As part of its major ‘Answer the Cry’ campaign, launched in 2016, Christian satellite TV broadcaster SAT-7 is asking UK Christians to pledge to pray for the Middle East each day during Lent 2017.
From 1 March, participants in ’40 Days of Prayer’ will embark on a journey to hear the stories, hopes and dreams of people from across the Middle East and North Africa as they walk with SAT-7 towards Easter. Using daily content via text, email or the SAT-7 website, participants will pray for hope and transformation across the Middle East region.
Participation in ’40 Days of Prayer’ is free and open to all, either by signing up at www.sat7uk.org/pray40 or texting PRAY40 to 60777.
Throughout the 40 days of Lent (plus Sundays) participants will be sent different levels of content to help focus their prayers. These range from focusing on a particular country, through questions to ponder in our own spiritual lives, to life-changing stories from across the entire region.
Dr Terence Ascott, SAT-7’s Founder and CEO, commented “One in five viewers who contact SAT-7 send us prayer requests. Prayer is the greatest contribution that you can make to this ministry.”
The Answer the Cry campaign recognises and supports the deeply felt desires of people from across the whole region. Their desperation is seen in the news every day in the voices of
women crying out for value, frightened children crying out for peace, angry young men crying out for meaning, and persecuted Christians crying out for the strength to face tomorrow.
Every day, SAT-7 receives more than 800 responses to its satellite TV broadcasts in the region – and that demand is growing. Find out more at: www.answerthecry.org.
Rachel Fadipe, Executive Director of SAT-7 UK, said “Day by day, events in the Middle East massively affect the lives of our fellow Christians. They – and thousands of others wearied by strife and conflict – look to SAT-7 for hope, wisdom and a brighter vision. This Lent we invite you to journey with us and with our viewers as we pray for God’s love to be made visible across the region.”
