World Day of Prayer event

People from across the Brechin area will join together on Friday (March 1) at 7 p.m., in the Cathedral Hall to celebrate World Day of Prayer with the theme “I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”

Jon Bergen of Brechin Baptist Fellowship said: “World Day of Prayer is an international, ecumenical, prayer movement initiated and carried out by Christian women in more than 180 countries and over 1000 languages.

“Every year Christians of many traditions and all ages, celebrate a common day of prayer on the first Friday in March.

“World Day of Prayer services are held all around the world, beginning in Tonga and New Zealand in the east and continuing throughout the day to Samoa and Alaska in the west.

“It brings the needs of the world, and of the writing country in particular, before Almighty God knowing that He will hear and answer us, as we pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.

God invites us to have a prayer relationship with Himself, but He also expects us to have concerned relationships with our neighbours, throughout the world.

“Prayer must be accompanied by action, as God moves our hearts and directs our thoughts.”

Morag Dale, who is helping to organise the event, said: “Here in Brechin it has come to involve people from our entire Christian community.

“We would like to invite everyone to come and join us at the Cathedral Hall at 7 p.m.

“We will have a time of prayer using the prayer service from France.
