Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us… (Galatians 3:13 NKJV)
I lost my mother to the streets at age eleven and my father was incarcerated my entire childhood, so growing up I always dreamed of family structure. I promised myself that I would do it right. I was going to finish college, get married, buy a house and then have a baby. I had it all planned out! So in August of 2005 my heart sank because at age fifteen I had to tell my grandmother that I was pregnant. After my boyfriend told me that he didn’t care about the pregnancy and visions of my future began swirling down the drain, I came to the conclusion that I was too young and made my decision to follow through with an abortion. At that time, I had no idea that I was perpetuating an already cursed womb…
“Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” says the Lord. “Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?” says your God. (Isaiah 66:9 NKJV)
Three years later my husband and I found out that we were pregnant. My husband was so excited; I wasn’t too thrilled but surely made the decision to follow through with the pregnancy. As we went to several doctor’s appointments, heard the baby’s heartbeat, and felt movement, we truly began to fall in love with our unborn child. Five months into my pregnancy, my child had everything needed: strollers, bottles, clothes, blankets, toys, cases of diapers and two loving parents. My husband and I were preparing for our little one. Twenty-five weeks into my pregnancy I began to feel extreme pain. My water broke and I was rushed to the hospital. I was in labor. “Push, push!” is all I could hear the doctor say. The harder I pushed, the more my son crawled upward into my chest; he did not want to come out. After fifteen hours of labor I gave birth to a 2lb fetus. As he lay in the incubator crying, my soul ached as a mother because I could not save him. An hour later he died.
Seven months later my husband and I found out that we were pregnant again. That time around I took extra precautions. Because I was diagnosed as a high risk pregnancy, I was scheduled to meet with my doctor weekly. I took a leave of absence from work to stay off of my feet and tried to eat very healthy foods. The doctor informed me that I would have to undergo a procedure called a cervical cerclage to ensure that the fetus would survive the full 40 weeks. The night before my surgery I lost the second baby the exact way I did the first.
That was not the first incident of miscarriage within my family. My grandmother miscarried twice before her first child lived (who was my mother). My mother miscarried three times before her first child lived (me). My aunt miscarried five times, twice before her first born and three times after her second child. “..They shall bear no fruit: yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb.” (Hosea 9:16 KJV)
When I aborted the first pregnancy, I left a spirit of death to dwell in my womb. That spirit has been alive in dwelling in the wombs of women in my family for generations! When I asked the women in my family had they ever tried to fight this, they all replied that they never viewed it as a curse. Indeed this is a deep rooted generational curse that I fed and then later tried to fight in the natural. I stand in the gap for my unborn child and the many generations to come TODAY. I am not cleaving to this thing! And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers. (Deuteronomy 13:17 KJV)
My two sons could have not been birthed from a cursed womb (at the time I was not aware of this spirit). This spirit had to be cast out because if not I would have passed on the curse to my children. I have power over the devil and I refuse to allow his demons to live happily within my bloodline!
Say this prayer ALOUD:
My soul cries out You! Thank You for your mercy! Thank You for the blood that You shed. This spirit has been hiding and overlooked by many in my family but I thank You for my experiences that help open my eyes to this thing. Show me the root of this curse that I may pull it up in name of Jesus! I praise You for giving me the power to bind up this demon and send it back to pit of hell from which it came! And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him (Revelation 22:3) Lord, I thank You in advance for lifting the curse. I command the spirit of ______ to leave my bloodline right now! Thank You for healing me and placing Your spirit within me, that my children and generations to come will never experience this thing again. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
