Prayer for April 14: Please pray with me. God who comforts, today we pray for victims of abuse. So many have fallen prey, even to those we assumed were shepherds of people – supposed to be protecting them. We cry with these victims, but can’t even begin to imagine the pain and suffering they live with. Lord, grant victims peace, give them courage to speak up, walk with them so they feel your presence, and we beg that you give them safety from further abuse. Give strength and a listening ear to those that work with victims of abuse. We also pray for those who have committed abuse on others. Touch their hearts that they would turn from evil, stop what they are doing and seek help. Amen.
