Prayer to Overcome Jealousy and Envy

Heavenly Father, I give thanks and praise, blessed to be among those sanctified in Christ Jesus, and called to be saints together with all those who call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I thank you for Grace and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Wonderful Counselor, I bind that spirit of jealousy that’s attempting to consume my life. I curse it out completely in the name of Jesus, for it is more than cruelty and overwhelming fury. Remove it now, mighty God, along with the hatred, anger, fear and insecurities that fuel it.

James 3:16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.

Everlasting Father, I desire to be as holy as You are. Set me free of the thoughts that consume my mind which cause the jealousy to arise. Substitute the negativity and cruelty within my heart with Your peace and love, and gentle kindness.

Lord, substitute the negativity and cruelty in my heart with Your peace and love and kindness. Click To Tweet

James 4:2-3 You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. Yet, you do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.

Prince of Peace, help those who are struggling today. May they experience Your love and show love in return to all they come into contact with.

Help me to not be envious towards my neighbors and friends but rather to be happy for them and encourage them to go even further. Cleanse me of anything that breaks Your heart, oh Savior.

Help me live a righteous life, Heavenly Father. Because on this day I declare it, I decree it and speak it into my life, in JESUS’ mighty name, Amen!!!

James 3:14-15 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.

Proverbs 14:30 A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot.

Galatians 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

  1. Envy and jealousy have come into my life and heart. Help me dear Lord to accept my life as it is and not compare with others. Knowing and trusting that the Lord will deliver and forgive me of this sin and make me a better and thankful person. The Lord knows my purpose in this life I lead, help me to notice his blessings and be happy.

  2. With tears in my eyes, thank you for this prayer! I have struggled all my life with this. I try to do right, but it just seems like others that do not know christ as I do seem to reap the benefits. Sometimes I just don’t understand, but I have to learn.. that it is not for me to understand, for GOD understands.

    • Hi Holly,

      I remember a Pastor at my church, whose name is also Holly, she said that it always seems like the things we are waiting on, is the very things people around us are being blessed with. I agree with her, although I don’t understand, yet I think it’s a way of testing us to see if we can rejoice with those who rejoice, and mourn with those who mourn, versus being happy during someone’s trials and being sad when they are blessed. I been where you are, and still struggle, I pray we can overcome these “feelings” and send them back to where they came from. Peace & love your way.

  3. I sought this prayer due to my husband leaving. He had interest in other females. It cause jealousy & insecurity in my heart.

  4. Thank you so very much for this. Indeed a life saver.. May God’s love and peace continue to flow in us all to remove all traces of envy and jealous and insecurity

  5. Amen! Thank you Cheryce. God bless you
    Almighty Father
    Help me with envy for the right reasons
    If I should ever be, let it be with one more righteous
    But never let these bad feelings brew in me
    May my belonging in You overcome all these thoughts
    Amen!
