Answered Prayer! Thousands of African Women Strengthened Through New Bible
Praise God for his Word that is providing hope and encouragement to women in Africa.
Thank you for praying that African women will encounter God through the new African Women Devotional Bible.
The African Women Devotional Bible, a collaborative project of twenty-five Bible Societies in Africa, was created to help women in Africa find answers for the unique circumstances and questions they face as African Christian women.
Since its launch in 2021, more than 20,000 copies of the African Women Devotional Bible, currently available in English, have been distributed to women in 15 African nations.
And God is touching the hearts of these women through his Word!
One woman who helped bring this Bible to life said, “I have a greater attachment to this Bible because it speaks to my areas of need as a woman. The content, the examples, and the life experiences depicted in the Bible are about Africa. It is my ministry Bible now—I use it as my main Bible as I minister to others now.”
Thanks to God’s grace and your prayers, women across Africa have been able to deepen and enrich their study of God’s Word. But we can’t stop praying now!
How You Can Pray
American Bible Society and our Bible Society partners in Africa are committed to reaching as many women as possible with the life-changing message of the Bible.
But we can’t do this work without your prayers. Through your prayers we can access God’s infinite wisdom, solutions, and resources to share his Word.
Today, we invite you to join us as we pray for these specific needs.
- Pray for African women to be transformed by God’s Word. Pray that women across Africa will be encouraged through Scripture and that they will find hope, wisdom, and guidance for every situation they face.
- Pray for the successful release of the French and Portuguese translations of the African Women Devotional Bible. Pray that the French and Portuguese versions, expected to be available later in 2023, will reach thousands of women in another 18 African nations where those languages are spoken.
- Pray for those involved in the creation, translation, distribution, and publication of the African Women Devotional Bible. Ask God to guide and strengthen the 286 contributors who are collaborating to make the African Women Devotional Bible available to African women. Pray that there will be no obstacles to their work.
Thank you for praying! To purchase your own copy of the African Women Devotional Bible, go to Bibles.com.
