How can I pray for Burundi?

Like any nation, Burundi’s needs are varied and complex, but we’re always encouraged to hear so many stories of lives transformed through answers to prayer. Below are some key areas that are always good to pray for, but if you’d like to hear more up-to-date requests and stories, we’d invite you to join us in two key areas.


The best way to stay connected with what’s happening in Burundi & Beyond, our newsletters contain a wide variety of uplifting stories, information on difficult situations and feedback on our various projects. 

Zoom Prayer Meetings

We meet on Zoom every Saturday to pray for Burundi. These meetings have been a huge encouragement to many and are a wonderful chance to taste the worldwide church as we gather from all corners of the globe to lift up our prayers for Burundi.
