Here are some ways you can pray for our ministry and the people we serve right now.
Prayer Requests from Around the World: Summer 2013
Pray for successful cooperation between our anti-leprosy partner organizations, the World Health Organization and the Liberian Ministry of Health as we collectively carry out a national Buruli ulcer and leprosy survey.
In the wake of the horrific garment factory collapse, continue to pray for the grieving families and the injured workers. Pray for an improvement in the welfare of the vulnerable and poor who need safe employment opportunities. People affected by leprosy and similar disabilities are pushed to the fringes of society and end up in extreme poverty with few opportunities. American Leprosy Missions supports two projects in Bangladesh and have a staff member, Robert Bowers, stationed there.
Pray for the spiritual needs of the staff and people affected by leprosy at Lalgadh hospital. Patients have the opportunity to hear the Good News of the Gospel during their hospital stay and some are receptive. Please pray that their hearts would be open to the Lord and be saved.
There are more than 40 small churches in the region surrounding the hospital. Please pray that the spiritual needs of the leprosy-affected people would be fulfilled by the local churches.
Thirty percent of the hospital staff are Christians. Pray for strong Christian witness through their lives, at work and in the community.
American Leprosy Missions
The International Leprosy Congress is taking place in Brussels from September 16-20. Several American Leprosy Missions staff will be attending. Pray that this will be a great opportunity to collaborate and renew our collective efforts to combat leprosy.
During the next few months, staff will be doing a lot of international and domestic traveling — everywhere from Thailand and Cote d’Ivoire to India and Nepal. Please pray for safety.
