Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.

Sizzle, spark, explode -

Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -

The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.

This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.

Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.

Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

Recently, I read an article dated, October 11, 2010, on from titled, "Domestic Abuse: Coming to a Church Near You." It goes on to say, "Christian filmmaker Olivia Klaus goes inside California prisons to hear the stories of survivors of domestic violence who killed their husbands."

On Sunday September 19, 2010, I posted on this blog the topic, "DOMESTIC VIOLENCE" and on the same date, September 19, 2010, "PRAYER ABOUT DOMESTIC ABUSE."

When I read the article from Christianity Today, my soul was encouraged to know that there are Christian people who are helping victims of these horrid existences. Below are re-posts of what was posted here on Sunday September 19, 2010 with yellow highlighting for emphasis.  Also, after the subject re-posts are comments from Timothy relative to the matter.

Thank you for your indulgence and please continue to pray for those ensnared by domestic violence.



Greetings -

Do you believe that enough churches are dealing effectively with domestic abuse issues? There are pastors and church leaders who are verbally and/or physically abusive to their spouses and family members. Abuse victims sit in churches in silent anguish because of the treatment that they receive from their loved ones. Many of those loved ones sit in churches right beside those who they abuse.

I am 54 years old and have only heard about two sermons that mentioned the issue of domestic abuse. Yet domestic abuse is a major and regular occurence in numerous households as evidenced by court dockets and news reports. My opinion is that more churches should minister effectively about this grievous stronghold.

Indeed domestic violence is a very sensitive issue and cannot be handled casually or without some expert training about the sensitivities involved. Love, of course, is necessary in the equation but knowledge of the dynamic is crucial as is wisdom in treatment applications. Our Lord is able to provide the suitable experts to penetrate the viciousness of domestic violence. Let it begin in His sanctuaries. Who will say, "Here am I Lord, send me?"



Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thank You for Your love, care, and faithfulness. This prayer is for abusers, the abused, and those who can help in the matters of domestic abuse.

For abusers:

Lord, Your hand is not shortened that it cannot save; neither Your ear heavy, that it cannot hear. Father, we know that nothing is impossible with You. Draw, please, in the name of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, abusers by Your marvelous love, grace, forgiveness and mercy. Many of them have been abused themselves. Their souls cry out for help but they do not know how to slay the demonic that resides within them. Minister to them, please Father, and quell their inner storms. Reach to the deepness of them and penetrate them to the core of their being and free them from their dark existences. Your Word teaches us Your realities and one of Your realities is that not all shall be saved. I pray this prayer from what JESUS stated in John 17:9, "I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine." Pull their miserable souls, Father, out of the fire.

For the abused:

Father, there is much pain, fear and hurt in the lives of the abused. I call upon You, please, in the name of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to rescue people from abuse. Expose and rebuke their abusers and if they do not forsake their abuses, let justice prevail. Save the abused and give them hearts after Yours. Let them come to You, Lord, with tears flowing so that You can wipe their sobs away. Bind up their wounds and let healing manifest and free them from their horrors. Prove to them that You can minister to their every need in gigantic porportions. Teach them to forgive for indeed there is freedom in forgiveness. Build them up Lord because for so long they have been torn down. Send people to love on them - they need rich relationships. Give them the hope of glory and the peace that passes all understanding. Assure them that You are their rescuer, deliverer, strong tower, shield and buckler. Envelop them in Your secure embrace.

For those who can help:

Father, please, in the name of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, move upon people to help those who are captive in abuse situations. Give sensitivity training to people to reach out to those who live in shame, fear, and rage. Help people to get understanding about domestic abuse. Provide people with skill sets to make major differences in the lives of those who are bound. You are holy, Father, and You have holy people who can dismantle the wicked devices of Satan. You have people who can do warfare against the forces of darkness. We walk in the light and our lights need to be burning. We are not to be as the Levite and the Priest who passed by the one in need. (Luke 10:33). Your Word commands us in Galatians 6:2, "Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ." Let us do it, Lord, according to Your Word. It is our duty as Your vessels of honor.

I ask Lord that You will answer this prayer in manifold ways with bountiful evidence to manifest - because that is your signature style.

Thank you, Lord, - Amen.

Timothy's comments, sent to me via e-mail, on Tuesday October 12, 2010:

When I volunteered as a prayer minister, we would occasionally have women come in, alluding to abuse. I recall one woman who came in, looking like she had been abused all her life. She had written on the request card, "trouble at home."  Norma D. and I had been paired up as prayer ministers that evening. When we got this woman, it was obvious she was troubled. Norma asked her, "What's the matter? You can tell us." The woman looked halfway between us and froze. I said, "I think I'll get a drink of water. I'll see you later." Norma was surprised. But after I left, this woman told Norma a sordid account of what had happened to her for 45 minutes. Norma offered inner healing prayer for her and helped her out a lot. It would have remained buried if I had stayed.

