Anglican Mothers Union Australia

Fatherhood

The father of the prodigal son runs to greet him who disobeyed and dishonoured him. Hear our prayers, heavenly Father, for your loving kindness to tend us. May the Mothers’ Union be strong in guiding fathers and mothers into the way of love.

See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. 1 John 3:1a
