The 6 Steps To Breaking a Generational Curse

Last updated on:

Here are the 6 basic steps that you will need to take in order to be able to receive total deliverance from any demons who may have followed you into your adult life as a result of any severe transgressions made by one or both of your natural parents.

I will first list them out one right after the other so that you can see exactly what you are going to have to do, and then I will show you exactly how to do each of these steps under the appropriate captions below.

Here are the 6 steps and the order in which they must be done:

  1. The full surrender
  2. Confess the sins of your sinning parent to God the Father
  3. Be willing to fully forgive your sinning parent
  4. Break any ungodly soul ties with the sinning parent
  5. Break the curse line of the demons
  6. Verbally command the demons to leave you in the name of Jesus Christ

Now here is a full explanation of exactly what you will need to do in each one of these steps, and then the exact battle prayer that I had given to this 16 year old girl that will have all 6 of these steps properly incorporated into the battle prayer itself.

1. The Full Surrender

The very first thing you are going to have to do is to be willing to come into a full surrender of you and your entire life with the Lord. We have another article in our site in the Bible Basics section titled, “The Full Surrender.”

In this article, I explain to you exactly what this full surrender is all about, give you all of the verses from Scripture to back up what God is looking for in this full surrender, and then give you a good full surrender prayer that you can actually use to go before the God the Father to make this full surrender with Him.

The very first rule in spiritual warfare, before you can even begin to do battle with demonic spirits, is that you have to be walking and operating in a full surrender with the Lord. If you are not willing to come into this full surrender with the Lord where He will now be the One to take over the reigns of your life and lead your life into the direction that He will now want it to go in – then there will be no help and no deliverance from these demons.

Here is the verse from the Bible that gives us this specific revelation:

“Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)

Notice the first four words – “Therefore submit to God” – and notice this verse starts out with this command.

What this means is that you first have to be willing to fully submit to God before you can even begin to resist and fight against the devil and his demons to make them flee from you.

Submitting to God means you have entered into this full surrender with Him. You have to be willing to fully surrender every part of your being to Him – body, soul, and spirit along with your entire life over to Him.

Again, all of this is fully explained to you in our article titled, “The Full Surrender” in the Bible Basics Section of our site.

If you are willing to make this full surrender with the Lord where He will now be the One who will be in total control of your life and lead it in the direction that He will now want it to go in from here on in – then you will now be ready for step 2.

2. Confess the Sins of Your Sinning Parent to God the Father

The next thing you are going to need to do is to fully confess out the sin or sins of the sinning parent to the Lord. As you will see in the Scripture verse I will list below, God is wanting you to acknowledge and then confess out those sins direct to Him. Here is the verse:

“But if they confess their iniquity and THE INIQUITY OF THEIR FATHERS, with their unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to Me, and that they also have walked contrary to Me … then I will remember My covenant with Jacob, and My covenant with Isaac and My covenant with Abraham I will remember …” (Leviticus 26:40, 42)

Why would God want you to confess out the sins of your father or mother when you had nothing to do with their sins in the first place?

I believe the main reason could be that God may want you to know exactly why these demons are coming after you in the first place – and that reason is because of the severe sins your sinning parent has committed against the Lord.

God wants you to have full knowledge as to what is going on behind the scenes in the spiritual realm, and by confessing out what sins you know your sinning parent has committed against the Lord – you are showing Him that you have the knowledge and the understanding that these original sins is what has caused all of these events to occur as they have done in your own personal life.

In the battle prayer I will list out below, this girl not only had to confess out the sins of her own natural father, but she also had to confess out the sins of his father, who was an abortionist responsible for the killing of thousands of unborn children.

If you can trace back through your family line any type of heavier sin or sins that your grandparents may have been involved in, it would be my strong recommendation that you also confess out the sins of these grandparents, and possibly your great grandparents if you can trace some of these heavier sins that far back.

When you get into this part of the prayer, you just simply confess out exactly what heavier sins you know your sinning parent has committed against the Lord.

What heavier sins that you do not know about can also be added into the prayer to make sure that you cover all of your bases with the Lord. I will show you exactly how to word all of this out in the battle prayer below.

3. Be Willing to Fully Forgive Your Sinning Parent

As a result of some of these heavier kinds of sins and transgressions against the Lord, some of the children in these types of dysfunctional families may end up getting either physically, verbally, and/or sexually abused.

As a result of this kind of extreme abuse, some of the children may end up harboring and holding onto deep feelings of guilt, hate, anger, rage, and unforgiveness towards the abusive sinning parent.

If those deep and intense kinds of negative feelings are not properly dealt with early on – these kinds of heavy negative emotions will settle down deep into the child’s mental and emotional makeup, and a mental stronghold will then form out giving the demons plenty of negative energy to attach to and feed on.

Before you can cast the demons out, you will first have to be willing to fully forgive your sinning parent for whatever they have ever done to you – no matter how bad, how vile, and how vicious some of their abusive acts may have been towards you.

Even if you do not feel like your emotions or thoughts could possibly line up with making this kind of confession before the Lord – all God is asking from you at this time is your mental cooperation with Him on this issue and make the best effort you can to verbally and mentally forgive your parent before the Lord.

Tell the Lord that you will not hold any unforgiveness towards that parent, that you know that your parents final judgment will rest in His hands, and that you will now let that parent go into His hands for His final judgment and vindication.

The Bible tells us that any type of vengeance in this life will always belong to the Lord – not to us – and not to any other family members who would like to try and get even for you with the original, sinning, abusive parent.

For those of you who think you may have a hard time in making this kind of confession before the Lord – we have another article in our site that goes much deeper into this kind of a problem.

The article is titled, “How to Handle Negative Feelings When Wronged by Someone Else.” This article is in the Psychological Issues section of our site.

It would be my strong recommendation that you also read this article. In this article, I give you all the appropriate verses from Scripture that deal with this kind of heavier problem and how to be able to really forgive an abuser or someone who has unjustly wronged you to a more severe degree in this life.

God, though the power of the Holy Spirit operating on the inside of you, can give you an inner healing from many of these kinds of negative emotions that may have settled in on you over all of these years as result of the abuse you may have had to put up with from your sinning parent.

There is healing and restoration from the Lord for you if you are willing to work with Him on it.

The above article will show you how to be able to receive this kind of inner healing from the Lord if you would really like to be set free from these kinds of negative emotions that will do nothing but rob you of your peace, joy, and happiness that you can have in the Lord.

Now here is why you are going to have to be willing to fully forgive your sinning parent for all of the abuse they may have inflicted upon you.

The following verse will tell you that before you get ready to stand and pray before the Lord – God will want you to fully forgive all of the people who have ever trespassed against you.

If you can’t or won’t forgive those who have trespassed against you, then this verse will tell you that God will not forgive you of your own trespasses when you trespass against other people.

And with God starting out this verse with the words “And whenever you stand praying” – the strong implication is really there that He may not even be willing to hear any of your prayers until you can agree to forgive all of those who have ever wronged you in this life.

And if God will not be willing to hear any of your prayers – then you will have little or no chance of getting any of your prayers answered.

And if you cannot get any of your own personal prayers answered with God – then you will have little or no chance on getting Him to deliver you from the demons who may be attacking you.

This is why it is so vitally important that you be willing to fully forgive all of those who have ever hurt, harmed, or transgressed against you in any way – which will include both of your parents if they are guilty of this, and any other siblings or friends who may have hurt you in your past.

Here is this most solemn and powerful verse from the Lord:

“AND WHENEVER YOU STAND PRAYING, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that you Father in heaven may also forgive your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” (Mark 11:25)

If you are willing to take this step with the Lord and fully forgive your parent or parents for whatever wrongs they may have inflicted upon you, no matter how bad or vicious those wrongs may have been, then you will now be ready for step 4.

4. Break Any Ungodly Soul Ties With the Sinning Parent

As a result of the natural, parent-child relationship that immediately develops when a child is born into the family – a strong spiritual bond will form out between the child and his parents – even if one or both of the parents end up abusing that child over a period of many years.

This is why it is such a shock to a child’s senses when they first start to receive any kind of extreme abuse from the sinning abusive parent.

Their first natural reaction is that there must be something wrong with them, or that they must have done something wrong themselves to warrant receiving this kind of abusive behavior.

