Pray for Asia's Women Missionaries

Pray for Kids in Need

Poverty keeps millions of children across the world in a seemingly endless cycle of despair—around 356 million children live in extreme poverty, which includes 150 million pushed into poverty in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. With no way to afford education, proper health care or even food, many children suffer in destitution, often with no way out. Hope is a stranger to these precious children.

Pray for the Equipping of Missionaries

Pray for the Equipping of Missionaries

Unknown villages tucked away in the mountains, dusty roads and deep lush forests—these are only some of the places where GFA-supported national missionaries serve. Some travel on foot, while others have bicycles or motorcycles to get around.

Pray for Those Who Need Bicycles

Pray for Those Who Need Bicycles

In many of the areas where GFA World serves, transportation options are limited. These rural places, in which many of the world’s poor people live, are isolated by distance and by challenging terrain. GFA workers may trek miles, often by foot, just to visit a remote village. The isolation also affects the people within those communities, hampering adults from reaching their workplaces and children from obtaining a proper education.

Pray for Water

Pray for Water

Water is essential for life. Yet 663 million people across the globe don’t have access to safe drinking water. In many of these areas, water can be scarce, and locals are forced to travel miles, often by foot, to obtain it and then haul it back to their homes for everyday use. But the water is often contaminated, and the people forced to drink it suffer from waterborne diseases.

Pray for Widows and Abandoned Children

Pray for Widows and Abandoned Children

Visit orphans and widows in their distress—this is what God tells us is pure, undefiled religion (see James 1:27). In other words, take care of them, make sure they are doing well, especially in their time of great need. Yet in so many regions across the globe, widows and orphans endure horrendous abuse of various kinds.

Pray for Winter Clothing and Blankets

Pray for Winter Clothing and Blankets

When the winter winds are at their strongest, impoverished families in Asia struggle to find warmth. Many can’t afford to buy warm clothing or blankets—even more so now, after the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns prevented many from earning livable wages. Those who have no home—people living on the street or in tents—are among the most vulnerable.

Some families have been wandering in the desert for more than a week in similar desperation. People are suffering.
