HELPS Word-studies

1809 eksaitéomai (from 1537 /ek, "completely out from," intensifying 154 /aitéō, "ask") – properly, to request a full "handing over" (a complete "take-over"). 1809 /eksaitéomai ("totally hand over") only occurs in Lk 22:31. Here Satan requests Peter be completely removed out of God's hands – and be put totally in his power. (What a frightening place to land!)

Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 1809: ἐξαιτέω

ἐξαιτέω, ἐξαίτω: 1 aorist middle ἐξητησαμην; to ask from, demand of (cf. ἐκ, VI. 2). Middle to ask from (or beg) for oneself: τινα, to ask that one be given up to one from the power of another — in both senses, either for good, to beg one from another, ask for the pardon, the safety, of someone (Xenophon, an. 1, 1, 3; Demosthenes, p. 546, 22; Plutarch, Per. 32; Palaeph. 41, 2); or in a bad sense, for torture, for punishment (Plutarch, mor., p. 417 d. de defect. orac. 14; in secular authors often with this sense in the active); so of Satan asking the apostles out of the power and keeping of God to be tried by afflictions (allusion being made to Job 1:1-12): Luke 22:31 (Test xii. Patr., p. 729 (test. Benj. § 3) ἐάν τά πνεύματα τοῦ Βελιάρ εἰς πᾶσαν πονηρίαν θλίψεως ἐξαιτησωνται ὑμᾶς).
