Prayer Squares using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
We are thankful to the Women's Ministries in The Salvation Army New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga & Samoa Territory for developing Prayer Squares as a prayer resource, helpful in praying for women and girls.
From their website:
The Prayer Squares are a freely-printable resource to help you pray for women and girls, and the world, using the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as an engaging framework.
You can view the Prayer Squares online, or print and use them as prayer starters. We've also provided facts relating to each SDG on the reverse side of the card, so you can pray specifically and effectively for women and girls worldwide.
The United Nations has set 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) which 'provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.'
The United Nations and member-countries are working toward the tangible SDG targets to end human need. The United Nation Women's department are tracking how women and girls fare in relation to the SDGs. We have used their resources to create the 'Prayer Squares', to pray effectively and informedly through the issues facing women and girls around the world.
Prayer Squares are available for download in English and French below.
