Parish Life at St Clare's

‘Mothers Prayers’ was launched in England in 1995 by two grandmothers who felt led by the Lord to pray in a special way for their children. Through prayer, they learned that Jesus wishes all mothers to surrender their children into His care, to take away pain from the parents and to pour blessings on their children. ‘Mother’s prayers’ has now spread throughout the world and is in over 90 countries and there have been many wonderful answers to prayers.

A prayer group may be started with only two mothers to a maximum of eight. Usually members meet every week. They obey the strict rule of confidentiality and anything that is said at the meeting must never be repeated. As mothers learn to trust each other, through their prayers and sharing together, their burdens become lighter.

All groups of mothers around the world unite in prayers for the same intentions during three days four times a year. These three days of prayer are in the last weekends of January, March, June and September.

The first day, Friday we spend time asking the Holy Spirit to reveal areas of our lives for which we need to ask forgiveness.
The second day, Saturday we ask the Lord for forgiveness for those in authority who are acting contrary to His will, and for all those who by their actions are harming our children and our society.
The third day, Sunday is a day of Praise and Thanksgiving.

Mark 9:23-24

And Jesus said to him,
” ‘If You can?’ All things are possible to him who believes.”

Immediately the boy’s father cried out and said, “I do believe; help my unbelief.”

Matthew 18:20

Jesus said

“That when two or more are gathered in my name, there will I be also.”

Philippians 3:8

More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ
