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

  • Prayer for Zimbabwe - for a resolution to the hold of recruitment of teachers, resulting in staff shortage and classes having to combine. Our partner school here, Joshua Dhube, is facing the challenge of over 90 children per class currently. Please pray for them and for our continued work there. We also need a couple more staff members for our campaign in Zimbabwe this year, which launches in July. Please pray for God to stir up and rise up those He has prepared for this incredible experience.
  • Mission Direct UK - In April, our first MDUK team will be partnering with a charity in North London that supports immigrants and provides foster care for unaccompanied minors. We will be providing a make-over for six "safe-houses" during this 3-day team. Please pray for the wisdom of world leaders surrounding the refugee situation and pray for this new MDUK initiative.
  • Finances - Money remains a continual challenge for Mission Direct since we are a small charity and the overheads to run our UK office are disproportionally high compared to large charities. Exchange rates have also had a huge impact. Please pray for provision so that we can meet our financial commitments for the year ahead.
  • Brazil - Mission Direct's latest project in Rio, Brazil focuses on children's futures in the favela slums. Pray for our new partners and the safety of our staff team and volunteers. Pray that MD can make a real difference to the children here and for growth of this ambitious new project.
  • Kumi and Kenya - Would you please remember Kumi, Uganda and the people of Kenya in hour prayers. In Kumi, the crop has failed and people are truly suffering from a lack of food. In Kenya, the drought continues to impact lives - please pray for an end to this and for God's intervention. Kenya also begins their election period and would benefit from prayers for peace.
  • Sierra Leone - Prayers for our partners in Sierra Leone would be appreciated - especially the clinic at Bureh beach as it opens its doors to patients for the first time. Please also pray for funds to come in for the pharmacy at the SDA hospital.
  • Health and recuperation - Please include some prayers for health this month: For Stewart Dore in Zimbabwe - whose wife is sick and currently receiving medical treatment; Claire Hodgson (Dominican Republic staff) for the wellbeing of her and her family; Also for Geoff Spiller - overseas staff - as he takes a well-deserved rest after a long and fruitful campaign in Zambia.
  • Your prayers answered - God is listening and responding to your prayers. Last month a team returning from Sierra Leone asked their local church whether they could sponsor a homeless child. They responded by sponsoring the child's schooling and donated over £3,000 to buy land so that Mission Direct can build a safe house for homeless children. Praise Jesus!
  • Get us to the church on time! In order to continue to run projects in the UK and overseas we need to increase awareness of Mission Direct's work. Could you arrange for us to come and speak at your church? Get in touch with us and suggest some dates!
