I came across some material about the mothers’ Prayers organization recently. There was an MP group at one of the parishes I was in. The Mothers Prayers organization was formed to gather mothers who wished to pray together for their children and grandchildren and to find the support they needed.
Mothers Prayers was started in England in November 1995 and has spread throughout the world with contacts in over 100 countries. It 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’. 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
I would be happy to hear from anyone who thought this might be a helpful group in our parish, not just among church-go-ers but across the wider parish family. Fr Bernard.
