How to Pray for Autism

Praying for autism is really no different than praying for any other healing.

Science says that all so-called “birth defects” or “congenital disorders” are either physical, intellectual, or developmental and are divided into 2 categories: 1) structural disorders, such as malformation or, 2. functional disorders,  such as CP, mental retardation, and autism. 

However, all are actually attacks from the enemy against perfectly formed healthy children in the womb.

Jesus said it this way:

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.  John 10:10

It is really one of the most cowardly attacks by the enemy because the child is being attacked and can do nothing to defend itself.  Yes, the mother can spiritually defend the forming child from attack but most are completely unaware of what is happening until after the attack has already occurred.

This is why it is so important for mothers and fathers to know not only how to defend the child in the womb but also how to defend and heal the child after it has been attacked.

Most important is to realize that you did nothing wrong to bring this upon your child.  You are not to blame for any of it.  The enemy is to blame for all of it.  Read John 10:10 again.  If your house is robbed, you are not to blame.  The robber is the only one to blame.  Even if you believe that you left the door unlocked.

One exception to this may be vaccinations.  Many of these chemical concoctions attack the nervous system and which can lead to a short circuit in the brain which is then diagnosed as autism.  If this is you and you did it in ignorance, the medical establishment is the culprit for deceiving you.  Simply repent and you will be forgiven and restored. 

My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:  1 John 2:1

Sin cannot hinder healing.  Notice in James  the healing comes first and then the forgiveness of sins if any. 

Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.  James 5:14-15   

It is also not a curse that was passed on from prior generations.  God did away with generational curses a long time ago and told us clearly that we could no longer use that saying as an excuse.  See here:

Generational Curses Cancelled

Back to how to pray for Autism.

It is pretty basic to command healing from autism.  However, it is much more what you do after you pray that will have you see victory or defeat.

More about that later.  Let’s first disciple how to pray or rather command healing for autism.

Prayer instructions:

Lay your hands on your child and command the following loud and strong.

“Thank you Father that you love (name) and that You don’t want to see him/her suffer one more minute because Jesus already paid for him/her with the stripes on His back.  Now in Jesus name I command the spirit of infirmity and of autism to get out of this body NOW!  I hereby cancel the world’s report and declare the report of the Lord that (name) is healed.  I command all cognitive, mental and functional ability to be completely restored from head to toe in Jesus name.  So be it!  Amen!”

Now realize that your child was already healed 2,000 years ago.  You are just ministering to them what was already provided in Him.  Jesus paid the price with the stripes on His back and He deserves to get what He paid for.  Read this article which addresses this fact:

You Are Already Healed

If it was not God’s will to heal man, He would not have sent His only begotten Son to be tortured at the whipping post and on the cross for His body to be broken for you.  So stand firm that it is all of God’s will that your child is already healed.  Now let’s work on the manifestation. 

I call it “the working of miracles”.

Declare it so and adapt these healing declarations to apply to your child and declare for them on their behalf.  Your child is your property for which God made you responsible until they are adults.  The enemy has no authority whatsoever over them.  You do.  Declare this in no uncertain terms.

From this day forward forever, you will never ever use the word autism again.  Your child is now healed and no longer autistic.  Only their motor and cognitive skills need to catch up with them from where they were left behind developmentally when they were suppressed by the oppressor.   Read how to effectuate this in this article:

Healed of Autism

According to your faith so be it unto you as Jesus told us plainly.  And unto your child as being your property.  You have dominion over them. When you prayed, you must believe that the very thing you prayed for, you have now received and you shall have it.  Not my words but Jesus’ words in Mark 11:24.  Did you believe that you received it?  Learn how this operates here from my own personal healing experience:

Did You Believe That You Received?

For expectant mothers and fathers:

Come against the enemy preemptively by laying your hands on the child and declaring the following:

“This child is our property under our authority given to us by God and we dedicate this child to the Lord Jesus Christ.  No weapon formed against it shall prosper.  This child is hidden in Christ just as Jesus was hidden from the enemy when Herod slaughtered all the children because the enemy could not find Him as an infant.  We declare health and life unto our child in Jesus name.  So be it and no other way!  Amen!” 

