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.

Klaus Leonhardt visiting a self-help group in North-West Bangladesh
But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream! - Amos 5:24 NIV -
Week 50: 11-17 December



Give thanks for the more than 500 self-help groups that have come to life in North-West Bangladesh through the programme TLM Denmark supports there. Pray for the groups as the project goes into its final phase that they will mature and become self-running within the next three years.


Earlier this year Klaus Leonhardt, the National Director for TLM Denmark for the past 10 years, resigned, and the board chose to take a much more active role. Pray that they will be blessed to fulfil their role and equipped with the skills and energy to do so. Give thanks for Klaus's fundraising expertise and passion for reaching out to people affected by leprosy.


The Danish Government has reduced development aid by 35% in 2016 – pray that TLM Denmark will find other sources of income or that the Government will change its policy.


The Leprosy Mission in Denmark has developed educational material that can be used online from their webpage. Pray that it will be used by many people in Denmark making them aware what a difference the work in Bangladesh makes and making them aware how important it is to have focus on the rights of people with disability.


Give thanks for TLM Denmark’s loyal supporters – more than 50% have been with TLM for more than 20 years of praying and giving!


Pray for good communication and positive relationships between TLM Denmark and TLM Bangladesh as they strive together to find funds for the work.
