We come to You today seeking Your wisdom, guidance, and protection. We lift up all the women in our lives—mothers, sisters, friends, and those who are struggling. We ask that You would give them strength to face their challenges with courage and grace.
We pray for the women who are experiencing the pain of infertility, that they would feel Your comfort and that You would open the door for them to have children.
We pray for the women who are facing difficult marriages, that they would feel Your love and that You would bring healing and restoration to their relationships.
We pray for the women who are single, that they would feel Your presence and that You would bring them a Godly partner.
We ask that You would empower all women to live according to Your purpose for their lives. That You would give them a vision for how to use the gifts and talents You have given them for Your glory. We pray that You would give them wisdom to navigate the complexities of this world, and the ability to discern Your will for their lives.
We pray for those women who are facing persecution for their faith, that You would protect them and give them the courage to stand firm. May they know that You are with them always and that You are working everything together for good.
Thank You for the unique and special way that You created women. We praise You for the beauty and diversity that You have placed within them. We trust You to lead them on the path that You have chosen for them.
In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.

Proverbs 31:10-11 ESV
An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will have no lack of gain.
Isaiah 54:4-5 ESV
“Fear not, for you will not be ashamed;
be not confounded, for you will not be disgraced;
for you will forget the shame of your youth,
and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.
For your Maker is your husband,
the Lord of hosts is his name;
and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer,
the God of the whole earth he is called.
1 Peter 3:3-4 ESV
Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.
Titus 2:3-5 ESV
Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.
