Binding 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.

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

Set me free

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.


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.

I’m a young Christian, from South Trinidad, seeking the wisdom of the Word and God’s blessings on my life. A journey, that’s just begun, but living to the Glory of God.

  • 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.

  • 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 ????????

    • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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

  • 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
