Friday, March 6, is World Day of Prayer and some churches around Central Florida plan to be open throughout the day and well into the evening for people to come in and pray. Yes, there are several “days” of prayer worldwide and in the United States, designated by various groups, on different days each year. (Check your local church for this WDP participation and hours.)
That’s Ok. Scripture says that men should always pray, that we should pray without ceasing. Good reason too: With all that’s going on in the world, we all need God – at all times.
Wikipedia describes World Day of Prayer as a Christian laymen’s initiative. “It is run under the motto “Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action,” and is celebrated annually in over 170 countries on the first Friday in March. The movement aims to bring together women of various races, cultures and traditions in a yearly common Day of Prayer, as well as in closer fellowship, understanding and action throughout the year.”
