A prayer for Yemen

Every day between 5,000-7,000 thousand people are falling ill from cholera in Yemen.

In the last three months nearly 400,000 cases have been reported and over 1,800 people have died.

Some humanitarian groups are estimating this could be the largest cholera crisis on record.

Tearfund partners are distributing cholera kits, water filters, medicines to treat the disease, promoting hygiene, and providing clean water.

Join us in a prayer for Yemen:

Father God,

Our hearts cry out for the people of Yemen.
Please comfort all those who are suffering,
strengthen those who are mourning
and let your peace and provision reign.

We pray for a total end to the cholera outbreak.
We ask that the aid effort won’t be impeded in any way
and that supplies will reach people where they’re needed most.
Please give wisdom and safety to those doing this work.

Make the nations turn their attention to Yemen,
so that they respond immediately and generously –
don’t let this be another headline that goes unheeded.
Lord of all, we lift up the people of Yemen to you.

In Jesus’ name,
Amen.

Give to Yemen
