A Prayer for the Healing of our Diocese and for Survivors of Abuse
You are the still centre of life
who hears the call of those who suffer.
You are the voice of calm in the clamour of distress
who guides the lost through confusion.
Help us hear the voices of the victimised and abused.
Renew our diocese after the damage that has been done.
Restore our faith and rebuild our hope,
that we may be inspired to respond to the hardships of others.
Make our parishes
families that welcome those who search,
help those in need,
support one another,
and witness to your truth and love.
