Pray something like this: 

“Lord Jesus Christ, I come before you this day and I acknowledge you in all of my ways and ask you to make straight my path. Walk before me this day in all that I do and say and live your life in me and through me. Guide my every word, thought, judgment, counsel, and action. I acknowledge you in all of my ways and ask you to make straight is my path . “I empty myself and, as an empty vessel, receive you Holy Spirit for the work you would have me do this day for your glory. I come to you in full submission to your will in my life. In Your Name, I pray.” “Lord Jesus Christ, I confess to you all of my sins of this day, of yesterday, and every day past. I repent and renounce them, those known and unknown) those of omission and commission, in what I have done, and in what I have failed to-do. In particular, I lay down at your feet all sins of the flesh, sins of the tongue, sins of the heart, and all unholy thoughts or actions.” 

“I repent of every negative word spoken over, formed against, or directed at anyone other than me or self-inflicted upon me. I renounce those words, bind and loose them and break them off of whomever they were inflicted upon, all in Your Holy Name, Lord Jesus Christ.” “I lay all sin down at Your feet and ask you to keep me cleansed by your Precious Blood, Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.” “Father, I put on the mind of Christ and the Lord Jesus Christ consciously this day and each and every day to come. Lord Jesus Christ, I acknowledge you in ALL of my ways, and ask you to make straight my path.


 Pray something like this:

 “Father, this day and each and every day to come, I firstly bind Satan, then the ruler spirit, and every principality, power, ruler of the darkness, wicked spirit in high places, and all spirits not of the Holy Spirit in all ways, manner, and form in all of their seedings, works, plans, and activities directed at my spouse, children, family members, relatives, all true Christian believers, and lastly, against me.” “I bind and loose us all permanently from them, and I speak a curse and destruction upon all of their seedings, works, plans, activities, blueprints, plots, plans, designs, traps, wiles, snares, and assignments against them or me, in any way, manner, or form, to or through any individual, organization, adversary or would-be adversary, from this day, any day past, or any day to come.” “I bind permanently loose us permanently from, and uproot all of those seedings, works, plans and activities and I curse them at their roots, and by trusting faith, call them cancelled, nullified, never come to pass, and rendered of no effect, all in Christ Jesus’ Name.” “Your Word says Father, that no weapon formed against me (us) shall prosper. Therefore, Father, I decree that no weapon formed against me (us) prospers this day or any day to come. Your word says, Father, that trouble shall not arise a second time. Therefore, Father, I decree that Satan cannot make trouble for me (us) again, in this matter, as he did in the past, in Christ Jesus’ Name.” “Your Word says, Father, that when the enemy comes in that Your Holy Spirit will raise a standard against them. Therefore, Father, I decree that the Holy Spirit stops Satan, and all of his evil spirits, dead in their tracks in all things regarding my loved ones and me. Your Word says, Father, that in that day we shall decree (declare, speak) a thing and it will come to pass (Job 2:28). Therefore, Father, I decree all of these prayers accomplished and brought to pass by trusting faith and expectation, in Christ Jesus’ Name. (Remember that faith calls the things that are not as though they already are, in the Name of Christ Jesus.)


 Pray something like this: “Father, having bound Satan and then every principality, power, ruler of darkness, wicked spirit in high places and all spirits not of the Holy Spirit, I take into captivity and permanently bind and loose and break all negative words, negative prayers, curses, hexes, vexes, bewitchments, enchantments, spells, all psychic attacks, psychic assignments, psychic operations, physical attacks, physical assignments, physical operations, all thoughts of magic, sorcery, or witchcraft along with all demonic thoughts or threats spoken over, formed against, or directed at my spouse, my family members, children, relatives, friends, acquaintances, any true Christian believers or me, this day or any day past or any to come.” Oil uproot and break them, each and every one of them, and cast them down as vain thoughts and imaginations and by trusting faith, call them cancelled, made null and void, never manifested, never come to pass, cursed and destroyed at their roots and rendered of no effect, breaking them all in Christ Jesus’ Name.” “I decree all these things come to pass by trusting faith in Christ Jesus’ Name.”


