Almighty God, we pray that You will bless our work in mission and ministry in the
world. We give thanks for the gifts of joy and wonder to be found in Your works. Make us
so thankful for the power of Your love, given through Your Son, Jesus, that we may pray,
labor and give liberally to make known that love throughout the world.
We are women and girls of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, who offer You our
ministries at home, in the workplace, community, and school. Bless us that our lives may
shine forth the joy and wonder we share in Your Name, Amen.
