Theme: Receive Children, Receive Me

Country Focus : Cuba

World Day of Prayer (WDP) is a global, ecumenical movement of Christian women joined together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday of March. The Motto of WDP is "Informed Prayer & Prayerful Action" signifies that prayer and action are inseparable. It is a movement initiated and carried out by women in more than 170 countries and regions. WDP brings together women of various races, cultures, and traditions in closer fellowship, understanding, and action throughout the year. Each year a different theme is chosen and the resource material and liturgy is prepared by WDP Committee of a particular country. Therefore, WDP gives scope to women all over the world to pray for that particular country. Christian women through this prayer movement raise funds to support projects and programs and initiatives of women for justice and peace through WDP International Committee.

This year WDP resource material focuses on Cuba and is prepared by Cuba WDP Committee. The theme is ‘Receive Children, Receive Me’. For the past few decades, All India Council of Christian Women is participating, promoting WDP movement to unite Christian women in prayer movement.  This year AICCW during WDP annual day of observation on 4th March is inviting Churches, Women’s fellowships and ecumenical organizations to Promote Child Rights to Life and Dignity and Take a Stand Against Child Abuse. This is also part of 365 Days Zero Tolerance to Gender Based Violence: Make it Now!!!
