A vast army is coming against you...
The people of Judah came together to seek help from the Lord

-2 Chronicles 20:2,4

The spiritual forces of evil oppose Bible translation. We believe God's people united in prayer will bring the number of people without God's Word to Zero in our generation.

Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church - Acts 12:5

The history of prayer accelerating Bible translation

In Hernnhut, Germany, the Moravian community begins to pray without ceasing for 100 years catalyzing the modern missions movement.
Before founding Seed Company, Bernie May, challenges the Bible translation movement to prioritize prayer. Within two years, answered prayer is evidenced with the near doubling of Bible translation workers and funding.
The Bible translation movement partners with global prayer movements. Immediate and unprecedented unity amongst Bible translation ministries causes multiplication of workers and resources once again.
The Pray for Zero movement is launched casting vision for the global church to unite in prayer for Zero Bibleless people on earth by 2025. Indigenous leaders establish regional expressions in Asia, Africa and Pacific. The impact results in a surge of project starts amongst the remaining language communities still without one verse of the Bible.
Pray for Zero unites church, missions and house of prayer leaders to launch the virtual prayer room: Unceasing Prayer. Starting with 40 hours of weekly prayer and vision to fill all 168 weekly hours with prayer for Bible translation.

Take your place in history. Pray for Zero.
