Heavenly Father, we take up the power of the Ascended Lord Jesus, and as co-rulers with Him, we assert our authority over the powers of the air. We thank You that demonic forces must recognize and obey you as Creator. We command you, evil forces, to release your hold over our friend, [name of friend]. God is his/her defender, so you have no power or authority to harass him/her with illness any longer. In union with Jesus, we exercise our authority and command you to give way. Leave our loved one and never return. Amen.
