Praise to you, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, source of all consolation and hope. By your Son’s death and His ascension into the Heavens, He remains our light in every darkness, our strength in every weakness. Father please be the refuge and Guardian of all who suffer from abuse and violence. Comfort us and send healing for our bodies, souls and spirits. Heal the brokenness in all victims of abuse and revive the spirits of all who endure this sin. Make us one with You in Your love as we deepen our respect for the dignity of every human life. Giver of strength, courage and peace, pour Your Spirit upon us all to become all You’ve created us to be. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.
