Theme 2017: Passionate Prayers and Fearless Faith

Sabbath March 4, 2017*

The 2017 Day of Prayer sermon is entitled, “Passionate Prayers and Fearless Faith.” This year’s material was written by Gina Wahlen, editor and media manager for the Office of the President of the General Conference. We pray your church will be blessed. If March 4 is not convenient, feel free to choose another Sabbath to host this special day.

What is Women’s Day of Prayer?

The Woman’s Day of Prayer provides an opportunity for women to learn about each other and pray for one another. It is a time to reunite with God and one another to strengthen spiritual bonds. Prayers for women everywhere create a spiritual network of empathy and understanding between Adventist women. Thousands of women (and men) gather to pray on this day. Although the essential purpose of the day is for prayer, the day can also provide women with an opportunity to strengthen their ties with other Christian women as they pray together.
