Tackling peer pressure—with prayer
Q: How can I pray about peer pressure?
A: One of the toughest things about dealing with peer pressure is that it seems like you don’t have many options. Either you give in and let other people control your life, or you say no and feel excluded. So the very fact that you know that you can pray about this issue is really helpful. As I’ve seen in my own life, prayer can open us up to solutions to peer pressure that actually bless everyone.
In college, I had a fun group of friends that I hung out with. While we enjoyed doing lots of things together, sometimes the conversation turned to the subject of girls—and not in a complimentary way. Judging the way they looked, making fun of their friends—all topics and conversation I was extremely uncomfortable with.
