To mark the 16 Days of Activism Against Violence Against Women the International Anglican Women’s Network (IAWN) are sending daily prayers.
“Stir up your power, Almighty God, and guide us in the ways of justice and truth. Help us to love one another as you love us, that we may be strengthened and renewed by the Holy Spirit to right the wrongs done by those who do not know how to love. Grant our petitions, O Lord, for the sake of Jesus Christ, your Son our Saviour. Amen”.
The Reverend Deacon Nancy R. Crawford
“We grieve the injustices that have been perpetrated against women throughout history, and we affirm the equality that you instilled when you created humanity.
We pray especially for women in the developing world, who are often most grievously affected by war, conflict, and natural disasters.
In your name, Jesus, we stand up against all violence against women. Amen”
