16 Days of Activism - Day 10

One in three women worldwide will suffer from some form of violence in their lifetime. Of these, one in five will become a survivor of rape or attempted rape in their lifetime.


Feza from Mwanda, Bukavu was a victim of rape. This is her story. “Two men raped me in front of my husband. I was taken to the forest and for three days I was raped by many men.

Take our stories and tell everyone what is happening here. The world thinks it knows-but it doesn’t know. This isn’t a story of war this is our lives now. If the world is bored with the story, then they have forgotten how to be human.”


Pray for Feza and others like her, to find emotional and physical healing after rape.


Merciful God,


We offer prayers for those like Feza who are suffering through the effects of gender- based violence. Those with broken hearts and lives, bless them with healing. Change their circumstances. Cause peace and prosperity to come to them in abundance. We who have plenty, pray that we may share the richness of our souls as we share our resources.

In Jesus’ name we pray,


Amen
