Praying with Purpose
A variety of resources to encourage groups and individuals to support in prayer the practical aspects of Mothers’ Union’s mission.
The aim of Praying with Purpose is to help build our faith for prayer, and make it as accessible as possible for a wide variety of people.
It provides tools both for groups and individuals at home as we come to pray for each other, for projects and for initiatives. As we do this we live out our aim to base everything we do as Mothers’ Union on a foundation of prayer.
Praying with Purpose consists of a number of resources from which can be selected prayer ideas to put together a “bespoke” prayer time for a particular need. At the heart of the resources are templates for prayer times into which chosen ideas can be incorporated. These follow a pattern, which starts by building faith, giving thanks for answered prayer, intercession for current needs and ends with blessing. The emphasis is on variety in praying so that all who participate can feel both comfortable and inspired to pray!
As groups and individuals experience answers to prayer and grow in confidence then it is hoped that they will feel free to adapt the resources provided and to use their own prayer ideas. Praying with Purpose is intended to be a “living” resource; growing and changing as new ideas from those who use it are included.
