World Day of Prayer has been an integral part of the lives of church women in the United States since the prayer movement’s inception. Church Women United (CWU) units across the country continue to gather in celebrations of this special day on the first Friday in March annually. For many years CWU was the national sponsor of World Day of Prayer in the United States. In 2005, the World Day of Prayer International Committee established a World Day of Prayer USA Committee to oversee WDP in the US.
On World Day of Prayer 2014 leaders from CWU and WDP USA signed a new memorandum of understanding affirming our supportive relationship and mutual commitment to work together. Read the full text of the memorandum here.
