MORE than a thousand Christians are expected to gather at Ratu Sukuna Park for the world day of prayer in Suva on Friday.

Chairperson and organiser Susana Evening said the movement aimed to bring everyone together in a yearly common day of prayer, as well as in closer fellowship.

"The program aims to bring people of different races, cultures and traditions together in fellowship, understanding and action throughout the year," Ms Evening said.

"The world day of prayer is an international ecumenical Christian laywomen's initiative.

"It is celebrated annually in over 170 countries on the first Friday in March."

Ms Evening said the program would start from 5pm to 7pm and was open to everyone, regardless of race or religion, who wanted to be part of the program.

"Through world day of prayer, Christians affirm that prayer and action are inseparable and have immeasurable influence in the world," she said.

"It is symbolised by an annual day of celebration observed on the first Friday in March to which all people are welcome.

"The host country for the world day of prayer this year would be Suriname and the theme, prepared by them is "All God's Creation is Very Good!" and we will be focusing our attention on the issue of climate change."
