“Come, Holy Spirit of God, arm me with Your power to protect me against the envious, who want to harm me and my family”
Blessed are you when you slander them, when they persecute you and falsely speak all the evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so persecuted the prophets who came before you. “
In our lives, we often think that evil does not exist and so we do not protect ourselves. We can be victims and, even if against our will, evil agents. How many times have you not gotten yourself wishing for the good that someone has acquired? Yes, evil exists and we have to be vigilant against any feeling that does not come from God. How to do this? Through prayer, which is our greatest weapon against all evil, especially envy.
Below is an example of a simple and beautiful prayer that has been circulating on the internet. Its authorship is unknown.
Prayer against envy
In this moment that I am in prayer in Your arms Jesus, I ask The grace to be free of this poison that is the envy, brought to the world by satan. Lord, I ask you to come to the aid of my weaknesses and my frailties.
I surrender with all my heart to You, Lord, every moment that I have experienced the feeling of envy, whether with friendships or material goods. I ask you, Holy Spirit, to come upon my heart and my life, freeing me from the roots of envy.
Come, Holy Spirit of God, give me a pure and simple heart that rejoices with what I am and what I have. Come, Holy Spirit, open my eyes to the riches that I possess.
Come, Holy Spirit of God, shield me with Your power to protect me against the envious, who want to harm me and my family.
I renounce ALL ENVY in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
