Prayer for Survivors:
Compassionate and merciful Father, I thank you for this day. I thank you for the sunshine. I thank you for the shining of your son Jesus, whose Light shines in us and through us, touching every layer of our beings, body, mind and spirit. I thank you for all of the days of peace and love and light that you have given me in the past and I thank you for all of the days of peace and love and light that are to come.
I thank you for the gifts of the Holy Spirit that you gave me at Baptism: Faith and Hope and Love. Knowlege and Wisdom and Discernment. And Healing. Increase these gifts in me now, Lord. I have been hurt and broken, and I am a leaky vessel right now. I need constant filling. I know You love to help me, Lord, so help me now.
Heal me from the hurt. Restore me to wholeness.
I see myself whole and healed, radiant with Your Love. Serving You.
I pray this prayer in the Name of Jesus and in the Power of the Holy spirit and I say, amen, it will be so.

A Prayer of Healing
God of the universe, God of all creation, I humbly come before you in the name of Jesus to pray for healing and restoration of all people who are victims of rape, incest and sexual assaults. I call upon you the God of mercy and grace. Lord, we need you. I ask you to give ear to my cry for the broken and hurting. Let them feel the warmth and truth of your love. Break all hindrances to their healing.
God , I ask you to reach the very depths of their pains, to the core of their sorrow and hurt. Heal, mend and restore their souls. Draw them out of the depths of darkness, draw them out of the nightmares of trauma into your peace, warmth and light. Restore what has been stolen. Restore their virtue. Restore physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. Restore the mind to comprehend, reason, understand and think once again. Restore the heart to feel the warmth of love again, to embrace the good in life. Take the survivors through their journey to the other side of health and restoration. Give them the strength and hope to endure. Carry them through this season to your time of deliverance into a new life.
Hear the cry of the children that cry out to you day and night. See the invisible tears in their eyes, feel the pain in their souls. Deliver them from the evils in their life. Heal the child that is now an adult but still a child in pain and torment inside.
God , I ask you to give hope where there is no hope. Bring peace where there is no peace. Restore joy where there is no joy. Where there is depression, sadness, emptiness, hopelessness, darkness and voids fill with your love, hope, peace, joy and life. Connect everyone with others who have hearts of compassion and empathy for victims of rape, incest and sexual assaults. Connect with others who have taken this journey and understand the traumas, torments, trails and triumphs. . Give voice to the voiceless, strength to the strengthless. Help those who are strong to carry the weak until they too become strong. Connect us as a community of survivors and strengthen us to be a force to be reckoned with.
God I thank you for healing and restoration. Your Word says ” Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Matt 7:7-8) . I ask these things in the mighty name of Jesus and we thank you for giving us our petition. In Jesus name. Amen!
Prayer for Protection
God. I thank you that your ears are open to our prayer. I come to you on behalf of the many souls that are targets of incest, rape sexual assault and abuse. I come to you on behalf of the many women and children that are looked through the lustful, perverted eyes of a predator. I come to you on behalf of the many women, children and youth who are the fantasy of some sick man or woman who desires to violate their souls to satisfy their own abominable desires.
I humbly ask you to protect all that are targets. Protect the innocent and naive. Have mercy, Lord on their souls. Protect them from the predators and attackers of their souls. Protect them from evil men and women who come as shepherds but are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Protect them from lustful men and women who are concerned more about satisfying the evil hunger within themselves than the horrible damage they will cause their victim. Protect them from manipulative, seductive and cunning spirits that lurk in the darkness waiting for their prey. Protect them from the family members that are overcome with their own lust and take advantage of opportunities to commit rape and incest.
I ask you God to hide these women,children and youth in your secret place. Put a shield about them so no harm or evil will come to where they are. Protect them at night. Put an invisible lock on the door of their souls that evil will not be able to penetrate or break through. Give them a discerning spirit and put an alarm within them to warn of danger. I ask you to watch over them and keep them safe from sexual attackers, abusers and predators.
I thank you for answering my prayer and delivering from all evil. I thank for your protection In Jesus Name. Amen.
