Mothers’ Union and Prayer

The Mothers’ Union is founded on prayer and it underpins all our work.

Our midday prayers are said by members around the world every day which creates a continual cycle of prayer across our globe. We are connected to each other via our Wave of Prayer which allows us to ask God’s blessing and support for the work we undertake in His name. Our Indoor Member Prayer Circle is often described as our powerhouse of prayer and is a wonderful way for long serving dedicated members to still be involved in the MU. If you have members who are no longer able to get to branch meetings please consider offering them the option of this type of membership.

We have the Diocesan prayer chain which operates via email and allows members to pray for individuals or intentions. If you have a request, please use this contact form. If you would like to be involved in praying for the people we hear about, please contact Katy Kerr.

We also have a diocesan intercessions calendar, which can be downloaded here.

Every day a wave of prayer goes around the world as members stop and pray in the middle of the day for the work of Mothers’ Union and international issues. These daily prayers follow an annual pattern which means that every Mothers’ Union region is prayed for at least once during the year. Each diocese has special links with different parts of the world; Oxford is linked with diocese in Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea and Tanzania.
