Women's World Day of Prayer is a global, ecumenical movement of
informed prayer and prayerful action, organised and led by
Christian women who call the faithful together on the first
Friday in March each year to observe a common day of prayer. The
theme for this year's service is 'God's wisdom provides new
understanding' and the service of prayers, readings and hymns
has been prepared by Christian women from Guyana.
