Prayer Team

The rather mysteriously named Prayer Team is made up of a number of writers working closely with country and development experts in the UK and overseas. Prayer is the lifeblood of everything we do. We depend on it, because we can't hope to bring healing to a suffering world without God's help. To pray with us regularly, you can sign up to our weekly prayer email as well as our WhatsApp prayer alerts.
