 Why Prayer is Important

Your prayers are urgently needed to help end Bible poverty for language groups worldwide. Evangelist D.L. Moody once said, “Every work of God can be traced to some kneeling form.” Moody knew well the central role that prayer plays in God’s global mission: to redeem and renew the world, drawing mankind to Himself through Jesus Christ. Incredibly, the Lord gives His people the great privilege of participating in His mission, which includes Bible translation. One of the most important ways you can be involved is through prayer. Prayer is crucial for the emotional, spiritual and physical vitality of missionaries, who face:

  • Satan’s attacks
  • human rejection and opposition
  • religious and political obstacles
  • closed doors and hearts

Mission is fuelled by your prayers because the mission is God’s mission. You are simply asking Him to do what we know He wants to do—and to do it through you. Will you be part of God’s mission, as an intercessor for Bible translation?

How to pray

Like you and me, the people involved in Bible translation can grapple with discouragement, fear, frustration, loneliness and more. They need your prayers, as do the language communities they serve. To help guide your prayers, we’re pleased to provide the following resources. Be assured that God hears and responds to prayer. Your intercession makes a difference for eternity—for individuals, families and entire communities across the globe.
