On Friday March 7, churchgoers from Toowoomba will join the faithful from around the world for the World Day of Prayer.

Starting with the first Ecumenical service at sunrise in Tonga, to the final sunset in Western Samoa, more than 1300 churches in 170 countries will share in worship over 36 hours.

This year, Christians will unite to focus their prayer on the country of Egypt. The theme of the day will be “Streams in the Desert”, and the prayers will be guided by a common prayer service booklet prepared by the people of Egypt.

Many will be aware of the suffering of fellow brothers and sisters in Egypt, therefore all Christians are invited to join together in prayer.

Toowoomba has an active Egyptian Christian community and on the day Ruth Mossad will be sharing at HumeRidge Church of Christ and Onsy Roufaeil will be sharing at Wilsonton Uniting Church. Growing up in Egypt and having a heart for their homeland, Ruth and Onsy are sure to encourage and inspire all with their stories and love for Jesus
