We invite you and your family to join us in prayer for the people of Asia and their needs.
Gospel for Asia staff has a live streamed prayer meeting the first Friday of every month; however, for a time, we are on a brief hiatus from this live streaming. We will still share prayer requests with you and will update this page each month with new requests that we, as a staff, have been praying for.
Please continue to pray with us, and together, let's keep on trusting the Lord to do great and mighty things!
Pray with us for this month's topics
Mobile teams are groups of around three to five national missionaries that travel through rough terrain with their heavy-duty vehicle, all the while bringing the joy and peace of our Creator to those around them. After getting permission of the local village or community leaders, a mobile team will usually show a film on the life of Jesus and will take time afterward to answer any questions people may have and to pray for those who need encouragement. They work hard, sleep little, sacrifice much and pray often, yet they have fun, laugh together and see Jesus do amazing things in and through them.
Let's pray together for mobile teams across Asia:
- Praise God for these teams, and for the unity and love He produces in them!
- Please pray they will have good health and safety as they work hard and travel through rough terrain.
- Ask God to give the teams wisdom to minister to the specific needs of those they meet.
- Pray many people will be blessed by these mobile teams.

Fruit from Christmas Ministries
Though our Christmas celebrations are over, the gifts given through GFA's will likely impact families in Asia for their entire lives. Along with receiving Christmas gifts through the catalog, many people heard beautiful Christmas carols being sung or even attended local Christmas programs. And through the carols, programs and gifts, many families have discovered the true meaning of Christmas and have joy in Jesus. Please pray for the message of Christmas to continue to bear fruit in many families' lives in Asia.
Here are some ideas to pray for good fruit from all the ministry done during Christmas:
- Praise God for all the gifts given last year through GFA's Christmas Gift Catalog!
- Please pray families will be blessed by the gifts they received and will overcome poverty.
- Ask God to continue touching hearts in Asia through the Christmas story.
- Pray missionaries in Asia will know how to best minister to people interested in learning more about God's gift to us.
Join your prayers with those of our brothers and sisters across Asia who have been praying—some even for years—to see a church building built for their congregation. A church building can be a great blessing and encouragement for believers as well as help a pastor as he ministers to his community.
Please be praying for church buildings:
- Praise God He is answering our brothers' and sisters' prayers for church buildings in Asia!
- Pray God will provide the resources necessary to fund church buildings.
- Also, pray God will use church buildings to minister to families who haven't encountered Jesus yet.

Home Office Needs
The staff serving at Gospel for Asia's eight administrative offices around the globe are a vital link between the work on the field and those who pray for and support that work. While their roles vary, staff members work together to enable people in Asia to hear of Christ's great love.
Here are some ways you can pray:
- Pray staff will have good health and wisdom to fulfill their roles well.
- Praise God for His faithfulness to provide wisdom, and ask God to lead each project to bear eternal fruit.
- Pray the machinery and technology used for communicating with ministry supporters will function well.
- Ask God to raise up more staff to serve in each administrative office.
