What is World Day of Prayer?

Informed Prayer. Prayerful Action. Imagine Christians from over 170 countries coming together in spirit, uniting on a common day to pray for relevant issues affecting women and children. This is a reality: the movement has been active for nearly 100 years. Each year, a different country writes the service materials. The World Day of Prayer is generally celebrated on the first Friday of March. This year (2024), the writing committee is Palestine: “I Beg You... Bear With One Another in Love” Ephesians 4:1-3.
