Church marks World Day of Prayer

DOWNEY – Downey Memorial Christian Church will mark World Day of Prayer with a worship service and luncheon this Friday, March 28. The service starts at 10:30 a.m. A donation of $7 is asked for the luncheon.

World Day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a day of prayer each year.

World Day of Prayer was founded on the idea that prayer and action “are inseparable in the service of God’s kingdom.” Services begin at sunrise in the Pacific and follow the sun across the globe.

Each year, a different country’s committee serves as the writers of the World Day of Prayer worship service. Egypt provided this year’s prayer.
