HOW TO BREAK GENERATIONAL CURSES
“The Lord, the Lord
God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,
keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and
that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon
the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the
fourth generation.” Ex. 34:6-7; Ex.
20:5; Deu. 5:9; Nu. 14:18.
"Our fathers have
sinned, and are not; and we have borne (been punished for) their
iniquities." Lam. 5:7.
“A bastard shall not
enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he
not enter into the congregation of the Lord.” Deu. 23:2.
Not all sins are caused by generational curses or
iniquity. Iniquity refers to the
tendency to commit the same sins as your ancestors. In some families, there is a murderer in
every generation, or certain physical and mental diseases or mishaps. In one family I prayed for in Sarawak, all four siblings had an oldest child die in an
accident. A woman 27 years of age came to me asking for a divorce. This was her seventh divorce. She said, ”My mother had five divorces and my
grandmother had seven too.” King David
repented of his adultery with Bathsheba and prayed, “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive
me.” Ps. 51:5. One of David’s ancestors was Rahab (Rachab),
the harlot. Mt. 1:5.
redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is
written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:" Gal. 3:13.
There are a number of ways to break generational curses of
iniquity, and we offer the simple prayer below that we have used often.
FATHER, WE COME TO YOU IN THE NAME OF YOUR SON JESUS, OUR
LORD AND SAVIOR. I FORGIVE ANY AND ALL OF
MY ANCESTORS WHO HAVE COMMITTED SINS THAT HAVE BROUGHT CURSES OF INIQUITY DOWN
UPON ME AND MY DESCENDANTS. PLEASE
FORGIVE THEM TOO.
JESUS CHRIST REDEEMED ME FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW, BEING
MADE A CURSE FOR ME: FOR IT IS WRITTEN, CURSED IS EVERY ONE THAT HANGETH ON A
TREE. GAL. 3:13.
BY THE NAME OF JESUS AND BY THE PRECIOUS BLOOD THAT HE SHED
ON THE CROSS, I HEREBY BREAK EVERY GENERATIONAL OR ANCESTRAL CURSE THAT CAME
DOWN UPON ME AND MY CHILDREN BECAUSE OF SINS COMMITTED BY ANY ANCESTOR OF MINE,
GOING BACK TWENTY GENERATIONS ON MY FATHER’S SIDE AND TWENTY GENERATIONS ON MY
MOTHER’S SIDE AND INTO MY CHILDREN. I
DECLARE ALL GENERATIONAL CURSES BROKEN IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN..
THEN, BIND UP ALL SPIRITS THAT CAME IN BECAUSE OF THE CURSES
AND COMMAND THEM TO COME OUT IN JESUS’ NAME.
