Prayer For Protection From Enemies

Lord Jesus, my Precious Savior, it is not easy dealing with toxic people. They are as cunning as snakes and often seek to betray You. Therefore, I ask that You give me the wisdom that it takes to interact with these kinds of people. Help me to walk with grace and humility, not out of pride, but in legitimate concern for their salvation. Help me to have a genuine love for them, no matter how they feel about me. In Your holy name. Amen.

My Righteous God, conflict is inevitable. This is even truer in the workplace where so much is at stake, and competition can be fierce. Tempers are sure to flare and people will blow up on each other. In the inevitable event that I run into conflict, let me handle it with grace and compassion. Give me the wisdom to navigate it in a way that honors You and keeps me free from sin. Lord, in Your mercy, hear my prayer. Amen.

Lord God of Heaven's Armies, the workplace can be a vicious place. People rise against one another in a cut-throat environment. People fall over themselves to get ahead without regard to anyone else. Lord, amid such a hostile place, I ask that You watch over me. Keep me safe and secure, out of the reach of those who would do me harm. Amen.

Sovereign Lord, as much as it hurts me to say it, I dread going into work each day. The culture at work has become a cesspool. Departments are full of toxic people, who care for nothing but themselves. It is very hard to get through each day without tears. Father, help me to work in such a place. Wherever possible, use me as a means to make the place better. Give me opportunities to influence others and share Your love with them, so that the workplace might be transformed into something that is honoring to You. Amen.

Lord God, there is so much that is on the line while at work. It can be very confusing, as I must measure ethics against my ability to provide for myself and my family. In light of this tension, I approach Your throne to beg of Your courage to speak up when I see things that need to be addressed. Let me not fear retaliation, but only fear You. Whatever happens, I only ask that You continue to provide in Your good timing, through Christ, my Lord. Amen.

Father, my Miracle-Worker, I have been at this job for so long, and each day seems the same. There is nothing new under the sun. The same problems are still here. There are even worse now than when I first started. Yet, I know that with You there is always hope. You can transform any situation, and I ask for You to give me hope that You will do so hear. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.

O God, my Strength, seeing the way people treat each other at work is so taxing. It is a rat race, where people gladly destroy one another to get ahead in the game. I want nothing to do with this soulless approach to work, and I ask that You not allow me to be sucked into it. Help me fight the good fight of faith. Strengthen my resolve to resist temptations to participate in such things. Amen.

Lord Jesus, my Refuge, every day I sit here at work and do the same thing. I feel so insignificant and burned out. I don't think I am making any difference or helping anyone. Yet, I know that You use people in the most unexpected ways. There is a purpose for why You still want me to work here, so I ask that You give me peace of mind to accept this and make the best of it. In Your compassionate name, I pray. Amen.