It isn’t until the child starts to get older, wiser, and smarter that they start to see the abusive and sinning parent for what they really are – someone who is acting out on very sick and evil impulses with no effort to try and control it.

When a sinning abusive parent gets this far out of control and is doing horrible things to their children – then what the child must do when they get old enough to understand all of this is to break any ungodly and unhealthy soul ties that may have formed out earlier on in the family with this sinning parent.

This sinning parent will always be your natural parent by blood, but that does not mean you have to stay spiritually attached to this evil, sinning, and dysfunctional parent.

A soul tie is any type of spiritual bonding that can occur between two people who have entered into any kind of personal relationship.

A soul tie can occur between two spouses, two friends, two siblings, and between a parent and a child.

A soul tie can be a good and healthy one like what occurs between two people who marry for true love and who are capable of loving their children and their friends in a good and godly manner.

However, a soul tie can also be a bad one, where the personal relationship becomes dysfunctional with one of the persons becoming the dominant and abusive one in the relationship, and the other person becoming the submissive one who is being abused and hurt by the dominant person.

What happens in the spiritual realm is that when one person is being severely abused and dominated by the other, an ungodly and unhealthy soul tie can develop. And if that kind of unhealthy soul tie develops during the abusive relationship, then it has to be completely broken in order to be completely set free from both the abuser and any demons who may be attacking you as a result of the legal rights given by the abuser to the demons.

Demons will move in to feed off any kind of unhealthy soul tie that could develop – so you have to make sure that any of these kinds of destructive soul ties get completely broken when you go into this kind of battle prayer.

Sad as this is to say – this special, parent-child bond that should be forming out in the early years of that child’s development in the family can be completely ruined and completely severed if that parent starts to enter into any kind of abusive behavior towards that child or any of the other members in the family.

What this means is that if the sinning parent has gone too far with the abuse of a child over a certain number of years – then the child has to break any unhealthy and ungodly soul ties that may have formed out in those earlier years when they get old enough to be able to understand all of this and then is able to do this on his own.

The Bible tells us to choose our friends carefully in this life. Just because your sinning and abusive parent is your natural father or mother by blood does not mean you have to stay spiritually attached to them if they refuse to pull out of their evil and wicked ways towards you or any of your loved ones in the family.

In the battle prayer I will list below, I had the young girl break the soul tie between her and her natural father due to the murderous spirits that were still operating on her father.

If you are willing to fully break any ungodly and unhealthy soul ties that may have developed and formed out over the years between you and your sinning parent – then you will now be ready for step 5 – which will be to fully break the curse line that the demons have been feeding and operating on, which has been giving them the full legal right to be able to keep attacking and tormenting you over all of these years.

5. Break the Curse Line of the Demons

Once you have properly completed the above 4 steps, then you will be ready to fully break the generational curse line that the demons have been feeding and operating on.

As you will see in how I word this part of the battle prayer below – you will first ask God to do this for you since you have completed the above 4 steps for Him. Then you will take His authority and His power and verbally command this curse line be fully broken in the name of Jesus Christ.

The Bible tells us in Matthew 16:19 that whatever we bind or loose on this earth will bound or loosed up in heaven.

In other words, God has already given us His power, anointing, and authority to trample over all the power of our enemies – and some of our enemies are definitely demonic spirits.

When you get into this part of the battle prayer, you will be taking this spiritual authority direct from God the Father, and you will be commanding every inch and every part of this curse line to be completely broken, completely severed, and completely demolished in the name of Jesus.

Once this curse line has been completely broken and completely severed between you and your sinning parent – then you will be ready for the last and final step to be able to receive your deliverance – and that is to verbally command all of the demons to now leave you in the name of Jesus Christ.

6. Verbally Command the Demons to Leave You in the Name of Jesus Christ

Once this curse line has been fully broken, the demons will have nothing left to be able to hold onto, and you will now be able to verbally engage with them and command them to now leave you in the name of your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Again, I will show you how to word out this kind of battle command in the battle prayer below. Remember – the Bible tells us that the Word of God is our Sword. You directly engage with demons by verbally engaging with them.

If you try and verbally command the demons to leave you without completing the above 5 steps – their legal rights will not have been properly broken and they will not leave.

You must first make sure that you have properly completed all 5 of the above steps before you actually step into the arena with these demons to command them to now leave you in the name of Jesus.

  1. I was very happy to learn how to break the generational curses but I have a doubt my parents are not alive my husband is a hindu idol worshipper and I am a believer my children are also idolators. My son is 17 yrs old and a school dropout he is a drug addict and has many many other habits which I really dont know to describe. How do I pray in such a situation. My husband does not believe in Jesus he says he is dead but please help me to clear my doubts.

    • Dear Sister, Lord Jesus Christ is not dead but He is Alive. He rose up on the 3rd day. He is the only way to Peace and fulfillment in Life. i have tasted Him and continue to do so.

    • We are not to marry non-believers. We are to bring Jesus’ teachings and God’s Word to our family. If they reject it, those people are to be rejected. It is clearly written about in the Bible. Deceivers CONSTANTLY misstate the teachings of Jesus, saying “He came to bring peace!”. That is CLEARLY not what He Himself said. Love God with all your heart, mind and spirit, and love your neighbor as yourself. You can’t love God and abide by evil. Jesus said abiding by God’s law will bring conflict with famly…you are to cling to God, not Man. Best wishes.

      • ed

        The sister (S Bhanumathi) could have been married while she was a non-believer herself and she can’t leave her husband except in the case of adultery – Matthew 5:32. She contacted this website to seek help and clear her doubts, not to be condemned but given a solution.

        • God bless you for your compassion and courage to speak up for her.

    • Whether your parents, great parents etc are dead or alive, you still need to break every generational curses of your forefathers. Then after you complete that you can then pray for your whole family. For now deal with the genrational curses.

    • Pray for God’s direction and God will direct you. Don’t speak negatives word about your boy because you have power over him as the parent above all seek God for Anointing Because you can only defeat what you have power over, or you go to a man of God that have power of God. Thanks and God bless you.

    • Hello sister, let the Holy Spirit lead you in your prayers and steps of breaking generational curses.. As the bible says we don’t know how to pray but he will lead us and teach us in our prayers.
      Your case is not different from others it just presented itself in a different way. But praise be to God nothing is impossible when you are walking with the Holy Spirit.

  2. Good afternoon , my name is thomas . My famely has a curse , my grand dad shot him selfe and i have hurd it from my dad that he also want to shoot him self and i have also thourt of it as a exat . Please help !!!???

    • First of all you need to know that satan wants to kill you. He is a spirit and comes to you in your thoughts. Second – you need the spiritual protection and the only One who can do it is Jesus because He is the only One who has power over your enemy. To get His protection you need to submit your life to Him by the prayer of repentance. Third – you need to do what says in this article. Its is to verbally confess Jesus as Lord and ask him personally to protect you every time suicidal thoughts coming to your mind.

    • Hey, how are you now? Have you broken the curse yet? This sin is only broken through fasting and praying and believing that God will set you free. Don’t give up. I have gone through similar problems but my generational curse was something else and as I grow in Christ the more dominion God gives me to pray against these things and to break all generational curses in my bloodline from my dad and my mom’s side. Please know that you are not alone, God is with you and we are fighting this good fight with you, together! 🙂

  3. I went through these 6 steps and I thank God that He delivered me from the generational curse line in Jesus Name

  4. I’d like to ask for clarification if I may: I understand the Generational Curses are a very popular teaching but according to Ezekiel 18 there is no more such thing as a generational curse anymore. Abba Father even said to the Isrealites to never refer to it again!

    Eze 18:1 The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying, 2 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge? 3 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel. 4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die. 5 But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right, 6 And hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbour’s wife, neither hath come near to a menstruous woman, 7 And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment; 8 He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man, 9 Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord GOD.

    Eze 18:19 Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live. 20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

    To illustrate this point even better and in fact, if you are in Christ Jesus, you are a son of God and a Co-Heir and our Heavenly Father have NOT sinned! The fact of the matter is that demons are in these people’s life illegally and should be dealt with accordingly and no mercy is to be shown to them. You are a NEW CREATION in Christ Jesus and OLD THINGS have passed away the moment that He is made the Lord and Master of your life.

    • I want to say thank you for this scripture….I was reading this article and your comment just made all the hairs on my neck stand up..!!! Jesus is Lord of my life and no other… I am a new creature… and amen.

