Urgent Need

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.

Please join us in praising our heavenly Father for bringing the Malagasy people to our first screening center in Toamasina!  Lord we pray that you continue to bring your people to the screening center and bless this opportunity for Mercy Ships to serve as a light and example of your love, mercy and service. Father, no one loves these people more than you, we pray that you bless every person that comes to see us. Provide heavenly wisdom and discernment to guide our nurses and professionals during the selection, let them be intercessors for your righteous will! We also ask that your Holy Spirit fill those who we are not be able to provide surgery and supply them with your grace and peace, speak through our hospital chaplaincy as they pray over them. And lastly, please preserve our energy and patience as we go about long and emotionally demanding days. Thank you Abba Father, you are so good!

Pray for our patients

The operating room is open for service this week! Orthopedic surgeries begun under the gifted hands of volunteer surgeons. Heavenly Father, we ask that you bless the surgeons during this field service and allow their hearts, minds and hands to work in unison as they bring physical healing to our patients. Please sustain the operating team physically and emotionally as they work long hours. And we ask that your gentle and healing touch be upon our patients so that they may experience minimal discomfort during their recovery.
