Welcome to Women's World Day Of Prayer
So the WWDP service is all over for another year. That’s it! We can forget all about it until January 2018.
Really? Wait, hang on a minute. What does our mission statement say – Informed prayer, prayerful action? Where’s the prayerful action? What are we going to do or change because of the prayers and promises we made on 3rd March? Because a prayer isn’t really a prayer until we’ve done something with it.
One of your prayerful actions, of course, is to send your offerings promptly to the Administrator. This enables the National Committee to make grants on your behalf to Christian charities worldwide. Thanks to those who have already sent in the takings from their services, the National Committee was able at its meeting this month to send £10,000 to Christian Aid for the East Africa Famine Appeal. Other grants will be made later in the year.
Thank you to everyone who has sent us comments and pictures from 3rd March. We were delighted to learn that the service was so well received. Here are some of the comments: “Thought-provoking service;” “Service flowed well;” “Good to learn new tunes;” “It really was a lovely service, beautiful music and much easier to access this year.”
Whilst we pray about the issues that the service from the Philippines brought to our attention and ask God’s guidance as to what
actions we should take, our work on next year’s service
is well under way. I promise you even more to provoke
and challenge for 2018.
