Prayer

Thank you for your prayers

We would not be as effective in the work we do without your prayers; thank you for joining with us in this way. Please continue to pray for our work, our volunteers and those we are working with.

“We can do great things after we pray, but we cannot do great things until we pray – Let us pray!”

Current prayer points

  • We're now recruiting for new staff members to join our dedicated overseas staff team for next year and have quite a few gaps to fill. These roles are challenging to recruit for as they are self-funding. Our overseas staff have all answered a call from God to take up their role, so please ask Jesus to stir hearts and minds for next year's campaigns. Also, please pray for volunteers to answer the call to serve overseas in the countries we work in. 
  •  Cambodia: Pray for safety and cohesion of the team working in Cambodia in November to start building a new classroom block. The volunteers will also be converting a single storey house into a two-storey building to give families refuge during the floods.  Recent flash flooding in Phnom Penh has caused devastation to many of its population, including our partners and project at the school and homes in Happy Village. A ton of sand and silt had to be cleared from the school that we work at and families in single storey homes have been made homeless. Please join us to pray for the health and safety of the people affected by these flash floods. Ask for God’s intervention in tackling the ongoing flooding problem in Happy Village and also to provide us with additional volunteers for the medical team in January next year.
  • Malawi: Give thanks for the 8 years' of dedication by our volunteers and leaders to build a new school in Malawi which now has  8 classrooms with 9 teachers providing education for over 600 children, as well as English classes for many adults too. Give thanks too that God has faithfully provided adequate funding to make this possible. 
  • India: Pray that we will finish well and that our partner EHA Hospital will continue the great work they are doing with a prayer of blessing and provision over their future. Pray for our volunteers as they are so far from home and are dealing with various issues back home.
  • Sierra Leone: Pray for Roger, Steph and Brian as they lead the team in Sierra Leone, and pray that the Lord will unify the team. We ask that we will see the hand of God in all the projects and that the rain will not be a hindrance to our work. Please also pray for people's hearts to be stirred for mission in Sierra Leone next year.
  • Zambia – Luampa: Please pray for Kate as she leads the team, and also that there will be no transportation issues for the team. This medical team work with a mission hospital here and really do change and save lives with the expertise and help that they offer. Pray a blessing and wisdom over them and for protection as they work for His glory. Also thanksgiving as Kate has recently raised over £8,000 to provide a new ultrasound machine for them, which is incredible.
  • Rukungiri – Pray for protection for the team and that the enemy will not bring any distractions to the staff or volunteers, asking that the Lord will lead the team in all that they do.
  • MDUK: Give thanks for the recent teams in Preston and London, for the lives they impacted and that their experience may fire them up for His glory. Please also pray for teams next year in these locations as well as Nottingham - that God may raise up Kingdom builders to join a 3-day team.
  • Pray to get Mission Direct into churches: We need more people to be talking to their churches and communities about their experience with Mission Direct. Please pray that volunteers would seek opportunities for us to join them in presenting their trip and our work to their church and that this would encourage support as well as more volunteers to be stirred up to help.