 When an evil spirit, disease, or evil person is rebuked in the Name of Christ Jesus, it is as if the rebuke comes from the Lord Himself. The scripture says that the Name of Jesus IS the Word of God. Therefore, when Satan or a demonic spirit is rebuked in the Name of Christ Jesus, you are essentially throwing the whole Word of God against them. Rebuking can be a very powerful form of prayer. I can recall an experience in which a pediatric nurse once came to me asking if she needed deliverance. She was suddenly overcome by fear, one day, while walking the hospital. When she got to the pediatric ward, she found out that she was so fearful that she could not carry out the doctors orders, nor feed the infants, nor give them medications. This had gone on for several days and she was fearful of losing her job. I advised her to rebuke fear in Christ Jesus’ Name and she laughed and said she would have to do it one hundred and twenty times a day. I advised her to do it as often as she needed and told her that within four or five days she would probably only be rebuking fifty or sixty times a day, and by ten days, forty to fifty times a day and by fourteen days, three or four times a day and a point would come that the evil spirit would be so tormented that it would just leave. I advised her to return in two weeks. She returned in one week. She was smiling from ear to ear. She stated that on the first day, she rebuked fear, in Christ Jesus’ Name, about eighty-five times, by the fourth day she had to do it forty times, by the fifth or sixth day, only five to six times, and by the seventh or eighth day, she did not have to do it at all. Such is the power of the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the Name above all names. Pray something like this: “(Name it), I rebuke you in the Name of Christ Jesus, I rebuke you in Christ Jesus’ Name. I say I REBUKE you in Christ Jesus’ Name. I command you to leave in Christ Jesus’ Name.” Sometimes psychic attack occurs in the form of a repetitive mental statement or locution spoken into the mind of the believer. Frequently a simple rebuke is sufficient to handle it, such as this: “I rebuke that thought in Christ Jesus’ Name! I don’t receive it, in Christ Jesus’ Name! I bind you Satan and command you to cease your ministry to me, right now, in Christ Jesus’ Name. I take that thought into captivity and cast it down as a vain thought and imagination, cursing it at its roots and render it of no effect, all in Christ Jesus’ Name.”


Curses exist and are very real even in this day and age. They are present in both the Old and the New Testament. They are the invisible block to healing, deliverance, or salvation. Remember that God never changes and His Word never changes. In 

Deuteronomy 28 He sets before us the blessings and the curses, and tells us to choose which we will. We are told that if we obey all His commandments (teachings of scripture) that we will be blessed to 1,000 generations and that if we are disobedient we would be cursed to the fourth generation. Before proceeding further, please read Deuteronomy 28:3-13; Deuteronomy 28:16-68; Proverbs 26:2; and Deuteronomy 30:19. 

There are three kinds of curses: 

1. Self-inflicted by one’s own words. 

2. Those spoken over, formed against, or directed at oneself or no other person by others. 

3. Generations curses. 

Self-inflicted curses and curses spoken upon someone by others must be bound, loosed, and broken in the Name of Christ Jesus, binding Satan first. A prerequisite for the breaking of all curses is repentance on behalf of others, or oneself, for what was said intentionally or not intentionally. You will find that in general, prayer does not break curses. Repentance and declaration of a break of the curse is what is required. Generations curses cannot be broken at all, until all sins of all  ancestors and predecessors on all sides of all of ones’ families (and that of their spouses) are confessed back to the families’ origins (God will know what those sins are even though we do not), asking, with repentance, for forgiveness for all of their sins and in particular, for the specific sin or sins which brought the generations curse into the family line. Then we speak repentance for any people whom these ancestors may have hurt and ask the Lord’s forgiveness. Suspect the presence of a curse when circumstances are unchanged by prayer. Again, prayer does not break a curse, only repentance, followed by oral proclamation of breaking the curse in Christ Jesus’ Name. Follow this by speaking a blessing upon the person. Only this is effective and scriptural. Suspect a generations curse when you see: 

1. Multiple cases of the same problem occur in the family line, such as multiple premature deaths, multiple cases of a particular disease such as diabetes, multiple cases of alcoholism, multiple cases of divorce, stroke, heart disease, accidents, multiple family members practicing fornication or other repetitive sins (If the parents or grandparents were fornicators, the children and grandchildren will be fornicators; according to the spiritual laws which govern curses). 

