Prayer to Deal with What is Behind your Name
“And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coasts, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested, “(1 Chronicles 4:9–10).
“As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram , but thy name shall be called Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee, “( Genesis 17:4–6).
Names are very significant. The names you bear, whether the ones given to you or your family names, can affect your life positively or negatively.
Your name is your social and spiritual identity. Every name carries a positive or a negative anointing. The anointing on your name is triggered off each time that name calls you. Behind each name, a spirit or demon is enforcing the covenant behind it. Keeping watch over the seal on your name so that it may not be broken or tampered with. Your name goes a long way in determining your destiny. Names that glorify satanic deities, idol worship, and devilish tradition provoke God and bring His wrath on the bearer. People give names according to their beliefs and practices.
Names are an expression of our faith. When one is named after the Lord, it is like putting a stamp of God on the child. In the same way, when you are given names associated with the family or community idols. Therefore, you are attached to the spirits of these idols, and no evil spirit has a good plan for its patrons and their generations. Find out the meaning of your names and as a piece of advice, change immediately any name glorifying an idol or the devil. Renounce the spirits behind the name, and revoke all the demonic covenants attached to these names.
What To Do?
Find out the meaning of those names and why the names were given.
Anoint your forehead and navel as you break off the power behind your former names. (navel — entry point in the Spirit for generational demons)
