Like all forms of witchcraft, pharmakeia is already part of our everyday lives. Over the generations, we have been trained to see it as the ultimate source of our hope and healing. Billions of dollars, talent and resources have been poured into making it more and more advanced. As believers, we need to remember that God is the only One who can bring perfect healing. Here is a prayer to repent of submitting to pharmakeia and re-dedicating our bodies back to God as living sacrifices, which is our spiritual worship.
Exodus 15:26 ESV saying, “If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, your healer.”
Romans 12:1-2 ESV I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Definition of pharamakeia: the use of medicine, drugs or spells, please refer to the Bible concordance here. It is the original Greek word found in Galatians 5:20, Revelation 9:21, and Revelation 18:23, which has been simplified in its translation into English as sorcery. For an insight into the origins of pharamkeia, please refer to the article called Egyptian Medicine from the World History Encyclopedia.
Galatians 5:19-24 ESV Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery [pharmakeia], enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

Note: It is also advisable to consider baptism as part of this prayer. Please also see Preparing our hearts for baptism.
Acts 22:16 ESV And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name.’
“Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for choosing to dwell in me as Your temple.
Ephesians 2:18-22 ESV … you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ESV Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
I confess I have counted the works and words of human beings, as superior to Your works and Words. I have relied on the wisdom of mankind rather than turn to You and Your commandments.
Romans 11:33.36 ESV Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
Please forgive me for conforming to the practices of pharmakeia, for giving power over my body to people, for allowing them to practice phamakeia on me and injecting me with various potentially toxic chemicals, and for consuming medical substances that may be poisonous to my body.
1 Corinthians 3:17 ESV If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.
I also repent of allowing the powers of this world to infiltrate my DNA and tamper with it and Your mark that is in it. My DNA is the genetic code of life that You have specifically woven together for my life.
Psalm 139:13-16 ESV For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
You are the Author of my life. Lord, I confess I have sinned against You, out of fear of people and a desire for the comforts and conveniences of this world. I confess I have feared rejection, lack, suffering, and persecution over and above honouring this temple of the Holy Spirit. How I must have grieved You! Please help me to fix my thoughts on the things above and not the things on this earth, so that I’m not easily overcome by the antichrist teachings of this world
Acts 3:14-15 ESV But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.
1 John 2:15-18 ESV Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour.
Matthew 5:11-12 ESV “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Colossians 3:1-4 ESV If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Thank you that You are a compassionate Father who knows my anxieties, desires, needs, and all my shortcomings. Thank you for Your mercy and grace when I repent before You with my whole heart.
Psalm 103:13-14 ESV As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
Psalm 24:3-5 ESV Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully. He will receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
Holy Spirit, I humbly ask for You to convict my heart once again of what is righteous in Your eyes and I repent of any time I have hardened my heart against You and Your Word in favour of the things of this world. Forgive me if I have quenched the Holy Spirit and defiled Your temple!
John 16:7-8 NIV But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment:
1 Thessalonians 5:19 ESV Do not quench the Spirit.
Much of the modern healthcare and phamaceutical practices and systems are rooted the the idolatry and sorcery of Egypt. (Please also refer to What was ancient Egyptian medicine like? in Medical News Today.)
Jeremiah 46:11 ESV Go up to Gilead, and take balm, O virgin daughter of Egypt! In vain you have used many medicines; there is no healing for you.
Many products today use fetal cells from aborted babies from decades ago to mass produce vaccines. They are even used to test and develop cosmetics, food flavouring and common medicines. Traces of the aborted babies’ DNA could still remain in my body. (Please see Fact check: While vaccines contain human DNA, there is no link to cancer, autism and Fetal Cells in the Cosmetics, Food, and Medical Industries.)
Numbers 19:13 ESV Whoever touches a dead person, the body of anyone who has died, and does not cleanse himself, defiles the tabernacle of the LORD, and that person shall be cut off from Israel; because the water for impurity was not thrown on him, he shall be unclean. His uncleanness is still on him.
Father in heaven, You are holy. Forgive me for defiling the temple of the Holy Spirit and not being set apart for You!
Acts 17:30-31 ESV The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.”
Today, I repent of participating in phamakeia and the following beliefs and practices.
All chemical-laden drugs and intoxications: antibiotics, anti-depressants, aromatherapy, botox, general anaesthetic, sedatives, illicit drugs (please list as applicable to you) etc.
1 Peter 1:13-15 ESV Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
All invasive procedures: abortions, fertility treatments, birth control, invasive gynaecological procedures, accepting blood donations or transfusions, chemotherapy, radiation therapy,, etc. (Please list as is applicable to you.)
Please also see A prayer to repent of abortion
All fetal cell related treatments and products: cosmetics, food flavouring and common medicines such as (please list as applicable to you). Note: For lists of companies and products, please see List of companies using fetal cells from aborted babies to flavour products, and The Use of Fetal Cell Lines in Common Medications.
All vaccinations: measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox, hepatitis A & B, influenza, covid-19, tetanus, yellow fever, typhoid, dengue, malaria, etc. (Please list as is applicable to you.)
All new age practices: new age healing techniques, meditation, chanting, acupuncture, cupping, taichi, yoga, blood letting, tapping, hypnotism, etc. (Please list as is applicable to you.)
Where I have encouraged or led others or my children to take part in phamakeia, please forgive me.
Lord, in Your Word, You have provided wisdom and counsel on how to receive healing for this body, I confess I have relied on my own human understanding or been ignorant of Your commandments.
