International Day of Prayer – 10 June 2018

Published on June 5, 2018

On 10 June 1968 the Girls’ Brigade as we know it today was born.  Of course, its roots go way back to 1883 when Margaret Lyttle first had her vision that led to the foundation of The Girls’ Brigade of Ireland.  As we hold our International Day of Prayer this year, we celebrate 125 years of FRUITFUL & OVERFLOWING ministry, and we ask you to focus your prayers on three things:

Remember the past: Give thanks for Margaret Lyttle and other faithful pioneers who started GB in different parts of the world

Celebrate the present: Pray that all the girls and young women who are part of our GB family today will be blessed through their contact with us

Commend the future into God’s hands: Ask that we may continue to hold fast to our values and foundations whilst adapting our methods and mission as we continue, with God’s help,  to bring hope to future generations of young women


10 June falls on a Sunday this year so as well as bringing your own prayers, why not ask your churches to support us with their prayers in this our 125th celebratory year!
