World Day of Prayer is Friday, March 1. Clyde Central United Methodist Church will be open for Prayer from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
World Day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday in March. World Day of Prayer was founded on the idea that prayer and action are inseparable in the service of God's kingdom. Services begin at sunrise in the Pacific and follow the sun across the globe on the day of the celebration. Each year a different country's committee serves as the writers of the World Day of Prayer worship service.
Women, men and children in more than 170 countries and regions will celebrate World Day of Prayer, Friday, March 1, 2013. The women of France, this year's writer-country, have chosen the theme, "I was a stranger and you welcomed me."
The group will pray for ecumenical efforts toward justice, peace, healing and wholeness in the U.S. and in lands around the world.
