To Break the Curse of Abuse

I receive and confess that Jesus is my Lord, and I ask that Your will be done in my life.
Father, You have delivered me from the dominion of darkness and have transferred (brought) me into the Kingdom of the Son of Your love. Once I was darkness, but now I am light in You; I walk as a child of Light. The abuse is exposed and reproved by the Light—it is made visible and clear; and where everything is visible and clear, there is light.
Help me to grow in grace (undeserved favor, spiritual strength) and recognition and knowledge and understanding of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, so that I may experience Your love and trust You to be a Father to me.
The history of my earthly family is filled with abusive behavior, much hatred, strife, and rage. The painful memory of past abuse (verbal, emotional, physical, and/or sexual) has caused me to be hostile and abusive to others.
I desire to be a doer of the Word and not a hearer only. No matter which way I turn, I can’t make myself do right. I want to, but I can’t. When I want to do good, I don’t; and when I try not to do wrong, I do it anyway. It seems that sin still has me in its evil grasp. This pain has caused me to hurt others and myself. In my mind I want to be Your willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin.
I confess my sin of abuse, resentment, and hostility toward others, and I ask You to forgive me. You are faithful and just to forgive my sin and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. I am tired of reliving the past in my present life, perpetuating the generational curse of anger and abuse.
Jesus was made a curse for me; therefore, Lord, I put on Your whole armor that I may be able to successfully stand against all the strategies and the tricks of the devil. I thank You that the evil power of abuse is broken, overthrown, and cast down. I submit myself to You and resist the devil. The need to hurt others no longer controls my family or me.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
