Battle Prayer Against An Unjust Situation At Work

Last updated on:

I have another real good story to pass onto to all of you – once more showing the power of intercessory prayer and how God will not only answer prayer, but sometimes very quickly like He did in this story!

This story happened several years ago with a woman who I used to work with. She called me up one day and said her husband had been under a lot of pressure at work and that it was really starting to get to him.

He works for big airline company and had been employed with them for a long time. He was only 5 months away from retiring, so he did not want to quit with what was going on. He was one of the foremen in the department he was working in.

To make a long story short, this company had hired a guy about 6 months ago to basically be a headhunter and hatchet man. This new man had a very demeaning attitude towards those who were working under him. He acted just like a drill sergeant would if you were in the marines. He was calling his employees all kinds of demeaning names, constantly ridiculing and harassing them, and making their lives at work completely miserable.

My friend’s husband was working on this man’s shift and he was her husband’s direct boss. After about 6 months of working under this kind of severe demeaning dictatorship, my friend said it was really starting to get to her husband and that he could not take much more of it.

Her husband is a good Christian man, but he did not have much knowledge on the real power of prayer, or how to engage with an enemy by going on the offensive against it operating under God’s anointing.

I had immediate leading from the Holy Spirit to give her the following advice.

  1. Since her husband really did not have much knowledge on spiritual warfare, I told her that she could stand in the gap on his behalf and go directly to God the Father to handle this bad situation for them. I told her with her being his wife, that there was a real good chance that God would honor her prayer on his behalf and that He may just move very mightily to completely take care of this adverse situation.
  2. I told her to do 2 things. I told her to Plead the Blood against this drill sergeant and any demons who may be operating behind the scenes influencing this man to act like he was doing. I then told her to Plead the Blood with the intentions of stopping any further demeaning attacks coming against her husband from this man.
  3. I then told her to ask God to take complete care of this situation and for Him to bring complete and total deliverance to her husband from this man. I told her to tell God that her husband could no longer take it anymore, that you were standing in the gap on his behalf, and that you are asking Him to bring complete and total deliverance to him so that he would not quit or possibly get fired from his job by this man.

She went ahead that night and Pleaded the Blood of Jesus and petitioned God the Father with the above request. This prayer was done on a Tuesday night.

The next day – Wednesday – her husband went into work on the regular 8-5 shift that he was working. You won’t believe what happened next when he walked into work that morning!

As soon as he arrived, one of his other bosses called him in to speak with him in private. This other boss told her husband that this drill sergeant that this company had just hired was indeed a hatchet man, and that they had hired him to get rid of some of the dead wood in the place. This drill sergeant was getting ready to fire 6 people on her husband’s shift.

His boss then told him that he was not on the list to get fired – yet! He told my friend’s husband that this drill sergeant did not like him and that he was just looking for a good excuse to also fire him along with the other six people that were definitely going to get fired.

He then proceeds to tell my friend’s husband that he considers him to be a keeper, that he has always been a real good worker for the company, and that they did not want to lose him due to the fanatical whims of this drill sergeant.

So in order to protect him from this hatchet man, they tell him that they are going to transfer him to the third shift, which is the night shift.

This meant that he would no longer be under this man’s dictatorship and that he would be completely set free from him. He would now be working under a completely new and different boss.

My friend said she just about fell over when her husband came home that afternoon and told her about what had just happened.

She had just Pleaded the Blood of Jesus and asked God to take care of this situation the night before – and God literally moved in the space of about 12 hours to completely set her husband free from this man!

What are the odds of all of this happening in just 12 hours after she went on the offensive with the type of battle prayer I drew up for her below? Coincidence? I seriously doubt it!

Just more proof that not only does God answer prayer – but sometimes He can move very quickly like He did in this story. This story is another one to add to our ever-growing list on the power of Pleading the Blood of Jesus and engaging with an enemy head on when we are forced to do so.

Prayer warfare will work if you are willing to step into the arena with God and take your enemy head on like my friend did on her husband’s behalf since her husband did not know how to do this for himself.

This story also shows the power of intercessory prayer – that we can stand in the gap for someone else and pray to God for their deliverance.

