The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity a worldwide movement of Christians of many denominations, languages, and great diversity of race and culture, who are engaged in praying and working for the unity of Christians in the service of the wider redemption, unity and peace of all peoples. Every year the dates are the same, 18 to 25 January, regardless of the days of the week. Praying for unity does not involve prayer for any specific schemes for unity. It is about being faithful to the prayer of Jesus Christ, as seen in John 17, 'that they may be one'. The theme for 2007 is 'He even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak,' based on Mark 7.31 - 37.

The theme was chosen by the Churches of South Africa, at the request of the international committee, which represents Faith and Order of the World Council of Churches, and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.
