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

  • Please pray for all 2019 campaigns - that God would prompt volunteers to join a team and God's will would be done with the projects in all the countries we are working in.

  • Brazil: Please pray for the current team out in Rio de Janeiro who are doing a wonderful job in helping to renovate a building into a fit-for-purpose classroom and skills workshop with CADI in the heart of the favelas.

    Please pray for their ongoing protection whilst they work and serve, as well as their wisdom. Thank Jesus for the unity of the team and for the experiences they are having. Pray that the effects of this time stays with them and impacts their home communities once they return.

  • Cambodia: This week, we also announced a new location in Cambodia, expanding our work there. From the New Year, volunteers will be able to serve in a small community of 300 people 10km from the Thai border - near the town of Sisophon.

    This is one of the most impoverished regions of the country and this village is no exception, where the community's water supply is a stream used by cattle and no electricity supply. There is a makeshift school here, where children are prevented from learning during the monsoon rains. Teams will be building a safe, secure brick school here with Serve Cambodia as well as facilitating a water supply.

  • Dominican Republic: Pray for our volunteers this summer; especially for the remaining £5,000 needed to build the classroom in Severet. Prayers of thanksgiving for the supporter that Go MAD has found in the DR who will fund the build of one of the classrooms.

    Thanks also for the recent Turley team who raised over and above their £15,000 target. The extra funds will hopefully be enough to provide a kitchenette/dining area at Mozovi School, where the team built 2 classrooms to enable children to have a full-day of education instead of the half-day shifts they were having previously due to a lack of space.

  • The Gambia: We're excited to announce this as a new location for Mission Direct with the first team planned to go this autumn. However, our country staff are very familiar to MD volunteers, having been country staff for us in many countries a few years ago.

    Please pray for Linda and Daniel Lauermann as they settle in to life in The Gambia, as well as for our first team going out in the Autumn. Pray for the success of the campaign and partnership; that God's favour would pour out and that we would serve His will and His way here.

  • Kenya: Sister Clemencia is our partner in Narok, running Nkapilili School where she works to integrate disabled children into mainstream schooling. This year we will be completing the dormitories to enable disabled children to stay onsite at the school, giving them access to education as many of them would not be able to journey in every day.

    Pray for rain, as sister Clemencia is dependent on the rains coming in order for the school to have enough water.

  • Zambia: Please pray for God to stir hearts for the right person to join Geoff on the staff team this year. Also pray for our funding; that volunteers will find creative ways to raise money to build classrooms at Good Shepherd School.

  • Zimbabwe: Please pray for our partners: Tafri, Today for Tomorrow and Windows of Hope. There is a desperate situation in Zimbabwe around access to food and money. Pray for those going to bed tonight without eating enough for today. Pray for our partners that funds will come in for them to continue their vital support in the communities.

  • Staff team: Pray for the Holy Spirit to grant wisdom for the staff team this year. Please that they too will be enriched by what takes place during the campaign. Also pray for their health and for their family while they are away.

  • We are also investigating a new project in Gambia, so prayer for wisdom and guidance here would be appreciated.
