Deliverance from Habits

Father, in the name of Jesus and according to Your Word, I believe in my heart and say with my mouth that Jesus is Lord of my life. Since all truth is in Jesus, I strip myself of my former nature [put off and discard my old, unrenewed self]. I desire to be free from the habit(s) of ___________, in the name of Jesus. Father, this/these habit(s) is/are not helpful (good for me, expedient and profitable when considered with other things). I no longer desire to be the slave of wrong habits and behaviors or be brought under their power.
Father, these self-destructive habits are symptoms of a flaw in my soul, my character, and I confess them as sin. I don’t want to habitually make the same mistakes over and over. Father, Your Word exposes the wrong thought patterns that are driving me to continue acting out in ways that are contrary to Your Word. I desire to be continually filled with and controlled by the Holy Spirit.
Thank You, Father, for translating me into the Kingdom of Your dear Son. Now I am Your garden under cultivation. In the name of Jesus, I throw all spoiled virtue and cancerous evil in the garbage. In simple humility, I purpose to let You, my gardener, landscape me with the Word, making a salvation-garden of my life.
I arm myself with the full armor of God, that armor of a heavily armed soldier which God has supplied for me—the helmet of salvation, loins girded with truth, feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. With God’s armor on, I am able to stand up against all the strategies and deceits and fiery darts of Satan, in the name of Jesus.
Clothed in Your armor, I discipline my body and subdue it. With every temptation, I choose the way of escape that You provide. Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.
Thank You, Lord. I praise You that I am growing spiritually, and Your engrafted Word is saving my soul. I strip away the old nature with its habits, and I put on the new man created in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah! Amen.
