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 with Bible Society of Ghana as they celebrate their Golden Jubilee this year; their Bible House opened its doors in 1965. Please also pray that the local economy would grow and that God’s Word would spread in Ghana.
The small nation of Guyana has the highest suicide rate in the world (almost three times the world average), but almost no mental health professionals to combat the problem. Pray that God’s Word will vanquish this growing darkness, especially through the labors of Suriname Bible Society in Guyana and through Bible resources recently produced for women, children, the elderly and prisoners.
Pray that Haitian Bible Society will continue to enjoy a broad distribution of Scripture and healthy relationships with local churches. Please also pray that recently elected officials will put a stop to growing violence and crime in Haiti.
Praise God that one year ago, 750,000 copies of Luke’s Gospel were distributed at the Commonwealth Games. This is the equivalent of 30 percent of all Scottish homes. Pray that the power of these Scripture resources would continue to take root in families across Scotland.
Please continue to pray for relief work in Nepal as the country rebuilds from the two devastating earthquakes that struck in early 2015. Pray for General Secretary Tej Jirel as he leads the Nepal Bible Society staff and family through this difficult time.
Please say a prayer for the 2015 elections in Guatemala. Bible Society of Guatemala is praying for leaders who fear God, depart from corruption and support their translation of the Bible into the Achi and Pocomchi languages.