      • Demons try to manufacture legal rights. This is part of it. We are under a new covenant by Jesus. The way they get a hold of us is when we give them room in our house. We do get junk from our parents and we need to clean house. Parents are a covering for children and if they leave a door open a thief is liable to come in and steel and or harm the children. To say we don’t get junk from our parents is like saying I can be attacked by demons, I have a sword. but never take the sword out and use it. Knowing the word of God and using it properly against the enemy are 2 different things. Bless all of you guys here in Jesus Christ.

        • Wonderful answers! I can’t wait to start following these steps and it makes so much sense that I will God wants me to complete this mission because although my father wasn’t there due to his imprisonment and deportation, I have a great relationship w my dad and already forgiven him and he can help me with giving me info of the sins of his parents, my grand parents have committed …and, I can only imagine what my grandparents have done in Dominican republic. Trusting Christ with my spiritual journey breaking the blockades of success and triumph in the holy name of Yeshua

    • I understand what your saying but it is true that all Souls are the Lords, and we are a new creation and Jesus is our Savior, to all those who have accepted him as Lord and Savior.

      But the devil is real i am in a dark place right now what is important to me has seeming fallen apart, it is the devils job to bring discouragement , defeat, devastator, so yes it is very true that evil soul ties and Satan activity in the life of other so yes Generational curses are real my Great Grandfather was not a good provider also my Grandfather was not a good provider and my father die at the age of 66 and poor he had nothing to leave us but he did but evil intent was present from my Grandmother she was a evil woman and gave away all of my Grandfathers and my Father Home, so yes generational cures are present in my family I am the oldest Grand Child and I am walking in that right now the curse I am ordained Pastor and Minister and I am facing that right now the devil attack right were he know your weak, Most Christians don’t talk about family curses
      ( Which is not good and that’s what the devil wants you to do he don’t want us to confront our Sins and the Sins of our Fathers but it’s time NOW). I come against the evil of our day today and as I send this reply I bin EVERY evil and ungodly intent toward my mind, home wife and children,and grand children and I release the grace and the blood of Jesus Christ and his divine protection.

      • The best way to overcome financial struggles is to tithe. Malachi 3:10 says that will ‘rebuke the devourer.”

    • I have just read this and prayed as my father was violent and verbally abusive. When we are born again we are filled with the Holy Spirit and there is no room left for demons unless we do not fully empty ourselves so the Holy Spirit can fill us fully. Or later on we can pick up things in our lives again. Although we may have forgiven someone we can easily pick up unforgiveness again. If we have not totally forgiven those who have sinned against us or we hold on to soul ties to/with an ungodly relationship it allows a crack in our armour which demons will try to exploit. By following this teaching and prayer it is leading people to forgive and break the ties that give this crack for demons to exploit, which can become footholds and strongholds.

      I do not see it so much as a curse that is on each generation, one after the other, as a curse that causes the same damage in the next generation that can be exploited by the same demons making them an easy target and allowing the demons to feed on the same things. I think of them as like fleas jumping from one family member to the next. They are in close proximity and “taste” the same so are easy to transfer to. They will try to attack us and gain a foothold in our lives, unless we have put on our metaphorical protective suit, which for many could be long after they have become a Christian as God works in their lives.

  5. Hello, I’ve read through the article and you say you are going to “word a battle prayer below” in step 5 for breaking generational curses. The problem is that I do not see a battle prayer below. This article is otherwise very helpful. God bless you.

  6. HI AMesha, the battle prayer is on this page, this is a multi-part article.

    sorry for the confusion

  7. I am glad to have your guidance to break generational curse. my family specially there is a spirit that come from my mother always fighting me. My family believe in Jesus Christ but not strong enough to aspire some thing as believer.
    Mostly the fight me and against the God word when its not convent with their tradition

  8. Thanks a lot for the uplifting message about breaking the generational curse. I have a brother who is alcoholic and he is now married. My father was also alcoholic. Is it possible to break this generational curse on behalf of my brother even now. how do i go about it. Thank you.

  9. I appreciate all of your teachings except this generational course because I studied the bible and I did not see God speak generational curse from Adam up to present generation. In fact when Balak hired Balaam to curse Jacob’s generation, he failed but instead he speak the exact word of the Lord which says: “How can I curse whom God has not cursed?” Numbers 23:8 “Must I not take heed to speak what God has put in my mouth?”Numbers 23:12. Let us see what God spoke to the first generation: Genesis 3:14-17 says that when Eve sinned by eating the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil God cursed the serpent not Eve. When Adam also sinned, it was the ground that was cursed not Adam & God removed the curse of the ground during Noah’s generation according to Genesis 8:21 that says: “I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake”.The Bible says that God will only curse those who curse Abraham and his generation, Genesis 12:3 & also those who rob God as Malachi 3:9 says. Moses wrote the law of blessing & cursing but God gave people a choice: to obey and receive blessings or disobey & be under the curse of the law as Deuteronomy 28:2&15 says.But Jesus has already redeemed us from the curse of the law so that the blessings of Abraham be upon us.Galatians 3:13-14. Which means curse has no root or cause to be in the generation of people who received Jesus! For a curse without a cause shall not come Proverbs 26:1. So we don’t need to dig the sins of our forefathers as a curse to follow our generation because it is not biblical. Ezekiel 18:19-20 is clear that each one bear his own sin. The sin of the father cannot be imputed to the son or vise versa. In Exodus 20:5 which was quoted as the verse for generational curse, I examined it and the verse is talking about those people who worship idols and hate God. And it says “visiting iniquity” which are idolatry & hating God. Word visiting is different from cursing. God did not say he is cursing those idolaters & God haters but will visit. Idolaters and God haters are not believers and we believers cannot be under any generational curse because Jesus has redeemed us already. When Got visits two things can happen: those who who repent and receive Jesus will be saved but those who will not believe shall be condemned. Mark 16:16. However if a believer choose to sin and backslide without repentance that’s the only time he will encounter curse because the root of curse is sin. People are saying that when the mother is drunkard the daughter is also drunkard and it’s a generational curse. Let us not connect it with this subject because it is about the example that the mother give to the child. The child can make a choice not to be a drunkard. Also they say that when the parent got certain illness the children will have such illness. Maybe genetically it is true but spiritually we have the choice to believe and succumb to it or take authority over it. Because the bible says “according to your faith it shall be done unto you. My father & mother died of high blood pressure and they say we children will have the same but we didn’t believed & not one of us got high blood pressures! Let us understand well the word of God by the unction of the Holy Spirit our Teacher. God Bless you all!

    • AMEN! Thenx I have a better understanding now. I hope we can stop believing in this Generational curse. I have been thinking that there is a curse of heart breaks and singleness in our family but now I will not believe it anymore.
      May God enlighten us and give us a better understanding of his word.

  10. Why haven’t anyone answered WarriorSaint’s question?
    I Jesus died on the cross and paid for my freedom with His blood why must I still break a generational curse if Jesus set me free?

    • Read the testimonies. Why argue with success ? Try it for yourself.

    • Yes you are set free, but what about the children that are lost, we need to know what and how to pray for them…

    • Jesus took sin up on the cross and became sin for us and yet we still sin right? so Curses still need to be dealt with the difference is that we as Christians have the Key that Jesus gave us , Thru Jesus we have authority to deal with this that is the difference, to many Christians walking around oppressed, tormented and even committing suicide good Christians that Genuinely loved the Lord and all they needed was deliverance..

    • Use the sword God gave you. God gave us armor for a reason. Not to sit and say i don’t need to do anything with Gods armor, I don’t have to fight anything. Jesus saved us and made us able to fight the enemy so we can do Gods will. The Bible says we are in a battle and need to fight.

    • I agree with you
      If we are true Christians and love, honor Jesus we believed he died for us so our sins are forgiven. I dont believe God will punish us for other people sins , that would be so contrary to the word of Gof

  11. Chris,

    That is a good question. Maybe Christ set us free from certain things, but there are still other things that we have to battle. That is the only thing that I can think of.

