March 8, 2019 is International Women’s Day. The United Nations’ 2019 theme, Think equal, build smart, innovate for change, focuses on ways in which we can advance gender equity and the empowerment of women, particularly in the areas of social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure. CBM’s She Matters initiative continues to help empower women and girls all over the world. Please pray for CBM’s global gender initiatives. Pray also for improvement in the factors that cause gender inequity including extreme poverty, and discriminatory practices, and that as a result, women would be given a greater opportunity to fulfil their potential.
