As we move into the last 90 days of 2017, we continue in our annual prayer initiative,
Bible in 90 Days Prayer Initiative
As we LISTEN, we PRAY:

- Praying for those working in Orality/UUPGs & Great Commission Partner groups
- Praying for the Bible-less around the globe
- Praying for Bible Translation groups who are working tirelessly to complete Scripture projects in every mother tongue.

What can we do?
This weekend and next weekend, individually and corporately, we will have the opportunity to join with millions of other believers around the world to lift up our persecuted family in prayer. The first two Sundays in November (11/5 and 11/12) have been designated as the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP 2017). Persecution Watch and Voice of the Persecuted, in collaboration with International Orality Network and other global ministries(TBA), will unite to host two 12-hour IDOP prayer conference calls for our persecuted family. This is your opportunity to come and pray and be the voice of the persecuted Church through those prayers. Please mark your calendar to stand in the gap and join the calls to lift-up our brothers and sisters suffering for Christ.
We believe prayer works. Stay on the call 5 minutes, 5 hours, or as long as you feel led. Your prayers make a huge difference in the lives of our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world.
Meet you on the call!

How do we make disciples without the Scripture, the Word of God???
How do we pray for these people groups?
How do we understand how they receive info?
For the past several years our ION Prayer Teams have taken the last three months of the year in united prayer as we listen to the Bible in Audio format, using the ear gate. Remembering all those who do not as yet, have the Scriptures in their heart language and mother tongue.
We are asking God to close the gap, for Scripture to be made available for every mother tongue and for Oral Bibles for every oral culture people group.
Praying for Oral Peoples & Oral Bible-les People Groups. Praying for those who are working in Orality around the globe.
Praying for us to understand how to pray more effective strategic informed prayers.
We are asking you to listen rather than read. Let God’s Word wash over you each day for 90 days. Listen in a different mode!
We are asking God to allow us to understand what it is like for oral peoples who sometimes prefer use the ear gate to receive information. For those who are blind, for those who are deaf and cannot hear in the way “we think of”, but who desperately are in need of His Scriptures. . . In a way they can really receive.
That looks differently for different peoples, but the reality is: 1671 people groups do not have ONE VERSE of Scripture and for the vast majority of the globe, they do not have access to the Word of God.
Only 8% of the world have the full Bible. (4.2.20 Foundation)
80% of the world’s population are oral preference learners – people who do not read, or prefer to learn by oral-visual means.
Bible in 90 Days – A different kind of prayer initiative
Praying & Washing in the Word Daily for the last three months of the year. ASKING for Scripture and Scripture Access to be available for the Every & All.
Asking the Lord, “Close the gap for there to be Scripture (FULL BIBLES) for everyone. Praying Luke 10:2 & Matthew 9:37-38, Send the laborers into His harvest fields.”
Praying for the Orality Network
We invite you to continue to pray each month for the Orality Network (ION) as God continues to grow us. Currently there are two additional Regions that are about to launch. As you pray, for informed intercession, you are invited to visit the Orality website and as you go through the different areas, please PRAY. See these few below that will help you to strategically pray for the way God is providing organization of the work. Thank you for linking and connecting in prayer.
- How is ION Organized?: https://orality.net/about/how-is-ion-organized/
- About Regions & Gateways: https://orality.net/about/how-is-ion-organized/regions-gateways/
- View all regions: https://orality.net/networks/regions/ (Note a new, interactive map has been added to this page)
- View all gateways: https://orality.net/networks/gateways/
This organizational model allows for everyone to find their place. It also allows for the different gateways and pathways to be accessed by individuals & organizations and agencies. Each one can find their function and are encouraged to work in more than one gateway if that if that is what God is calling them to in His work.
Praying alongside ION Partners
We continue to ask you to learn more about ION & its partners. To collaborate together and see God’s activity and join Him there, where ever possible.
Pray this month for ION Partners. So much is going on around the globe. So much that we can pray for and that others might connect to. Pray for more ION Partners to catch the opportunity to post their Orality Training and Orality Events directly to the ION Events Page.
Can we come to share with your group?
