The Testimony On Breaking a Generational Curse

Last updated on:

The Battle Prayer I will give you below was the exact one I had given to a young 16 year Christian girl several years ago. This girl had contacted us with a very interesting story that ended up putting all 6 of the above steps in actual operation.

This young girl was truly wise beyond her years. She had been saved when she was younger and she had developed a very close, intimate, and powerful walk with her Lord and Savior. She knew all about spiritual warfare, how to plead the Blood of Jesus and how to verbally engage with demons to drive them off her. She said she was not into the normal things that most teenage girls were into at their young ages such as clothes, the latest fads, partying, etc.

She also considered herself to be an amateur Bible scholar, as she had read much of the Bible and was trying to do the best she could to try and understand it all. She belonged to a good Pentecostal church in her area and was very active in some of the activities of her church.

When she first contacted us, she said everything was going great as far as her walk in the Lord was concerned.

However, she had one problem that she could not get any victory over and she could not understand why God was allowing this to happen to her.

The problem she was having was that demonic spirits were attacking her on a periodic basis – and sometimes the attacks were very heavy.

Many of their attacks were coming in at night. Several months ago the attacks got so bad that she could not even speak out to try and command them to leave her in the name of Jesus. Her vocal cords were getting shut down when the demons were moving in for their attacks.

She also said that her mother and boyfriend had several attacks come in on them, but they were not as frequent or as intense as the attacks that she had coming in on her.

When she first conveyed her story to me, she ask that I please not think she was crazy or that she was imagining all of this. Her mental state seemed to be very solid and I did not detect that she was fabricating or making any of this up. I had a very good witness from the Holy Spirit that her story was true and that she was really under direct attack from these demons.

She also knew all about legal rights and that demons could not be coming in for these kinds of attacks unless they had some kind of legal right to be able to do so. S

he said she had no holes in her hedges that she was aware of. She said she was not guilty of committing any type of door opening sin or transgression against the Lord that would be giving these demons the legal right to be coming after her like they were doing.

She was thus at a complete loss as to why this was continuing to happen to her. She also could not understand why God was allowing this to happen to her since she felt that she had done nothing wrong against God herself to be drawing this kind of heavy demonic activity into her life.

These demonic attacks started coming against her with much more frequency and intensity when she turned 12.

She said she had some of these attacks come in before she had actually turned 12 – but that the attacks really ramped up after she had turned 12. She had thus been under these heavier attacks from these demons for the last 4 years.

Since there did not appear to be anything in this girl’s current situation that was giving these demons the legal right to be able to be coming after her like this – I started to question her about her background, especially the background of her natural parents.

Long story short, her natural mother and father had divorced when she was about 11 or 12. Her father moved away out of state and had re-married into another family. She said her mom and her mom’s current boyfriend were Christians. She said her dad claimed to be a Christian, but his actions spoke otherwise.

When I questioned her further on her dad’s background, it did not take too long to discover that the demons were probably originating and coming off the dad, and then they were trying to jump and transfer over to her so they could continue to follow her into her adult life.

The distinct impression I was getting as she was describing the actual attacks from these demons was that the demons were trying to work their claws into her to try and form out a curse line so they could then stay attached to her and continue to follow, harass, and torment her into her adult life.

The demons had not been able to get in on the inside of her. All of these attacks were coming at her from the outside position, from the outside of her body.

God, through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit operating on the inside of her, had been protecting her, and He was not allowing the demons to be able to gain entry to the inside of her body or soul.

Now here is what she told me about her father that ended up solving this case. When she was only 1 year old, her dad had literally tried to strangle her.

She said no one knew why he had tried to do something so horrible. She said he was also directly responsible for literally splitting up an entire church due to all of the dissension and strife that he had caused.

Another time when her and her mom were tying to listen to worship and praise music, he came storming into the room with a shotgun in his hands telling them to turn it off. I won’t go into all of the other dysfunctional things he had done – but there was no question in my mind from some of the things she had told me that there was a very good chance that he had demons on him.

