  2. Two dynamic worship leaders
  3. A devotional message from Cathy Reid
  4. Background content from Taiwan
  5.  Prayers, stories from Taiwanese women, and a devotional based on Ephesians 1: 15-19
  6.  Familiar hymns performed by The Salvation Army MAGA team, a talented east coast mother and son, and a young aspiring opera singer who sang in memory of her grandmother, a strong WDP supporter
  7.  A promo of Kids Pray Too!
  8.  A liturgical dance based on the World Day of Prayer 2023 scripture
  9.  An opportunity to reflect
