‘The latest Mag is the best you've ever produced, and that's saying something, as they are always excellent.’ – a reader from Surrey

Words for Life is the Wycliffe magazine and prayer diary, which contains the latest stories and prayer requests from around the world.

In it you can read about how God changes people’s lives as Scripture becomes available in their own languages, explore all the places and cultures where Wycliffe works, and discover more about all the different aspects of the work of Bible translation – and the impact that work has in peoples’ lives.

‘Just wanted to say how much I enjoy working through Words for Life. I may not pray exactly on the day you tell me to pray, but I get there! The entries are clear and fodder-providing. I particularly like the ones that include a bit of a Scripture.’ – Ian from Hampshire

There is a community of people in the UK and Ireland who pray regularly for the work of Bible translation. Many of them use the daily prayer diary in Words for Life to guide their prayers, and we love to add our voices to theirs as we pray together in the various Wycliffe offices.

We are so encouraged to hear how God answers prayers from previous editions and we love to praise him as we see different translation projects progressing and people growing in faith, beginning to follow Jesus and sharing the good news with those around them.

The latest edition

In this edition of Words for Life:

Wajid*, a Bible translator from South Asia, shares how God has brought him comfort in difficult times through the knowledge that he is part of an international Christian family.

Long-term Wycliffe supporter and trustee Roger Welch explains why Bible translation is so important to him.

We celebrate the acceleration of Bible translation in recent years – the whole Bible has now been translated into over 700 languages!

And as always, there is plenty to pray for in the daily prayer diary, which also includes opportunities to encourage Bible translation teams with your own messages.
