This year’s upcoming World Day of Prayer service was written by native Chilean women.

Every year churches around the world gather to learn about and pray for a country in need.

And following last year’s massive 8.8 magnitude earthquake that shook Chile, the country was chosen for the annual prayer event.

Participants of World Day of Prayer will learn about the country’s history and struggles, and will pray for their recovery.

More than 170 countries around the world and 2,000 communities are participating.

In Chilliwack, there will be two services; one at Carman United Church at 1 p.m. and the other at Chilliwack United Church at 1:30 p.m.

The keynote speaker for the service at Chilliwack United Church will be Susan Rutherford who has been to Chile several times and who has family still living there.

World Day of Prayer has been an annual event since 1922 and is celebrated on the first Friday of March.
