World Day of Prayer FRIDAY MARCH 1st 2019
The World Day of Prayer is a worldwide movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year, and who, in many countries, have a continuing relationship in prayer and service.
Through World Day of Prayer, women around the world affirm their faith in Jesus Christ, share their hopes and fears, their joys and sorrows, their opportunities and needs, affirm that prayer and action are inseparable and both have immeasurable influence in the world.
It is a movement symbolised by an annual day of celebration on the first Friday of March every year.
WDP is women-led: no longer 'Women's' i.e. belonging to women, in the same way as a church's Women's Fellowship or Women's Own magazine, but instead belonging to everyone — but led by women, women's gift to the whole Church. As someone said recently;
"We men will no longer feel unwanted!"
Come — Everything is Ready!
Everything is ready and the invitation is for everyone — men, women and children of all ages to join this Day of Prayer.
The Christian Women of Slovenia, one of the smallest and youngest countries in Europe, have prepared this year's service and they encourage us to reflect on the barriers they have faced since the end of the Second World War when their country was a part of Yugoslavia, a Marxist socialist republic. They share the challenges they have met and the hopes they have for the future.
