Prayer for Daybreak, (Surah al-Falaq) chapter 113 in the Qur'an is recited to seek God forr efuge from the evil and envy from outside.

This Surah also tells us to seek refuge in Allah from the evil-doers, such as those who indulgein sorcery and other forms of secret witchcraft. Since Allah is the Ultimate Authority, once a person is in His Protection, no worldly or outworldly power can do any harm to that person.
