Week of Prayer

YWCA -YMCA Week of Prayer and World Fellowship

For more than a century, the World YWCA and YMCA movements have issued a joint call for members around the world around the world to pray and act together on a shared issue. Celebrated in November, the World Week of Prayer provides an important reminder of the spiritual vision that drives our efforts to create a better world for all people. Every year, we jointly produce a special booklet, which includes suggestions for worship and a bible reading plan.

The YWCA and YMCA’s main focus is on the holistic development of youth and women since their creation. In the month of November, for over a century, the YWCA and YMCA movements have collaborated to issue a joint call to pray as an important reminder of the spiritual vision that drives their efforts to create a better world for all people. In 2014, the World YWCA/YMCA Week of Prayer and World Fellowship takes place from November 9 - 15 under the theme “Bold and Transformative Leadership.”

The work of the YWCA and YMCA movements is rooted in Christianity and we are driven by our Christian beliefs in everything that we do. One of our oldest joint traditions is to celebrate the YWCA/YMCA Week of Prayer, a tradition that goes back to 1904. Every year during the month of November, the YWCA and YMCA movements issue a joint call for prayer as an important reminder of the spiritual vision that drives their efforts to create a better world for all people. This year's YWCA/YMCA Week of Prayer will be held from November 10-16, under the theme: "Be the Change”.
