Daniel prayed to God and cried out to him for the sins of his ancestors. During Daniel’s lamentations he recalled the warnings from the prophets and the curses that God said would come on his people if they were disobedient. Moses wrote in Deuteronomy 28 about promises of blessings in the word of God for those who obey him. For those who do not obey however, the promises relates to hard conditions.
One thing is certain is that God is always waiting for his people to repent and is so merciful that he will deliver, set free and restore his people to himself. Once we have prayed the prayer of repentance, God will break generational curses.
There are some conditions that represent a curse of affliction, a curse of poverty or even a spirit of death within a family. Some families are able to trace negative generational patterns within several generations. It is no coincidence that some sicknesses and diseases stay within a family bloodline. Poverty and lack, divorce, alcoholism and drug use for example are examples of inter generational family patterns. The good news is that the anointing breaks the yoke and sets the captives free.
“Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke? (Isaiah 58:6)
We commit ourself in prayer and fasting before God, pray the prayer of repentance and confession of sins and then believe God to break spiritual yokes. To proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound. (Isaiah 61:1)
