Pray Around the World

'But we will continue to devote ourselves steadfastly to prayer and the ministry of the Word.' Acts 6:4 (AMP)

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.


Please pray for our new General Secretary and ask the Holy Spirit to guide him. Ask God to bless our efforts to reach many thousands of Christians through our FCBH® and literacy programs. We plan to distribute 3,500 Bibles through our projects among children and young people. Please pray that they come to worship Jesus as the real hero in their lives. Your prayers can make a real difference.

Costa Rica

We thank the Lord for the unfailing support, which allows us to serve the country with the Word of God. Pray for the project Building a Culture of Peace to continue changing lives, and for the project A Bible in Every Home, that it may be run in partnership with Youth With A Mission. May the Lord use these projects to transform the life of this country.

Cote d'Ivoire

Pray for political stability so that we can carry out Bible work across the whole country. Give thanks for good progress with our translation projects, asking that this will continue. Pray for our distribution teams working in difficult circumstances and pray for the implementation of our plans to construct a national headquarters.


Praise God for his continued mercy on Lebanon. Pray for the success of our distribution and Bible engagement programs with Catholics, who declared 2012 Year of the Bible. Please pray for our Gospel programs for children, particularly the refurbished Bible World as it hosts thousands more, challenging them to appreciate God's Word. Pray too for our youth activities and resource centre and for our continued advocacy through public and community programs.


Please pray that God's Word becomes the source of life and wisdom for everyone in Poland. We are thankful for the dedication of our small staff and for God's care for us, especially when we face difficulties. Give thanks for the ecumenical Bible translation project, for our ecumenical Bible days, and for our work to bring the Good News to young people, prisoners and people in need. We are very grateful for everyone who has supported our work.


Praise God for the launch of Proclaimer Audio scripture units in Serreer and Puular and for the lives that have been changed as a result. Give thanks also for the arrival of New Testaments for non-Christian Senegalese and for progress in our literacy work. Ask for God's support for our new projects and pray for the launch of the Serreer Noon New Testament.

South Africa

Thank God for the dynamic growth of Bible work. Praise him for the launch of the complete Southern Ndebele Bible towards the end of the year. Pray for every speaker who will receive the Bible in his or her heart language for the first time. Pray also for our Afrikaans and Zulu Bible translation projects and for the English Bible for the deaf project. Thank God for enabling us to make the Bible available for cell phones and as e-Bibles.
