World Day of Prayer
“We have learned the great lesson of praying with, rather than for, our sisters of other races and nations, thus enriching our experience and releasing the power which must be ours if we are to accomplish tasks entrusted to us.”
The World Day of Prayer is a global ecumenical movement led by Christian women who welcome all to join in prayer and action for peace and justice. The invitation is to join in prayer and action for peace and justice.
Held on the first Friday of March, each year resources are developed by a national committee and shared internationally. The service is usually organised ecumenically by women from across local churches, and hosted on rotation by one of the local churches.
The theme chosen each year is intended to inspire informed prayer and prayerful action.
