Lent Week 5 Week Liturgy

I found this Litany of Thanks for Bold Women on the African American lectionary site.  I thought that it would be an amazing way to close out our Ruth series as she was undoubtedly a black woman who made bold decisions.  Plus I thought that on a day when we're dedicating babies and honouring the mothers who brought them into the world that this would be a great celebratory prayer for us to pray together.  Here's the prayer below.  Take a few moments to read through this and hold up the women in your life who lead with boldness and grace.

Lord our God, we give thanks today for the witness of bold women. From the earliest times until today and on into the future, bold women show all of us how to live as God's beloved children in God's beloved creation, carrying out our baptismal call to work for justice and peace for all God's creatures. 
For Eve, mother of us all, sinful and beloved, we say: 
Thank you, Lord! 
For Miriam, who danced beside the Red Sea, we say: 
Thank you, Lord! 
For Mary, mother of Jesus, who pondered the angel's words in her heart, we say:
Thank you, Lord! 
For Mary Magdalene, first to hear the voice of the Risen Christ, we say: 
Thank you, Lord! 
For Naomi, who rejoiced in her grandson Obed, we say: 
Thank you, Lord! 
For the Syro-Phoenician woman, bold enough to challenge Jesus himself for her child's sake:
Thank you, Lord! 
For Mary and Martha of Bethany, who served the Lord together in their different ways, we say:
Thank you, Lord! 
For the persistent widow, who would not rest until she won justice, we say:
Thank you, Lord!
For Esther, who refused to be silent because she knew that God would go before her as she prepared to go before the king of the land on behalf of her people, we say:
Thank you, Lord!
There have been bold women all around us on our way, if only we look for them. For whom do we thank the Lord today? Name her aloud and let us thank God for her witness.
Thank you, Lord!
For the witness of all bold women, yesterday, today, and tomorrow, Lord our God, we thank you and we praise you. Lord our God, let their boldness flourish in our own hearts as we live out our baptismal call to serve you and our neighbour, with all our heart, with all our mind, with all our strength.
Thank you, Lord! Amen!
