Does the Bible teach generational and ancestral curses? I went to Catholic Answers and found this:
What does the Catholic Church teach about ancestral curses? Should we pray about breaking these curses?
There’s no Church teaching or early Church writings on this belief that evil spirits hold people bound through their ancestral lines and that prayer can break those ties.
But I found this on another Catholic site:
CATHOLIC PRAYER FOR RELEASE FROM ANCESTRAL CURSES
(Catholic Prayer for the Release from Ancestral Curses; revealed to Barnabas Nwoye – approved)
Eternal Father, You are the Only Immortal God, God Who is Love, merciful and kind. Look at Your only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ, and have mercy.
I offer You the pains of His scourging at the pillar, His Wounds and Blood for all Your people who are living under the weight of the curse due to the sins of their ancestors and their disobedience for breaking the covenant they made with You.
May You set us free through the scourging of Your Son, heal us through His Wounds and save us through His Precious Blood. Amen.
Precious Blood of Jesus Christ – release us from curses.
Holy Wounds of Jesus Christ – heal our wounds.
By Your scourging – seal us.
(Any family that is suffering from the curse of sins committed by their forefathers, who makes a 144 day novena through this prayer, will be freed.)
