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.

India

monday

Advocacy is a major enabler in TLM India’s new country strategy (2019-25). Pray for God’s wisdom for each one in the team as they implement the strategy. Thank God for guiding TLM India all these years and establishing them as an organisation that supports people affected by leprosy in their fight for dignity and equality. Pray that they may get the right partners to continue their work and expand their reach and influence. 

tuesday

Thank you all for standing with us in prayer to end discrimination against people affected by leprosy. TLM India is working with law agencies and government bodies to repeal the discriminatory provisions from 119 laws. Pray for success in all their endeavours.

wednesday

People affected by leprosy are marginalised in many ways and often prefer to be in hiding. TLM India has been equipping them with knowledge and understanding about their rights and the government social protection schemes. However, many are left out from the access framework. Pray for a newly proposed research study to help to understand why people are unable to access various schemes and entitlements and enable TLM to sensitise them about the existing ones. 

thursday

Campaigns are a great way to create awareness among multiple stakeholders through a spectrum of media. TLM India’s campaign, with the help of Sapna, the campaign mascot – the dream of a leprosy-free India – was launched last year by the Government of India. Pray for the Government, other partners, and all TLM India’s teams to take it forward with a renewed enthusiasm and make it a great success.

friday

Thank God for TLM India’s media partners who show interest in the issue of leprosy. Pray for God’s wisdom and guidance in developing more partners and for the success of awareness-raising activities. 

saturday/sunday

TLM India carries out social media campaigns to make people aware of leprosy. Pray for the success of these campaigns and their impact on all audiences.

Advocacy and Communication

The Leprosy Mission Trust India’s Advocacy and Communication Domain supports people affected by leprosy to speak out on the issues important to them, defend and safeguard their rights, and have their voices heard when policymakers make decisions that affect their lives.

TLM India engages with strategic partners at state and national levels to highlight issues that have a negative impact on the daily lives of people affected by leprosy, through strategic communications that target negative attitudes and practices. It promotes the inclusive development of people affected by leprosy and other disabilities by influencing policies and practices involving them. It also uses innovative communications to improve awareness and attitudes towards leprosy and other disabilities.
