Blue Sunday is always the last Sunday of April’s Child Abuse Prevention Month activities.
People of all faiths will join together in a day of prayer to demonstrate their support for children and families who have been touched by abuse and appreciation to those who help abused or neglected children (www.familynurture.org).
Janet Magee, from the Blue Sunday Child Abuse Prevention Initiative, offers these suggestions on how to pray for our abused children on Blue Sunday:
- Pray the children will be rescued.
- Pray they are put with caring people.
- Pray that their bodies can heal.
- Pray that their minds can heal.
- Pray they find hope.
- Pray for their rescuers.
Remember, Every Child Matters!
