Through the WDP offering women share their resources with women and children around the world. It is the responsibility of the WDP National Committees to determine the use and distribution of the offering.  As women are uniting in prayer with women around the world, asking God to relieve their suffering, bring healing, mend brokenness, overcome barriers, and to bring peace, justice and well being; they are also putting together whatever they can give as their offering.  In the same spirit WDP women on the local level, women in denominational women’s organizations, and WDP Committee Members themselves give their time and skills as voluntary services to the work of World Day of Prayer.
