Prayer for Wednesday, May 18


Disciples in the Global Community


God Who Forms, you are the One in whom we live and move and have our being. You are the One who sent your disciples to proclaim the arrival of your kingdom in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth. And you are the One who has allowed us to live in such a time that the ends of the earth are not nearly so far away as they once seemed. God we pray that we will be formed into people who are concerned and involved in your ministry of reconciliation wherever there are signs of alienation. You are the God Who Forms and we cry out to you with an intense hunger for your kingdom to not only advance but to fill and fulfill all corners of earth.

One very simple need for discipleship across the global community is the need for Bibles in native languages. There are ministries, such as Pioneer Bible Translators (www.pioneerbible.org) which are working to get Bibles into communities who are hungry for the Word. Check out PBT’s website and consider ways that you can encourage such ministries.