Most churches don't know how to pray for inner healing these women need. Not even the pastors. They are referred to secular psychologists and psychiatrists who don't have the grace and heart of God to be effective. Christian psychologists usually use the secular methods that don't work.

My favorite methods are "Theophostic" by Rev. Ed Smith and "Freedom In Christ ministries" by Rev. Neil Anderson. They can be used by laymen without violating any counseling regulations. They can also be used directly by the hurting. I have seen amazing results using Rev. Smith's wisdom. I have heard of powerful healings from Rev. Anderson's wisdom.

Please learn one or both of these methods.

    Good Morning Sandra,

    As long as I've been going to church I haven't heard a sermon on verbal or physical abuse. So you may be right. Our churches are not doing enough. I recently completed teaching a bible study on marriage that dealt with the issue of anger, verbal and physical abuse. God has some choice words for those who are abusive and provides a way out for those who are abused. It is NOT God's will for any woman or man to be verbally or physically abused. The Lord is totally against violence. He says a perverse tongue breaks down the spirit, and it is His will to deliver the needy from the hands of the wicked!

    BTW ... thank you for commenting on my post. I burned the midnight oil last night writing my next one. It's about God's promise to strengthen us as He does the deer. Thanks.

    Thank you for this post. After a life of abuse, neglect and abandonment, I definately NOTICE when these things are mentioned. Ten years in our current church, I've heard it mentioned exactly twice, as in, "These things are not ok". I believe this is probably my ministry niche, even thought I haven't seen the opening just yet. I believe that when it's time, the Lord will be Faithful to show it.

    I'm 47, and I've not heard a single word from the pulpit, or elsewhere in the churches I've attended about domestic violence.

    This is a hard subject for me, as for most of my married life, I've had to deal with it. Every time I went for counseling the subject would come up, because of things that I would say about what he said, or did. I never knew there was such a thing as verbal abuse until I got married, and had my first son. My husband began to change into someone else, someone I don't know.

    I am in the healing stages of this, and while I am still with my husband, I've learned not to let the things he says hurt me like they used to, because I'm a child of God, and I know that He has a different opinion of me.

    I don't say this to have people feel sorry for me, or to get all kinds of advice about what to do, but to show that it does happen in the church, and yet nothing is being done about it. It's like people put blinders on, and don't want to see it. Of course the families going through it hide it pretty well too, as I know full well. Not many people want others to know what's going on, because it makes them look weak, and because it's ugh... I can't think of the word I'm looking for, but that's what it is...

    I just got back from church and grocery shopping. The woman behind the deli counter, who has always been very friendly and helpful for the many years I've been shopping at this particular store, had two black eyes! I was horrified when I saw her. My heart broke for her. I paused and my son paused as we looked at her in shock. I couldn't help but ask her if she was ok after placing my order. When I asked her if she was ok, she told me that she fell down the stairs and hit her head really hard and she had a cat scan at the hospital and had her eyes checked out and everythin was ok. Afterward, I told her I hope she feels better.

    These stories are often told by abused women who are covering up for their abusers. I felt so bad for her. I ended up praying for her twice after leaving the store. I wish I could've done more to help her. It was painfully obvious that someone pounded on her face. And that should not be. Just horrible!!!

    Hi Judith -

    Your experience today is more striking... because the Lord had me to place the "DOMESTIC VIOLENCE" post this a.m., and then this afternoon, "THE PRAYER FOR DOMESTIC ABUSE" post - and then you post your comment here this afternoon that today you witnessed a victim of domestic violence!

    These situations are so sad. It wounds our hearts to know about it.

    We will keep praying...I believe that our Lord is going into deeper levels of rescue mode about this matter.

    The Domestic Violence posts and comments today, inspired by GOD, are certainly not in vain. We know that His Words never return void!

    I grew up in a town that has a reputation as a Christian town. We had more churches per capita than most towns. So when someone came in to set up a crisis phone line for victims of abuse, some people said that our town didn't need such a service. They had 200 calls on the first day.

    Hi Sandra,

    I'm sure there are reasons why domestic abuse isn't discussed in church but none of the reasons would appear valid in my opinion. Since it isn't often discussed, abusers may come to believe there is an implied condoning of their actions. Abuse like any sin, prefers to hide in the shadows of indifference and tolerance. Thank you for shedding some light on the subject.

    Blessings and peace.


    BTW: Special thanks for sharing the Black Christian News article on the thief returning church property. I read that along with the article on Moorehouse (it seems I haven't been on a college campus in a long time).

    Thank you for your comments. Interesting that you said, "...abusers may come to believe there is an implied condoning of their actions."
