This prayer for October is for our Mission of the Month, the Bible Society, chosen by June Woodland, who is the church representative for this Mission of the Month:
Wonder-speaking God, you created all there is by the power of your word.
We thank you for the Scriptures that give us the wisdom bringing us to salvation through Jesus Christ, and that teach, train and correct us. We pray for all involved in the translation, distribution and production of the Bible worldwide, and for all who help people understand and live by it. Lord, so shape your people by your word that we will bring life and hope to all around us through Jesus, your living Word. We ask this for your glory, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
