Eye on the world: Prayer for women’s rights

Within the global community the human rights of women vary greatly. Despite all the progress that has been made, in some countries they are still subject to violence and even death. 

Here are some thoughts on praying in support of women’s continued progress:

In “Women’s rights:  expanding visions of hope,” the writer says,”To me, the foundation of negative thinking about women is belief in a limited God. Believing that God is male, with mortal motivations and thoughts, creates a concept of Him as both good and evil. In our prayers we can identify God with qualities of both fatherhood and motherhood, expressed as Life and Love, or Mind and Principle. As we do this, a new sense of completeness and balance will become evident.”
