A Prayer for International Women's Day

1703-pax-christi-iwd-thumbOn International Women’s Day, Pax Christi urges us to light a candle for all women peacemakers and use this prayer written by Palestinian women from Bethlehem, Jerusalem and Bethany…

 

 

Dear God
We pray not for us
But for our children
Men and women
Like You
We love them all equally
In every colour and race
We know love
As you taught us
We women
Know you better than anyone
Because we have children
Like You
Our Creator

God, bestow justice upon the world
And peace on earth
Stop the agony of the poor and oppressed
Stop the pain of the sick
Stop evil and give love instead
We pray on this day
From half of the population
To both halves
We love your love
Keep us in your arms
Today and forever

composed by
Palestinian women from Bethlehem, Jerusalem and Bethany, on the occasion of International Women’s Day
