Wednesday, December 10: The Human Rights of Women 


Prayer for the day:

Eternal God, in Isaiah 1:17, you command us to “take up the case of the fatherless” and “plead the case of the widow.” We pray for the UNiTE campaign and all member states, NGOs and UN programmes and agencies working towards human rights of women.  Although it is a long road, we pray that our policy advocacy be fruitful and that together we can effectively work to eliminate violence against women and girls and ensure their full equality. Amen.

prayer by Jamie Yen Tan, intern from Princeton Theological Seminary
