Imagine a life without prayer… A life without hope, without comfort, without communication between you and the all-powerful, all-knowing, timeless Father. A Father who loves you unconditionally. A Father who wants to make all things work together for your good. Deaf Bible Society is inviting you on a 50-Day Prayer Journey, but before we tell you how you can join the Journey, we would like you to ask yourself. What does prayer look like for you? What does prayer mean to you?…
Katie woke up at 5:30 am, and immediately began making mental notes of all things she needed to do that day: make lunches for the kids, an important meeting at work, call the doctor to make an appointment, don’t forget to pay the electric bill, oh, and the kids have soccer practice on Wednesday’s after school. “Lord, please get me through this day,” Katie prayed silently to herself.
Later that day, Katie got a call from school, her son is sick. “Oh no, the important meeting today,” Katie thought to herself. “I’m going to have to reschedule.” Katie left work to go pick up her sick child to take her son to the doctor. “Lord, please help my boss to understand.”
A few hours later, Katie got an email stating that her check had bounced for the electric bill. “Perfect!” Katie thought, “just one of those days.” As a single mom, Katie had been struggling to make ends meet each month. She knew she would get paid this Friday, and was hoping the electric company would wait till then to cash the check. “Lord, I just can’t do all this alone. I need Your help. My family needs You. Please help us get through this short season.”
Prayer – the way we personally and directly communicate with our heavenly Father. Life was never intended to be done alone. We serve a loving Father who is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. His character never changes. He is waiting for you to talk to him and to tell him what you are struggling with, so that he can offer help, love, comfort, and support. 1 John 5:14 tells us that, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”
Did you know that 70 million people in the world use sign language to communicate on a daily basis and understand most clearly? Of those 70 million, 80% do not have a sufficient formal education available to them and, therefore, cannot understand the written Bible. . That means that, 95% of Deaf people do not have a Bible in their sign language.
Here at Deaf Bible Society we wholeheartedly believe in the power of prayer. That is why we are beginning a 50-Day Prayer Journey, from Easter to Pentecost, to pray for one of the largest unreached people groups. We are asking your help, in joining us to pray for people who have a life without prayer. To sign up, text PRAY to 444999.
We look forward to praying together with you.
