Domestic Violence


#1

Please pray for people who abuse domestic partners and children, so they can get the help they need. Pray also for the counselors who help them and for the community to support them as they seek help.


#2

Eternal Father, in the name of Jesus, please give to victims of abuse the grace and wisdom not to allow others’ cruelty to destroy their vision of themselves as loved children of God.

Bring to light the plight of abused children, youth, women and men. Numerous infants, children, adults and elderly are abused or neglected. Rescue the abused from dangerous situations, and provide them with healing and safe environments. Let their grievances cry out for repentance and healing of their persecutors, and plead for their own loving protection.

Heal those who are crushed or wounded and cowed by others’ abuse. Grant grace that their abusers repent of their cruelty and neglect. Please shock and heal abusers into reforming. Surround their victims with Your light and love, and inspire them not to remain victims after the abuse is over.

Our Father and theirs, let it be that all persons, born and unborn, will come to be received with the welcome Christ offers to each person, in gladness, care, hope, blessing and love.

Prayer adapted from the Book of Blessings

Lord God,
Your own Son was delivered into the hands of the wicked,
yet he prayed for his persecutors
and overcame hatred with the blood of the cross.
Grant those who stand against violence peace of mind
and a renewed faith in your protection and care.
 
Protect us all from the violence of others,
keep us safe from the weapons of hate,
and restore to us tranquility and peace.
 
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Dear Lord, help those abusers who injure their family members to recognise their problem and seek immediate help, not in alchohol or in anything destructive but in the You and in a good counselor. Help their families keep safe and free from hatred as a result of their injuries. Bless these families to work together to solve their problems in a good and godly way and never let the abusers remain in their terrible state without turning to You and others for help. May they and their family members find the help that they need from sympathetic and helpful people. I ask this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

***The
Anima
Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from Christ’s side, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee
From the malicious enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That I may praise Thee with Thy saints
and with Thy angels
Forever and ever
Amen ***

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God cast into hell satan and all the evil spirits
who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen

"No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love Him,
God has revealed to us through the Spirit.
For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God…
Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God,
that we might understand the gifts bestowed on us by God.
And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit…"
~Pope John Paul II
