Pray For Women at Risk of Violence

Join us in praying for women and girls around the world who are subject to violence. Pray for women who suffer the atrocities of rape or domestic abuse. Ask for healing and justice for victims.

In many countries, long standing traditions and cultures that hold women in low esteem make it even harder to speak out against sexual abuse.

For example, in Kenya, nearly 1 in 3 girls experience sexual violence - but the crime is rarely reported due to social stigma.

Corruption and poor policing mean that women have little if any confidence they will be taken seriously, if listened to at all. Women and children feel helpless, they don’t know who will fight for them.

“Loving God, we lift all victims of abuse to you. We ask you to give them your love and protection.

We ask for your courage and strength, so we can speak up against the violence inflicted upon your precious people. Help us to see situations where violence is taking place and give us wisdom to know how to act.

Heavenly Father, we lift every girl and young woman to you who has suffered or witnessed violence. We pray for justice in each of these situations and provision for a safe place where they can find healing. We ask this all in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

"Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked." Psalm 82:3-4
