Justice, Peace & the Integrity of Creation

Prayer for Girls and Young Women

We pray for your daughters around the world, Creator God,
As they wake up to days of work, carrying water, caring for younger children, working in the fields;
As they are denied opportunities for study as they watch boys go off to school;
As they face violence when they do have an opportunity to attend schools and engage in learning;
As they are bartered into sexual slavery;
As they deal with abuse in their families and communities.

You have created us all with gifts and potential, Creator God,
so we can flourish as humans and contribute to the common good.
We pray for all girls, in all countries and regions of the world,
That they, too, may flourish and develop their gifts,
That they may grow with grace and dignity,
That they may bring their talents and skills
To create a world where everyone may thrive
And flourish as a child made in the image of God.  Amen.

(Jane Deren, Education for Justice)