I really believe that God loves it when we move into intercessory prayer on behalf of someone else. I think the reason He likes it so much is due to the fact that we are praying for someone else, not for ourselves! Intercessory prayer is a completely unselfish type of prayer since you are not praying to God for your wants and needs. You are praying for someone else’s need. This fact right here is why I believe God will sometimes answer intercessory prayer for someone else very quickly and very powerfully like He did on this story.

The other positive thing about the above story is that it really elevated my friend’s faith in the Lord. It showed her that God could answer one of her prayers – especially if she is standing in the gap for someone else and praying to God for their deliverance.

When you see God move to answer a prayer so quickly and so supernaturally like He did in this case, it makes you want to try it again with Him!

I will let you know if any more good stories like this come in. The above story is just another good faith-booster showing all of us how active God can really get when we properly approach Him with our prayer requests, and are willing to take an enemy head on by Pleading the Blood of Jesus directly against that enemy. I will end this article with the Battle Prayer that I gave to her to set her husband completely free from this adverse situation at work.

The Battle Prayer

Here was the battle prayer I gave her to war against this adverse situation at her husband’s place of work. Notice that she will Plead the Blood of Jesus directly against this foremen, directly against his verbal attacks, and directly against any demons who may be operating behind the scenes influencing this foreman to act like he was acting. I then had her Plead the Blood of Jesus as a bloodline around her husband in order to prevent any more attacks from coming his way.


In the name of Jesus, I now come boldly before Your throne to stand in the gap for my husband. As I know You already know, he has been under severe attack at work from a new foreman who seems to want to get him fired. My husband is only 5 months away from being able to retire and there is no way that he can quit his job at this time

Father, in the name of Jesus, I now ask that You take this battle up for my husband and that You bring complete and total deliverance to him from this new foreman who has been unjustly harassing him.

Father, in the name of Jesus, I now Plead the Blood of Jesus directly against this foreman. I now Plead the Blood of Jesus against all of his verbal attacks against my husband.

If there are any demons influencing this foreman to harass my husband, I now Plead the Blood of Jesus against each and every demon that is operating behind the scenes causing this to happen. Demons, go now, in the name of Jesus Christ! I repeat, go now in the name of Jesus Christ!

Father, in the name of Jesus, I now Plead the Blood of Jesus as a Bloodline around my husband. Father, from this moment on, I believe this Bloodline will now protect my husband from any further attacks from this foreman.

Father, I now ask that You move as quickly as You possibly can to end this harassing situation with my husband, and ask that You bring complete and total deliverance to this adverse situation.

Father, I have full faith and belief that the Blood of Your Son Jesus will now protect my husband from any further attacks from this man, and that You will now move in the time frame You so desire to set my husband completely free from this man.

Thank You Father.
Thank You Jesus.
Thank You Holy Spirit.”

    Hello I found your prayer and changed the wording to my need. I’m a supervisor in the medical office and really enjoyed my job and staff. I’m a Christian woman and believe that they are good people in this world. Until I came across 2 people on my staff who tried to get me fired. The lies they told my manager and HR to make me tired to get me fired. I was told by other employees on my team the schemes they will use to get me fired. How can people be so evil to do things like. This job is my only income I have a mortgage and bills that I can hardly keep up with, my kids and grandkids depends on my income to make ends meet. My vehicle giving me trouble I need my job I wish my managers will see the truth and get rid of the 2 trouble people. Before I actually started with this company other supervisors have told me about them the trouble they bring I don’t understand why they still there. I pray and trust inGod that they will see through them and release them from this company. Heavenly Father see the truth and I plead the blood of Jesus on my situation. I need your help please pray for me

  7. Please pray for me. A lady at work has been speaking blatant lies against me i believe to keep others from talking to me. The reaction to me from others has been sarcasm, dismissive and unfriendly. Some have been drastic and completely stopped talking to me (including my manager). I have done nothing to this woman & we have never had an argument or disagreement and we still talk but she seems to not want me to talk to anyone else. I have done nothing or said anything about any of my colleagues & I don’t engage in gossip conversations. My coworkers know that I am a christian so it’s shocking to me that any of them would believe whatever lie she is telling them. I have gone through all the comments above and prayed for each of you and called out of each of your names before God. Someone please pray for me.

