World Day of Prayer (WDP)

World Day of Prayer Logo

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER (WDP) is a worldwide ecumenical movement of women of many faith traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday in March.

Throughout the entire day, we collectively pray all over the world, beginning with the first sunrise and ending at the last sunset. Our prayers follow the sun’s path around the globe.

WDP’s motto is “Informed prayer leads to prayerful action.” Through World Day of Prayer, women affirm that prayer and action are inseparable and that both have immeasurable influence in the world.

It is a movement initiated and carried out by women in more than 170 countries and regions. It is also a movement symbolized by an annual day of celebration–the first Friday of March–to which all people are welcome. It brings together women of various races, cultures and traditions in closer fellowship, understanding and action throughout the year.

On WDP, Women Around The World :

Affirm their faith in Jesus Christ; Share their hopes and fears, joys and sorrows, their opportunities and need; Become aware of the whole world and no longer live in isolation; Are enriched by the faith experience of Christians from other countries and cultures; Become aware of their talents and use them in the service of society.

Through World Day of Prayer, women affirm that PRAYER and ACTION are inseparable and that both have immeasurable influence in the world.

  1. This is awesome! I hope it is okay for me to leave behind my thoughts. :grin:

    Honestly, even though I am an atheist, I do believe in the power of prayer. I think that prayer has a positive affect on a person’s general state of mind, and can help to keep thoughts of self-improvement, family bonds, charity, etc. at the forefront. Those thoughts can and do lead to action, which leads to a better life, and a better world.

    I think that this many people praying at once, knowing that they are connected through their belief and through their prayers, can bring people closer together, even if just in thought, and that sort of movement can have an awesome impact on society. (When used in a positive way)

    As an atheist, I do not believe that there is anyone *answering* those prayers, but I do agree that prayer and action should be inseparable.

    Meditation can have similar affects, as well as spell work (in case there happen to be any pagans reading this).
