Bibleless People Prayer Project


"The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results." James 5:16 NLT
What if you could pray for a people group still waiting for God’s Word—and follow the progress of translation for their language? As a part of the Bibleless Peoples Prayer Project (BPPP), thousands of people are already committing to pray all the way through the end of the translation process.

Befang of Cameroon

This language is also called Beba-Befang, Biba-Bifang, Bifang, and Menchum. It belongs to the Niger-Congo/Atlantic-Congo language family. Speakers are located around Befang, straddling Tuba Subdivision in Mezam Division and Wum Subdivision in Menchum Division of North West Province. Modele, Ushaku, Befang, Bangui, Obang, and Okomanjang are dialects of Befang.

Pray that speakers of this language will be inspired to translate the Scriptures for their people.

“Forever, O LORD, your word stands firm in heaven. Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth you created” (Psalm 119:89-90, NLT).

Pray for the message
* Pray that the last languages of the world would receive the Scriptures in whatever form they need it. Dare to ask God for big things! Ask Him to provide a person in the world with His world - just as He has already provided it for us - written and in the heart language.
 Pray for the people
* Pray for the safety of the Bibleless people. Many are residents in, or displaced from, countries with poor political and social conditions.
Pray for the completion of the Task to the Glory of God
* Pray for perseverance. Pray that those involved in the translation task would not grow weary or give up before the work is complete.
