This section is updated weekly with new prayer items from our field workers.


Please pray that we will be able to fill the HR/Recruitment role within the MAF New Zealand team with exactly the right person—and that He will put the ministry of MAF on their hearts.



Pray for the Kajjansi airfield team in Uganda, as they begin making preparations for another upgrade of their runway. Pray that the work will go ahead quickly and effectively.


WOODWARD, Vaughan & Rosemary

Ryan. Institutional Donor Relations Manager & Global Disaster Response Deputy Manager, Cairns.

Please pray for Vaughan as he leads the Disaster Response department’s coordination of the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out programme. Nineteen MAF programmes lie within the World Health Organisation’s “COVAX” programme (set up as a global initiative aimed at equitable access to vaccines).



IT Support Officer, Cairns

Please continue to pray for our IT work, which is even more essential now that staff are often unable to meet together in person. Pray that we will find ways to make the IT services even more accessible and helpful for all of the programmes we support.




Pray for our daughter Kate and fiancé Doug as they get married today. Pray that it will be a blessed time of celebration for them, their family and friends. Pray God’s blessings on their future and that they will know His favour on them as they begin their new life journey together.


POUND, Jonathan & Michele

Abby, Daniel, Joseph and Benjamin. Candidate Pilot, South Sudan.

Thank God for His abundant love and His care and protection. Please pray for travelling mercies as we tour around the South Island. Please pray that God will speak through our message as we present at churches this month, and that He will receive the glory.



Katie, Alana, Danielle and Lucy. Pilot, PNG.

Restrictions are making it difficult to do medevac flights in Madagascar. Pray for wisdom for the team as they work within the regulations set up. Pray that whenever it is not possible to fly, they will find alternative ways to serve the communities in Madagascar.
