From 12 to 18 November, 2017, the World YWCA and the World YMCA will celebrate our annual World Week of Prayer. The organisations have collaborated on this annual tradition since 1904.

This year’s theme “Stand Up, Speak Up, Be the Voice of the Voiceless” is designed to help us reflect on our responsibility to speak out against injustice and oppression.

The Week of Prayer Guide is available in English and French, with Spanish to come soon. We encourage you to adapt the guide for  your own local context and use it to help spark discussions and take action where needed.  The guide is also intended as a source of inspiration—to pray, to reflect, to collaborate—and to ensure both collectively and individually, we become the voice of the voiceless in our society.
