As hard as that can be, it's the only way to go. You can't defend yourself against nasty lies, etc., you must keep some sanity and pray for those people. Prayers to you mean girls, bullies, & women who have pure evilness in your heart... Crazy how bullies can help make you a better person and strengthen your ability to not be like them. Thank you!
Never thought of this, but it makes sense: why not ask for the grace to accept God's mercy and abundant love for us? If we can pray "Lord, I believe; help my unbelief," and the Psalmist can pray for discernment, then we can pray for this sort of thing, too.
