Join in Prayer for United Bible Societies
Support the Global Mission of Making the Bible Available, Known, and Loved
On May 9, 2018, United Bible Societies will hold an annual day of prayer to give God praise and to seek his continued guidance for Bible ministry.
It was on this day that the United Bible Societies Fellowship was founded in 1946. Now, nearly 150 Bible Societies — including American Bible Society — operate in more than 200 nations and territories around the world. Together, we make God’s Word available to as many people as possible through Bible translation, distribution, and Bible-based trauma healing.
This global network of Bible Societies is a diverse community, with different languages, cultures, and Christian faith traditions. But we are united in purpose and mission. We are motivated by our love for God and his Word. We are moved to action by our belief that God’s Word can do extraordinary things in the lives of people everywhere. This is what propels us forward in our ministries.
Please Join us in Prayer
We know God hears the faithful prayers of his people. As we continue together in the mission of making the Bible available, pray that all people will desire to know God more deeply and submit their lives to him. Pray for strength, protection, and perseverance for Bible Societies, including these specific requests from our partners in need.

“ Argentina experienced a major flood. We are supporting the translation work in West Toba, so pray for the translators and the community.”
