A Prayer for People Who are Being Bullied by Others
Psalm 111:1-4, Ephesians 4:31-32
Father, You are our Rock, Fortress and Savior. You are our Rock in whom we find protection. Lord, You always keep Your promises; You are gracious in all that You do. You help those who have fallen and You lift those who have too much to carry. People everywhere look to You in hope and You give them their food as they need it. When You open Your hand, You satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing. Thank You for being a refuge of safety for those people who are being hurt by others. Thank You for being our Savior, the one who saves us from violence. Thank You for never leaving or abandoning Your people.
Holy Father, Your Word says that we are to treat people in the way that we want to be treated. We confess that we will practice this command and be kind and fair. We will be good friends and tell an adult when someone is being mean to another person. We will not push, shove, or fight. We declare that You, Lord will be the light and salvation for those who are being bullied and mistreated so they will not have to be afraid. We declare that God, You will cause the bad people who go around bullying people to fail in their actions. We confess that Your angels will protect those people who are being bullied wherever they go. We declare that You, will rescue those who love You and will protect those who trust in Your Name.
Holy Spirit, please show me how I can pray for children who are being bullied:
Holy Spirit, please help those people who are being bullied. Send people to help them. Please help the people who are doing the bullying to get help so that they will not continue to hurt people. Lord, give me the courage to tell my parents about anyone I know who is being hurt or bullied.
Father, forgive people who bully others. Forgive us for not always speaking up and telling an adult when we see someone bullying a person. Father, please forgive me for (list any sin that comes to mind). Lord, remind all of us of those we need to forgive; and help us to be quick to forgive. (Take a moment and ask the Holy Spirit to show you names or faces of people that you may need to forgive. As He shows you, say aloud, “I forgive name of person(s).”)
Father, help us all to not yield to temptation; but deliver them from the evil one.
Eternal King, how great are Your signs and how powerful are Your wonders! Your Kingdom will last forever, Your rule through all generations. You are the Lord, the Holy One, Israel’s Creator and King. In Jesus’ name, amen.