2. Deliverance, healing, or salvation are not received. 

3. Misfortunes of the same kind or another keep happening repeatedly. 

4. Personal performance at work or at home is continually impaired or hampered despite one’s best efforts, or is continually frustrated so that nothing seems to help or to be able to change or improve it. 

5. You, your work, or efforts are continually or repeatedly opposed or destroyed by people. 

Common manifestation of curses are as follows: 

• Continual financial problems.

• Continual lack of prosperity. 

• Chronic physical or mental illnesses. 

• Premature death. 

• Multiple or repetitive accidents or injuries, particularly of the same type. 

• Chronic strife or arguments or problems with interpersonal relationships. 

• Hereditary physical or emotional problems.

• Multiple manifestations of the same kind of physical, circumstantial, or emotional problems in the family line, such as multiple cases of suicide, etc. 

• Chronic torment.

• Poor eating or sleeping habits in infants or children. 

• Failure to thrive in young infants or sickliness. 

• Business failures, single or repeated. 

• Inability to conceive children or multiple miscarriages. There are many other manifestations of curses but I have described the more common and more general manifestations. The presence of a curse is always discerned through the Spirit. The appropriate remedy is the repentance and breaking the curse in the Name of Christ Jesus. 

Curses and blessings cross over from the Old Testament to the New Testament unchanged. We see this in the New Testament on several occasions where the apostles cursed evil acts (Mark 11:2 1, Galatians 1: 8, 9). 

Saint Paul speaks a curse upon all those who preach “another gospel” or “another Jesus”: And again, in the New Testament, we see Jesus cursing the fig tree that bore no fruit. Here the fig tree symbolizes sin, the fruit of sin, or an evil work since God’s way is always increase by the bearing of good fruit. 

Noteworthy is the fact that only born-again, Spirit-filled believers can be five from curses. The reason for this is that freedom from curses along with all the other benefits of the Kingdom are the right of inheritance of those who inherit the Kingdom of God; the Bible tells us that one cannot enter the Kingdom unless one is “born-again” first. The Bible is quite clear that the blessings of the Kingdom are for the people of the Kingdom. 

Open doors to curses are as follows: 

• Involvement in the occult sciences such as witchcraft or Satanism, or organizations using the occult sciences in an open or disguised manner such as: Yoga, transcendental meditation, white witchcraft, black witchcraft, Zen, Buddhism, Hinduism, all forms of physical Yoga and mental Yoga practices (the physical and mental disciplines of demonic religions), Freemasonry and other fraternal organizations having secret rituals found in witchcraft or preaching a method of salvation of their own, magic, sorcery, astrology, palmistry, numerology, divination (telling the future) through psychic channeling, New Age movement and practices, pagan religions, telepathy, clairvoyance, seances, OuiJa board, tattoos, etc. 

• Involvement in idolatry. 

• Disobedience to God’s Word.

• Rebellion against God. 

• Pursuing sexual sins or perversions, or all sin for that matter. 

• Self-inflicted negative words or those inflicted by others. 

• Ancestral sins. • Suicide. • Dishonoring parents or those in authority. 

• Unforgiveness, bitterness, resentment, anger. 

• Manipulation and intimidation for the purpose of domination of others (witchcraft in the church (Galatians 3)). 

• Cursing God. 

• Compromising the doctrines of Christ. 

• Manipulation or defrauding of others. Willful cursing of others. Tattoos. Coveting cursed objects. Defilement of self or others. Desecration of the Body of Christ (the Church). Anti-Semitism. Divorce for reasons other than adultery (or perhaps, abandonment). Touching the anointing or the anointed of God. Failure to tithe. 

