World Day of Prayer

Rise! Take Your Mat and Walk
Women's World Day of Prayer - A service for everyone
Friday 6th March 2020

 

We will be part of a great wave of prayer encirculing to globe - starting as the sun rises over Samoa and ending some 38 hours later back in the Pacific, as the sun sets over American Samoa.  We will be praying and sharing with people in over 120 countries and islands around the world.  Each year the service is put together by a different country.  This year it has been written by the women of Zimbabwe.

On behalf of Kingsthorpe Churches Together, we invite you to join in this year's Women's World Day of Prayer on Friday 6th March, on the theme of 'Rise! Take Your Mat and Walk

If you are able and available, do come and join us at Kingsthorpe Baptish Church, High Street, Kingsthorpe, on Friday 6th March 2019, 7.30pm for our time of prayer and reflection, readings and hymns

and close with the prayer that our Saviour taught us:

Our Father, who art in heaven
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven,
Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory
for ever and ever.
Amen.

We thank thee that thy Church unsleeping,
while earth rolls onward into light,
through all the world her watch is keeping,
and rests not now by day or night.
John Ellerton (1826-1893)
