When we are in Christ, we strive to be obedient to Him. Most of us have a built-in mechanism to tell lies. However, we can allow the Holy Spirit to cleanse us from all lies.
It is important to be truthful at all times because lies can cause a lot of pain and destruction. It can destroy relationships and cause irreparable damage to others’ lives. We should always pray for ourselves and others to be protected from lies.
God stands for what is true, and the devil is only a liar, known as “the father of all lies.” If we follow God, we should pray and ask Him to keep us from lying to ourselves and to others.
1) Short Prayer to Expose Lies
“Father in the Heavens above, I pray that You will come and expose the lies said about me/my family.
Holy Spirit, I pray for Your help in exposing the lies that are being told about me. They’re having a bad impact on my mind and life.
Please, Father God, I need Your help in revealing the truth about my life and that of my family. May You forgive those who have sinned and lied, they need You in their lives.
Thank You, Jesus. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Lies can be devastating and cause much pain. It may seem unimportant to some, especially if they have never been the target of lies.
It can be very painful, especially if it comes from close family or friends we trust.
We can imagine how Jesus must have felt when Peter betrayed Him through his lies.
Even though he denied Him, Peter did lie about knowing Jesus. He lied three times, as we see in Mark 14:66-72.

2) Unfailing Prayer to Expose Lies from Someone
I come before You today with great sadness. I ask that You expose the lies that have been told about me.
(Name of person) has been lying about me for so long now. Please allow the truth to be revealed. I bend my knees before You to reveal the truth. I’ve lived most of my life according to Your plans and You know I don’t deserve this in my life.
Touch (name of person) heart’s and let him/her find Your grace and mercy too. Make him/her feel the need to confess his/herlies right now.
Thank You Father, for listening to my prayers and answering my requests. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
It may seem irrelevant to some that others lie about us. However, the lies cause much hurt and pain.
This is simply so because the words that are spoken are untruths and misinterpretations of one’s life.
After you say this prayer, the person will soon tell you the all truth. No matter what they did or why they did it. They will feel the need to confess to you their lies.
Wait paitently and say this prayer every night, until the person confesses everything.
3) Prayer for Truth to be Revealed
“In the Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, I pray to You, Lord, that You will help me reveal the truth about my life.
My life is in Your hands, O God, and I pray that You will provide a solution to revealing these lies.
I also ask You to forgive the person who started all the lies, as I know their mind is not in the right place. May they feel Your love and power too.
Thank You, Father, that I can come to You with anything. Thank You that I can even ask You to set me free from the lies about me. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
People who lie do not think of the consequences of their lies. There is nothing much we can do to stop them. We can, however, ask the Lord to deal with such incidents.
Always pray for those who lie about you. Pray that the Lord will touch their lives and inspire them to repentance.
Be prepared, even now, to forgive them. Jesus taught us this in Matthew 6:12, “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.”
Even though you might not agree with the reason they lied, accept it, forgive them and move on. We all make mistakes.
4) Prayer for Someone to Stop Lying
“Father, You are my Lord and Savior. I come to You and ask that You reach the heart of (name of person) to stop lying about everything.

I believe that (name of person) needs Your help. His/her mind is not in the right place right now and he/she needs Your guidance to follow the path You’ve written for him/her.
I say this prayer in Your name, Father. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Instead of judging someone who tells lies, we should rather pray for them. They should be given the understanding that God does not appreciate lies.
They must come to understand that it is wrong to tell lies. As Deuteronomy 5:20 says: “And you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”
Sometimes that person doesn’t want to lie, it was the devil that messed with their mind. They can’t control it and they need you to help them.
With this prayer, you’re asking God to talk with that specific person and give them the strength to stop lying and fight the evil spirits.

God in Heaven, please allow him/her to see the wrong in the lies he/she is spreading.

All of us lie at some point. We even tell what we call “little white lies.”
However, we need to confess these as sins. If this becomes a habit, it is sinful behavior, and we should always pray for ourselves and others to tell the truth.
It may be easy for you to admit your lies and confess when you’re wrong. But that may not be as easy for everyone else.
They know they have lied but don’t have the courage and strength to admit it. Say this prayer for them, encourage them to confess their sins and stop lying.
6) Prayer for a Lying Husband
Today, I pray for my husband (husband’s name), whom I love dearly. Please help him to stop lying and become a truthful human being.
I ask, dear Lord, right now, that You help my husband become a strong person and stop lying immediately. He doesn’t have the strength to reach You but I know He needs Your guidance.
My heart reaches out to You and asks that You help my husband to speak nothing but the truth, Father. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Sometimes, there are valid reasons for husbands to lie, such as keeping a secret for a birthday party. However, if the lies are connected to sinful behavior, it becomes a heartbreaking problem.
Praying for someone with sinful lying is often hard, especially if it is a spouse. We have to be strong and pray for them so that God will reveal Himself to them.
Ephesians 4:15 says, “Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.”
7) Prayer to Stop Someone from Bothering You
“Heavenly Father, I come to You on bended knees. I pray that You will speak to the heart of (name of person) to stop interfering with me.
I ask that You speak to (name of person) and ask them to stop bothering me and my family.
Merciful Father, I bring (name of person) before You. Please allow them to see that they have no need to bother me and my family. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
We can come to God to pray for the person who keeps bothering us. If the interference is severe, we need to ask God for protection for our lives.
We can ask Him to cover us with His protection and employ angels to watch over us.
Psalm 91:11 says to us: “For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.”

Will These Prayers Really Work?
God answers all prayers that are prayed from a sincere and pure heart. When we pray, we should always follow the guidelines of God’s Word.
This is the way in which we can pray with a clear conscience and an upright spirit.
Our prayers will work if we ask in the way Job asked: “My words come from my upright heart; My lips utter pure knowledge.” — Job 33:3.
Can I Say Prayers for Anyone?
The Word of God tells us to pray for one another. We should make it a habit of praying for anyone.
As 1 Timothy 2:1-3 tells us:
“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.”
What a wonderful promise He makes if we pray for everyone!
Can I Light a Candle While I Pray?
Candles have a way of creating a calming and peaceful atmosphere in any room. When we pray for someone specific, we can focus our attention by lighting a candle for them.
We can use the candle to help us keep our prayers focused on a specific purpose or on a specific person. It is very helpful to use a candle in prayer time.
It is not a substitute for the person or God, but it will help us focus on what we need to pray for.
As we ask God to expose the lies of others, we see ourselves as a mirror in His sight. As Mark 11:25 says, “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.”
When we pray for others, we have to stand clean before God so that He can hear our prayers and answer them. When it comes to exposing lies, we can know that God will answer when we ask Him with a clear conscience and a clean heart.
Lies can cause much pain, and we need to pray for God’s help and for His intervention. This is true, especially if we have already tried to speak to the person involved.
Praying in steadfast love and care, in honesty and truth, with no judgment, we will surely hear God speak and answer our prayers.
