The SDB World Federation is calling Seventh Day Baptists throughout the world to join together in prayer January 1 – 7, 2023. Since 1967, Seventh Day Baptists around the world have united in prayer during the first full week of January with the SDB Week of Prayer booklet. This year, the general author is Dr. Carlene Wynter, President of the British Seventh Day Baptist Conference.
The World Federation is encouraging prayers each day of the week for all countries of the world where Seventh Day Baptists exist; not just the countries which are members of the World Federation. Participants are referred to the SDB World Federation website where some basic information is provided about the churches in each country.
This year’s week of prayer meditations are based on a collection of reflections, presentations, studies, and sermons from The British Conference’s 2021/22 theme, “Rising from the Ashes.” The subtheme is “How to Rise from Challenging Circumstances.” The daily meditations are co-authored by: Pastor Norman Fearon, Evangelist Hurley Taylor, Pastor Andy Samuels, and Dr. Carlene Wynter.
