The elders say the women will lead the healing among the nations. We need to especially pray for our women and ask the Creator to bless them and give them strength. Inside them are powers of Love, and strength given by Moon and Earth. When everyone else gives up, it is women who sing songs of strength, she is the backbone of the people. So, to our women we say...Sing your songs of strength...pray for your special powers...keep our people strong...be respectful..gentle and modest. Great one ~Bless our women~Make them strong today.
