A Prayer for Wisdom to Rightfully Rebuke
God of Heaven’s Armies, You are my strength and my refuge. When I am attacked by enemies, I need to courageously stand in righteous rebuke against those who would attack me. You have not given me a spirit of fear and timidity but of power and a sound mind. Lord, empower me to stand up for myself and others. Let me imitate the courage Joshua had as he led the Israelites to the promised land. But even more, let me ground myself in my worth in You. In the powerful name of Jesus. Amen.
A Prayer to Respond in Love
God, my Fortress, You are infinitely loving. I am in trouble, O God, I am surrounded by those who hate me and seek evil for me. Tempting me to seek revenge, they continue their unjustified attacks day and night. Yet I look to You, You who sent Your Son to suffer and die at the hands of His enemies and still forgiving them. I need Your love. If I have been forgiven by You, how can I withhold forgiveness now? Give me strength. Amen.
A Prayer for Enemies to Make Peace
All-Powerful Father, Your roads are the righteous way and I seek to follow You. I do not understand why I am attacked again and again by enemies. I need shelter from You. As Your Word says, may You take pleasure in my ways and cause them to make peace. You can change their hearts and minds and bring peace between them and me. I pray for this in the name of the Prince of Peace, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
A Prayer for Enemies to Realize Their Wrongfulness
Jesus, my Savior, You are righteous and holy. Day by day, I am under attack by enemies who wrongfully harass me. Strengthen me to live in such a way that these people who attack me realize how wrong their actions are. May they leave me alone. Bring them to repentance and change of heart. Give me endurance and act with integrity to stand tall even when I am maligned. I need You to produce these qualities within me. In Jesus’ mighty name, I pray. Amen.
A Prayer for Enemies to Leave and for Me to Rest in Comfort from God
Almighty and Everlasting God, I trust in You always. In times of strife, hide me in Your wings and shield me from my enemies. Cause my enemies to run from me. You are my fortress and my walled city – I flee to You. Defending me from those who seek evil, You are the one in whom I take delight. When enemies seek my destruction, You frustrate their plans. Like a still pond or peaceful garden, so my soul rests knowing You are my Father. In You, I trust my life forever. Amen.
