Your sins may have been dealt with through the blood of Jesus but have you asked God to forgive you for the sins of the fathers? God is a jealous God. He is merciful but also full of wrath. He said, “I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me (Deuteronomy 5:9). There are sins of the fathers with consequences which have been passed down from generation to generation. Because nobody is yet to ask God for the forgiveness of those sins, you may be suffering from the consequences of those sinful actions.
How do I know I am dealing with the sins of the fathers?
- You may experience sudden negative turn of events in your lifestyle contrary to your Christian walk
- You may be suffering from long-term issues
- You may have noticed certain traits and negative trends in the family
Prayer of forgiveness for the sins of the fathers
Dear God, You are a jealous God yet full of mercy and loving-kindness
You visit the sins of the fathers on the children, even to the third and fourth generation.
Please forgive me of the sins of my fathers passed on to my generation
Cut off the flow of sin and its consequences linked to my generation.
Forgive the sin of hatred, idolatry, adultery and wickedness of my fathers against you.
Cleanse me from all the blood guilt and consequences of the actions of my forefathers
Create in me a new heart to do right with you and others on earth
And help me to live right with you henceforth
I pray in Jesus name. Amen.
