Prayer For Those Who Mistreat and Persecute You

PATREON SUPPORTERS Log-in here to remove ads

We all experience times in our lives when we are persecuted by our family members, friends, colleagues, bosses, and others. Even though this persecution may persist for a long time, instead of retaliating as they expect and want you to, take it to the Lord in prayer.

Let the Lord fight your battles for you. This prayer can be used daily as you surrender all to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

The Challenge Of Loving The Unlovable

Lord Jesus, it is indeed a high calling, the mandate to love those who seem to stand against me, who cause pain, and who seem to relish in my suffering. In my flesh, I am weak, often filled with anger, resentment, and the longing for justice.

But I’m reminded of Your words and Your life, which demonstrated a love so profound that even in the midst of anguish, You prayed for those who crucified You.

I desire to walk in Your footsteps, dear Lord. But to be candid, the journey is daunting. My heart rebels at the idea of loving those who mistreat and persecute me.

Yet, I understand that this is the way to true freedom, true peace, and a deeper manifestation of Your grace in my life. Grant me the strength and the heart to genuinely love and pray for those who seem to be my enemies.

Matthew 5:44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

Romans 12:14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

Praying For Those Who Persecute You

Dear God, the Alpha and the Omega, I thank you for being by my side when, for no reason, they persecute me. Lord, it hurts so much when I am abused, accused and condemned. They bring all manner of falsehoods against me.

But in the midst of it all, I know that you will preserve me. I will arise stronger and better because you are on my side.

No weapon formed against me shall prosper. You, Lord, are all-powerful and almighty. And despite the situation I’m in, I place my trust in you. All things work for good for those that love the Lord, are your assuring words.

Continually speak your assurances into my heart and fill me with your peace that passes all understanding. For Lord, I cry out to you today! Nothing is too difficult for you.

Leviticus 19:18 Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against a fellow Israelite, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.

Romans 12:14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

The Power Of Forgiveness

Lord Jesus, the act of forgiveness is truly divine. In my own strength, I find it near impossible to release the hurts, the betrayals, and the injustices.

Yet, I am reminded of the cross, where You bore the weight of the world’s sin and chose to forgive. Grant me the grace to forgive as You have forgiven.

I declare that with Your help, the chains of bitterness and vengeance that may seek to bind my heart will be broken. I choose to forgive those who mistreat and persecute me.

I release them into Your hands, knowing that vengeance belongs to You and that Your justice is perfect. As I walk in forgiveness, let my life be a testimony of Your transformative power and grace.

Colossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

Ephesians 4:32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Release The Burden When Persecuted

Sometimes it’s so hard, it’s a struggle to cope. But I use this opportunity now to release this burden unto you, oh Lord. Take me and carry me in your arms. Bring me through it all safely.

Pay attention to my prayer, for my enemies insult me all day, and they use my name for a curse word. But I choose to stand in your glory. I will not be moved!

Luke 6:27-28 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”

Proverbs 24:29 Do not say, “I’ll do to them as they have done to me; I’ll pay them back for what they did.

For All Who Are Persecuted, The Lord Brings Justice

Your word says that for all who are persecuted, the Lord brings justice. But Heavenly Father, please forgive them, because they truly do not understand what they are doing, and they don’t know what it is to be a child of the Living God.

Don’t let your wrath fall upon them. Despite what they attempt to do to me, Lord, bring them back one day in repentance for their evil.

As you did with Joseph, lift me up on high. In the meanwhile, shield my thoughts with your peace, comfort my soul with your love. Dry my tears. I praise and thank you for everything, in Jesus’ name, AMEN!

Romans 12:14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

Romans 12:19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.

  2. We have been neighbors for at least twenty years. The problem is that my husband Needed to repair the shed. our neighbor decided to have these large metal Poles installed so flowers will grow do she won’t see our shed. These poles are near our property and now she won’t remove them.
    So we can’t fix the shed. After i spoke to her she said why not just repair it from the inside. It needs to be raised up as its sinking to far in the ground. My husband has helped her numerous times for free to help things around the house after her husband left her. We used to spend holidays together and everything but now that’s all ended. She claims she’s a christian but her actions do not follow through. She allows drugs and alcohol constantly on her property. Not just a beer or two here but very strong drinks. We need prayer that she will change her heart and repent. And understand how badly we need to fix our shed. I also pray that we get the boundaries retested. And there won’t be any problems in us doing us! Her name. Also prayer needed to help us remove the hurt we feel after this friendship died.
