Breakthrough Prayer for Discernment: Free Someone from False Teachings

John 8:32 “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Faithful Father

My heart is heavy; some so many people need discernment when it comes to sitting under false teachers. Satan is alive and well as he is taking advantage of scripturally anemic brothers and sisters. I lift up those who find themselves trapped in the darkness of false teachings. Send your Holy Spirit through the shadows of confusion and guide them back to Your truth. I pray for clarity and discernment to pierce through the confusion they may be experiencing.

Grant them discernment, Lord, to recognize the dissonance between their current beliefs and the unwavering message of Your Word. If the deceived one has any knowledge of Your Word, I pray that wells up inside them. Convict them of the false teachings they are sitting under; give them an ill feeling as they hear the false teachings. May they see inconsistencies and question what they’ve been taught.

Philippians 1:9-10 “And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ.”


Empower them with courage, Father, to break free from the grip of deception. Give them the strength to walk away from teachings that contradict Your Word. I ask that you send an army of believers to love them to the Truth of Your Word. If the deceived has been hurt by the church, I pray that their hearts are softened to extend forgiveness to those individuals. Bless those who can offer guidance and support. Equip them with the wisdom and compassion to lead those deceived back to the path of truth.

Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

I bind all strongholds of defensiveness in the deceived; break every chain that binds them. Make them open to hearing the truth. Surround them with Your love, Lord, so they may feel Your presence even in their doubts. Remind them of Your unwavering love and acceptance.

I pray for the false teachers and communities who may have unknowingly led people astray, Lord. Grant them wisdom and a renewed commitment to Your truth. Expose and flush out all false teachers who have invaded Christian churches. For the false teachers who knowingly attack the validity of the scriptures, block all of their efforts. I bind all evil spirits behind the efforts of their teachings; make them powerless.

Finally, Father, we pray for a renewed sense of faith in those who have been misled. We need a move from you; set the captives free. May they find their way back to You, stronger and more grounded in Your Word.

In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Romans 8:38-39 “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