I then asked her if she knew anything about her dad’s father. She said her dad was adopted – but they later found out that his natural father was an abortionist. He was a medical doctor and had been personally responsible for the killing of 1000’s of unborn children. After I received this information, it did not take too much to be able to put two and two together as to what was going on behind the scenes in the spiritual realm.

With her natural father’s dad actually having worked in the abortion industry itself – there is no question that he could have easily drawn demonic spirits into his life as a result of committing these kinds of extreme transgressions and abominations against the Lord.

This kind of evil, heinous activity can easily draw demon spirits of murder and hate, and they will waste no time in attaching to him, and then try to jump and transfer down onto some of his own children – knowing full well that they will be able to go down to at least 3 or 4 generations of future children as a result of this kind of an extreme transgression and sin against the Lord.

The fact that her own natural dad tried to literally strangle her for no apparent reason at all when she was only 1 year old all showed me that he probably had the same type of murderous demons on him that his father had on him. I knew then that I might be dealing with a real live curse line, with demons literally trying to jump and transfer down the blood line of these two men’s natural families.

I then explained all of this to the girl and that I could then draw her up a special type of battle prayer to handle this type of situation. She was so worn out from battling these demons for as long as she had, that she was willing to try anything that might work and get her delivered from their evil grip.

As you will see in how I drew up the battle prayer below, I had her first confess out the sins of both her natural father and her grandfather who was the abortionist. I then had her tell God that she will fully forgive her father for any abusive acts that he may have committed against her, especially when he tried to strangle her when she was only 1 year old.

I then had her break any ungodly soul ties that may have formed out between her and her father that the demons may have been feeding and operating on since she was born into this family.

After all of that was done, I then had her fully break the curse line that the demons were trying to form out between her and her natural father.

Once the curse line was fully broken operating under the authority and anointing of God the Father to be able to do so – then she was ready to face the demons head on, expose them with what they were trying to get away with, and then command them to now leave her, her family, and their house in the name of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I told her to say this prayer 3-4 times over the next several days. But as it actually turned out, she only had to say the battle prayer one time.

She said when she first started to say the battle prayer out loud, she was speaking everything out in a normal tone of voice.

But by the time she got to the end of it when she was verbally engaging with the demons, she felt the Holy Spirit raise up the tone and intensity of her voice.

As soon as the battle prayer was completed, she felt the demons lift off her and she then said she felt an incredible sense of “freedom” and “happiness” manifest in her spirit.

She said it had been a long time since she had felt that kind of freedom and happiness in her heart and spirit.

The demons had literally been attacking and tormenting her every night as she was getting ready to try and go to sleep. When she went to bed that night after doing the battle prayer, she said she got her first good night’s sleep in a long time.

From that point on, the demons have not been back and she has been able to sleep at night without any further problems. There have also been no further attacks on her during the day or on any of the other family members.

The beautiful part about this story is that this little 16 year old girl was able to literally drive these demons off her and right out of their house for good once she was willing to take up her sword, which is the Word of God, and verbally engage with the demons, commanding them to now leave her in the name of Jesus Christ once she had properly broken all of their legal rights earlier on in the first part of this battle prayer.

I know many Christians are scared to death of demons and would have a problem with boldness to really be able to do this if they were ever forced to do it either for themselves or any of their close loved ones.

However, this young girl’s testimony should serve as a major and shining example of what any Christian can do if they are ever forced to face any kind of a demonic attack in this life.

Remember – the Bible tells us that God the Father is no respecter of any persons. What this means is that what God will do for one, He will do for another.

If God the Father can anoint and empower a little 16 year old girl to take out a group of murderous demons with one simple, basic, battle prayer said one time – then God the Father can do the exact same thing for any adult Christian who is willing to step into the arena with enough courage, faith, and boldness to walk and operate in His power and anointing.

Now here is the exact battle prayer that I had given to this young girl to finally drive these demons off her for good.

  1. I am in the similar situation. I am living under a curse. I have never succeeded in anything that i plan to do. My own father underwent the some kind of life. In big part of his entire life he was full of depression since nothing he could out of his salary even if he make wonderful plan. My life is following the trend. please help in prayers.

