Lord, we love your Word! You sustain us and renew our minds through it. Yet there are millions of people who do not have access to your life-giving Word. We rejoice today in the promising new software called Render that allows Bible translation to be completely oral. Thank you for this creative approach that will enable translation to be done by people who are illiterate but gifted oral interpreters. We pray for Pioneer Bible Translators and the Seed Company as they use this new tool. We pray for each person involved to be enthusiastic, dedicated, highly skilled, and empowered by your Spirit. We pray for the first project in Uganda to go smoothly and to open doors for many more projects in the future. We pray for accuracy, continued improvement, and lives to be changed! Thank you again for this likely breakthrough in Bible translation. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
