On June 19 and June 20, we recognize International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict and World Refugee Day, respectively 

Pray for increased awareness of the need to put an end to conflict-related sexual violence and elimination of stigma where victims are viewed as affiliates of extremist groups. Pray for children who are ostracized because they were borne out of these violent acts.  

Let us also pray for refugees all over the world – for peace, safety and security and continued strength, courage and perseverance for those who are forced to flee for their lives. Pray for governments and individuals to work together to help the displaced.
