A PRAYER FOR THE BULLIED
“Rescue me from evil people, O LORD. Keep me safe from violent people. They plan evil things in their hearts. They start fights every day. They make their tongues as sharp as a snake’s fang. Their lips hide the venom of poisonous snakes. Selah
Protect me from the hands of wicked people, O LORD. Keep me safe from violent people. They try to trip me.
Arrogant people have laid a trap for me. They have spread out a net with ropes. They have set traps for me along the road. Selah
I said to the LORD, “You are my God.” O LORD, open your ears to hear my plea for pity. “
I believe that everyone has been bullied at some point in their lives. It may have taken the form of physical, verbal, or emotional. Whatever form it took it still caused us pain.
A bully uses superior strength or influence to intimidate someone, typically to force them to do what the bully wants. It can happen in any social setting such as: homes, work. school, and social media.
If you or someone you know is unable to escape from being bullied, seek help. I’ve added a link below that may be of help.
Check yourself. Are you a bully?
