Pray with us

According to the founder of The Leprosy Mission, Wellesley Bailey, the Mission was
‘born and cradled in prayer’.


Prayer continues to be central to all that we do. The Leprosy Mission International office produces prayer resources that give a global overview as well as the current prayer needs for our work with leprosy-affected people, our staff, and the countries that we work in. Many other TLM offices also produce prayer resources on a quarterly or monthly basis – check our list of Members to see if there’s a TLM office near you.

ASK Prayer Diary is an annual prayer guide providing a global overview of The Leprosy Mission’s work. You can view the ASK Prayer Diary week by week below, download a PDF of the full year, or request a printed booklet. A quarterly prayer guide with updated details, needs and points of praise is also available for download.

TLM Global Fellowship


Pray for Brent Morgan, International Director, as he leads the Global Fellowship in planning for a new five year strategy with the aim of defeating leprosy by 2035, in tune with the ‘Zero Disability’ aim common among global leprosy stakeholders.


The Global Fellowship is based on a covenant relationship with one another and before God. Praise God for the strong inter-country relationships and pray for grace and mercy for one another as we seek to work together in a loving and encouraging way. 


This month, TLM country leaders and chairpersons from around the world are gathering for several days of meetings. Pray for a spirit of unity as decisions are made and that those attending will be invigorated in their passion and commitment to serving people affected by leprosy.


At the global Members’ Meetings this month, we will be presenting the Wellesley Bailey Award. Created in 1999 to celebrate the life and work of Mr Wellesley Bailey, founder of The Leprosy Mission, these awards are a unique and prestigious honour. Each recipient has made extraordinary contributions to society through overcoming the social stigma and physical challenges of leprosy. Give thanks for the awardees and for their remarkable courage and achievements.


The Mission’s work is restricted when we do not have the income to reach out to more leprosy-affected people. Thank God for our wonderful supporters around the world who faithfully and sacrificially give despite unstable financial markets in many countries. Pray that God will grant favour as we seek new donors and institutional funding. 


Governing boards have a vital responsibility throughout the Mission. Pray that local and international board members will understand and embrace the purpose and values of the Global Fellowship and will strive for unity. Pray that the unity felt at global meetings will be passed on locally.

About TLM Global Fellowship

The Leprosy Mission Fellowship consists of TLM organisations or offices in 28 countries that have made mutual commitments to work together as one global fellowship. The Fellowship was formed in 2011, when these Member countries agreed and signed TLM’s Charter. The Charter commits each of us to:

  • Uphold our common purpose and identity
  • Contribute to the shared life of the Mission
  • Strengthen our global unity
  • Be mutually accountable
  • Observe financial stewardship

One of the joys of fellowship is that we work together towards our shared vision of leprosy defeated, lives transformed. The two halves of that vision are equally important. We want to see leprosy defeated, brought to an end. That needs persistence, quality work, and strong connections with partners that have a similar commitment. And we want to see lives transformed through the work we do. Not just the lives of people affected and damaged by leprosy, but also the lives of our staff and supporters. Something changes in all of us when we work together on our God-given mission and seek to demonstrate the truth and love of Jesus Christ in everything we do.
