Pray for the global church this Christmas season
Poverty is not God’s plan. But we believe that every church can play a part in ending extreme poverty and injustice. That’s why we want you to join us in praying for the global church – including churches that are seeking to bring transformation to communities in some of the poorest parts of the world.
Your prayers are powerful. Every day in December, we’ll send you a short email with inspiring prayers and videos from around the world, including requests from our global staff and church partners. We believe that joining together in prayer can make a difference to communities across the globe. Please join us.
‘I will build my church’
'And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.' (Matthew 16:18)
Jesus is actively building his church. Nothing can stop that. Tearfund's calling is to partner with God in this work, serving the church as it brings good news to people living in poverty.
We are passionate about whole-life transformation for every person – physical, emotional, spiritual and relational.
We have a vision to see 250,000 churches become catalysts for transformation in their communities over the next few years. That’s ten times more churches than we work with currently.
We know that we cannot achieve this vision in our own strength. We need to call out to God – and we need your prayers, too. When you join us in prayer, we trust that God will move through his church and that millions of people around the world will be impacted.
