Pray with us

We send a monthly enews which explores the impact our partners are making in thousands of vulnerable communities in 24 countries around the world, as well as specific prayer points to partner with Tearfund through karakia (prayer). You can sign up to receive these emails and have all the prayer fuel you need to support the ministry of Tearfund and our partners overseas.

Join the enews email         

Prayer is fundamental to everything we do. We depend on it. We can't hope to bring hope and healing to a suffering world without God's help. Please join us, and thousands of churches across the world, in prayer today.

Pray diligently. Stay alert, with your eyes wide open in gratitude. Don’t forget to pray for us, that God will open doors for telling the mystery of Christ, even while I’m locked up in this jail. Pray that every time I open my mouth I’ll be able to make Christ plain as day to them.

– Colossians 4:2-4
