WOMEN UNITE FOR WORLD DAY OF PRAYER The service will be held at the Baptist Church in School Mead


T


he Women's World Day of Prayer is an annual event that dates back to the 19th


Century and is now a global experience that takes place on the first Friday of every March each year. It is organised and led by Christian women


around the world, who call together the faithful to observe a common day of prayer and worship. Each year the service is written by a different country and this year it has been written by the women of Chile, and the theme is ‗How Many Loaves Have You Got?‘ This is an appropriate theme for bread is eaten


at every meal in Chile and is very much part of everyday life. The women of Chile offer what it means to them as they share this service with other people from around the world. Jean Hackett, president of the National Committee of the Women‘s World Day of Prayer


Movement, said: ―This is always an exciting day as a great wave of prayer sweeps the world through the various time zones. ―It begins in Tonga and continues around the


world until the final service takes place in neighbouring Western Somalia some 35 hours later. By then it will have been celebrated in over 170 countries and with 5,000 services being held in England, Wales and Northern Ireland alone.‖ Although organised and led by women, this is a


day of prayer for everyone and all are welcome at the services. In Abbots Langley the service this year is being held at the Baptist Church in School Mead at 2pm. The speaker is Maureen Finity. After the service refreshments and homemade baking will be served in the Church Hall. For more information about the event visit www.wwdp-natcomm.org
