John and Lori’s prayer update – Wycliffe Day of Prayer

November 11, 2011

Wycliffe Day of Prayer 2011

Today is Wycliffe’s worldwide day of prayer.  This annual day of prayer serves as a corporate reminder of God’s hand in the past, present, and future of Bible translation. Today, Wycliffe staff working in almost 100 countries will stop their regular duties for the day and do the work of praying for Bibleless peoples and translation work in progress around the world. It’s also an occasion to praise God for blessing this time in history with what is now the greatest acceleration of Bible translation that the world has ever known.

We invite you to pray along with us for the large task that remains in Bible translation and in praising God for all He has accomplished for His glory through His Word. We’ll be posting a few requests on our blog throughout the day, and you can find prayer resources at http://www.wycliffe.org/DOP2011.aspx .

We’re especially praying for:

  • God to give Solomon Islanders a hunger for the Bible in their mother tongue
  • God to prepare people to help us learn the language and with translation
  • political stability and peace in the Solomon Islands, and a government open to translation work
  • unity among the people, churches, and organizations working on translation in the Solomons
  • translation work to begin in the over 2,000 languages that don’t yet have a verse of the Bible

And a few requests from our personal life:

  • for God to open up the doors for us to go to the Solomons this coming spring
  • that we would let God direct our schedule as we work and prepare
  • for God to use this time to prepare us emotionally and spiritually for being overseas
  • for God to use us when we speak at church events Nov. 13 and 16

“Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we ask you to pray for us. Pray that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes, just as when it came to you.” (2 Thessalonians 3:1, NLT).

We are thankful for your partnership in our work through your prayers!
John, Lori, and Little D
