DV Awareness: Rape and Sexual Assault Awareness

For October’s Domestic Violence Month, I want to share this song video that I found. Rape and sexual assault cause deep wounds to the victims as they experience a violence that destroys part of them… deep within their being where human eyes don’t see. It steals their innocence and instills fear.

Whether it is date rape or spousal rape
where a spouse attacks their own wife…
it is damaging to the victim…
and can affect their entire life.
Or whether acquaintance rape or stranger rape
where the rapist is not known,
its an attack that is experienced
and a violence that is shown.
And many don’t understand,
the brokenness that results.
Because any kind of sexual attack
causes wounds from the insults.
But no one should have to experience
any of these violent attacks.
For only God can heal these deep wounds
caused by these invasive acts.

Dear Lord, I pray that more victims will reach out to You in their brokenness and be rescued from the bondage that holds them tied to these sexual invasions of their past. Bring healing and redemption. You make all things new. You bring beauty from ashes. You are our Source to overcome all that happens to us and I praise You for bringing restoration to all of our lives… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  1. Hey, you 🙂 – how about adding share buttons for Google+, Pinterest, and LinkedIn?
    Another outstanding entry – if I weren’t already madly in love and committed to someone else, I’d marry you. 🙂
    P.S. I asked you to email me – bad girl!

    • Hi Maverick!! Thanks for your suggestions. I am already on LinkedIn. I will have to check on Google + and Pinterest. I really appreciate your support and encouragement. Sorry that I did not email you but I did not see your request. If you emailed me, I have not gotten through all of my emails for this week. Sorry about that. Send me your email and I will respond. Many blessings to you!!
