Breaking Ancestral African Witchcraft

PLEASE BEWARE OF PEOPLE TRYING TO RE-ROUTE YOU TO SPELL CASTERS AND WORKERS OF WITCHCRAFT AND DECEIT!!! I try to remove those comments as soon as they post them, because I don't want to contribute to confusion. PLEASE do not give any attention to those trying to re-route website traffic to spell casters. That is witchcraft and it will open huge doors to the occult in the lives of those that seek help from them. Those kind of comments are just a hook to try to get people interested in turning to the wrong source for help. Those that practice the occult  is to serve their demons and demonize others. Spell casters profess to help but they are deceived themselves and they deceive others. The source of their knowledge and 'expertise' is from an unholy source, from Satan himself.  Some of these people may even mean well, thinking they are helping others - BUT, they work with the devil to place curses in the lives of the ignorant and unsuspecting. My prayers are there to help people get free and BREAK CURSES!

ALWAYS, always, turn to the Lord Jesus Christ for help. His love and His intentions are never with mixed motives. His is holy and cannot lie or deceive. Jesus Christ is the LIBERATOR AND CURSE BREAKER.

In my attempts to assist certain individuals from African descent, I have noticed that there are some additional things that may be not specifically addressed in generational prayer issues (In the Breakthrough Prayer). Those in the African culture often have a history of witchcraft and sorcery. Rituals are often performed when a new child enters the family, and sometimes the rituals are performed later in childhood as a rite of passage or indoctrination into shamanism and witchcraft. This prayer is to break those ungodly alliances and demonic attachments.  There is also another prayer under the pages section of this webpage that deals with other bloodline curses, especially stemming from slavery. Please be sure to check out that prayer too! 


Dear Heavenly Father,

I seek Your help, the help that is only available to me through Jesus Christ, the blood of the lamb, and His Holy Spirit. I desperately want to be cleansed from demonic spirits, unbroken curses and familiar spirits that have been a part of my life, through my family members, from even before my birth. I ask You, Jesus Christ, Lord of all, to be my Lord and Savior. I ask You to cleanse me from all unrighteousness and set me free.

I repent for any way that I have knowingly or unknowingly given place to demonic spirits and allowed them to access my life. I renounce the sins of my parents, grandparents, and other ancestors that have participated in witchcraft, all forms of sorcery and occultism. This day I divorce the enemy, Satan, and all other false gods and religions.

Father God, Lord Jesus and Holy Spirit,

I want nothing to do with any of these spirits or their ungodly practices. This day I divorce the enemy and all false gods that have been a part of my life, whether through inherited curses, the sins of my ancestors or my own involvement.  Please forgive me and those in my family line. Please wash us clean from this iniquity and let the blood of Jesus cover our sins, and close the doors to the enemy. I ask you to cleanse me from all unrighteousness according to Your word in 1 John 1:9. You said if I confessed my sins, You were able and just to forgive them and cleanse me from this unrighteousness. I submit to Your Lordship, Jesus, and the authority of Your Holy Spirit. You are the only God for me! I will not serve any other God but You! I ask You to restore my life, my health, my finances, my well being, good, healthy and godly relationships, and bless me the way you want me to be blessed.

Father, I forgive my family members for the hurt they have caused me. I forgive them for releasing curses in my life. I ask You to bless them with revelation and understanding of the error of their ways so that they can find their salvation and deliverance in You, Jesus. Please heal their minds, set their hearts free, and take good care of them. I release them into your hands. 

Now, confident that I am forgiven of my own sins, I take the authority that You have given me, and I declare:

According to Revelation 12:9,the dragon, that old serpent called Satan and the devil has been cast out of me, and all his dark angels with him .

In the name and authority of Jesus Christ, I loose myself from all punishing, tormenting and vengeful spirits assigned to my life that would perpetuate a curse.

In the name and authority of Jesus Christ, I declare Him only to be my shield, protector, guardian, and refuge. 

I command every demonic chain to be severed from my life in the name of Jesus.

(This next part is included for for those seeking future mates or if you are praying for your children's future spouse).  

I declare that death and hell no longer have the right to advance against my life or any future children or family members I may have. Father, I pray that you prepare the heart and life of my future spouse (As well as my children's spouses) to also be educated and informed about generational curses. Prepare him/her/them now also, to be cleansed from the iniquity of her bloodlines. Help us/them to be well prepared for one another, and I trust You to bring us together when we are adequately prepared for one another. Let us together raise a family without inherited generational curses, and train our/their children in the ways of the Lord. 

