Since we are unable to meet in the Cathedral for monthly prayers, we suggest that you wear your badge and pause at 10:30am on the 1st Wednesday of each month, to pray, knowing that many other Mothers’ Union members will be praying at the same time.
It is hoped that each month the deanery who would have been leading Cathedral Prayers will compose a Prayer to be shared by all members in winchester.
The Prayer for July written by Rev Canon Diane Webster, MU Member in the Lyndhusrt Deanery:
Holy God, our creator, redeemer and source of life, we thank you for the knowledge of your love revealed to us in Jesus Christ and for the fellowship we share with one another within the Mothers’ Union. In these changing times, reveal to us ways in which we may continue our calling to support marriage and family life in our communities, and give encouragement to members around the world. Stengthen those who feel overwhelmed, ill or anxious and keep us alert to the needs of others as we begin to resume our activities. All this we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. May the Joy of Christ fill our thankful hearts. in Jesus name. Amen.
If you are looking for activities to do while you are confined to the house, you will find lots of resources on the central Mothers’ Union website. You can access them from this link here
If you have suggestions about how we can connect better with our members during this period of isolation then please let Sue Murphy – Diocesan Secretary know
