Prayer of Thanks

Today we stand in solidarity with the victims and survivors of clergy child sexual abuse in the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle.

We give thanks for the work of Michael Elliot, John Cleary and Bishop Greg Thompson, the current Bishop of Newcastle, to bring these very dark deeds into the clear light of day.

We give thanks for the continued work of those involved in the Royal Commission, hearing about the worst of human behaviour and sitting with those who are suffering as a result of heinous and horrific actions of people who had power over them.

On behalf of us all, we pray that you would continue to give them strength to do your work to promote urgently needed cultural change and reduce risk to vulnerable adults and children.
