Abuse Response & Prevention Worship Resources

2020
From the Mennonite Central Committee's Abuse Response and Prevention website: "Worship is the way we gather to celebrate our common faith. In worship we talk to God about who we are; in worship we discover who God is calling us to be. When there is violence in our world, we need to be talking about it to God in worship.

We can encourage the church to talk about abuse in our worship services. Many congregations regularly pray for governments, for homeless or hungry people or for those who suffer from war. We can also pray for children who have been sexually or physically abused or people who have been assaulted by their partners.

We can pray for men who have or are assaulting women and children. We can pray for support workers in counselling centres, health facilities and shelters. We can pray for governments to make wise policy decisions and to protect the vulnerable. These prayers remind the congregation that we are called to help create a peaceful world where people can live free of abuse."
