‘We need prayers, and constant prayers. That God will give the courage and the strength so that this work is done and the translation reaches the hands of the people for whom it is meant.’

When we ask Bible translation teams how people in the UK and Ireland can best support them, the first thing many of them say is:

Please pray for us. We need your prayers.

So please join us in praying for Bible translation teams around the world – many of whom face opposition to their work.

To help you pray you can get the Wycliffe daily Prayer diary, along with our Words for Life magazine, or see prayer points on our social media. Or join the urgent prayer group, or explore our small group and devotional resources.

Thank you so much for praying, your prayers make a huge difference!
