore His order ! Restore the mighty fear of the Lord in Your house Lord! Rend the heavens and come down Lord ! Without Your Spirit we can do nothing ! Have mercy on us Oh Lord Forgive our prideful and murderous attitudes, our hatred of each other, our jealousies and sibling rivalry, our insecurities. Forgive our doubts and unbelief, the skepticism in our hearts the vies against You. Against YOU alone we have sinned oh Lord ! Help us Lord for we are desperate for You. Come and empower Your church more Lord. Come down and visit us, pour out Your Most Holy Spirit that we would be made ONE as You are ONE Father. Release the five fold ministry LOOSE YOUR PROPHETS AND APOSTLES TO ESTABLISH THE FIRM FOUNDATIONS THAT WILL RESTORE HOLINESS IN OUR LANDS LOOSE YOUR KINGDOM LORD ! Let Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven in Jesus name!!!!!
We need the power of Your Spirit of intercession, that we might war in the spirit. Release the Spirit of MIGHT, for we need the release of warfare worship in Your church, that the spirit of jezebel would be destroyed in Your church. And we need prophets empowered to confront the Hannaniahs like Jeremiah did, and Draw us close to Your heart where nothing can touch us Father ! Release the Spirit of worship, for apart from You, how can we worship??? Surely the Lord's hand is not too short to save ! You promised to throw that woman jezebel on a sickbed that she might repent Father loose Your judgments in the earth, that the earth might know that there is but One God in heaven, and One to be exalted over all the earth !
Jesus is LORD of Lords and KING of Kings He alone holds the keys to death and hell. Father loose any prophets, apostles, teachers, pastors and evangelists from the grip of the jezebel spirit and any oppression in their lives. Release the Spirit of Revelation. Pour out Your love that leads to repentance and open the eyes of the blind, that all who are moving in that spirit would have the opportunity to repent before You come to judge Your church !
Father, our youth have been drawn into sorcery; drugs sometimes by their own parents, and many by people bent on idolatry to money. DRAW them to You Father. Your word says that no man comes to the Father lest You draw him . Draw our youth and young adults to Your heart Father. Restore families that have been broken. Forgive our hardheartedness and the blasphemy with which many of the youth speak of You. Forgive us for not raising our children up in the praise and admonition of the Lord. Forgive us for not treasuring our children and protecting them from all that is evil. Restore our children Lord! Break the power of deception off the youth and establish Your TRUTH in their hearts; loose the Spirit for conviction upon them and lead them in paths of righteousness for Your name's sake! Give the Spirit of revelation to the innocent children and restore innocence to those whose parents, in lack of knowledge have allowed in the enemy through TV, movies, toys, etc. Loose angels to reveal Jesus to the children and let them see the angels that watch over them; transform them by Your love poured out by Your Holy Spirit.
Father, I pray that You would restore all that the enemy has stolen in our land. Humanistic practices are common in our nation, in our schools, and even in the church. What is right and wrong is not taught. Many mix witchcraft practices and belief in Christianity without realizing they are doing evil, and then there are those who do know, but prefer to have their own way.
We have provoked You to much anger in this nation justifying our witchcraft, our control, our drugs, and alcohol, and perversions. Father we ask You to lift the curse off our nation for these practices. We know how You abhor violence and evil. Father forgive our nation and heal our land. Pour out Your Spirit and restore righteousness in our hearts. Release wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You to all who will come release it in the camps of the enemy, like in Gideon's time. Raise up Your standard against rebellion and witchcraft; destroy the strongholds of murder and suicide that have increased due to our rebellion oh Lord! Forgive the highest form of witchcraft that is practiced here through abortion Lord; the disdain of human life and Your creation ! WE speak LIFE to all encompassed by death.
Father we know that in every level of masonry there are death curses, so we ask YOU to DESTROY the DEATH curses over our nation and over individuals, and their families who have practiced this abomination.
Forgive our former presidents and first ladies for consulting mediums, astrologists and witchcraft. Forgive our nation as a whole for looking to things other than to YOU oh Lord! Forgive our greed and self-will. Release a sovereign move of Your Spirit oh Lord, bring revival and tear down the high places and altars to satan and baal in our land. Bring Your strong conviction to the hearts of those in Your church who have compromised the Word, and to those who are unsaved in the world. Pour down Your glory so that Your church would be sanctified as the Temple was by Your glory. Create a holy and pure bride for Your Son oh Lord ! Wash away the stain of sin in the camp that we might fulfill our call to the nations.
Ex 22:18-20 KJV Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death. He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the LORD only, he shall be utterly destroyed.
Father, we ask You to invade the dark places in our country Father; to destroy the perversion, idolatry and witchcraft. REVEAL Your Son , that darkness and death could be removed from our land. Forgive our complacency and apathy that have kept us from praying and worshipping as we ought to Lord ! Father would You now remove the spirit of slumber off of our nation, that the people will awaken to the truth ? Remove all spiritual blindness and deafness, that they will be able to RECEIVE the Truth of the gospel.
