Pray for people affected by leprosy in Africa

Join with us in praying for families like Habsou, Mariama and Saoude who are living with the stigma and discrimination associated with leprosy.

  • Pray for people affected by leprosy in Niger who are often ostracised from their families (and even their children) once diagnosed with leprosy.  Any outward signs of leprosy can cause fear and a spouse to reject husband/wife, forcing them to leave children, and devastating lives. Give thanks that The Leprosy Mission is helping people affected by leprosy to piece their shattered lives back together through surgery, training and education and pray that more will come forward for help.
  • Please pray for families like Saoude’s who are torn apart by misconceptions and lack of knowledge.  Pray that the message that leprosy is curable will spread far and wide to all those who need to hear it and that early diagnosis will become the norm.  Pray that God will take away all fear from those who hear the word ‘leprosy’.
  • Give thanks for the opportunities that The Leprosy Mission can give to people affected by leprosy.  Opportunities for medical care, school education and training for employment.  Give thanks that these opportunities are life-changing, like the adult literacy classes Mariama attended, which has enabled her to read and write and gives her a better chance of employment so she can help support her family.  Pray that more people will be encouraged to come forward early for diagnosis and treatment, knowing that they can also benefit from the same care, education and training.
  • Pray for Danja Leprosy Referral Hospital in Niger which faces financial, staffing and resources challenges.  Ask God to meet these needs to ensure the smooth running of the centre and the best possible service for people affected by leprosy.
