WORLD DAY OF PRAYER: An ecumenical celebration on the theme “In Christ there are many members, yet one body” will be held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on Friday, March 6th at 2:00 PM. Join the downtown churches and share in the service written by the women of Papua New Guinea.
The World Day of Prayer is a global ecumenical movement which brings Christians of many traditions together to observe a common day of prayer each year. Through preparation and participation in the worship service, we can come to know how our sisters of other countries, languages and cultures understand the Biblical passages in their context. We can hear their concerns and needs and can feel ourselves in solidarity with them as we pray with and for them. In this way, it is possible to enrich our Christian faith as it grows deeper and broader in an international, ecumenical expression.
The motto of the World Day of Prayer movement is Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action. Through our participation in the World Day of Prayer, we affirm that prayer and action are inseparable and that both have immeasurable influence on the world.
