Prayer For Breaking Curses And Releasing Blessings

Let it be done! Dear Lord, We know that the world is a broken place. We have seen the pain, heard the cries of fear, and felt the struggle of so many who live in fear. We pray for those who are suffering, because we have all suffered at one time or another. But we also know that there is hope, and we ask you to show us how to best help those who need it most. We pray for our country today: for protection from harm and evil; for leaders who are wise, strong, and compassionate; for justice for all; for peace between nations; and for those in power to find their way back to your path. We pray that your light will shine through us today—and always—that our words will be kind and helpful rather than hurtful or harmful; that our actions will bring healing instead of pain; that when we look into each other’s eyes today—and always—we will see only love and compassion reflected back at us by our Creator.

Dear God,

We come before you today to pray for the breaking of curses and the release of blessings in our lives. We know that there are things holding us back from our true potential, and we confess that we have not been living up to our highest selves. We ask you to break any curses that were placed upon us by other people or ourselves in the past, and open the door for new blessings to come into our lives. We pray that we will be able to see clearly the things that are holding us back, and that we will be able to overcome them so that we can live life as it was meant to be lived. Lord God, hear our prayers!

I ask You to break every curse, word, and deed that stands in the way of my blessings. I ask You to release me from any bondage that has been placed upon me by others. I ask that You break all curses that have been laid upon my family line, as well as those placed upon me by myself through my own words, deeds and decisions.

I ask for Your protection from any further curses being laid against me or my family line.

I ask for Your forgiveness for any part that I may have played in the laying of these curses upon myself or others.

I thank You for hearing and answering my prayers today. I thank You for showing up on my behalf in this situation, and releasing me from any bondage that was holding me back from living a life full of blessings!

Dear God,

I am asking for your help in breaking the negative patterns that have been holding me back in life. I know that it is not my fault that I have been cursed, but I also realize that I can’t break free from the curse until I stop making the same mistakes over and over again. Please help me to learn from my mistakes, forgive myself, and release myself from all curses so that I may move forward with confidence and positivity.

Psalms for Breaking Curses

90:10 Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm us unto the end, That we may walk in His statutes, and keep His commandments, and obey them.

91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: My God; in Him will I trust. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: 5 His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 6 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 7 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 8 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 9 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see thine enemies as they fall down before

Amen

Lord, thank you for this day. Thank you for the chance to be here, to breathe, and to live.

Thank you for the opportunity to release curses and break chains that bind me. I ask that you help me do so, by giving me strength and courage to do whatever it takes to make my life better.

I pray for peace for those who have been hurt by me or by others. Help me learn from these mistakes and grow from them, so that I can become a person who brings peace into their lives instead of pain.

I pray that all my relationships will be healthy and fruitful. Help me to use my words wisely, so that they bring healing instead of harm. Give me wisdom about when it’s time to speak up and when it’s best just to listen—and help me find ways to show love through silence as well as speech.

Three Keys for Breaking the Chains in Your Life

Certain Bible verses stick with you, get inside your head, and do real work. I’d classify most of them as Meaningful, some as Moving, many as Important, and few others as Words to Live By. On a few very rare occasions, though, the inspired Word of God is memorable because it gives you a metaphorical slap in the face.

Such was the case for me when I first read 2 Peter 2:21, 22: “It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: ‘A dog returns to its vomit’ and ‘A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud’” (NIV).

What had I just read? A person would literally be better off never knowing God and the words of truth than to know and then turn his back on it? Did the Bible just use the word “vomit” in a sentence?

Breaking Down the Message

As with many things in my faith, this passage in 2 Peter came to mean more to me over time. In the moment, though, it had never occurred to me that such a state of being was possible. The implications were heavy. To know the Word of God even in part for a time felt preferable to being in the dark. But on the other hand, it makes sense that knowing God and then choosing to ignore him in your life could be more insulting. I was compelled to dig deeper.

The first chapter of this book penned by the apostle Peter is encouraging and offers advice on how to add to your faith with goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love (2 Peter 1:5-7). Definitely the Moving category; who doesn’t like a good list to follow? Check those boxes, Peter says, and you can assure you won’t be ineffective or unproductive in your knowledge of Jesus. This is the work you do to ensure you will never fall away.

But woe to those who break bad among the Christian fold. It’s incredibly tempting to let the world get inside our minds and make us shortsighted, to lust after things that will be fun for a moment and destructive later. Peter speaks of those who start to believe their own lies, and then drag others around them along for the ride down (2 Peter 2:18). Pulling no punches, Peter plainly explains in verse 20, “If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning” (NIV).

This is a New Testament lesson with an Old Testament vibe. I’ve heard arguments about an inability to fall from the grace of God, and I believe this and other verses are evidence that it is totally possible to do so. God meets us more than halfway. He’s given us all the tools we need to follow him: grace, the Holy Spirit, prayer, and each other for encouragement, just to name a few. But if you then reject these things, you are genuinely broken and in grave danger. All of us sin, no one is perfect, but we must take care not to let those sins multiply to the point where our job becomes justifying them rather than seeking to follow God’s will.

Breaking Up the Negative Pattern

The apostle Peter doesn’t make us wait long for the answer on how to Houdini our way out of the chains that bind us. He provides three distinct keys to consider.

