  • Pray for Emergency Relief

    Last update: Jun 2021

    The COVID-19 pandemic continues to ravage the world, posing a greater threat to many developing countries and refugee communities. Facing food and water crises, poor living conditions, shortages of medical equipment and protective gears, poor communities are simply unable to resist the spread of the virus. Coupled with unemployment caused by the economic recession, vulnerable families and children suffer extreme poverty, livelihood pressure and potential violence. In recent days, the situation in India has been severe, overwhelming the local medical system and claiming many lives due to the lack of medical treatment. The situation is heart-breaking.

    Please pray for the vulnerable children and families affected by COVID-19:

    • We proclaim in the name of the Saviour Jesus Christ that God’s goodness and light will be released in darkness and sorrow and lead the world.
    • We pray for full recovery for over a billion people around the world that are currently infected with the virus and for comfort and peace for the many people who have lost their loved ones. May God work miracles in families who are desperate because of helplessness in the lack of medical treatment.
    • We pray for protection over medical personnel and other agencies on the frontline from contracting the virus.
    • We pray for wisdom for leaders and decision makers in various countries to help affected children and families survive the crisis and bring hope to them despite the multiple threats caused by the pandemic and economic recession.
    • May God lead the work of World Vision and other agencies, bring in the necessary resources, and protect children and families.

    It has been ten years since Syria’s civil war broke out in March 2011. Half of the country’s population is displaced, nearly 600,000 have been killed, including 55,000 children. 4.8 million Syrian children have been born straight into the thick of conflict, losing access to education, healthcare and livelihoods, as well as suffering psychosocial effects and even becoming victims of child marriage. While children have lost their dignity, identity and the hope for future, the cruel war that has brought about so many tragedies is yet to end.

    Please remember Syria’s children and families in your prayers.

    • May God grant peace and cease the war in Syria, so that civilians may no longer suffer in fear and desperation.

    • Pray for the children affected by this traumatic experience, may God’s love and mercy comfort their vulnerable souls, heal the wounds, lead them out of death, poverty and sorrow, and restore their hope for future and life.

    • May God protect and strengthen all humanitarian workers, lead the work of World Vision and other agencies. May God bring in the necessary resources to the vulnerable children and families.

    • May God stir the hearts of world leaders, so that they will protect the affected children and families and bring peace to Syria with continued actions.

    • May God move more brothers and sisters to show concern for the plight of the refugee children and families, so that they would not be forgotten.

    Since the conflict broke out in Rakhine State, Myanmar in August 2017, over 860,000 Rohingyas - more than half of whom are children - are stuck in the world’s largest and most densely populated refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. They are stateless and unprotected by international refugee law, enduring poverty, human trafficking, malnutrition and natural disasters. Due the COVID-19 pandemic, they now have even less protection as humanitarian activity in the camp has become limited. Worse still, a massive fire broke out in the camp in March 2021, which saw several hundred people killed, injured or gone missing, with tens of thousands of survivors once again losing their shelters and all their belongings. Many Rohingya refugees have tried different ways to enter neighbouring countries and seek asylum, but were either rejected or repatriated to Myanmar, leaving their lives at risk.

    Please pray for the Rohingya refugees:

    • Refugee families and children have no citizenship, rights and protection, struggling to survive every day. May God stretch His mighty hands to deliver them out of danger and lead them to a place with peace.

    • Refugees are facing the stress of a traumatic past, instability, resettlement and an uncertain future, may God send His servants to help and comfort them, and bless them with strength and hope.

    • Pray for strength and wisdom for World Vision staff  as they carry out work near the Myanmar-Bangladesh border.

    • The situation in neighbouring countries has become tense. May God put an end to all conflicts and rebuild communities with His grace and peace.

    • Pray that more Christians will remember the plight of the refugees with mercy and in their prayers, so that refugees’ cries may be heard.

    Over 1 billion children experience violence every year globally.
