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 2020 World Day of Prayer service has been written by the women of Zimbabwe, and will take place on Friday 6th March 2020. The title and theme of the service is: “Rise! Take your mat and walk.”
In a recent press release, WDP say:
“Women, men and children of all ages are called to ‘Rise, take your mat and walk’ to join this day of prayer.* Women of Zimbabwe have prepared this year’s service and they encourage us all to reflect on the difficulties and unrest that have plagued theircountry over many years. They share the challenges they have met and the hopes they have for the future. They encourage us to’Rise, take your mat and walk’ with them as they continue their often turbulent journey towards full reconciliation.”
