Here are some ways you can pray for our ministry and the people we serve right now.

Prayer Requests from Around the World


In the wake of two devastating earthquakes, our partners have been providing emergency relief, humanitarian aid and early recovery to communities devastated by the earthquakes. The poorest and most marginalized people — those with leprosy and of low caste — have been the most affected by this tragedy. During the days, weeks and months ahead, we will continue to help them recover and rebuild.

Please pray for:

  • those who have lost loved ones
  • people in the affected regions who don’t feel safe in their own homes
  • wisdom for our partners as they decide how best to utilize personnel and resources, in order to meet current and future needs resulting from the earthquake
  • continued safety and strength for our staff and partners

Cote d’Ivoire

Pray for the ongoing training of community health workers and nurses. Pray that they would have a servant’s heart for the work of caring for those affected by leprosy and Buruli ulcer. The staff and their families also need prayer for safety and protection. Read about our work fighting leprosy and Buruli ulcer in Cote d’Ivoire.

Democratic Republic of the Congo

Pray for peace and an end to the civil war in the eastern part of the country. Pray that leprosy-affected people who are hiding in the forest would show up in order to be detected and start their treatment in the earliest stage of their disease. People disabled by leprosy have a particularly difficult time. They are often abandoned by their families and communities and are unable to fetch water and find food.  Pray that we would be able to continue to provide them with comfort and help. American Leprosy Missions has worked in the DR Congo since 1931. Discover more about our ministry in the world’s least developed country.
