Mary Sumner Day Prayer Walk 2016. The Quiet Garden at The See House. On Saturday, August 6th members and friends enjoyed an afternoon of rest and wonderful, prayerful refreshment in the The See House Quiet Garden. It was inspirational to hear of Mary Sumner and other Christian women who were role models for others, as well as prayerfully reflecting on the different features of the garden.Mary Sumner 3

May God continue to bless and inspire them on their journey.

A prayer to celebrate the gift of Mothers’ Union:

Loving Lord,

We give you thanks for the far-reaching vision

of our founder, Mary Sumner.

We look back with gratitude and praise for her witness,

and for all that has been achieved thus far

in the name of Mothers’ Union worldwide.


As we look forward with faith for all that is to come

help us to build a future together

which will enable our work to flourish;

through far-reaching vision

and commitment to your will. Amen


The Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.  Psalm 100:5
