Domestic violence

During COVID-19, domestic violence is more dangerous than ever as families are asked to stay at home together 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. We are asking for your help in two ways. Can you help us get the word out about local services through your newsletters, Facebook pages, services or however you think is best, and can your faith community offer prayers of healing and safety in whatever setting possible?  Below is information about local services, and a list of short prayers in case they help.

Loving God (Loving One), be with all men and women who are in doubt about their intimate relationships. Give them clarity of mind and peaceful hearts so that they can make good decisions guided by Your love. Keep us all safe in our relationships. In Jesus’ name (In Your love). Amen.
