Pray with us

Prayer changes the world. Bible translation and related ministries are God’s work and we want to be listening to Him and reflecting His heart of love for the people we serve. You can make a difference around the world by praying right here in New Zealand. Daily prayer points are listed on our Pray Today page.

Wycliffe relies on your prayers!

  • They enable us to do the work
  • They encourage us to persevere through the challenges
  • They keep us focussed and God-centred

You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us in answer to many prayers”   2 Corinthians 1:11.

Wycliffe regularly produces prayer resources to keep you informed and there are a number of ways you can be a part of our prayer team.

WIF (Wycliffe Intercessors Fellowship)

Prayer launched the work of Bible translation and continues to move it forward. Wycliffe Intercessors Fellowship (WIF) is a large group of family, friends and supporters who are committed to supporting Wycliffe’s ministry in prayer.   If you would like to be part of this vital ministry and receive our monthly prayer and praise update, please contact our office.

Get Connected…

Praying for Bibleless People Groups is a great way to start. You can join the Bibleless Peoples Prayer Project. WEC International lists regular prayer fuel, and the Joshua Project has lots of resources and information for Christians who have a particular unreached-peoples focus and want to connect with others of like mind.

Prayer Groups

There are also groups throughout New Zealand who meet regularly to share and pray for the needs of Wycliffe. Leaders of these prayer groups receive regular prayer and praise information to keep them up to date with the work and personnel of Wycliffe NZ. If you would like further information on the location of these groups, or how to go about forming one, again please contact us.

Pray for a specific member

Lord bless Charles… is an excellent guide to praying for people. Over 70 New Zealanders work with Wycliffe around the world. You can make a vital ongoing contribution to their ministry by joining the prayer support team of one of our members. You will receive periodic letters with news, prayer and praise information from that team to help you pray more effectively and may well have the opportunity to meet them when they are next home in New Zealand.

If you or your church would like to partner with a Wycliffe team member in this way, send an email to admin -at- wycliffenz -dot- org with the following information:

  • Your name and address
  • Any preference as to who you might like to pray for
  • Name of the Church and minister/leader where you regularly worship.

We will then put you in touch with someone appropriate.

John 1:1

In the beginning was the Word

Verse for today

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
