Covenant Curse Prayer

The 7 Plagues of Moses to the Egyptians
  1. Water turned into blood
  2. Frogs followed by piles of dead frogs
  3. Gnats, flies, lice
  4. Flies (or biting/stinging insects)
  5. Pestilence
  6. Boils (inflammation of skin)
  7. Hail (which killed people by falling on them)
  8. Locusts

A "covenant curse" is referred to in the Old Testament. What this is is God's promise to those who call upon His Name to punish those who do evil to His Children. This is an ancient promise God made. He protects those who, repenting of their own sins, turn to Him.

He promises to destroy those who think they have a claim over those people who call upon His Name. "Brothers and sisters: Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy that person, for the temple of God, which you are, is holy." 1 Cor 3:16-7 [ ]

Scripture can be turned into a prayer to God to curse those who refuse to give up their claim over another person. This is especially useful in battling occult or demonic claims or curses; such claims were used by the ancient Egyptians over the Hebrews. It can also be used to battle someone who has developed a supernatural or demonic claim over another person through their hatred, arrogance or sexual desire.

The following wording is an originally written covenant curse against those who refuse to give up claim over another person. It is wording borrowed from a few of the curses that Moses unleashed upon the Egyptians.

The plagues specifically used against the Egyptians were meant to blaspheme the ancient Egyptian gods. For example, frogs, flies, gnats, all were considered offensive creatures to specific gods. Therefore these animals were chosen to plague the Egyptians to mock their pagan gods and to insult the Egyptians, thus affirming the God of Israel as the God above gods, the one true God.

While specifically frogs, gnats, flies, or hail may not rain down on those you pray this prayer against, an equivalent (usually internal, spiritual, supernatural equivalent) for that specific person will happen.

It is of the utmost importance, above all things to remember, that this curse is not like an occult curse. In occult curses, the person believes that he or she is unleashing the curse, that it is his or her doing. This is not the case here! That is why it is more powerful. This is God doing the work. This is His curse that He wrote thousands and thousands of years ago, not our curse (it would effect us if we have hurt others and have not begun seeking Him sincerely, praying to Him in a way which pleases Him, or changed our ways and made restitution, for God does not give permission for anyone to sin). He protects us not because we are better than other people; we are not. We are all sinners. That is why this must not be prayed with hatred. God is not doing this because we are better but because He made a promise, a covenant, to assist those who call upon Him, revere His Holy Name, and submit to His Divine Will, whatever He chooses to happen.

"If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, his religion is vain." [ James 1 ]

Jesus severs quickly the ties between peoples when the ties are bad. He is the savior because He is the one who can open doors that will not open and close doors that no one can close, including those supernatural doors and ties between people, that ruin peoples' lives. 

We see that He is the one chosen to close and open when no one else can in the Book of Revelation:  "I shed many tears because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to examine it. One of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. The lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, has triumphed, enabling him to open the scroll with its seven seals.” Then I saw standing in the midst of the throne and the four living creatures and the elders, a Lamb that seemed to have been slain. ... He came and received the scroll from the right hand of the one who sat on the throne."

Revelation chapter 5 begins the opening of the scrolls, which can be read here. The plagues that come from opening the scrolls are those to get justice for the wrongs in the world and to get vengeance for those who were slain and persecuted for their witness to God, ie punished for turning away from or battling the occult and demonic. Similar to the plagues unleashed upon the Egyptians.

So we must not think this is us as work, but the Hand of God at work. And when we thank Him for freeing us when our oppression is over, as we must do for the rest of our lives (for how many lives are ruined forever because they did not know to call upon God?), we must think that He has aided us because we have called upon His Name and He has found us worth helping; which He found us not because of our own virtue (because we have none), but because He is infinitely merciful.

We must also pray that neither we nor our enemies go to Hell, for grave sins commit souls to Hell, even when the sins are committed against us: "Lord God, though they have sinned against You, You alone who created them, You Who is Eternal, and therefore have earned for themselves a punishment that is also Eternal, I beg You on the merits of Your Son, who died for miserable traitors, that we go not off to Eternal punishment where we belong! How merciful You will be extolled as being if You forgive both them and me who are so unworthy of forgiveness! I ask to unite their suffering to Your's, o Lord, and ask that they expiate their sins in this life that they might be spared eternal damnation!"

"The LORD said to Moses, 'Speak to the whole Israelite community and tell them: Be holy, for I, the LORD, your God, am holy. You shall not bear hatred for your brother or sister in your heart. Though you may have to reprove your fellow citizen, do not incur sin because of him [through anger, hatred, arguing]. Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against any of your people. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD." [ Leviticus chapter 19 ]

"Know this, my dear brothers and sisters: everyone should be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger, for anger does not accomplish the righteousness of God. Therefore, put away all filth and evil excess and humbly welcome the word that has been planted in you and is able to save your souls. Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deluding yourselves." [ James 1 ]

God wants us to be noble, not vengeful, angry, or full of revenge. [ Romans 12 ] Do not repay anyone evil for evil; be concerned for what is noble in the sight of all. If possible, on your part, live at peace with all. Beloved, do not look for revenge but leave room for the wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” Rather, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals upon his head." Do not be conquered by evil but conquer evil with good.

