Refugees need our prayers - and everyone, young and old, can help in this way.
Sometimes it is difficult to know how to begin praying for others. IAFR can help you pray for specific people and specific needs along the refugee highway. A good first step is to add your name to our Email Lists.
A second step might be to visit our Toolbox.
Not everyone is able to go and serve refugees. But we can all help them survive and recover from forced displacement.
IAFR missionaries need a strong network of financial partners in order to pursue their mission. Our projects rely on the investments of generous donors. Undesignated gifts are applied to where the needs are greatest. Join our team of financial partners and make a difference in the lives of refugees today.

Father in heaven, please be near those who are forcibly displaced today.
Some know you. Others do not. You love them all. May they all know your presence, protection and provision.
You have not forgotten them. You know their names. You know their stories. You know their journey. Please lead them.
You are not far from them. You know their loss and suffering. You suffered too. Please heal and comfort them.
You are not against them. You deeply care for each man, woman and child. Please renew their faith, their hope and their strength.
They've lost their place in the world. Be their refuge. Graciously lead them to a safe place where they can settle and rebuild their lives.
We pray for peace, justice and reconciliation in their countries of origin.
We pray in the name of Jesus who was once himself a refugee in Egypt.
There are 70.8 million forcibly displaced children, women and men in the world - the highest number ever recorded. That's 1 in every 108 people alive today. Another 37,000 people are uprooted every day.
First, God is alive and well along the refugee highway today. Second, Refugees are more than people in need. They are an important part of the solution. And third, God has begun a worldwide movement of his people to welcome and love refugees.
