Pray | Mission Direct


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

  • Cambodia: Praise God for a great two weeks with the first team of 2020 - a very hard-working team, active at both the building site and working at a clinic. The team returned on 1st Feb.

    Please pray for the next team, leaving on the 9th.

    Please also pray for ongoing plans for our next location in Cambodia, starting in 2021 as this will be our final year in Phnom Penh. We've served in Phnom Penh since 2007, and whilst we will continue to support and work with Serve Cambodia in the country, we leave many incredible relationships behind in Phnom Penh. Pray for their prosperity and to know Jesus' love for them.

    Please give thanks for Penny Elvin (team 4 will be the last she leads in Cambodia) and pray for the final team to be a huge success. Prayers for a few more volunteers to sign up would be appreciated.

    Whilst Mission Direct will still be supporting Serve Cambodia as our long-term partner in Cambodia, we expect that 2020 will complete our work in Phnom Penh with New Happy Village - so prayer around wisdom and direction for the future is also deeply appreciated.

  • The Gambia: Please pray for our upcoming trip to The Gambia - our second in this new location for MD. Please pray for a few more volunteers to sign up to the team and for God to provide. The team leaves 9th March.

    Please also pray specifically that the right support staff will be found to support our country manager.

  • Moldova: Please pray for another member of volunteer staff to join us for our July/August teams this year to help us facilitate short-term mission for others and help progress the project.

    We hope to be taking at least one youth group on one of these teams, so a staff member with experience with youth would be superb.

  • The Gambia: Our team travelling in March will be our second team following our pilot team at the end of 2019.

    Pray that the funds will be released by our partner's funders without any restrictions, so that work can begin on the much needed dormitories.

  • Kenya: Please pray for the first team which travels at the end of this month. Also keep Regional Manager, Chris Ducker, in your prayers as he travels to Kenya this month to evaluate various project options for 2021.

  • Funding: Please give thanks for the generosity of many supporters, who have helped us to reduce our 2019 deficit. Please pray for God's provision of £20,000 more to bridge the gap.

  • Summer Campaigns:
    We are in our final stages of planning our summer campaigns; please pray that all that we desire to do will bring glory and honour to God.

  • New processes: There are a number of initiatives that will be introduced this year, please pray for God’s guidance.

  • New staff teams: Pray for all those joining MD for the first time as staff team members, pray for their family and friends

  • Our volunteers: Pray for those serving with us to have a genuine sense of purpose as they serve across the various countries. Please pray for people to respond to God's call to short-term mission and stir them up to join a team.
