The Woman’s Prayer (from the Episcopal Women’s History project https://www.ewhp.org)
O God, Creator of all life, bless the unsung lives of countless Christian women in every century who were your hands and feet, who kept alive your compassionate presence by feeding the hungry, nursing the sick, clothing the naked, comforting the sad, praying and petitioning, strengthening those in prison, teaching the stories, sewing and singing, weeping and rejoicing. Grant us the wisdom to discern our ministries in this day as our foremothers found theirs; lead us in new and timeless forms of discipleship; and let us joyfully find our place in this procession of praise, offering our varied gifts and voices together with them and Mary, the Mother of our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen

TELLING STORIES: PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE
Our Mission Statement: The Episcopal Women’s History Project honors women’s ministries in the Episcopal Church by listening, recording, and continuing to tell their stories.
The Episcopal Women’s History Project now enters its Fortieth Anniversary. The months from June 2020 through July 2021 will be a celebration of this EWHP. During The General Convention of the Episcopal Church in 2021 in Baltimore, there will be a Church Wide acknowledgement remembering history and planning the future of The Episcopal Women’s History Project!
