This international Christian ecumenical observance, held annually between Jan 18 and Jan 25, began in 1908 as the Octave of Christian Unity and focuses on prayer for church unity.

Resources for the week were prepared by members of different churches in Indonesia, then edited and published by the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and the Commission on Faith and Order of the World Council of Churches.

In 1999, Malaysia became the first country outside Europe invited to prepare material for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity with the theme Behold I make all things new from Revelation 21:5.
