The key to staying spiritually strong when dealing with toxic persons and spiritual vampires is claiming, reclaiming, and maintaining your power. And one of the greatest things that you can do to have power over these evil and destructive forces and stay spiritually strong is to forgive the person(s) through which these spiritual forces act. Because you are battling demonic spirits and evil forces, you cannot deal with them in the natural sense. To truly forgive requires the power of the Holy Spirit. Forgiveness frees you from the actions that tie you to the toxic person(s) so that you can walk in Your God-given purpose, since you are really targeted to keep you from doing what God has called you to do. Forgiveness brings sweet victory over the enemy. And while forgiveness does not always lead to reunification, you can still operate in the will of God by having kind, merciful, and compassionate thoughts toward the toxic person(s) -things that we all need from God.
Dear Father God,
Thank You Lord for the opportunity to grow in You through forgiving the toxic persons that I have encountered throughout my life. I know it is only through Your Holy Spirit that I have the power to truly forgive and in Your power, Holy Spirit, I forgive them right now. I ask for a spirit of kindness, mercy, and compassion, if only from a distance, towards all toxic persons who have acted destructively in any area of my life. Father God, in complete humility, I acknowledge these are things that I and we all need from You.
In Jesus name I pray,
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
