Prayer For Bullying
Oh Lord, I know that my struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the authorities and powers of this dark world. My struggle is against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. I pray that I do not just look at a bully and see a human but help me to understand that this is spiritual opposition. I pray that Your word is the governing authority in my life so that I may be equipped when dealing with spiritual opposition, Amen.
Righteous God, Your word states that blessed am I when people insult me, persecute me and falsely say all kinds of evil against me because of You. I know that in Your eyes I am blessed and highly favored regardless of what people say to me. I am more than the labels that bullies have assigned to me. Thank You for having my interests at heart, thank You for declaring a word over me that is greater than any word man could say over me, Amen
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.
Abba Father, I thank you that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Thank you that I am your child and you care about me. Thank you that you said you would never leave me and you would never forsake me. I pray that you would uproot fear from my heart and fill me with power, love and a sound mind so that I can see this situation as you see it. I pray that you will build up my faith in you and in your word. Give me guidance and show me how to deal with the bullies in my life. When I speak fill my mouth with your wisdom so that I will say only what you want me to say to diffuse the situation and put an end to what is going on. Show me who I need to speak to about the bullying. If there is something I need to do, grant me the wisdom and understanding to do it.
Abba, I want to specifically pray for (name of the bullies) and ask that you would first show them your love. Only you know the heart of each person but I ask that you would save them. Speak to their heart and show them how to stop this. Make them see that this is not of you and there is a better way for them to act. Uproot any pride, fear or insecurities that may be fueling this fire. Bring a change in their heart and mind. Let them focus elsewhere and no longer think of me as a person they want to mistreat or bully. Bring something or someone in their life to occupy their time and take their attention off of me. Let them be totally distracted, preoccupied and consumed by something else so that they don't have time to be bullying me. All glory and honor goes to you in this peaceful resolution, in Jesus Name, Amen.
I need help to stand up to those who have been bullying me and I dont know if I can cope if they keep getting away with it. Please give me strengh to cope with life's difficulties.
We ask for your protection over those who have experienced bullying. Please rescue them from emotional and physical danger, and from the fear associated with this trauma.
We cry out to you use us as your instruments of peace to nourish their souls, to bring encouragement, and to release them from anxiety and the insecurity that comes when we feel weak.
Help these victims to forgive their enemies as you instructed, and may we use our words to pray for blessing upon those who do us harm. May that blessing ultimately be a transformation of heart, which we pray you will grant us all. As counter-intuitive as Your ways are, they are our pathway to freedom.
He reached down from on high and took hold of me, he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes who were too strong for me. They confronted me on my day of disaster, but the Lord was my support. ~ 2 Samuel 22:17
We trust in You to deliver us from trauma, fear, and abuse of every kind, for that is why you came and faced the bullies, religious and political, who crucified you that Passover day 2,000 years ago.
