And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, the he said, escape for thy life, look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain, lest thou be consumed – Genesis 19:17. But his wife (Lot’s wife) looked back from behind him and she became a pillar of salt – Genesis 19:26. (King James version).

The angels gave instructions to Lot and his family when they were about to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. The first instruction they gave them was to leave the city immediately. Followed by another in which they were instructed not to look back but Lot’s wife looked back because her mind was still there. The bible says, For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also – Matthew 6:21. When we keep looking back, we are not ready to move forward because what is gone is gone no matter how good it might be. Forward ever and backward never.

Our focus should always be forward. The angels gave them the instruction because whatever they left behind is gone forever but Lot’s wife still have her focus on those things. The bible says, Let thine eyes look right on and let thine eyelids look straight before thee – Proverbs 4:25. The bible did not say look straight behind thee. Most times we don’t even know that we are looking back. It is good to remember the past but don’t dwell and focus on the past because our destiny is right in front of us. Which area of your life have you been looking back? Could it be the blessings you have received, could it be words that someome has spoken to you, could it be God’s promises, could it be past failures, could it be past errors and mistakes and is making you not to trust anyone again? Keep moving forward because you have much more good things ahead of you.

Apostole Paul says, I count not myself to have apprehended, but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forth unto those things which are before. I press forward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus – Philippians 3:13-14. Looking back can bring delay, it can bring destraction, it can make you loose focus, it can bring discouragement, it can bring anger etc. Therefore let your focus be in front of you.

Now to the prayers:

  1. Any power, spirit or personality making me to focus on my past instead of moving forward, receive fire in the name of Jesus christ.
  2. Any situation making me to retrogress, loose your power and fail woefully in the name of Jesus Christ.
  3. Any covenant I might have entered knowingly or unknowingly that is depriving me from moving forward, break in the name of Jesus Christ.
  4. Any family idol that is making every member of my family to be stagnant, scatter by fire in the name of Jesus Christ.
  5. Any line of limitation that is limiting every member of my family, be erased by the blood of Jesus christ.
  6. Any boundary that has been set that no one can cross in my family, I will cross and surpass it in the name of Jesus christ.
  7. Wall of Jericho limiting people in my ancestry, crash now in the name of Jesus Christ.
  8. Generational sickness going from generation to generation in my ancestry, I am not your portion in the name of Jesus christ.
  9. Evil altar erected to stop the destiny of every member of my family, scatter in the name of Jesus christ.
  10. Every mark, seal or stamp of failure given to my family, be erased by the blood of Jesus Christ.
  11. Thanbk you lord for answered prayers in the name of Jesus christ.
