Reaching the Nations:

One of the core distinctives of the ministry is delivering the gospel on film to people in languages and formats that they most easily can understand. This month, please pray for the translation and dubbing of JESUS into additional languages so more people can be reached in 2017. 

January 2017 Prayer Requests

-

"Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."  (Joshua 1:9, New American Standard Bible). 

1.      Pray for the work on special adaptations of JESUS for use with the deaf and blind:

  • The sign language adaptations of JESUS bring the story of Christ to life for the hearing impaired. Pray for the work this month on the Persian Sign Language version of JESUS; this will be used by partner organizations working both in and outside of Iran.
  • Audio-drama adaptations of JESUS are effective in telling the gospel story to the blind. Currently, the audio version of the film is being used in 430 languages. Through digital distribution and radio, the blind—
    and many others—are hearing the “greatest story ever told.” Pray for ears to hear and hearts to respond across the globe.

2.     Pray for the work of recording smaller languages (less than 50,000 speakers) by partner ministries, Renew World Outreach’s “Aurora Project” and Youth With A Mission. Ask the Lord to bless their efforts to produce new languages of JESUS for unreached people in South America, Southeast Asia and worldwide.

3.     Pray for the opening of a recording center in Indonesia this month. Our partner, Snap Dragon, will direct the operation with plans to produce an estimated 50 new language versions of JESUS in the next couple of years.

4.     Pray for the continued need to add recordists to join our dubbing travel teams. Ask God to provide at least eight more recording staff members who can go through training in March and begin traveling in April.

In Addition:

Praise God with us for the funds that He provided throughout 2016, and especially at the end of the year! More people can now be reached because of the generosity of many friends like you. More languages will be recorded; more teams will be equipped and sent out, and more new churches will be planted.

Please Pray For:

  • Fruitful results from January efforts to add new monthly financial partners to underwrite the work of church-planting and partner film teams. Pray that the Holy Spirit will touch hearts and prompt hundreds of friends to become regular investors in helping to reach men, women and children for Christ across the globe.
  • The enlistment of friends of the ministry, new and old, to attend the upcoming briefing in Orlando, Florida, March 9-12. Pray that God will prompt those to join us whom He has prepared for greater involvement. Pray His Spirit will move in and through the weekend.
  • The Lord to continue to give insights into ways to acquire new financial partners online and through other avenues. Pray for breakthroughs using the internet, video and social media. Pray for more stories from the field that can help cast vision and stir hearts to invest in global evangelism and church-planting.
  • Work to resume on a digital story and prayer guide: “Power of Jesus.” It will include 30 stories with relevant regional and national prayer requests.
