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 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 Mothers’ Union’s work around the world. Below is a calendar for this month with the places we are asking for prayers for. You can also find our prayers daily on Twitter @mothersunion
Every Monday to Friday prayers are said at Noon (12.00 pm) in the chapel of Mary Sumner House in Westminster, London. These are open to all, whether staff or visitors. Do join us when visiting the city.
