Lord God, we are gathered together today
to give you praise and thanks
for your loving kindness to us.
Make us aware that it is not just what we do that is important
but how we do it.
Help us to be courageous, strong, caring,
passionate and compassionate
whatever our age, race or circumstances.
Let us bear witness to your love for all people
so that we may be
peaceful and joyful women.
