Mothers Prayers



Pray For our Children 

Mothers Prayers was formed to help those mothers who wished to pray together for their children and grandchildren and to find the support they needed. Mothers and Grandmothers of our parish will get together every Thursday from 10:00 am to 11:00 am beginning August 1st 2019. A cuppa will follow each meeting. 

If you are unable to make it to the meeting but will like the group to pray for your children please send us your prayer petition. 

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.


Would you and a few mothers like to get together on a regular basis for mothers prayers, please contact the Parish office.

If you would like this group to pray for your children, you are most welcome to send us your petitions. 


    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.

    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.
