God of all love, you are the Lord of all creation. As we gather here today let us be reminded that we are women who have been made by you. You formed us in our mother’s wombs. We have been fearfully and wonderfully made. You speak tender words of mercy to us. We ask for your blessing on everyone here. Heal any pain that lingers in our hearts and encourage us with your love. Blessing and glory, wisdom and thanksgiving, honor, and power and strength, be unto you our God, forever and ever. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
