November 1 is Baptist Women’s World Day of Prayer

The 2021 Baptist Women’s World Day of Prayer is Monday, November 1, and a prayer service will be held at 6 p.m. at Zion Chapel #1 Baptist Church in Columbia. The event, jointly sponsored by the CMBA Woman’s Missionary Union and Gethsemane Women’s Auxiliary, is open to women of all ages and a link will also be offered to attend virtually. Participants are encouraged to join the annual time of worship and prayer observed by women around the world.

“At the CMBA, our mission is to start and strengthen churches to serve as vital and vibrant missional communities. I believe that this mission can only be faithfully carried out through collective submission to the rule and reign of Jesus Christ. As women gather in prayer on November 1, it will pave the way for God to do incredible works in our community. I hope more of our churches engage in this type of collaborative effort,” says Chris Reinolds, CMBA’s interim Impacting Communities Mobilizer.

In addition to greetings from leaders of local groups, including CMBA WMU Director Rev. Ralphetta Davis, the guided prayer time will include praying for believers living and serving in ministry in the continental unions of Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, North America, Southwest Pacific and in Baptist women’s ministry leadership. Participants will also have an opportunity to give monetary gifts to assist in serving those in need around the world.

Zion Chapel #1 Baptist is located at 130 Walter Hills Road in Columbia.
