Prayer for Monday, February 25th, 2019

 

LEADER:       In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

 

Good morning and welcome back from the winter break. This Wednesday is a special day where all of us are encouraged to wear a certain coloured shirt.  Does anyone know the name of this day? (pause for answers).  That's correct, it is Pink Shirt Day. 

 

Pink Shirt Day started in 2007, when a grade nine student in Cambridge, Nova Scotia was bullied by classmates for wearing a pink shirt to school. Taking notice, two students rallied their peers to send a message to the bullies. The next day, the halls were filled with students in pink T-shirts. Pink Day started because two boys chose to do something about bullying rather than stand by and watch it happen. Now the movement is worldwide, educating and inspiring others to stand together and take action against violence and bullying.

 

The theme for this year's Pink Shirt Day is "Be Someone's Hero."  You can be someone's hero by standing up against bullying in your classroom and school. It is the right thing to do and it is what Jesus would want us to do.  Let us pray.

 

LEADER:       The response to the intentions is Lord, hear our prayer.

 

ALL:              Lord, hear our prayer.

 

LEADER:       For the victims of bullying that they would experience the love of God and the love of their classmates. we pray to the Lord.

 

ALL;              Lord, hear our prayer.

 

LEADER:       For those who are tempted to bully others, that they would realize that this is not the way Jesus would want them to act.  We pray to the Lord.

 

ALL:              Lord, hear our prayer.

 

LEADER:       For our school, that we would be peaceful, inclusive, noble and kind in the way we treat one another.  We pray to the Lord.

 

ALL:              Lord, hear our prayer.

 

LEADER:       For all of us, that we would have the courage to stand up to bullying and therefore be someone's hero.  We pray to the Lord.

 

All:                Lord, hear our prayer.

 

LEADER:       We make our prayer in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

 

ALL:              Amen.
