World Day of Prayer
Local women’s groups have been learning about Slovenia in preparation for the World Day of Prayer, which will be held on Friday, 1 March throughout the country.
This year’s worship resources have been written by women in Slovenia, one of the smallest countries in Europe. At the core of the service is an invitation to join in community, “Come –Everything is Ready”. The focal point is a table set with food to share. Readers will tell stories from women on the edge of Slovenian society: refugees, migrant workers, mothers, and Roma.
The World Day of Prayer is a global movement of Christian women who come together to celebrate in prayer and action on the first Friday in March. Begun in the US and Canada in the nineteenth century, it became a global movement in 1927. The movement brings together women of many ages and ethnicities for prayer and action. National committees take turns at preparing the resources, building understanding and concern for women in many places.