To break a self-inflicted curse through ones own negative words spoken over oneself, or those inflicted by others, pray something like this:

 “Father, I take authority over all negative words and the curse spoken by (me, or [name]) binding Satan first. I bind, loose , and break that curse, repenting for what I said (or for the other party) and asking your forgiveness. And I decree the curse now broken in Christ Jesus’ Name. I speak blessing upon (name of person cursed) in the Name of Christ Jesus.” (The blessing spoken upon the person should be the opposite of whatever the curse was). Then tell the Lord that you do this for His glory.” 

Generations curses can be broken off of oneself or others by praying something like this: 

“Lord Jesus Christ, I confess to you all of the sins of my ancestors and predecessors on all sides of all of my families that and my spouses families back to our families origins, repenting of all of their sins, and in particular, of all of their sins that brought the curse of (name that problem) into our family line. I repent of all of those ancestral sins and ask for Your forgiveness for what they did, also repenting of all their witchcraft or any other acts of evil. I ask for forgiveness for whomever they may have hurt as a consequence of these sins.”

 “I now bind, loose, and break this generation curse off of my spouse and me (and any other saved family members), breaking all ties, bonds, cords and soul-ties with all of those past ancestral sins and any other of their acts of evil. I decree that we are free and this curse is broken, for it is written that in that day you shall decree a thing and it shall come to pass. Your Word says that where there is Christ, there is liberty. Your Word says that He who the Son sets free is indeed free.” 

“I stand on Your Word, Lord Jesus Christ, decreeing this generations curse broken once and for all time and I release the blessing upon (name of person or self), all In Christ Jesus’ Name.” 

Finally, the following are things which you should speak a curse “at it’s roots” upon, in Christ Jesus’ Name: All the seedings, works, plans and activities of Satan. All seedings, works, plans, and activities of each and every evil spirit manifesting against you, to or through any individual, organization, adversary, or would-be adversary, this day, from any day past, or any day to come; all occult businesses or enterprises or organizations that come across your path; all disease at it’s roots including all cancers and cancer cells in a person’s body, commanding them to die, cursing them at their roots in the Name of Christ Jesus; all dens of iniquity including bars, adult books stores, masonic temples and organizations, false churches and false religions, gambling establishments, etc.; the fruits of all demonic strongholds in a person, community, nation, etc.; the fruits of all acts of witchcraft that they not prosper; the sin and fruits of sin in a person’s life, that it not prosper; all opposition, hindrance, interference, or obstructions (at their roots), to the hearing or propagation of the Gospel of Christ.



Pray something like this: “ Lord Jesus Christ, I stand in the gap for (name), and counter-petition for their soul and spirit in Your Name, Lord. I plead the Blood between them and Satan and every evil spirit and work of darkness. I pray a hedge of protection around them to keep them from the wiles of the enemy. I pray a hedge of thorns around them to obstruct every path that they would take that is not of you and that would lead them away from you, in order to direct them back in order to know and find You. I bind Satan, all territorial spirits, every principality, power, ruler of the darkness, wicked spirit in high places, the ruler spirit(s) on assignment against them, all familiar spirits, all curses, hexes, vexes, bewitchments, enchantments, spells, cantrips ([ kahn-trip]) ligatures, judgments of witches or warlocks, all assignments, blueprints, plots and designs of Satan, all of his seedings, works, plans and activities against him/her, and all demonic ministrations to his/her thought-life; I take them all captive to Christ and cast them down as vain thoughts and imaginations. By faith in You, Lord Jesus Christ, I call him/her born-again, sealed by the Holy Spirit, Spirit-filled, healed and delivered from all oppression of the enemy. Through the ministry of impartation by the spoken word and prayer, I speak into his/her life, strength in the inner man, and I call a clear, unobstructed path cut to his/her heart, mind, soul and spirit; I bind each and every spirit of (name it) ministering to his/her thoughts and command that they stop ministry now and decree that they must do so for Your Glory, Lord; I break their powers, communication lines, supply lines, and bind up and off all reinforcements. I take into captivity all of their seedings, works, plans and activities, and call them all canceled, mad null and void, never seeded, never come to pass, cursed and destroyed at their roots and rendered of no effect in his/her life. I bind all spirits not of the Holy Spirit, all spirits mentioned or unmentioned, known or unknown, and all of their assignments against him/her and break their powers, also, off of his/her life. I plead the Blood against all of them.

