Join us for 16 DAYS of Prayer against Domestic & Family Violence from 25 November to 10 December.
This prayer campaign will begin on 25 November which is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (White Ribbon Day here in Australia). It will also coincide with the United Nation’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence Campaign that galvanises action to end violence against women and girls around the world.
As part of the Common Grace 16 DAYS, you will receive daily emails from our team, with statistics, stories and prayer resources, each day covering a different aspect of the wide-ranging impact of domestic & family violence.
Collectively we’ll be learning about and praying for those impacted by and those seeking to address domestic and family violence: from women of all cultures and backgrounds, to women’s shelters, and police and frontline responders. We will also be posting images on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter that can be shared with your social media community.
Together, let’s stand in solidarity with those affected by domestic and family violence – united for the common good, finding common ground and sharing in common grace.
You can see the resources from each day here - why not take yourself through the 16 days.
