Across each continent and island

from w
Today, the World Day of Prayer is taking place all around the globe, perhaps starting with Tonga, Fiji and New Zealand and then every hour throughout the day. This has been the custom for many years now. Each year the service is prepared from different countries, this year Paraguay. I went to Wesley church in Geelong city today and it was excellent service with prayer, song, a powerpoint presentation about Paraguay, knowing that we are part of a world-wide network. The theme was based on a kind of craftwork called nanduti which is lace/crochet cloth using a weaving framework like spider's web.

The song closely associated with the World Day of Prayer includes this verse -
Across each continent and island
as dawn leads on another day
the voice of prayer is never silent
nor dies the strain of praise away.
