In a wonderful presentation at the Women‘s congress 2010 in Hawaii, Europe was assigned to Latin America. Standing on stage Livija Lame ( president of Eu-rope) and Marlene Baltazar.( president of Latin America) handed over colored hearts as a symbol of their Prayer Part-nership.
To see all the presidents standing there in a row with their colored shawls and hearts was a beautiful sight, which reminded me of a rainbow. Symbol of hope.

Hope for a better world. Hope for Unity. Hope for people. Hope for children. Hope for men. Hope for women.
And WE can do it: Praying alone. Praying with our husbands. Teaching our children how to talk with their heavenly Father. Praying with two or three people. Praying with our local women‘s group. Organizing a Day of Prayer (DOP) on the 1st of November every year. The programme is prepared and on the web www.bwawd.org

There are so many ways to pray! And prayer works!

We hope to share prayers with the Latin American women during the coming 5 years, helping one another to pray for Europe and Latin America.

"Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf." 2 Corinth. 1,11
