Global day of prayer

Mere Naleba
Friday, March 07, 2014

MEMBERS of the Methodist Church nationwide will celebrate World Day of Prayers which is celebrated globally today.

The Dudley Methodist Church as well as the 56 Methodist divisions in the country will observe the occasion.

With the theme 'Streams of Desert', Dudley Women's Fellowship president Elizabeth Dass said members of the public were welcome to join the prayer session at the church.

"Many circuits are also inviting or combining with other non-Methodist churches to commemorate this day," Ms Dass said.

The Fiji Council of Churches also organised an interdenominational service at the Sacred Heart Cathedral this afternoon.

Council interim general secretary Reverend James Bhagwan said the day was significant because it is also observed in the same week as the Lent season, followed by the International Women's Day which will be observed tomorrow.

"I pray that this will be a time of inspiration, affirmation and encouragement for our sisters, mothers and daughters in our communities of faith," Mr Bhagwan said.
