Families or individuals who have experienced domestic violence and abuse are in the process of healing both physically and emotionally from multiple traumas of the mind, body and spirit. Some of these victims are people we don’t know but others, we may know very closely.
Unfortunately, too many victims suffer and silence and don’t know who or where to turn to. It’s important that we pray for their healing and restoration, turning to the only One who has the power to make all things new. Jesus said, “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Matthew 5:44). He also said, “Do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you” (Luke 6:27-28).
Whether someone persecutes, abuses, hates or curses us, we are called to pray for them. What God is doing with this command is make God a necessary part of enemy love. We are to turn to God when our enemy abuses us. Here are eight prayers against domestic violence and abuse, for the victims and the abusers.
Loving God, be with all men and women who are in doubt about their intimate relationships. Give them clarity of mind and peaceful hearts so that they can make good decisions guided by Your love. Let those who must, discern any abuse that may exist so that they can learn to care for themselves with Your help. Let those who must, acknowledge that they are harming the other, so they can learn to abhor their own behavior and come to true repentance and amendment of life. Keep us all safe in our relationships. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
There are so many people who live in darkness as a result of abusive relationships. Abuse can take many forms, not just physical, but mental, verbal and emotional as well. It’s important that we ask God to enlighten victims and provide them with wisdom to see when things are not right within their relationships. Even when they feel powerless or fearful, God is in their corner. When you pray for these victims, ask God for the strength to share these convictions, the compassion for the abused, and the wisdom to plant seeds that encourage people to think and ponder these serious issues.
Gracious God, You created us in Your image and breathed life into us, a life You want us to live abundantly.
