Week of Prayer

Since 1904, the World YMCA and the World YWCA have traditionally come together to deliver the World Week of Prayer and World Fellowship. Celebrated each year in the second week of November, the Week sees both organisations joining forces to produce a booklet with a theme, a set of Bible studies for each day, and an annual Bible reading plan so that communities around the world can unite in prayer for a specific cause linked to current realities.

Join us in November for a Week of Prayer.
“Ignite: Praying the Impact” is a theme aligned with the long-term strategies of #YMCAVision2030 and #Goal2035 and the World YWCA. It is a call to act prayerfully, informed by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
To focus our prayers, we have selected the values of

  1. Wholeness
  2. Hope
  3. Responsibility
  4. Dignity
  5. Change
  6. Unity
