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.

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us... If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. - 1 John 3:16-18 -
Week 14: 1–7 APR



Praise God for the generous Australians who pray and give to help people affected by leprosy. Pray that their numbers and capacity will increase, as will the opportunities for us to express our gratitude will increase.



Give thanks for God’s creative vision, and how it rests on the Merchandise team. Praise God, He has used this to successfully engage shoppers to help those affected by leprosy. Please pray The Lord will keep bringing in new supporters this way.



Praise God for the safe travels programme staff have had overseas. This year five projects funded by The Leprosy Mission Australia supporters will be coming to an end. Thank God for their impact and ask Him for wisdom and continued safety for the Programs team as new projects are implemented.



Please pray more churches and groups will be open to and interested in hearing from a speaker and about how to help people affected by leprosy. Praise God for people’s willingness to connect and bless those who have done so already.


Pray more people will be motivated this year to ‘put on the kettle on ’ for a great cause and host a ‘Cuppa For a Cure’ event to help stop leprosy by 2035.


There are many wonderful supporters of people affected by leprosy who volunteer in the office, their homes, and across Australia to help people affected by leprosy. Pray God’s blessing would be upon them and flow through them to others.

About TLM Australia

The Leprosy Mission Australia has a heart for ‘the battler’ (an Australian colloquialism referring to "ordinary" individuals who persevere through adversity) and the spirit for giving them a “fair go”.  Often what people affected leprosy, disability and other neglected tropical diseases desperately need.

Dedicated to daily prayer and with our faith in Jesus, the team strive to love and serve our partners overseas through servant-hearted relationships with our fellow ‘Aussies’. Through our activities we help raise awareness and facilitate their generosity.  Australian supporters pray and provide financially for projects in six strategic countries: Timor Leste, Nepal, Nigeria, India, Papua New Guinea and Thailand.

This year will see the introduction of the concepts – ‘Shop To Stop Leprosy’ and ‘Safe Water Saves Lives’.  Highlighting a number of key house-branded and exclusive products with proceeds going to support selected projects.  This will be supported with targeted acquisition mailings and an increased online presence, particularly in social media.  The Cuppa For A Cure event program will see a ‘refresh’ to encourage more Aussies to “boil the billy” and stop leprosy transmission by 2035.
