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.  What they don’t tell you is that NO ONE involved in the occult, or turning to witch doctors, spell casters, fortune tellers and mediums, etc. can actually help.  Sure, demons can influence other demons to do the will of Satan, but they are great liars.

Just like anything else involved in the occult, it’s only to keep people coming back so that the people they trick get deeper and deeper involved in the wrong things.  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).  I have found that it is one tradition to perform certain rituals that assign specific ancestral spirits to act as spirit guides.  These 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.  I have written a specific prayer to break those ungodly alliances and demonic attachments that leave open doors to curses.


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 and this day I divorce the enemy, Satan, and all other false gods and religions.

I renounce and divorce the enemy, Satan, and any evil spirit that may have been called into my life.  I renounce the spirits of Santeria, Lucumi, African gods and all familiar spirits associated with rituals, prayers, customs and traditions.  I renounce the seven African spirits known as Papa Legba, Obtala, Oya, Oshun, Chango, Ogun and Yemmaya, in the name of Jesus Christ.

I renounce all Loas, mediums and familiar spirits, ungodly priests, priestesses, sorcerers and wizards.

I renounce fear, self-will, lust, control and confusion.  I break every ungodly covenant, oath and vow that may have been spoken by myself or any of my ancestors, knowing that this is forbidden by Your word.  LORD Jesus, please let me be released from any ungodly alliances, covenants, or legally binding treaties that were enacted between me, my family, and demonic spirits.

I renounce African and cultural witchcraft, Yoruba traditions, shamans, witch doctors, their rituals and voodoo that have been practiced by my ancestors.  I want nothing to do with those practices, rituals, and traditions and I renounce them all, in Jesus name.

I renounce divination and conjuring of all familiar spirits of the dead and those that my ancestors and family members have participated in.  I renounce all soul ties to familiar and familial protectors, spirit guides, scribes and messengers, diviners and ungodly priests, false fathers and mothers, and those known as babalawo.

I renounce all inanimate objects used for divining purposes, including casting of chains. LORD Jesus, I ask that You break every ungodly chain that has tied me to these things that I am now renouncing.

I renounce all animal and material sacrifices made on my behalf or those in my family line.  I renounce all human involvement for the sake of divining information, the use of familiar spirits, spirit guides, and false gods.  I renounce all blood that was shed from any source that was tied to my life through the use of occult practices.  I renounce all herbalists and root workers that concocted medicines, potions, magic and incantations used in ayajo.

I repent and renounce any participation of myself or those in my family line in the indoctrination, apprenticeship, spiritual journey, rituals or rites of passage of myself or others into occult practices.

I renounce all lying, devious, deceptive and manipulative spirits that were inherited as a curse.

I renounce the spirit of fear, suspicion, rejection, loneliness, inferiority, insecurity, poverty, death and hell that have come into my life.

I renounce the spirit of abandonment, unloving spirits, guilt and condemnation.

I renounce all spirits of infirmity.

* * * * *

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:

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/n 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.  In Jesus name, Amen.

Breaking Ancestral African Witchcraft — 5 Comments

  1. Blessings,
    Not only does ancestral African witchcraft need to be broken off of the people, but freemasonry, Kabbalah, and Wicca as well. Many are using the star of Repham and the star on the Israeli flag to summon up ancient spirits of Babylon to connect the above and below. These changers and necromancers are trying to connect with the false tree of life or the Kabbalah to produce a oneness of demonic unity and energy. As I have stated before, this is avery dangerous mixing of the Kabbalah and Christianity. This is not true Zionism at all but the doctrine of Lucifer. This is the Luciferian age that we have suddenly embarked upon but we better repent and turn away from this wickedness before The Lord pours out the wrath and judgement of God on the house of God. Let us get our houses in order before its too late!!!!

  2. Dear Sister Laura my name is Alma Luz which means Alma (soul,spirit) Luz (light) I´ve been a christian since my childhood by my own decision. I am not catholic nor evangelical but I honestly believe in G___d, Jesus and the Holy Spirit…….Now I have this question what is Kabbalah.  In my country Republic of Panama is increasing the worshippers of this practice which I know is demonic, specially among people with a good financial status.  I will like to hear your opinion and knowledge of this practice.  I also will like to thank you for all your teachings that I enjoyed each word and scriptures.  I hope to hear from you soon.  May the Lord bless you and your Ministry….My apologies for my english……

  3. Dear Sister Laura, I’m from South-South of Nigeria in Africa. I have been a Christian-a born again Christian for many years but I’ve not seen any progress in my Christian walk, business or marriage. In fact, I divorced and remarried. I’m seriously contemplating another divorce. I’m so poor! My prayers are not answered. I’m easily offended, angry, cursing, lustful, fearful and deceitful. I have lots of nightmares and spiritual attacks. Before I became born again, I and all my family members were members(many are still members) of THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE CROSS AND STAR- a group that claims their leader-(now dead) to be the Holy Spirit. My parents and step mothers (my father married 5 wives, divorced 2 and kept 3 till he died) were into witchcraft. Some of my siblings are into witchcraft too. My wife gave birth to our daughter 16years ago. Till now we’ve not gotten another child. Even this our daughter has a bent spine. PLEASE PRAY FOR US. LET GOD SHOW US HIS MERCY. MAY HE REVEAL TO YOU THE SOURCE AND THE CAUSE OF OUR PROBLEMS IN JESUS NAME.

    • please my brother Joshua dont give up goggle http://www.firespringsministries for Elisha Goodman you will not regret the rest of yourlife, dont divorce your wife yet please, give God time with time He makes everything beautiful.
