Lord, I pray that you guard these students from those who bully or tease because of their own insecurities. As iron sharpens iron, may they choose friends wisely, always asking you to lead them and guide them in their relationships. Please help them to be slow to anger and quick to listen. You have promised to give wisdom when we ask, so prod them to speak up when their words can make a difference. Show these students how to be a blessing to their friends, to stand up for them and to take initiative in helping others, in times of discouragement. Help them to know that…”No matter who you are, no matter what you’ve done, there will come a time when you can’t make it on your own.” That’s when we must turn to Jesus because he’s waiting, he longs to have us call on him.

God said…”Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”     Hebrews 13:5

Glory to God,

Mr. P.
