February 13, 2015 – Women, men and children in more than 170 countries and regions will celebrate the annual World Day of Prayer on Friday, March 6, 2015. Carroll Lutheran Village will host the Carroll County service beginning at 2:00 p.m. in Krug Chapel Auditorium.
The service, planned locally by the Church Women United of Carroll County, invites people of all faiths to attend the ecumenical service. This years’ service was written by the women of the World Day of Prayer Committee of The Bahamas, who call us to consider Jesus’ words to the disciples after washing their feet: “Do you understand what I have done for you?” The women of The Bahamas describe what Jesus does when he washes the disciples’ feet as “radical love.” Radical love comes from humility, compassion and commitment. God’s radical love is not static or self-centered; it reaches out and draws others in.
World Day of Prayer is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday in March. Each year a different country’s committee writes the World Day of Prayer worship service.
