A Prayer for Domestic Violence posted by Mark Herringshaw on his blog Prayer Plain & Simple

“God of peace, there are many places and many people who do not experience your peace. Right now there are many, many women and children who live under the dark weight of the fear of violence right in their own homes. We pray for your protection, and for wisdom for friends and officials to help bring that right protection to them. We pray for the many men who themselves feel powerless and confused about their relationships. We ask that you would help them find healthy ways to work out their frustrations and to find hope without resorting to destructive impulses. God, work in our country to stem this epidemic. We ask for your perfect peace…”

Unfortunately we are seeing the rise of abusive relations in young teenage girls as well as adult women. As we pray for them let us teach them to love themselves as God loves them. Review Karla Downing’s article below.
