Caring for the needs of people is integral to the missionary tasks of evangelism, discipling new believers, training leaders and forming healthy churches. Healthcare missions gives access to the unreached, allows for intimate conversations, meets needs, makes disciples and empowers the church.

Healthcare Prayer and Celebrations Updated June 2024

Global

Our largest mobilization event every year is MedAdvance. This is our annual gathering of hundreds of healthcare professionals to connect with 40-50 field healthcare workers to share about how the Lord is using healthcare strategies to reach the lost. This year we will be in Houston, Texas at Houston's First Baptist Church from September 12-14. Pray that the healthcare providers that come will have a clear vision of how the Lord wants to use them and that they will find ways to plug into effective church planting strategies that can leverage their skills for the glory of God.

Much of the world is still medically underserved. Add to that low investment in public health programs in many lower and middle income countries and you have a lot of people who are suffering from lack of healthcare. On top of that these are often in places with high levels of lostness. Pray that the Lord will call out a healthcare provider to take a job in an African country that will allow the teams there to specifically address health needs, add health strategies to their church planting strategies allowing them to care for physical and mental health needs even while addressing the greatest need, lostness.

Scroll through social media or turn on a television and you will be bombarded with products and services promising to help you get fit, be healthier, and have a better lifestyle. This is not just in the United States. The desire to be healthier abounds globally and gives us an opportunity to connect with people. Ask the Lord of the harvest to give wisdom and creativity to His workers as they seek to develop health and wellness strategies that help people to get physically fit and also help them to find out how they can fit into the kingdom of God.

Sub-Saharan Africa

In a mega-city in Africa our team is focused on reaching the whole of the city, this includes those living in slums, the refugees there, as well as those victim to the sex industry. As they reach out to women trapped in that life, they meet their physical and emotional health needs, but the need is great and the workers are few. Pray that the Lord of the harvest will call out His chosen healthcare workers with a heart for women’s health to come alongside and assist this ministry in effectively caring for needs and reaching even more women.

Many places around the world have no access to modern medical care despite great strides in healthcare systems. Even in places with strong national healthcare systems there are still patients on the edge, not getting the services they need. One of these needs is prosthetic limbs (and other prosthetics). Pray for workers engaging with local believers reaching out to the community needing prosthetics services. Ask the Lord to give opportunities to share with these patients and the funding to continue to supply this need. Posted March 2024

Pray for the ServeTours taking place this summer. In Armenia, Send Relief is sending almost 50 healthcare volunteers to work with local faith families to provide services and help them gain a voice to share the gospel with the lost. Ask that the Lord of the harvest prepare the way for the teams and prepare the hearts of those that will hear of Jesus because of this project. Posted March 2024

Healthcare providers can often find jobs in local and international institutions in other countries, and this allows them to meet the needs of the people and to be a light for the gospel. Pray that the Lord will call out His people to fill such roles and inspire in them the pioneering spirit and tenacity needed to be a persistent light in a dark place. Posted Dec. 2023

The mental health needs of the forcibly displaced are daunting. Our Father didn’t call us to work that is easy; sometimes it is work that is very difficult. Fortunately, He gives creativity and resources for us to meet needs and proclaim Him in all situations. Pray for teams working with the forcibly displaced around the world as they develop and use trauma-healing tools like story sets, coloring books, and others. Ask the Lord of the harvest to keep our field workers fresh so they can be a blessing to those among whom they minister. Posted Dec. 2023

Wars — there are those that make the news and those that don't. No matter how much we hear about them, armed conflicts take a dramatic toll — destroying healthcare infrastructure, displacing civilians, even displacing physicians, nurses, and other providers. Ask the Lord of the harvest to bring His healthcare workers to places where their efforts can be a blessing to those caught up in armed conflict. Posted Dec. 2023
