Violence Awareness Month – Love Shouldn’t Hurt


In his arrogance the wicked hunts down the weak…
Victims are crushed, they collapse;
they fall under the strength of the wicked.  Psalm 10

Gracious Deliverer,

 

YOU hear the cries of the vulnerable, the murdered, the abused, the bullied and the crushed.

They are members of our family.

Help us hear their cries. Help us see their pain.  

Give us the courage to do something. 

Stop the violence. Support victims. 

Collect our tears. 

Tame the wicked. 

Heal our wounds. 

Give us peace.

Graceful Redeemer, 

Love shouldn’t hurt. 

Amen
