Wycliffe Day of Prayer – part 3: praying for workers

November 11, 2011

Another topic of practical ideas for prayer: praying for people to be involved in the work of Bible translation.  The types of job skills involved in the task is much greater than the list below, but this is a start for praying.

(selected material from Wycliffe’s Day of Prayer 2011 webpage)

How To Pray For The Workers

“May Your ways be known throughout the earth, Your saving power among people everywhere”  (Ps. 67:2, NLT).

PRAY FOR PERSONNEL

“So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask Him to send more workers into His fields” (Matt 9:38, NLT).

LANGUAGE WORKERS

  • PRAY for more language workers to be called, trained, and sent.
  • PRAY that translation needs would be clearly identified through quality survey work.
  • PRAY that language workers would help develop writing systems for unwritten languages.

SUPPORT WORKERS

“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).

  • PRAY for more children’s education personnel (like teachers, administrators, and librarians).
  • PRAY for community development specialists as they help provide safe and economical transportation.
  • PRAY for technology workers who provide computer, email, radio, and satellite phone support.
  • PRAY for communication specialists (like writers, artists, and printers) as they inform prayer and financial partners about ongoing needs and the progress of translation work.
