Prayer for Wednesday 28th May 2014

Today from our church family we pray for Norman Luckett

We thank you Lord for the words in our Bible and the privilege to have our own copies and read them whenever we wish. May we be ever mindful of this precious gift and diligent in making the time to regularly read and reflect on their message and its relevance for our daily lives. We pray for the work of the Bible Society which exists because millions lack the Bible in a language they can understand, in a form they can use or at a price they can afford. For their endeavours working in partnership with 140 other national bible societies to supply translations for the 4,4000 languages that still wait for even one book of the bible, for bible formats for the deaf and blind and for their endeavour to help people to understand the bible’s value for them and their communities.  

“Wonder-speaking God, you created all there is by the power of your word and renew us daily by your life-giving Spirit. We give thanks for the Scriptures that give us the wisdom leading to salvation through Jesus Christ and that teach, train and correct us. We pray for all involved in the translation, distribution and production of the Bible worldwide, and for all who help people understand and live by it. Lord, so shape your people by your word that we will bring life and hope to all around us through Jesus, your  living Word. We ask this for your glory, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.” (The Bible Society) Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer
