A Prayer of Commitment
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.
The Prayer of ST. BENEDICT
O GRACIOUS AND HOLY FATHER
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.
