Sustainable Development Goals Prayer Squares

Use these printables to help pray for women and girls, and understand the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals

World President of The Salvation Army International Women's Ministries' Commissioner Rosalie Peddle issued a call earlier this year to 'Reimagine' ministering to women in every context. We took up the challenge by recreating the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals as Prayer Squares, to engage in praying effectively for women and girls worldwide. Will you join us?

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 explains the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 'an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership.' The Sustainable Development Goals 'recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.'

United Nations Women have conducted research on how women and girls are faring under these goals, and we've created a variety of resources to help your people engage in prayer for women and girls as a result.

Sustainable Development Goals Prayer Squares

We've made the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) into printable prayer squares for you. Share a pic of you using our Prayer Squares on social media, using #PrayerSquareSDG!

  • Prayer Squares cards and facts: Print these double-sided (flip on short edge), and cut to size. Each SDG card has facts that can be printed double-sided on the reverse, relating to that Sustainable Development Goals for women and girls. Have the Fact Sheet printed for extra information.
  • Prayer Square Singles: Print these single-sided (blank on the back, no facts), and provide the accompanying fact sheet for people to read themselves.
  • Prayer Squares Fact Sheet: This fact sheet is a gender-snapshot of how women and girls fare under each Sustainable Development Goal.
  • Prayer Square A4: Use these as prayer station posters.

Salvationist Prayers for Sustainable Development Goals

As a companion to the SDG Prayer Squares, we have created these Salvationist Prayers for Sustainable Development Goals.

Salvation Army women throughout our movement have written these in response to the goals that mean the most to them. Print these out and have them alongside your prayer squares, pray them over your group or view them online. You could also write your own as you pray and learn. The Salvation Army's General Brian Peddle has issued a global call to pray for women and girls. He describes ‘probably the greatest injustice of our age’ – the fact that half the world’s population start life at a disadvantage simply because they are female.

Will you join us in an urgent call for prayer, as we intercede for women and girls through each of the Sustainable Development Goals?​
