A Woman’s Psalm
O God, I am a woman in a violent world let me know your peace.
Let blind rage born of despair not find its target in me.
Let the value of my life not be reduced to the jewellery I wear.
Let my family life not end that life in a gang may begin.
Let rape not violate my body nor anger ravage my soul.
Let fear not enter my heart but caution sharpen my mind.
Let the light of Christ so shine in me that I may reflect your love.
Let the joy that the apostles knew infuse my spirit and alleviate my pain.
Let Love who suffered and died on the cross find resurrection and new life in the world you love.
God, I am a woman in a violent world - let me know your peace.

Elizabeth Kaeton, (from Lifting Women’s Voices: Canterbury Press; 2009)
Two letters for forwarding to politicians: one for Northern Ireland and one for Republic of Ireland.

The INDIVIDUAL designated letter for your jurisdiction can be forwarded by individuals and we would encourage as many people as possible to do this. It is recognised that for some BRANCHES it would be easier for them to sign and send as a group so the attachment designated BRANCHES, is exactly the same as the individual letter with the wording arranged to reflect multiple signatures.

PLEASE ENCOURAGE ALL MEMBERS AND ALL BRANCHES TO TAKE PART IN THIS IMPORTANT INITIATIVE TO HIGHLIGHT THE DAY TO DAY DIFFICULTIES OF THOSE WHO HAVE FOUND THEMSELVES LEAVING HOME AND ARE HAMPERED BY OBSTACLES AND CONSTRICTIONS WHICH PRESENT GOVERMENTAL AGENCIES AND COUNCILS CAN HIGHLIGHT AND WORK TO LESSEN THE IMPACT ON VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC ABUSE.

We highly recommend that this is done during the three month period October to mid-February. Remember one signature on its own may not make a difference but when politicians receive many signatures, they are duty bound to act.

A prayer from ‘Dear Lord’ for this season of Indoor Members’ Parties

Some things are ageless…..

God of my yesterdays and of my tomorrows you have used my past to shape me into the person I am today.

Now, as I look forward, give me courage and an open mind; help me trust that you will share with me whatever my future brings.

Then may I remember with wonder The way that you have met my need.
