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.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will. - Romans 12:2 (NIV) -
Week 13: 25–31 MAR

South Africa


The Leprosy Mission Southern Africa assists countries in the region with very low numbers of leprosy patients. The low numbers mean that health workers find it difficult to recognise leprosy and patients remain undiagnosed for many years. Pray that the team will find effective ways to raise awareness of leprosy.  


Pray that the general disability awareness project, RampUp, which focuses on the exclusion of disabled people from the church, will expand into a wide range of congregations during 2019.


Join us in giving thanks for many generous bequests received during 2018 and pray for the release of funds from the many estates where payments of legacies to The Leprosy Mission remain pending. 


Give thanks for the warm and generous response to TLM Southern Africa’s adverts in a variety of magazines during 2018. Pray that these new friends will support us as generously as earlier generations of supporters.  


Pray for the safety of the field staff – Lucky Kunene (kwaZulu Natal) and Goodman Qhosholo (Eastern Cape) – who travel long distances on dangerous roads to assist patients and teach people about leprosy. 


Give thanks for the many congregations that have so liberally supported The Leprosy Mission over many years. Pray that they will continue to open their doors and hearts during 2019.
