8 Best Prayers for Breaking Generational Curses

Many people are exposed to living with the bondage of sins given to them by their forefathers. This can continue on for generations until repentance is sought. Here is a look at some great prayers for breaking generational curses that will help to put you on a path to heal any generational transgressions.

Redeemed from the Curse Prayer
O Mighty God, it is for freedom that Christ came. I am redeemed from the curse of the law. I stand firm in this verse, and I pray that every generational curse in my lineage has no power over me. I pray that every curse spoken, written, or transferred to me is broken by the blood of Jesus. Poverty, sickness, and family idols are not my portion. I choose to walk in the freedom that Christ bought for me. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Confession Prayer
Righteous Savior, I come humbly before you today to confess the sins that my forefathers and I have committed against you. We have not obeyed your word, and as a result, we have opened up doors for the devil to reinforce generational curses into our family. Lord, forgive us of all of these sins. Let the blood of your Son, Jesus, purify us from every sin that we have committed against you. Holy Spirit, purge every curse that has passed on in our family from generation to generation. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Agreements and Vows Prayer
Lord, Creator of Heaven and Earth, I thank you for sending your only Son to die on the cross for us. Through his sacrifice, we have been set free from any manner of captivity. I pray to you that you break me and my future generations from any agreements, vows, commitments, and contracts that my family and I made knowingly or unknowingly with the forces of darkness. Today, I renounce these agreements, in the name of Jesus. I pray that you set my family free. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Purification Prayer
Jehovah Rapha, my Healer, I want to thank you for dying on the cross for me. It is because of your great sacrifice that my family and I have been set free from generational curses. I break the power of the enemy over my life. I declare and decree that every curse that the enemy and his agents are trying to reinforce in my life is null and void. I paralyze all the works of the enemy over my life. I reject every curse in my family line and choose to walk in the blessings of Abraham.  In the name of Jesus, I believe and pray, Amen.

Authority Prayer
Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the Bible says that I will decree a thing and it shall be established. I cancel and nullify any curses that were spoken over us intentionally or unintentionally, in the name of Jesus. I cancel the effects of those negative words over my family and future generations, in the name of Jesus. I declare and decree that generational curses of sickness, poverty, marital failure, bareness, rage, alcoholism, and lying are null and void. They will never manifest because we are free from them. I command the devil and his demons to leave my family alone. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

New Creation Prayer
Oh God of my Salvation, I thank you for making me a new creation in Christ. I choose to walk in my new found freedom in Christ. I refuse to be chained to generation curses from my parents’ house. I stand firm in my new identity and declare that I am of a different bloodline line, and that is the bloodline of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Devil and your cohorts of demons, you have no power over my mental health, finances, family, and marriage because who the Son has set free is free indeed. I am free. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Breaking the Curse of Sinful Patterns Prayer
Almighty and Everlasting God, I renounce sinful patterns that have been going on in my family from generation to generation. I renounce sexual immorality, alcoholism, bitterness, gossip, and rage in my lineage. I cut myself off and break free from those sinful patterns, in the name of Jesus. I plead the blood of Jesus Christ over myself, and I declare that those sinful patterns will not have any hold over me or any of my children or any of our future generations. We belong to Christ, and therefore, generational sins have no power over us. In the mighty name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.

Breaking the Curse of Premature Death Prayer
Father, Chain-Breaker, I want to thank you for removing me from the kingdom of darkness and transferring me into the kingdom of your Son, Jesus. I belong to a new family now. Break the foul spirit of premature death that has been haunting my family for generations. Break the devil’s power over my life, in the mighty name of Jesus. Devil, I remind you that I belong to a new family now. You have no control over my life. My family and I will live to praise the glorious works of the Lord God Almighty, the Maker of Heaven and Earth, the Maker of all that is seen and unseen. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Breaking the Curse of Rejection Prayer
Father, my Miracle-Worker, I come to your throne today to confess all my sins and the sins of my forefathers.  Thank you for forgiving us of our past, present and future sins, and accepting us into your family. We have sinned against you, and as a result, our family has been under the curse of rejection. I break loose from these curses of rejection from my earthly father’s house, in the name of Jesus. I declare that none of my children and grandchildren will be rejected because we now belong to God’s holy family and we are children of the one, true God. We will always find favor with you, dear Father. In Jesus’ name, I  believe, and pray, Amen.

Blessing Prayer
Father God of Infinite Blessings, your word says that you have adopted me into your family. Therefore, I am Abraham’s descendant and an heir, together with Jesus Christ. From today onwards, I refuse to walk in the curses of my family and choose to walk in the blessings of Abraham. I break free from every curse that has been spoken over me by my family, friends, and even strangers. I cancel the power of predictions made over my life. I declare that I am a blessing to my loved ones and not a curse. The work of the hand of God is blessed and is upon me. God blesses me when I come and he blesses me when I go. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
