Prayer Watch: Computer Tablets Help Bible Translators

 

Today, we read in Ephesians 6 that we are tasked with a command: Always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit
in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. 
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,
may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ."
Ephesians 3:16-18 (NIV) 

"And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. 
With this in mind, be alert 
and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people."
Ephesians 6:18–20 (NIV)

 

“The Lord’s people” include the millions whose heart language is one of the thousands of languages still waiting for God’s Word to be translated.

So many have waited in desperation—for generations—just to read God’s Word in their own language. Day after day, believers in one language group after another reach out to Wycliffe Associates with urgent pleas for Bible translation.

Please pray for these believers, the Lord’s people, who are pleading for help to translate Scripture into their heart language.

“God Is With Us Today and Every Day.”

Despite persecution, Pastor A and his congregation are pushing forward with MAST workshops, translating God’s Word.

Your prayers and support are releasing resources and impacting national translators like Pastor A,* who live in some of the most persecuted areas of the world.

“All that we had inside the church—they took them out and they burned them,” said Pastor A. His church has gotten off relatively easy compared to other troubled countries in West Africa. Throughout the region, the majority religion has been targeting Christian churches, burning their belongings and their property to the ground.

Prayer Watch: Pray for the Persecuted Church

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of

prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” Ephesians 6:18 (NIV)

Did you hear? A young man is about to be beheaded in the Middle East! A few years ago, he was preparing to attend college but was taken prisoner and charged with participating in political protests. Just recently he was sentenced and transferred to the prison where executions are routine for violations against the strict government of his country!

Am I shocked? At first, yes. I am really saddened. As my tears fall, this young man’s plight reminds me of those in similar situations for a different reason—their faith in God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ.

This is the arena where Scripture is being translated into the local languages and the gospel is being shared. Believers, Bible translators, young and old, are being imprisoned and killed.

Making a Father's Day

Kali* wasn’t sure what he believed. As a teenager fresh out of high school, he was more concerned with finding a job than spiritual matters. So when his dad invited him to come along to a two-week MAST (Mobilized Assistance Supporting Translation) workshop and help translate the Scriptures, let’s just say that Kali was less than enthusiastic. Not one to give up easily, his father pled with him, saying, “Just come, there is a salvation out there.”

After much hesitation, Kali agreed to go—dragging his feet every step of the way. But once the workshop got underway and he came face-to-face with God’s Word, Kali’s attitude began to miraculously shift.
