Mothers' Union Prayer

Loving Lord, we thank you for your love so freely given to us all.

We pray for families around the world.

Bless the work of the Mothers' Union as we seek to share your love

through the encouragement, strengthening and support of marriage and family life.

Empowered by your Spirit, may we be united in prayer and worship,

and in love and service reach out as your hands across the world.

In Jesus' name. Amen


Mary Sumner's Prayer

All this day, O Lord,

let me touch as many lives as possible for thee,

and every life I touch do thou by thy Spirit quicken,

whether through the word I speak,

the prayer I breathe or the life I live.
