TEARS flowed as a group of women yesterday asked God to protect their counterparts around the world who may live in an unfortunate environment.
In marking the World Day of Prayer, women from the coastal area of Naduri, Macuata gathered at the village and offered their thoughts in prayers.
Leader Adi Samanunu Katonivere said it was an annual event marked by women from the different denominations and villages of Nabukadogo, Namama, Naduri and surrounding farms.
"This is one time we come together to pray for our sisters around the world who may face tough times either through violence or being faced with the loss of loved ones through wars.
"So it is important that we offer through prayers the different situations faced by our sisters around their world and even the hardships in societies today," Adi Samanunu said.
She said the special day had also brought women together.
"Despite our different religions and background, we are so united in this day of prayer as we ask God for guidance and protection in the societies we live in and that is important," Adi Samanunu said.
"It is also a day where we encourage and build one another up so we can contribute effectively to our communities," she said.
The women ended their day's program with a special lunch at Naduri Village.