  12. My brethren:
    The sacrifice of Jesus on the cross was enough to set us tree! What we need to do is to take the authority & power he has given us over the enemy. (Luke 10:19-20) In fact we don’t need to struggle..He has given us the authority to cast out the devil, so when the devil tries to attack you don’t fear cast him out! That generational curse is a lie of the devil. Jesus never prayed for breaking generational course at all. Even the early disciples never prayed such breaking of generational curse. In John 9:1-3 Jesus was about to pray for blind man from birth and he was being asked as to who sinned: the man or the parents, Jesus did not dig as to who sinned from his generation, he just answered: neither but it happened so that the power of God maybe manifested! So let us just do what Jesus has instructed to do. Cast out demons, lay hand on the sick, freely we receive, freely we give. (Matt.10:1 &8) In fact if we read John14:12 He said:” He that believe in me greater works than He does he shall perform. By the way I am a school of ministry teacher in Africa, I teach pastors and ministry workers here. Those who were taught about generational curses, I taught them what the Bible says and they exercise what they learned. And theresults: Drunkards & addicts are delivered, mad men came to right senses, aids victims got negative doctors report, harlots are transformed, barrens give birth,cripple walk & cancer patients are healed in our practicums. Glory be to God for 7years of manifestations and confirmations of His words as we believe, exercise and walk by them in Africa!

    • Parts Lou, I think I get a little bit confused with your presentation. 1. How do I cast out a spirit that is not yet inside me. You have said that when the devil tries to attack you, cast him out. He is trying to attack me and I cast him out from where?
      As regards the man born blind which used, I believe Jesus was not disputing the fact that people suffer because of the sins of their parents. He only said that that particular situation was for the purpose of God’s glory. The children of Israel knew this generational curse thing and that is what they were talking about.
      By the same argue,eat you are proposing that the sacrifice of Jesus was enough to set us free, then I wonder how demons could come into believers so that they cast them out. In your earlier submission you mentioned Ezekiel 18:19-20 you said talked about each person carrying their own sins; so does that mean that we don’t inherit our parents sins? If so then Adams’ sin would have his problem alone and not for us all to be declared sinners and coming short of God’s glory.

      One thing must be clear. When Jesus gave us the authority to cast out demons etc., he did not add any formula. He knows that the Holy Spirit will show as differently in different circumstances. I am from Africa and a pastor among idol worshipping communities and I know many who could not be delivered of demons until this generational curse thing was identified and broken. Thank so much. Let us not be quick to condemn others teaching as from the pit of hell until we grasp a full understanding.

      • I have to comment on these loving debates as we are all seeking the Word in Jesus name. I am going to speak on personal experience as the reason I was googling this topic and ran across this.

        I agree with parts of both your arguments and confused because so much information scripturally based on either side. I have the personal experience and these debates make this road terribly difficult as we are human and the Holy Spirit illuminates scripture to us in our quiet times. I was brought to my knees with my oldest child when I was brought to realization of how deep he had fallen into drugs which lead to stealing, lying, manipulation..etc.. My marriage to their father of 13 years ended in divorce because of many of those reasons plus more. Two years ago as my 17 old child was leaving my house to continue his path of destruction, I had a choice to recognize the demons I was dealing with or continue to ignore them. My love for my child had me fall into surrounding all an complete control to Jesus. It was here… that God impressed so many things through scripture on generational curses in a way I could of never come up with myself. I say this because even though I grew up in church, I did not dig into the word. I knew the some stories and I knew who Jesus’s character was, but in no way the depth of the word in which I was spoken to on this exact subject. Its two years later now, with constant seeking my Lord and working on seeking Him deeper at Liberty University. God spoke to me through Exodus 20:5. He told me to focus on Him and he will fight my battles with my son as I used the example of sacrificing my son to Him as Abraham did Isaac. I knew he loved him more than I ever could. My marching orders were to be obedient at even the smallest things he would continue to impress on me. At this moment he laid a sense of peace over me that my son would be okay. To be more point specific with generational my quiet time, it was laid upon me the demons that had been in my life that I never recognized as abnormal. I knew I had struggles that people around me didn’t seem to face. He gave me a deeper realization of all the generational curses that surrounded not only my ex and his family, in which I wanted to blame, but also in mine! As God impressed further to me, he showed me how Jesus did cast out the demons but I would never be able to do this without it being Jesus’s power to allow me to do this. All this was revealed at every step of obedience he was impressing on me to do and I obeyed. I had to recognize all these demons in order to cast out and rebuke every one of them in Jesus name. But…it goes deeper. I was spoken prophetically to at a womens conference by one speaker. She spoke one prophetic statement that day so there was no confusion to me on how it was for me. She spoke of my situation but followed it up by Isaiah 40:31.. the direct scripture I prayed over him and the football team so it was witnessed. The message was he was going to be ok. He moved back home after a year and a half this past weekend. Yes there is victory in this for sure; however, the thing I missed was once he had left my house, there was a peace, a peace in my house and trickled to the obedience of my younger children.

        I hate to speak of that because I love my children and that is so hard to say. But the peace was noted by my family members as well. How could I not recognize the demons? He moved back and while I have noticed some great success in his behaviors, I am recognizing the chaos beginning in my younger children and observed a slow progress of recognizing the generational curses. Not drugs but several others. As I recognize them, I am making him aware of each one. There is power in recognition of each of them so I see truth in this article. I see truth in Pst Lou’s comments because it is true that Jesus covered our sin and Jesus is the name in which we give power to be able to cast them out! However, if we can’t recognize each one, then how are we to make them run if we can’t be armored to pray to remove them? God loved us so much He gave us free will and with free will, we get to make our own choices. Sometimes, Christians, turn into prodigal children before they grow strong in their Christian walk, as in my son.

        The generational problems have been passed to each generation with a sense of making it ok and that is just who our family is. I couldn’t recognize it either until the demons were made stronger through observation of my own children. Being a child of God and learning to be a faithful one and not complacent, I stood up to break these curses. Ive never seen the devil work so hard. Im climbing bigger ladders in my life to reach other lost souls in my focus on Jesus. I see my son now trying to claim there isn’t a devil. The devil is now trying to convince him he isn’t real. This is so he can not feel guilty in the presence of the great power in Jesus as he lives amongst the Word being spoken daily.

        God told me he was going to be ok and I live in faith that he is going to recognize the generational curses and he will come fully back into the loving arms of His Savior. I just looked at the date of all these responses and this was the exact time at which all of this came to light. I don’t even know if you will be able to see this Naa Jato or Pst Lou, but I will take any prayer or advice you may have for me, as I see the purpose to recognize and cast out the demons in Jesus name!!

        • Shelley I am standing in the cap for my son who is over 40 but I wil not stop praying. Anger, resentment, abuse from his father the still gives him nightmares and he is a drug addict as well as drinking,which his grandmother on my late husbands side did as well. Please keep him in pray God Bless

    • Thank you for your article , i have been praying for my son for a long time , when he was 12 years of age he suffered a full spinal whiplash in a motor car accident while traveling to a friends place for a sleep over and this became a pain disorder that ruined his education and finally when given a drug called Lyrica for the pain it seems to have permanently caused memory impairment as well as an anxiety disorder even though he has not had a dose for 6 years , all this has meant that at the now age of 23 he is still struggling with his studies with no end in sight , but the more i pray about it the worse things seem to become , its like the devil is using my son and even my wife sometimes to hurt me , every parent wont’s to see there child do well ,why wont God heal him , why did God allow this to happen in the first place , i am poured out in despair and keep on praying ..

  13. My Husband says I am a Jezebel and I want to be in charge of his live. If I say that I want to serve the Lord, he tells me I am minipulating an want him to be guilty. I ve read this and want to be free but how can I get him to believe it and want to be free to. He says I’m working with my parents to make sure he is a nothing. They didn’t want me to marry him.

    • He sounds like he is manipulating you by projecting his insecurities and short comings on you. This is common. Recognize it for what it is, which is not love, and do not be afraid to break this ungodly soul tie. What God has joined together, let no man put asunder. However, God did not join all unions. Peace, love and many blessings.

    • Kim. many people blame others for their own shortcomings. alcoholics commonly blame their wives or parents or whoever else is close.
      I had a man who was constantly cheating on me – and he quoted the Bible against me saying that I was not to be jealous! He did not look at himself at all but told me I was the one sinning! It was very confusing to me at the time.
      You must read up what a Jezebel is (and seeking counsel from a trusted preacher or therapist would be a very good idea) – and decide for yourself if your behavior fits that label.
      I grew up in a very abusive home and it wasn’t until I was an adult and in a recovery program that I was able (with support) to do a “moral inventory” of MYSELF and know what my own character problems are. Since then nobody has been able to tell me who I am. God showed me.
      Best wishes and many blessings to you.

