At Baptist World Aid we believe that prayer is an important part of our Christian response to the injustice and oppression that we see in our world. But we also know that sometimes the biggest challenge can be knowing what to pray.
Use the information in this Prayer Calendar to guide your daily prayer time.
Please join with us as we urge God to right injustice and enable people everywhere to live life to the full in Jesus’ name.
Pray for those who have lost income and livelihoods due to coronavirus (COVID-19). Pray mums and dads would find new ways to generate income and provide for their families.
Pray for food provision. Ask that vulnerable families going hungry would receive the food they need to be nourished and healthy. Thank God for using your generosity to provide food rations!
Pray for families who are also facing the threat of natural disasters. Pray for His protection. Ask God to stem natural disasters, which seriously compound threats to health and safety.
Give thanks to God for putting your generosity to work! Praise Him for using your compassionate support to provide life-saving resources for vulnerable families facing this coronavirus pandemic.
Pray for children in our sponsorship projects. Praise God that there have been no reported cases of coronavirus among sponsored children! Ask God for His continued protection.
Pray for children’s education. Ask God to help them continue to learn, even if they cannot be at school. Pray the way would be made clear for many to return to school when safe.
Ask God to protect children who are not safe in their homes. Pray He shields the most vulnerable children, who are at an increased risk of abuse during times of crisis.
Thank God for the relief already provided. With your support, children have received food, hygiene kits and health education to protect them from coronavirus.
Thank God that we can worship Him freely in Australia. Praise Him for this blessing and ask Him to remind us to use our privilege to pray for those who cannot freely express their faith.
Pray churches would answer God’s call to love the vulnerable. Pray that pastors and leaders would lead their congregations in unified prayer and support… to be love and end poverty.
Thank God that we have been able to gather remotely. Pray He helps us to use lessons from this season to strengthen churches, so we’ll be more committed to worshipping the Lord… together.
Ask for wisdom for pastors and leaders. Ask God to help them make informed and wise decisions about what church should look like moving forward, out of the pandemic.