Father, You are truly shaking all that can be shaken; help Your people to awaken to the signs of the times and to be steadfast in prayer , without Your Spirit we cannot do it Lord. You are our Resource for everything we need. REVIVE us ! Resuscitate US OH LORD ! Convict us of our own idolatries Lord, and destroy the idols in our hearts. Help us to be generous and giving instead of fearful and hording. Separate and protect us from the wicked in heart, Lord. Keep us in the palm of Your mighty hand. Break every deception over our minds that our minds would be steadfast towards You. Destroy the works of the antichrist in our land that are waging war against Your people
Ps 90:13-17 NKJV
3 Return, O Lord! How long? And have compassion on Your servants.
14 Oh, satisfy us early with Your mercy, That we may rejoice and be glad all our days! 15 Make us glad according to the days in which You have afflicted us, The years in which we have seen evil. 16 Let Your work appear to Your servants, And Your glory to their children. 17 And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands.
Num 23:24 NKJV Look, a people rises like a lioness, and lifts itself up like a lion; It shall not lie down until it devours the prey, and drinks the blood of the slain."
Father, Pour out Your Spirit of MIGHT! Roar out of Zion! Speak through Your warriors, empower us in intercession. Give us authority of the King to war against all that is unholy and interfering in the lives of your children, our families, our cities, our states, our nation, to provoke healing and deliverance. Break the power of pride over us in Your church that we would all submit to the healing and deliverance processes You want for us and be able to war effectively Abba against all the power of the enemy !
Father, sometimes our hearts are not right in the sight of You, or we would be walking in power. Sometimes we want the power, but do not want to pay the cost. We hesitate to do all we can to get in Your presence, and to humble ourselves so that we might be healed We look to the gifts but not to the giver, or we look to have our problems solved, but do not appreciate You and all You have done for us. Give us thankful hearts Lord. Forgive us for any pride, or manipulations, or control, that we would be invulnerable to the witchcraft around us. Fill us with Your grace to be and do all YOU want us to be and do. Cleanse our hearts and bring forth good fruit in us. Help us to stay in humility, not depending on ourselves, but casting all our cares upon you.
ather, help me to die daily, to take up my cross daily and to not forget that YOU are the Source of my strength to do anything. You are my Adonai, my Lord and Master. Help me to depend on You for all that I need and to not go off in self-sufficient pride to do whatever I want to do, but to obey You and what You want for me to do each day.
Father, forgive our nation for our harlotries. Forgive the usury we have taken into the world and cheated laborers with, so we could wear expensive brand name shoes and clothes. Forgive the disdain we have had for others of different color and ethnicity. Forgive our pride and arrogance in thinking we are better than anyone else. Forgive our nation for bowing to mammon in stead of to YOU Father ! We have taught our children that things matter more than people, that one can get away with anything as long as you have money and that success depends on how much money and things we have, instead of how well we obey YOUR commands Lord! Forgive us Lord, and in Your judgment, remember MERCY to those who are Yours. In Jesus' name!
Father, we ask Your forgiveness for the witchcraft in our hearts, for You have said that rebellion is as witchcraft. Father, we all have struggled with control, and the fear and pride behind it and we want to be free of it Lord, that we might set others free as You did. You said, " Perfect Love casts down all fear." So pour out Your perfect love that would uproot the fear in our hearts Lord, that we would turn only to you. Father, send Your Son into the covens across this nation to reveal His love for them, that they might turn from darkness to Your everlasting light and serve You with all their hearts. We ask this year, that you would disrupt occult rituals, and meetings, and sacrifices of children, women and men. Rescue the innocent from the hands of the enemy. Break the power of divination and sorcery off our nation Father. Destroy all the rationalization in the hearts of people who cling to worthless idols and self-destruction. Show Yourself to those who sit in darkness and remove all the blindness, deafness and delusion. In Jesus' name !
Dan 4:2-3 NKJV
I thought it good to declare the signs and wonders that the Most High God has worked for me. How great are His signs, and how mighty His wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and His dominion is from generation to generation. And he works signs and wonders in heaven and on earth, Who has delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.
Father, deliver us from the lions in our lives ; deliver us from all evil and put in us a heart of rejoicing and praise. Direct our hearts into the love of God and the forgiveness of Christ.
Father, we have not completely died to ourselves like those early Christians. We still cling to our houses and things of this world more than we cling to YOU. I pray You will fill the church with Your glory, that they might realize what is truly important, and that the idols in Your house would be destroyed. Destroy the idols in our own hearts Lord. Help us to be brave, and to be willing to give up everything for the sake of Your kingdom, like the apostles and early Christians were. Help us to hear, what You want for us to do, and give us the grace to do it, in Jesus' name ! Give us a heart of generosity like You have Lord toward those who have less. Forgive our judgments of those who are weaker and give us a heart like Yours, that we can forgive from our heart all who have offended us.
Acts 5:12-15 NKJV
And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon's Porch. Yet none of the rest dared join them, but the people esteemed them highly. And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women, so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them.
