Prayer Requests for the Ministry

Prayer is a vital part of our ministry. Worldwide in all our offices we meet daily to pray to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Will you join us in praying for the work of Samaritan’s Purse and our Church Partners worldwide?

“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”

1 John 5:14-15

International Crisis Response

Pray for families in Ukraine as they suffer from the ongoing violence in their country. Ask God to bring physical, emotional, and spiritual healing to their country.

Pray for Samaritan’s Purse staff and church partners who are assisting families in Ukraine with critical services such as medical care and food.

Pray for the Gospel to take root in the hearts of those in Eastern Europe who do not yet know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour.

Pray for the ongoing efforts in Morocco and Libya, and that hurting people will know God’s love for them.

Pray that the volunteers will grow in relationship with one another, that they will be flexible and adapt to new positions, that there will be a spirit of unity across all teams and God would help those going through the Connect process to capture the heart of OCC.

Pray that logistic volunteers will come forward, particularly for the role of Collections coordinator in areas across the regions.

The Greatest Journey 

Please pray that Ministry Partner training sessions are key times to ensure that those actually running OCC outreach events make all the necessary preparations for a successful, child-friendly, fun, gospel-focused event! Please pray for those who will lead these sessions, and for the right people to attend them.

Training for new teachers for The Greatest Journey will be held before shoebox gifts arrive. Please pray for new Teacher Trainers who will lead this training – that they will be engaging and encouraging and make sure new teachers feel ready to invite children to attend The Greatest Journey course and teach each of the 12 lessons effectively!

Please pray for wisdom, strength and joy for each National Leadership Team in each country that is partnering with OCC.

Where new team members are still needed, pray that God calls people forward who are the right people to fill the role available. Pray for a good balance of church representation, and for great team unity in serving all churches as they reach the children of their country with the gospel.
