World Day of Prayer

The World Day of Prayer is an international ecumenical Christian women’s initiative. It is run under the motto “Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action,” and is celebrated annually in over 170 countries. The movement aims to bring together women of various races, cultures and traditions in a yearly common Day of Prayer. Women are encouraged to become aware of the other countries and cultures and no longer live in isolation. They are also encouraged take up the burdens of other people, to sympathize with the problems of other countries and cultures and pray with and for them.

On the first Friday in March, a world-wide service is held, designed each year by Christian women from a different country. St Michael’s together with our friends from local churches, St Botolph’s in Aspley Guise, St Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, and the Methodist Church Woburn Sands celebrate at a service held in one of these churches.

The 2023 World Day of Prayer  had the theme of ‘I have heard about your faith’ and the programme was written by the women of Taiwan. The next Women’s World Day of Prayer, with the theme ‘I Beg You… Bear With One Another in Love’ comes from Palestine, and will be held on March 1st 2024.
