Join Us in Prayer

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 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

Widows in Asia

Life as a widow can be so difficult, no matter where you live. But in many places in Asia, becoming a widow is like living in hell on earth. Society often believes widows have sinned in some horrible way which resulted in their husbands’ deaths, and as a result, widows can be labeled as cursed and rejected as outcasts. Even family members may walk out on their own mothers, sisters or daughters if they are widowed.

As hopeless as this situation seems, God cares deeply for each widow in Asia—so much so that He sent Jesus to their rescue. So let’s believe He will bring new life to these hurting widows.

Let’s pray for widows in Asia:

  • Praise God He sees each widow and cares for them.
  • Pray widows will be able to grieve their husbands’ deaths.
  • Ask God to provide for each widow’s needs.
  • Pray each widow will find hope—and the joy of Jesus—for her and her children’s future.

Putting an End to Child Labor

According to UNICEF, as of 2016, there are an estimated 150,000,000 (150 million) children who are involved in child labor worldwide. June 12 is World Day Against Child Labor, so let’s remember these suffering children around the world who are caught in hard labor, slavery and sex trafficking.

And as we pray, let’s also remember who God is and His heart for these children.

“Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry. The LORD gives freedom to the prisoners. … The LORD watches over the strangers; He relieves the fatherless and widow…” (Psalm 146:7,9).

Here are some ways we can be praying:

  • Pray abandoned children will be restored to their families.
  • Pray children will be freed from child labor and abuse. Most of these children do not get enough to eat, and the physical labor they’re forced into can cripple their bodies.
  • Pray for the girls—and boys—forced into the sex trade. Ask our great God to rescue these children and be very near to them (see Psalm 27:10 and Psalm 34:18).
  • Pray God will bless the governments of Asian countries in their efforts to end the exploitation of children.

Women Missionaries

In cultures that maintain strict social rules for men and women, men aren’t always able to help widows or abandoned children in the same way women can. Let’s pray for women missionaries as they pour out their lives to love people who are hurting and broken.

Here are some ideas for prayer:

  • Praise God He is impacting many families and people through women missionaries.
  • Pray God will enable these women to minister to many widows and orphans.
  • Ask God to fill these women with His love for the people they help.
  • Pray God will call many more women in Asia to serve those in need.

Unity in the Body of Christ

Corporately, our GFA staff has been reading and praying through the book of Acts. In nearly every chapter, we’ve been reminded of the need to pray for unity in our ministry and in the Body of Christ at large. So, let’s join our hearts with Jesus and agree with His prayer: “May they [believers] experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me…” (John 17:23a, NLT).

Here are some ways we can be praying:

  • Praise God we are His children and have the privilege to love and serve one another!
  • Praise God He empowers us to live this life of love and unity through His Spirit.
  • Pray there will be unity and love in the Body of Christ, both in the U.S. and around the world.
  • Ask God to give His children boldness to love one another and to share with those in need.
  • Pray God’s Word will guide us as we grow in love (see Psalm 119:105).
