Wycliffe USA is halfway through their celebration of 30 years of prayer of the Bibleless Peoples Prayer Project on their Prayer Blog and I am in awe when I see what God does when His people pray.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
Today’s story was about a young girl who imagined big and started praying for the Konai of Papua New Guinea when she was 4. At that time in 2002 the Konai were still waiting for God’s Word so Karen began to pray because, “I think it’s important for everyone to have the chance to have the Gospel and know about Jesus and what he did for them,” Karen said.
Ten years later this young girl is looking forward to 2015 when the Konai New Testament is scheduled to be completed and she is hoping to make the trip to Papua New Guinea to celebrate with them the dedication of their New Testament.
I have no idea where the workers are going to come from to complete the remaining 80 languages in Cameroon that have yet to be started, but God does. It’s my job to pray, I’m imagining big because I know that we have a big God and it’s His power that is at work within us.
Will you join with me in prayer?
God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Ephesians 3:20-21 MSG
We are praying – for you, and for persons to be open to God’s call to complete the task. If it were easy, we wouldn’t need Him!
