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.

“Father,

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.”

  2. I am experiencing all of the above… A new woman started work… I was nothing but helpful and encouraging to her. But all of a sudden she turned on me and started to ostracize me from events going on at work. She has gone out of her way to turn people against me. I don’t know what or why this is happening. It almost feels like Junior high, where the new girl turns on you and becomes one of the mean girls…. I know this probably makes no sense…. But it has effected me with depression and hurt.I don’t understand..

  3. My friend is facing a serious challenge in her workplace. A new staff cohort with the hold staff to unseat her position. She’s mentally, emotionally disturbed and she’s making lots of mistake at work. Please, people of God, help her in prayer for the battle is for the Lord.

    Thanks

    • I’m having the same issue, especially with the mistakes. this is something I’m not used to. It is a much older woman than I, who verbally attacks my character behind my back. Its hard to sleep, I wake up emotionally, physically and mentally drained. She’s 62, I’m 21. I fear losing my job as I am new here, only three months and she got the girl who was also my age, fired.

  4. Wow I’m just seeing all these people going through so much on their jobs yes it’s spiritual warfare with these bosses that’s in position I’m at a job that I didn’t ask for the manager big me to take the job at a HR Lead position and didn’t didn’t properly trained me correctly so everything is coming down on him so he’s blaming me and tried to write me up today but I didn’t sign it he has a spirit manipulating lying being messy and he is homosexual

  6. This year has been the worst year for me in my professional career. I have been constantly lied on, ostracized, bullied, made fun of, constantly bad mouthed all by one of my bosses who is constantly abusing me – If I’m talking to a friend and he’s near by he will do a complete about face to see what the conversation entails. I really need God at this time I’ve never experienced this before – I’ve tried going higher up the food chain but nothing is ever done about his behavior.

    • Molly I know you don’t want to hear this, you are not alone in experiencing this, and my struggle with my current supervisor is the same that lead me to this prayerAll we can do is pray, keep our head up, keep our faith and belief strong in the Father, the Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, and don’t allow evilness defeat us. I have developed a new mantra of, “I am coming out for the Father God, the Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. “

  7. Please pray for my son 50 years old who will face a lay off from his job as a crane mechanic. This job has been good for him and he will not be able to replace it if laid off. There are 2 men in there 70 ‘s who have hard time with the labor work were offered a retirement plan but refused it . They have seniority over my son, so he is the first to go. If laid off he will lose his home he is building and the rent will double to 1800 per month. He really needs his job I prayed the prayers and might need some more prayer. The stress is affecting his health Thank you and

  9. Please pray for me. I am in a leadership position. My job is to protect and advocate for others in the education field. We have such limited resources. I care deeply for those I lead and we we have so much working against us. I carry a huge burden to keep everyone safe from those who try to do us harm. Jesus is teaching me that His burden is light and I submit daily. God has been so good and just. It is a long fight.

  10. I am just so disappointed and in need of God’s deliverance into a better productive working environment. I waited for about two years to get the department I am currently working in and I was so elated when I finally got this position. They switched Supervisor’s a couple of months in and this very young inexperienced lady with a power hungry attitude was granted the position. I felt this was going to be a rough up hill journey but I never could imagine how insensitive unfair and rude this young lady was ever going to become. She has made it so stressful my blood pressure gets so high and migraine headaches everyday just with the thought of having to endure the day with her. I stay prayed up but I just need God to please anoint me and cover me in the absolute blood of Jesus. I pray for her to be softened and stripped down to clarity so that she may see herself as she truly is and help her to truly change her spirit to be better and a kind person. I am seeking God’s favor in blessing my business where I do not have to any longer endure Cooperate politics, and I can make others happy and bring joy to people’s events. I pray for deliverance from this bad situation . I pray healing to my flesh and also for my spirit. I pray for forgiveness and strength in a time that I feel so defeated and weak.

    • Sister Nicole,

      Prayer one of a Believer in the Lord Jesus Christ’s most powerful weapons. Our faith causes us to pray from a place of victory! I’m dealing with a work situation myself, but I made the decision to keep my heart right by PRAYING FOR THE PERSON!

