Join Our Prayer Team
At Medical Teams International, we work in difficult places, where people are suffering and danger is real. As a non-denominational Christian organization
, we value prayer as a way to acknowledge our need for God’s blessing on all of our efforts.
We pray for those we serve, for our volunteer teams, and for partners working in the field. We invite you to share with us your prayer requests.
Current Prayer Requests
Ebola in West Africa
Bloomberg News reports that "Africa’s biggest Ebola outbreak in seven years has probably spread from Guinea to neighboring Liberia and also threatens Sierra Leone. Five people are suspected to have died from the disease in Lofa county in northern Liberia, Bernice Dahn, Liberia’s chief medical officer, said at a briefing yesterday. At least 86 cases and 59 deaths have been recorded across Guinea, the west African country’s health ministry said. The capital, Conakry, hasn’t been affected, government spokesman Albert Damantang Camara said."
“The forest region where Unicef delivered the emergency assistance on Saturday is located along the border with Sierra Leone and Liberia with many people doing business and moving between the three countries,” said Laurent Duvillier, a Unicef spokesman, in an e-mail yesterday. “Risk of international spread should be taken seriously.”
Please be praying for those impacted in Guinea by this terrible virus and that its spread will be contained. Pray for protection of MTI staff as they continue their work in Liberia. MTI’s work is in other parts of the country.
Oso, WA Mudslide
Please send prayers for those impacted by the devastating mudslide in Oso, WA this past weekend.
Please pray for a negotiated settlement to avoid an outbreak of war. A military response would be cataclysmic not only for the two countries but also for regional neighbors including Moldova
, one of our program countries, and the world.

Please pray for our teams traveling this week:
A medical team is departing for N'Zao, Guinea to provide clinical services at Guinea's Hope Medical Center.
An EMS training team is departing for Prey Veng, Cambodia to teach EMS to doctors, nurses and midwifes in Prey Veng Province.
Please pray for each team's safety and health and for God's love to reach out through their acts of service and compassion.

Please pray for safety of refugees who are uprooting their families and leaving their lives behind. Pray for an end to the conflict. Pray that they will face each day without fear.
