World Day of Prayer is approaching

Comments

A World Day of Prayer service will be happening on Friday, March 7 at St. Giles' Anglican Church in Estevan, starting at 2 p.m.

This year's theme is Streams in the Desert, and the focus will be on Egypt. It's a country with a rich history that has been a nation of refuge and exile. Streams flow through the desert, bringing the fertile nutrients needed for plants, trees, and all forms of life to flourish.

“In the 2014 service we are invited to seek the streams of living water which Jesus offers,” states a write-up on the World Day of Prayer website.

The World Day of Prayer is a worldwide, non-denominational event for Christian women of many traditions. They come together the first Friday of March each year to observe a common day of prayer.

Through World Day of Prayer, women affirm their faith in Jesus Christ and become aware of the world. They are enriched by the faith experience of Christians in other countries and cultures; they share the burdens of other people and pray with them and for them; and they become aware of their own talents and use them in the service of God's world.

A different nation is the focus of the World Day of Prayer each year. Women learn more about that nation, and pray for the people in that country.
