Your prayers are vital to SAT-7
SAT-7 provides the churches of the Middle East and North Africa with an opportunity to witness to Jesus Christ through inspirational, informative and educational television and online broadcasts 24/7. Prayer is at the centre of our work.
During Lent (5 March - 17 April) we are producing daily prayer points for the children of the Middle East and for specific programmes broadcast on our SAT-7 KIDS channel.
There are 150 million children under the age of 15 in the Middle East. SAT-7 KIDS is currently viewed by over 9 million households (InterMedia survey 2011). Incredibly 1 in 3 children in Iraq and 1 in 4 in Saudi Arabia watch SAT-7 KIDS!
Prayer points for the first week of Lent (5-11 March) are on the right and information about the relevant programme are below.
"But the love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear him. His salvation extends to the children’s children.” Psalm 103:17 (NLT)
Bed Time Story
“It’s time to go to bed! But wait… don’t you want to hear a story? Rita is waiting to tell you a bed time story that will take you on a wonderful adventure in the Bible with many exciting characters that will teach you about faith in God.”
Bed Time Story is a long-running favourite on SAT-7 KIDS for children aged 2-8 years old. The show is just 10 minutes long and simple in format but powerful in communicating the Gospel through Bible stories that bring peace and hope to children and parents alike.
You can view a short compilation video of Bed Time Story with English subtitles here.

Wednesday 5 March: Praise God that Bed Time Story is loved by many, many children in the Middle East.
Thursday 6 March: Many viewers of Bed Time Story live in areas of conflict like Syria and Egypt. Pray they will find peace and hope as they hear about Jesus when watching the show.

Sunday 9 March: Pray that the power of God's word will impact the lives of children and parents from non-Christian backgrounds as they watch Bed Time Story.
Monday 10 March: Praise God that Bed Time Story and all SAT-7 KIDS programmes are an encouragement to Christian families in countries where there are no churches and being a Christian can be very difficult.
Tuesday 11 March: Give thanks that satellite TV and the internet provide great opportunities for the Gospel to penetrate areas otherwise closed to Christian ministry. Pray that through SAT-7 the Church in the Middle East will grow and mature.
