Working with over 1400 global partners, we serve the local church by providing training, consulting, funding, and project management that leads to a meaningful, accurate translation in the local mother tongue. Thousands of prayer partners provide a solid foundation for the work. With over 2100 language groups without a single verse of Scripture, we invite you to join us to end Bible poverty, now!

Prov 4:4-5 GWT Cling to my words wholeheartedly. Obey my commands so that you may live. Acquire wisdom. Acquire understanding. Do not forget. Do not turn away from the words that I have spoken.

Isa 55:10, 11 NLT 

10“The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer

and bread for the hungry.

11It is the same with My Word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit.

It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.

Heavenly Father, 

Please send out Your Word all over the world and let it prosper wherever You send it. We especially pray for those who do not have even a single Bible verse in their own language. Please provide for them.

You Word is life and peace and joy. 

We thank You for the Bible. 

In the Name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Please Heavenly Father,

We pray for those who do not have Bibles in their own language. Give them Your Word, even if only strategic verses until they can have the whole Bible. 

We pray for those who do not have Bibles. Please provide for them.

We pray for those who have Bibles but do not read them. Give them a hunger and thirst for Your Word.

We pray for those who read but don't understand Your Word. Please give them understanding.

We pray for those who read but don't obey Your Word. All of us do this at times - please forgive us and give us the willingness to follow through with constant obedience, the best we can, with the help of Your Holy Spirit.

Thank You in the Name of Your beloved Son Jesus Christ, who is the Word. Amen.

Col 3:16 ESV Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.

The Seed Company's prayer for Bible translators from their Prayer Guide p19:

Almighty Father God,
You are a refuge and a fortress, a strong tower into which
your people can run. Spread your protection over the translators
and their families so that those who love your name may
rejoice in you. For those who don’t yet know you, we pray that
your living and active Word will convict their hearts so that
the veil is lifted from their spiritual eyes. Give them a new
song so that many will put their trust in you. We pray that,
even in the midst of trials, it will be clear to the translators and
their families that you go before them, and you follow them.
May they see how you have worked all things together for
the good of those who love you and are called according to
your purposes. Remind them that you are sovereign over all
creation, and you will be faithful to complete the good work
you start. Help them to fix their eyes on you, the author and
perfecter of faith. You give grace to the weary and increase
the power of the weak. Remind them to turn to you when
they are weary. When they stumble, you renew their strength.
Not only that, but because you are their hope, they can soar on
wings like eagles! Thank you that it is not by human strength,
nor human power, that this work will be accomplished, but
by your Spirit.
In Jesus’ Name,

The Seed Company's prayer for Bible translators from their Prayer Guide pp 23, 25:

Join the Spirit of God in praying His will for His people (Rom. 8:27) so that:

Each team member will recognize and embrace a spirit of collaboration.

Translators’ communication will remain open and clear so no misunderstandings have a chance to grow into resentment.

All will act humbly, resolve conflicts quickly, and recommit their focus on God’s
bigger picture for the work.

New translation teams will receive all the training they need.

Translators will gain a better understanding of their language as well as translation principles.

Unity in Your Spirit will overcome any previous biases that would otherwise threaten the work.

Please God, in the Name of Jesus Christ we pray. Thank You, amen.

The Seed Company's prayer for Bible translators from their Prayer Guide pp 27, 29:

Join the Spirit of God in praying His will for His people (Rom. 8:27) so that:

• Translators will rely on God for wisdom and patience as they work to produce
understandable Scripture.
• Translation consultants will be readily available for guidance and direction.
• The Lord’s favor will rest on all involved.

• Translation teams will understand the community’s comments and use them to edit their drafts wisely.
• More consultants will be identified and trained.
• All consultants serving around the world will review drafted translations through
the eyes of the Lord, spotting phrases or verses that need to be reworked.

Please God, in the Name of Jesus Christ we pray.

Thank You, Lord.


The Seed Company's prayer for Bible translators from their Prayer Guide p31:

Father in Heaven,

Through your Word, we know that you have made the world and everything in it. From one man, you made all the nations, and you marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. You created us not because you need us, but because you want us.

You have always loved us with an everlasting love. While we were still dead in sin, you sent your Son to die in our place, to restore us to a right relationship with you where nothing can separate us from your love.

Your Word also tells us that your desire is for everyone to seek you and be found by you—to place their trust in your Son as Lord and Savior. Many are still waiting to meet you through your Word, and we know you long to gather your children together.

Establish the work of our hands—this work of supporting the translation of your Word so that all will have seen and heard of your great love. You invite us into your plans for such a time as this.

As you bring national translators, consultants, churches, and local organizations together, cover them and their work with your favor as with a shield. Order each team’s steps, protect them from dissention, and show them daily that all your promises find their “Yes” in Jesus! Remind them that your Spirit will enable them to follow in Christ’s footsteps—to proclaim good news to the poor, liberty to the captives, sight to the blind, and freedom to those who are oppressed.

Equip them for every good work that you’ve planned in advance for them to do. Give them your vision for your people, and the wisdom to rightly handle your Word of truth, in the medium that best suits the culture.

Thank you that your perfect love casts out fear, your eyes never close in sleep, and your heart always pursues the one who is lost. Anoint your translators to deliver your Word, to be the feet of those who bring good news!

In Jesus’ Name,

Scriptures referenced: Est. 4:14; Ps. 5:12, 90:17, 119:133, 121:4; Prov. 10:12; Isa. 61:1; Jer. 31:3; Matt. 23:37;

The Seed Company's prayer for Bible translators from their Prayer Guide p35, 37, 39, 41:

Join the Spirit of God in praying his will for his people (Rom. 8:27) so that:

• Nothing would hinder his perfect timing and plan for the introduction of his Word.
• Hearts would readily receive him as they understand his message of love, forgiveness, and grace in their heart language.

• God’s truth would spread as those who understand his Word proclaim the good news with others in their family and community.

• The community will eagerly receive the Scriptures.
• They will spend time in God’s Word daily.
• They will grow deep roots of faith as they apply it to their lives and share it with others.

• Community leaders and pastors will use the new Scriptures in their homes as
well as in their public ministries.
• Community members will readily embrace the Scriptures as God’s words to them.
• Individuals will exchange cultural lies and harmful habits for the new freedom in
Christ they’ve found through his Word.

• Churches will form quickly so that believers have a community of accountability and encouragement as they grow in faith.
• Pastors who have previously used the language of wider communication will
boldly use the mother tongue Scripture as they preach.
• Leaders and elders with wisdom will rise up in the new churches to provide the necessary guidance for many new believers. 

Please God! Thank You God!

The Seed Company's prayer for Bible translators from their Prayer Guide p43:

Lord of All,
We know that your Word is right and true, and you are faithful in all you do. Thank you that the translators do not have to lean on their own understanding to figure out how you will use your Word to accomplish your good purposes for it. They just need to hear your voice and walk in your way, trusting you daily because you appointed them to bear fruit that will last. You are strengthening them and helping them, upholding them with your righteous right hand.

As the translation teams humbly lay their work before you, may they trust in you alone for the increase! We know that your Word will not return void; it always accomplishes the purpose for which you send it. Remind them to confidently and boldly approach your throne, because when they ask according to your will, you hear them and will grant them what they have asked: your Word, in every heart language, so that none will perish and all will have the opportunity to receive you in faith.

Continue to protect and bless those who are sharing your Light, your Word.

May the multitude of those who know you—from every nation, tribe, people, and language—be too numerous to count because they have your Word that leads to salvation, guidance, wisdom, freedom, joy, and a peace that passes all understanding.
In Jesus’ Name,
