Pray for GFA’s Clean Water Initiatives

Pray for GFA’s Clean Water Initiatives

A stream of clear, clean water is what you expect to see when you turn on a faucet, right? If brown, murky, water poured out of that faucet, would you dare to touch it, wash your hands or face with it, or use it to brush your teeth? Would you fill a cup with it and drink it?

For many people in Asia living in areas affected by water crisis, the brown, murky water taken from ponds, lakes and rivers is their everyday drinking, cleaning and bathing water. It’s not a choice they want to make; it’s the choice they must make.

Many families suffer because they don’t have any clean-water sources or filters. According to the World Health Organization, “Globally, at least 2 billion people use a drinking water source contaminated with [feces].”1 They estimate that by 2025, “half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas.”2

Clean water also helps prevent the spread of dangerous bacterial and viral infections. The ability to wash one’s hands on a near daily basis with clean water results in good hygiene—which in turn curbs virulent diseases, like the coronavirus.

GFA is helping to eliminate the use of dangerous, contaminated water through its clean-water initiatives: Jesus Wells and BioSand water filters. Join us in praying for this ministry and for the people in Asia who are in need of clean water.

Pray for People Affected by Contaminated Water

Pray for People Affected by Contaminated Water

In some parts of Asia, the only water available to drink is surface water taken from streams, rivers, lakes and ponds, which are contaminated by different elements, such as animal feces. There may not be any deep-bore wells or home-filtration systems within walking distance that provide pure water to keep people from contracting illnesses.

Please pray for people in need of clean water, that the Lord will give them wisdom on how to stay healthy. Pray GFA workers are able to provide Jesus Wells or BioSand water filters for these areas and families.


Pray for Jesus Wells

Pray for Jesus Wells

Since 2000, GFA workers have helped drill thousands of water wells in communities in need of clean water. These Jesus Wells are scattered across the different Asian terrains, providing men, women and children with pure, healthy—and tasty—water. Anyone can use them, and they’re a reminder of God’s tender compassion.

Pray these wells will continue to produce an abundant stream of clean water for communities for many years to come.


Pray for BioSand Water Filters

Pray for BioSand Water Filters

BioSand water filters help families turn dirty surface water into water they can safely consume and use—without fear of contracting deadly waterborne diseases. These filters bring peace of mind and are perfect solutions for alleviating a family’s struggle for clean water.

Please pray BioSand water filters will bless many families living in areas with no clean water source. Pray these filters are well cared for and last for many years.


Pray for More Communities to Receive Clean Water

Pray for More Communities to Receive Clean Water

Clean, pure water is a precious commodity many people in Asia don’t have. Whether because of drought, flooding or lack of a water supply, people are suffering without good water—and they do not have the resources to find a solution. GFA workers are ministering to this need by installing Jesus Wells and providing BioSand water filters, but the need is vast.

Pray the Lord blesses GFA workers with favor and wisdom so they are able to minister to people’s dire need for clean water. Pray they have the resources they need to do this.


Pray for Clean Water During Crises

Pray for Clean Water During Crises

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the consistent messages has been to wash our hands, and wash them often. According to the Center of Disease control, “Keeping hands clean is especially important to help prevent the virus from spreading.”3 But what if you lived in an area that had no clean water source? What if you couldn’t wash your hands? The COVID-19 crisis sharpened the harsh reality of the lack of good hygiene and health faced by millions living in poverty, or in water-scarce areas. A source of pure water available to needy individuals hampers the spread of viruses like COVID-19 and ensures the health and safety of recipients.

Pray Jesus Wells and BioSand water filters would be a defining factor in keeping families healthy during epidemics like COVID-19.

Pray for Christ to be Glorified

Pray for Christ to be Glorified

Every Jesus Well bears a plaque with Christ’s name and His words explaining He is the Living Water. Hundreds of thousands of people take water from Jesus Wells dotting the Asian landscapes every day, which means hundreds of thousands of people can learn about the Savior.

BioSand water filters are given in the name of Jesus and are tangible expressions of God’s love and compassion for people in need.

Pray the Lord’s love is seen and experienced whenever anyone drinks from a Jesus Well or has a cup of clean, tasty water from a BioSand water filter.
