A bit about the Day of Prayer…….

The service for 2018 has been planned by the women of Suriname.  It is a beautiful country on the north eastern Atlantic coast of South America. It is bordered by French Guiana to the east, Guyana to the west and Brazil to the south, and is the smallest country in South America.  With forests and mountains, and great rivers with impressive rapids, it is a country rich with flowers and animals, and provides enough food for all.

The interdenominational movement of the Women’s World Day of Prayer invites everyone to attend one of over 5,000 services being held on Friday 2nd March.  We will join an estimated 3 million people around the world that day, starting in Samoa as the sun rises, and ending as the sun sets off the coast of American Samoa, the service will have been translated into more than 95 languages and 1000 dialects, as we are reminded that we have responsibilities in caring for this wonderful world we live in.

With its vast rainforest and wealth of resources, Suriname asks us to pray for conservation and the protection of wildlife, through an awareness of pollution, misuse and abuse, as well as for the situation in Suriname and concerns for the future.

This is not simply a day of prayer for women, but for everyone who cares about our world and those who live in it. For details of services in your area and for further information and resources, please visit the WWDP website: www.wwdp.org.uk
