Thought for November


Thought for November

God of justice, God of mercy, God of healing, we acknowledge the pain and brokenness of our world.
We pray for those who suffer degradation and violence through gender based violence.

We pray for those whose minds are warped by the need to control and imprison others in a world of cruelty and violence as a means towards self-gratification.

Gracious God, we praise you that you are continually at work in people’s lives, challenging and convicting, transforming and restoring,

As Mothers’ Union members, embed deep in us the courage to step out in faith, to stand alongside the victims, to dare the risk of challenging the status quo by speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves.
In the name of Christ. Amen
