The Mothers' Union Prayer


Loving Lord,

We thank 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 your hands across the world.

In Jesus' name.





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 by the word I speak, the prayer I breathe, or the life I live. Amen.


Written in 1876 by Mothers' Union founder, Mary Sumner.


Our diocesan prayer



we hold before you

our family in the

Diocese of Swansea

and Brecon

and we open our hearts

and minds to your Spirit:

Bless us as we gather

in your name;

Guide us as we grow

into the likeness of your Son;

Lead us by your Spirit

to go out and

make disciples of others.

God of our journeying,

be our way

and our truth and our life;

our beginning and our end.

We pray through Jesus our Lord.
