We Need Your Prayers!

As the number of people infected by the Ebola virus increases in Africa, Alliance workers are there—providing preventative education as well as spiritual guidance. But they need your prayers! CAMA worker Stephen Albright, who serves at Hope Clinic in Guinea, submitted the following prayer guide (compiled by Women of Hope International) to assist in specific intercession for this humanitarian crisis. “The Ebola situation is continuously on our hearts and minds,” says Stephen. “Please join us in praying for a stop to this virus.”

  • Saturday, October 11: Pray for safety for relief workers who are trying to help others and that they won’t be targets of violence and theft.
  • Sunday, October 12: Pray for wisdom, discernment, and integrity for the leaders of the affected nations as they make decisions that will impact millions of lives.
  • Monday, October 13 : Pray for the international community to respond not with fear but with compassion, urgency, and perseverance, assisting those in need.
  • Tuesday, October 14: Pray for the safety and wisdom for community health educators who are working to dispel the lies surrounding Ebola.
  • Wednesday, October 15: Pray for provision and care for women and children who now are widows and orphans because of Ebola. Often, they are ostracized and rejected by remaining family members.

  • Wednesday, October 22: Pray for the power of fear to be broken globally and for people around the world to respond properly to people from these affected areas and to victims of the virus.
  • Thursday, October 23: Pray for protection and emotional support for the teams who collect bodies and bury them. Pray they will have increased sensitivity to the needs and concerns of family members when responding to a call.
  • Friday, October 24: Pray that communities will willingly assist in reintegration of people who have recovered from the virus, welcoming them with open arms.
  • Saturday, October 25: Pray for God’s peace and comfort for the families of foreign humanitarian aid workers and medical professionals while their loved ones serve in high-risk areas.
