Being a believer and follower of Jesus Christ naturally makes one a primary candidate for the devil’s plans.
The evil one can use even the slightest misunderstanding between you and your workmate to bring enmity.
In such situations, praying to God for them to leave you alone is best because revenge isn’t advisable.
Simultaneously, you should ask God to create a clean heart and renew the proper spirit within you (Psalms 51:10) so that you may not seek to revenge.
Even more, you can write down your feelings on paper and then secretly discard them by ripping them up in pieces or burning them as a symbol of forgiving and letting go of the hurt the person might have caused you.
Remember to allow yourself enough time to heal before resuming some duties, depending on who might have disturbed you.
I believe you will love these prayers to bind your enemies right now.

Though it may be ineffective at first, you can make the above prayer to command the person to never bother you again in Jesus’ name.
Your peace of mind is paramount for you to undertake different duties in your life. You shouldn’t fear, God will protect you:
“Do not be afraid of them; the Lord your God himself will fight for you.” — Deuteronomy 3:22.
Even as you pray, you should remain firm about your decision against the person who is bothering you, as giving them mixed signals will only grant them more confidence to continue messing with your peace.
You can also have some friends, an older person, a community leader, or a security officer help stand against the person bothering you whenever their disturbances appear overboard. Your safety matters!
Are These Prayers for Anyone?
Yes! Anyone who wishes to stop someone from bothering them can pray in faith that God will act on their behalf.

Will the Prayers Take a Long Time to Work?
Well. The duration of prayer to become effective depends on God’s will in your life. However, that shouldn’t make you worried that God may not be pleased by your requests.
Sometimes, a delayed and negative answer to a prayer is meant to prepare you for more significant outcomes while God tests your patience, faith, and trust in Him.
All you need to do is maintain unshakeable faith as you pray, believing God will answer you positively soon.
Can I Start Praying Right Now?
Absolutely! You can start praying as soon as now if someone has been bothering you.
While believers can pray at any time of the day and as many times as they wish, they must have immense faith in God through their prayers.
Furthermore, you should always act accordingly to His word as proof of your faith because, without the appropriate actions, the prayers may not be effective.
God Will Help You!
No one loves being bothered. While the disturbances may appear petty to your friends whenever you express yourself, you’re the only one who truly understands how much emotional and mental stability they might be causing you.
Hopefully, the above prayers will stop someone from meddling so your happiness may be restored. Remember to exercise ultimate faith with good actions because “faith without actions is dead.”
