World-Day-of-PrayerWORLD DAY of PRAYER 2015

“Showing genuine interest in others is a positive step forward in maintaining unity among believers and reaching out to the community.’ With these words the women of The Bahamas encapsulate the World Day of Prayer. On Friday, March 6, 2015, these women invite you to join with them I n this year’s World Day of Prayer, a celebration of their culture and history, their land their legacy.

The sound of the ocean breeze, of Junkanoo, or rake ‘n’ scrape and the beat of a goombay drum leave us poised to listen for more. The women of The Bahamas have stories to tell. Their stories begin with a question: “Jesus said to them, ‘Do you know what I have done to you?’”

Please join us and invite your friends and family to attend the World Day of Prayer service and learn more about the culture and heritage of The Bahamas. Join Christians in more than 170 countries around the world and in 2,000 communities across Canada who will gather on the World Day of Prayer to pray and act in solidarity with the people of The Bahamas.
