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.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains — where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. - Psalm 121:1-2 (NIV) -
Week 8: 18-24 Feb



A group from Switzerland will be visiting projects of TLM India in March. This tour has aroused great interest in Switzerland and we are thankful that it is fully booked. Pray for safe travels and inspiring encounters with people affected by leprosy. Pray that the 15 participants after returning will become ambassadors for the Mission and its work. 


TLM Switzerland are happy to have employed Annatina Jonah in their office in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. Annatina will assist her mother Anne-Claude in running the office and getting engaged with donors. Give thanks for Annatina and pray for her and all the team in their work.


TLM Switzerland are hoping for increased income from institutional funders. Pray their proposals for funding will be successful. Give thanks for the large amount received from the Lottery Fund for projects in Bangladesh.


TLM Switzerland are planning a new campaign called ZeroLepra, which aims to gain more resources to help in defeating leprosy and transforming lives. Pray this campaign would catch people’s attention and motivate them to join in this vision.


Pray that God will continue to inspire the team to find innovative and effective ways to reach new supporters, and also to build donor loyalty. Pray that donors would feel the importance and impact of their role in TLM’s work.


Give thanks for Ruedi Josuran, TV presenter in Switzerland and Goodwill Ambassador for TLM Switzerland. He continues to promote the work of the Mission.

About TLM Switzerland

Swiss support for people affected by leprosy was started by a young teacher who discovered The Leprosy Mission in London. Back in Switzerland, she decided not only to continue her support through prayer and donations but to talk to people around her, distributing newsletters and encouraging others to join her endeavour. The circle of supporters grew and in 1905, TLM Switzerland was founded. 

Today, a small team operates from two offices, one in the French- and one in the German-speaking part of the country. A dedicated board, partnering churches and institutions as well as many loyal donors are committed to helping people affected by leprosy. 
TLM Switzerland works in partnership with other Members of the Global Fellowship and with people affected by leprosy to implement projects in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, DR Congo and Niger. 

Within the country, TLM Switzerland raises awareness about leprosy and themes related to it, such as poverty, exclusion and development. It offers people in Switzerland the opportunity to be involved in praying for and supporting people affected by leprosy or disabilities, and their families.
