Breaking the Cycle

This is for the many victims of abuse who have been trapped in that cycle of abuse themselves or with their children. Though we may break away from our abusers, our minor children are still trapped in the cycle until laws are changed that will truly protect the innocent and recognize the brokenness that comes with verbal and emotional abuses. Some of our children will recognize the abuses and walk away sooner than the others. But as parents, we can not alienate the other parent, even if they are abusive, because then we would be playing their game. All we can do is pray for our children to recognize the abuse of the other parent and choose to break the cycle by speaking out and stopping contact as they get older if the law does not recognize it. Please join me in prayer for all victims of abuse, that the cycle  of abuse will be broken, and the laws will be changed to protect innocent victims of all abuses.

Breaking the cycle…
is harder than most think.
For many abusers pretend…
then explode in an eye’s blink.
And even when a spouse sees…
and manages to break away…
children are still stuck in abuses…
with many not legally recognized today.
For the legal system only sees…
when cuts and bruises are exposed…
not emotional and verbal abuses…
and its wounds that no one knows.
But that day will come…
when the children will walk away…
no longer wanting to hear the abuses…
and choosing to no longer live that way.
For the verbal and emotional attacks…
will one day cross a line…
then our children will say “no more”…
and the cycle of abuse will be broken in time.
For the Peace and calmness of one home…
will outshine the abuse and turmoil of the other.
And the children will see the difference…
and to our abusers they will no longer bother.
For though we want to speak bad about our abusers…
all we can really do is pray…
for God will give us all the strength…
to break the cycle and finally walk away.

Dear Lord, only You see the countless numbers of innocent victims of  all abuses, even those that are not yet recognized in the courts of man’s laws. But Lord, they are recognized in Your laws and Your courts and we petition Your courts to act in our favor and on behalf of all victims of every abuse. Change the laws to protect all of the innocent for only You see the hearts of every man, woman, and child. Bring deliverance to all victims as You rescue them from their abusive situations. Bring healing to all the broken from abuses and restoration of all that has been lost. Break the cycle of abuse so that our children will no longer follow the ways of our abusers and give each of us the strength and courage to walk away, no longer accepting the abuses of our pasts… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
