2022 is a special year for World Day of Prayer in England, Wales and Northern Ireland as this year, we have prepared the World Day of Prayer service. It has been both challenging and rewarding to write about the three countries that make up our area; our landscape, people and culture all shaped by our history. We celebrate our diversity and the contribution made to our countries by the many groups and individuals who have made their home here. We use our bible text “I know the plans I have for you” from Jeremiah to reflect on some of the issues facing us today: poverty, domestic abuse and disability, finding hope in difficult situations and encouragement in the help we can give to each other.
On 4th March World Day of Prayer services will start in Samoa and move on through New Zealand and Australia, across Asia, Africa, and Europe and finally the USA and South America before finishing in American Samoa. Across England, Wales and Northern Ireland services will take place in large urban centres and in remote country churches. Don’t miss this opportunity to join a worldwide wave of prayer!