  8. Renee and Gloria,
    This prayer is a saving grace for me .
    I truly believe everything happens for a reason, our human perception don’t see or understand; behind all this is our Heavenly Father orchestration and plans for us. Early last October I just returned to work from a year off due to an illness.
    To make it short, I wasn’t well accepted by the newly hired employee including my close friend. They alienated one of my co-worker in the department and as a result she was moved to a different location.Of course I was also close to this person and saw how much she has suffered when I just came back. All because I was talking to her that the original person in that group started to isolate me and even refused to re-train me. I was more or less treated as a pariah, until I have to bring this to my manager that I was being harassed and bullied. I was really devastated and dreaded coming to work, they made it so
    difficult for me that they managed to do incident reports regarding my work, but with God’s grace it all backfired on them during the process of investigation. Also I am now being trained in a different field and sad to say the department that I left is now going through changes and affecting the people who have alienated me.
    I was constantly praying this prayer and now behold I understand now what God had in store for me. I have always believed He has plans for me I didn’t understand …. I thank you for your comments and insights, but most of all I give thanks to our Merciful God.

  9. My dear one was transferred to a new place. That place was very difficult for her to survive as that place is a remote place. No bus facilities. we were upset and with tears we prayed a lot. While with such heavy grief surfing the web we came to know about this site.

    With full hope and praise we prayed to the Father, in the name of Jesus, Pleaded the Blood of Jesus the Battle Prayer Against An Unjust Situation At Work. within 48 hours the transfer was stopped.
    Amen Alleluia Praise the Lord. Thank you, Father, thank you Jesus & Thank you Holy Spirit. Amen Alleluia Praise the Lord.aAmen Alleluia Praise the Lord

  10. I have been very inspired by the story of the wife interceding for her husband and how God answered and turned the situation right in his favour. God is great and powerful, but at times our faith flicker especially when we are troubled.

    There is currently a situation at work where a member of staff has filed a claim of a breach of confidentiality regarding her condition, by our manager and potentially other staff, some months ago. While that might be so, no one knows how the information became public knowledge and several members of staff are being summoned and questioned. I would appear as though the breach was by a senior member if staff who is no doubt being protected and it would appear as though they are looking for a scapegoat.

    Earlier this week a colleague who is friendly with the staff whose information was breached has been summoned to say how they came to know of the staff’s condition. This colleague said to me that I probably don’t remember but they had heard it from myself. I was completely bowled over as I certainly have no recollection of having said anything and certainly never saw that person’s records.

    I am asking you to pray for me that I do not get dragged into this situation and be wrongfully blamed. While I have prayed myself, there is more power in numbers and I truly believe that. I ask that God will lay His Mighty hand and plead the Blood of Jesus on those responsible and that I do not get caught up in the situation.

    Thank you for your urgent prayers and I trust and believe that the situation will soon pass and that I will be left out of it.

  11. Amen Sister thank you for sharing this story. It was very touching and inspirational. Yes God is amazing, we can trust him at all times. He is our protector he is our provider and he is the one that protects us from our enemies. Please keep me in your prayer, for our LOVING God to protect me from all my enemies in Jesus holy name. Thanks and be bless.

  12. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR making this prayer available to ALL. I do believe in the power of interceeding on behalf of other HOWEVER, I needed this prayer for ME. AND IT WORKED! I had a very mean boss that treated me like a DOG every chance he got…totally abusing his authority. But Thank God for this prayer and the hand of God. I prayed this prayer everyday and that mean old supervisor is GONE…it didnt take long. THANK YOU JESUS

  13. Please pray for me I work at a Hospital in CA and my coworker did a search on a high profile patients record on my computer. She didn’t look in the file or print anything but now I am being investigated. I told HR it wasn’t me but that I knew who it was. After my interview my coworker was interview she denied she accessed the records. But in front of another employee she stated that she did access the chart but never opened.
    I emailed the persons investigating me after that she stated that she accessed the record but did not open to view. I ask you to pray that I don’t lose my job this is my only income.

  14. Reading this makes me know there’s hope for me and my situation!! I don’t wanna quit and bring on more stress for my husband as if he already has stress in paying bills!! Lord keep me covered in your mighty name!! Give me the strength to endure this as I search for something else!

    • Karyn, there’s a bright light shining through this situation. You see God closes some doors that we want to stay open because we don’t understand he has bigger and better in store for us. We become so comfortable where we are that we have to BE pushed out of our comfort zone as in your situation. Look at it as God preparing you for greater. Let me know when you get your much better reward from GOD

      • Renee,
        Reading your comment is very enlightening; how true it is when we become so comfortable we become anxious when new things unknown to us is being prepared by our loving Heavenly Father. Thank you as I am also going through rough time at work your comment sure have given me inspiration and understanding.

