Pray for Pure Water


Pray for Pure Water

It is easy to take a gulp of water and forget how blessed we are to have safe water available by simply turning on the kitchen faucet. However, millions of people in Asia have to wake up early to gather water from a local pond or hand pump. But there is no guarantee this water will not cause diseases. Many others have to wait in long lines for their ration of water from water trucks, and they may even endure riots if the water trucks empty before each family has had the chance to fill their water jugs.

This month we have the privilege to dig a little deeper into this water crisis as we seek the Lord in prayer. Below are a few prompts and some information to help you get started on your knees.


Pray for Those Struggling with Waterborne Diseases

Pray for Those Struggling with Waterborne Diseases

Imagine for a moment you live in a secluded Asian village. Your children lay sick, again, because of the murky water you gathered that morning and many mornings before that. You have no other choice but to use this impure water to wash your clothes, cook your food and clean your dishes. It is the only water available to you.

Many individuals have to face life-threatening waterborne illnesses on a daily basis. Let us pray for the those in Asia who are struggling with sicknesses due to the contaminated water around them. Let’s remember our missionaries and pastors who have to face these conditions as well. Pray for strong, healthy bodies.


Pray for BioSand Water Filters

Pray for BioSand Water Filters

BioSand water filters save lives by filtering polluted water. With filtered water, families live healthier lives. After seeing the loving thoughtfulness of Christ’s servants who help with maintained on these filters, individuals and entire villages are impacted by God’s kindness and become more open to hearing about Christ.

Ask the Lord to provide more families with BioSand water filters. Pray this tool will make an impact in their lives. Pray their hearts will be able to understand the compassion of Jesus as they realize He cares about every detail of their lives.


Pray for Jesus Wells

Pray for Jesus Wells

We have seen the Lord use Jesus Wells in profound ways. Unlike other local wells, which Christians or people of lower castes may be kept from using, Jesus Wells are freely accessible to all, regardless of who they are or where they have come from. Jesus Wells clearly demonstrate Christ’s love, and they leave a beautiful impression on the hearts of the villagers.

Please pray with us that God will provide more communities in Asia with pure water through Jesus Wells. Ask God to bless these villages for years to come through these wells.


Pray for Pastors and Missionaries

Pray for Pastors and Missionaries

Most Jesus Wells and BioSand water filters are placed in villages because a pastor or a missionary saw a community’s need and requested help from their field leadership.

Let’s ask the Lord to give pastors and missionaries resources to provide Jesus Wells and BioSand water filters in areas that need help most. Ask God to provide opportunities to share the love of the Father with those who now have the gift of pure water.


Pray for More Resources

Pray for More Resources

The need for pure water is vast. With annual water shortages from droughts and water sources becoming polluted or depleted over the years, there is an ever-present need.

Let us join together and ask the Lord to provide the funds and resources needed to drill more wells and produce more BioSand water filters so more lives can be saved.


Pray for Fruit

Pray for Fruit

Now imagine again you are in that Asian village with your sick children. One day, a Jesus Well is installed near your home. Your children’s health begin to improve. And instead of smelly, dirty water to rinse your dishes with, you can use fresh, clear water instead. You peer up at the plaque by the Jesus Well that reads, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water I give him will never thirst,” (John 4:13−14). There is now a new sense of hope in your life as you contemplate the meaning of these words. Someone cared enough for you to provide clean water for your family, and you are grateful.

Please pray for many to discover for themselves the depth of Jesus’ pure love for them. Ask the Lord to protect these Jesus Wells and pray they will serve communities for many years.
