“Can I Break Negative Soul Ties with Past Relationships?”
A. “The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the
body. By His power God raised the Lord from the dead, and He will raise us also. Do
you not know that your bodies are members of Christ Himself? Shall I then take the
members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! Do you not know that he
who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two
will become one flesh.” But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with Him in
spirit.” 1 Corinthians 6: 13-17

relationships and marriage:
a. Blame and guilt.

c. Rejection of one another.
d. Lack of sympathy.

1. What is God’s plan for establishing positive soul ties?
“Haven’t you read, He replied, `that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female’,
and said, `For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and
the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has
joined together let not man separate.’” Matthew 19: 4-6

3. Sample prayers to consider using in breaking soul ties
“Lord, I acknowledge and renounce my sinful involvement in
(specific moral failure),
and ask You to break that stronghold in my life.
Jesus, I come to You
asking that You separate my mind, body, soul, spirit and all my emotions from any
negative soul ties with (name). If there are any lies I believe, any influences I feel,
any words said to me, any threats made, or any images I think about, would You
show me and break the negative connections between me and (name). Amen.”
“Jesus, if anything was robbed from me or taken away from me (innocence, trust,
protection, freedom, joy, identity, childhood, self-respect, etc.), would You return it
to my heart and make my heart whole and complete again? Amen.”
