A Prayer for Mothering Sunday

O God from whom every family on earth takes its name,

Bless, we pray, all your children:

Families of all shapes and sizes;

People rejoicing in relationships;

People struggling with relationships;

The happily single, and all who share the blessings of friendship.

In all our diversity of lifestyle and experience,

Help us to know that we are held in your love. 


Methodist Central Hall, Westminster and the London District of the Methodist Church have offered the following prayer in response to the week's events in Westminster:

Loving Creator God,
In the midst of chaos and uncertainty, grant your peace.
To those injured and frightened by events in Westminster, grant your healing.
To the police, those who work in Parliament
and members of the public, grant your protection.
May those who are motivated by hate be transformed by love.
May those who care for a broken world by strengthened by love.
May we be guided by your Spirit as we try to find words of comfort
and be guided in our actions by the example of your Son, Jesus Christ,
in whose name we pray.
