How to Pray for Enemies to Leave You Alone
Prayer during times of intense anxiety or grief can be difficult. It’s easy for the mind to wander, leading to frustration, fear, and discouragement. You may even feel like the Lord isn’t hearing you, or feel guity about only praying when you need something (such as praying to stop your enemies).
A great tip to help encourage your spiritual practice is to set aside a regular time for prayer. This can be in the morning, evening, or even during your daily commute (just keep your eyes open!). Some people refer to this time as “quiet time,” and it can be a great way to open up a daily channel for God to speak through you and press things on your heart. In times of stress or frustration with your enemies, you can turn to God during these times as your refuge and strength.
Finding a Quiet Space
Another great tip for praying to the Lord is setting aside a dedicated space in your home, room, or office.
This can be as simple as a table and chair, a bench in your garden, or favorite spot in your house. Coming to this space for prayer will help you associate it with the Lord and the peace he brings.
Whenever you are feeling upset or anxious, you can come to this spot and listen to the Lord for his guidance.
Remind Yourself of God’s Love
When your enemies are incessant and won’t leave you alone, you can feel overstimulated and overwhelmed. You may feel alone and weak in the presence of your enemies. However, it’s important to remember that the Lord lives inside of us and through us.
Consider wearing a piece of jewelry or accessory to remind you of God’s presence in your life. Holding it in your hands during prayer can be comforting, and carrying it with you always is a reminder that God’s love never fails us.
Dealing with enemies is a frustration that no one wants to go through, but can be a chance for the Lord to work in mysterious ways. By trusting God and laying our feelings before Him, we can allow the Lord to work in our life in untold ways.
When you are struggling with insecurity and doubt, take actions to protect yourself at home, work, or school, and lean on prayer. God will see your faith and carry you through difficult times.
