A Moment of Silence

Father, I come to you this morning in a word of quiet.

Please remember today all the mothers, father, sisters, brothers, cousins and extended family members who lay fallen under the weight and consequences of incestuous choices.

Theirs actions are noted by you. Their steps and conducts of darkness do not escape you.

Is misery their victims grapple with the truths around healing. They know they must walk away from these relationships, but it hurts. They want reconciliation — to be loved by the people they came through.

I pause before you today, Heavenly Father, and remember each one of them — the victims and perpetrators.

Ease the pain and suffering in these situations. Stop the mouth of liars. Bless your people.

Amen
