III. Toxic Emotions: Bitterness - Session 14 - Part C-1b
The Bitterness Affidavit – Session 14 – Part C-1b
Make the list (using “The Bitterness Affidavit”) of all the bitterness you have against others. We need to confess and repent before Almighty God for holding onto this bitterness and believing it, instead of believing Him. The stronghold that bitterness has held in your life will be destroyed, and Satan’s power over you will be legally cancelled. Be thorough, and pray through each bitterness individually (using “Prayer of Release”). Do not give the devil any "legal" access to you. The “Prayer of Release” is an example of a prayer you can use to deal with bitterness, and eliminate it from your life. Remember, bitterness gains entrance to us from unforgiveness – think about each person who have ever hurt you and write out their name and what their offenses were (use extra sheet if needed) – pray the “Prayer of Release” for each item on this list – this goes along with forgiveness.

Prayer of Release from Bitterness - Session 14 - Part C-1c
In the name of Jesus, I purpose and choose to forgive (the person) from my heart for (what they did). In the name of The Lord Jesus, I cancel all their debts and obligations to me.
Dear Lord, I ask You to forgive me for my bitterness towards (the person) in this situation.
In the name of Jesus, and by the power of His blood, I cancel Satan's authority over me in this memory because I have forgiven.
In the name of Jesus, I command that all the tormentors that have been assigned to me because of my unforgiveness leave me, now.
Holy Spirit, I invite you into my heart, and to heal me of this pain. Please speak your words of truth to me about this situation.
Listen for the Holy Spirit to speak and write down what He says so you can rebuke the spirit of bitterness, when it tries to return! It does not matter how many times you have to pray but don’t allow bitterness to return!
