Pray Around the World
Bible Societies around the world are helping to spread God’s message of hope and love with those who need it most. Here are prayer requests from a select group of Bible Societies that ask you to lift them up in prayer.
Please pray for the Bolivian population. Most people earn less than $180 per month. Pray also for the completion of the Quechua Bible and that the Word of God will reach special groups, such as victimized women, abandoned children, the elderly, those affected by HIV, and sexual abuse victims.
Please pray that local funding will continue to increase in response to the Gallery of Students’ Heroes flagship project. Pray also that there will be a successful reactivation of the regional volunteers program, the mobilization of the Jacob Joseph Legacy Foundation to raise resources from churches, state and private sectors, developmental agencies and individuals. And ask for an increase in full-time staff, enabling the Bible Society to achieve commercial viability and become self-financing.
Thank the Lord for the fruitful work of the Bible Society of Lebanon in providing assistance to thousands of Syrian refugee families, as well as for the projects Bible World and Books for Life. Please pray for the development of three projects: Peace and Justice Bible, Western Armenian Study Bible and the One Year Bible. Pray also for political stability in the country.
Please say a special prayer for the Bible translation projects into sign language. May the Word of God teach the hard of hearing or those who cannot speak to praise the Lord. A glossary of biblical terms in sign language with Christian music videos in Sinhalese and Tamil is being prepared. Praise God for this project. Pray also for the campaign that will encourage churches to plant a tree and then donate the cash value of the corresponding wood to the local Bible Society.
The number of believers in Thailand has never reached 1 percent of the population. The Thai Bible Society has translated the Bible into Thai and other minority languages, such as Shan, Pwo Karen, Mien, Lahu and Ahka. Praise God for this. Please pray for more opportunities to distribute the Holy Bible through secular bookstores in Thailand.
Thank God for his constant support of the Bible Society of Togo’s work. Praise the Lord for the completion of Bible translations into Bassar, Mina and Ewe. Please pray for the ministry with children, teenagers, the military and women, as well as for the impact of the Faith Comes By Hearing project in French.
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
