Written by G Njuguna on January 20, 2023
Kenya Christian Professionals Fellowship (KCPF) is inviting Christians in Nairobi for a week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2023 and the Ecumenical Prayer Breakfast which will be held on Saturday, 21st January 2023 at the Parklands Baptist Church from 7:30 am.
Every year since 1908, Christians across the globe join together in a Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (WPCU) organized by the Roman Catholic Church and the World Council of Churches. The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an ecumenical Christian observance in the Christian calendar that is celebrated internationally. Traditionally, the week of prayer is celebrated from 18th January to 25th January.
In observance of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, since 2013, KCPF has been celebrating the Week of Prayer and holding an Annual Ecumenical Prayer Breakfast which brings together all Christians in prayer reminding them of Jesus’s Prayer to his disciples that ‘ All may be One’ (John 17:21).
The leadership and members of KCPF together with other guests gather to pray for different personal and corporate needs. Rotationally, the prayers are led by church leaders from our major partners, that is; Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB), Evangelical Alliance Of Kenya (EAK), and National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK).
The theme for WPCU 2023 is ”Do good; Seek justice” drawn from Isaiah 1:17.
