Your prayers can make a difference for those infected and affected by HIV and AIDS. By praying, you can extend compassion and comfort to the suffering, and strength to those serving.

Please pray for:

People living with HIV and AIDS

  • That they will know the almighty God who is full of compassion, and who gives true comfort.
  • That they will experience good health and protection from opportunistic diseases
  • That they will live wisely.

Care givers

  • That they will have compassion for those to whom they are giving care.
  • That their surrounding community will show them compassion and not rejection.
  • That they will be able to give the necessary care without being overwhelmed by this massive task

Orphans and vulnerable children

  • For those orphans who are grieving the loss of one or both parents, to know the comfort of the Holy Spirit.
  • That they will experience compassion from the extended family as well as the local community.
  • For safety, security, and protection from abuse and exploitation.

Prevention and education

  • That church leaders and parents will be good role models for the youth.
  • For Christian youth to be able to show positive peer pressure to friends.
  • That more people living with HIV and AIDS who are Christians will become bold and courageous to initiate HIV/AIDS education programmes in churches and communities.

Strategic leadership

  • For wisdom for those in leadership as they plan, develop and strengthen networks and partnerships to maximize effectiveness for God’s kingdom.
