Two out of our three girls are having a difficult time with mean girls at their schools. The wounds a bully can inflict with their words can cut so deep and cause a lot of damage. I came across this prayer last night on the explorefaith iPhone app I use as a devotional, and am praying this for my girls today:
Almighty and merciful God, in your goodness keep me, I pray, from all things that may hurt me, that I, being ready both in mind and body, may accomplish with a free heart those things which belong to your purpose; through Jesus Christ my Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. †
I thought I’d share it with you so you can pray it for yourself or someone you love today.
