Prayer Offered for March 31, 2022

God, who created us very good—

Every day is a day to celebrate the splendor, the wonder of all women.

For all that we carry—

Water on our heads, babies in our wombs,

The legacy of our ancestors, dreams for future generations:

We ask for strength in our bones, and love for our frames.

For all that we raise—

The children of our villages, communities of resilience,

Resistant hands, defiant voices:

We ask for the courage to keep asserting,

And a world that honors our being.

For all that we bear—

Violence both physical and emotional, injustices both known and unknown,

The inescapable weight of misogyny, the trauma of generations:

We ask for an end to the forces that tear,

And the force of love to repair.

For all that we are—

Resilient, powerful, loving, hospitable,

Creative, daring, beautiful, valuable, generous:

We ask for fullness of joy, and gladness in our existence.

Grant women around the world reminders this day [and every day]

Of our immeasurable worth,

And Your divine image within us.—AMEN.
