Praying for Bibleless People

When you last read your Bible, was it for daily devotion, comfort or wisdom? Can you imagine for a moment what it would be like if you didn’t have God’s Word in your own language?

No Psalms, no teaching from Paul, no Proverbs. Nothing. That’s the reality for one in five people around the world. And for some of those people, translation hasn’t even begun. This needs to change.

Here are some ways you can pray:
  • Pray that speakers of every language in the world would receive the Scriptures in whatever form they need it.
  • Pray for quality translations that speak meaningfully to people’s hearts.
  • Ask God to raise up prayer teams who will begin breaking up the soil for Bible translation through worship and intercession.
  • Pray for perseverance. Pray that those involved in the Bible translation task would not grow weary or give up before the work is complete.
Virtual Equip #52 orientation begins tomorrow, with 21 adults and 13 MKs (missionary kids). Pray for technical things to run smoothly and for two good weeks online together as these new colleagues begin their Wycliffe careers. God is using your prayers and gifts for my Wycliffe ministry to impact these "newbies" who will serve around the world so that more may have their lives transformed by God's Word in a language they clearly understand. Thank you!

I'll be working from Mom's in Indiana as we facilitate this Equip. Mom continues to make progress, healing from her fall and gaining strength after her heart procedures. We are grateful for your ongoing prayers.

Please let me know how I may pray with you.
