Come – Everything is Ready”

Artist: Rezka Arnuš

Each year, the World Day of Prayer worship service has a special theme that is prepared by a specific country.  The women of the committee selected for the World Day of Prayer develop a common worship, bible studies, a children`s service and information about their country.

For 2019, the theme is Come-Everything is Ready and has been developed by the Women`s Committee of Slovenia. In 2020 the theme is Rise! Take your Mat and Walk! - Zimbabwe. In 2021 the theme is Build on a Strong Foundation - Vanuatu
