Heavenly Father, we pray that everything we, your Church, do – overseas and in the UK – would be characterised by love.

May we be good stewards, who use the resources that have been given to us with integrity.

May we never do anything without first looking to you – the alpha and omega of all mission.

Lord, in our weakness, we pray that you would continue to strengthen our faith, so that we see the world through your eyes.

We remember the workers BMS supports and the people we seek to serve. We pray that your Church around the world would thrive – and that people would find Jesus in unexpected places and express his life in prophetic ways.

We cry out for the millions denied access to education and pray for opportunity for all who live on the margins.We ask that you would bless the medical work in places where health care is not easily accessible and enable us to transform even more lives.

For the oppressed, the voiceless, the abused, the trafficked, the dispossessed and the vulnerable, we pray to our God of justice.

Lord, we lift up to you the future leaders we are helping to train in South America, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and we remember those who have had their futures ripped away by disasters, natural and human-made. You are the highest goal of everything we do.

Lord, we ask that you would guide, equip and bless your Church as we seek to bring your abundant life to those who desperately need it.

In Jesus’ holy name we ask these things.