  1. God Is Patient

Peter describes how some will say the Lord we believe in isn’t real and isn’t coming back to earth to take his followers back to Heaven with him. The words were written in the first century; 2,000 years later they are even more potent to consider as challenges to our faith. Have you ever considered the time we have here is meant to be for our benefit? “He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9, NIV). When we’re not busy falling off the righteous path, it’s our job to grab the hands of those who are, and steady them through encouragement, sharing the truth, and being their friend.

  1. Look Forward

“But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells” (2 Peter 3:13, NIV). Our eternal reward in Heaven is our reason to take the longer perspective. How difficult this is for a younger person is impossible to describe in words! But as we grow in wisdom, it becomes easier to see the impact of hard living on ourselves. Ignoring the cheap thrills for something lasting almost always pays off, both in life and afterward.

  1. Be on Guard

“Be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position” (2 Peter 3:17, NIV). Peter again warns that the doubters will not be content being alone, but will try to get others to join them. I am reminded of an old rock song, “Heaven” (2003) from the band Live. It meant so much to me at the time because the chorus says: “I don’t need no one to tell me about Heaven/ I look at my daughter, and I believe.” My own daughter was two years old at the time, and the song really spoke to me.

The second verse begins, “Sit with them all night, everything they say seems right, but in the morning they were wrong.” How true that can be! People can be persuasive, so you need to be on guard for those challenges to your faith, ready to defend your own, and perhaps even persuade them to see things your way.

I had a friend at work once who was known for his wild and crazy antics. He was always far nicer to me than to most people who were not known as God followers, so we spent a lot of time together. One day out of the nowhere he floored me with a confession. “I want to have what you have,” he said. “I want to have a wife and kids and be happy all the time.” He has those things now. Sometimes the slap in the face doesn’t come directly from the Bible, but from the lack of what the alternative offers.

Being a Christian carries real weight. You are in essence judged by a higher standard than those without it, something not to be taken lightly. But never forget you are also infinitely more prepared to resist the things that would drag you back into the mud . . . or vomit. We can replace that unpleasant visual with another, one of Jesus washing away all of that through his sacrifice on the cross for our sins.

Prayer To Break Family Curses

In The Christmas Carolthe ghost of Jacob Marley, the deceased business partner of Scrooge, says this:

I wear the chain I forged in life,” replied the Ghost. “I made it link by link, and yard by yard; I girded it on of my own free will, and of my own free will I wore it.

This imagery reminds me of key advice my father shared with me years ago, which continues to ring in my heart. He said, “Son, don’t make it your goal to be like your dad. By God’s grace, I’ve broken many chains in my life, some handed down to me through the generations. As long as God gives me life, I will continue to break chains. But your goal should be to break even more chains and go beyond me, not just be like me. And I trust that your children will do the same, and break more even more chains than you have done.”

Does Scripture teach that there is such a thing as generational chains? Do grandparents and parents pass on particular sin habits and personal weaknesses to their children and grandchildren? The answer seems to be ‘yes.’

In Exodus 20:5, we find that God said, “Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.”

What does the “visiting the iniquity” statement mean? Perhaps you have mistakenly thought, as some Israelites apparently did, that God punishes children and grandchildren for the sins committed by their parents and grandparents. This is a mistaken conclusion. Passages like Deuteronomy 24:16, 2 Kings 14:6 and Ezekiel 18:20 affirm this.

The Hebrew word translated “visiting” features several layers of meaning. On one hand, it expresses ideas such as ‘to inspect, review or number,’ and can be used for taking a census. How is this relevant?

It appears that God numbers or reviews sin by tracing it through generational lines. For instance, if a genealogy specialist counted how many people in a particular family tree struggle with stealing, when an early father in the lineage was a kleptomaniac, the total number of people in successive generations with a tendency to steal would be likely be high. Why? Because stealing habits were deposited into the family line early on, and many children and grandchildren picked it up. Does this happen? Yes, it does.

In addition to this layer of meaning for the word visiting, you should know that it does communicate ideas such as ‘to inflict or punish.’ But because of passages like Deuteronomy 24:16, 2 Kings 14:6 and Ezekiel 18:20, we know that God does not punish a successive generation for the sins of a previous generation.

This oft-repeated theme speaks of God’s determination to punish successive generations for committing the same sins they learned from their parents … God will indeed punish generation after generation (“to the third and fourth generation”) if they keep doing the same sorts of sins that prior generations did. If the children continue to do the sins their parents did, they will receive the same punishments as their parents.

What bad habits, personal struggles or sinful tendencies have lingered in your family line for generations? Alcoholism, depression, verbal or physical abuse, immorality, racism, bitterness, dishonesty or fear? While any person may commit any sin, it seems apparent that children wrestle with the same sins as their parents did in an especially noticeable way.

So whether you have inherited certain propensities genetically or from exposure to regular family behavior, the Lord is able to overcome these battles and strongholds in your life as you determine to depend upon Him.

  • My father calls this “breaking chains.”
  • Ezekiel calls this “turning from all your sins” (Exod 18:21).
  • Joel calls this “restoring the years the locust have eaten” (Joel 2:25).
  • Paul calls this “pulling down strongholds” (2 Cor 10:4) and “casting down imaginations” (2 Cor 10:5).

Whatever you call it, generational chains exist. And generational chains can be broken. Identify the wrong thoughts that encourage your wrong behavior, and stop making generational excuses for it. Replace those wrong thoughts with biblical thoughts, and press forward in total dependence upon Jesus Christ. He will enable you to break the chains of your fathers and reflect the character of your heavenly Father instead.

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. (Phil 3:14-15)

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith…” (Heb 12:1-2)

“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” (2 Pet 1:4)
