Prayer For Haters

Great God, high and lifted up, I want to be in a close, intimate relationship with You today so that I can participate in the will that You have for my life today. Help me to recognize the enemy when he comes and to resist the urge to drift from Your precepts and laws. I know that if I have unconfessed sing that my fellowship with You can be harmed and so help me to be led by the Spirit of God and do what is pleasing in Your sight and care not about what the world thinks of the way I live. I want to have Christ be seen in me, not the enemy or carnal side of my nature. I know my heart's deceitful and wicked (Jer 17:9) so help me to recognize when I am doing things that are not pleasing to You and in the name of the King of kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ, I pray, amen.

You tell me, Father, that if I submit to You, the Devil must flee (James 4:7) but sometimes I know I don't submit to You and I realized that this leaves a door open for the enemy. When I am not submitting to You Father, I am submitting to my own flesh, the world, or to the Devil or his demons. I know it's Your will to have me resist temptation and that by doing so, I can avoid giving in to that temptation and so please, I pray, protect me from the evil influences today that will most certainly come my way today and to understand that anything that doesn't feel right might be a lie from the father of lies, Satan and so I am praying to help me resist temptation so that I might not sin and live a life that glorifies You and in Jesus beloved and most precious name I pray, amen.

`Lord, my Father, it seems that Satan and his demons are turning up the heat these days. When things start to fall apart, please remind me to persevere and to have persistence in resisting the devil so that he and his minions will flee from me (James 4:7) but I know that he can use other people to do his dirty work. They don't even know that he does this, God (2nd Cor 4:3-4) but You have revealed this dangerous, invisible enemy so I ask You to help me persist in doing what is pleasing to You and to resist in doing anything contrary to Your will and in Jesus' mighty name I pray, amen.

Lord God, please hear my prayer and my prayer is this; I want to have a close, personal relationship with You throughout the day so that I can remember that it is You that I really work for and not my employer (Col 3:23-24) and to help me resist the temptation from my own flesh and from the enemy to not do the work I am paid to do and so help me to focus on doing the best that I can during my day today so that my work can reflect what You desire in me and that is to whatever I do, give it all that I can (Eccl 9:10), even when no one's looking, I know You are and for the glory of the name in which I pray, Jesus Christ, amen.

Righteous Father in heaven, I know that there is a dark force out there that is opposed to You and to me. It is an invisible enemy who make try to discourage us or use others to do the same. Please help me to recognize when I'm under spiritual attacks so that I can be prepared to use the armor that You have provided for me and I also ask for Your protection for my family and from those in the local body of Christ. It seems that the world is growing more wicked every day and is a lot like Noah's day when all they thought about was doing evil (Gen 6:5). It is getting harder every day Lord to live for You so help me to resist the temptation to compromise and to stand firm on what I know is true and in the glorious name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.

Great God, my Father, I need to learn to trust in You and rely on You in everything, including when the fiery darts of the enemy come flying my way. I know that you never forsake us (Heb 13:5) and that I can confidently say that You are my helper and so I will not fear what any man can do to me (Heb 13:6) but the invisible enemy is much harder to deal with God. Please help me to be grounded in Your Word and don't rely on my own strength but rely on You, the Solid Rock of my salvation through Jesus Christ my Lord in whose name I pray, amen.

Thank you , Lord, for allowing me to experience your very presence this day. Give me a portion of your enabling ability that will prevent me from being sensitive to the negative influences of other people. Show me how to walk and show me how to talk when I am in the midst of haters. I will not pay attention to their faces , nor will I be moved by their negative comments. I WILL lift up mine eyes unto YOU. I WILL keep my mind stayed on thee. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Lord Jesus, following Your example and command, we pray for our enemies today. We ask first that You would saturate our lives with the Holy Spirit's power and might. Send Your love flowing through us, and forgive us for holding on to anything that could hinder our prayers. We release any unforgiveness, thoughts of revenge, or hateful emotions that can quench Your Spirit in our hearts. Then give us wisdom as we seek how to bless, to love, and to pray for our enemies.

We pray for you to bless our enemies and to orchestrate events in their lives that will leave their hearts exposed before you. As You characterized blessing in the Beatitudes, we pray that You would give them a poverty of spirit that recognizes their deep need for You. We pray they will discover Your comfort in times of mourning, and they would be humbled before Youin Your way and Your time. We pray You would show them mercy before it is too lateknowing we were all God's enemies before You extended mercy to usand that they would, in turn, be merciful to others.

Lord, we pray that instead of lusting for pure evil, they would hunger and thirst for Your purity and righteousness, become advocates of Your justice and that their warring spirits would be changed into peacemaking. Remove the faade of well-being; tear down the lies that have deceived them; and hedge their ways until they can see no way out but up. We pray You would show them the futility of what they are doing because in opposing God's kingdom and in their darkness, they are often oblivious about the true reasons for their behavior and resulting consequences. Reveal to them any deep hurts or traumas in their own lives that may be contributing to their destructive actions.

Knowing how you sometimes use pain and difficulty to bring blessing to our lives, we pray the same for our enemies. Use whatever means You need to soften stony hearts, open blind eyes, and to help them realize their ultimate neediness for You. If necessary, allow persecution in their own lives so they can experience Your blessing. Speak to them in miraculous, supernatural ways if necessary, through a dream, a movie, another believer, Your Wordor even through our own lives if we are ever confronted. In some way, let them witness Your power and recognize that You are the source. We pray for conviction, for an honest evaluation of their own destiny, and for a sense of desperation if that's what it takes for them to consider Your claims and to discover Who You really are. Pursue them, even allowing goodness to lead them to repentance. And give us patience and a deep trust in You, Lord, even when we can't see any change in our enemies. When we waver, not wanting to pray for our enemies, help us to remember Your grace in our own lives, and what we would be without You.
