Home Worship Ministry World Day of Prayer
World Day of Prayer

The World Day of Prayer was begun by women in Canada and the United States in 1922 and today is observed annually in more than 170 countries on the first Friday in March.  The service offers men and women a moment to reflect upon and affirm their faith in Jesus Christ, to share in the community of Christians around the world and to commit to working for social justice.

The World Day of Prayer is facilitated by the World Day of Prayer International Committee which meets once every four years to select the themes and the countries which will prepare upcoming World Day of Prayer worship services and study aids.  In Lindsay, the host church for the service rotates from year to year among various member churches of the Lindsay Ministerial Association.  Each of the participating churches in the area assists in the preparation and presentation of the service.
