Renew my faith in You and remind me You’re always in control no matter what is happening around me.
Some of the things these people do and say leave me hurt, helpless, and even afraid. They are vicious and hostile and have deliberately assassinated my character and ruined my reputation. But I choose to stand with Your promise that no power formed against my family and me will prosper, for You are great, and great is Your name. Send your angels to protect me and anyone close to me wherever we go and whatever we do. I pray that You tear down the threats, taunts, false accusations, and abuse hurled by these people. You are no respecter of persons. You are mighty and powerful, and there is no one like you Wonderful God.

May Your love and Faithfulness surround and protect me. I know in Your own time You’ll bring me justice. Until then, I choose to walk in Your light and continue to do things that please You.
Lord, my refuge, shield, hope, and protector, hear my humble cry. Amen.
for Bad Neighbors to Change
Precious God, the Ruler of all kingdoms of the nations and name above all names, I know You have the power to change the behaviors of these people towards other neighbors and me. There’s a total disconnect between them and us. They are rude, mean-spirited, blast music at night, making it impossible to sleep, and even threaten me from time to time. Lord, I ask You to tune their hearts and minds towards You and give them deep understanding to know who You are in a way only You can.
Loving Father, You knew them before they were conceived in their mother’s wombs. You know their hearts and thoughts, the bad and good, the negative and positive. Please transform everything that is evil in them into something that is good. Renew their spirits and guide them towards the correct path. Soften their hearts to talk things out calmly instead of lashing out and hurling insults. Open their blind eyes to see that I’m not the enemy and only mean well. Deliver them from the chains of evil, hatred, and anger. Release Your precious blood and heal all the unresolved trauma, pain, or grief in their lives contributing to their destructive behaviors.
Help them see the need for You in their lives. Dispel the darkness from their lives with Your light Heavenly Father. Lord, I know Your love, Faithfulness, and grace know no bounds. I know You have a purpose for all of them. Make Your presence known to them. And it’s in Your Holy name I pray, Amen.
