Mothers’ Union Prayer
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 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.
Prayers for 2021
whose loving kindness has no limits,
teach us afresh the way of Christ.
Where we have felt discouraged,
renew us through signs of hope
where we have been tempted to give up,
grant us strength and faith to face the day;
where we have grown anxious about the future,
give us courage to plant the seeds of tomorrow
in acts of radical love today.
Renew us by your Spirit
and set us free to serve you
so that the whole of creation
may rejoice in your name.
Richard Andrew, Darlington Methodist District Chair
May God, giver of living water touch our thirsty souls;
may the refreshing life of Jesus invigorate our being;
may the renewing energy of the Spirit flow brightly through us into our community of faith, of family, of friends.
