Seven days of prayer: More Africa!

January 7th, 2017 by Camilla

Prayers for 8 – 14 January

  • Pray for the Scripture songwriting workshop in the Saafi-Saafi language in Senegal that begins today. Pray that God will inspire the songwriters involved and the songs they write will draw many people to Christ.
  • Pray for the project management workshop beginning in Jos, Nigeria today. Ask God to guide the course teachers and participants.
  • Pray for the training sessions that are currently being held amongst the Oniyan speaking community in Senegal for potential facilitators of listening groups that will meet to listen to a portion of Genesis each week. Pray that they would be excited at the prospect of members of their communities meeting together to listen to God’s word, and for the provision of materials so these groups can get underway immediately. The hope is that once they have finished listening through Genesis, they will transition into listening to the New Testament.
  • tcnn-img_8252Pray for the linguistics and translation students of TCNN (Theological College of Northern Nigeria) as they begin their fieldwork this term. Ask God to guide each one on the field and give them wisdom and understanding. Pray also for spiritual and physical protection and good connections with people in the language communities. Ask God also for wisdom for those advising and teaching the students in this process.
  • Pray for safe travel for Sam, Carwyn and Stewart of the church engagement team as they leave today to spend two weeks visiting the work of Wycliffe Bible Translators in the Philippines.
  • Pray for those leading and for all those who come to find out more about Wycliffe at First Steps tonight at All Souls Clubhouse, London.
  • Pray for the launch of the Nyole New Testament in Uganda today. Pray that it will be a day of great joy and celebration and that the Nyole New Testament will impact many lives. Thank God for the UK churches that have supported this project through Wycliffe Projects.
