We not only pray, but become an example to our families as we exchange wrong, ungodly thinking for God’s thoughts. Our families, environment, educators both at school and church shaped our thought patterns. These thought patterns (positive or negative) control our relationships and behavior. God has given us spiritual weapons for the destruction of wrong thinking: theories, reasonings, religion, metaphysics and doctrines contrary to God’s Word. Let it begin with you.

In the name of Jesus, we tear down, demolish, annihilate, crush and smash wrong strongholds (thought patterns) handed down to us from our forefathers. We capture and bring into obedience mindsets that are in opposition to the Word of God. Forgive us for exalting our family culture, customs and traditions above the Word of God, and loving the world more than we love You. Forgive us for being stiff-necked, stubborn and rebellious, and insisting on having our own way. We repent of and renounce selfishness and self-centeredness. Father, we thank You for loving us, and for cleansing us from all unrighteousness in the name of Jesus, the Son of God. Amen.
