Fall and Die Prayer Explained!

The life of a Christian is full of battles.  You are fighting against the flesh, the world, Satan and his agents.  There is sickness attacking people's body, the affliction from agents of satan is real, so a Christian should be prepared to fight the battles of life.

I have often heard Ministers criticizing 'fall and die' prayer as though when you say such prayers, you are addressing a person, NO.  You are rather addressing the forces of darkness responsible for troubling you.  There are attacks unto death and there should be some killing prayers to terminate them.

So, fall and die prayers can be classified as killing prayer seeking to terminate deadly attacks from the kingdom of darkness.  In saying such prayers, you are addressing the problem directly.  They are authority prayers said in faith according to the scriptures in Mark 11:22-24, in which Jesus told the multitude to:

"Have faith in God.  For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 

Note that:

1. They are not prayers said to God, but direct to the enemy, or the problem troubling the person.  

2. It is not a prayer against human being, but against wickedness.

3. The death mentioned here is spiritual death, not physical death, so that when you invoke the killing prayer of fall and die, you are terminating the power behind the wickedness.

4. When you command cancer attacking a person to die, you are speaking death to the infirmity and not the person suffering from Cancer.

5. It is for the operation of the enemy to end in failure Again.


6. The death being discussed here is spiritual death and re is spiritual death.  If you pray that the forces attacking you should die, you are speaking death to the satanic power attacking you, and not the person.  

In fall and die prayer, the Believer is exercising his authority in Christ.  It is a powerful prayer that requires that the person praying is in good standing before God,  he is not like the sons of Sceva in Acts of Apostles.  He is abiding in Christ and the word of God dwelleth richly in him, then whatever the person asks, it shall be done unto him. (Matt 6:14,15)

When the 'mountain' is a person, the Believer recognizes the devil as the enemy, and not the person attacking him.  He is angry and offended at the devil, the invisible power behind the wickedness, so he goes ahead to command the devil operating in the life of the person troubling him to fall to the ground and die in Jesus name.  Once it is said in faith it is established.

David was a man that fought so many wars and obviously had a lot of enemies. So, his prayers were diverse and often acidic - see them in the book of Psalms, but God established them. The prophets also called down fire and made prophetic decrees, which God confirmed with signs and wonders.  

In all those instances, the prayers brought glory to the Lord and established His counsel.  It is the same with fall and die prayer, it must be said in faith, to secure deliverance from the works of the devil.

A Command and Manifestation:

When you command the demon operating in the life of a person to fall down and die, you are not speaking to the person, but the power behind the evil works the victim is suffering.  It could be the spirit of infirmity, untimely death etc they will hear you and depart.

This is usually seen at deliverance grounds, whenever a relevant prayer point is mentioned, addressing demons of affliction, sickness and untimely death troubling people, you will see the victim falling to the ground crying or coughing, even without anyone touching them.  

When the person rises from the floor, he or she is free, the sickness is gone forever.  The word was spoken with power by an obedient servant of God, and the demons have no choice but to depart at the mention of the name Jesus.  

A person afflicted can also command the demon troubling him/her to get out in the name of Jesus and it is done for him if he has faith in God.  It is never said to a person, but the evil operating in the life of such a person.

Types of Prayer in the bible

There are at least 7 types of prayers revealed in the bible, namely:

1. The prayer of faith: James 5:15 says, “And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up.” 

2. The prayer of agreement (also known as corporate prayer): After Jesus’ ascension, the disciples “all joined together constantly in prayer” (Acts 1:14). 

3. The prayer of request (or supplication): We are to take our requests to God. Philippians 4:6 teaches, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” 

4. The prayer of thanksgiving: We see another type of prayer in Philippians 4:6: thanksgiving or thanks to God. “With thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” 

5. The prayer of consecration: Jesus made such a prayer the night before His crucifixion: “And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, ‘My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will’” (Matthew 26:39).

6. The prayer of intercession: Many times, our prayers include requests for others as we intercede for them. We are told to make intercession “for everyone” in 1 Timothy 2:1. 

7. The prayer of imprecation: Imprecatory prayers are found in the Psalms (7, 109). They are used to invoke God’s judgment on the wicked and thereby avenge the righteous.  Your 'Fall and die' prayers may be located under this theme.


Friends, Jesus is coming soon.  If you have not yet received Him as Lord and Saviour, I plead with you to do it now.  If you are ready to surrender your heart to Christ, say this prayer: 

Heavenly Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus Christ.
I believe that Jesus died for my sins and rose again for my justification. I repent of my sins and ask for forgiveness. I ask Jesus to come into my heart and reign as my Lord and Saviour.  

I receive Him by faith and I am born again!
