Ending Bible poverty by facilitating the translation of God's Word among minority language communities worldwide.


Give Thanks to the LORD

July - August 2017

We thank the Lord for you, our prayer team, and for the many prayers you have prayed on behalf of Wycliffe Canada over the years. I have enjoyed sharing information and prayer requests with you during the time I have served as editor of Prayer Alive since fall 2008.

We have now reached the point where Prayer Alive is transitioning from its current form that goes out every three months to a much shorter weekly email, which is now being developed. This new Prayer Alive will contain different types of content each week. These will include devotionals, prayer items from field projects, prayer requests from individual Wycliffe missionaries, and information that will encourage you to pray in different ways. All of this content will continue to help you be equipped as a “called” community of pray-ers with Wycliffe Canada and the Bible translation movement. Other writers will be joining me and sharing their expertise.

In this issue of Prayer Alive, you will be praying for people who serve in a wide variety of roles—people working with the Canada Institute of Linguistics (CanIL) where students are trained for linguistics work; new members who have just joined Wycliffe; and people involved in translation, member care, teaching, and international administration. All have vital roles to play in providing God’s translated Word for those who do not yet have it. Thanks for your prayers! Your prayers are making a difference.

"Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done." —Isaiah 12:4b NIV
