Please pray for Yemen. The first case of coronavirus has sadly been reported there. The country is also facing the world’s largest humanitarian crisis – 24 million people are struggling to survive as the country is on the brink of famine. Many do not have access to clean water or safe sanitation, which will prove deadly if the virus spreads.

Pray for peace and unity from leaders so the virus can be contained. And pray for wisdom for Tearfund’s local partners as they try to safely serve some of the world’s most vulnerable people.

And as the virus continues to spread around the world, please pray that governments will include faith leaders in their coronavirus response so that they best meet the needs of people living in poverty. Faith leaders know the needs of their communities and how best to respond with available resources. Ask that governments will release funding for faith groups to share public health information to reach even more people – particularly those who are marginalised.
