A Prayer for Victims of Abuse

Loving God
We pray for our brothers and sisters
who have been abused within our Church.
We recognise and acknowledge
the unending strength of victims and survivors;
their boldness has been an immense gift,
and we pray they find justice and peace.

We pray for our community;
that we accept and nurture each other
during this time.

Empower us to be a positive
and supportive force within society.
Help us to witness the love of God for all.

Help us to acknowledge and make amends for past wrongs.
Give us the strength to be true advocates
for the wronged and vulnerable.
May the grace of God guide us during this time.
We offer this prayer through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
