Mothers' Union Prayers

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 word I speak,
the prayer I breathe,
or the life I live.



The Mothers’ Union Prayer

Loving Lord,
We thank you for your love so freely given to us all.
We pray for the 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.


From Celtic Prayers – David Adam

In our caring for others,
God cares for us.
As we give our lives to others,
God gives himself to us.
As we pour out our love,
God pours his love into us.
God bless us and guide us.
God strengthen and refresh us.
God give us courage and hope,
So that his deep loving care is revealed through us.
As we love each other,
we grow in the love of God.
As we give ourselves to each other,
 God gives himself us.
 As we share our lives together,
God shares his life with us.
As we grow in awareness of each other,
we grow in awareness of God.
Let his love encircle our love. 
Let his life fill our lives.
Let him bind us as one together and one with him.

God is with you when the way is dark and life seems cold.
God is with you when the body is weak and you feel old.
God is with you when doubts arise and fears descend.
God is with you forever, my friend.
Go into this (day or night) in the fellowship of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and, as you go, remember: in the goodness of God you were born into this world; by the grace of God you have been kept all the day long, even to this hour; and by the love of God, fully revealed in the life of Jesus, you are being made Christ-like. 


Today may there be peace within us.
May we trust that we are exactly where we are meant to be.
May we not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith
in ourselves and others.
May we use the gifts that we have received and pass on the love that has been given to us.
May we be content with ourselves just the way we are.
Let this knowledge settle into our hearts and
allow our souls the freedom to sing, to dance, to praise and to love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

Prayer for those members who are unable to attend meetings:

Loving heavenly Father,
Lord of the world,
You know the secret thoughts of every heart 
and hear the prayers of all.
You have chosen us to work for you
and be as one in prayer.
Guide us in our prayerful task and
strenghten us to do your will.
Uphold is in our weakness and our doubt 
that those for whom we intercede
may truly come to know your healing peace and love.
We ask this in Jesus' name,
your only Son our Lord.
