Prayer

Toxic

Toxic 

Their tongues sting like a snake (Psalm 140:3; NLT).

Like lions they open their jaws against me, roaring and tearing into their prey (Psalm 22:13; NLT).

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my saviour; my God is my rock in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety (Psalm 18:2; NLT).

It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built (Luke 6:48; NLT).


Lord,
Please help me to recognise
Toxic people –

The selfish ones
Who drain me,
Giving nothing in return;

The angry ones
Who make me anxious
And afraid.

Help me to stand firm with you,
So I can protect my boundaries,
And stay away from toxic relationships.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
