The WDP motto is “Informed prayer, prayerful action.” World Day of Prayer USA promotes justice and equality for women through prayer, partnerships, service, and celebration.
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 and action each year on the first Friday in March. Each year a different country serves as the writer of the World Day of Prayer worship service, interpreting the Bible in their own context, and lifting up issues of mission, justice and peace.
About World Day of Prayer 2023
World Day of Prayer 2023 is brought to us by the women of Taiwan. They call us to worship with the words “I have heard about your faith” from Ephesians 1:15-19. This is based on a letter sent to a faith community to express gratitude. Paul gave thanks to God for the Ephesians living out their love and faith, and prayed that they could see these three truths: the hope to which God has called the disciples, the riches of God’s glorious inheritance among the saints, and the immeasurable greatness of God’s power. God’s calling has a meaning and a purpose. Often we are frustrated by difficulties and obstacles and may even lose our hope and faith or rely on our weak human nature. However, we are called to keep our “hope and faith” in God’s kingdom and promises. Through the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit, we come to see the faithful, loving, and gracious God. We regain our hope and faith to face the challenges and move forward. As it was written in Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
Join with the Los Rios District United Women in Faith as we spend time in fellowship and in faith. People around the world are sharing this service with their groups and communities.
