MU Sydney is part of the worldwide Mothers’ Union, an international Christian organisation that seeks to support families worldwide.
In 83 countries, Mothers’ Union members share the vision to bring about a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful and flourishing relationships.
We actively pursue this goal through prayer, programmes, policy work and community relationships.
As you explore our website we hope you find plenty to inform and encourage you to support the goals and work of MU Sydney.
Prayer is central to our work as Mothers’ Union. Each day, at midday, members pause to pray.
The Wave of Prayer is a continuous expression of our commitment in prayer to each other, which runs throughout the year and encompasses all the places in which we are represented.
This week Wednesday 27, Thursday 28 and Friday 29 July MU Sydney will specifically be remembered in prayer by MU members around the world.
John 1:4-5:4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all humanity. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Darkness can only exist in the absence of light. Once light is introduced, the darkness disappears and can only reappear when the light is removed.
In the beginning humans walked and talked directly with God, but when they chose to disobey God and rule their own lives, this contact with God was cut off and death resulted. People’s vision of God was shadowy and obscured. God changed that when Jesus came to restore our relationship with God. The life he brought us switched on the light and showed us what God is like.
Eternal life with God is his gift to us, it’s not something we can earn, just like our life here on earth was given to us by our parents, and like any gift, it can be accepted or rejected.
Have you chosen to accept the gift of life God gave us through Jesus? Are you living in the light he brought, or are you still in darkness?
Lord Jesus, thank you for bringing life and light and for offering to be my Saviour and my Lord. Amen
