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.

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.
Week 8: 20-26 February

England and Wales


Give thanks for TLM England and Wales’s newly appointed trustees. Pray that they will quickly grasp the cause of TLM and serve with passion to see leprosy defeated and lives transformed.


Give thanks for the programmes team’s high level of knowledge, experience and expertise. Pray it will never lack wisdom, insight and sensitivity when working with implementing country teams and project beneficiaries. Pray the team can effectively support and empower those with leprosy and disability.


Please pray that the fundraising team in England and Wales will continue to be gifted with passion and determination to express the needs of leprosy-affected people to trusts, churches, and individual supporters. Pray that supporters will recognise the impact of their giving in the lives of men, women, children and whole families.


Give thanks for the supporter care team, which is essential in supporting TLM England and Wales’s fundraising campaigns. Pray that it continues to know God’s guidance and inspiration to meet daily challenges and priorities and that supporters will feel valued and encouraged through their interactions with the team.


Give thanks for the skills and dedication of the data analysis team, Pragna and Frank, and pray for Pragna as she leads the review and implementation of a new Customer Relationship Management system. Pray for clear thinking and that the steering committee will make wise decisions for the future of TLM and ultimately people affected by leprosy.


Pray for good ongoing relationships with institutional donors and that projects supported by these partners will be effective and timely. Pray for applications made this year for future funding, that they will be looked on favourably and will go on to bless many thousands of lives.

About TLM England and Wales

TLM England and Wales’s role is primarily fundraising, generating prayer support and working with field partners to ensure TLM programmes are effectively carried out. This includes providing support for project development; monitoring projects; and building capacity. TLM England and Wales is also involved in national and international advocacy activities which encourage community empowerment, combat stigma and challenge anti-leprosy legislation. The team is passionate about educating people to see leprosy for what it is; a mildly infectious and treatable disease as opposed to a label for life. A partnership approach is key to the work of TLM England and Wales, which partners with 25 organisations as well as with each of the individuals it serves across Asia and Africa by working to promote dignity and inclusion.
