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

  • Cambodia: Unfortunately, we have had to withdraw the planned projects in Sisophon due to circumstances beyond out control, affecting two teams in 2020.

    CEO, Wil and Regional Manager, Chris will be visiting the country later this month to investigate other new projects and prayers around the guidance of the Holy Spirit and obedience to God's will would be deeply appreciated. 

  • Zimbabwe: Please pray for the ongoing economic and environmental situation in the country, which seems to be deteriorating on a daily basis. Inflation is now more than 300%, the country can't afford the ink to print passports (and now has a backlog of over 370,000) and a chicken costs two weeks' wages.

    More than five million people in Zimbabwe – about a third of the population – need food aid, with many coming close to starving, the UN says. It has launched a $331m (£270m) appeal for aid as the country battles the effects of drought, a cyclone and an economic crisis.

    The UN’s World Food Programme (WFP) said many were “in crisis emergency mode… marching towards starvation”.

    More than one-third of the rural population, or some 3.6 million people, will be food insecure by October, and by January the figure is expected to increase to 5.5 million during the inter-harvest season, according to WFP. Moreover, most of Zimbabwe’s 60 districts will exhaust their maize stocks by October. (UN website) A loaf of bread now costs nine times more than it did a year ago.

    Please cover the nation in prayer.

    Mission Direct has worked in Zimbabwe since 2012 building classrooms and facilities for Joshua Dhube School in Mutare. In 2020, our teams return to build a block of 8 toilets for the school.

  • Zimbabwe: Please pray for our partner school as we look to begin a new chapter with them after 8 years with them. Please also give thanks for the generosity of volunteers, which enabled our partner to purchase shoes for some local orphaned children. 

  • Malawi: Give thanks for an incredible pilot team who have now returned from our new project here. The team raised over £9,000 towards the project, enabling us to do considerably more than what we had planned to be able to do. 

  • Dominican Republic: Please pray for clarity and God's wisdom around the way forward for our work here. 

  • The Gambia: Please pray over our very first team due to travel out in November and for our partners in their preparations. 

  • Zambia: Please continue to pray for Cry Community School which is in a very poor compound of Lusaka. The dismantling of the hall at Cry Community School has started with the demolition of the out-buildings. Please pray for their future and for God's provision for a new premises so children here can continue their education. 

  • MDUK: Please pray for our last two outreach teams of the year in London and Preston, due to serve with our partners later this month.