      Remember, people who don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ are doing EXACTLY what they are supposed to do…lend themselves to the influence of darkness. BUT WE WHO KNOW HIM, put our trust in Him ALONE…AND PRAY! I’ll be adding you to my time of intercession and if I don’t ever hear the praise report I already know YOU’RE VICTORIOUS!!!

  11. I have been on a daily battle to come to work everyday. My nightmare started when my department head threw a staff at me that nobody wanted. She used to work in two other teams, made hell for people in those teams and in the end , she was thrown to me as a last resort. She is lazy, not willing to do a single bit more, always finding excuses at work, not cooperative, rude and only great at 2 things – backstabbing and complaining. I have talked to her but to no avail. I talked to my boss to transfer her out also she wont as she cannot go anywhere else. As such, my life had been very miserable. I pray for a miracle that something will happen she will soon leave me and I can continue to work with peace of mind

  12. I am 63 years old and have been working this job for over 4.5 years. My husband is at end stage renal failure and I have been the sole support for him. I provide all the money and insurance for his dialysis. The last 6 months I have been written up for every little thing. From font sizes on a word document to quality of work . The stress has been so bad I can’t eat, sleep and just today passed out over an email criticizing my work. Please pray. I can’t take the stress anymore. Thank you

    • Hi Susie, God bless you for your loyalty and kindness to your husband. I pray that God will make a way in the darkness, that He will lift you abc your husband up from this situation, I also pray that He would bring complete healing to your husband’s body. I come against all lies of the devil in every area of both of your lives, and we know that by the stripes, by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, we are all HEALED and DELIVERED. While it may be hard to keep your head up, keep full confidence in God to protect you and to advocate on your behalf. Also, I pray that if God can bring you a better work opportunity with supportive staff and coworkers, He would do so immediately, in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen! Be well, do not fear, you and your husband, in Jesus, carry the authority of God over all that would seek to destroy you. Sending you love, peace, fortitude and faith. Hallelujah!

    • I pray GOD will relieve some of the stress you are experiencing at work. As I read your story I can share with you that my work situation is very similar to yours. I just know GOD is there for both of us and I pray we both are blessed with longevity at our jobs. Hang in there. Your story is giving me HOPE. I wish you and your husband the very best. Amen.

  13. I am in a similar situation at work. My supervisors are incredibly rude to me, treat me like I am completely incompetent and unworthy of the job. Its high pressure and deals with a lot of money. I have only been there six weeks but its been humiliating, stressful and I never sleep anymore. I have a nervous system disorder that causes panic attacks and now I just freeze and apologize and make mistakes over and over because of it. I want to quit and not work there anymore and its sad to me because I really was excited to get the job to begin with and wanted the health insurance and retirement there, but now it doesnt even matter to me. Im starting a menopause stage, my husband and I may separate after 23 years together and two of my children have health and mental health disorders and I needed this job to help them as well. I am just not strong any longer and my husband is no longer very emotionally supportive. I had one hour of sleep last night and have to be at work at 4:40 today and work till 12:40am and I know that this extreme lack of sleep which is almost every day now will effect my work performance and I will be berated and belittled for it. I dont even know what to pray for anymore because there is so much causing me to break down mentally, physically and even spiritually. I need Gods help so bad and I pray every day before work and first thing when I wake up, even with no sleep. I feel like im about to collapse and I honestly dont want to go to work today. I just dont know what to do anymore, im ready to give up on everything. Maybe someone out here can pray for me and my family. There is honestly so much more going on then I can explain.

    • Praying for you La dawn, we are experiencing the same. God knows what’s going on and He will help us.
      Continue to read the word of God. And He will direct our path.

    • I decree and declare that these mountains be moved in the name of Jesus. You will operate with excellence because you have the mind of Christ and you carry the glory of God

    • Mrs.Bowman,
      I pray that God hears your prayer and bring peace to your situation. I feel you 100% going through a similar situation at work. I pray daily for my boss who thinks one day on the schedule a week is all I need. He picks and I never pleases him. I know I haven’t done wrong is why I pray for God to deal with him. I pray all is well with you. Hang in there don’t give up.
      May God bless you and your family!

