Prayer is at the foundation of what we do. As a Christian organization, we believe that God guides where our organization should work, gives us wisdom in difficult situations, and strengthens us in times of trouble. We believe that God hears and answers our prayers.

This Month’s Prayer Points

Even in the new year, COVID-19 continues to ravage lives and economies around the world. Pray that God would continue to move in this global crisis, and that His protection would be upon all of us. 

Please continue to pray also for Tearfund, as we work and respond to the families and individuals who are in most need. Pray that people will not lose hope but continue in trusting God and His sovereign will. 

We praise God for the success of the Scaling-Up Conservation Agriculture Program in East Africa, especially in Ethiopia. Thousands of families now have enough to eat year round because of the farming skills they learned. None of this would have been possible without God’s grace and support from generous individuals. 

But continue to pray also for peace in Ethiopia, as the conflict that broke out a few months ago continue to affect many families. Pray for protection to those who have fled the country from the Tigray Region. Pray for comfort to families who lost loved ones in this crisis, and for everyone’s good health as they also face the pandemic in the midst of the chaos.  

DR Congo
The Congo is currently facing a political stand-off with high ranking people in the government. The stand off could trigger instability across the DRC, where more than 5 million people are currently displaced by violence. Pray for peace and justice in the country, and for everyone’s safety and protection. 

Please pray for our partners in Liberia as they continue to find ways to serve the most vulnerable people in the country. Pray for the health of the millions of refugees in Liberia as COVID-19 travels through the camps. Pray for the country’s leaders, that God would give them wisdom in making decisions, and pray for people to donate to their projects so they will be able to implement them. 

India has been one of the countries severely affected by the pandemic. Please pray for the safety of our partners and the people they work with during this time. Also pray for the millions of ‘daily labourers’ in India, that despite the pandemic they would find work and be able to provide for their families. 

Tearfund Canada has been sustained year after year by the prayers and the gifts of faithful people like you. As we look back in 2020, despite the challenges, we see people empowered, families impacted, and lives transformed. This is all possible because of you. In this new year, please join us as we continue to remember in prayer, and serve the people in most need. 

We give thanks to the Lord for all His blessings and provisions to all of us, for the protection and guidance, for healing the sick, especially in this time of pandemic, and for many more. 

We give thanks to the Lord for your life, for all the projects that we’re able to do, and for everything that He has done. Praise be to our God! 


The solution to poverty is more than physical, it’s spiritual. Instead of handouts, you will be partnering with local churches to permanently lift families out of poverty. Will you join us?
