1 March 2019: World Day of Prayer
The service this year is prepared by the Christian women of Slovenia. It reminds us that God’s feast is open to everyone, not only the rich and powerful who think they have better and more interesting things to do, but equally to those we may prefer not to think about – the poor, the homeless, the marginalised.
We sometimes forget that the service is not an end in itself: it demands a prayerful response from us. God turns no-one away – and nor should we!
There are nearly 5,000 services throughout the United Kingdom and tens of thousands more worldwide.
