The Prayer and Spirituality Department seeks to encourage MU members in their vocation of worship, prayer and deepening spirituality.
The department seeks to uphold the Third Object of Mothers’ Union:
To maintain a world wide fellowship of Christians united in prayer,
worship and service.
Prayer is a focal part of MU’s work and service. The P&S Department seeks to encourage members in their prayer lives and spiritual growth. It provides resources for personal prayer, spiritual guidance and occasions when MU members come together for corporate worship.
