Prayer for abused children
Lord we have seen and heard the children cry and pour out their
suffering and their pain,
They cry to you to rescue them from the abusers and the shame,
That is unjustly heaped upon them as if they were to blame,
while the abusers walk free and unsullied is their name.
Lord bring the abusers to justice and give the children closure, peace and freedom,
May they know they are the most important in your friendship and your kingdom.
To receive a child you said is to welcome and be one with you ,
Inspire us Lord to fight for their dignity and their rights
and give healing and a life that is wonderful and new.
