About Us

The goal of the world day of prayer is to bring together women of various cultures, nations, and races in traditional international prayer as well as to create understanding and harmony among people.

Our organization is responsible for the preparation and organization of the annual World Day of Prayer. The event happens on the first Friday in March, and we are Christian ecumenical laywomen. Our beginnings date back in 1887 and we are thankful to Marry Ellen Fairchild James that organized the first prayer.

Our goal is to pray for our brothers and sisters and combine prayers with actions. We believe that it is the right way to make changes in the world for good and in the name of God!
