Prayer For Domestic Violence Victims

fill our hearts with compassion for those women and children who suffer violence and exploitation at the hands of the wicked. Guide us in vigilance so that we may recognize those who need our assistance. Direct our hearts that we might untie the burdens placed upon them and bring them to freedom and safety. We ask this through the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes and in the name of your Son, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. AMEN.

Precious God, love is patient and love is kind. I know that my relationship is missing love when this should be the foundation. I pray against violence, anger and everything bad that seems to entice my partner. I pray that Your love consumes him/her and my relationship because the abuse I suffer is so overwhelming. Lord I cry out to You knowing that You hear me, and I thank You in advance for the shift in my relationship that You will create, Amen.

King of Kings, Your word instructs us on how to behave whilst on earth. I pray that Your word guides my partner so that he/she does not continue to respond with his/her flesh. Lord, we must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger because the anger of man does not produce Your righteousness. Father, I pray that this scripture motivates my partner's actions so that they can treat me the right way, Amen.

God of Righteousness, who executes justice for the oppressed and who gives food to the hungry? It is You Lord, for You see the needs of Your people. Lord I thank You because You set the prisoners free, Lord it is You who sets me free despite my circumstances trying to bind me. I pray against the violence and abuse that I have suffered, I declare that Your love will set me free and will keep me during this painful time. I declare that I will not be oppressed by my partner because You are my God and I am victorious in You, Amen.

Dear God, I pray that You hear my voice and the cries of my heart right now. Your word says that fathers must not provoke their children, lest they become discouraged. Lord I have been discouraged by the violence and abuse I have suffered at the hands of my parent(s). I pray that You please have Your divine way in the heart of my parent(s) and in my household so that violence is no longer something that I am familiar with, Amen.

Prince of Peace, I need more of You right now. I know that You test the righteous, and I stand in my faithfulness to You because You are my God. But I know that Your soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence, I know that it is not okay for me to be abused by my partner. I pray for peace in my relationship, let Your Spirit change the heart and mind of my partner. Allow him/her to see things like You do, Amen.

Oh Lord, You see my heart and You see my current situation. I did not expect my relationship to be this way, and I pray again for love to enter into the heart of my partner. Lord Your word commands husbands to love their wives and to not be harsh to them! I pray that this scripture convicts my partner right now, I pray that he/she does not resolve his/her issues with violence, but instead with love, Amen.

Almighty God, there are so many people who live in darkness as a result of abusive relationships. Help them, Father, to recognize that abuse can take many forms, not just physical, but mental, verbal and emotional as well.

Enlighten them and provide them with wisdom to see when things are not right within their relationships. Where frustration and confusion exist, and even when they feel powerless or fearful, Lord, grant them Your peace. Uphold them with Your mighty and victorious right hand.

In the name of Jesus, I stand against all types of domestic violence and abuse within my family. I bind every evil spirit associated with them.

I command anything and everything that destroys a person's self-respect, self-worth and confidence and leaves them with feelings of low self-esteem and depression, to be removed from my family relationships.
