"My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations" - Mark 11:17

Asia

I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go - Abraham Lincoln

The Challenge:
Many times our efforts to bless the nations will seem to fail and we fall to our knees out of desperation. However, God wants us in a posture of prayer and He will take our feeble efforts and use them mightily.

indonesian-marketAsia is a continent of extremes: 

  • It has the world's highest peak and the ocean's deepest point.  
  • It has many of the world's richest billionaires and many millions of the world's poorest people.  
  • It has some of the most advanced societies, as well as some of the most undeveloped areas.  
  • It has the world's largest cities, but the largest rural populations as well.  
  • It has the world's biggest populations (China and India), as well as very small countries like Singapore and Brunei.

 

This region holds examples of almost every possible political regime, from various forms of democracy to total state control, and from monarchy to theocracy (rule by religious leaders).  Asia is set to become the dynamic hub of global politics and economics, but it has seen the most military conflicts on its soil of any continent in history.  The increasing economic power of China especially, but also Indian will greatly influence the rest of the continent.  The growing global demand for oil and gas means that areas like the Arab Peninsula, Iraq, Iran and Central Asia will also continue to play a major economic role.

Asia is the birthplace or heartland three major world religions apart from Christianity - Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. This means diversity in the number of religions practiced here, but also in ways societies and governments handle religious faith and freedoms.  Persecution and religious oppression are most intense in Asia.  It is also the continent where Christian growth has been the fastest and the most miraculous, from Iran to China and from Mongolia to Indonesia.  ~ Pray for the World.
