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.
