Latest prayer points

Arabs in Burundi: Around 3,400 Arabs live in Burundi. Many run shops, restaurants and tourist businesses in urban areas. Some run large coffee and tea plantations. Pray for Christians to see this unreached people group on their doorstep.
Chechens of Russia: There are nearly one-and-a-half million Chechen people in Russia, mostly in the Caucasus mountains between the Caspian and Black Seas. Jesus longs for them to know a peace that can only come through the gospel.
Avars in Russia: There are 779,000 Dagestani Avars living in Russia. The code of honour and shame is deeply ingrained in the Avar cultural psyche. Pray for dreams and visions among influential community leaders.

Asylum Seekers in West Yorkshire: For a small city, Wakefield has a large number of asylum seekers: around 500. As well as being Chair of the Trustees for the local City of Sanctuary, Dick and his wife Flora are keen to see their hosting project take shape. 'Asylum Hosting Wakefield' still awaits charity registration, but there is a growing need to find temporary homes for destitute asylum seekers with local volunteer hosts. Pray this registration goes ahead.
