An Invitation to Pray
"I prayed,' God, I don't know how you're going to do it. It looks humanly impossible. I can't conceive how it'll ever get done, but you're the God of the impossible.' "
--George Cowan, Wycliffe Bible Translators president emeritus
God delights in hearing our prayers, because He is the God of the impossible. When we believe that, it’s easy to understand how our prayers have a strategic purpose in the work of Bible translation. We invite you to join us in praising His name and seeking His provision.
We have several tools to help you pray for specific needs:
