I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray for the ministry of Bibles in Schools. We thank you for their success, Lord, and we pray that You would continue to bless their efforts.

In May 2022, Intercessors For America held a webcast with a woman named Hannah Sailsbury. She shared the remarkable story of her ministry called Bibles in Schools. The heart of her ministry is for all children to have access to bibles. School libraries are now being filled with LGBTQ books and other very dark books. Bibles in Schools exists for children to be able to check out bibles and take them home, just as they would any library book.

Pray for your fellow intercessor.

 

IFA published her interview that included praise reports and how we can pray. In one month we received word from Hannah. She was excited to share how God has answered prayers, and is thankful to you for praying. 

Dear IFA team,

Thank you to your organization for interviewing me and spreading the mission of Bibles in Schools.  We exist to donate engaging Bibles to public school libraries, but we could not continue this mission without the support and prayer from people.—Thank you for your ministry of rallying prayer warriors across America to not only PRAY but GO!  As the body of Christ, we can get so much more accomplished together! God is on the move.”

 “Below are a few stories of how your supporters have rallied around Bibles in Schools!”

After seeing the IFA interview, an 87 year old woman in South Carolina bought 60 Action Bibles. She contacted Bibles in Schools wanting to know the process of getting these bibles into her local schools. She already has meetings with three school libraries. One of the librarians was very excited, as they had just thrown away very old, moldy Bibles. She wanted multiple action bible copies. 

A woman in Georgia helped follow up with schools, and Bibles in Schools was able to get in three of her county schools.

Many people gave and signed up for the monthly prayer email list.

Lori, from California read the article on IFA.  She said she spent 50 years away from God, but is now on fire for Him!  She has been busy calling schools in California!  Her friend is a librarian and has been a big help as she told us they were just given LGBTQ books and told to put them on the library shelves.  With Lori’s help, we have donated to 5 schools there.  

Some of the schools denied the requests and said she couldn’t donate Bibles.  Even through the disappointments, she said, ” The Holy Spirit reminded me this morning, that the battle is the Lord’s and to stay the course. I had myself scheduled to go to the gym (very rarely do I not want to go). I was thinking about canceling. The negative responses wore me down. I’m glad I went. As soon as I put my earbuds in, and the worship music began, I was lifted up, reinvigorated, and refreshed.”

Isn’t it amazing how good God is? These are the reports we know of, I’m certain there are stories yet to be told. Can we praise God for what He has done and what He is doing in schools through his Word?

Please continue to pray for Hannah Sailsbury and Bibles in Schools.

Continue to pray for open doors for the Bibles to be allowed in these states: New Mexico, North Dakota, Connecticut, New England, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.  Lift each state by name before the Lord and ask Him to move over the administration, teachers, and parents.

Share the message of this ministry and prayerfully ask the Lord how you can help bring the word of God into the schools in your cities.

Lord, 

We are so thankful to You for this ministry. Thank You for the freedom in this nation to have access to bibles. Thank You for hearing our prayers and answering. Continue to bless Bibles in Schools to share the message of hope Your word offers and the hope this world needs. 

We are thankful for every person who has signed up to help. Give them courage to continue even in the face of resistance. 

We pray for those who will sign up, we pray that You would give them supernatural favor when they meet with libraries. 

We pray that You would move over the hearts of the administration, and school board who are resisting Bibles coming into libraries. Your word is living and active, it pierces and discerns the hearts and motives of man. We pray that when they are reviewing the Bibles, that Your word would come alive to them personally. Speak to them through Your word. 

We pray and bless every single child who will check out a Bible. We pray for these little storytellers to preach to their classmates, teachers and families. We know Your words will never return void.

Are you thankful for what God is doing? Share your thoughts and comments below.

Praise to God for this inroad into our schools. My prayer is that this will spread and that tens of thousands of Bibles will be on the shelves of the schools around our nation. May God bless, guide and give wisdom and assistance to those who are involved.

Thank you for this story! I am a librarian and I have bibles and stories about bible characters for students to read or check out
in our elementary school.
These books have just as much legal right to be on the shelf as any other. Thank you Hannah! God Bless and protect you!

Dear Father, I pray that you will pave the way for the ministry of bibles be allowed and placed in every school. I bind the forces of the enemy satan that will try to block this from happening. You are the Great I Am and nothing is impossible for you. I further pray that you will put a desire in our children’s heart to want to know you personally. Thank you Father. In Jesus’ Name, amen.

Check out WPN (World Prayer Network) on July 3rd, 2022. David Barton gives an outstanding presentation on our beginnings as a nation. Did you know Bibles were the first textbooks in our schools?!

Praise God let every school be filled with bibles in the United States in Jesus name! Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. Matthew 19:14

Love the idea, of Bibkes in schools it’s much needed.

I certainly hope they aee not using King James Version Bible it is not today’s language it is difficult to read and very easily interpreted.
And about 12 grade level.

They need to use simpler forms the Bibles such as NIV or NLV which are 6th grade level. Or a variety of versions so studends have a choice of what fits their personality most.

But definitely a major prayer need.

    Please check out the interview with Hannah Salisbury in May 2022 on IFA. I was so inspired by the reaction of the children and the content of these bibles to attract them that I contributed an unusually large donation and asked to have these action bibles to be donated to schools in my county here also in CA. In the interview Hannah speaks of the enthusiasm of the students to share with their classmates. Can you imagine? God does above all that we could ask or imagine!

I have been praying for months that Bibles be put back into schools. This organization is an answer to my prayers. Thank you for all the good work you are doing. I look forward to participating.

Lord I pray for this organization and all the people that volunteer , that they be blessed. That you open doors to allow this good work to continue with the goal that all schools in the United States and around the world have Bibles in them. That the children read, learn, and share Your word so You are glorified. I pray this in Jesus name.

I am praying for every public and private school library to have these Bibles…actively attracting children to the Lord.

(New England is a section of states…May the persistence of God’s messengers break through!)

    I pray that every stronghold against the true church, God’s people and God’s Word will be broken. I pray for God to intervene in each school to place Bibles. I pray for all the illicit reading materials to be removed and cast into the mire deaths of the sea never to return again. In the Holy Name of Jesus Christ.Amen.☦️
