The Global Day of Prayer (GDP) was celebrated in Madagascar on 8th June 2019. Lead by the Malagasy Bible Society (MBS) and the Scripture Union (SU), this day is dedicated to praying for all countries. This year, all Christians were invited to participate in a Walk for Christ and then to pray together at Mahamasina Stadium.
This movement was also celebrated in other parts of the country like Sambava and Antsiranana in the North, Antsirabe in the Center, Toamasina on the East Coast, Mahajanga in the West, and the South was represented by Ambositra and Fianarantsoa. This event was a great opportunity for Christians from every denomination to show that we are all one in Christ. Though efforts are still to be made to encourage such solidarity, GDP 2019 revealed that God is honoured and glorified in this world by our willingness to work together in His Name.
