God of all people and places,
We offer our hearts and minds in prayer for the world.
Today, we pray specifically for our global sisterhood.
Thank you for the gift of amazing diversity ...
For the rainbow of friendship that stretches from the ends of the earth to the heavens
For the glistening reflection of You we see in each other
For the example of grace we receive from each other
For the wisdom you grant to us through our sisters in Christ.
We admit that it is easy to limit our "family" to those we know, to keep to our familiar ways.
Help us to be ever-reaching, ever-growing, ever-expanding in our definition of sisterhood.
Cover us with your spirit of hospitality and love for our sisters everywhere so that the women of the world might continue to create and model a place of welcome for all.
