Prayer Offered for March 20, 2023

As we pray today in thanksgiving for many distinguished women leaders in our state, I begin by quoting from a song called “For Good,” from the musical Wicked:

I’ve heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason

Bringing something we must learn…

I know I’m who I am today because of you...

You’ll be with me

Like a handprint on my heart.

And now whatever way our stories end,

I know you have re-written mine.

And because of you, I have been changed for good.

God of generosity and mystery, we bless and we celebrate the women being honored here today for their lives of passionate and dedicated service for the common good. By their courage, patience, and inclusive creativity, they have modeled for all of us how to live lives of integrity and devotion. May they experience the rewards for their work in seeing the good they have accomplished. We ask this in Your name.—AMEN.
