Wycliffe USA is founded on a bed of answered prayers. Today, the ministry invites you, along with its staff, to join them for their annual World Day of Prayer.

Wycliffe’s Annual World Day of Prayer

Each year, Wycliffe’s annual World Day of Prayer falls on November 11. On this day in 1933, Wycliffe’s founder, William Cameron Townsend, entered Mexico by the grace of a letter after previously being denied entry. That letter was written by a prominent educator from Mexico who was passionate about Townsend’s vision for Bible translation.

Now, as this work continues, Wycliffe remembers its beginning and God’s faithfulness in Bible translation.

“We believe that Bible translation always begins with prayer. And so, this is our annual event to really just remind us of why we’re doing what we’re doing and that God’s in it. And we pray for a lot of the languages around the world,” Wycliffe’s Matt Petersen says.

“It is just as important, if not more so, than giving or serving. And so, this is one opportunity annually for us to remind people of that and to ask them to join us in praying.”
