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.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself. – Luke 10:27

Lord, in this time of uncertainty, we pray for your wisdom and peace. We pray for those who are sick, that they would be healed.
