World Day of Prayer

Today is the World Day of Prayer, probably one of the world's oldest, most wide reaching and inclusive ecumenical initiatives. There's a great interview with ERF minister Bettina Cottin on the background to the Day here.
This year the liturgy has been prepared by an ecumenical group of women from Papua New Guinea.
Find a service near you today, the day's guiding theme throughout the years is "informed prayer, prayerful action".
The English-speaking congregations in Geneva will hold their service to mark the day at the Ecumenical Centre at 12.30.
