Prayer to release the descendant of Maori Occulture

Deliverance steps to FREEDOM and to a victorious Christian life!

NB Please realize that this is not a renunciation of everything Maori, far from it. But it is a renunciation of those things that have slipped into the culture which are unacceptable to the Lord.

The following steps will bring you to freedom from demonic bondage and will lead to wholeness before God. This is a ministry of wholeness…Be ye Holy… wholly Holy!

As the Apostle Paul said in 1Thessalonians 5.23…”I pray God that your whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord.
Were any of your ancestors involved in; Cannibalism (Jeremiah 19:9) ?
Drinking of blood – forbidden in Leviticus 17:11 & Deuteronomy 12:16 & 23 ?
Burning children ?
Sins of ignorance (Leviticus 5:17) ?
War – see the causes of war – James 4:1-4 ?
Bestiality and confusion ( Leviticus 18:23) ?

Note: Stay open to the need for further specific prayer as God directs you. Remember that God loves you for responding to the call of His beloved Son Jesus.

The principles upon which the above prayers are based are as follows
Identify your sin & the sin of your ancestors by finding out what Gods Word says… “For by the law is the knowledge of sins” (Psalm 32:5) List your sins, asking God to help you to see them & identify them,
Repent! i.e. decide to stop doing the sin. Confess & renounce each o” your sins Say “Sorry” to God Plead �Guilty” without making excuses Ask for the cleansing of Jesus� blood “The blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7)
Confess your ancestor’s sins
Renounce the devil & the specific unclean spirits… by name if possible! eg spirit of fear, loosen yourself from their hold.
Resist the devil in the confessed area of your life…and he shall flee from You
Remember to also cast out any associated spirits (Satan�s legal right to hold you in bondage has been broken if you have repented from the sin which allowed demons to enter.) Call upon the name of the Lord Jesus for deliverance
Surrender these areas to the Holy Spirit Ask for the Holy Spirit to fill the vacated areas


Read God�s word daily and worship your deliverer… JESUS CHRIST Ask Jesus to grow the fruit of His Holy Spirit in you…LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONGSUFFERING, GENTLENESS, GOODNESS, FAITH, MEEKNESS, TEMPERANCE, (SELF-CONTROL) (Galatians 5:22)

Be ye Holy as He is Holy! Stand upon your deliverance by faith.
Use the above information to set others free! Matthew 10:8 �Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Relevant Scriptures

Note A. DEUT. 18:10 “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.

Note B. EXO 20:4 “You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,
6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

Note C. PSA 115:3 But our God is in heaven; He does whatever He pleases.
4 Their idols are silver and gold, The work of men’s hands.
5 They have mouths, but they do not speak; Eyes they have, but they do not see;
6 They have ears, but they do not hear; Noses they have, but they do not smell;
7 They have hands, but they do not handle; Feet they have, but they do not walk; Nor do they mutter through their throat.
8 Those who make them are like them; So is everyone who trusts in them.

Note D ROMANS 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,
21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,
23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man – and birds and four-footed beasts and creeping things.
1:24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;
29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,
30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;
32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

Note E. LEV 19:28 ‘You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the LORD.
& LEV 21:5 ‘They shall not make any bald place on their heads, nor shall they shave the edges of their beards nor make any cuttings in their flesh.
