The World Day of Prayer is
an international, ecumenical, prayer movement initiated and
carried out by Christian women in more than 180 countries
and over 1000 languages. Every year Christians of many
traditions and all ages, celebrate a common day of prayer on
the first Friday in March. Services are held all around the
world, beginning in Tonga and New Zealand in the east and
continuing throughout the day to Samoa and Alaska in the
west. We bring the needs of the world, and of the writing
country in particular, before Almighty God knowing that He
will hear and answer us, as we pray in the name of Jesus
Christ, our Lord and Saviour. God invites us to have a
prayer relationship with Himself, but He also expects us to
have concerned relationships with our neighbours, throughout
the world. Prayer must be accompanied by action, as God
moves our hearts and directs our thoughts. Many thanks to
all the organisors who organised, participated or attended
services written by the Christian Women of the writing
country. We really appreciate your contribution.
We invite to you to Participate
World Day of Prayer
5th March 2021
The service was prepared
by the Women of Vanuatu and the theme is: "Build on a strong foundation"
The Service comes
from St.Augustine, United Church, Edinburgh
As representatives of
the churches in Scotland, and members of a
world-wide movement of Christian women, we
work to promote prayerful living and worship
for men, women and children and to raise
awareness of the lives and concerns of others
throughout the world, especially those who
write the service.
We encourage women to plan ecumenically for
World Day of Prayer services, and facilitate
them by the preparation of material supportive
of the annual international theme and country.
Through these activities, we generate
resources in support of Christian literature
distribution and Christian organisations which
provide practical help for people in need.
