Pray for local health workers

Prayer has been an integral part of Mercy Ships’ decades-long history. Join those around the world who uphold the work of Mercy Ships in prayer.

Beyond the surgeries we perform, we are also investing in a group of incredible Malagasy health care workers. Please pray for these local heroes, that they would take from our education programs the skills, knowledge, attitude of compassion and professional work ethic that will promote lasting change long after we leave.

Pray for our patients

It is a time for new beginnings, which luckily is a specialty of ours on the ship!  While remembering what Jesus has done for us, take a moment to praise him for all the patients who have found healing whilst here.

Pray for our volunteers

We give thanks to God for the medical crew who give every day through their talents to bring hope and healing to the people of Africa.

And we pray for local medical professionals who will continue to care for patients long after our ships have sailed.

Pray for Africa’s leaders

Good leadership is the single factor that can most dramatically and rapidly change a nation’s circumstances and create a brighter future.

Please pray for those countries in sub-Saharan Africa, which are beginning to put in place leaders who will work to bring about much-needed change.
