Pray for Christmas Gifts


Pray for Christmas Gifts

What do mosquito nets, water buffalo, sewing machines and outdoor toilets have in common? Each one meets profound needs for families in Asia and provides an opportunity for them to experience God’s even greater gift: His Son.

These items, and many other gifts found in Gospel for Asia’s Christmas Gift Catalogue, demonstrate Christ’s love in tangible and practical ways. Some provide an impoverished family with a source of income, while others help or by helping them gain a higher quality of life through better health and education. As we celebrate Christ’s birth, please join us in praying for these life-changing gifts.

Through Gospel for Asia’s Christmas Gift Catalogue, believers around the world can celebrate Christ’s birth by touching the lives of families that are caught in despair. By God’s grace, hundreds of thousands of families are finding new opportunities and hope through gifts like those in the catalog. Last year alone, 600,989 families in Asia received Christmas gifts through the generosity of GFA friends! Praise God! But there are still millions who struggle every day and see no hope on the horizon.

Please pray more people will provide life-changing gifts this Christmas, and ask God to minister to poor families in Asia that feel they have no hope.

Each one of the millions of people in Asia is unique and individually loved by God, yet many have never heard their Creator’s loves them. Whether it’s an income-generating gift such as a goat, or a community development gift like a Jesus Well, a gift from the catalog can help bring news of eternal hope. As a result of these gifts, many communities are discovering greater joy and purpose in life.

Please pray families and communities will gain internal peace through these Christmas gifts.

Sewing machines, rickshaws, farm animals and many other income-generating gifts help families start small businesses to escape the cycle of living hand to mouth, enabling them to educate their children and even save up for family emergencies. Over time, their small businesses can grow or even become a catalysts for finding additional sources of income, which can completely change the future of their families.

Please pray businesses will thrive, animals will remain strong and healthy, and tools will function well for many years.


Pray for Wisdom During Distribution

Pray for Wisdom During Distribution

Gospel for Asia-supported pastors observe the needs of people in their areas and pray about which person or family would be most benefited by a gift. Many families in their communities live in difficult situations, so pastors must be led by the Lord as they determine who should receive a gift and which gift best suits each family’s circumstances.

Please ask God to grant wisdom to pastors during the distribution process, and pray they will have the opportunity to build new relationships with people in their community.

Gift distributions are held throughout the year, but Christmastime is an especially significant time for presenting families with their new gifts. For many people, receiving a gift helps them understand the incredible meaning of Christmas for the very first time.

Please pray the Lord will prepare the hearts of gift recipients and enable them to grasp the magnitude of His grace.


Pray for Gifts for Pastors and Missionaries

Some gifts within the catalogue support the ministries of national workers. Many Gospel for Asia-supported pastors and missionaries are aided through helpful tools like bicycles, winter clothing packets, LCD projectors and literature. Equipped with these needed resources, they are able to better minister to the people they are giving their lives to serve.

Please pray pastors and missionaries will receive the tools they need to minister effectively.
