Violence Awareness

In his arrogance
the wicked hunts down the weak…
Victims are crushed, they collapse;
they fall under the strength of the wicked.  Psalm 10

Gracious Deliverer,
Who hears the cries of the vulnerable, the murdered, the abused, the bullied, the crushed members of our family?  Are we deaf? Are we blind? Are we heartless? Why are your children so cruel to one another? What is accomplished by blaming victims?

Collect our tears. Tame the wicked. Heal our wounds. Give us peace. Amen
