Stop bullying—with love
Q: How can I pray about being bullied?
A: I’m so glad you know that prayer is powerful, and that it’s an effective approach to dealing with bullying. That’s what I found when I faced bullying during my first year of high school.
In ninth grade, I joined the high-school swim team after taking a break from the sport for a few years. I was a bit out of shape, and I also didn’t have many friends among my fellow swimmers. This made it challenging to find my place on the team. When I swam in the lane of swimmers that matched my athletic ability, there were a few boys in that lane who liked to make fun of me and harass me during and after practices. When I sought refuge from them in the less-crowded and more elite swim lanes, I was constantly lapped or swum over by the faster swimmers who didn’t have much patience for a lane partner who was out of his league.
