Bible Societies around the world are helping to spread God’s message of hope and love with those who need it mos . Here are prayer requests from a select group of Bible Societies that ask you to lift them up in prayer.
Please pray for the people of Iraq as ISIS, an extremistmilitant group, continues to make Iraq an incredibly dangerous place to live. Bible Societies in the Middle East are crying out to God for his love, peace and protection. Please pray for their continued labor to spread God’s Word in the midst of this hostile situation.
Please ask the Lord for spiritual healing in Cambodia as the people continue to experience trauma many years after the Khmer Rouge genocide, in which an estimated 1-3 million people were killed. To mark the 40th anniversary of the genocide, Bible Society in Cambodia recently held a traditional arts performance with the theme, “Forgiveness and Reconciliation.” Pray that Bible-based programs like this will continue to bring peace and healing to hurting people in Cambodia.
Ask for God’s blessing on Bible Society in Liberia as it finalizes arrangements for construction of its new Bible House in the capital city of Monrovia. Please pray that this process will go smoothly and that the new space will enable more effective Bible ministry throughout West Africa. Please also say a prayer for three new Bible translation projects that launched in Liberia this year.
Continue to thank God for the successful launch of a newly revised Bible translation in Hungary last year. Despite these successes, Hungarian Bible Society asks for continued prayer, as there is still much work to be done. Please pray that its publishing and advocacy projects will help this new Bible touch the hearts of its intended audience—students and young adults.
Please lift up a prayer for the more than 1 billion people living in India. It remains a country of starkly divided social classes; the rich, middle-class and poor all struggle with the realities of living in a patriarchal society. Bible Society of India continues to reach an incredibly diverse population with Scripture. Ask God to use his powerful Word to change lives in every corner of India.
On September 16, 2015, a strong earthquake measuring 8.4 on the Richter scale hit central and northern Chile. Cities located on the coast were also affected by a destructive tsunami. Please lift up Chilean Bible Society staff as they collect bottled water, cleaning products and Bibles to deliver to families affected by the earthquake and tsunami. Also ask the Lord to comfort the 10,000 people directly affected by this natural disaster.
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.
