Friday 3 March at 11 am: 2023 World Day of Prayer
at St Paul’s Anglican Church 70 Canberra Avenue, Manuka
The World Day of Prayer is an international ecumenical Christian laywomen’s initiative. It is run under the motto “Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action,” and is celebrated annually in over 170 countries on the first Friday in March. The movement aims to bring together women of various races, cultures and traditions in a yearly common Day of Prayer, as well as in closer fellowship, understanding and action throughout the year.
In 2023 the host country is Taiwan, which opened up an opportunity for the two WDP committees in Taiwan to collaborate. ‘The process of working in conjunction has brought the WDP movement in Taiwan an opportunity for mutual exchange and dialogue to seek a state of unity in faith and love between the two committees. While diverse opinions remain among the different denominations in terms of politics and social issues, the Christian faith has led us to go beyond the chasm of ethnicity, historical wounds, and disagreements in real life, so that we may work together for the gospel in which we so believe.’ see https://www.worlddayofprayeraustralia.org/
