Prayer Focus for Lesson 12
Reversing the Curse: Head to Heart Guide
Receiving the blessing of your generations requires forgiving all who came before you! If we want to be free to receive the blessing that God intends to come our way through our generations then we will have to forgive and fully accept the parents (and ancestors) that He has given us. Remember that God did not choose them for the sake of what was wrong in their ways, but for the sake of what was right.
Not to forgive and accept our parents or family heritage is actually to reject ourselves for we truly are their offspring; it is also a definite—though often unrecognized—rejection of God who chose them for us in His love and wisdom. Just take it in faith that the Father always has good things up His sleeve (James 1:17), believe for the blessing He wants you to receive, and do the forgiving—no matter how much you have may have been wronged.
Your faithfulness endures to all generations. Psalms 119:90 ESV
Dear Heavenly Father, I choose by an act of my will to forgive my parents or family members for all the ways that they failed me or hurt me. I renounce all the sins in my generational line and I repent for having walked in them myself. Forgive me and break their power over me. I put the Blood of Jesus between me and any generational sin and I cancel all assignments of the enemy in Jesus’ Name. I choose to fully accept myself as the child of the family line You have given me and look forward to how you have positioned me through them to serve Your purposes in my generation.
