Gracious heavenly Father,
on this national Women’s Day in our country, remember Lord, women everywhere.
We pray especially for all those mothers, grandmothers and sisters who work to care for family members in need while forging their own paths in life. May their loving hearts and nurturing spirits be blessed with strength and joy.
 
For those women and children most vulnerable to violence, oppression or neglect, we pray.
For all those who go hungry while others feast in plenty, and for those who struggle to support families in the midst of economic injustice and as a result of the greed and corruption of others, we pray
 
For all who struggle for the basic necessities of life - nourishing food, pure water, fresh air, and adequate housing, we pray!
 
Loving God, you have heard the cries of our mothers, sisters and daughters.  
Now open our eyes to see the immensity of your love for us and the wonder of what you have done for us in Christ Jesus, our Redeemer.
Give us the courage to be your hands and heart for those who are in pain. Give us the wisdom to speak out for justice and righteousness. May your will always be done in us and through us.
 
We thank you for the Ladies Ministries (the various Women’s Associations) and the difference they make to your work, and we thank you for all the work that could be done through our mothers and sisters during many decades in the past.
Bless your daughters today, Lord, have mercy on them and grant us, your sons and daughters, your peace, your grace and your love.
 
Comfort us through your holy Gospel, dear Lord, we pray!
 
In the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Redeemer.
 
Amen.
