Blue Sunday Day of Prayer…

Ad Best for Blue Sunday 2013 jpgI remember the day I couldn’t stop crying over my grandchildren’s tragic situation.  I would cry, pray and cry some more.  Finally I felt the Lord telling me, “This is the last day of tears.”  From that moment on our ministry changed forever.  In the process of rescuing my own grandchildren I was drafted into the battle against child abuse. During my family’s ordeal I learned of the overwhelming numbers of abused children in my own community, in my state, and in our nation. -Janet Magee-Founder

According to the latest Child Maltreatment Report by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services 1570 children died from child abuse and over 3 million others were also reported as victims of child abuse in one year.  One is too many.

Along with Pastor Ron Corzine, together we recognized that the epidemic of child abuse needed the faith community’s participation in order to heal. With that in mind Blue Sunday, a day of prayer for abused children, was started 14 years ago. What began with 20 churches praying has grown into a national effort with over 2.5 million people committed to pray annually.

Many state agencies across the country have embraced and promoted the day of prayer, a clear sign that the line between church and state doesn’t apply when it comes to child abuse prevention. State agencies need what the church has to offer: people, resources and our prayers. April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. The last Sunday of April is called Blue Sunday. Churches are asked to pray for:

1. The victims of child abuse

2. Those who rescue and serve abused children

3. Direction to become active participants in the fight to end child abuse

Blue Sunday Child Abuse Prevention

We pray because new ministries can be birthed, awareness raised, healing can come, but most of all because abused children shouldn’t have to pray alone.
