Little to No Access to Scripture!

Lord Close the Gap blog post picture

The prayer need. . .

Little to no access to the Scriptures for far too many peoples of the world. We acknowledge the reality of. . . 7102 languages in the world, yet only 664 have a full complete Bible. – 4.2.20 Foundation

Father, we pray for You to close the gap in the area of peoples (5.7 Billion) of the world of which 2/3 are oral, who have limited to no access to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through His Word in a way they can really understand!

Far too many have little to no access to the Scriptures or who are in fact Bible-less Peoples.

We link together in prayer for the completion of Scripture for all languages in our lifetime.

We are praying for the innovative ways You are bringing, to make the reality of Revelation 5:9 & 7:9 possible.

We believe for the “more” of Ephesians 3:20 and trust You to bring it to pass. Draw Your Bride to step fully into John 17:20-23 as we collaborate together in prayer and missions. Make us one, Lord!

We pray in unity. . . Luke 10:2 & Matthew 9:37-38, we pray Lord of the Harvest, SEND Your laborers into Your harvest field. In Jesus name. Amen

We join together to echo Your Son’s Request TO ASK: He was saying to them, “The harvest is abundant [for there are many who need to hear the good news about salvation], but the workers [those available to proclaim the message of salvation] are few. Therefore, [prayerfully] ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”

We invite you each Thursday at 2pm (EDT):

The Worldwide Status of Bible Translation (Wycliffe 2017):

  • More than 1,400 languages have access to the New Testament and some portions of Scripture in their language.
  • More than 600 languages have the complete translated Bible.
  • About 7,000 languages are known to be in use today.
  • Up to 160 million people need Bible translation to begin in their language.
  • More than 1,600 languages* still need a Bible translation project to begin.
    *Does not include sign languages

Stats from Davar Partner (Specializing in bringing the Old Testament into every recording)

Reports a total of 714 full complete Bibles available around the globe – only 636 languages have a text translation of the complete Bible and only 78 audio full versions exist.

2.7 BILLION PEOPLE remain without access to the Full Bible and 350 MILLION PEOPLE are without a single verse of scripture in their primary language. Of the 7,097 living languages, only 636 languages have a text translation of the complete Bible, and only 78 audio versions exist. Sobered by this reality and strengthened by His grace, we press on to make audio Bibles available to people of every tongue.

From our Friends at The Seed Company
OVER ONE BILLION PEOPLE ARE STILL BIBLE-LESS.  Take a moment to let that sink in. #ENDBIBLEPOVERTY

1002 UUPGs with NO WRITTEN SCRIPTURE          1,653 UUPGs with NO ORAL SCRIPTURES

United in Prayer. . . Lord, close the gap, bring Your Word to the Every & All across the globe. We unite in the prayer of Luke 10:2. In Jesus name. Amen
