Prayer for Women’s History Month 2013

Spirit of Renewal, God of Many Names, and One Transforming and Abundant Love,

We turn this month, in our nation’s life, to reflect on the stories,

The heritage,

and the struggles,

of women throughout the ages.

We seek to learn from all those voices that have been left unheard.

May we pause before the silences of the ages,

Find who has been left out,

And craft new ways of inclusion,

For every week, and every month.

May this spiritual practice,

Bring out the voices of all those struggling,

All those left apart.

May we let go of our assumptions and cold comforts,

Of what is the normal – to live by,

Unless it be a standard that is rooted in compassion,

In inclusivity,

In diversity.

May this month of reflection teach us to search

for those stories that are different from our own.

Mother of Possibilities,

In the finding,

May we come to know ourselves changed.

Renewed were we are dry,

Hopeful where we are lost,

And open where we are shut.
