Prayer for an end to domestic violence

Dear God, when I think of a family, I think of a mother, father, and children – all living together and sharing mutual love, concern, and kindness. For some, however, family life is filled with pain, anger, and fear. The harsh reality of physical, verbal, and emotional abuse that is present among so many families is a problem that must not be ignored. Father, guide all people so they do not resort to abuse of any kind in their relationships.

Give those who have difficulty coping with their responsibilities the wisdom and courage to recognize their problems and, when needed, to seek counseling. I ask You also to protect the children raised in abusive families from continuing the harmful cycle of abuse as they mature and become parents themselves. Amen.