I command every demonic spirit on assignment over my life to return to the place that Jesus made for you. Do not come back, I want nothing to do with you and I resist you! According to James 4:7 you must now flee from me, my home and everything that pertains to me. Get out in Jesus name!! 

Let the curse over my home, myself and my family, and all that pertains to us be broken now, in Jesus name. I thank You, Father, for allowing us to receive Your restoration and the blessings that have been held back. I ask that Your Holy Spirit fill me with love, truth, wisdom, might, a spirit of understanding and enable me to live according to Your commands. Let the ruach, the breath of God come into me now, according to John 20:22 where You breathed on Your disciples and they received the breath of God. In Jesus name, Amen.


  1. Thank you so very much for this prayer! I live in south Louisiana where witchcraft is widely accepted and through tradition is even passed down from generation to generation. I knew these practices are not of God and those spirits knew I was finding out the truth and wanted to stop me. I have had persons do voodoo, hoodoo things to me to keep me in torment and bound. After much praying and asking God how to stop these things from destroying my life, I found this page. I have also read and prayed about the generational curses as well. Thank you for addressing this and for helping me be free once and for all!!!

  2. Hello Friend,

    Yes, voodoo and other forms of occult witchcraft are very strong in Lousinana, but also in many parts of our nation and the rest of the world, too. So glad you found the prayer. Make sure you do the Breakthrough Prayer also. It covers a lot of ground and has been proven to be quite effective!

  3. Hello Laura,
    Do you have a prayer to cleanse homes. We just move into a new home and a spirit of perversion attacked me in my sleep. I havent and will not sleep in there until i've cleanse my home in prayer. These prayers are of Godly wisdom. Be Continually Blessed, Charita Johnson

  4. Hi Charita,

    Pray the one that is Prayer to be Healed From Sexual Molestation. It deals with incubus/succubus type spirits. Remember, spirits look for open doors in your life that you may not realize are there. The Breakthrough Prayer is also very thorough.

    Go through your house with some anointing oil ( if you don't have anointing oil simply take some olive oil and declare a blessing over it in the name of the father, Son, and Holy Spirit.) Command evil spirits out in the name of Jesus. If you still need help, email me at

  7. Hi Laura. Thank you very much for your help with defeating Lileth, incubus and succubus in my life. While I had that demon I could not do sex with my husband as it caused my vagina to be tight and not loosen. I can now have a normal sex life with my husband since casting out that demon. I am having problems with evil spirits targeting my head and reproductive organs at the moment, especially when I try to sleep. As a result I do not get much sleep most nights. God showed me the legal right is iniquity (sin) on my property from people who were in my house and property before I moved in. I was told by a prophet and God that it has something to do with the municipality and bamah high places for ancestral worship (I live in Africa). We rent from the municipality. What must I do to get rid of these demons? I have already anointed and prayed over the house/property and thrown out things inviting demons.

  8. Hi Shellique,

    If you use the search bar at the top of the page, look for prayer to heal land, family and business. It renounces the sins of those that are property owners or former property owners. It is unfortunate but you are definitely affected by the ruling spirits in that nation, and specifically in the region where you live. Do the prayer, but be specific to the types of spirits that are prevalent in your area. You could even go through the prayer to break African Witchcraft and speak it over yourself as well as any property owners that own the home where you live. Repent on their behalf as well as your own. Then go around your property line and pour grape juice and oil, reclaiming the land, home and property for the kingdom of God. Tell the Lord you are claiming the ground for Him and ask Him to show you if there is anything else you need to do. There have been several times in various places where I have actually written scriptures on wooden stakes, anointed them with oil and prayed over them, and driven them into the ground at different properties to 'stake my claim' for the kingdom, so to speak. Those spirits are stubborn but remember that as a child of God, you have authority over the enemy. God's spirit lives in you, and His word reminds you that "Greater is He that lives in me than he that lives in the world." Also, James 4:6,7 is a principle that works when it is done correctly. IF a person is truly submitted to God, THEN they can resist the enemy and the enemy must flee. Ask Holy Spirit if there is something the enemy sees that gives him legal grounds to be in your life that you may not be aware of, then you will know how to address it.

    Bless you,
