There’s a wealth of prayer resources for the new theme and for our Wave of Prayer on the Mothers’ Union website www.mothersunion.org , both from the Home Page and the members’ pages.

Almighty God,We thank you that we have been joined together in unity through the love of Christ. Amen


The Wave of Prayer is an offering of prayer from and for Mothers' Union around the world. It is something that concerns every member as all take part in prayer for Mothers' Union in each diocese of the Anglican Communion in turn. Specific days in the year are therefore allocated to each diocese when prayers are focused on their work and needs.


Lord we thank you for our links with the dioceses of Asaba, Jos, Lafia, Makurdi and Yola. We pray for Nigeria, its Government and people. We praise you for the growth you have granted to the church and for our sisters' enthusiasm for the Gospel in diffucult circumstances. We pray for them in their daily lives and in all their work for the church. We pray for their families and those they seek to serve. Keep them safe from HIV/AIDS, from malaria and from all the other diseases that threaten their well-being. Please help them to nourish their families in body and spirit and to show Your Way to their neighbours.


We thank you for our linked diocese of Lahore in Pakistan, for their persistence as a minority Faith. We pray for the Church in Pakistan that it may clearly show forth Your Way. We pray that our members may be given the strength and courage to weather all difficulties in the serene knowledge of your love and care.


We thank you for the shelter our Sudanese members have found in Cairo and for the work they do for others. We pray for both Egypt and Sudan, for blessings and peace.


We pray for our own Diocese of Guildford - for our Bishops, our clergy and our people, for town and country, rich and poor, for the work we do and the many needs we do not meet.

God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. Ephesians 3.20
