Thought for the Week 4 August 2019

Anglican Mothers Union Australia

Hands across the world

Thanks be to God for Mary Sumner’s extraordinary gift of loving care and organisational ability. With our inheritance, Families Worldwide, we connect through prayer with Anglican women and men throughout the world. Take a little time to say the names in ‘The Wave of Prayer’. You may even reach out your hand in friendship or blessing, comfort or happiness, bearing burdens we do not know.

Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfil the law of

Christ. Galatians 6:2

Vulnerability is a burden so many women and girls suffer. As we reach out to those in Malawi, we pray that, with education and encouragement and the faith of Mothers’ Union members across the world, they may be healed of their sorrows and shame, and become self-assured and valued members of their communities.
