Day of Prayer

Dear Editor:

I want to commend Bishop David Hamilton and the women of the Pagosa Springs Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for hosting an extraordinarily spiritual and ecumenical prayer event Friday March 7th. Women representing several local Christian denominations teamed up to provide a powerful program that was not only informational but also themed on the message of the Samaritan woman’s encounter with Jesus at Jacob’s Well (John Ch. 4).

World Day of Prayer is a global, ecumenical movement of Christian women joined together to observe a common day of prayer each year on the first Friday of March. This year’s event also coincided with the first Friday of the Lenten season. One cannot leave an event like that one without the intuitive conviction that the God whom we each, in our various ways, seek to know, love and serve was pleased.
