Spiritual Warfare Prayers to Overcome Jealousy and Envy

Heavenly Father, I give thanks and praise. I’m 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.

Prayer to bind the spirit of jealousy

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. In Jesus mighty name, Amen.

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

Prayer to be set free from thoughts of jealousy

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. Amen.

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

Proverbs 27:4 Wrath is cruel, anger is overwhelming, but who can stand before jealousy?

Prayer to help control Emotions

Lord, our emotions have a major part to play in displaying our actions. We ask today that You help us to control them as they arise.

Anger, hate, jealousy, malice and pride will be replaced by Your warm and comforting love, peace, tranquility and compassion, as we step out today to execute acts of kindness towards one another. Amen.

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.

Prayer: Overcoming envy

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.

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.

  2. I had success in my career and I am blessed and don’t deserve it! But I feel insecure when I see others success! I compare myself to them and makes me feel weak and insecure about my abilities and that causes me to feel envy of them! I don’t do it on purpose it’s something that I struggle with! It bothers me inside my mind! I need deliverance! And I have fell so far away from God I feel like I have went to far he has cast me away to the sins of my life! I don’t know how to find my way back to him ! I am to far gone!

    • God has not forsaken you. Nor is He angry or disappointed in you. He loves you unconditionally, forever. Love is who He is, not what He does. His Grace, Jesus, covers you. When you ask Him to forgive you He does. Then you must forgive yourself. Satan is a liar and an accuser. He lies to you to make you think that it’s God. Reject his lies and say about yourself what God says about you! He loves you so much that He sent Jesus to die for you! Walk out of the condemnation of Satan who plays tricks with your mind. He did the same to Jesus. You are free, forgiven and loved. Move on!??

    • Hi Sarah, Jesus did not die for the righteous but individuals like you and I who don’t have all together. He said to come to Him in time of trouble and cast all your burdens on him. Just go boldly to His throne of mercy. Seek him and tell Him all about what you wrote here.

  9. I had no idea I was carrying around a deep seated spirit of envy and jealousy. I was completely blind. I had no idea that envy and jealousy fuel rage. You see, I was terribly abused in childhood and I have tremendous bottled up rage, but underneath that rage is envy and jealousy. Envy that others had it good when I had it bad. This seems warped, but its the truth for me, I was actually envious of the people who hurt me, because I thought they had power and I didnt. The more I learn about the Word, the more I am set free. Thank you for these prayers.

  10. I spent many years, Moaning about the things that I wanted, And did not get. There were times, I would compare my self with others, And I’ve allowed envy and jealousy to enter my heart, over the years. Today as a committed catholic, A reader of GODS word constant confessing of my sins, And asking the lord for forgiveness of all my sins, I now see life from different perspective. GOD has been with me, All along the road I have traveled, I was blessed all along, and did not know it until now, praise the mighty name of JESUS ????????

  11. Thank you for the powerful prayers and I pray for all evil to be cast away from me and all those who read this.
    I love my lord god and saviour Jesus Christ aND thank him for saving us.

  12. Lydia I pray with you, my sister. You know the Devil is a liar. Do not have jealousy to anything or somebody because when you have worry about something you make God’s plan not work on you. God BLESS.

  13. I praise You to day my dear Heavenly Father,I thank you for Your Grace and Peace from God our Father,and the Lord Jesus Chrish,And thank you my dear Lord Jesus, for teaching me not to be jealousy to everyone, and teach me always doing good to everyone.Help me to be more like You.
    I need You each and every day dear Lord
    Jesus.And thank you for bring me God’s
    word each and every morning.
    Thank you so much dear Lord Jesus.
    Amen and Amen.

  14. Thank you for this prayer and these comments. With a heavy heart I must admit that I have jealousy and envy in me. I hate it. It has spread into me wanting to compete with my friends children so that my daughter can feel special. I realize that my daughter is not envious but I have allowed it to creep in me. I need the Lord and prayers to get this ugliness out of me. I want to be a supporter and encourager.

    • Bless you. Pray everyday for the lord to remove the jealousy and ask him for more understanding. The devil will do anything to make us sin.

    • Lord Jesus you are so wonderful, as you said in your word; you shall never leave us nor forsake us, your word and your promises are true.
      I’ve been crying along time to live a holy and righteous life, but could not.
      The word of God says it is not by mighty nor by power but by His Spirit.
      I thank God for this site, I believe and receive from Christ that He had already cleansed me from the spirit of envy, jealous and anger, everyday I’ ve been crying to God to deliver me and repenting from the spirit of anger.
      I receive I am deliverd!!!

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

      • You are so right, everyone around me seems to be blessed with things ive wanted or asked for. I try to be a good person but the jelousy builds up and i end up angry all the time. It must be a test that god is giving us to ensure we all make it to heaven. I rebuke the devil back to were he comes from i rebuke the envy jelously and evil spirit and anything not of god out of each of our lives so we can move forward and learn i pray we all are blessed.

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

  18. 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

  19. 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
