DAY 37: Friday, November 6

TOPIC: Abused and Abusive

SCRIPTURE: “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” – Psalm 147:3

OBSERVATION: Today we are mindful of people who have been abused. Those who have suffered abuse are often filled with shame, fear, anger and hopelessness brought about by the abuse.

PRAYER: Father, we pray for the abused. Those who are isolated, silenced, hurting and scared. We ask that you help them find courage and strength to ask for help. We know that only you have the power to heal them completely. Please use us as your instruments to lovingly care for them as they heal. Lord, we also pray for their abusers. You who are the true light, we pray that you lighten the darkness within the abusers. We pray that they are able turn their lives over to you and end the cycle of abuse. Amen
