Pray for Gospel for Asia-supported Bridge of Hope
Thousands of Bridge of Hope children carry with them a sense of hope as they dream of becoming doctors, teachers, government workers or computer specialists. Though many students come from impoverished backgrounds, they've learned to dream big while at their Bridge of Hope centres—and they discover a better future is within their grasp.
Over the days, weeks, months and years that students attend GFA-supported Bridge of Hope centres, parents gratefully watch their children thrive in their studies, mature in the arts and help keep their country beautiful through community-service projects. They see the benefits in the moral lessons and manners their children learn while at the centres, and they see their precious ones grow under the nurturing love of their teachers.
Please join us as we pray for the Lord to bless GFA-supported Bridge of Hope this month.
Pray for Project Coordinators
Each Bridge of Hope centre has a project coordinator who works behind the scenes to make sure the centre, its staff and the children, are doing well. They're engaged with every aspect of the centre, from taking part in teaching the students to organizing events to ensuring good stewardship over the centre's finances.
Let's pray the Lord will give project coordinators wisdom as they lead their Bridge of Hope centre. Ask the Lord to give them fresh ideas and vision as they lead.
Pray for Bridge of Hope Tutors
Imagine you were a Bridge of Hope Tutor. Children of various ages depend on you to teach them what they need to know to do well in school. You rejoice to see them excel, and you support them when they struggle. You pour into your students so much, and they look to you as an example.
Let us ask the Lord to fill Bridge of Hope tutors with strength and grace to teach their pupils. Pray they will have the energy and capacity to love on difficult days.
Pray for Staff
It takes multiple people to keep a Bridge of Hope centre running smoothly. All the tasty and nutritious food children receive at the centres comes from the willing and skillful hands of hired cooks. Social workers also keep tabs on the children and their families, making sure they're encouraged emotionally and mentally.
Let us ask the Lord to bless the cooks and social workers with joy as they serve. Pray specifically for the Lord to bless the social workers with discernment on how to minister to each child and their family.
Pray for the Students
Bridge of Hope has offered education and hope for the future to many students over the years. Many of these students graduate and go on to excel in college and careers. As these children experience the love and affirmation from staff, they have hope to rise above the cycle of poverty to pursue their aspirations.
We can ask the Lord to give these precious children grace as they focus on their studies and participate in different activities at the centres. Pray they can excel, and they can make a difference in their communities.
Pray for More Sponsors
Because people give to GFA's Bridge of Hope Program, children have a chance for a better life-filled with hope for a future that was once only a far-off dream. Sponsors make it possible for centres to continue running and for more and more children to experience the redemptive life.
Please pray the Lord will continue to give His people a burden for the precious, needy children in Asia, and pray there will be many more sponsors in the days to come.
