Reverse Word Curses in Your Children's Lives

June 2022

Life is in the blood.

And words carry life or death.

The connection between words and blood

can destroy our children in ways

we may not have considered. 

That the life of the body is in the blood is obvious. And regardless of circumstances, a child’s blood is half the mother's and half the father’s. There is no way to separate the parent’s bloodlines in the child. Our Creator was the first to present these truths. (See Gen. 2:24, Leviticus 17:11, Genesis 2:24, Mark 10:8, Matthew 19:5 and Ephesians 5:31.) Whatever affects the father’s or mother's life also affects the child. The child is the marriage of the two parents’ blood even if one or both parents are not alive or present.

Words are Life or Death

Life and death connect not only to blood but also to words. Words create life or they create death! Ask any psychologist, counselor, therapist or life coach. They all agree that words are so powerful that they create your world. And again, our Creator was the first to explain the creative power of our words.

He said, “What you say can preserve life or destroy it; so you must accept the consequences of your words.” (Proverbs 18:21 Good News Translation)

Another way of saying it:

The power of the tongue is life and death— those who love to talk will eat what it produces. (Proverbs 18:21 ISV)

In Isaiah 57:19 we learn that God creates what we say! (Read it for yourself! )

Words are so important that one day, each of us will give an account to God for every word we have ever spoken ...or written! (See Matthew 12:36)

Jesus said, “…the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” (See John 6:63)

Words are spirit and the spirit world can hear all words. My friend Lori's near-death experience proved to me that the spirit world hears all words. She is a ballet teacher with many long-term students. At one point Lori died during surgery and found herself walking on a dry, brown path. She didn’t know she was not in her body. As doctors worked to revive Lori, one of her students raced to the hospital, crying “Lori! Don’t you die! Lori, don’t you die!” Lori said she had no intention of turning back until she heard this student’s voice. Lori turned back towards the sound of her name and then re-entered her body in the hospital. Surely this is how Lazarus heard Jesus calling him back into his body in John 11:43. The spirit world hears words, and the words affect this natural world.

Another true story proves that words impart life or death on the earth.

I heard a woman tell her story of what she experienced while in a coma. When people came to visit her in the hospital, they did not know she could hear their words. Nurses documented that when visitors spoke as if she would get well, she would begin to get better. But when visitors spoke as if she would not get well, her condition would begin to worsen. She came out of the coma and testified that words can heal and impart life or words can curse and kill.

You might wonder, “What does this have to do with my children’s blood? I don’t speak evil words to or about my children.”

Here is what I’ve learned: What we speak to or about our child’s other parent, we have also spoken over and into our children. Why? Because the other parent’s blood is in the child. This is true regardless of the circumstance or any pain involved and whether the children hear the words or not. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. Words go forth as spirit into the bloodline of the parent into the child. The life is in the blood and the child’s life is an equal mixture of both parents’ bloodlines!

So, what can we do if we have spoken evil against our children’s father or mother? Is there hope? Yes!

Here is what we can do to begin to reverse the word curses:

We ask God’s forgiveness and decide not to do it again.

We ask for God's help to speak righteous words and not evil words.

We begin to counter any evil words with what God says in His Word. Evil words only reinforced the behavior we do not want to see in the parent! The Word of God is The Truth and it overrides every other word. We speak life into our children by speaking life into their parent(s).

Examples of Using Words to Speak Life

I heard the testimony of a wise father of a negative and discontented daughter. He began to continually refer to her as his “happy child.” He would hug her and ask, “How is my happy child doing today?” He introduced her to others as his happy child. Before long she began to see herself as happy and actually became his happiest child. Life and death are in the power of the tongue.

Another true story about the power of words has stuck with me through the years. A preacher with a rebellious daughter began to declare Isaiah 54:13 over her. That she “…is a disciple of Christ, taught of the Lord, and GREAT is her peace and undisturbed composure.” Months later, his daughter announced to him, “You know what, Daddy? I am a disciple of Christ, taught of the Lord, and GREAT is my peace and undisturbed composure!” Words are seeds. Seeds take time to grow, but they do produce a harvest. What have we spoken into our children’s lives through their parents’ bloodline? Do not worry but ask forgiveness and change your words and ways. We can counter the bad seed with the good seed of God’s Word.

This principle applies to every circumstance. God’s Word is stronger than any negative word or relationship or situation or condition. Let us speak life into our children by speaking life into their bloodline! We can read the Bible and speak out (as prayers) what God says about our children and their parents.

Also, two books I like to use to pray what God says are:

1. The Sword of the Spirit, The Word of God by Joy Lamb

2. Prayers that Avail Much by Germaine Copeland (Free PDF available online)

God’s Word does not return to Him void but accomplishes what He sent it to do. (See Isaiah 55:11) And God sent His Word to HEAL not only you but also those that have hurt you and your children. (See Psalm 107:20) Pray what God says and trust Him to keep His Word. He is faithful even when we are not. (See II Timothy 2:13) I pray that the Holy Spirit will direct your path as you consider what I have written.

(Neither you nor your children are to continue in or re-enter an abusive situation. But do speak and pray for and not against the other parent even if he or she continues to speak evil of you.)

Remember that we are praying for our children as we pray/speak God’s Word over their bloodline. We can reverse the curse in our families by replacing ours with the royal bloodline of the Son of God. And we can reverse the word curses by speaking the Word of God rather than our own words.

Father God, help us to use our words to heal and not crush, to lift others up and not shame them, to energize the dreams of others and not shatter them, and to love unconditionally the way You love us. I pray You will lead this dear reader into all the Truth about their situation. I ask you to heal every soul wound in each parent and each child. May the blood of your Son, Jesus, override all the natural bloodline in the entire family. Help this dear reader to understand that there is nothing too hard for You and to know Your love overshadows all our mistakes and grief.

In the name of Your Son, Jesus, so be it. Amen.
