WOMEN’S WORLD DAY OF PRAYER

07 March 2014

Motto of World Day of Prayer

“Informed Prayer; Prayerful Action.”

This year’s World Day of Prayer was prepared by the Egypt Committee, on the theme of: “Streams in the Desert.” In Krugersdorp, the ecumenical service was held at the Catholic Church of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary and was attended by women, and some men, from all denominations. The Prayer Service focussed on God’s promises in the Scriptures and particularly in the Book of Isaiah:

“I will pour water on the thirsty land;

and streams on the dry ground.

I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring;

and my blessings on your descendants.”

An inspiring talk was delivered on the Gospel of John 4: 1-41, focussing on:

Jesus as the Living Water.

LET US CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR PEACE IN OUR WORLD.
