Breaking Generational Curses (1)

“However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you” (Deuteronomy 28:15).

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)? Some conditions require us to 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).

I am a trained Social Worker who currently provides professional leadership on a programme to support Social Work students and Newly Qualified Social Workers entering the Social Work Profession.

Born and raised in Jamaica in a Christian family where my father is an ordained Pastor and Deacon who has served for over 50 years in the ministry. My father is also a trained musician and our family can be described as a musical family. I grew up in a small farming community in St. Peter’s, St. Andrew and my parents also have a small farm.

I credit my gift of writing to my father who I watched and listened to over the years as he wrote sermons, poems and other recitals in his capacity in ministry. English has always been an easy subject for me and over the years I have developed an increased interest in writing.

I am a Trainer, I sing and have a passion for worship, the spoken word and the free flow of the prophetic anointing. I am married to my best friend Andrew Christopher Young who is an advanced Musician and whose music you can find on YouTube and Facebook. I am a trained Coach and Mentor and I love experimenting with food so I love cooking. I enjoy trying cultural dishes from across the world and I view food as an entry into cultures and languages.
