Healing the hurt of rape and abuse
Rape is an unspeakable act reaching across time, space, and culture to affect millions of people throughout history. It can happen to anyone – even to the daughter of a powerful king.
A study by Interpol has revealed that South Africa leads the world in rapes. A woman is raped in South Africa every 17 seconds. This does not include the number of child rape victims.
If you or someone close to you has been raped, or are at risk of being raped, get help from the Rape Crisis Centre or Life Line counsellor in your area.
Prayer for rape survivors
Lord, I have been hurt and broken.
Heal me from the hurt.
Restore me to wholeness. Amen
