Think about your church and the believers who worship with you every Sunday morning. Imagine you and your church family did not have a church building to meet in. There were no classrooms, no sanctuary or gymnasium to meet in, no foyer with coffee and donuts to greet you. Instead, you hosted your church family in your home every Sunday morning.
For multitudes of congregations in Asia, this is normal. In certain areas, it is difficult to begin the process of constructing a church building because of many obstacles, which may include opposition from anti-Christian groups, lack of finances and various extreme weather patterns. Fortunately, when church buildings are constructed, they not only provide a safe haven for believers, they also become the central hub of activities where believers can serve the Lord with joy.
This month, we have an opportunity to intervene in prayer for our brothers and sisters in Asia who do not have church buildings. Together, let us pray to the Lord for the various needs that arise because of this.
