The powerful prayers of many faithful supporters underpin Habitat’s work every day at home and around the world. Prayer keeps faith at the centre of a call to service and justice.
Our hearts break at the impact of COVID in India. With over 200,000 deaths and rising cases; hospitals overwhelmed and resources stretched; lift India and all its people in prayer; pray comfort for those who mourn, healing for those who are sick and peace for those who are anxious.
Pray for those in communities around the world who are afraid for family. Pray for Health workers and key workers working in the most difficult circumstances. Pray for those in power as they tackle urgent needs, and give thanks for the international response to the crisis, including from Ireland and from the UK.
Pray for Habitat staff and volunteers across the country- pray for safety as they serve. Give thanks for the 12 emergency COVID centres which Habitat already completed to boost existing medical infrastructure and pray more can be delivered in response to the growing need.
Give thanks for Habitat’s other emergency COVID responses including family essentials and hygiene kits which have been a lifeline for more than 600,000 of the most vulnerable and pray for the resources needed to continue that work. Pray for all agencies who are responding to protect families.
