For many of us in the church, action begins with prayer. Prayer grounds us and helps us speak the truth into the world, and so we offer you these prayers for each of the 16 days as food for reflection and action.
We encourage people — women and men, girls and boys — to mark the 16 Day period by using these prayers, every day during the 16 days, in personal or corporate prayer and worship. We also hope that sermons will be preached, articles will be written, and the bulletin insert will be used as we move through the 16 Day period.
In 2010, Anglican Women’s Empowerment, Episcopal Church Women and Episcopal Women’s Caucus created a resource booklet to give congregations and communities a place to begin with their own observances of the 16 Days. Click to download the Episcopal 16 Days Resource Booklet.
