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 Malagasy Day Crew

More than 300 amazing Malagasy people have served with us this field service as Day Crew in a variety of roles – translators, galley and deck hands just to name a few. We could not have done the work here in Madagascar without their support!

Please join us in praying for them and their families’ future as we wrap up our final weeks of service in Madagascar.

Pray for our patients and crew

Please pray for the quick recovery and continued healing of our patients as surgeries and post-operative care progresses.

Pray for the stamina and energy for our crew during these final weeks of field service in Madagascar – that we would ‘run the race to win’ (I Cor. 9:24) and finish well.

Pray for our Benin Advance Team

Our advanced team leaves for Benin this week to prepare the way for the ship’s arrival in August. They are responsible for setting up communications, interviewing and hiring locals who will work on the ship, securing locations for our off ship medical facilities as well as tackling countless other preparatory tasks that allow the ship to provide life-giving work to patients in Benin.

Would you pray for the team specifically focusing on: unity, health, safety and rest throughout the next 3.5 months?

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.

THANK YOU for joining us in prayer!