I break their powers, plots, and designs. I take captive to Christ, bind, break, destroy, and loose (name) from all works of evil and witchcraft, and from all workings through blood pacts, blood covenants, or blood sacrifices or curses spoken over, formed against, or directed at him/ her. I take all of these things into captivity, break them off of their body, mind and spirit, and curse them at the roots, call them cancelled, made null and void, never seeded or completed, never come to pass, cursed and destroyed at their roots and rendered of no effect. By faith in Jesus’ Name, Father, I dispatch warrior angels and ministering angels to go forth immediately to minister to (name), to protect him/her, to turn the enemy back and drive the enemy out of their life, to retrieve soul-fragments by force, which I call restored to (name) and re-integrated into their soul-life by Your Spirit of power and might of the Holy Spirit. Father, Jesus said that no man can come to Him unless called by the Father. Please, Father, have compassion upon (name). Call them to Jesus. Give them the desire and the Grace to respond and to reach out, that they may have a revelation of Jesus and who He is. Where there is a heart of stone, Father, give him/her a heart of flesh; soften his/her heart to me, Lord. Show them Your mercy and compassion and make a way out for them, Father. Make them to see with the eyes of Your Spirit and to hear with the ears of Your Spirit. Do not withhold any good thing, Father. Lord Jesus Christ, Your promise to me in Your Word is that my household and I will be saved. Your Word is true. You are not a man that You should lie. Perform Your Word, Lord, for his/her life and my life, for Your Glory, Lord. You are able to deliver and I know that You will, Lord. Holy Spirit, fall on him/her in a mighty and powerful way. ith in God. I need only to have faith in a Great God, and that God is You, Lord Jesus Christ, One with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Lord, I walk by faith and not by sight. I confess and decree ALL of these things that I have prayed, fully accomplished already in the Spirit, Lord, in Your Name and for Your Glory. I decree that the enemy is already defeated in the life of (name). I speak to you, Satan and all of your spirits, and I command you and demand that you take your hands off of (name) right now, in Christ Jesus Name. (Name) is loosed from you in the Name of Jesus. He is now cordoned off with warrior angels of the Lord Christ Jesus and I decree to you that you cannot and you will not have him/her. Get your hands off of him/her and do it now. I curse at the roots every legal ground upon which you try to stand, Satan, and I call them null and void by faith in Jesus’ Name. I plead and speak the Blood of Jesus which was your defeat at the cross, against every demonic stronghold and call all strongholds in the life of (name), DOWN in Christ Jesus’ Name.

 “Father, I consecrate this oil as the anointing oil of the Holy Spirit, and speak and decree that it is imparted with the power of the Holy Spirit for healing and deliverance, for your Word says that in that day you will decree a thing and IT WILL come to pass.” (Job 22:28). “So -1 decree it and ask you to EMPOWER it now, by FAITH... in Christ Jesus’ Name.” “I thank you, father, for already having heard and granted this prayer, in Christ Jesus’ Name.” Prayer of Application of Anointing Oil “This is HOLY GROUND in Christ Jesus Name.”  -OR- “This is KINGDOM TERRITORY in Christ Jesus Name.”

I ask your forgiveness and renounce all sin which defiled these premises and its grounds. I now anoint this house and consecrate it to YOU for your GLORY, and, by faith, speak it cleansed throughout by the Blood of Christ Jesus of ALL that is unholy in it and on its grounds.... ALL by FAITH in CHRIST JESUS, NAME. I decree it CLEANSED, KINGDOM TERRITORY and HOLY GROUND, all in CHRIST JESUS NAME.
