BMS World Mission- Gender justice

Jan 2, 2024 | BMS, Mission Partners | 0 comments

In many parts of the world, girls and women are denied access to education, employment, land, property, finances, status and respect. All too often, they are victims of violence. But the value Jesus placed on women was radically counter-cultural. BMS World Mission is committed to promoting the idea that women are inherently valuable, made in the image
of God.

SUNDAY 31
Pray that gender equality becomes the air we breathe. Lift up BMS partners as they contextualise the BMS Gender Charter. Pray that they will be open to considering their own gender theology to help overcome the fractures in society.

MONDAY 1
Astha Shrestha works with Human Development and Community Services (HDCS), BMS’ partner in Nepal. Pray for Astha as she promotes maternal and child health, encourages educational attainment for girls, and implements empowerment projects for women and girls.

TUESDAY 2
Celebrate individuals with special needs who add value to our communities, remembering their intrinsic worth. Pray for the centre for children with learning differences run by the Lebanese Society for Education and Social Development (LSESD) now known as Thimar.

WEDNESDAY 3
KISC EQUIP, BMS’ partner in Nepal, is introducing safeguarding and gender-based violence training for teachers. Lift up their work towards reducing child abuse and improving girls’ attendance and retention in schools.

THURSDAY 4
Ask God for wisdom for Justice Livelihoods Health (JLH), BMS’ partner in Uganda. Pray that their interventions will reduce inequalities and ensure justice for both females and males.

FRIDAY 5
Pray for BMS partners supporting refugees and asylum seekers. Women are often the most vulnerable, frequently facing injustice and inequality not only in their context of origin but also in their new location.

SATURDAY 6
Praise God for gender champions and BMS partners who have embraced women in leadership. May their efforts help free girls and women from gender-based violence.
