Women's World Day of Prayer

The Women's World Day of Prayer 2017, "Together in Prayer", is hosted this year by Wantage Christian Fellowship.

The Service will take place at Wantage Baptist Church in Mill Street on Friday March 3rd 2017.

All are welcome.

Soup will be served from 12:00 noon.

The Service begins at 1:00 pm.

This Service has been prepared by the Christian women of the Philippines and the theme of the Service is "Am I being unfair to you?"

On the 3rd of March, the day of prayer will have already begun when the sun rose over Samoa and the first service will have already taken place.

We are now part of a great wave of prayer that will continue to go round the world until the last service is held as the sun sets over American Samoa.

During this time, an estimated 3 million men, women and young people in 170 countries and islands will have prayed with and for the people of the Philippines. In the British Isles alone, some 6000 services will have been held.

WDP began as separate days of prayer organised by individual denominations in America in the mid-1800s and has now become a truly international and ecumenical day of prayer.

Just as our prayers encircle the world, so God encircles us with His love.

We thank all the people of the Philippines who have contributed in any way to the preparation of the worship service and the resource materials. Just as they began to write this service Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines and caused much destruction. The people of the Philippines earnestly need our prayers.

Life in those islands must go on despite all the natural disasters and the different living conditions. The people go in faith, knowing that God is with them.
