The Mothers’ Union has announced that its 2015 theme is ‘United in Prayer’.
The announcement comes following the MU’s General Meeting held in the Belfast Waterfront Hall in Northern Ireland, in June.
The new theme, with its focus on the centrality of prayer in the work of Mothers’ Union across the world, was said to be a development of the 2014 theme ‘Sowing the Future together’.
Daniel McAllister, Head of Fundraising and Communications for the organisation said, “As we continue to plan for the future and grow together, prayer is at the heart of all we do.
“As we look to build the community of Mothers’ Union, we unite with other members across the world, and particularly we are united in prayer. As we embark upon the new Wave of Prayer, with over 100 new links added, we have the exciting opportunity to pray for many more people.”
Mothers’ Union says it aims to help grow the sense of belonging worldwide through this Wave of Prayer initiative.
The organisation is currently developing themed resources to help them celebrate the new links, inspire members to pray and help them discern how and what to pray.
In September this year these resources will be made available through the Mothers’ Union website before the change takes effect on the 1st of January 2015.
