You don’t play with Satan worshippers. These people are not joking about who they serve. The results are always tragic. Jesus came that you might have abundant life. The key word there is life and not death. If you have anyone currently in your life who worships Satan, you must pray this prayer right now.
Jesus, enthroned in heaven above, I need you to rescue me. I was charmed and now I want you to be my King and Lord. Send your angels of protection over me and remove that person who is planning my harm. Jesus fill me with your Holy Ghost as I repent of sin in my life and give me a victorious destiny in Jesus name. Make me a new creature in Christ Jesus. Amen.