Today, I repent of
- Dishonouring the communion | Taking communion without discerning if I have unconfessed sins that I have yet to bring before You, Lord, in repentance – this may be one reason why I have become weak and sickly | 1 Corinthians 11:27-30 ESV Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty concerning the body and blood of the Lord. Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. That is why many of you are weak and ill, and some have died. Please see Remember our deliverance at Communion
- Dishonouring the Sabbath | Not honouring the Sabbath and keeping it holy. You rested after six days of work and You also desire that I also rest while You dwell in me – I have dishonoured Your presence in my body. | Exodus 35:2 ESV Six days work shall be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on it shall be put to death.
- Dishonouring my parents | Thinking evil thoughts of my parents and wishing them ill, thereby leading to a shortened life | Exodus 20:12 ESV “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.
- Not trusting and revering God | Trusting in my ways and understanding, rather than the You, Lord | Proverb 3:5-8 ESV Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.
- Abstinence | Abstaining from certain foods out of superstition, outward religiosity, or out of vanity, when You have blessed all foods You created to be received with thanksgiving | 1 Timothy 4:1-3 ESV Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
- Not confessing my sins before others for healing | Neglecting to confess my sins before God-fearing brothers- or sisters-in-Christ and and asking them to pray for me, so that I may receive Your healing | James 5:14-16 ESV Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working
- Not trusting the Lord with my anxieties | Holding in anxieties and stress inside my body without confessing them to You, Lord | 1 Peter 5:6-8 ESV Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Please also see Confess the emotions that make us sick.
Proverb 17:22 ESV A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
As I get baptised today, I ask that You please wash this body of sin and resurrect it back out of the water into the state that You had designed this body to be. Please cleanse me from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.
Acts 22:16 ESV And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name.’
2 Corinthians 7:1 ESV Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.
Today, I humbly ask for Your healing for
- All damaged DNA and cells

- All allergies
- All organ damage
- All body pains
- All other afflictions
Psalm 41:1-3 ESV Blessed is the one who considers the poor! In the day of trouble the Lord delivers him; the Lord protects him and keeps him alive; he is called blessed in the land; you do not give him up to the will of his enemies. The Lord sustains him on his sickbed; in his illness you restore him to full health.
Psalm 34:17-20 ESV When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.
I humbly also ask for the removal of:
- All foreign DNA
- All poisons
- All foreign particles
- All effects of pharmakeia
Please restore my immune system, energy, and health to fullness in Christ and replace my fears with Your love, joy, and hope, Lord!
Colossians 2:6-10 ESV Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.
I acknowledge that people have spoken words of death and sickness over me, and that I have put my faith in their words, instead of the Lord. Words can affect the chemical responses in my brain and therefore, my body functions as well. This brings death and curses. I may even have cursed myself by saying, (please list as is applicable to you. eg. “I will never get well”, “my family all have this condition and so will I”, “everyone gets sick and dies,”) Please forgive me!
Proverbs 18:21 ESV Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.
Deuteronomy 30:19-20 ESV I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days …
Today, I speak the Lord’s truth (adapted from Jeremiah 17:7-8,14-17) over myself, “Blessed is anyone who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. I want to be like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit. Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise. Behold, they say to me, “Where is the word of the Lord? Let it come!” I have not run away from being your servant, nor have I desired the day of sickness. You know what came out of my lips; it was before Your face. Be not a terror to me; You are my refuge in the day of disaster.”
I repent of putting more faith in (please name any organisation, medical personnel, fortune teller, family, or friend) than in You.
Jeremiah 17:5-6 ESV Thus says the Lord: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord. He is like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see any good come. He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land.
In Jesus’ name, I renounce and cancel out what they have said about my body, health, and future, such as, (please list.) I repent of giving authority over my body, the temple of the Holy Spirit, to the institutions of this world, merchants of pharmakeia, fetal cell line suppliers, and followers of Baal and the name of Baal.
Revelation 18:15,23 ESV The merchants of these wares, who gained wealth from her … for your merchants were the great ones of the earth, and all nations were deceived by your sorcery [pharmakeia].
1 Kings 18:21 ESV And Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.” And the people did not answer him a word.
I repent of giving in to fear, especially the fear of death. Jesus came to deliver me from the fear of death. I shall not return to its enslavement.
2 Timothy 1:7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
Hebrews 2:14-15 ESV Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.
Today I forgive and cut spiritual ties with (parents / caretakers / teachers / bible teachers / doctors / nurses / research and laboratory personnel / authorities — please list all that are relevant to you etc.) who may also have been deceived into taking part in and promoting pharmakeia. I also cut spiritual ties with the parents of the aborted fetuses and their iniquity.
As I re-submit my body, mind, and soul back to God, I commit to resisting all temptations from Satan to return to pharmakeia. I do not wish to take the Lord’s name in vain again. I commit to taking good care of this body You have given me, by eating clean nutritious food and drinking clean water, having around eight hours of sleep, getting enough exercise and fresh air, and having a firm faith that trusts You.
James 4:7-10 ESV Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.
In Jesus’ name, I command the spirits of pharmakeia, fear, witchcraft, manipulation, death, murder, abortion, lust for power, and the mind blinding spirit (please list any other relevant to you) to leave me. I command these spirits to submit to Jesus, never to return to me.
Father in heaven, please fill me with the wisdom, strength, and fear of the Lord that I need in these Last Days so that I may not sin against You again.
In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen!”
