If you are a church or religious organisation who would like to share more stories and images about the work of MAF, then in this section you can find ready-written material, prepared by the MAF UK News team, for you to download and use.
Our quarterly Prayer Diary includes daily prayer needs, photos and themed scriptures to equip you in intercession. As an extra bonus, the Prayer Diary comes with our Flying for Life Magazine - full of up to date stories from the countries in which we serve.
The MAF prayer devotions are designed to give something back to our supporters. It is easy to always ask you to pray for us, but we wanted to provide something that might inspire and challenge you in your everyday walk with the Lord.
We hope you enjoy these monthly prayer devotions. It is our prayer that you will experience a greater depth in your connection with God as you journey with us.

The wife turned to the husband and said, ‘Honey, do you remember when we first started dating and you used to just casually reach over and take my hand?’ The husband looked over at her, smiled, and obligingly took her aged hand in his.
Monday 19 September saw the nation stand still as we collectively mourned the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. Her State Funeral was televised throughout the day — a finale of sorts after ten days of national mourning.
Do you ever stop for a minute and look at the Church? I don't just mean the church you go to or the buildings in which we gather. I'm talking about taking an honest look at the Body of Christ. Is she healthy? Is she well?
