Here's a short introduction to the theme for 2020:
Have a look at this diagram - and consider where you feel you fit in - and what each character portrayed needs to do to end bullying.
A PRAYER FOR THIS WEEK (available as a video HERE)
We hold before you those who live in darkness
who choose to bully rather than befriend;
those who attempt to intimidate rather than respect;
those who belittle others rather than build them up;
that their bullying hearts be transformed;
that they will realise that their own fears, painful memories
and past hurts will not be healed by hurting others.
We pray for those who witness bullying
that they will have the liberty of spirit to intervene and support,
directly or indirectly – by seeking help from someone they trust.
We pray for those who are bullied
that they will find comfort, protection and an end to their suffering.
Send them angels in whatever form to let them know it is NOT their fault,
that they are a wonder of creation – made in your image – worthy of love and respect!
And we pray for ourselves,
that we might be vigilant, perceptive, courageous and kind in standing against bullying.
We pray this in your holy name! AMEN
