Prayer Offered for March 2, 2023

Gracious God of transformation and renewal, as we complete the formal celebration of Black History Month and turn to Women’s History, may we continue to reflect on the stories, the heritage, and the struggles of all women throughout the ages. May we pause before the silence of history and craft new ways of inclusion for the advancement of our civilization. As we listen to those whose voices have been left unheard, may we acknowledge our complicity in failing to notice the gifts, talents, and influence of women in all aspects of society. May our desire for inclusivity and diversity lead us to greater healing and reconciliation for all. And in the words of Ilia Delio, “let us work together to see what is arising ahead of us. Let us turn hope into reality.”—AMEN.

(Rev. Jude Geiger)