Whenever you think of this person during the day, after you have prayed this prayer, you must say over and over again in your mind, "I forgive [this person], I forgive [this person]." Forgiveness is not an emotion, it is an act of will. You must will to forgive this person. God will see your efforts to forgive. (Forgiveness is not reconciliation. Reconciliation is allowing this person back into your life. You must not do that if that person is very dangerous--emotionally, physically, spiritually, psychologically dangerous--or if this person is bad or evil.)

If you read the Depression post on BoldRadish, the spiritual healing section "Healing from Resentment of Traitors", we see that what others do to us is based on their relationship with God: “Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” [Matthew chapter 25] So when others hurt us, it is, in effect, because they are rebelling against God, in whose image and likeness we are made (read more in the post for further details). That is why revenge is in God's Hand. (This does not exclude legal proceedings or locking someone in jail so they can't hurt anyone else. But vengeance shouldn't be at heart when this is being done; justice and safety should be.)

We may also ask the Lord to bless those who support and love us, who encourage us and pray for us, and ask that His Will be done in both friends and enemies alike. Praying for these things, for the salvation of those who hurt us, is the act of forgiveness; praying the covenant curse is the act of praying for God's protection.

I prayed the following prayer every day for a little less than a month and it diminished those who had hurt me quite extensively, to the point where our connection was weakened and they were destroyed.  (It only draws upon a few of the curses in Exodus; still it was quite effective.) It is possible that I just saw them as destroyed for the first time, that they had already been punished by God before I asked them to be, for He seeks protection for those who rely completely and solely on Him. But saying this prayer allowed me to see how He was working. It is also possible that He acted only in response to my prayer to Him. Either way, this prayer benefitted me greatly. It is so powerful because it is based directly off of scripture, like the Hail Mary is or the Our Father is. (I prayed it in addition to other prayers, not alone. It is very short but very effective.)

☆ the covenant curse prayer 

"Then the LORD spoke to Moses: Early tomorrow morning present yourself to Pharaoh when he sets out toward the water, and say to him: Thus says the LORD: Let my people go to serve me. For if you do not let my people go, I will send swarms of flies upon you and your servants and your people and your houses. The houses of the Egyptians and the very ground on which they stand will be filled with swarms of flies."

Lord God, send swarms of suffocating flies to overwhelm my oppressors as long as they oppress me.

They hold me back from happiness and fulfillment.

Allow them no place to breathe as long as they oppress me.

As they afflict me, so that my oppressors could be constantly reminded by the pain of the bites and stings of these insects. May they have no rest. As I am humiliated by their treatment of me, so may they be soiled by insects, until I am no longer shamed.

Lord God, I spoke to my oppressors and they ignored my voice. They’re ignored me and would not listen, but continued to oppress me. Send upon them frogs in every room of the house, day and night, constantly chirping,  in every public square and every room where they work, that they may have no rest, no peace, and be constantly reminded of my cries that they silenced. May the stench of the piles of dead frogs rise fill up their noses that they may be afflicted and scorned by their neighbors and resentful of their condition. Until they cease to oppress me and rend me justice.

My oppressors deceive me and take away my light through their lies. They are like blows upon me. Let them know, show them, that the God of Israel protects His children who call on His Name. 
Rain down fierce hail. So fierce, they will die when the hail falls down on them, that will destroy their livelihood and their friends, those who belong to them, to separate them.

Put an unbreakable division between them and me.

Devastate them for their obstinance, in Jesus' Name. Make the distinction between them and Your people, Lord.

(7 plagues in revelation (which are the 7 plagues in exodus) : )
Who will not fear you, Lord,
or glorify your name?
For you alone are holy.
All the nations will come
and worship before you,
for your righteous acts have been revealed.

After this I had another vision. The temple that is the heavenly tent of testimony opened, and the seven angels with the seven plagues came out of the temple. They were dressed in clean white linen, with a gold sash around their chests.

One of the four living creatures gave the seven angels seven gold bowls filled with the fury of God, who lives forever and ever.

Then the temple became so filled with the smoke from God’s glory and might that no one could enter it until the seven plagues of the seven angels had been accomplished.

( from the prophet Nahum:)
At this moment on the mountains
the footsteps of one bearing good news,
of one announcing peace!
Celebrate your feasts, Judah,
fulfill your vows!
For never again will destroyers invade you;
they are completely cut off. ("Put an unbreakable division between them and me.”—from the prayer)
