Bullying is not acceptable to young people or adults. In its various forms, it poses a grave challenge, leaving emotional and psychological scars on its victims. Prayer remains a weapon against bullying, providing strength, hope and finally, intervention.
Ephesians 6:10-11 (NASB) states, "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armour of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil." Bullying, at its core, is a manifestation of deeper spiritual battles. Standing in faith against it requires that we pray for protection and the transformation of those who inflict pain upon others.
Through persistent prayer, we can tap into God's strength, allowing them to stand firm and resilient against bullying. By interceding for both the bullied and the bully, we embody Christ's love, seeking healing, restoration, and change for all parties involved.
Quote Bullying is not acceptable and can be overcome through prayer.
Lord, help those being bullied to break free of that torment, I pray. Amen.