  14. Hello, I am really experiencing a lot of harassment on my job. My immediate supervisor recently retired and now I have no one to stand up for me. I have been harassed from this person every since I have been on this job. Now this new girl works with her and now harass me also. My leaders are influenced by them and always go with them. They never ask my side they talk to them and make decisions about me on what they are told by them. They speak to me very harshly. I have asked on several occasion to have a meeting with leadership but they wont even talk with me. I recently had a run in with one of the ladies. I was off work but had not left the building when she came to me and ask me to sign for some paperwork that she was trying to give to me, I told her that I was off work but just hadn’t left yet. she insisted that I sign the paper, I told her no because I was off. She then took it to the head boss and told her I wouldn’t sign the paperwork because I was off. I immediately left the building. this was not the first time she has done this, she has done this on several occasions waited until I get ready to leave to come to bring me work. The leadership did not come to me and ask me about the situation. she had the other boss just to change my schedule to leave at a later time. I want my schedule changed back to 7 to 3 and to get the promotion I deserve and stop the harassment .

    • Jehovah , you have heard your child. Give her her due promotion and let these harrassment stop. Show up in this situation and let your will be done in the name of Jesus

  15. I have been working at my current job for 7 months. People ask me how I got the job because people are hired by referral. No one referred me. I work in a cubicle setting and a guy next to me always says smirk remarks about me to a person who trained me. He is always looking at my work and even went behind my work, always looking at my drawer when I open it. People looks at me with the kind of look of why I’m there. I feel that rumors has been said about me. One of the management team does not like me and she express it. I have done nothing wrong to them but be kind and I do my work.
    People get jealous when my name shows that I did the most work for that day and I hear smirks remarks. I almost wanted to say that we are all in the same team. But I don’t want to say it because it might make the situation worst. I’m hurt inside. They claim to be a Christian but likes to talk about me. I see a lot of favoritism and it shows. It affects me.
    I want to speak to the management about this but I am misunderstood when I speak. I don’t know what to do. Please pray for me. I want my situation at work to change.

  16. please pray for my friend and I we are in different state but going through similar situations pray for the blood of Jesus wash over us. Bullying hurts so much. I love my job but now I hate to go to work, cry a lot feel so lost.

  17. Hi All,

    It breaks my heart to hear how we are all so similar in struggles at work and the spiritual warfare we are in the midst of that is causing stress and strain from harassment, racism, gender equality issues, and other forms of discrimination and no inclusive practices. For my testimony, I have been with my employer for three years and I was placed under a manager last year who immediately let me know through his behavior that he didn’t want me on his team. He intentionally refuses to provide guidance, expectations, and feedback. He has been setting me up to fail. He also has verbally abused and talks poorly about me to my team members and management. He is setting me up to fail. By the grace of God I have survived this long and I trust God will sustain me as I look to find employment elsewhere. The politics of my environment are wrought with a lot of fear, backbiting, competition, and racist tactics all under the guise of this great culture. It is sad to think how many other people are going through this as well. Pleas pray for me as I pray for you. Be blessed everyone!

    • In the name of Jesus, I stand in agreement with RLT praying for protection from all evil. Jesus, your word states, “For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.” Thank you, Lord Jesus, for protection and favor for RLT. Please open doors of opportunity and send your Holy Spirit to convict the hearts and minds of those in management and on the team. Let no weapon formed prosper against RLT. Isaiah 54:17 says “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.” Thank you Lord for deliverance, for peace and for the overflow of blessings. In Jesus name, Amen.

