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.


A divine encounter

The growth in Juliette’s mouth really frightened her. The grandmother shared, “For five years it grew and grew. It just got bigger and bigger.”

Then one amazing day, a friend of Juliette had a divine encounter – he heard some of the nurses from the Mercy Ships advance team in a café talking about the free surgeries that would be provided in Madagascar. Juliette was on their doorstep at the crack of dawn the next day, and received the first appointment card issued in 2014.

Pray for our patients

It began with a surgery to release a contracture but two months later some of our plastic reconstructive surgery patients are still in the middle of their healing.

They’ve endured countless bandage changes, hours of physical therapy and overcome infections. Will you join us in praying for the final steps of their journey towards full healing?

Pray for our nurses

“Nurses dispense comfort, compassion and caring without even a prescription.” – Val Saintsburg

Will you lift our nurses up in prayer as they continue to provide the highest standard of care for our patients?

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!
