Bible in 90 Days - A different kind of prayer initiative
Praying & Washing in the Word Daily for the last three months of the year. ASKING for Scripture and Scripture Access to be available for the Every & All.
Asking the Lord, "Close the gap for there to be Scripture (FULL BIBLES) for everyone. Praying Luke 10:2 & Matthew 9:37-38, Send the laborers into His harvest fields."
Bible in 90 Days – Prayer Initiative
How Many Bibles Do You Have?
Think about this. . .
How many Bibles do you have in your possession? Did you know that currently there are 1,778 languages that do not have ONE VERSE OF SCRIPTURE in their heart language! How can that be?!! Most of us reading this have the ENTIRE BIBLE ALL 66 BOOKS available as well as in different versions. Anytime we choose to, we are able to open our Bibles and take God’s Word into our hearts. Sadly that is not the case, around the globe.
Are you willing to try it?
Oct. 1st to Dec. 31st
Pray through the Bible in 90 Days. We are asking for our ION Prayer Partners to link in united prayer during this 90 day prayer initiative.
As we listen, we continue to focus our prayers toward those who do not have access to Scripture in their heart language or mother tongue.
Pick a language and just step into Bible Engagement each day for the next 90 days. While you are listening to the Word, remember to pray Matthew 9:35-38, The Lord of the Harvest Prayer.
Think about what it might be like to not have access to God's Word or NO SCRIPTURE. Pray for the 1,778 languages that have NO SCRIPTURE at this time.
Simply we are calling the intercessors and pray-ers to be intentional to begin to step into Scripture engagement in the form of listening to the Word of God daily. Don't get caught up in checking off the chapters. Just let the Word wash over you as you pray. Thinking about how hard it must be to be without the Scriptures. Praying for more Bible translations projects to be started to fill the gaps in Full Bibles, New Testament portions, Oral Scriptures/Oral Story Sets/Recordings, etc. and in small portions for the EVERY & ALL who still wait to hear. . . really hear in a way they can respond and receive the good news of God’s salvation through the gift of Christ Jesus.

As we continue to drill down in prayer for Oral & Oral Bible-less Peoples around the globe, focus in on praying for Scripture for the every and all, especially these oral culture peoples. Those who most probably have never had the opportunity to be involved in Scripture Engagement in any way. They will not fully be able to comprehend correctly when they read Scripture even in if it is in their own language, because they are Oral Peoples whose culture is not geared toward the receiving of information in a literate (letters to paper) way. It is an 18" issue - distance between the head and the heart.
WE MUST MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO BRING SCRIPTURE TO THE EVERY & ALL IN A WAY THEY CAN REALLY RECEIVE.
How do we make disciples without the Scripture, the Word of God???
How do we pray for these people groups?
How do we understand how they receive info?
For the past several years our ION Prayer Teams have taken the last three months of the year and prayed as they listened to the Bible in Audio format.
We are asking God for Oral Bibles for every oral culture people group.
Praying for Oral Peoples & Oral Bible-les People Groups. Praying for those who are working in Orality around the globe.
Praying for us to understand how to pray more effective strategic informed prayers.
We are asking you to listen rather than read.
We are asking God to allow us to understand what it is like for oral peoples who sometimes prefer use their ear gates to receive their information.
If you would prefer to use a chart, we have provided one below. We still would ask you to listen rather than read. We are asking God to allow us to understand what it is like for oral peoples who sometimes prefer use their ear gates to receive their information.
