Generational Prayer Model

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Salvation is a gift from God through His grace.  There is nothing we can do to earn it.  Once we give our life to Christ, in addition to salvation, we regain access to the authority given up when mankind first sinned. (Genesis Chapter 3).

Even though salvation is free, we must still work out this salvation. (Philippians 2:12).  Working out salvation means following God’s lead as we exercise the authority we have through Jesus Christ to clean up our lives and our family line.

Generational prayer gives us an opportunity to do this.

This model is intended as a starting point, not a method.  It is imperative that we always follow God’s lead.

For a more thorough explanation, and a demonstration of this model, we invite you to watch “Understanding Generational Prayer


Step 1 Briefly get to know the person you are about to pray for.

Step 2 Briefly introduce self (i.e. your background, history, etc.).

Step 3 Provide a brief explanation about generational strongholds.
“The LORD passed in front of Moses, calling out, ‘Yahweh! The LORD!
The God of compassion and mercy! I am slow to anger and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness. I lavish unfailing love to a thousand generations. I forgive iniquity, rebellion, and sin. But I do not excuse the guilty. I lay the sins of the parents upon their children and grandchildren;
the entire family is affected — even children in the third and fourth generations.’” (Exodus 34:6-7 NLT)

Step 4 Provide a brief explanation about the gift of discernment from Hebrews 4:15

a. Touch (Acts 12:7)
b. Smell (Psalm 45:8)
c. Hearing (2 Samuel 5:22-24)
d. Taste (Job 6:30)
e. Sight (Isaiah 6:12)
f. Evil default (Acts 16:18)

Step 5 Open in prayer: Holy Spirit I invite you to cleanse (person’s name) generational line. In the name of Jesus, I command all evil to leave (person’s name) family line and go to the feet of Jesus! Amen.

Step 6 Determine the generational issue

Ask the person if they have had:
a. A recent or recurring dream.
b. If they haven’t, ask them if they have had a childhood memory of anything that has troubled them over the years.

Note: A recent or recurring dream or troubling memory will be the starting point of the generational prayer process. For example, if the person has had a dream or memory about lust there is likely a stronghold of sexual impurity in their family line. If the person remembers their childhood being very lonely, loneliness may be something the enemy planted in their family line. Note: The Lord may give you a strategic dream the morning of your appointment that reveals the stronghold.

Step 7 Determine when the stronghold began

Ask: Lord, how many generations back was (generational issue) empowered in (person’s name’s) family line?

Note: The Holy Spirit will give the person you are praying for (and you) and other team members, the numbers of the specific generations when the enemy empowered evil in the person’s family line. The Holy Spirit will do this by giving you an impression or vision, etc. Note: As the Holy Spirit gives different numbers when lust or loneliness was empowered and re-empowered in the generational line be cognizant of any sensory confirmation (“hits” in the Spirit) on your body. Clue: The stronger the sensory confirmation the greater the presence of evil in that particular generation.

Step 8 Determine the country

Ask: Lord, what country was (the generational issue) empowered in?

Step 9 Determine what happened

Ask: Lord, what happened (i.e. an event) at this generation to empower (i.e. lust or loneliness) in the family line?

Wait on the Lord to show you “how” the enemy infiltrated the family line.

Step 10 Start with the biggest number and ask the Holy Spirit: Lord, what happened at (such and such’s) generation to empower (i.e. lust or loneliness) in the generational line?

As soon as you have prayed this prayer, “wait” on the Lord to give you a “word of knowledge,” “impression” or “vision” as to what happened in this specific generation to empower (i.e. lust or loneliness) in the generational line. For example you may hear the words “prostitution”, “orgies”, etc.

Step 11 Then pray: In the name of Jesus I come against all evil that has been given the legal right to establish the stronghold of lust in (person’s name) family line. I break, shatter and destroy lust from the (start with the generation you determined in step 7) and demand that (root of generational issue i.e. lust) go to the feet of Jesus! Note: (Wait for the evil to leave. (We find most often that you will sense this through your evil default on your head.)

Step 12 Have the person pray through “Renunciation of Sins in the Family Line” from Aslan’s Place “Prayers for Generational Deliverance.”

Note:As the person is praying this prayer take careful note of any impressions, sensations, visions you have. As they come to mind command them to leave (for i.e. say “lust leave.” “Sexual impurity leave.” Etc.) Be sure to explain that when you are telling the strongholds to leave that it does not reflect upon them personally but is the evil leaving their generational line.

Step 13 Once the person has finished renouncing the sins in their family line go to the next lowest number. (Remember you started with the highest number) Pray: Lord at the (nth generation what re-empowered (i.e. lust or loneliness) in the family line

Step 14 Wait on the Lord to show you which prayer to have the person pray from Aslan’s Place prayer manual. Keep in mind that the Holy Spirit does something different in each deliverance session. Because of this you can’t rely on set prayers for every session. Some of the most commonly used prayers are:

– “Prayer Breaking Ungodly Ties Between a Person and the Dimensions
– “Prayer of Renunciation for the Misogynistic Spirit
– “Prayer to Release One from the Ungodly Depths
– “Prayer of Release from Chronic, Physical, Mental and Spiritual Disorders
– “Prayer to Release Supernatural Favor to Proclaim the Favorable Year of the Lord

Step 15 Continue on to the next lowest number and repeat the above prayer process until you come to the present generation. At this point pray: From the present generation to (person’s name) descendants to a thousand generations.

Next, ask the person to close their eyes and ask the following questions:

1. Can you see yourself as a creative spirit before God’s throne (mention Jeremiah 1:5)?

2. Did you want to join your mother and father’s sperm and egg at conception?

3. Did anything happen to you between leaving God’s throne and conception?

4. Ask: Lord, did, any ungodly trades occur?

– See Ezekiel 27:13 (ESV) Joel 3:3, Revelation 18:13 (ESV)

Note: Ungodly trades occur when unborn children are “dedicated” to false altars. For example parents could dedicate their future child to an animal in the Zodiac (the snake, the dragon, etc.). Ungodly trades also occur when blood is shed.

Step 16 Ask the Lord to remove all idols and false altars from the family line.

Step 17 Have the person pray the following prayer:

Lord, I repent for those in my family line who traded human souls with the enemy for present favor. I repent for this and I demand back from the enemy all parts of my spirit, soul and body that were scattered. I declare to my spirit, soul and body that I will yield to the Holy Spirit. I repent for all blood sacrifices and offerings of blood in my family line that gave the enemy the legal right to scatter parts of my spirit, soul and body among the ungodly stars. I now, declare that I will rule and reign over the gates and doors assigned to me and my family line! Please remove all evil that tried to prevent me from being conceived. Amen!

Step 18 Have the person pray the prayer, “Ruling and Reigning with Christ.”

Step 19 Follow the Rapid Healing Model in the Prayers for Generational Deliverance.

Step 20 Conclude the prayer session by blessing the person by speaking Numbers 6:24-27 and Isaiah 11:2-3 over their life.

May the Lord bless you with many gifts! May the Lord guard you with a hedge of protection! May the Lord illuminate the wholeness of His being toward you to bring order to your life! May the Lord beautify you! May the Lord lift up His wholeness of being and look upon you and set in place all you need to be whole and complete! May the Spirit of the Lord rest on you! May the Spirit of wisdom and understanding guide you! May the Spirit of counsel and might move mightily through you! And may the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord encounter you at all times. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