    • I will pray and commit you unto the lord because I believe I have been passing through the same. Let us keep other in prayer.

  2. hiya, thank you for such an inspired site , i have spent much time on here which has certainly opened my eyes, however i feel i really need to comment about generational curses as the holy spirit taught me a very valuable lesson in generational curses …. it says in Exodus 34:7, “Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting (punishing) the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.” so as we can see There are many people today who are living under bondage that the sins of their forefathers has brought them under… and this is what the holy spirit taught me ….. from the time of salvation the curse is broken instantly by the shed blood of jesus “BUT” the demons that are associated with that curse dont automatically pack their bags and leave , they need to be CAST out !!! If you dont seek deliverance from the time of salvation then the demons will have a field day , they will keep stepping it up and become an even bigger problem ….
    There’s a neat story in Mark 9:17-27, where Jesus deals with what is almost certainly a generational curse (verse 21). Notice that Jesus didn’t have the boy confess the sins or iniquities of his ancestors, He cast out the demons that entered in through the curse. That’s how I believe we are to deal with the affects of a generational curse; since the curse has been broken, all there is left to do is just cast the demons out that entered into that person’s life back before they became a Christian (before the curse was broken). blessings to all … your sister in christ 🙂 xx

    • This was soo good! Thanks for the info!

    • Thank you Connie for posting this. My bible fell to this page yesterday as I have been praying over breaking generational curses.. Thanks to your post, now I understand it.

  4. Thank you for sharing that testimony with us.
    Generational curse is real and sometimes we ted to ignore it. I also believe am going through a curse since I feel my life is stranded and every time I make a plan it doesn’t work and through. My relationships don’t work I always get hurt and disappointed at the end. There has been a story of singleness in our family and disappointments. Help me in prayers I want to break these curses.

    • Praise God, Am also going through the same with my family and i believe it is a generation curse. Non of my sisters are married, every thing we do fails. If we go into any relation with any man he also starts to experince failure in every thing they do. Please pray for me and what can we do to break it. We have fasted and prayed but the suituation gets worse.

  5. How can demons have “legal rights” if they were defeated at the cross and Jesus totally despoiled them, stripping them of all power and authority? Scripture says that all power and authority is given to Him. A legal right is an enforcible authority. For instance, if I am appointed a forest ranger, and you light an illegal fire in the park during the dry season, I have the authority to put out your fire and escort you out of the park by virtue of your offense. Does an offense or sin by someone else really give satan a legal right over a child of God? That’s what this typical deliverance teaching would seem to say, that if a christian sins it gives satan legal rights over him. Please elaborate on this, I would be interested in hearing the biblical underpinnings of this idea. Not trying to be contentious here. I am just not certain this idea is actually supported by scripture.

    Here’s another common teaching , the generational curse alluded to here. The OT/Old covenant verses are always referred to by many deliverance ministries, about God visiting the sins of the fathers on the children. Yet later on we hear God say in Jeremiah : Jeremiah 31:29-34New International Version (NIV)

    29 “In those days people will no longer say,‘The parents have eaten sour grapes,
    and the children’s teeth are set on edge.’30 Instead, everyone will die for their own sin; whoever eats sour grapes—their own teeth will be set on edge.31 “The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant
    with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah.32 It will not be like the covenant I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to[a] them,[b]”declares the Lord. 33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds
    and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
    34 No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,”
    declares the Lord. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”

    God is saying that under the new covenant, it will be different. Believers are not under the old covenant but the new, so how can there be generational curses that require specific prayers for this and that? I can certainly see in famlies patterns of generational iniquities passed down through stuff that remains undealt with because the families are unbelievers and in the dark and therefore under the curse as long as they have not gotten saved. But once one is a believer, how can satan have any legal rights at all? I would be interested in hearing the scriptural argument for this. Thank you.

