Extreme Strategic Prayer Requests
- May we and our partners see churches with Scripture transforming every language community on Earth by 2050.
- “Enable your servants to speak your Word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus” (Acts 4:29-30). Empower us, Lord, to help more people decide to follow Jesus, get baptized, and gather into churches.
- Please help our team have perfect unity and growing ethnic diversity so that the world may believe that Jesus is for everyone.
- Help us in the ETEN Impact Alliance translate full Bibles in all the languages over 500,000 speakers by 2033.
- Help us in the ETEN Impact Alliance translate New Testaments for every language over 5,000 speakers by 2033 and portions in every viable language with fewer than 5,000 speakers by 2033.
So Jesus answered them, “Trust God! I’m telling you absolutely that if you say to this mountain, ‘May God pick you up and toss you into the ocean,’ and if you aren’t a skeptic in your heart but rather you trust that what you say will happen, then it will.” – Mark 11:22-23
Pray that God will move these mountains so that we will see churches using Scripture to grow, mature, and multiply in every language on Earth by 2050:
