Women's World Day of Prayer

Women’s World Day of Prayer

March March 9th 2p.m.

 

 

We join with St Nicholas and All Saints to mark this annual event.  This year it is our turn to hold the service which has been prepared by the women of SURINAME.

 

The World Day of Prayer is an international ecumenical Christian laywomen’s initiative.[1] It is run under the motto “Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action,” and is celebrated annually in over 170 countries on the first Friday in March. The movement aims to bring together women of various races, cultures and traditions in a yearly common Day of Prayer as well as in closer fellowship, understanding and action throughout the year

 

Through the World Day of Prayer, women are encouraged to become aware of the other countries and cultures and no longer live in isolation. They are also encouraged take up the burdens of other people, to sympathize with the problems of other countries and cultures and pray with and for them. They are further encouraged to become aware of their talents and use them in the service of society. The World Day of Prayer aims to demonstrate that prayer and action are inseparable and that both have immeasurable influence in the world.
