Day Eight

I cry to you, O LORD; I say, ‘You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.’ Attend to my cry, for I am in desperate need! Deliver me from my persecutors, for they are too strong for me! Bring me out of prison that I may give thanks to your name! ~Psalm 142:3b-7a

Perhaps I can volunteer with a local organization ministering to victims or become a mentor to survivors.

Prayer focus:

  • To have the privilege of connecting with someone who is crying out to the Lord.
  • To be the hands and feet and hearts sent by God to deliver her and represent His compassion for her.
