Come join in this year’s ecumenical World Day of Prayer service to be held Friday, March 3, 2017 at 2 PM at St. Paul United Methodist Church, 501 Sycamore St., La Porte City. Everyone is welcome.
This year the women of the Philippines share their stories of intergenerational wisdom, traditions and experiences of God’s profound love and acceptance in considering the words: “Am I being unfair to you?” With these words as the backdrop, people are invited to learn about the Philippines’ history and rich cultural diversity.
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 this day of celebration. Each year a different country’s committee serves as the writers of the World Day of Prayer worship service.
