Mothers Prayers

Mothers Prayers logo
Mothers Prayers was started in England in November 1995 and has spread rapidly throughout the world with contacts in over 100 countries and has the approval, support and blessing of Christian leaders of all denominations.
There are now thousands of groups around the world. Two grandmothers, Veronica and her sister-in-law Sandra, felt led by the Lord to start Mothers Prayers and to pray in a special way for their children.
They felt that they should bring all the pain and the worries they had for their children to Him and to trust in His words "Ask and you will receive". Through this promise, they understood that the Lord is just waiting to take away pain and to bless and heal them and their children when they come to Him in Faith. During these years there have been many, many wonderful answers to prayers including children coming off drugs, children returning home after being absent for many years, improvements in children’s health and relationships (in the family and at school).
The mothers also have been blessed and have experienced a great peace.

Meeting format

Every meeting is given to the Holy Spirit for guidance and therefore we find that they are all slightly different, sometimes the emphasis is on Prise, other times on reading and praying the Scriptures – other times longer is spent on sharing and praying for each child.
At these meetings mothers may share with each other in a personal way, and they need to know that everything they say will be kept confidential.

Our Prayer

Lord Jesus, we come before you as mothers, wanting you to bless our children, and all children throughout the world.
We thank you for our children – they are a precious gift to us. Help us, always to remember this, especially when they are in difficulties
Lord, they live in a troubled world – a world that does not always acknowledge you, – a world that may sometimes cause them to be laughed at if they admit to belief in you.
Help them to be strong, Lord. Helps us to know that you are always with us – sharing in the joys and in the sorrows, joining us in the laughter and weeping with us in the pain.
Please give us all the graces we need, to fulfil your plans for our lives and for our duties in our families. You are Almighty God. You can change things.
So we turn to you in faith and love knowing that you will answer our prayers. Lord let us always remember how much you love us and our children and how you urge us to come to you with our problems.
Amen