    • Hi Karyn, Hope you have had a positive resolution? Nepotism at work is not good to experience. I work in HR, can I offer any insight, or are you doing better?

  17. Hi, I was moved by the above story of the wife praying the above Battle Prayer Against An Unjust Situation At Work. I too have been going through a unjust situation at work. A person whom I was once friends with stopped speaking to me because I wouldn’t assist in getting someone fired about 3 years ago. This same person is now in a position of power at work over me and is doing everything in her power to fire me. The smallest of things she tries to find something wrong with it even when its unfounded. I am a very easy going person & get along with everybody in our office except her. I feel that her issues are more personal because we are no longer friends & she now has the opportunity to use that against me in the workplace. She is always finding new ways to try to attack my character even talking behind my back. She’s also very rude to the other employees & are trying to find away to fire others as well. I have been applying for other jobs to try to leave the company altogether with no avail. This is very stressful to come to work knowing that no matter what you do it will never be right in her eyes. Please give me advice on how to pray against this. Thanks

    • Hello. I went through the same thing for almost 3 years. No weapon formed against me prospered. You need to do the same thing I did, which is pray the same prayer listed above. Modify it to your situation and be consistent. It will work if you keep your heart pure and Do Your part

  18. My husband lost his job today of 8 years because accusations made against him by a female employee. They suspended him last week never asked him his side and called and fired him over the phone. He was investigated by HR department his teammates signed a statement that it wasn’t true because he sent the young lady home for not clocking out for lunch everyone heard her cursing and bad talking him he even got his boss on the phone and he heard it and said send her home. So today it was something else they said he was paying people for time they didn’t work. All untrue and they never called him in to ask only hear say. He started as a line working and worked his way up to supervisor. Everyone has gotten rid of the young lady in there department because she’s a trouble maker now they do this to my husband.

  19. I love these wonderful things God does. Kindly help me solve problems at my workplace. I am supposed to be the next head of department yet the one who is yet to finish his term at the end of July next month I hear has lobbied and will do another two years. I need God’s intervention.

  20. Please pray for me..I have been at my job for 10 years and a new manager took over and putting the other workers against me as she lacks the knowledge for the position she holds and would often have to come to me to know what to do.
    I am in fear of losing my job as she has started doing little schemes with upper management and other staff to make me look bad when things are presented to her she ignores them to make it look like I am not doing my work. please please pray for me as I depend on the income of this job to see about my young child

  21. I ask for prayers for my husband. Politics have kicked in in his place of work. He is being accused thru a public audit that have shown descrepencies they have not spoken to him about. He has not been given a chance to show them where everything is at and he has not gone to work because they have asked him to stay away till they are done. Things have been changed since he has been gone which looks like those are his practices. I pray that justice will shine thru and that the people that after him will see things thru Christ’s eyes not thru evil. I pray for my husband and all who are involved. In the blood of Jesus Christ and I ask for personal prayers for my husband.

  22. Please pray for me I have been at my job for 5 years and do my job very well. Now i have a new director who is looking for ways to fire me. Yesterday i was giving a performance improvement plan that include lies and stated the working i have been during for 5 years now its not good enough.

  23. I really really need prayer today as I am facing an enquiry over things others have done as a norm but only I was singled out for disciplinary action. My family depends on this job. I love this job I don’t want to lose it. Please pray for me. Intercede on my behalf to Jesus.

  24. Please pray for me..I have been at my job for 13 years and a new manager took over and now I am in fear of losing my job and my license..she have been accusing us of stealing but because I stand of for my coworkers I am now been investigated by the state pleasepray for me

  25. Ay.
    I keep having dreams that I was retrenched from my job post by my company due to constant harrasement from my boss and backstabbing from people I helped grow in the system. They continuously claim I am a treat and that I am getting more popular with the company’s customers. So they speak evil of me everywhere and capitalise on my little mistakes. They have said it that the MD will sack me come this New Year and that they have submitted my name. Please pray for me, I am afraid I don’t want to loose my job. Pray for me that God will turn the situation around for me for good. Pray for me that God’s name will be glorified for my case. That all my adversaries shall all be sacked.
