Dear Heavenly Father,
I am very happy to be writing you this letter. As You know, I was a regular shy kid who was bullied when she was younger. You are the God of the oppressed and the downtrodden. While I don't consider myself oppressed and downtrodden, it does feel that way when you are bullied. I will say a prayer today for all of those who are being bullied and have been bullied. As You also know, I live in a world and in a nation where character seems to matter less and less judging by the actions of many. It also seems to pass down to our kids. I really don't know if it has gotten worse over the years or if technology has given bullies greater avenues to pick on those who couldn't fight back. When I was a kid, I don't remember commercials and public ads about kids being bullied. I guess a lot of people figured out that bullying is a part of life, though not a good one. Then there are the school shootings, which highlighted many issues including bullying. It is a shame that a child cannot find positive outlets or adults that could help a child take care of the situation. I live in a culture that doesn't appreciate You, and that is sad. We as humans cannot do things alone without you, so I ask that You intervene mightily in our nation, especially on the behalf of our children. They need You. We all need You.
