‘Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.’
Ps 118.1 (NIV)

God stoops down to listen to us (Ps 116.2). Isn’t he amazing! He loves to answer our prayers. This month we celebrate how God has answered our prayers in the past six months. Thank you for being faithful in prayer!

Together in Christ,

The Prayer Words Team

22. Kon* in Asia: Thank the Lord that Wycliffe Australia members returned to the field earlier this year. In answer to prayer, they and the Kon* translation team have re-established an effective working rhythm.

23. Kon*: Getting together in person has been a real joy for all the translation team! The team has also been greatly encouraged recently while checking Galatians together. Praise God!

24. Kon*:  Pray for ongoing good progress for the translation team as they finalise revisions of Luke and John, facilitate a wider community check of 1 Thessalonians and finish the team check of Romans.

25. Kon*: Thank God for the growth in confidence, skill and spiritual maturity of the new translator, Pan*. She is good at making the translation clearer and often shares how the translated passage speaks into her own life. She is a great encouragement.

26. Kon*: Give thanks to God with us for the good dynamics between the translation team and the Scripture engagement team. Thank God that the tensions noticed a year ago seem to be resolving. There are still differences in style preferences, but the team is finding compromises that work.

27. Kon*: Pray for the translation team and the Scripture engagement team as they revise Luke and then John together. Ask God for wisdom and that they all find time to work together. (James 1.5)

28. Kwara’ae in Solomon Islands: Give thanks for Joash and Annie who are leading the Kwara’ae team while Andrew and Hilda are on home assignment in Australia. Thank God for their commitment, character and skills. Pray for God’s protection and provision over them, their family and their ministries.

29. Kwara’ae: Annie has been working diligently to translate Jonah, Ruth and Esther into Kwara’ae, even though the team is still waiting for funding to be approved. Thank God for how he has been supplying for her family’s needs.

30. Kwara’ae: We grieve the loss of Sammy who died at 21 years of age, just eighteen months after joining the Kwara’ae team. Pray for God’s comfort, provision and wisdom for Mulberry, his young widow.

* Names have been disguised to protect those involved.

Thanks for your patience...

Waiting is hard, isn't it. But imagine waiting 2000 years for Scripture in your language! Thanks for your patience. And thanks for your generous support which will help bring the long wait to an end...
