Where do you fit in the story God is telling?

The power of God’s Word is reaching the world.

We’re leveraging technology to equip this generation to be the most Bible-engaged people in history. Why? Because we’re convinced that when you invest in reading or listening to Scripture, it has the power to change your life. We know it does… because we’re seeing it happen all over the world.

I felt like when I read it, it was
speaking TO me, instead of me
just reading the pages of a
book. That was the beginning
of a whole new life for me.
It’s something that gets inside you

and changes you from the
inside out.

The Global Impact of 200 Million Installs

That’s how many times the Bible App has now been installed. 200 million times, somewhere in the world, a person has decided they want to be more intentional about spending time in God’s Word. 200 million times, a person has thought, “What if I could read the Bible…anywhere?” Then, once they begin engaging with the Bible, they discover that it is actually alive—that it has the power to change the world…one heart at a time.

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
