Prayer Power

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.
Amen

The Personal Prayer of Mary Sumner
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.
Amen

A Prayer of Commitment

   Mothers Union

       Lincoln Diocese 2018


Almighty God, we thank you 

for your love and care for us.

We thank you for Mothers’ Union 

and for all it means to so many 

people across the world.

In this year, when we remember 

our founder Mary Sumner, 

we pray that you will help us build 

on the firm foundations laid by her.

As she followed in the footsteps of 

Jesus, caring for those in her 

community and building up faith, 

may we too be a part of your mission.

When decisions are made 

in branch, cluster and Diocese, 

guide our thinking 

and prepare the way 

for your power to break through.

Into your hands we commit ourselves

knowing that we are secure 

in your love and everlasting grace.

We pray in the name 

of our beloved Saviour, Jesus Christ. 

Amen

The Prayer of ST. BENEDICT

O GRACIOUS AND HOLY FATHER
Give us wisdom to perceive thee
Intelligence to seek thee
Patience to wait for thee
Vision to behold thee
A heart to meditate upon thee
And a life to proclaim thee
Through the power of the Spirit
of Jesus Christ Our Lord.

St Benedict - c480-550

Benedict was the father of Western monasticism. He was the first person to try to understand how we can live together with any degree of authenticity. He laid out systems for leadership, ownership, belonging and shared living.

Eternal God,
who made Benedict
To become a wise master
In the school of your service
And a guide to many called to community
To follow the rule of Christ:
Grant that we may put your love before all else
And seek with joy
The way of your commandments;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord,
Who is alive and reigns with you,
In the unity of the Holy Spirit,

One God, now and forever, Amen.
