World Day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday in March;. World Day of Prayer was founded on the idea the prayer and action are inseparable in the service of God’s kingdom. Services begin at sunrise in the Pacific and follow the sun across the globe on the day of celebration. Each year a different country’s committee serves as the writers of the World Day of Prayer worship service.
World Day of Prayer USA promotes justice and equality for women through prayer, partnerships, service, and celebration. For more information contact Canfield Christian Church at 330-533-2246 or firstname.lastname@example.org or the national office of World Day of Prayer USA www.wdp-usa.org.
