The Power of the Lord’s Prayer…Today

All around the world, people are hungry for hope. And God’s Word remains just as relevant, meaningful, and powerful as it has for thousands of years. In Matthew 6:9–13, Jesus taught His disciples a simple model for how they could reach out to the Father every day. Even today, people still recite Jesus’ words — what we know as “The Lord’s Prayer” — for comfort, provision, and direction for their lives.

We hope you’ll enjoy this short video from the Church of England, “Just Pray,” showing the profound power that these words still carry:

The Lord’s Prayer

“Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.
Amen.”
Matthew 6:9–13, NASB

Did you know?

The Bible App now features more than 1,200 different Bible versions, in more than 880 languages. Together with our partners, YouVersion is working to make God’s Word available to every person on Earth, no matter where they live or what language they prefer.


 

What 102 New Bible Versions in 86 New Languages Means… to You

At YouVersion, we have the best jobs in the world. Every day, we do everything we can to help people engage with the Bible. And we get to partner with visionaries, friends who inspire us by actively translating Bibles…and then freely sharing those Bibles with us. And with you. Together, we’re working to make God’s Word available to every person on Earth, no matter where they live or what language they prefer.

If you joined this conversation by clicking through an email you received from us:
Thank you! And welcome.
(If you’re not receiving our emails, you can subscribe here.)

During the last six months alone, our Bible partners have given us 102 new versions and 86 new languages to add to the Bible App. (The complete list appears at the end of this post.) Thanks to their generosity, we’re now able to offer 1,200 versions in 868 languages. Join us. Help us get Bibles to people like this boy in Nepal…

lightstock_170070_medium_kyle_

Maithili is just one language in the batch of 86 we just added. One of the most common languages in India, Maithili is the second most widely used language in Nepal. Maithili is the primary language of 12 million people and a second language to 33 million more. Let that sink in for a moment. For millions of people, the Maithili Bible (provided by Wycliffe) marks the first opportunity they’ve ever had to experience God’s Word in the language of their heart. What will God’s Spirit say to them? To him?

And help us get Bibles to people like this woman…

lightstock_200369_medium_kyle_

Amharic is another of the 86. In Ethiopia, where this woman lives, 22 million people speak Amharic. Outside Ethiopia, Amharic has another 2.7 million speakers. And for 15 million people, Amharic is their only language. (After Arabic, Amharic is the second-most spoken Semitic language in the world.) The Amharic Bible (or New Amharic Standard Version, provided by Biblica) presents God’s Word to Amharic speakers in an everyday style that’s easy for ordinary people to read and understand. Even in remote areas where people don’t have running water or reliable transportation, many have cell phones, tablets, and other mobile devices — which means they now have the opportunity to experience the Bible in their heart language.

The Word of God is living and active. His Spirit is on the move all over the world, transforming hearts with life-changing power. Imagine a world where every person can instantly engage with God’s Word in their own language. In the history of our planet, nothing like that has ever even been possible before. But right now, today, for the first time ever, not only is it possible… this dream is within our reach.

What would happen?
We want to find out. Don’t you?

  1. Engage with God’s Word every day. Let it speak to you, change you.
  2. Share the Bible App with everyone you can. Show them what’s already there.
  3. Click through our incredible partners below and see what they’re doing. Let their passion inspire you like it inspires us.

Let’s change the world together.
