**December 10 International Human Rights Day **

**Last Day of 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence**

Almighty God, who created all of humanity in your own image: Grant us grace fearlessly to contend against all forms of gender-based oppression and violence, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual; may we reverently seek justice, healing and new life for those who have been victims of such oppression and violence, seeing in all affected the very body of your Son Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
