World Day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement of women and men of many faith traditions who come together on the first Friday in March each year. Throughout the day, we collectively pray all over the world, beginning with the first sunrise and ending with the last sunset. Our prayers follow the sun's path around the globe.
WDP's motto, "Informed prayer leads to prayerful action," affirms that prayer and action are inseparable and that both have immeasurable influence. As we observe WDP 2008, millions of God's people are suffering from violence, neglect, poverty, and political injustice. Women and children, especially, are denied basic human rights and are victims of those who would exploit them and abuse them.
We encourage you to hear and come to the aid of those who are denied justice, self-determination and opportunity, globally and locally.
The Humeston community will participate in the World Day of Prayer 2008. Services will be held at the Humeston Baptist Church at 2 pm on March 7. Please join us.