  14. Hi,

    The prayer for breaking a generational curse is for a specific person and her situation. It would be nice if you had a prayer that people could easily make their own. And a shorter version would be nice – less words, same power. Thanks! 🙂

    Also, thank you for this website. We need more of this type information for the believers. For many don’t know about or understand the battle that “is not against flesh and blood”.


  15. The biblical passage on which the extreme teaching of generational curses is based must be revisited in order to see how Scripture has been misapplied. Instructing the Israelites concerning the second commandment, God said, “You shall not bow down to them [idols and other gods] or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments” (Exodus 20:5,6). Idol worshipers and followers of other gods truly hate God. And as succeeding generations turn from God to idols and false gods, they too are haters of God and incur His wrath.

    The word “curse” is nowhere found in the Exodus passage. But if the punishment God promises idolaters is really a curse, one must ask who places the curse on the children? Human parents cannot cast curses. Neither is Satan mentioned as the source of such a curse. And if God who justly punishes sin places the curse on the children, who could break a curse instituted by God?

    There is no question about the fact that heredity and environment do pass some things on to descendants. But the passage must be read from the perspective of the finished work of Christ on the Cross. Nowhere in the New Testament do we find any reference to this concept. Strong emphasis on a generational curse binds rather than delivers believers. Outside the body of Christ, there may be evidence of a generational curse, but for believers the bondage and curse of sin are broken at salvation, even though there may be some natural traits or behavior patterns we must deal with through the help of the Holy Spirit.

    What is the appeal of the generational curse teaching? For one thing, it suggests that someone else is responsible for one’s wrongdoing. That fits in with the secular idea that all wrong behavior can be explained by a natural cause and need not be called sin. Then too, it offers a “quick fix” for a nagging moral sin. Instant deliverance from an evil habit like explosive anger sounds more attractive than the hard work and slower development of the fruit of the Spirit. But that is God’s design for leading the believer into a sanctified and holy life.

    The above statement is based upon our common understanding of scriptural teaching.

    • Annie thanks you for your comment. I read all the comments and wasn’t convinced until I read yours.

    • Hi Annie I thank you for what you have said on generational curses. I belive you are correct on what the bible says. I could not understand how someone like my self for example who has parents that have sinned and I have sinned(will not name them be here along time if I did!!) and have turned my life around, confessed my sins to the Lord, repented, and have accepted what he did on the cross for me and declared him to be my one and only God could still be cursed by the same God?.it says in the bible that we did not choose him but he chose us! And that jesus is the lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world. So I belive if there is a curse it is broken when you receive jesus as your Lord and saviour.

  16. Galatians 3:13

    We need to build each other up as christians. God uses all of us in different ways.

  17. Since it looks like this can be presented at least two completely opposite ways, both using scripture references, I think Holy Spirit knows if we should be confessing the sins of our fathers or not or if it’s okay either way, if we do or if we don’t. Walk by the Spirit and you shall not gratify the lust of the flesh. Holy Spirit teaches all things. I’ll be asking Him! Interesting food for thought though! When I do confess my own sins, and then confess for my family line back to Adam, and put all on the cross, and then command any related spirits to leave and never come back, it does seem to help me get free. And that helps my bottom line of not wanting to sin. Thanks all.

  18. I grew up from an abusive home, since then, even to my adulthood, I still fight low self esteem and self confident. its so glaring in my thought life. Please which book or post can I read? I want to find myself.

    • First of all I want to appreciate you as it takes a lot of courage to acknowledge your fault but this is the first step to progress and you are doing good.
      All I can say that it is God who can change you and not a book or yourself. The Bible says we are all sinners saved by grace. So if you first come to Jesus and receive Him as your personal Savior and Lord and Repent and ask God to forgive you for all your sins. He will come and dwell in you. Christine the hope of glory will dwell in you.
      2.You need to forgive your parents from your heart just as Christmas forgave you for all the abuse and low self esteem.
      3. Your need to take responsibility for your thought life and start changing it
      4. The Bible will help you do that as you read the word of God. It was wash you and cleanse you from all wrong thinking. It is like water that washes our minds and heart and Soul. need to see yourself I the light of the Scriptures the way God sees you and when he sees you he see potential and he loves you with all your fault and mistakes and low self esteem. There are any people I the Bible that suffered from low self esteem Moses was one of them. Bur God uses him mightily.
      Lastly surrender your life to Jesus and He will take your life and make something beautiful. In the book of Philippians 4:13 Paul sys I can do all things through Christmas who strengthens me.
      So Know that you are special in God sight and there is no second you and God loves you just the way you are but won’t keep you the way you are but change you for his glory.
      God bless you.

      • I thank you all for your responses. If we will remember that there is more armor than the helmet of salvation, we will have to agree that we have been equipped for a battle with an enemy. And our enemy is a wicked God-hating spirit who roams about seeking whom he might devour.
        All of us children of God are vulnerable to attacks by the Evil One. We will be attacked, and if we attempt to bring one of the lost sheep to redemption, we will need the whole suit of armor. Especially if the lost one has a demon.
        For my brothers and sisters who are not visited with generational consequences, please remember that we are not all given the same assignments, maybe we can agree that some of the lost will need more than salvation to become aware that God can heal and cleanse even the innocent and sub-conscience consequences of the sins of our loved ones.
        To God be all the glory.

    • Hi, this is broken by just going to church, being their around God’s people is so important. Though it is true that the church is not the temple, that it’s the people of God – serving God together and worshiping together – encouraging one another to obey God together, that is what a church is. As you do this, you are praying for God to deliver you and your bloodline from certain things like witchcraft and generational curses. As time passes in your walk with God you will begin to see bits and pieces and chunks of your past fall off and out of your life for good! You will begin to feel burdens lifted off, past memories that haunted you will be just blurs and you will smile genuinely like never before, you will have unstoppable joy in your heart and you will praise God merrily no matter what happens in life. You will still have problems because we live in this flawed earth that is so wicked but always remember Ephesians 6:12 “We don’t wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities and evil spirits” these spirits are in the air seeking whom they may enter and use for the devil’s evil purposes. Sometimes the devil uses even our own families to finish us off, and sometimes we allow for certain thoughts to enter our heads and the devil uses us against our family or our brethren. But you know how you slap the devil’s lips and shut him up? (And I’m saying this from experience) – You shake him off of you in Jesus’ name and you call upon Jesus to help you and you keep fighting! God has big plans for you, and the devil knows this – that’s why he’s fighting you so hard – Always remember Jeremiah 29:11 “For I have big plans for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a good future and to prosper you.” God’s plans for us is a million times better than the whack plans we have for ourselves, wait on the Lord and you fight out your own salvation everyday! Winners never quit and quitters never win! Finally I will say: Go and speak to your pastor, that always helps. I want to hear your good reports soon!

  19. I thank the lord our God this day, for he directed me to this website. I was having a kind of retrospect of my life and was asking God to reveal to me what exact curse was upon my life as i wasn’t satisfied the way my life was turning out and at my age. Now I know now that its the holy spirit that brought me here. I have just completed the six steps above and I am so happy how light and peaceful I feel right now. I give God all the glory today for my deliverance and it shall remain permanent in Jesus Name Amen . Thank you Jesus

  20. A step brother of mine told me that am going to die and that i will suffer more than him.This happened because of his wicked actions towards me that caused me to look for a way out of his house.Can those of his words affect me?…though a messanger of God has prayed for me against it

    • Dear brother Emmanuel,
      Praise be to name of our Lord Jesus.
      Normally the main key is in your hand to fix this.
      Satan has right on you only if you have open a door for him. In this case if you sinned against your brother in any way (words, acts, property you own illegally…) you have to confess find a way to fix it. This must be done with a spiritually mature person who can help you with prayers to find a way to fix it. The good time for the action, so that you don’t create more confusion instead of peace.
      Look at this scripter of proverb 26.2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.
      You understand that curse must have something to lay on it to work. If you are responsable of the conflict then you have to work on it to solve the issue in God way. If you are victim in the issue then your prayer has completed, you don’t need to worry about those words they don’t have effects on you.
      I hope I contribute to your understanding.
      God bless you.

