Preparation for the Conference Call

You are invited to write down the names of anyone in your family trees whom you identify as:

- those who died a violent or sudden death; 

- any who committed suicide;

- those who died in childbirth or

- infant death.

Include any who were aborted in their family line and if you are able to give such children a name.


Generational Healing is an opportunity to explore your family stories and their living legacies and where possible to celebrate the good gifts you have from them as well as find healing for family wounds that still have power or control in our lives. We can do this because Jesus has gone before us and as the resurrection and the life He can bring deliverance and renewal to our generational wounds.

Some times the problems or dysfunctions we battle with do not start with us but may have their origins in our family tree, in wounds or wounded spirits that have repeated themselves through the generations. Generational Healing explores these legacies and offers a way of healing based on a simple and astounding truth about Jesus. He has access to the dead! He said that he was not the God of the dead but the God of the living and mentions Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as examples(cf Matthew 22v31+32). What this means is that for Jesus nobody is dead! He spoke to Lazarus in his grave and the dead heard his voice. Consequently we can bring to Jesus the stories and issues that need healing from our family’s past and he can go there and bring release to the departed as well as to the living.
