God of love and mercy, we offer our prayer with humility and gratitude for your grace. We bring our prayers for those who provide care to women as needed. We bring prayers for all women that they maybe able to experience happiness, fulfillment and empowerment as you intend for all humanity. We pray for those who make and execute our laws that they too will act in ways that are loving and compassionate and recognize the rights of every woman to control her own body. We pray for those whose vision is clouded by ideology and misguided religious fervor. We ask for your guidance and wisdom as we seek to counsel and console, as we seek to educate and inform, and as we seek to protect the rights of all women and all families who seek to have control over their reproductive fortunes.
