“International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.” (United Nations)

Father, You made all girls and women in Your likeness and being and know that Your desire is to see them flourish. We pray for girls and women all over the world – for fair opportunities and the realization of their human rights. You are their mighty Helper and Protector. We ask for blessings over CBM’s gender-based programs around the world that help women gain critical access to education, skills training, financial assistance and social support. Lead the way towards a better future for women in the margins.
