Women to Join in Prayer Across Globe
Women from Johannesburg, Pretoria, Krugersdorp and neighbouring regions will fill the air with sounds of praise and worship in support of the international Women’s World Day of Prayer.
Taking place on Saturday, March 3, at 9:00 at Regina Mundi church in Moroka, Soweto, it will focus on the plight of women in Suriname in South America.
Mahadi Buthelezi, marketing coordinator at Radio Veritas, said that women from all denominations will be sharing and networking, but more importantly joining in prayer.
“Women are the same in nature: they cry, smile, love passionately, yet continue to worship and praise God through it all,” she said.
This year, the theme focusing on Suriname is “All God’s Creation is Very Good!”
Women’s World Day of Prayer has been celebrated in South Africa for the past 88 years.
For Radio Veritas and the Friends of Radio Veritas, the initiative began four years ago as part of the spirit of ecumenism as advocated by the Church. Radio Veritas and the Protestant Radio Pulpit will be coming together in solidarity on the day.
The theme of God’s creation being good is indeed going to hit home for many of us, Mrs Buthelezi said. “Are you really good in your daily life? In what you say, and do?”
She added that there had been “a phenomenal increase in the number of women at the event who promise to be there the following year”.
Last year’s prayer day in Pretoria attracted around 3000 women, and this year’s invitation is again for all women, from all walks of life, all creeds and religions.
