Scripture Reading: Leviticus 26:36-42
Welcome to the 18th day of our 21-day fasting and prayer. Galatians 3:13 says, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us.” Today we stand to enforce our redemption from curses – both generational and intergenerational. We stand in prayer to reject and cancel every form of curses and evil spell and pronouncements. We stand to claim, to activate our freedom from curses of which Jesus redeemed us. Jesus has redeemed us from all forms of curses – legitimate and illegitimate – so by the power in the name of Jesus we enforce our freedom from curses, we break their effects and manifestations from our lives and families in the name of Jesus. When you are under a generational curse, it affects you from the first day of your life until the moment it is broken. For many, that day never comes. People do not often believe in or talk about curses perhaps, they sound ancient and superstitious. They are very real and their sad effects are countless. In Deuteronomy 28: 15 – 68, there are 122 curses pronounced by God ranging from sickness to poverty and captivity. Generational curses are passed from one generation to another. They continue until Christ intervenes when we call on Him. Child of God, as we apply God’s Word and power to our lives, and as we choose to walk in righteousness and obedience to God, especially as we painstakingly observe this fasting and prayer program, the chains will be broken. Jesus Christ in the power of His Spirit has come down to set you free. Do you believe that? Hear this. “The cure for a generational curse starts with repentance”. So as usual ensure that you have truly repented of every known sin. The good news is that Jesus has redeemed us; He died in our place, and he bought us with His precious Blood. So these curses cannot affect us again. We need to remove ourselves from every evil inheritance and confess with our mouths that we belong to the family of God.

Prayer Points: (Beloved please make these declarations with great faith)
- Prayer of Renunciation Concerning the Sins of Ancestors: “As a child of God purchased by the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, I here and now renounce and repudiate all the sins of my ancestors and other family members. As one who has been delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the kingdom of God’s dear Son, I cancel out all curses, spells, hexes (someone believed to bring bad luck), or other demonic workings that have been passed on to me from my ancestors or from other family members. As one who had been crucified with Jesus Christ and raised to walk in newness of life, I cancel every curse, spell, hex or other evil matters that may have been put upon me. I announce to Satan and all his forces that Christ became a curse for me when He hung on the Cross. As one who has been crucified and raised with Christ and now sits with Him in heavenly places, I renounce any and every way in which Satan may claim ownership of me. I declare myself to be eternally and completely signed over and committed to the Lord Jesus Christ. All this I do in the name and by the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ.
- In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, by the power of His Cross, His Blood and His Resurrection, I take authority over all curses, hexes, spells, voodoo practices, witchcraft assignments, satanic rituals, incantations and evil wishes that have been sent my way, or have passed down the generational bloodline. I break their influence over my life by the power of the risen Lord Jesus Christ, and I command these curses to go back to where they came from and be replaced with blessings. I ask forgiveness for and renounce all negative inner vows and agreements that I have made with the enemy, and I ask that You Lord Jesus Christ release me from any bondage they may have held on me. I claim Your shed Blood over all aspects of my life, relationships, ministry, endeavors and finances. I thank you for Your enduring love, your angelic protection, and for the fullness of your abundant blessings upon my life.
- In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I ask, O Lord God, that You break and dissolve any and all curses, hexes, spells, seals, satanic vows and pacts, spiritual bindings and soul ties with satanic forces, evil wishes, evil desires, hereditary seals, snares, traps, lies, obstacles, deceptions, diversions, spiritual influences, and every dysfunction and disease from any source whatsoever, that have been placed upon me. Amen.
