The 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 lovethrough 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

Our Christian faith is at the heart of our charity, and our prayer and worship is central to our work. We believe that prayer can be transformational and can make a huge difference to lives on an individual and community basis. 

Mothers' Union worldwide work in partnership with churches to serve God in local communities, and to support clergy with our faith and worship resources - as well as with practical help such as supporting baptismal families. We have a network of diocesan chaplains supporting the faith of our members as well as acting as a link between the Church and Mothers' Union. Our Central Chaplain is the Right Revd Andrew Proud, Bishop of Reading - in his role he supports both members and staff as well as being our advocate within the wider Church.   

We are one of the Anglican Mission Agencies and our members play a vital role within the Anglican Communion, as our Patron The Most Revd Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury says "Mothers' Union is the heart and love of the Church". 
 
We have many prayer and worship resources including services, Bible studies and seasonal material which can be found below as well as the opportunity to join with our midday prayers and submit a prayer request.
