Global Day 2020 Midday Prayers

 
 
A prayer to end the Cup of Tea for No More 1 in 3 reflection and lead into Midday Prayers
 
United in resolve
our voices join together
to speak out for the voiceless,
and proclaim the righteousness of God.
 
God of justice and righteousness,
use us to speak against domestic abuse
with a clear and challenging voice
in a world where the vulnerable strive to be heard.
 
May our voices be heard in places of influence
on behalf of those who suffer in silence.
Make us strong and effective advocates
for those whose voice is too weak to be heard.
 
We worship our holy Lord;
we pray for his kingdom on earth.
May his justice set the captives free
and his righteousness reign forever. Amen
 
Midday Prayers
 
We unite together with our fellow members across the world in our Wave of Prayer, to bring our prayers to God for one another and the world he has called us to serve.
 
Loving Lord, we draw near in faith
trusting not in the strength of our prayers
but in your power to answer.
 
We pray for the work of our members worldwide to combat domestic abuse;
for their highlighting of the issue, their petitioning of governments
and their work with victims and survivors.
 
As a global family we embrace our mission to share your love
through speaking out for the vulnerable.
Help us play our part in creating a just and equal society
 
Loving Lord, we draw near in faith.
We pray for the dawn of a better world
where all may live in safety. Amen
 
Lord, we pray for the witness and work of Mothers’ Union worldwide.
Today we pray for our members in:
Akot in South Sudan; South West Tanganyika in Tanzania;
Aba & Irele-Ese Odo in Nigeria; Coventry in England and Cuttack in India
   
We go from here, united in voice,
to proclaim the justice and righteousness of God
and the growth of his kingdom on earth.

Amen


 

Get Involved – Get Knitting!






Part of our Global Day campaign is thinking about a “Cup of tea for no more 1 in 3”. We had planned that coffee and tea mornings would be a way to fundraise and draw attention and you will see that there is also an online “Cup of tea for no more 1 in 3” reflection at 11.30am on the day.
 
Therefore we produced a pattern for a No More 1 in 3 tea cosy! We encourage members to still go ahead and knit these – use them as awareness for the campaign and why not sell them to friends and family to raise money for Mothers’ Union!
 
Also we would love to see your creations – send them to Communications@mothersunion.org or tag us on your photos online!

Cut off the yarn with about 15 cm spare and draw through the remaining stitches.
 
After you have knitted the second side and drawn the yarn through these stitches, tie the two ends together to secure the top.
 
To make up
 
Sew the sides together, leaving a gap for the handle and the spout.
 
For the spout side, I sewed 9cm down from the top and 3.5cm up from the bottom and for the handle side, I sewed 7cm down from the top and 2cm up from the bottom.
 
To finish
 
Make a pompom using both colours and add to the top of your tea cosy.
