World Day of Prayer

The World Day of Prayer is a global ecumenical movement that brings Christians of many traditions together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday of March. 

The day has its origins in the 19th century, when Christian women in North America started to be involved in missions at home and in other parts of the world. 

Today in Canada, the World Day of Prayer is coordinated by the Women's Inter-Church Council of Canada

Each year the focus is on a certain country, with women of that country providing art, music, prayer, and other resources to help mark the day.
