Could we please pray for children, young people of whatever age being physically/emotionally/mentally abused by their peers at schools, and through web abuse. Some abused children already have enough difficulties and challenges with health or conditions that make them seem different. Bullying or abuse causes misery and fear, and results in damaged lives and sometimes, as in two recent cases, suicide.
Holy Spirit, please pour the spirit of compassion into the hearts and minds of the young; and give courage to them not to succumb to the peer pressure of those whose hearts are hardened, so that they do not participate in abuse of anyone.
Please, into hearts of stone, put hearts that are healed and can receive and give love to both the strong and the vulnerable.
Dear Jesus, please protect all who are shy, or diferent, or battling difficult conditions. Help them to flourish.
Heavenly Father, protect all Your children from abuse and neglect, for You love each as much as if each were the only one.
God, I trust in You, that You will hear our prayers for all Your children.
