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.


Pray for Benin

Pray for our dental patients lining up for free dental services. Pray that our volunteers would be energized and refreshed as they treat the many patients who line up each day, and that each patient will remember and put into practice the teachings they receive about good dental hygiene.

Pray for our Medical Capacity Building teams as they prepare and deliver various training courses to the people of Benin. Pray that educators, translators and learners are attuned to each other and that the impact of this knowledge-transfer within the nation will be long-lasting and beneficial.

Pray for our crew

Please pray for our crew as we get ready to help the people of Benin.

Mercy Ships is committed to the delivery of safe surgical care and, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, will work with various hospitals to provide medical training in essential surgical skills, primary trauma care, sterile processing, obstetric and pediatric anesthesia, and several other areas.

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!