  21. I need to know how to pray for my half sister. I am a Christian, have been on the mission field much and know a bit of spiritual warfare but have never been part of any type of deliverance. My sister became a born again spirit filled Christian but apparantly had been drinking around the age of 12 ( after I left home) and then in bits and pieces when she was a Christian and now.. many things are coming into the open, plus she has about as much stress as a person could bear with being in need of much inner healing and horrible things going on in her own family– the types of things you only see on tv. She is now a full blown alcoholic despite rehab 3 times. I have been praying for a year now and during a recent visit when I was speaking to her about going to a healing room for the 3rd time , and I said I believed she would be not only healed but delivered from alcoholism, a demon manifested. With screaming, rolling on the floor, snarling, growling, and eventually vilolence. I did all I knew to do but was admittedly terrified, though I should not have been, and could not get her to break agreement or say she wanted it to go. When things calmed down she remembered nothing but knew something was wrong and was terrified it would hurt if she was delivered. At the time of all the craziness I just kept calling her back and asking if she wanted it to go, but when the thing was threatened it got more violent. Even when things calmed down, when we got close to talking about it there was snarling and personality switches. The entire family is now sweeping it under the rug and saying it was just the alcoholism. I know for sure there is a generational alcoholism spirit here, among other possible things, and I think that might have been what was threatened and acting up. I don’t know how to pray now that the family is acting like it did not happen or can not happen to a Christian and I live about 12 hours away. When we come close to getting somewhere on the phone she hangs up. I’m Terrified of what will happen now that she knows of this ( even if only having heard of what she did from those of us who were there) and if she allows it to stay! Ps. Thank you so much for the very needed guidance and prayers for protection during this time!!!

  22. Can you include or send a prayer for breaking soul ties? Esp. Between you and an abusive parent? And here you talk about blood relationships but wouldn’t the relationship w say another guardian or relative by marriage who raised you, be similar In Regards to breaking soul ties?

  23. Thank you so much for this very amazing&extremely helpful article!! I wish it had been available 45years ago.. With my Heavenly Father’s help, I will prepare myself for battle&deliverence, in order to help my daughter battle so she may receive her deliverence and freedom also—In the powerful Name of Jesus Christ’, I claim this done Amen!!!

  24. My dad and his sister behave the same. They don’t understand anything sometimes they do crazy things . Their parents were so traditional they use to offer sacrifices which were not godly. Can they be delivered now that they are alive ? And how?

  25. How will I know my parents sin ,how will I find out the type of calling God wants me to do ? How will I know the man God wants me to marry if I am not just take the one I love and he is in my life, some people you may love them but they left you

  26. I’m battling a lot of evil spirits and need serious help. I’m tired! I am battling the evil, jealous, cheating, lying, sneaky spirits of my father. On the other hand the wanting to be loved and attention spirit of my mom. My blood father has cheated, lied, manipulated, act of evil heart towards my mom and myself since I was old enough to know my name. He became saved, still the same but undercover. He nick picks to get issues started to make my mom speak out and seem like the bad person. But however it’s cominv from him.
    I kicked my son out years ago for disrespect after raising him of 18 years. During raising him my mom would get in the middle of my checktysing him. She would tell him things such as my husband is not his real father he shouldn’t touch him or say anything to him. I’m wrong fir not saying anything to my husband and so forth. However this has built up with hatred from my son. Now my son lives with them. My son is experiencing what I was raised with. My father cheating on mom, not wanting him to associate with certain people because he don’t want my son to know his street actions to come back and tell my mom, he goes to other family members talks about my son and me and my mom as if we’re strangers on the streets, he speaks to mom like she’s nobody full of anger, and he feeds her negativity of the sons wrong doing to keep frustration in the house. It’s only so much a person could take. My son has lost total respect which I never condoned as trying to get my life right before God. He curses them, raised up at them and wants to fight. Each time they would call me I wouldn’t get involved because I felt that they created that monster. July 22, 2018; my son called me after I had gotten off of work to tell me they’ve called the police on him again. This has been going on since 2years ago. However enough is enough. He’s alienated her, he’s turned the entire family away from her, everyone who’s ever cared has walked away because of him. She has turned into this liar to please him. I’m not happy with my actions; I went to get my son and make him come to my house because the police said he had to go. I didn’t want him to go to jail. Once I got there I exploded with anger of remembering how similar they did me and why I moved Out at a early age. I’m not happy of cursing my parent or allowing Satan to use me. I exploded out of anger and mad about how he’s continuing still today to sit in front of family members and talk of my personal business and brag about calling the police on my son and how stupid my mom is. However he doesn’t know family members call and tell the story and one of them is his outside daughter. I do want help and forgiveness as I would not let this turn me back into Satan’s chamber.

    • You are trying to fight your own fight for your family members – everyone involved. In this process, you could loose the battle for them and indeed for yourself.
      God fights the battle for His children – Psalm 127. I suggest that you focus on yourself first and your relationship with God first. Give yourself wholly to God. Confess all your sins and faults to Him alone first. Ask God to help you to repent (turn away from all that is offensive to Him). Surrender your life to Him then ask Him to take complete control of all your thoughts, words and actions. Read and obey His words as it is in the Bible (not just as taught by preachers). Then the declarations of Psalm 37 and 91 will be applied by God to you personally. Your battle will then become God’s battle. He will protect you and fight for you. You will then be able to effectively intercede on behalf of your family members and God, who has never lost a battle, will be entreated of you for them.

  27. i have a feeling that the demonic spirits are constantly waging war against me they come in form of monitoring birds and follow me every where and i can physically feel evil activities going on every time the evil birds resume by 6 am but the demonic presence are always presents i have prayed and under gone fastin and prayer deliverance but it gets worse daily. I am 34 years old and unmarried all my siblings are also unmarried and childless sometimes i feel like commiting suicide but i dont have courage to do that. I seriously need your prayers and counselling for solution.

    • Mope,

      In Luke 1vs 37 it says with God nothing shall be impossible. The first thing you should do is to give your life to Christ,then give yourself to prayers using words from the Bible as a command. Bet me,you will experience change and that thing that looks impossible will because easy. May the Lord give you strength.


    • Feed the birds with bread you blessed in Jesus name, and do the Kabbalistic cross and the angels banishing ritual of the pentagram it has nothing to do with black magic, the contrary clean your person & your environment from what you do not want, I got rid of it, believe me not only my life but my family things were so bad I began to think it was a family curse, and it was!

    • Trust in God with all your heart, and pray every day. God will set you free, go lift you up. God is a good Father,and we never ve disappointed when we put our trust on him. By prayers we overcome everything, prayers are our sword against our enemy, against all evil forces. The Lord our Father is more powerful than anyone anything and he loves us tremendous.

  28. How do I get to know the sins of my parents, so I can confess them.

  29. Question; I have a parent who continuously threaten to curse me and my kids when I don’t and will not do what he wants and demands me to provide. Because of that I have made choices which have affected my marriage and my life just so that he is happy. He threatens to curse me so that I may loss my job or my marriage will fail and these are things I don’t want. What do I do?
    Should I just ignore him and continue to hope and pray that his curse will not work or should I continue to obey him and provide what he wants.
    If he curses me will it work in my life?
    He is a good father but very stubborn.

    • I do feel you. My father is a good father, but he is close-minded sometimes He even named and cusses me when he gets angry which I see was not really good. Now, I am having my baby. I am pregnant and he cursed me that I would have a problem when I give birth and I will have a problem with my partner. My mother got angry at me because of that and it felt like they wanted me to give up my partner because they keep on saying that he is useless even though he is trying his best to do his part. I do feel you. I am also confused on what to decide and how. I don’t want to make a decision that I would regret and I just want to be a better person, but my parents don’t see that.

    • A relative when through similar stuff. Even after divorce she is still dealing with it. Is tuff so don’t feel alone. Christ knows all of us. He cares about everyone.

  30. Hi, my name is Ian H. And I have a question for the author and or any others who may know how I should proceed forward from here. I actually asked a Christian prayer group to gather around me and pray for the demons to leave my body. The prayer group did just that and several of the members of the group said that they had witnessed a ball of light leave my body. To this day I have yet to be affected by any demons. So I’m sure that they have left me. However, I think it would been better if I had been able to remove the demons myself. So, I am intrigued by your prayer advice and I am fully willing to confess my families sins as well as mine, but I really dont have to since the prayer group members banished the demons already. Or do I have to still do this prayer you’re suggesting? I want to make sure that Ive gotten rid of all the demons which may be present. Please respond with some advice. Thank you for your time and consideration

    • Hi Ian,

      I don’t think that there was anything wrong with having the group pray for you. The fact that someone had seen a ball of light leave your body, and that you are no longer affected by them, I don’t think there is any more to be done.

