Prayer Wall

Send in your prayers and we will share them anonymously

Welcare is a Christian charity, and our work is underpinned by prayer.

Many staff, children and families we work with, schools and churches have requested that we share prayer requests more widely and we created a prayer wall to reflect the hopes and fears of the community we serve.

Please send prayer requests to and our staff will post requests on the wall. We only offer prayers for those who have given their consent and never share names or identifying personal circumstances.

A Prayer for Welcare

Living God, you have made us in your own image and we live and grow best in companionship with others: bless the work of Welcare with parents, carers and children. May Welcare staff, volunteers and supporters continue to provide places and spaces where trust is grown, understanding enabled, relationships developed, new confidence found, and potential released. Amen.
