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.
Praise God that we, the Bible Society in Cyprus, continue to bring the Word of God to the many tourists and refugees who come to this country. Thank him for the Greek New Testaments that the Ministry of Education and the Church of Cyprus distribute free of charge to schools annually.
Please pray for Bible work in the country, particularly for improvement of interaction with Scriptures among young people.
Give thanks for good progress with translation projects. Pray that we can complete the Sidama and Tigrigna translation projects, and ask for funds for the Amharic Study Bible project and various Old Testament projects.
Give thanks to God for providing his Word to the Bible-hungry people of Myanmar. Rejoice with us at the publication of the first Bible in Lacid last year. This year, we are running a yearlong nationwide Bible reading and prayer program — please pray that this will be a blessing. Please also pray that justice, peace and freedom prevail in Myanmar.
Give thanks for the work we have been able to start in Jenin. It is such a blessing to reach out to new areas. Please pray for protection and wisdom for our staff, and for our projects to have a greater impact on individuals and communities. Please pray for a spirit of unity and cooperation as our staff and volunteers work together, and for our finances.
Concerning the aggression in Syria, the main bookshop in Damascus is open most days when possible. And although the resource center is ready to host young people now, it is closed until further notice. Please continue to pray for the safety and wellbeing of our staff. We are in contact with our staff team in Syria almost daily. They are all fine and safe so far.
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.
Help us share God's Word where needed most.
