World Day of Prayer 2023

World Day of Prayer


30th Annual World Day of Prayer!

September 13 through September 14.

This year's theme is "Heart of Healing."

As we unite hearts and minds with people from around the globe, this year, we are affirming together: I open my heart to healing in this moment.

2023 Guiding Prayer: "Alert and focused, I breathe into this powerful moment. I open my heart that recognizes the healing power of God, the source of wholeness and well-being. I turn within to inexhaustible and ever-flowing divine life. Compassionately, I acknowledge my human experience. Struggles and challenges come and go, but no human condition can hinder the flow of divine life. I heal as I shift my awareness to my spiritual nature and find that God and I—divine life and I—are one. I have ready access to the fullness of life at all times. Healing is happening in every moment of spiritual awareness. Knowing that wholeness and well-being are innate, I celebrate my capacity to thrive in every circumstance. With a grateful heart, I heal. And so it is."
