Pray for Compassion Services: sharing God's love while meeting physical needs

During Christ's ministry on earth, multitudes of people found healing and restoration through His powerful hands. Today, Gospel for Asia-supported Compassion Services teams serve as Jesus' hands and feet, going to places of incredible need to touch the lives of destitute, downtrodden and heartbroken people.

Through Compassion Services—leprosy ministry, medical ministry, disaster relief and slum ministry—many who were unaware Jesus ever walked on earth are now discovering His unfailing love. Please pray for Compassion Services.


Slum Ministry

Slum Ministry

Slums contain some of the most heartbreaking sights imaginable: Families live in cramped huts; open sewers flow beside homes; parents and children work long hours at labour jobs; malnourished children quench their thirst with disease-laden water. Gospel for Asia-supported slum ministry addresses the physical needs of those dwelling in slums and also shares about the loving Father who invites the weary into His heavenly home.

Please pray for provision for those living in slums, and ask God to reveal Himself to them.


Leprosy Ministry

Leprosy Ministry

Stigma linked to leprosy leads many people to hide their condition. If left untreated, it ravages their bodies. Fear prompts communities to shun those with the disease and forces leprosy patients into seclusion. Gospel for Asia-supported workers follow Christ's example of caring for those afflicted with leprosy. By providing treatment and practical help for leprosy patients, they show that Jesus loves and accepts all—even those rejected by society and disfigured by disease.

Please ask God to heal leprosy patients, to restore their relationships with those in society, and to strengthen the people ministering to them.


Disaster Relief

Disaster Relief

Every year, natural disasters wreak havoc on villages in Asia by destroying homes, livelihoods and hopes. Compassion Services disaster-relief teams bring desperately needed relief items, such as food and shelter, to victims, and also offer the sorrowful a source of comfort. As they carry the comfort of Christ to grieving families, team members need God's strength and grace to minister in heartbreaking situations.

Please pray many victims of natural disasters will receive help and comfort through Compassion Services and will rebuild their lives with Christ as their foundation.


Medical Ministry

Medical Ministry

Many easily avoided diseases still destroy lives throughout Asia, simply because families are unable to afford treatment or have never been taught basic hygiene skills. Gospel for Asia-supported medical ministry strengthens communities by educating families on the importance of hygiene and by hosting medical camps for the sick. Gospel for Asia-supported workers also share about the Great Physician, who heals the heart as well as the body.

Please pray many more people will find healing through medical ministry, and ask God to provide the needed medical supplies and personnel.


Refreshment for Those Serving the Needy

Refreshment for Those Serving the Needy

Some Compassion Services teams minister in one location day after day, helping leprosy patients or slum families, while other teams respond to disasters, bringing relief and hope to new communities. As they witness extreme hardship, poverty, grief and hopelessness in the lives around them, these team members need refreshment and strength from God to comfort people with His love.

Please ask God to give wisdom and joy to Compassion Services teams, and pray many people will find hope through their ministry.


Protection and Favour

Protection and Favour

Burdened with a desire to serve the hurting, Compassion Services teams often minister in harsh conditions. When helping earthquake victims or serving in slums, they also live in the midst of devastation and disease. Despite their sacrificial service, their willingness to serve may be met with antagonism by those who are not willing to receive them into the community.

Please pray God will surround Compassion Services teams with His protection and grant them favour with those they minister among.
