Each month, we will join together in praying for our siblings doing mission and ministry around the world.

May: Disaster Response

Every year, natural disasters seem to come with more frequency and fury, displacing people and causing millions of dollars in damages to businesses and homes. As always, the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) responds with care and compassion, thanks to the generosity and support of United Methodists across the connection. From giving out ‘flood buckets’ to sending teams of trained early responders to providing long-term case management assistance, The United Methodist Church has always been present for local communities throughout the recovery process. For more information on how you or your church can become involved in disaster response in West Ohio, click here.

This month, please pray for:

  • Week 1: Survivors of recent disasters in the U.S. that have hit Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Ohio.
  • Week 2: Survivors of recent international disasters, including those in Taiwan, China, Tanzania, and Kenya.
  • Week 3: Early Response Teams as they respond with compassion to disasters near and far.
  • Week 4: Financial and volunteer support for West Ohio and UMCOR’s disaster response ministries.

Never doubt that your prayers make a difference!
