Grief and Loss Prayers

Prayer for One Who Has Been Raped

Compassionate God, Mother of all, we beseech you to look with compassion upon all women who have been raped. Bless them with tender friends, with gentle moments of laughter in their lives, and a renewed sense of trust in relationships of love. Amen.