An excellent resource with many examples of total victory are available in Andy Hayner’s book God Heals Birth Defects from which I have gleaned most of this information and have applied it and seen miracles as in the above article.

Please share your testimonies below to share your victory with others to encourage them that we are victors over all that the enemy throws at us.

lo, I give to you the authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and on all the power of the enemy, and nothing by any means shall hurt you;  Luke 10:19 YLT

    1. Annie, I love your faith. Just remember that you are asking with the full expectation of receiving whatsoever you desire. “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” Matthew 21:22 and “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Mark 11:24. Also realize that in Luke 10:19 Jesus gave us the authority to tread on serpents and scorpions which this spirit of oppression is and the root cause of autism. You have Jesus’ authority to cast it out and command it never return. Once this spirit that has been oppressing your child is cast out, their cognitive and motor skills will start to catch up to where they should have been without the oppression. Please keep me posted. I expect a great report!


      1. Thank you for your message.
        I stand upon the promise of Philippians 4 v 19. The Lord will supply all my son’s need to grow and develop his cognitive and fine motor skills in Jesus Name.
        Your messages were encouraging. God bless you. I will surely keep you posted


    2. A Resounding Ameeeen in the matchless name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I cover Araoluwa Oluwamayomikun Paul with the precious blood of Jesus. He is healed with the blood of Jesus that transfuses his body and he will live his life in the prosperity of God almighty Amen.


    1. Well, that is what I wrote the article for so you would know how to do it yourself effectively. But I will still be happy to pray for your son. I will contact you tomorrow Sunday at the telephone number you sent in the email.


  1. Hi Mr Darte, thanks for this article.
    We have a child with autism in our cell group, he is 13 years old now. We have prayed over him for months each time we meet in our cell group, we command the spirit of autism to go, command the brain to be functioning perfectly, tell the child that he is loved, that God knew him when he was formed in his mother’s womb. But we haven’t seen any manifestation till now.
    If it is caused by evil spirit, it shouldn’t take months right? But if it is caused by natural cause, like vaccine injury, then we need to focus on telling the brain to function normally? Or Is it possible that what his mother or his relatives at home speak about him will negate our declaration?


    1. Hi Peter, your first confession “We have a child with autism in our cell group” does not line up with Mark 11:23 “he will have whatever he says”.  You have just confessed and confirmed that this child is not healed but has autism.  Do you see that?  Once you lays hands on a child and command the spirit of autism, which is an oppressing spirit of infirmity, to get out and stay out, then the oppressing spirit is cast out and the child no longer has “autism” but is healed and now it’s cognitive skills that have been oppressed all this time must further develop to catch up to it’s new healed cognitivism.  That is unless you did not believe that you have cast it out and gave it an open door to come back in by your unbelief and your confession that the child has autism.  Also a spirit of autism is an autistic spirit and is itself autistic when you command it to do something and will stubbornly not listen to you unless you firmly believe that you have cast it out and commanded it not to return but also that you act on that fact and do not back down.  Devils will always test your resolve as to what you believe to find a justification not to be evicted.  IOW: you can no longer say that the child is autistic or treat it in any way as still being autistic.  You must now act on the word and your belief that the child is already healed and treat it as such and the child will rise to your level of expectation.  The child is the parents’ property, their flesh and blood and their responsibility.  They must be in agreement with this or yes, their conversation to the contrary will negate your declarations.  If they keep confirming that their child is autistic and hoping that he somehow will be healed, that is not faith but doubt and wavering.  Especially if they say it in front of the child who can hear it and the child will act on their belief that he is autistic.  They must believe that their child was already healed 2,000 years ago and that they have been given the authority to withstand the devil and all his serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and that nothing shall by any means hurt them (Luke 10:19) no matter what the cause.  Is anything too difficult for God?  The first boy we healed of autism was over the phone with the mother in full agreement to believe that he had received his healing (Mark 11:24) and worked with him to establish this fact.  You can read her testimony here: 
      I would be happy to join you on a conference call with the parents to pray for him and to disciple the parents.  Just let me know.
