I started almost three weeks ago a series of prayers for survivors of Nazzar’s sexual assaults on hundreds of young girls and women. One prayer each day. It’s easy to be angry initially, but each of these girls and women and their families live in aftermath of the abuse. Let’s not forget them.
I marvel at their strength, courage, and encouragement each of them is for all others who have been abused.
Here is the list of the first 19 prayers. On Twitter here is the key phrase:
