Merciful Lord, thank you that you are the God of faithfulness. Even when we fail, you never let us down. You have said that where two or three are gathered in your name, you are there with them. As we gather together as women today, we are grateful that you are in our midst. In everything we do together, we pray that our eyes would remain on you and we would listen carefully for your voice. To you be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
