Prayer has been an integral part of Mercy Ships decades-long history. Join with those around the world who uphold the work of Mercy Ships in prayer.
Pray for our patients:
As our Field Service to Guinea wraps up, please continue to pray for all the long-stay patients!
Pray for encouragement, for their families, for their home responsibilities that are not being addressed while they are staying in the hospital or at the HOPE Center.
Pray for continued wisdom and strength for the medical team as they work hard for our patients.
Bala – He now has TB and cannot have his last surgery here as planned. Please pray for his emotional well-being as he goes through this difficult time and for God’s intervention in his healing.
Ibrahim – a tumor patient, is not healing properly, and his jaw is still draining. Please pray for complete healing for him.
Marietou – Please pray for rapid healing and strength for Marietou, a Noma patient, who still has an infection.
Pray for our Crew:
Continue to pray for wisdom for our doctors and nurses as they are on the front lines.
As a busy field service comes to a close, pray for our medical staff as they often work long hours. Pray for alertness and protection against exhaustion!
Pray also that they would feel the Father sustaining and carrying them.
Pray for peace and reconciliation in Guinea:
There have been periodic political protests and demonstrations in Guinea as it continues to work its way to a legislative election that has been postponed a number of times.
The current situation is more serious than usual, with ethnic clashes in the capital city of Conakry.
Please pray for peace for this nation, for the safety of the crew and all those they serve, and that events will not keep any patients from receiving life changing surgeries.
What is Africa’s Greatest Need?
Pray for leadership
Good leadership is the single factor that can most dramatically and rapidly change a nation’s circumstances and create a brighter future. It is encouraging to see some nations in sub-Saharan Africa begin to put in place leaders who are working to bring about much needed change. Guinea held its first free elections in its entire history in 2010. Please pray for President Alpha Condé that God will give him wisdom, strength, and discernment to lead and govern well. Please pray for peace and reconciliation in the political life of Guinea.
