Today I have something excited to share with you. But first, Thank You for spending your 5 minutes to read and pray with me today for the Unreached and Bibleless People Groups.
Our Focus UPG today is Penghulu People. They are about 30,000 people live in this area in Sumatra Island.
Their language is a mixture of the Minangkabau language and the Jambi Malay language, widely spoken by every one, every day. They don’t have one verse of God’s word in their language. The largest religion is Islam. Though in general the Penghulu are Muslims, they still cling to traditional animistic beliefs for everyday life. They believe that strong spirits inhabit sacred sites. Some are still in the habit of giving offerings to appease the spirits. Many people seek help from the shaman for daily needs like treating the sick or casting out evil spirits.
Would you join me today to pray for them?
- Ask for God to send His workers to this people, to reach them strategically.
- Ask that doors will be open for translation work to give them access to God’s word.
- Ask God’s Kingdom will be there, His will be done for this people as it is done in Heaven.
- Ask God to show you how you can be part of His works for this people.
And here’s the exciting news!
One of Wycliffe’s partner organizations, The Seed Company, released a new Devotional e-Book, Joy In All Circumstances. It’s a beautiful devotional designed to both encourage the reader and prompt them to pray for the Bibleless People Group.
You can download the free devotional HERE (or click on the picture to download). And please feel free to share this blessing with your families and friends 🙂
