World Day of Prayer (WDP) has been happening in Canada for almost 100 years! The 2021 service was written by the WDP committee of Vanuatu inspired by the Biblical theme “Build on a Strong Foundation” (Matthew 7; 24-27).

World Day of Prayer has been an important ministry for women as they lead services within their communities for their own denominations and ecumenically year after year. In past years, women received the World Day of Prayer service in the fall, and then gathered to plan, host, and share coffee and conversation following the service, typically on the first Friday in March.
