Almighty God, I lift up to you all victims of abuse; those who hurt and those who have been hurt. Send you Spirit to all of my sisters and their children living with abuse physically, mentally or spiritually. Comfort them, hold them, wipe their tears and reassure them that the abuse is not their fault. Let them know they are not alone. Help them to seek or to bring them help, open their hearts to their rescuers, enable them to develop a safety plan and give them the courage to get safe. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