  18. I have read what other people are going through and it makes me sad. I have two people at work targeting me and one is a person I pushed through the lines because she is a good worker and deserves to be in this position. But now she snubs me and I believe she and my boss are trying to get me fired. I work very hard at my job and make sure things are done. I hate going to work now it’s such a horrible feeling I could cry daily. I just want to get through two more years and I can retire. I guess I did not see the real person that deserved the advancement and I feel I made it happen. God knows how hard I work he knows everything. I just let people walk on me and I have tears now so I had better go. Thanks for letting me say this to someone. I am really afraid because I have obligations to pay all of my bills. We

    • Loretta, I am going through something very similar. The situation is affecting my sleep, my stomach and my overall emotional state. I need my job too and have to wait for two years to retire. I feel like an idiot because I did not see the imposter and the Abalsom spirit that has risen up. I am glad this prayer was shared. I cry out to God for help and plead the blood of Jesus. I am in a prayer of agreement for all that is going through as we are that God will deliver us and no Weapon formed Against us will Prosper and Anyone that has the Nerve to rise against us shall be defeated. No Weapon! In the Name of Jesus! The Blood.

  19. Please everybody pray for me as I’m in a job where people have started dating each other in the same office and are teaming up against me every way because I tell them when they are doing things incorrectly that could hurt patients. I only have a few months left at this job but they are doing everything and telling every lie to try to get me out of my job. If anybody knows how awful is when you work so hard and people begin to do everything and say everything malicious. I’m praying somebody sees this and will pray for me. Thank you

  20. I m writing feeling so hurt. I’m stagnant and abused at work. I am a hardworking person and I have been putting my work first. I’m the one doing everything in my department less than everyone though I’m earning less than. It’s been 7 years. I have been working hard. Thinking hard works will work for me. Hard works don’t pay. People. Managers are taking advantage of me overworking me. For this past 7 years I have seen people come and grow before my eyes. It’s hurting me. Jobs are scares. I have bills to pay. Family to provide.. I am stagnant. I pray that God will open a door for me. I need to find onether job as soon as possible.i can’t go anymore

  21. Power of prayer is powerful prayer in JESUS name I been attacked by my supervisor on the job on many occasions this prayer had help it’s sad that caused you black and work for the government and be a victim of discrimination from a white supervisor but by the grace of God this prayer had help me

  22. Hey, I’m facing some attacks at my job. Thank you for this prayer. I have been at this job for 2 years now. I was a temp and the I got hired on. This lady that’s over me is giving me a hard time. She will not help me or train me probably. Little mistake I make she emailing me. She checking my timesheet. I have done both to her, but be nice. I’m a single mom and also she’s a single. Some time she’s nice, but it’s like she snaps and become mean. I get so stressed out to hear I’m not Focus on my work. Please say a prayer for me. I love my job and I want to be there for a long time. But, she making it hard for me. Also, she looks down on me because what type of car I drive and it’s not a newer car. Thank you! God bless!

  23. I am requesting agreement through the Blood of Jesus.
    I have been harrassed and bullied at work for over a year now. I raised a grievance, and that had made them even more insistant in terminating my employment. Yesterday, I receive yet another letter requesting me to attend an investigation meeting. with so much stress and worry, I missed my shift on Tuesday 9th July, thinking it was afternoon shift allocation, but it was for the morning shift. I turned up at wotk for the afternoon shift and was sent home, and I followed up with an email to apologise. I plead the blood of jesus over this situation and would ask for intercessory prayers to avert this upcoming threat of disciplinary action against me. Every blessings.

  24. Thank you so much for this prayer – spiritual warfare is real. I’m experiencing it daily, yet I although not always strong, I stay in faith that the demon spirits which surround me near, far and hidden will be casted away as needed for my protection.

  25. Hi all, well just like a lot of us, I too have had a job and all of a sudden out of the blue I was called in for an investigation meeting over something I did not commit. I’m asking that whosoever reads this can be an intercessor in my life and pray that as I head to this meeting with management tomorrow morning I’m not only saved from this situation but blessed. I have always been someone who never gets into no trouble at work let alone had tifs or anything along this lines with co workers and so this is really heartbreaking for me. My name is Laura.

    • Dear Laura,
      I just saw this today. I pray the Lord has delivered and vindicated you. The Lord has promised never to leave you or forsake. He hears the cries of His children and answers them. The Lord’s protection, favor and provision continue to be you and your loved ones. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
