An Advent Prayer resource
Hope of all the Earth is an uplifting resource for you and your church this Advent.
It is available as a prayer guide for individuals and a
resource pack for churches to get the whole congregation involved.
The prayer guide features inspiring daily Bible reflections and stories of hope from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). It is the region where hope itself was born when Christ came down to Earth over 2,000 years ago, and it is a region today that desperately needs the hope that Jesus offers. The prayer guide has a particular focus on Iran, Egypt and Turkey and the connection these countries have with the Christmas story.
If you already receive a hard copy of News and Prayer in the post, you will be sent the Hope of all the Earth prayer guide automatically – but you can order extra copies for your house group or other Christian friends.
You can also download a PDF of the prayer guide, as well as extra Advent resources, here, or click below to order your hard copies.
Church resource pack
The church resource pack contains easy-to-use materials that will enable the whole congregation to get involved:
• 10 individual prayer guides (more can be ordered as required)
• A giant Christmas card* for the congregation to decorate with stars, sign and write their messages and prayers in
• Children’s church session plan and craft activity: four Sunday school lessons that enable children to walk through Advent with people from different Middle Eastern countries that have a connection with the Christmas story. The entire children's resources is available to download here.
• PowerPoint slides featuring prayers and stories from the guide are available electronically here.
We'll provide you with a pack of star stickers - add them to the Christmas card to fill up the night sky with prayers for the Middle East!
Raise funds for SAT-7 with our giant Christmas card
*The Christmas card is intended as an opportunity for your church to raise funds for SAT-7. Rather than sending individual cards to everyone in the congregation, people can use the giant card to share Christmas greetings and prayers – and then contribute what they would have spent on cards to the SAT-7 collection. You can choose in advance where the money goes: to broadcasts in Iran, Egypt, or Turkey, or across the region.
