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.

Our monthly prayers for March are prepared by Lyndhurst Deanery and can be downloaded in ‘word’ here MU cathedral Prayers 3rd March 21

MU CATHEDRAL PRAYERS for 3rd March 2021
Let us pray
In this Lenten season we pray
Almighty God whose Son, Jesus Christ fasted 40 days in the wilderness, and who was tempted as we are, yet without sin, give us grace to discipline ourselves in obedience to your Spirit and as You know our weakness, so may we know Your power to save,
Father God may we overflow with hope and confidence in Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen
We give you heartfelt thanks for your power made perfect in our weakness. We put our hope and trust in you as we navigate the challenges and restrictions caused by the corona virus pandemic. We bring to you all our Mothers Union members worldwide who are suffering from the virus, in health, bereavement and loss of livelihood. Help us to rebuild hope and confidence as we trust You to help us continue to work together to serve the needs of families throughout our nations and beyond.
Please guide our Worldwide President, national and diocesan presidents and our trustees in all their decisions
Father God, may they overflow with hope and confidence by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen
In the Wave of prayer today we pray for Yei Luweero in Uganda, On the Lake in Nigeria, Grafton in Australia , Armagh in All Ireland and South West Kerala in India
