‘Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.’ (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

Our prayers often arise from a feeling of being troubled: something is wrong and we call out to God to put it right. In his grace, God hears us and acts. He is the God of all comfort – the one who not only hears us but cares for us and comforts us when we are troubled. So we pray, knowing we will be comforted and trusting God to work through us to comfort others.

Please join us in calling out to the God of all comfort for our partners and the children they serve. A few current prayer points are below. You can also sign up for our quarterly prayer diary, or to become a prayer partner and receive ad hoc prayer requests by email. Contact us to get started.


Latest prayer points

Please remember BCT and our partners within your personal prayer times or your regular prayer group. Below are some fresh points for prayer:

  • Your kingdom come: God is opening the eyes of church leaders all over the world, to their duty to care for children with disabilities – people like Jane, a pastor in Gahanga, connected with APRECOM. Jane says it ‘broke her heart’ to see children with disabilities being marginalised, so she now also runs a disability support group for 15 parents and their children. Praise God for Jane’s compassion and servant heart.
  • Strides forward: Please keep in your prayers the amazing work Pastor Jean-Paul is doing in training pastors in the Goma area. Praise God that already, even after just a short explanation of the ‘Heart of the Matter’ resources, local authorities are collaborating with LVLE to enforce child protection in the area, including in so-called ‘prayer rooms’ where much of the abuse relating to witchcraft accusations takes place.
  • Pray for Africa's response to the COVID-19 crisis, and especially for our project partners. Wukwashi has been forced to cancel its support groups until further notice, to avoid enabling infections. Please pray that the families concerned will still be able to access vital support. And Rev Jean-Paul of LVLE has been invited to appear on local television to advise viewers on their response to the pandemic. Pray that he will speak with true wisdom. Above all, please pray for peace and understanding to prevail throughout Africa, and for a swift end to infections.
