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.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. - Romans 5:1-2 -

Pray for staff and board members involved in a major project to revitalise and reimagine the fundraising message in Scotland. Pray for wisdom and clarity to distill the key stories and ideas which will inspire many more people in Scotland to give donations which will bring healing and hope to many more people affected by leprosy in our partner countries.


Give thanks for volunteer Board members; speakers; church representatives; community fundraisers and office admin helpers in Scotland. Pray that God will bless them for all that they do. Pray too for new volunteers to step forward in key areas, so that TLM Scotland can grow its reach and ability to raise support from across the country – pray especially for new Board members with the right skills and experience to fill important gaps.


Give thanks for the many donors who give generously to help people affected by leprosy through the various projects that TLM Scotland support. Pray that God will bless them for their love for people in need because of leprosy. Pray that the team will be able to reach more people, to find new donors and to inspire all supporters to give so that they can meet their ambitious targets for increasing project support this year and into the future.


Give thanks for those churches which choose to support people affected by leprosy, and TLM, with their gifts and prayers. Pray for opportunities to engage with more churches to share details of what God is doing through TLM and that they will make helping people affected by leprosy part of their mission, just as Jesus did.


Pray for team members travelling this year to visit some of the projects helped by Scottish supporters. Pray for safety while travelling and that they will be inspired and challenged by what they see and the people they meet. Pray too that they will be a blessing and encouragement to people at each of the projects they meet, strengthening the relationships we have and the joint commitment to defeat leprosy together.


Pray that more people from across Scotland will join you in praying regularly for people affected by leprosy, and the work of The Leprosy Mission, using the ASK diary, TLM Scotland’s monthly prayer emails and prayer app.


Based in Stirling The Leprosy Mission Scotland works to raise awareness of leprosy and its effects and to act as a vehicle through which people, churches, schools, community groups and others from across Scotland can find their role in defeating leprosy and transforming lives.

A small staff group, supported by larger team of volunteers,

  • raises funds through a wide variety national and local activities from direct mail appeals and digital campaigns to coffee mornings and sponsored events
  • encourages and enables relevant and timely prayer
  • visits churches and groups to directly appeal for support

TLM Scotland is asking people to stand in the G.A.P. to uphold people affected by leprosy by Giving, Acting or Praying to support the work of God through TLM.

In the summer of 2019 TLM Scotland plan to launch a major new fundraising campaign with a compelling idea of the difference that gifts will make for people affected by leprosy and to help bring about Zero Leprosy.
