World Day of Prayer is a global ecumenical movement led by Christian women who welcome you to join in prayer and action for peace and justice, inspired by the motto “Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action.” The movement follows the example of Jesus Christ, who prayed from a place of knowledge and care for the world, and who acted from a place of prayer and connection to God.  

This year's program is written by the World Day of Prayer Committee of Palestine with the theme from Ephesians 4:1-7. This program calls us to bear with each other in love, despite all difficulties and oppression.   
The worship service shares stories of three Palestinian Christian women, who witness to the power of bearing together in love. Their stories illuminate the experiences of Palestinian women from three different generations. The symbol of an olive tree is used throughout the worship service. This represents the three generations through the trunk, branches, and leaves of the olive tree.   

A worship service video for 2024, produced by the Women’s Inter-Church Council of Canada, is available to watch online at any time. A 6-minute devotional video and a children's program are also available.
