Steps and prayers for spiritual house cleaning

Step 1. Get rid of the cursed items

Make sure to get rid of all items associated with the occult or which have been in the hands of an occultists. Include also items with the appearance of evil, and statues of other gods, necklaces with occult symbols, kabbalah items, such as red string or items which were given by an occultist, and books on the occult. (see Spiritual House Cleaning.). Either burn them or just get rid of them. And whatever you do, do not give them to other people. If you know people who are involved with the occult, witchcraft, even if they are family or a friend, throw away the gifts. Make sure to pray over them before you throw them out .

You are not doing this out of fear from those spirits. You are doing it in obedience to the Word of God which says we should not allow occult items in the house.

As you get rid of them pray:

“In the name of Jesus I hereby break the curse or evil power over this object by the blood of Jesus and command all evil spirits to leave it.”

Then get rid of the object. Do not take any chances. This is one of the most important parts of cleansing your house.

Step 2. Pray over yourself

Pray for yourself and close all spiritual doors to sin, and ask God’s forgiveness. Then pray for the armor of God and the Holy Spirit to fill you and guide you.


“Lord God, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I ask you to forgive me by the blood of Jesus for allowing these items in my house. Lord I also ask you to forgive me of any personal sin, known or unknown, and cleanse me by the blood of Jesus. I invite your Holy Spirit to guide me and help me live a clean life and to cleanse my house from any evil spirits. I accept that Jesus died for my sins and ask you to give me spiritual eyes to help me. I hereby put on the whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18), and ask your angels and the Holy Spirit to guide me as I cleanse my house.”

In Jesus name. Amen.  

While you pray you can also anoint yourself with oil.  

Step 3. Go through your house and cast the evils spirits out

  • Open all doors and windows of your house. This gives the evil spirits a place to go to. Make sure to open a doorway or window in each room.
  • Start at the top and work your way down. Pray over and anoint every door, closet door, window sills, corners cupboards.  These doorways can be portals for evils spirits in your house. Remember when the Israelites were in Egypt and the last plague went by, God commanded them to put the blood of the lamb on the lintels of the doorways. Pray the blood of the Lamb of God (Jesus) over your doorways. Use your authority and tell the spirits to leave.

“I command every evil spirit to leave this room and house now in the name of Jesus.  You are not allowed to stay here. I break your permission by the blood of Jesus. I renounce you and any other spirits that come with you. I hereby pray the blood of Jesus over this doorway and close every doorway to evil spirits, demons and fallen angels and they are not allowed to use this entrance. In the name of Jesus I close this doorway and evil spirits, demons and fallen angels are not allowed to use it ever again.

Step 4. Invite the Holy Spirit in the room and dedicate the space to Jesus

Go through your house and invite Jesus and the Holy Spirit into every room. This is a very important step so that the evil spirits will not return.

Jesus said:

When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Matthew 12:43-45 (KJV)

Therefore after you have cleansed your house it is important to invite the Holy Spirit in and fill your house so there wil be no space for others to try and return.

“Lord God, with my own free will, I invite the Holy Spirit into this room. I invite Jesus to dwell here and dedicate every door and window to him. This space belongs to Jesus and I pronounce the blood of Jesus over every opening and all space. Thank you Lord for dwelling with me and for your deliverance.”
