Congolese pastors worshipping‘Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.’ (Psalm 91:1)

How comforting to know that, whatever life throws at us, we rest in the shadow of the Almighty, who defends us and provides for us. We pray, safe in God's protection and confident that his purposes are for the good of all his people.

Please join us in calling out to God for our partners and for the children they serve so faithfully. As we do that, we know that he will not just answer our prayers but also speak to us. 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:

  • Pray for the global effects of COVID-19. In the global south in particular, the pandemic has dramatically affected many people's income and the food supply chain. With fears growing for a worldwide recession after the pandemic recedes, millions of people are at risk of poverty and food scarcity. Pray with us that the world's most vulnerable children will be provided with the food they need.
  • Many of the communities our partners serve lack basic resources and services. Praise God that APRECOM was recently able to provide soap and hygiene products to extremely vulnerable families in Kajera, Bukora, Bugesera and Kigali. Ask God to multiply the impact of these gifts so that these families will experience much-improved health.
  • In the face of fear and lack of understanding about COVID-19, there has been a real need for authoritative information and guidance. Praise God for the way he has made it possible for BCT to take steps towards meeting this need: we have created and collated resources for churches, to help them advise their communities on how to protect themselves and limit the spread of the virus. Feedback has been very encouraging. Please pray that these resources will continue to have an impact on health, social cohesion and inclusion, and that they will also prove powerful in tackling harmful beliefs that fuel child witch accusations and other forms of child abuse.
