MOTHERS’ UNION PRAYER

Loving Lord,
We pray for families around the world.
Bless the work of the Mothers’ Union as we seek
to share your love through 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

 
THE PERSONAL PRAYER OF MARY SUMNER
 
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
