Heavenly Father, we pray about the scandal that is being uncovered within the French Ice Sports Federation. We are thankful that champion figure skater Sarah Abitbol was ready to share about the sexual abuse she received from her coach. As is often the case, courage fuels courage, and we are thankful for the other champion skaters who have come forward to share of their abuse. Lord God, as perhaps more allegations surface and past handling of allegations is examined, we pray for truth. We pray everyone involved will desire to uncover truth, repent where needed, and begin the process of making things right. We ask for healing for Ms. Abitbol, and the others who were harmed as they trained to be the best skaters in the world. We pray for the accused, that they would receive vindication if they are innocent, but that those who are guilty will truly repent and confess. Please guide investigators and those who counsel everyone involved. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
