“The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” – James 5:16
Please pray for our partners in Africa and Asia who provide shoes and other life-transforming help for people affected by leprosy and related diseases. And also for people like Ramnandan, who make shoes and prosthetics; for safety and precision as they work with sharp equipment. For more prayer requests please visit leprosy.org/prayer/

Living in a remote village in Bangladesh with her two young daughters, Nazma got leprosy 16 years ago. Although she was spared the disfigurements that this disease causes, she has nerve damage. It has left her hands numb.
