Prayer unites

THE World Day of Prayer observed around the country on Friday brought people from different churches and backgrounds together to pray for issues affecting the nation.

Many gathered at the Dudley Methodist Church, the Sacred Heart Cathedral and various Methodist churches to mark the occasion.

Prayers for forgiveness, love and protection, for those affected by natural disasters, deprived widows and education for children were offered during a mass at the Sacred Heart Cathedral.

Archbishop Peter Loy Chong said it was great to see different people being part of the World Day of Prayer, adding prayers built a strong relationship between people and God.

Fiji Council of Churches interim general secretary Reverend James Bhagwan said although the event was an initiative of women in the Christian community, the service was for all.

Mr Bhagwan said the occasion was significant because it was celebrated in the first week of the Christian season of Lent, an important time of reflection and transformation for Christians.

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