Prayer for Overcoming Jealousy and Envy

Prayer for Overcoming Jealousy and Envy

Heavenly Father, Dispeller of Darkness and Source of All Love,

In humility and honesty, I come before You today, acknowledging the stirrings of jealousy and envy within my heart. These emotions cloud my vision, disrupt my peace, and lead me away from the path of love and gratitude You have set before me.

Lord, I ask for Your help in removing these destructive feelings. Wash over me with Your grace and fill my heart with Your perfect love, a love that casts out all fear and insecurity (1 John 4:18). Replace my envy with contentment, my jealousy with joy in the successes and blessings of others.

Help me to see myself and my life through Your eyes, recognizing the unique gifts and blessings You have bestowed upon me. Teach me to focus on my own journey, to be grateful for my path, and to use my energies for growth and service, rather than comparison and discontent.

Guide me to understand that the abundance of another does not mean a lack for me, for You are a God of infinite provision. Help me to celebrate the victories and joys of others as if they were my own, fostering a spirit of unity and love.

In moments when jealousy and envy whisper in my ear, remind me of Your promises and Your faithfulness. Let me find my worth and value in You, not in worldly comparisons or fleeting desires.

Instill in me a generous heart, one that rejoices in giving and finds joy in the happiness of others. Transform my perspective, that I may see life as a collaboration, not a competition; a journey we are on together, not a race against one another.

Lord, in releasing these feelings of jealousy and envy, liberate my heart. Free me to love without reservation, to give without expectation, and to live with a spirit of grace and gratitude.

I thank You for Your patience and Your unending love. In the strength and peace that only come from You, I pray to overcome these challenges and to walk in the light of Your love and grace.

In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.


May this prayer guide you towards a heart free of jealousy and envy, filled instead with love, contentment, and gratitude.
