An Overview of the Day

On the first Monday of every November, Baptist women from around the world gather in towns, villages, cities to pray for each other and issues facing women around the world. On this day, women who gather to pray also donate funds to support projects around the world that benefit vulnerable women, youth and children.

Prayer requests are organized by Continental Union (South Pacific, Asia, Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America and North America) and written by Baptist women from each Union. 2016’s Day of Prayer program was written by women from the North American Baptist Women’s Union, including our very own Renee James!
