Prayer Requests from Around the World

Child collecting earthquake relief

This 8-year-old girl has come with her mother to collect earthquake relief. She has a 3-hour walk uphill to get home. Most relief work has stopped due to the strikes.


Nepal is suffering from a double disaster of earthquakes and widespread strikes. The large earthquakes of April and May have been followed by 421 aftershocks with magnitude above 4.0. Millions remain without adequate shelter as the freezing Himalayan winter sets in.

This tragedy has been followed by four months of strikes, political unrest and blocked borders, leading to severe shortages in food, medicine, vaccines, diesel fuel, cooking gas and essential commodities.

The poor and marginalized — those with leprosy — often suffer the most during difficult times like these. Pray for the people of Nepal, especially those affected by leprosy, and an end to the strikes and opening of the border.  May our staff and partners at Lalgadh Leprosy Services Center continue to be a beacons of care, love, cure and Christian compassion.

See how your partnership transforms lives in Nepal.


We give praise and thanks for our staff member, Dr. Tin Shwe, who has worked with people affected by leprosy for 50 years.  Since 2000, he has faithfully served the Lord as American Leprosy Missions’ country representative in Myanmar.

The election in November 2015 was a success story for Myanmar. As Myanmar prepares to transfer power from the military-backed ruling party to National League for Democracy, who won by a landslide in the election, pray for a smooth transition and the formation of a genuine government to open a new chapter for the country.
