A prayer for girls and women worldwide

On this International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, please pray for women around the world who are subject to rape, domestic abuse and other forms of violence. Pray for healing and justice for victims of these senseless crimes.

Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. (Psalm 82:3-4)
