Prayer - Bible and FlowersPrayer is at the heart of everything we do

Our prayer and worship are central to our work. We believe that prayer can be transformational and can make a huge difference to lives on an individual and community basis. 

Here in the diocese of Chichester we believe in praying with our feet moving, and our prayer with purpose underpins all our activities. We use our own prayer ideas and the resources available in the Mothers' Union main website, and we want our prayer to be a living link that keeps us together and which cannot be broken.

Mothers' Union Prayer

Loving Lord, we thank your 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.  Amen

The 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. 


A prayer to build hope and confidence from Sheran Harper, our worldwide President

We will walk in hope and confidence. 

Trusting each other, loving each other and together we will rebuild the hope and confidence of families and communities everywhere, always reaching forward as God’s hands and feet and reflecting a life filled with purpose and meaning, grace and love, peace and joy.
