"Can I Really Have My Own Bible?"

[236] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Christian couple with new Bibles.

A Christian couple were recently blessed by receiving Bibles. After VOM workers placed Bibles and Christian literature in the backseat of a taxi, the taxi driver distributed them to the believers in his small group. When the driver called to express his gratitude for the Bibles, his wife also got on the phone and said, “Can I really have my own Bible?” She had never had a personal copy of God’s Word. “I just want to be sure this Bible is mine,” she said. “I always prayed that I would have my own Bible. I’m happy that God heard my prayer.” Pray for these believers to grow in their faith as they study the Scriptures, and pray for more opportunities to deliver Bibles to those hungry for God’s Word inside Iran.

  • Thank You, Jesus, for our sister's desire for the Word; may our love for it intensify as well! Lord, make a way for more Bibles to pour into lands of persecution, that our brothers and sisters may be strengthened by Your Spirit's instruction through it. Protect them as Bibles are distributed and show them ways to pass them along to other believers too.
