We work in difficult places, where people are suffering and danger is real. As a non-denominational Christian organization, we value prayer as a way to acknowledge our need for God’s blessing on all of our efforts. We pray for those we serve, for our volunteer teams, and for partners working in the field.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself. – Luke 10:27
Current Prayer Requests
PRAYING FOR RACIAL JUSTICE
Lord, we are filled with deep anguish. We cry out to you, in a unifying cry of solidarity with our oppressed brothers and sisters, both here and around the world. As we fast, we realign our hearts with the Father’s toward reconciliation, restoration and peace.
PRAYING OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE
Pray that God would continue to open doors for us to expand our service reach and provide COVID-19 support to the most vulnerable and marginalized in our community. Pray that we are able to quickly respond to hotspots to help prevent the spread of this virus and save lives. Pray also for the protection of our staff and volunteers as they provide COVID-19 support and resume non-emergency dental services to the people in greatest need. Pray for the recruitment of dental and medical volunteers so we can meet the growing needs of our region. Finally, pray for wisdom for our state and federal leaders in deciding when it is safe to relax current restrictions.
PRAYING IN TIMES OF VIOLENCE AGAINST HUMANITY
God, we are very disturbed by the suffering of persecuted people around the world — especially the Rohingya people of Myanmar. We pray that the violence will stop. We pray for children to be reunited with their families; for mothers as they protect and provide necessities for their babies and children; and for the government, aid agencies, and Medical Teams staff. Give wisdom to the staff and local partners, that they find the best means to provide urgently needed shelter, clean water, food, and health care. We pray for all refugees in Bangladesh to experience a place of safety and peace of mind.
PRAYING FOR REFUGEE GROUPS IN UGANDA
Please pray for protection, healing and comfort for the thousands of South Sudanese and Congolese refugees seeking safer lives in Uganda. Pray that staff will have the resources they need to give care to the infants, mothers and families in desperate need. Pray that no child will go without food, shelter or medicine. Pray that those inflicting violence in South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo will be called to peace.
