I confess I have enemies. Don’t we all? It seems contradictory being a Christian yet having enemies. Have you ever felt like creating powerful prayers to destroy your enemies, but the Holy Spirit whispers about walking in forgiveness? Even Jesus chased out the temple thieves with whips, yet later Jesus shared communion with Judas.
How do we deal with our enemies?
“Do I pray someone who mistreats me?” or “Is it wrong to ask how to against your enemies progress? Should I just forgive and forget?” I know what your thinking just given me the powerful prayers to destroy your enemies. And I will, but let’s do it Biblically!
1) Father Forgive Them Prayer
On the cross, Jesus said, “Forgive them Father they know not what they doing.” After the Roman soldiers saw everything that happened to Jesus, they had a change of heart. They too, believed Jesus was the son of God.
While, Stephen, was being stoned to death. Stephen asked God to forgive those surrounding him. Saul of Tarsus was there. Maybe Stephen’s prayer was the catalyst for Saul’s supernatural stunning transformation, from persecuting the church into writing almost thirty percent of the New Testament. A transformed Saul, become a vessel for the gospel.
Even though it hurts us to pray forgiveness prayer for our enemies, they are powerful prayers to destroy your enemies. You never know until you try it, your enemy might have a complete turnaround like Saul or the roman soldiers. This prayer works wonders if your “enemy” is not a Christian.
There are glorious victories in the “God forgive them,” prayer when we ask for our Father to forgive those who hurt us.
Prayer for victory over your enemy
In Jesus’ name, Father, forgive them they know not what they do. Lord, change their heart and mind, open their eyes to the truth. Save them, Lord Jesus, forgive me for not loving them enough and help me forgiving anyone who has hurt me. Free them Lord Jesus from any bondages and strong holds of this world or from the devil. Father, bring them to a place where they can accept you as savior and fulfill their God given destiny.
Salvation prayers and praying scriptures are powerful prayers to destroy your enemies by turning them into Jesus followers. Resulting in transforming your enemies from the inside out and they will stop persecuting you.
2) Blessing your enemies
How do you bless your enemies, this prayer proves more difficult than the Father forgive them prayer! My spiritual advisor, has a strategy of blesses his enemies away. Guess what, my advisor’s “enemy” ended up winning the lottery BUT that person never caused trouble for my friend again! Now that’s blessing your enemy away.
Jesus stated that when you bless your enemies, God thinks of you as His son. (Matt 5:45) And if you think of if Christ died for the ungodly, which includes your troublesome enemies. (Romans 5:6.) The verse below always softens my heart,
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Eph. 4:32.
God bless my enemies’ prayer
Lord, in Jesus’ name, I pray you bless my enemies away. Lord, help me realize you died for me, but you also died for me. So Lord, help me forgive my enemies, bless them. Forgive their sins like you have forgiven me. Turn their stony heart into a heart of flesh. Amen.
3) Turn your enemy over to Satan
Paul turned an unrepentant man involved in sexual sin over to the devil. Paul said, “turn that one over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the Day of the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 5:5)
Sometimes you need to withdrawal your assistance from someone for their own good, and unfortunately allow Satan to have their way with the person.
This is hard to do. I’d question is it wrong to pray against your enemies? It goes against everything I know. Honestly, on two occasions, God warned me not to pray for a believer. I was shocked. But I realized God knows best how to untangle someone from the sin, even if it means turning them over to Satan.
What happened to the man Paul and the church rebuked? It seems he repented since Paul changed his prayer strategy to and tells the congregation to stop punishing him and for them to forgive, encourage and love him. As the Bible says the best way to overcome evil is with good.
Prayer for turning your enemy over to Satan
God, you see what they have done, they are committing sin and not living for you Lord. In fact, they don’t care what you think. So Lord, remove your hedge of protection from them if it means protecting them and saving their soul. Let them wallow in the sins of the flesh. Let Satan have his way with this person, so they will hit the bottom.
In Jesus’ name I pray this person will repent, turn back to God and see Your grace. Cover all their sins with your blood, Jesus. And I pray Lord heal everyone this person has hurt. Restore them Lord, and help me to forgive them so I won’t be in bondage either. Amen.
4) Chase Out Your Enemies
Jesus chased out the money changers in the temple with whips. Sometimes you have to stand up to your enemy and chase them out of your head or even out of your life. But you have to seek God to know when to do that.
Jesus told the money changes,
He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.”
Sometimes after we have an encounter with our enemy we can focus on them and that steals our precious time with God.
Prayer for whipping my enemy out of my head
Lord, in Jesus’ name, help me get the enemy out of my head. I see they are robbing me of my prayer time with you. The enemy is taking valuable space in my head when I could focus on you or pray for others. Thank you for giving me the strength to chase them out of my mind so I can enjoy your peaceful presence Amen.
Cast Out Satan
If you really want your powerful prayers to destroy you’re enemies to gain victory. Your prayers need to target the powers of darkness that are over your enemy.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this darkness, against evil, spiritual forces in the heavens.” Eph. 6:12
Caution you need to ask God how to proceed with this. Ask God what principle is working fueling your friend and for the strategy. Enlist help from other seasoned prayer warriors to cast out the principality working within your enemy.
Here are some scriptures you can incorporate into your powerful prayers to destroy your enemies.
“Deliver me from my enemies, O my God; Defend me from those who rise up against me.” Psalm 59:1
“He delivers me from my enemies. You also lift me up above those who rise against me; You have delivered me from the violent man.” Psalm 18:481Let God arise, Let His enemies be scattered; Let those also who hate Him flee before Him.” Psalm 68:1
“‘No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,’ Says the Lord.” Isaiah 54:17
“Through You we will push down our enemies; Through Your name, we will trample those who rise up against us.” Psalm 44.5
These are just a few, read a few psalms every day, they are filled with how to pray against your enemy.
Prayer Against Principalities
Lord, in Jesus’ name, deliver me from my enemy. I break any word curses spoken over me, no weapon formed against me shall proper. I cast out and scatter the principalities that are working through my enemy’s flesh. Lord, trample those that are rising against me. I bind and I loose away the powers flowing through your enemy so that they may have no power over me. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
