Here are some ways you can pray for our ministry and the people we serve right now.
Prayer Requests from Around the World
This year, the monsoon with its associated flooding has been disastrous for Nepal. In southern Nepal, especially across the districts around Lalgadh Hospital, the situation is heartbreaking. Incessant heavy rain, disastrous widespread flooding, and landslides in the higher areas have caused hundreds of deaths and many thousands of people are now homeless and destitute. Please pray for flood-affected people and communities; that they will be able to recover and rebuild and that the Lord will restore their lives.
World Mental Health Day
October 10 is World Mental Health Day. Stigma associated with leprosy can cause anxiety, depression and isolation among people affected by leprosy. Pray for people suffering in these ways, for the counselors supporting them, and for all those seeking to reduce the stigma that causes this suffering.
International Day of Persons with Disabilities
December 3 is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Pray for the many people who have disabilities due to late diagnosis and treatment of leprosy and related diseases. Pray too for improvements in early leprosy diagnosis around the world, so that people would be treated in time and avoid disability, and for the self-care groups helping people prevent the nerve damage caused by leprosy resulting in disability.
