Our Vision

Hearts on Fire with a Vision for growth


The Mothers' Union Prayer

As Mothers' Union members, prayer is an important part of our lives and the foundation of all our projects and work. We remember the world wide work of the Mothers' Union in our midday prayers, and pray regularly for each other, for our churches and communities both as individuals and in prayer groups.

Loving Lord
We thank you for your love so freely given to us all.
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.

Mary Sumner's Personal Prayer

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.
