Tearfund Latest Prayer Points


Dear Friend,

This week, our prayer requests from around the world include prayers for people facing the devastating hunger crisis in Ethiopia, as well as for those who have experienced terrifying violence in India which has caused them to flee their homes.

As we consider these situations and many others that meet us in the news and even in our own local contexts, there is so much to pray for! And where these situations are complex and it’s not always clear where to start, a solid foundation in how to pray is the way that Jesus taught us.

This week, we’re starting our prayers, very simply, with that. Join us in praying the Lord’s Prayer together and asking that God’s kingdom will come and that his will would be done in all of these places and situations that we are bringing before him in our hearts and minds.

We’ve also included a link for you here to a version in Swahili prepared by some of our staff in the East and Central Africa region. It has an English translation so you can pray along too.

Pray with us

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
For yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
