The Women’s World day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Christian women in more than 170 countries, who come together to observe a common day of prayer on the first Friday in March every year. 

The World day Prayer brings together women of various races, cultures and churches in fellowship and understanding.

In South Africa the first World Day of Prayer service was held in March 1930 in the Sea Point Congregational Church. In 1946 a National Committee for Southern Africa was established. Members of this Committee are nominated by a variety of church leadership.

Participation in South Africa is of the best in the world. We praise and thank the Lord for the faith, the need for prayer and the devoted interest in World Day of Prayer revealed by so many Christians in our country !

In reviewing the many years World Day of Prayer has been celebrated in Southern Africa, our hearts are lifted in gratitude. "To God be the Glory !"

Are you part of this wave of prayer which sweeps the country every year,
from north to south and from east to west ?
