News & Prayer: January 2019
Happy New Year! Join us in praying for the Middle East & North Africa every day during January with our monthly News & Prayer. You’ll find articles about SAT-7’s TV programmes and channels and real-life testimonies from people in the region, with accompanying daily prayer points.
This month, we are praying for an Algerian woman whose life was changed by an encounter with Jesus; a special episode of Keep on Singing which transformed Jordanian viewers; and a new show for Iranian youth which hopes to connect them more closely to God.
Prayer is powerful
Prayer is central to all that we do, and your prayers are a vital way to support our work. Will you join us in praying for the people of the Middle East and North Africa, and for the work of SAT-7 as we make God’s love visible to millions across the region?
I am very happy to have friends like you and thank you for your prayers. My son called me and said that he wants to know Christ. It was a real surprise for me, as for the last three years I used to send Bible verses to him, but he would always tell me, “Better to change your way.” But I know that because of your prayers and the patience God gave me, I continued praying and was hopeful. I told my son that I trusted God and I am very happy that first his father, and then his brother and now he has found Christ. Praise the Lord.”
We produce a monthly prayer resource, News and Prayer, which gives stories from SAT-7’s work as well as daily prayer pointers for our work and the MENA region.
