Litany for Domestic Violence Awareness

Lord, as we gather this morning,
we are aware
there is a woman shivering in fear in a home that is not safe
we are aware
there is a child begging his parent to stop fighting, to stop beating
we are aware
there is a man making promises he knows he can’t keep without help
we are aware
because your grace has changed our lives
we are aware
because your grace calls us to break these patterns of violence
we are aware
because your grace is working through us
we are aware.
