As much as you’d like to be at peace with all men, there will be times of conflict and times when you absolutely must win. During these times, we must be like David and say a prayer for victory over enemies. You can expect victory if You’re fighting for God’s purpose.
Fortunately, unless you’re at war, there’s little to no need to actually fight to the death against our enemies. In the days of the Old Testament, it was an all-out kill-or-be-killed war. Today, most battles are now fought on different levels – economic, political, social media, and even spiritual.
But even if we fight different battles, victory is still our desire. And God grants victory to those who fight for His purposes. Let’s not be timid and instead be bold in approaching God and asking for victory through prayer.
Let us pray.
Prayer For Victory Over Enemies
God our Father in Heaven, we stand before You in prayer, humble before Your great presence. We pray that You grant Your believers victory over their enemies.
Lord Jesus, You said that whenever two or three are gathered in Your Name, there You will be. We humbly ask for Your presence beside us.
We know that the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective, yet we claim no righteousness of our own other than the righteousness of our Lord Jesus.
Examine their hearts, Lord, for any wrongdoing and reveal their sins to them. If there’s any sin in their hearts, have mercy and let them seek Your forgiveness and repent of their sins. But if their conscience is clear, please help them win against their enemies.
You know them, Lord, more than anyone ever could. You know when they are right and wrong, and You can direct their steps and tell them to ask for forgiveness if they have wronged anyone.
But if they can’t make peace with their enemies and are unwilling to forgive and continue to attack and persecute Your believers, we ask for Your protection, Lord. Shelter them, for You are their rock and their fortress. Grant them victory against these enemies so their enemies can know You and bow down before You.
Defend them, Lord, against not just human enemies but spiritual enemies as well. Defend them against the principalities and strongholds that seek to ensnare believers into their grip. Teach them to put on the full armor of God to be ready for any battle.
And yet we also pray that You let their enemies encounter You, Lord, for who You really are. Let them know You as both Lord and Savior. Cause them to surrender to You. Transform them and make them repent from their sins. Then the world will know that You are truly God.
May the favor and protection of the Lord be with them always. In Jesus’ name, we pray. And God’s people said, “Amen!”.
Does it seem like the battle is hopeless? Read these prayers for hopelessness and be renewed.
For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” – Deuteronomy 20:4
Short Prayer For Victory Over Enemies
Father in heaven, I pray that You will grant me victory over my enemies. Search my heart Lord, for any sin I have made against them so I can repent. But if my conscience is clear, please protect me from their persecution and grant me victory in our battles.
Teach me how to fight this battle, Lord, so that I may praise and glorify Your name in front of my enemies. Grant me wisdom as I try to make the right moves and give me doors of opportunity to show the truth.
May You never leave nor forsake me in this spiritual battle. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit. – Peter 3:18
Prayer For Victory Over Strongholds
Lord God, You are the God that breaks the chains that enslave us and bind us. As I wear God’s full armor, help me battle against strongholds and principalities that are not of this world.
Reveal their deception, Lord, and do not let them spread false news. Strengthen my faith and give me the courage to stand up against these powers. I know that they have no chance against You.
All of this I pray in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

Prayer Against Envious Enemies
Lord God, Heavenly Father, I am being persecuted on all sides and have no one to turn to except You. In my weakness, be my strength. Show my enemies that You are the God Almighty.
Let my enemies crumble at the foot of the cross and show them to repent from their sins. Protect everyone in our household and let no harm fall on us.
We trust You and claim this prayer is answered in Jesus’s mighty Name. Amen.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life. You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes; with your right hand you save me. – Psalms 138:7
Prayer For Victory And Protection
Lord, as I go out to battle against my enemies, grant me the protection and the strength to emerge victorious. Protect me against their evil plans and their lies and deception. Reveal the truth about them and show them the road to repentance.
Do not let them get a foothold. Instead, go ahead of me and drive them far away from my territory. Expand my borders so that everyone will know that You are the Lord of the Universe.
I lift everything to You, Lord, in Jesus’s name. Amen.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me. – Philippians 4:13
Prayer Of Victory And Favor
Lord, the God of David, I pray for Your favor as I face my battles in this world. Please grant me the strength to stand up against evil and the stamina to endure the attacks of my enemies. Do not honor them, Lord and instead grant me victory over their evil schemes.
For I know that If You are for me, who can be against me? I thank You in advance for answering this prayer in Jesus’s name.
You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, And Your right hand upholds me And Your gentleness makes me great. – Psalm 18:35
Prayer For Enemies To See God
Lord God, as I stand against my enemies, I pray they will get to know You and see You in glory and might. Give them a chance to repent and turn away from a life of sin. And grant me the faith and patience to trust You, Lord. Protect me from their attacks and open the door to introduce the Gospel to my enemies.
I pray all this in Jesus’s name. Amen.
But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. – Corinthians 2:14
