Wave of Prayer

Mothers’ Union expresses its Christian identity through its life of prayer and worship. It is this spiritual life together which underpins our work with families and communities. Every day a wave of prayer goes around the world as members stop and pray in the middle of the day to pray for the work of the Mothers’ Union and international issues. These daily prayers follow an annual pattern which means that every Mothers’ Union region is prayed for at least once during the year. 

Please join us in prayer for the Mothers’ Union’s work around the world. Below is a calendar for the current month with the places we are asking for prayers for.

Final Blessing

I bind myself today: To the power of God to guide me.  To the might of God to uphold me.  To the wisdom of God to teach me.  The eye of God to watch over me.  The ear of God to hear me.  The word of God to speak to me.  The way of God to lie before me.  The host of God to defend me. Amen.  St Patrick