      It was a safe method to have others do it. We can actually do more harm, sometimes, by attempting to do it ourselves. This is a complex part of the journey of faith and we should never be afraid to ask others for assistance. Christianity was never meant to be done alone, but in authentic relationship with other believers, without judgment or condemnation.

  31. How do i know my parents sins to confess them?they are no in an abusive relationship where my boyfriend cheats and emotionally makes me feel unmarried so are my older ones.they get men in their lifes have children and or ends there.thé same thing is happening to me.What should i do

    • I am so sorry for the situation you find yourself in. But deep within me I know God is so understanding and compassionate, that if you follow these steps IN FAITH surrendering in this way maybe;

      “I surrender father the sins my parents and grandparents committed against you God Almighty, the sins I am not aware of! I have faith that you the compassionate and understanding God will search your child and make me new again”

      Maybe approach a pastor or someone in church? Maybe yourself and your siblings could do this together?

      I pray for deliverance over your situation and that of your siblings. Chains are breaking in the matchless name of Jesus. He did not die that we may suffer but that we may be free from bondage and victorious over sins. You and your siblings are free from bondage and any entity that wishes to break you in the name of Jesus!

    • I am up for correction if I am wrong.
      What I know is that you look at you family tree up to atleast 4th generation, in both mother and fathers side, look at the similar attributes or things amongst the living that may be affecting your family, interview someone who might know your parents background and check if this attributes are similar and start you process of praying against them.

  32. how can I pray in proxy for my husband who doesn’t know he has any generational curses or familiar spirits, pray for him to be set free from every generational curse in his family line that are negatively affecting me and our kids?

    • Unfortunately, in all of the training I have done on spiritual freedom, you cannot pray in proxy for your husband. This is something that he has to be willing to do. I am sorry that I don’t have better news, and that your family is suffering.

      One thing that you could be praying for is revelation for him to recognize something isn’t right and ask the question about what to do.

    • In faith pray for your husband darling, the bible is filled with stories people standing in the gap for loved ones and receiving amazing miracles like the story of the soldier asking Jesus to heal his servant and saying am not worthy to have you in my home, and Jesus healed his servant- Mathew 8, the friends that opened the roof n let down their friend into a crowded room Jesus was in …and the bible says when Jesus saw their faith he healed him luke 5:17-39, rahab saving her family and all that was in her house from the destruction in the hands of the isrealite Joshua 6:25 , 1 Cor 7:16 tells us salvation for a husband or wife can come through a spouse…God responds to faith ….feel free please to pray and claim deliverance for your husband in Jesus Name

  33. I find trying to understand This article extremely upsetting I do not see where it clearly breaks down the prayer to get rid of the evil spirits from generational curse it says in the prayer below but then there’s no pressure below I have suffered my whole life with generational curses I meant to leave shortly depressed and worn down from it and I need clear cut explanation ABC broken down how to get rid of it

    • Hi Teresa,
      I am so sorry that you have suffered so long. It appears that this post is part 2 of a 4 part series. I did a quick look and think I have found what you are looking for in Part 4 “The Battle Prayer To Break A Generational Curse Line.”

      I hope this helps and that you find what you are looking for. I would suggest that this isn’t something you should tackle on your own. You might want to have a mentor or someone further along in their faith, who understands these things, to be with you when you do it.

    • You can break out the cursed by fasting and praying (Matthew 17:14-21. Put more emphasis on verse 21) and also by waking up at mid night to sing and pray to God (Acts 16:25-26). Jeremiah 33:3, says call on to me and I will answer you and show you great and unsearchable things you do not know. Also make sure u quote God by his word when ever you pray, hold Him(God) by his word and I tell u he will speedingly answer you. For he said in Luke 18:1 that we should pray continually and when you continue down till verse 8, u will discover what I am telling U.

  34. my great grand father, due to the history i heard from my father,he is a wicked man.he has done a lot of evil work.but my grand father was a good christian but was placed in a bondage of sickness by my great grand father till his death.but my father was a christian who believe in jesus and prayer.likewisely my mother a devoted woman who never get tired of going to church even vigil.she make a statement that she is not wealthy but all her children will be wealthy.i was born into a christian home and i started praying at my early mother inspired me into that attitude,telling me that there is a generational problem in our family,that we need to pray in order to conqeur it.

  35. What if i don’t know what my parents did and they are not willing to share it with me or perhaps they have no idea of what is happening into their life,they assume its part of fate.

    • Lord Jesus will reveal this to us if we ask him diligently though his holy spirit. This happens AFTER we are born again i.e. we accept Jesus as Lord and savior and receive the holy spirit from GOD

  36. my name is shirley my mother never ever hurted me. My mother loved me more than she love her self all her children. But she alway said that someone put a curse on the family she said until the day she died. I ask her who did she said she didn’t no she alway told me a black shadow of a man use to stand in her door at night. she wanted me or one of my children to sleep in her bed every night. I didn’t unstand until she died then I start seen things but I’am not scared of it every night at 2:00 a.m I awake I can feel it hear one night something growl at me in the hallway like a dog.

    • Pray and plead the blood of Jesus upon yourself, your children, ask them also to plead the blood of Jesus upon themselves, cover them by the blood of Jesus, upon the house

    • You can find on line the banishing ritual of the pentagram with the Kabbalist cross, repeat every week, it’s a powerful tool to get rid of bad spirits and enemies. During the banishing ritual say you reject and do not want this negative energy, you want all negativity and unclean spirits to go back to its source, vibrate the sacred names of god, and finish of with the 23 salm from the bible. Go to bed with the bible open, remember they can’t touch you if you give the permission, you can tell them loud to go away in the name of Jesus the lord!

  37. The women in my family have always had ” bad luck” I know we have a curse and it was placed back 3 generations. I am praying for the break of this. I’ve lost a son to cancer very rare type he was 3 months old. Lost a husband, my dad my mom the list goes on. I don’t want this to continue. Thank you for the guidance. Lord help me get rid of this.

    • God is able to do exceedingly far beyond what you can comprehend. Please ask for the indwelling and anointing of the Holy Spirit. Never exercise any form of doubt regarding your deliverance from the shackles of the enemy in the name of Jesus.

  38. My mother was very negative, and physically abusive towards me and my siblings, but towards me more than any other sibling. I have gotten counseling, but somethings were too embarrassing to even mention to a counselor. For years I wondered if she was my real mother. I have come to the conclusion that her acts were just merely evil from within herself. It had nothing to do with me or who I am. My dad passed a couple years ago, and visiting her has stopped. Not that I have bad feelings towards her, but because I feel there is nothing else connecting us together anymore as a family after dad passed. In my life the generational curse was on finances and love in my life. I have forgiven her, but moved on with my life. I respect her as a mother, but never had a mother/daughter relationship with her. I have already gone through the steps above for years, but had never cut ties completely. I am now asking that God remove those curses from me and pleading the blood of Jesus over my life. I have demanded those demons leave my life completely! Thank you for this great topic and answers.

  39. This is an eye spiritual opener to know how to deal with our issues and problems of life associated to curses thanks foe enlightenment.

    • Jesus taught us to pray the Lord’s Prayer. Part of this pray is asking Him to deliver us. A few years ago He told me to pray this prayer daily so I did. Then after a series of circumstances of being in spiritual warfare He said to me because you obeyed when I told you to pray daily I will now deliver you from your past. He said there is an opening there allowing demons in and today I will close that for you. He then delivered me and I was permanently set free. I’m sure He wants to deliver us all. He said we don’t have because we don’t ask. Ask Him thru the Lord’s Prayer.

      • Great, very eye opening and insightful. I would also pray this prayer everyday and make it a routine anytime I go on my knees. I believe the Lord, through this would deliver me from any generational curse. AMEN!

