“Let the people praise Thee, O God; let all the people praise Thee.” This prayer is repeated twice in Psalm 67, expressing the psalmist’s fervent desire. The people of the earth cannot praise God if they don’t know Him. Therefore the psalmist’s heartfelt prayer also requests God’s blessings—not for selfish ambition or personal comfort, but because God’s blessings are directly connected to His mission in the earth. As we consider the need for the distribution of the gospel to all the peoples of the earth, we are honored to host the 2017 September meeting of the GIBF and hope that you will be able to attend. Our prayer is that God might bless us in even greater ways, so all the people of the earth might praise the Lord!
