6 Best Prayers for Generational Curses

Throughout Christianity, sin tends to be blamed all the time on some sort of generational curse, and while this is not always the case, sometimes the children are punished for the sins of their fathers. Here are the 6 best prayers for generational curses.

Prayer for Freedom from the Curse of Abuse
My Jesus, please help this family! It seems as though sin’s curse has left a trail of abuse from one generation to the next. All I know to do in this situation is to pray for Your intercession. I ask You to change the attitudes of those who act abusively. Change their minds so that they may act gently instead of harshly. May Your grace be poured out so that this curse of abuse may be broken. Amen.

Prayer for Freedom from the Curse of Alcoholism
Dear God, the plague of alcohol has left a mark on this family for years. I cannot begin to list the pains that drunkenness has brought into our home, nor the pains that have been created during the many ordeals. Please, act swiftly to end this curse. May the love of sin be replaced with the love of Christ, and may our generations be restored to wholeness, even after the damage that has occurred. I ask in Jesus’s name. Amen.

Prayer for Freedom from the Curse of Divorce
Messiah, You know what it feels like to be rejected by Your people. The horrible pains of rejection have also ravaged this family. The results have been broken promises, shattered dreams, and awful heartache. Jesus, by Your mercy, I ask that You end this curse. Let our future be one of faithfulness and restoration. Let our hearts be replenished with joy; may we turn to You in faith and be comforted by Your gospel of forgiveness. Please hear my cry. Amen.

Prayer for Freedom from the Curse of Drug Addiction
Deliverer, my Lord, the pains of drug addiction are too much to bear. I pray that You would act quickly to free this family of its constant struggle. It seems like a curse to endure the troubles of drugs for so many years. Please, God, break this curse and grant salvation throughout this family. Let the allure of sinful intoxication be broken and let this family overflow with love for You. I pray that You would act in a powerful way to save us. Amen.

Prayer for Freedom from the Curse of Sexual Immorality
God of Faithfulness, I call to You for help. Our family suffers because of years of sexual immorality. This pattern has caused so much hurt and destruction that it feels like a curse. Please act in mercy to help us. May this family repent of sinful ways and seek out Your risen Son Jesus for forgiveness. Please forgive our sins and grant us with hearts of faithfulness and sacrificial love. Let Your transforming power be on display in our generations.

Prayer for Freedom from the Curse of Sin
Lamb of God, descended from on high to become a sacrifice for lost sinners. You literally became accursed to grant us salvation; You bore the sins of all those who would ever believe. It is by Your amazing grace that I pray that You would save this family. Send Your Holy Spirit to grant us hearts of faith and repentance. Let Your gospel be applied to us and may the curse of our sin be removed by Your precious blood. I pray that You would be glorified by granting us freedom from sin and death. Hallelujah! In Jesus’s name. Amen.
