Around the Word in 80 Days

A special offering from the HealingStrong organization

An 80-day commitment to reading God's Word out loud

Around the Word in 80 Days was a special project conducted by a group of people from the organization HealingStrong whose desire was to hear from God during a time of the pandemic and unsettling events. It began August 1, 2020 and ended on October 19, 2020 – an 80 day reading God’s Word from Genesis to Revelation. What the group discovered is the power of God’s Word being read out loud with each other. It was simply reading God’s Word out loud and watching Him work. It was that simple. Anyone can do it and He promises that His Word will go out and not return void.

"For just as rain and snow fall from heaven and do not return without watering the earth, making it bud and sprout, and providing seed to sow and food to eat, so My word that proceeds from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please, and it will prosper where I send it."
- Isaiah 55:10-11

Day 80 readings with testimonies - HealingStrong October 20, 2020

We started at Genesis 1:1 and continued 1 hour each night for 80 nights. Those who signed up to be a reader would show up that night to join together.  Readings were never assigned until a few minutes before, where we would start right where we left off the night before. We had dozens each night listening in, and readers would read from their favorite Bible, and we even had some read in their native language of Spanish or Portuguese. We witnessed God reach down from heaven on numerous occasions touching all of our hearts.  We saw first hand the healing of hearts and bodies, relationships were restored, forgiveness manifest and people of all walks of life came together as one.   We had those who were avid Bible readers, those who had never read the Bible before, and everywhere in between.  It was transformational. We hope and pray that this will continue on with countless folks reading the entire Bible together in 80 days.

Here are tools to help you do your very own Around the Word in 80 Days

"Until I come, give your time and effort to the public reading of the Scriptures and to preaching and teaching."
- Timothy 4:13

Our hope and prayer is that we can help others to do the same, starting their very own Around the Word in 80 Days bible reading, inviting their friends and family to join in daily with a commitment of 80 days. Your days will be ordered around it and YOU WILL get through and be forever changed.  All you need is a Bible and a desire to have others join you in reading the Word of God outloud.  We provide you with instructions to use a sign-up tool, daily email reminders, and an actual video reading of one night of readings.
