The Latest Prayer Items

  • Follow Up

    The Aramaic Bible Translation (ABT) website received an email from a person who wanted an Assyrian New Testament. They explained that they had grown up in a Middle Eastern country and had come to faith in Christ three months earlier as a result of the witness of friends in Sydney. They concluded, “I'm so anxious and excited to get my Assyrian Bible!” The New Testament had just become available on Scripture Earth less than 30 minutes before. The timing was perfect! Please pray that Assyrians from around the world will continue to find and use these Scripture resources.

  • Nenets translation and recording plans

    This fall the Nenets Scripture engagement team*, in partnership with the local church, will distribute a package with both the written text and the audio recording of the gospel of John.

Pray for a good recording process by IBT and for full funding of this project. Pray that this Scripture will be widely distributed and speak truth to the hearts of the Nenets people.
