Women are powerful agents of change. In a generation where equity and inclusivity are vital conversations, women leaders and decision-makers are increasingly recognized in all spheres.
However, despite the rising recognition, women are still vastly under-represented in decision-making in politics, businesses, and communities. Here is a prayer to help women in leadership positions have discerning decisions and policies in a male-dominated world. (Read: Pope Calls for More Women Participation in Church Affairs)
A Prayer For Women Leaders
Gracious God, we pray for ourselves and all women as leaders.
Give us and them, open hearts and opportunities to serve.
Give us and them, listening hearts so that your words flow through us as we talk, teach, serve and lead.
Give us and them, the courage to step outside of our plans and programs if you have another path for us to take, as well as the discipline to stay on course amidst distraction and interruption.
We pray for the capacity to welcome all people with love and warmth.
Give us and them, patience, endurance, and fortitude.
Keep us and them, healthy, rested, and full of joy from beginning to end. Amen.
Prayer from Catholic Women of Australia.
