Due to covid 19 we need to be united in prayer in these uncertain times.
Dear Lord, keep us
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.

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.

Scottish Committee Mission Statement
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.
World Day of Prayer is able to claim tax on Gift Aid donations.
