Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Event Dates: January 18th-25th, 2018

The theme of this year's international Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is "Your Right Hand, O Lord, Glorious in Power," is taken from the book of Exodus 15:6..

Not just during this week but throughout 2018, join Christians everywhere in praying “that they may all be one” joining our prayer with that of the Lord Jesus Christ. For more information go to: www.geii.org

Begun in 1908, these days have been set aside each year so that Christians the world over may share the prayer of Jesus: “that all may be one... that the world may believe” (John 17:21). Especially on Ecumenical Sunday, January 21, we celebrate what God is doing through the many ecumenical agencies — local, regional, national and international — that make up the modern ecumenical movement. In special prayers “that all may be one... that the world may believe” (John 17:21), we beg God for His assistance in this noble task. Especially in Baton Rouge, we acknowledge the fine work that the Interfaith Federation of Greater Baton Rouge does to promote understanding and cooperation among Christians and others in our community. For more information about their ministry, go to http://www.ifedgbr.com  Your active participation in their work is encouraged.