    • I will try to answer you, but please pardon my randomness:
      1. Whereas salvation is not transferable, sins and the consequences of sins, called iniquities are. The sin of one generation becomes the iniquity of succeeding generations.
      Exodus 34:7.
      ” Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and fourth generation”.
      2. Whatever the parents did, the children are held accountable. Hebrews 7:9,10.
      ” And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abeaham
      ” For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him”.
      3. If (2) above is not correct then there shouldn’t be any basis for the concept of Adamic sin.
      (4). If there is no inherited sin, then salvation wouldn’t be necessary;
      (5). If salvation isn’t necessary, then Christ would have died in vain.
      (6). Every generation must therefore seek its own salvation; first from its own sin, and then from the consequences of the sins (iniquities) of the generations that preceded it.
      (7). This is a personal experience: Saturday April 5, 1996.
      We were casting out a demon of infirmity from a young boy of 17. Prior to this date, every month this boy must be admitted in the hospital with inexplicable medical conditions ranging from hemolytic jaundice to others of unknown etiology. While casting the demons out, the following facts emerged: (a). The demons spoke that they were out to destroy him; (b). They gained entrance when the parents went to a river to make a covenant that they wouldn’t betray each other while the mother was three months pregnant with him; (c). Those demons refused to leave, even after 7 hours of relentless prayer; (d). We were only able to cast the demonsout after the Holy Spirit instructed me to repent on behalf of the boy “for the iniquities of the generations”; (e). After I did it didn’t take more that two minutes of prayer when the demons fled from their habitation. (f). Twenty years have passed, but that boy, now a man have not visited an hospital. The curse was broken and today he is a servant of the Lord.
      8. In conclusion, permit me to say this: Unrepented and unforsaken personal sins is the life-blood of generational curses. It is not enough for Jesus to be your Savior; He has to be your Lord. Only then will you not serve other masters.

      • Thank you, Sir for this clarification! I equally thank one lil sheep for bringing it up. This forum is rich and spiritually educative; God bless all. Amen

  8. Thank you for sharing, to name a few FAMILY’
    Work problems been kind of repeating simmllar problems one problem after another. Please pray for me also i would want to thank you for this eye opener
    God bless you

  9. i need help with family curses, they have ruined my life, now I am old and never get married due to these curses. Please, how can you help me. I have tried many Man of God but it did not work. Tried African jujus but its like hitting on the wall, no effect at all. It has affected my job, relationships, health, mentally disturbed.

  10. Am going through same serious generational curse both from my mother side and father side….my mom is single never met another maN after they had split up with my dad, my mom’s sister fiance died on his way back from the engagement party, and as far me I never had a serious relationship, I distrust guys a lot and funny thing is I was never hurt yet I just don’t trust guys even if his really being honest, I get so determined to do something but Everytime I wanna give it a try I keep failing and failing , am on the verge of giving up on life/ God and everyone coz am really tired of praying for the same thing over and over again/ year after year

    • Don’t give up on God because believe me at the end you will have only yourself to blame. If truly you have been praying for a long time concerning the problem that you are facing then I would advice you to look at it from another perspective. Curses don’t come upon people only from their parents or from someone else, sometimes you can be the cause of the problem/curse that you are experiencing. It may be a result of something you did that displeased God which made God angry with you. It may even be God fighting against you for the sins you committed, not even your enemies. When you study the bible from genesis to the prophets, you will notice that whenever the Israelites faced a problem and whenever they suffered defeat, it was usually a result of their unfaithfulness to a faithful God and God would be the one to always send other nations to punish them or he will strike the land with plague or other things, You will notice that if isreal had remained a faithful nation to God they would have never been defeated by any nation, even if all the nations of the world were to come together and fight against them. It is all about your relationship with God, if that is done, which demon or principality and power can stand against you?

  11. Good day and greetings in Jesus Name,

    I came across your stories and great information. I am currently doing my
    masters dessertation on is curses real and their existence and some of the stories
    you point out is so valuable to my research, may I ask permission to use it in my paper
    giving full rights to you and acknowledgement.

    thanking you
    Pastor Kevin Pillay
