Myanmar Floods 

We are currently praying for all those affecred by the floods in Myanmar 

Loving Lord,
we pray for all affected once more by the floods in Myanmar:
for those who have lost their homes or who are cut off by the waters we pray for your comfort and for practical help; for those working tirelessly to reach households with provisions we pray you will renew their strength and lift their spirits.
Lord of the wind and the waves please bring hope and peace into this desperate situation and into the lives of all caught up in it.
In your mercy and grace.
Amen

 

Seasonal Prayers 

Mothers’ Union prayers often reflect the Anglican Church diary. 

 

The Mary Sumner Prayer

Perfect for all seasons and situations:

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. Amen.
