Friday, March 6 is World Day of Prayer 2020. World Day of Prayer is an ecumenical celebration of informed prayer and prayerful action. Join in the prayer service at 1 p.m. on March 2, written by the women of Zimbabwe, who invite all to explore Jesus’ encounter with a person who, although positioned for healing, does not act upon the opportunities given (John 5:2-9a). The theme is “Rise! Take Your Mat and Walk.” This service is sponsored by Manitowish Waters Community Presbyterian Church at Highway 51 in Manitowish Waters. Coffee and dessert will follow.
Women, men, and children in more than 170 countries and regions will celebrate World Day of Prayer, Friday, March 6.
Invite friends, family, and communities of faith to join the women of Zimbabwe in prayer and song to support ecumenical efforts toward justice, peace and healing. The annual offering supports the work of World Day of Prayer USA and helps meet the needs of families in Zimbabwe and around the world who are victims of many forms of poverty, violence, and injustice.
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 that prayer and action are inseparable in the service of God’s kingdom. Each year a different country’s committee serves as the writers of the World Day of Prayer worship service.
