The Mother's Union Prayer
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.
The Mary Sumner 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 words I speak,
the prayer I breathe, or the life I live.
Mary Sumner: (M.U. Founder 1876)
Daily Prayer Diary
In Families Worldwide we publish the Wave of Prayer along with a daily prayer diary. Prayer is central to our work as Mothers’ Union and this expression of commitment allows us to support families and projects around the globe.
