Day 37: For the abused and the abusive

Reminder: Community-wide Prayer Walk today beginning at the Police Station- 6:30 pm

You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. -Psalm 56:8

Reflect | All too often those abused suffer alone. They are not allowed to let anyone know what is actually going on in their life. The abuser also is alone. Fear and insecurity drive them to find a place they can feel in control. Yet, life is out of control. Only God sees. He is aware of all that goes on.

Pray | Loving Father, we know you know. We know Your heart breaks for the tortured soul forcing their will on another. We know too You are keenly aware of every slap, jab, and joke done at the expense of another. Please wrap Your protective arms around the abused. And hold a mirror up to the abusive. Grant courage for repentance and Your protective peace. We pray in Jesusโ€™ name. Amen
