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!"
The Women of England, Wales & Northern Ireland have prepared this year's service.
