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.

The HOPE Center (Hospital Out Patient Extension) is opening it’s 150 bed facility to our patients on December 29. The HOPE Center is a great blessing to patients and their caregivers in providing a place of refuge and recuperation following surgery. It also increases the capacity to care for as many patients as possible given limited ward and bed space on the Africa Mercy.

Please join us in prayer for the HOPE Center, her patients, and operators that peace may dwell in this place, continually providing restoration to the body and spirit.

Pray for our patients

After many renovations our Dental Clinic in Toamasina, Madagascar will open. Join us in praying for the opening of this center that will bring hope and healing to so many through free dental care.

May the patients be able to come from far and wide and may the dental team be filled with strength and energy to help as many people as possible!

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.
