Whether you work in a competitive environment, or you have a coworker who just seems to be against you at every turn, you can pray to God to protect you from negativity and malice at your job. Here are 10 strong prayers for protection from enemies at work.
Strong Prayer for Protection from Enemies at Work
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.
Prayer for Guidance at Navigating Conflict
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.
Prayer for a Toxic Workplace
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.
Prayer for Wisdom in Dealing with Toxic People
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.
Prayer for Courage to Speak Out
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.
Prayer for the Courage to Stand Up for Myself
O Lord, Mighty in Power, I have had enough. I cannot bear being trampled on like I am nothing. I know that I must speak up and stand up for myself, but I lack the courage to do so. Lord, give me strength and courage. Allow me to boldly confront my workplace oppressors, so that I can make the best of my situation. Amen.
Prayer for Hope That Things Will Improve
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.
Prayer to Trust God’s Timing
God of Enduring Faithfulness, You proclaim to us that Your ways are not our ways. You open doors and close doors according to Your purpose. It is all in Your timing. This is very hard for me, as I crave control over all things. Father, allow me to trust in Your timing with my workplace decisions. Do not allow me to lean on my understanding but allow me the confidence to trust in Your plan. Amen.
Prayer for Faith While in a Toxic Job
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.
Prayer for Peace of Mind
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.
