We are in a climate emergency. More people are going hungry, extreme weather events are more severe and communities are being displaced. People are being pushed back into poverty and the damage to creation is accelerating.
As we contemplate the scale of the crisis, it’s important we keep our eyes fixed on the God of justice, who loves creation and brings restoration and peace – and help our friends and family to do the same. Will you join us in praying about poverty and climate change?
Our SMS alerts will let you know when we have updated the prayer prompt here to inspire prayers for justice and restoration for those living in poverty.

Please join us in prayer this week for those suffering from flooding in Brazil.
This weekend several cities in Pernambuco, including Recife, have suffered from floods and landslides as a result of heavy rains, leaving more than 3,500 homeless and over 80 people dead.Pastor Jose Marcos’ runs a Baptist church and Tearfund partner Instituto Solidaire in Coqueiral, Recife. They have themselves been flooded but continue to offer emergency shelter and assistance to the community. While they are no strangers to flooding in the area, and Instituto Solidaire have run disaster response work to mitigate its impact, the situation is ever more grave as the rains are getting heavier and increasingly unpredictable due to climate change. Waste in the local river has also contributed in the past to increased flooding around the church
So many people have been impacted and lives lost. Pray for comfort, shelter and support for all who have been affected, and courage who now have to rebuild their homes. Amen.
