Event offers a way to unite in prayer
This Friday, the Anglican Parish of Rockingham and Safety Bay will join thousands of churches around the world when it hosts the World Day of Prayer.
The annual event focuses attention on one country each year, with the Philippines featured at Friday’s service.
The Christian women from that culture write a prayer that is delivered to thousands of churches across the world, with this year’s theme centred on the phrase: “Am I being unfair to you?”
Churches in the district host the service in rotation and Anglican Parish of Rockingham and Safety Bay’s Reverend Peter Brain said it was an honour to hold the event.
“I’ve been involved with this since 1981 and it’s a great way to unite in prayer,” he said.
“We’re very blessed to live in a peaceful and stable country and the World Day of Prayer is a way for us to reflect on those who aren’t so lucky.”
The World Day of Prayer service begins at 2pm this Friday at the Anglican Parish of Rockingham and Safety Bay.
