Dear God,

I pray that you watch over all of the children who are being bullied today. I pray that you keep them safe from harm and pain, and that you fill their lives with love and joy.

I pray for the parents of these children who are being bullied, that they may find peace and comfort in knowing that you are always with them and will never leave them alone.

I pray for the bullies themselves, that they may realize what they have done was wrong and seek to change their ways. I pray they realize how much damage they have done, and how much they have hurt the people around them by bullying them. Forgive them, Lord, for they know not what they do.

I ask this in your name, Amen

Dear God,

Please help the children who are bullied. Please help them to see the light and see that there is more to life than the pain they feel. Please help them to find their way, and to find their voice. Please help them to know that you are with them always, and that you will never leave them.

I ask this in Jesus’ name.

Dear Lord,

I come to you today with a heavy heart. I ask for your guidance and wisdom in helping me through the difficult time I am facing.

I have been bullied at school and have been made fun of by my classmates and teachers. The bullying has continued for so long that it has become normal for me. I know that the people who are doing this to me do not realize how much pain they are causing me but it hurts so much.

I don’t want to go to school anymore because of this but I know that is not an option because school is important and if I want to get a good job when I grow up then I need a good education. But right now, all I want is for someone else to go through what I am going through so they can understand what it feels like. My family doesn’t understand either because they think everything is fine when it really isn’t.

Lord, please help me find a way out of this situation without having to resort to violence or drugs or alcohol so that my future won’t be ruined.

Dear God,

Please help me to find the strength to stand up to bullies in my life. Thank you for giving me the gift of courage and strength. You have given me everything I need to get through this difficult time in my life with dignity and grace. Thank you for being there with me when I needed you most.


God, help me to see my own worth.

Help me to know that I am worthy of love and respect.

Help me to stand up for myself and others who are being bullied.

Help me to speak out against bullying, even when it’s uncomfortable or inconvenient to do so. Help me be brave enough to speak up when I see it happening around me.

Scripture Reading:

Psalm 111:1-4, Ephesians 4:31-32

Scriptural Prayer:

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.

The Prayer of Jehoshaphat Against Bullies

2 Chronicles 20:5-12

You may have heard of the Prayer of Jabez. You may have even heard of the Prayer of Jesus. But have you heard of the Prayer of Jehoshaphat? The Prayer of Jehoshaphat is the prayer against bullies. In  2 Chronicles 20, the enemies of Israel have come together to destroy the people of Israel. The sheer number of military might surely scared King Jehoshaphat. He was so afraid that he decided to seek God and he called the people of God to fast and seek God with him (2 Chronicles 20:1-4).

So Jehoshaphat stands before the temple in Jerusalem in the courtyard and prays publicly to God for help (2 Chronicles 20:5). This is not just a public appearance for political sake. The king knows that he is outnumbered and outgunned. He knows that this could be the final hour for his kingdom. So Jehoshaphat prays. Jesus’ prayer is about promotion of the church (John 17:1-26). Jabez’s prayer is about procuring of more influence (1 Chronicles 4:10). The Prayer of Jehoshaphat is about protection from bullies.

Bullies are people who taunt and harass you to tear you down. They try to insult you just to make themselves look and sound better. Just like you, I have had to pray for help against the attacks of the bullies in my life. Here, we see four elements of the prayer of Jehoshaphat against bullies.


1. No one can stand against You, God (2 Chronicles 20:6)

“He said: Yahweh, the God of our ancestors, are You not the God who is in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations? Power and might are in Your hand, and no one can stand against You.” (2 Chronicles 20:6, HCSB)

No one can stand against God. God can never be bullied. This is the assurance that Jehoshaphat relies upon. He can count on God.

2. I need You (2 Chronicles 20:9)

““If disaster comes on us—sword or judgment, pestilence or famine —we will stand before this temple and before You, for Your name is in this temple. We will cry out to You because of our distress, and You will hear and deliver.”” (2 Chronicles 20:9, HCSB)

Whenever difficulties or disasters come, I should realize that I need you. In times of distress, I need your help to deliver me.

3. I treated them well, but they are bullying me (2 Chronicles 20:10-11)

“Now here are the Ammonites, Moabites, and the inhabitants of Mount Seir. You did not let Israel invade them when Israel came out of the land of Egypt, but Israel turned away from them and did not destroy them. Look how they repay us by coming to drive us out of Your possession that You gave us as an inheritance.” (2 Chronicles 20:10–11, HCSB)

Now Jehoshaphat narrows his prayer to a specific concern. The very people his nation has helped has decided to turn and hurt him and his country. His nation is being bullied by other nations. This is the specific distress that he is under.

When you and I are being bullied, we need to identify the bully. We need to call them out for what they are. We need to stand up in prayer and let God know that we are bullied. Being bullied shows me that I need help to fight and that brings me to the last part of the prayer.

4. I can’t fight and win against them. Please fight them for me (2 Chronicles 20:12)

“Our God, will You not judge them? For we are powerless before this vast number that comes to fight against us. We do not know what to do, but we look to You.” (2 Chronicles 20:12, HCSB)

When I am in distress and I identify the bullies in my life, and I pray to God and tell him that I can’t fight them without His help. then I need to pray for the miracle. I need to pray for the part where God has to fight the battle for me. Next, I pray for the answer that God can give in this situation. Then, I end my prayer by saying: “Look, I don’t know what to do. All I can do, God is look to You for help.”

After that, I wait for the answer. God will answer the prayer. In Jehoshaphat’s case, God did answer the prayer. His answer was very clear: “The battle is not yours, but Mine. Trust me!” (2 Chronicles 20:15).   

When you are being bullied, you can count on God to stand in for you and fight for you. In this case, God turned the bullies against each other (2 Chronicles 20:22-23). But no matter how God stops the bullies, you can be sure that He will.
