Prayer and Reflection
The Women’s Commission invites you to take a moment of prayer and deep reflection as we continue the work for a more equitable world for all women in our world.
We pray with
• The Samaritan woman at the well: John 4: 27
Just then his disciples returned and were surprised to find him talking with a woman. But no one asked, “What do you want?” or “Why are you talking with her?”
What matters to the disciples is not that this woman is Samaritan, but her gender. Jesus breaks this barrier - and not just in this story.
Reflections and sharing
• Do I see other stories where Jesus breaks barriers regarding gender? Do I break sometimes barriers regarding gender?
• As I align myself in solidarity with women in Decree 14, what is easy for me, and what is difficult for me?
• There are women who are dear to me, who are important in my life story. Who are they? Do I pray for them?
• What blessings do I see?
We ask you to pray for the Women’s Commission as we continue our work.
