Women's month: Forgive, Forget, and Start Afresh

09 August 2012, 10:54
It’s Women’s Day again; Women’s Month again – and it still happens. Yes, women still get raped, beaten to a pulp, told all the malicious words, undermined at work. Well, as many go out to celebrate Women's Day and Women’s Month, may we take this time to remember all the women who have suffered abuse in the hands of others and otherwise. And my message to those fragile sisters, mamas and gogos, "keep ya head up."

The best thing you can do for yourself on this day is to pray for the release of all those who hurt you. Below is a prayer that I normally pray in order to forgive and forget and start afresh. I believe it will be of benefit to you.

A Prayer of Release (Part 1)

In the name of Jesus the Christ, who went into the deepest darkness and shone his light among the dead, who rose in power to the highest dimensions, I release those I have hurt as I do those who hurt me.

A Prayer of Release (Part 2)

In the name of Jesus the Christ, whose anointing breaks burdens, gives sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, speech to the dump, erection to the crippled, health to the sick, wealth to the poor and life to dry bones, I release those I hate as I do those who hate me. In the Name Unknown to the mind without illumination, I release those that my heart has held hostage, I release my soul from the grave of unforgiveness for he came so I may have life, and life without limitation, life awesome and everlasting. I receive my freedom in Christ, now and forevermore. It is

Let me end with the following poem that I have re-edited in the past few months.

The death of silence

(Dedicated to all victims of male violence)

How will I hurt the woman in future?

When the jar of silence falls to the ground and breaks open?

When crack of dawn spills the beans on my unsightly acts of darkness?

When everyone knows the deeds of my atrocious space of foul-smelling secrets?

How will I hurt the woman in future?

When my mini-skirt excuses reach their looming expiry date?

When I can no longer buy her silence with a packet of bitter sweets?

When I can no longer make her believe it was all her fault?

How will I hurt the woman in future?

When relatives finally know the difference between a crime and a family matter?

When politicians disconnect me from the plugs of their political lifelines?

When police reject my cash offers to make the case disappear?

How will I hurt the woman in future?

When hiding places become fully booked?

When my fellow male species distance themselves from my kind?

When the church raises its voice against the abuse of women?

How will I hurt the woman in future?

When the blue pill fails to erase memories of my lewd violence?

When my accomplices hand themselves over to the authorities?

When all the evidence is screaming my name?

How will I commit hurt on that revolutionary day of reckoning?

When karma pays me an unexpected visit deep in the crux of my severed conscience?

How will I cunningly manipulate the situation ever again?

When the silence dies and the truth is born, eternally?
