Pray with us for this month's topics


Bridge of Hope

Millions of children in Asia grow up with little to no education. But through GFA's Bridge of Hope Program, children are receiving a quality education and so much more—a daily meal, regular medical care and opportunities to grow in their God-given talents, just to name a few.

As children's lives are transformed through Bridge of Hope, they bring new aspirations and knowledge home with them, and their families benefit as a result. Even beyond this, Bridge of Hope centers do much to uplift the communities they serve.

There are many ways we can be praying, but here are just a few of them:

  • Praise God more than 75,000 children are enrolled in Bridge of Hope!
  • Pray each child will be healthy and flourish as they learn and grow.
  • Pray Bridge of Hope teachers will know how to help each child excel in their schoolwork and their individual giftings.
  • Ask God to provide the way for many more Bridge of Hope centers to be started.

Pastors in Asia

The men who pastor GFA-supported churches hold a significant role in the Body of Christ as they help minister to men and women in their congregations. God also gives these pastors opportunities in their day-to-day lives to encourage other people in their villages who may not know Jesus. Let's pray for pastors in Asia as they serve the Lord.

Here are some ideas for prayer:

  • • Praise God He is blessing many through GFA-supported pastors!
  • Pray pastors will be sensitive to God's leading when they prepare sermons, pour into their congregations and connect with people in their areas.
  • Ask God to protect pastors as they serve and give these men good health.
  • Pray every pastor in Asia will have enough financial support for their ministries.

Country Focus: Sri Lanka

Mountains, beaches and jungles all combine to make up the beautiful island of Sri Lanka. Though full of beauty, this country also carries the scars of several decades of war—civil war. Greater peace dwells in Sri Lanka now, but many people are still struggling to rebuild their lives. Severe flooding that occurred last year has only seemed to worsen the problems for people in Sri Lanka. But Gospel for Asia-supported workers have brought relief to hundreds of families through 250 relief packets, and 400 more people received gifts through GFA's Christmas Gift Catalogue. (Many of these Christmas gifts are providing a source of income for families impoverished and war-torn.) Let's be praying for Sri Lanka, for the people who received gifts and for many more who are still in need.

Here are some ways we can be praying for these people:

  • Praise God He has provided hundreds of families with food and income-generating gifts through GFA-supported work!
  • Please pray many more people in Sri Lanka will receive relief from last year's flooding.
  • Ask God to bless our brothers and sisters in Sri Lanka as they serve Him and love others.
  • Pray many men and women will find healing from the effects of war.

Pray for Abandoned Children

Countless children in Asia have been abandoned because their parents have died, couldn’t afford to feed them or simply did not want them anymore. These boys and girls often experience unimaginable suffering while living on their own.

Pray for Asia's Women Missionaries

Pray for Asia's Women Missionaries

In a culture where women don’t interact freely and openly with men, heartfelt conversations with male missionaries are limited. But God is raising up sisters in Christ to reach women in their spheres of influence.

Children are the future of any society. Each new generation needs biblical guidance, but it’s especially needed among those living in regions where there has historically been little or no knowledge of Christ.

Pray for Christmas Gifts

Pray for Christmas Gifts

It's not in the name of good ol' Saint Nicholas that Gospel for Asia-supported missionaries are distributing much-needed gifts to thousands of people across South Asia. With Jesus Christ on their minds, our brothers and sisters on the field give away Christmas gifts with the intent to celebrate Christ with multitudes of people who may have never experienced God's love.

Pray for Gospel for Asia-supported Radio

Pray for Gospel for Asia-supported Radio

There are millions in South Asia who haven't heard the Good News of salvation. One of the quickest and most cost-effective means of sharing the love of Christ with them is GFA Radio. This "invisible messenger" overcomes geographical and political boundaries, reaching the ears of millions in remote villages.

Pray for Gospel Literature

Pray for Gospel Literature

Gospel for Asia-supported missionaries never head out to share the love of Christ without Gospel literature in hand. They know the powerful impact a small tract containing God's message of salvation can have on so many lives.

Pray for National Missionaries

Pray for National Missionaries

National missionaries aren't superhuman with supernatural abilities and powers. They're everyday people who love the Lord and rely on Him for help as they give their lives to further God's Kingdom. And the Lord uses them as powerful instruments to reach their lost neighbors.

Pray for Pure Water

Pray for Pure Water

If you were one of the millions of people around the world who lack adequate access to pure water, your life would be a lot more difficult. Just imagine how much time and effort it would take if you needed to carry every single gallon of water you used—whether for drinking, cooking, bathing or even watering your houseplants. To make matters worse, your life would be at risk from drinking the dirty, potentially pathogen-ridden water you gathered at the local pond or open well.
