Praise Points

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.

Our amazing screening team saw hundreds of people in Mahajanga, a remote city in north west Madagascar. The days were long and hard, but our small team made sure they saw everyone who came through the gate. We look forward to seeing many of those patients come to the Africa Mercy.

Pray for our patients

All of our club-foot babies are out of their casts and in braces – in order to keep their feet in the correct position, they have to stay in braces until they are five years old. Please pray for perseverance from the family members who will be overseeing this. The bow-legged and older kids with foot deformities are beginning to get out of their casts. Join us as we pray for each patient’s individual rehab process, as they practice muscle strengthening and aim to achieve optimal gait patterns and range of motion. We ask for wisdom as we begin the process of acquiring braces for those will require them longer-term.

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.
