Prayer for March 16, 2020: Please pray with me. God who encounters us, open our eyes. Open us to seeing the abusive and unhealthy systems around us. We may even be caught in such a system and not realize it. Put an end to abusive systems Lord. Put an end to passive aggressiveness, manipulation, uncomfortable touch, demeaning language, taunting, and more. These are not normal. They are not your way either. Have mercy when your church and its representatives are guilty of such abuse. Set the captive of such abuse free. And radically reorient those who perpetuate abusive and unhealthy systems. Amen.
