“I’ve never read the Bible. Please help me!”

Listen E-Mail Forward

World Prayer Team—as you pray for people around the world, remember that some people don’t know how to begin a relationship with God. Thru the Bible brings a message they’ve never heard before.

Pray for this young woman in Torre del Mar, Spain, and the many more like her. She writes,

“I have been listening to your program only a few days. I admit that it has made a great impact on me. I’m so moved by it that I even dared to phone you. I have never done so before. Could I ask for the Gospel of John you offered, please? I have never read the Bible. Thank you for this good work.”

Today, ask God to open the eyes of the seeker to the truth of His Word.

Come with us next week as we marvel at God’s work in India and Nepal.

Back on the air in Germany

Listen E-Mail Forward

For several years, the voice of Thru the Bible was silent in Germany. We were off the air. But thanks to the prayers of God’s faithful warriors, the newly-produced German programs are back on the air.

Already we’re hearing of God’s work in Germans’ lives.

A listener in central Germany writes:

“We praise God for all He is doing in our country. May He use your program to bring great harvest for eternity. It is a joy for us to encourage you to continue this good work. We are heartily bound together in the love of Jesus.”

Today, our prayer is that you also would be encouraged to continue in the good work of prayer. Your prayers are bringing spiritual fruit around the world.

Tomorrow we will pray for beautiful Spain.

Satisfied with God

Listen E-Mail Forward

No matter where you live, your economic condition, your race, age, or disposition—we all share this truth: When we seek God, we will find Him. And when we walk with God, we will be satisfied by Him.

A wonderful sister in Portugal identifies with this truth. She writes,

“I would like to register our satisfaction. We are richly blessed by God in Portugal. Spiritual initiatives are bearing fruits. We raise the mornings with the sound of your radio to play the Word of God, bringing courage and strength. Praise the Lord. May He bless you abundantly in Christ Jesus.”

Pray that this spiritual blessing in Portugal continues as people there walk with God. May you, too, be blessed as you pray in faith for these precious followers of God today.

Tomorrow our team travels to lovely Germany.

Growing closer to God

Listen E-Mail Forward

“You can’t imagine what God did with my life.”

That’s the great testimony we hear today from a friend in Porto, Portugal. The letter continues,

“I am 30 years old and I listen to your program every day. I have followed God since I was young, but I didn’t know much about Him. For many years, I made bad choices. I was violent . . . not eating . . . not interested in life. But one year ago I began listening to your program and everything has been different….Thank you for the extra strength you have lent me and for helping me to grow closer to God, my friend!”

And we will add . . . thank you, Prayer Team, for interceding on behalf of friends like this all over the world.

Travel the world with us, praying as we go.

Bridging the generation gap

Listen E-Mail Forward

Every so often a listener’s testimony really takes us by surprise. . . . Like this one from a dear gentleman from Switzerland.

He writes in Italian:

“I am very old and live in the mountains. I listen every day to your program on the internet and download what I find on the website to my phone. Last year I downloaded Ruth to Philippians and wrote on my blog what I learned from each day’s study.”

Did you see that one coming? Pray for those like this man who are from a different generation to have the creativity and passion to engage with God’s Word and with others. And remember that two of the most precious resources you can share are your time and your prayers.

We continue praying our way through Europe tomorrow with a stop in Portugal.

“How shall they hear without a preacher?”

Listen E-Mail Forward

In Romans 10:14 we are charged to share the gospel with these simple words, “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?”

Welcome to Myanmar, where the name of Jesus is reaching millions through the distribution of solar-powered radios.

“We learn by hearing, not by reading,” says one Thru the Bible listener.

Another adds, “We can hear you anywhere, even in places where you don’t have electricity. Many of us have accepted Christ!”

In another village, an elderly gentleman tells us, “In our remote village you are our church.”

Praise God! Today, let’s ask Him to continue to bless the teaching of His Word so that more people will hear of Jesus and believe.

Join us tomorrow as we pray for the Hmong people.

Rejoicing with pastors in Vietnam

Listen E-Mail Forward

As one of the last remaining communist countries, Vietnam is a dangerous place for those who teach the gospel.

Thanks for joining us today as we stop to pray for Thru the Bible’s Vietnamese producer, Tin Van Pham, and those he partners with to share God’s Word. Despite the personal risks, these saints are sharing God’s Word and seeing results! Rejoice with us over this letter from a pastor who recently wrote:

“I’m seeing miracles in the lives of those who attend isolated churches. Though no roads can reach them and many do not have electricity, our brothers and sisters are listening to God’s Word and it is changing their lives! Numerous families report that they have turned away from divorce, many have stopped their idol worship, and even more have accepted Christ for the first time!”

Praise God and keep and praying! Tomorrow we’re off to Myanmar.

Finding freedom in Christ

Listen E-Mail Forward

As our World Prayer journey touches down today in the country of Cambodia, let’s remember Isaiah 61:1 that says:

“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings [that is, the gospel] to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.”

Today it’s our privilege to intercede for the millions of Cambodians who are trapped in poverty and surrounded by spiritual darkness. Let’s pray that through the teaching of God’s Word on Thru the Bible more Cambodians will find the freedom offered only through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Tomorrow we travel to Vietnam.

Are you waiting on God?

Listen E-Mail Forward

Have you been praying for a while and waiting for God to answer?

Today on our World Prayer journey we travel to the beautiful country of the Philippines, where we meet with a man who listens in his native language of Ilocano. If you listen closely, you may identify with his struggles:

“Thank you very much for the Word of God you are preaching. I need encouragement on how to be happy despite my trials and unanswered prayers. Will you help me?”

Today let’s intercede for Christians in the Philippines – and all of us – who are looking for joy and strength from God. Remember the promise of Psalm 1, “Blessed is the man . . . [whose] delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night.”

Join us as we travel the world, praying country by country. Tomorrow we’re in Cambodia.

Pass it on!

Listen E-Mail Forward

“I am one of the people who found Christ through your program.”

Wow—what a great introduction! Let’s hear more from this listener in Hungary:

“A friend of mine told me about how she had found life inside the Bible. Here, in this city, many people have come to know God through your program. We’re always talking to others about how wonderful we discovered God to be in the pages of His Word. God bless you for praying for me and my friends and for opening this new world to us.”

Need a reason to keep praying, World Prayer Team? Just remember these wonderful people in Hungary who are so grateful for your prayers.

Join us next week as we travel on our knees to Southeast Asia!