Father, we want to walk in the same glory that the early apostles had. We do not want to be left out. We want to be givers of Your glory, not to get the glory only for ourselves, or to steal it away from YOU. Forgive us for the times we have walked in selfish ambition out of our insecurities Father. Help us to know deeply the love that You have for us, that we would not succomb to those same temptations again. We want to give YOU all the glory for You alone are deserving of all glory, honor and power.
2 Cor 12:12-13 NKJV
Truly the signs of an apostle were accomplished among you with all perseverance, in signs and wonders and mighty deeds.
Father, we will never walk in the signs and wonders of an apostle without Your compassion. Help us to see others the way YOU see them and to not base our choices for who we touch or pray for based on their looks and talents. Help us to love the unloveable and to see others ONLY the way YOU see them. Grant us Your compassion and mercy. Help us to not walk in our own flesh, or we will fall short every time.
Father, we thank You for our salvation. We thank You for Jesus and His death on the cross, that annihilated death for us; that took away our sins and that we are written in the Lamb's book of Life. We thank You for what You endured in seeing Your Son treated so heartlessly by sinners. And we ask for YOU to release a great revelation among the young adults, youth and children of this nation, of the cross and Jesus. RELEASE them Lord from the pangs of death that surround them. RELEASE to them the riches of heaven. Forgive our nation for taking prayer out of the schools and allowing witchcraft in the schools. Pour out Your glory on every high school campus, every grade school campus and every college and university, that none would perish Father ! RELEASE YOUR KINGDOM HERE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN ! Let the earth open, and salvation spring forth !
Father, forgive us for our selfishness in not wanting to go to the neighborhoods and to the nations, where people are for a prey and no one delivers like it says in Isaiah. Give us the courage to leave when You say to go ! Do not let us be like Thomas who refused his lot and ended up going as a slave to India. Help us to willingly GO when You have said GO ! Help us to give up our comforts and apathy and complacency in the church and give all of our heart to YOU ! Raise this generation of young adults up to have a passion for souls and for JESUS ! Father, release the finances for those who do want to go ! RELEASE also the anointing that breaks the yoke for those who want to go. PUSH BACK those forces of evil that want to rob the church of it's ability to go. Destroy the works of the antichrist in our own hearts and in the world, In Jesus' name ! AMEN !
Father, rise up for YOU are a mighty man of war, and cause confusion in the camp of the enemy, just like in Gideon's time, that our soldiers would not even have to fight. Rescue the innocent out of the hands of the enemy. Bring wondrous deliverance for those in prison houses who have given their lives for YOU. And bring salvation to the Muslim, Hindu and Buddhists in our land! Let the God of glory arise and scatter Your enemies ! RESTORE all things Father. Grant to Your servants great boldness, RELEASE THE SPIRIT OF MIGHT, in proclaiming the gospel to those who are lost ! Jesus said, "If I be lifted up, I will draw all men to Myself "so in all areas of the earth, let us lift up JESUS, that all men, women, children of the world would have the opportunity to know Him. Bring down the idolatry in the North America and the Latin nations Lord ! LIFT UP THE KING OF GLORY. Open the gates of men's heart that the King of Glory might come in ! Bring salvation to the earth in all that You do.
Father, give us the Spirit of the fear of the Lord in our churches, in our homes, and in our own lives Let the fear of the Lord fall on our congregations, on our families, on us! Remove also all the fear in our hearts. Father we need the proper perspective of WHO YOU are ! Erase all complacency in our hearts, that we might fear You and obey You in a godly way ! Father impart to us the Spirit of Might that we might war according to Your Spirit and take our place on the wall. Pour out on us Your Spirit of intercession and discernment, and keep us in a place of humility that our prayers would be heard. Destroy all that is Babylon within us that we might walk in Your holiness, and Your power. Raise up a standard in us against the enemy of our souls. Release revelation Abba that we would have the right word in season for the witches , warlocks, and others who are lost on the streets, or in the workplace, and marketplace where we go, that they would know that YOU know them.
Zeph 3:11-20 NKJV
In that day you shall not be shamed for any of your deeds In which you transgress against Me; For then I will take away from your midst Those who rejoice in your pride, and you shall no longer be haughty In My holy mountain. I will leave in your midst A meek and humble people, and they shall trust in the name of the LORD. The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness And speak no lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth; for they shall feed their flocks and lie down, and no one shall make them afraid." Sing, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O Israel! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! The LORD has taken away your judgments, He has cast out your enemy. The King of Israel, the LORD, is in your midst; You shall see disaster no more. In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem: "Do not fear; Zion, let not your hands be weak. The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."
"I will gather those who sorrow over the appointed assembly, Who are among you, To whom its reproach is a burden. Behold, at that time I will deal with all who afflict you; I will save the lame, and gather those who were driven out; I will appoint them for praise and fame In every land where they were put to shame.
Hag 2:6-9 NKJV
"For thus says the LORD of hosts: "Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,' says the LORD of hosts. 'The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,' says the LORD of hosts. The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,' says the LORD of hosts. 'And in this place I will give peace,' says the LORD of host
