Pray with us for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

November 26th, 2014 11:39 am

Father in heaven we praise you that so many people love us.

Thank you most of all for your own great and wonderful love.

Make us loving too grant that we may show our love by helping other people, for the sake of Jesus.

Today we pray for all those women who despite suffering from violence, continue to care for family and children, to grow and prepare food, carry water, earn a living and offer support to others.

We pray for women who are trafficked as domestic or sex workers; for women who are raped and do not know how to find words to name their pain or a way into the future.

We pray for transformation of our societies which often find it easier to judge the victims of violence than to solve the problems of injustice

We pray that women’s voices may be heard and taken into account in all peace and reconciliation work.

We pray for right and just relations between women and men that together we may transform and overcome violence in all its forms and learn to celebrate our diversity and interdependence

God, our loving father, thank you that you never change

Thank you that nothing can ever happen that will make you alter

You are the one true god and maker of all

In Jesus name

Amen.
