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

  • Zimbabwe: Please pray for the current economic crisis in Zimbabwe. On the 25th of June Zimbabwe's President Emmerson Mnangagwa defended a move to ban the use of international currencies such as the US dollar, South African rand and British pound. Monday's announcement caught locals by surprise. Zimbabwe has not had its own fully fledged currency since 2009, when the authorities abolished the Zimbabwe dollar because of hyperinflation. Shops and most businesses will only be allowed to accept the substitute currency, RTGS dollars. Mr Mnangagwa said in a statement that 'the change was necessary for the country to have control of its currency'.

    If this situation is not resolved, our summer team will be greatly impacted, as there is a severe lack of fuel.

  • Uganda: Thank God that the isolated case of Ebola has not speak to other parts of the country and is not a risk to our teams going out. Please pray protection over staff, volunteers and partners as the summer and autumn campaigns commence.

  • Rukungiri: After building three new nursery classrooms in the village of Rushararazi last year, teams this year will be focusing on building new accommodation for teachers as current housing is unfit for purpose and is deterring high quality educators from teaching at the school.

    Please pray for God's provision - that the funds come in so that we can build teachers houses, as if we don’t receive the funds, current (and new) teachers will have to continue living in shacks.

  • Kenya – Pray over the start of our campaign in Kenya - for both Narok and Nairobi. Please keep the children at Emmaus school in Nairobi in your prayers, that those that have the grades for high school will secure sponsors.

  • HR: Pray for our staff teams, as some are having health challenges which may affect their ability to serve overseas this year. Please pray for their healing, and for their families at this time.

    Ask for God's will to prevail and to be made clear to them and to the Mission Direct office staff.

  • Moldova: This summer sees two youth teams going out on mission to Moldova to serve God's Kingdom. Please cover them in prayer as they travel - as well as their youth leaders - that this may be a time of unity, liberation and faith-building as well as heart-changing impact for them as well as those they meet and serve. Pray also that they will make great progress with the building of the camp accommodation which will enable families with disabled children, or those with special needs, to be together and have quality time.

  • Pray for our new Regional Manager – who starts with us later this month. Pray for protection and insight as he travels to Moldova this month on his first Mission Direct trip.
