Urgent Need

Please keep each and every one of our patients and their families in Madagascar in your prayers. The journey to healing is often long and painful and we ask God to protect and restore them physically, as well as spiritually and emotionally.

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.

Pray for our patients
