Prayer

Toxic people

“Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us” (Luke 11:4; NIV).

“But I say, love your enemies!” (Matthew 5:44; NLT).

“Pray for those who hurt you” (Luke 6:28; NLT).

Lord,
Please help me to keep my distance
From people who behave in toxic ways.

Remind me to maintain my boundaries,
Giving them no opportunity
To damage me again.

Help me to pray for them,
And to forgive them
For hurting me.

I ask all this
In Jesus’ name,
Amen.