  40. My name is Geoffrey, i have been strangling with breaking demonic curses for 5 years now but i thanks God for helping to break them by following the steps provided above. my God bless is people and continue giving the knowledge on how to break ant trap that the devil use to torment God people

  41. My mother told me that my grandmother from my dad’s side cursed me. She believed that if I become successful, then I’ll help my dad so she wanted to stop that from happening. She was angry at my father for something he did and had a goat slaughtered. When she came to stay with us, she planted something in a tree in my family’s compound. Ever since then my life has been one miserable experience after the next. I have two daughters from two extremely draining and miserable relationships. I have tried hunting for a stable job for years and I’m always getting rejected. Today, I made it to the last stage of a job interview only to lose it by a whisker to two other job applicants. I’m heartbroken and I feel like giving up. I have tried praying the Lord’s prayer, praying to God but nothing seems to change. I’m worried that my kids will not have any future. Please help me.

    • Hi there Hildah,

      I’m so sorry that you are going through so much. After reading your heartfelt comment, I can tell there has been evil blocking you from prosperity, as well as your kids you fear will suffer. First, start by asking our Heavenly Father for forgiveness of the sins that your grandmother committed. If you have a white candle inside of a glass, sit it on a table, light it, and get your family to stand around it in a circle and pray asking our Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ to break the evil curses that have tormented you and your family. Most people fail to realize it, that we all have been cursed through evil ancestry in some way or another. I was very young when I conceived my first two boys, and come to find out, the sperm donor to my sons, his evil mother was doing witchcraft and she had cursed her entire family. She even tried to kill me because she knew her own dirty son was wrong, eventually, I got away from those dangerous people. Then I gave birth to a daughter, come to find out the guy that I was dating, his dad believed in witchcraft and he was a (G) Mason. My daughter is cursed and she turned against me for no reason at all. I have to pray and leave it all up to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. That’s why all women should be careful of who they conceive their babies through. For an example: If a young girl is dating a guy and if his parents are devil worshippers, or have sold their souls to the devil; then the guy as well as his entire family is already cursed and the evil curses will rub off on the girlfriend as well, that relationship will not last. I can’t say too much, but I think you get the idea. All three of my children are cursed badly, and they are very evil. Sadly, I had to cut tides with my children for a little while, because I tried to explain the truth to them, but their mind is so messed up and they are children belonging to Satan. No children that love their mother would never turn against her for no apparent reason, and that’s how I know witchcraft is heavily involved. And no one has to believe in witchcraft in order for a curse to be put on them, that’s nothing but a lie. People can put anything inside of your food, they can use your hair, photos, and your clothing you have worn. It’s not a good idea at all for folks to post their photo online, they don’t know who their enemies are. My life was first cursed because of my dad, he was a evil man that worshipped the devil doing witchcraft, and the curse fell back on me as I got older. And my late mother, her own dad was a (G) Mason, and that’s how I ended up getting involved with people of the devil, Satan already had those evil folks set to mess up my life because of evil ancestors.
      Our Father in Heaven is the only one that can break evil curses, and it may take a while but he and his Son Jesus Christ is always on time. I hope that my comment will bring you closer to our Heavenly Father. Not last but least, make for sure that your own heart is right with our Father in Heaven, and ask for forgiveness of any sins that you can think of and have committed. And remember, Satan is no friend to no one and is all about breaking peace, causing poverty, struggling, and so forth. I will pray for you to get a job, Amen! Claim it in the name of Jesus!!! I keep you in my prayers.

    • Hi Hildah
      I just want to let you know that you do not need to light any candles or stand in any circles to pray, like what amy said….All you have to do is carefully follow the steps in this article so please read it again carefully…..thanks

    • Don’t give up which we all feel like doing at times. I’ve got plenty of stress with my older sister taking her life in early September, my 87 year old mom is very sick, and other stuff. Anyways, try to picture in your mind some things that make you feel happy. Many years ago I was a 21 year old LDS missionary in Northern California. I was home sick and not very healthy, but there in Yreka, California I started helping others and laughing, and being a little crazy which took my mind off all my problems. Do some hobbies or things that make you feel good. My prayers are with you.

  42. Hi! My father was possessed for years since he was 16 before he married by multi demons. I heard several paranormal incidents happened to him because the house my grandfather bought was haunted and also my grandmother was cursed by one of our keen as he practiced witchcraft. Today my father is okay after several Buddhist matras they say. But the curse still haunts us I believe. Since then our family has broken in pieces. We don’t have financial stability. My grandfather lost half his assets treating my dad and other half by one of his friends’ fraud. I believe nothing is going right with my entire family ever since I acknowledge. I am desperately looking for this curse to break but all I need is help.

    • my dear humble your self read and follow the steps outline above.
      The bible says I will visit to the third and 4th generation the children of those who hate me!
      We have the finished work on the cross as our legal ground and victory ground to stand and fight from.Jesus said anyone who will not carry his cross daily and follow Him is not worth of Him!

  43. Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.”
    Galatians 3:13

    Verse 13 is written in the past tense, whereas Galatians 3:10 is written in the present tense:

    For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”

    If Jesus broke the curses, how is it those of whom Paul was referencing in the present tense could be under a curse? Verse 13 does say Jesus became the curse, but it doesn’t say He broke any curses. Moreover, I cannot find a single example of Jesus or the apostles breaking any curses, yet we read that Jesus issued many curses?
    If Jesus did not break any curses why would anyone else?

  44. Wow. I see nothing here that makes anyone responsible for their own sins. I never read anywhere Jesus say I forgive your parents. Now your free. This is a formula for the devil to destroy you and your family. It pits you against your family. No one has the power to know any of this but God. This is idolatry their practicing. No different than a medium. I have the power to reveal what your family members did. Says who? The demons have no power over us if we live in union with God. He will be our God and we will be his people. The curse from generation in the Old Testament is for those who hate him.

    • Faustina, check the first step outline above-you have to repent and surrender your life to God les you can never have authority over demons with sin in your life.
      Generational curses comes from iniquities (sins of ancestors). That s why it must be dealt with before the curses can be broken and the demons kick out. They feed on iniquities which give them legal ground to operate.
      In exodus the LORD said to the children of Isreal I will visit to the 3rd and 4th generation the childen of those who hate me.
      The bible says in Chronicle my people die for lack of knowledge!
      Jesus says anyone who will not carry their cross and follow me daily is not worthy of me.
      My dear this site is reach and you can grow in knowledge and understanding in the things of God here.
      Jesus Loves you and may the Holy Spirit reveal Him to you.

      • Chris

        Can you elaborate on your claim:

        “Generational curses comes from iniquities (sins of the ancestors)”

        Many make this claim but do not provide Scriptural arguments as support. Since neither of us want anyone to die from a lack of knowledge, perhaps we might have a civilized debate on the subject. What could it hurt? Are you game?

        For instance, you quoted Exodus 20:5 and insinuated this verse states that generational curses come from the sins of the ancestors. I disagree. We could start there.

        We could have the debate on your website, mine or both. I am willing to create a blog specific to our debate, and you could do the same simultaneously. We could agree to only allow comments from each other until if and when we mutually agree to allow comments from others. This could be very interesting.

        Before we begin, we can agree on a set of rules–whatever they be. I am thinking as I am writing here but maybe one rule would be, We agree not to bring up additional subjects except by mutual agreement. Or, We agree not to engage in ad hominin argumentation.

        We have the opportunity to set a Godly example of how two brothers can have a civil, loving online debate while trying to understand the truth of Scripture on this subject.

        Let’s face it, the preponderance of literature is on your side. There are dozens and dozens of books, if not hundreds, that support your position. Besides the book I have written that opposes your teaching, I think I have seen another half a dozen if that many.

        Out of courtesy, I will gift you a copy of my book before you decide as to whether you wish to have such a debate. This will enable you to make that decision from a position of knowledge and will empower you to understand in advance how to counter my arguments—should you choose to do so.

    • But when Christ was being nailed on the Cross. He had to say father forgive “them” for they do not know what they are doing….would there be need for him to ask for someone else’s forgiveness?

      I think it depends on the context with which you approach forgiveness. But in Forgiveness there is love not hate of rising against your parents….it’s praying for them. Just like disciples went around praying for “people” who were even far from family.

    • In simple terms, the enemy uses legal rights he is given. Demons will not put someone in bandage without a legal right. The purpose of those steps outlined is to break the legal rights the enemy maybe using. Yes if any man is in Christ he is a new creation, but remember this wont happen automatically we need to claim what belongs to us and thats why Jesus gave us power and authority over the enemy in Luke 10:19
