World Day of Prayer (previously Women’s World Day of Prayer) is a women-led, global, ecumenical movement. The WDP service takes place around the world on the first Friday of March each year.
The 2019 World Day of Prayer service has been written by the women of Slovenia, and will take place on Friday 1st March 2019. The title and theme of the service is: “Come – Everything is Ready!”
In a recent press release, WDP say:
“Everything is ready, and the invitation is for everyone – men, women and children of all ages – to join this Day of Prayer. Women of Slovenia, one of the smallest and youngest countries in Europe, have prepared this year’s service and they encourage us to reflect on the barriers they have faced since the end of the Second World War when their country was a part of Yugoslavia, a Marxist socialist republic. They share the challenges they have met and the hopes they have for the future.”
