World Day of Prayer

Photo Credits: United Bible SocietiesEvery year, the Philippine Bible Society, along with other Bible Societies around the globe, observe May 9 as World Day of Prayer, enjoining everyone to intercede for the Bible work worldwide. The World Day of Prayer also commemorates the founding of the United Bible Societies—a fellowship of 147 affiliated Bible Societies which translate, print and distribute the Scriptures in more than 200 countries and territories.
Today, the Philippine Bible Society celebrated the World Day of Prayer in a solemn program, remembering the Bible Societies who are laboring to make the Bible known. PBS was joined by partners from the Episcopal Commision for the Biblical Apostolate (ECBA), Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches (PCEC),  National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP), The Christian and Missionary Alliance Churches of the Philippines (CAMACOP) and Intercessors for the Philippines (IFP) in interceding not only for the United Bible Societies but also for the nation.
Join us today in observing the World Day of Prayer.

UBS Day of Prayer
May 9
Lord of our past, we thank you for those who, in obedience to your call, have founded and built the Bible Societies of our Fellowship and brought them together into one worldwide Fellowship.
Lord of our present, we thank you for the unifying, healing and restoring effect of the Scriptures, drawing together Christians of every tradition in the single task of making the message of the Bible available, accessible, understood and applied.
Lord of our future, we thank you for the sure and certain hope that, whether we work in barren or fruitful circumstances, our labour is not in vain since you have promised that your Word will not fall short of what you plan for it but will do everything you send it to do.
May we take strength from your blessing and protection in the past days.
May we work together to maintain the unity of the Spirit with one heart and mind in the present days.
And may we renew our vision to strive for a future day when all nations live under the blessing and direction of your Word.
In the name of the Father who sustains, the Son who heals us and the Spirit who inspires us.

I am a Bible Ambassador because I believe that the Bible can help people a lot. And knowing the Bible, people come in touch with the Lord Jesus Christ.

It's an honor and a privilege for me to support the Philippine Bible Society - to reach out to the unreachable people by giving Bibles not only in the Philippines but the whole world.

“It is a blessing to be able to support our local churches in need of Bibles and Bible study programs. It is our hope that they not only grow in terms of membership but also have the heart to extend spiritual help to others, just like how they have received help.”

“Philippine Bible Society organizes trainings that really respond to the needs of people who are suffering.
It has well-equipped leaders who facilitate trainings and workshops.
Its mission to reach out to Filipinos using God’s Word is fulfilled through its works.”

“I praise and thank our Almighty God that, through PBS, I now own a Poimen version of MBB (Magandang Balita Biblia) in the national language of the Philippines – Tagalog.
Knowing Matthew 10:32-33, I read and study the Bible so that I will not be dismayed when the Lord Jesus Christ comes. Life is too short compared with the promise of eternal life in God’s Kingdom.”

I think this is very helpful to every readers. The word of the Lord are the food of our soul which we always need every minute of our life. I dont often read the Bible but everytime i open it, God was always like in front of me and speaking as what is something i'm just needing to hear. He speaks to me and i can feel it. A million thanks to You my Lord.
