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.

One of our strengths is our strong sense of prayer and we continually pray for one another.

This is evidenced in our Canadian Wave of Prayer, where we pray for different dioceses and members of the society during midday prayers.
