Our Midday Prayers and Wave of Prayer  are included as an option on the Church of England Daily HOPE phone line. The free phone line also includes  materials also available digitally by the Church of England’s Communications team and a recording of the Church of England weekly national online service. We know that a majority of Mothers’ Union members are not connected to the internet or have weak internet connections. Therefore, we are delighted that they will now be able to listen in fellowship to our prayers which unite our movement and it’s 4 million members every day.

The Daily HOPE phoneline number is free and available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044 (for Mothers’ Union Midday Prayers please press option 7)

If you have online access please do join us daily at 12:00 (BST) on our Facebook page for our Midday Prayers


Wave of Prayer 


Our "Wave of Prayer" is a continuous expression of our commitment in prayer to each other. It runs throughout the year so that the work and members of each and every area in which Mothers' Union is active is prayed for at some point. We include this in our Midday Prayers.  You can see which areas we are praying for this month below.
