Today is the National Day of Prayer in the USA, a movement where people across the nation join together in prayer for this country, political leaders, local communities, and the world.
Prayer is one of the most powerful tools at a person’s disposal, especially for Christians, as it directly connects us with a God who is all-powerful and all-knowing and capable of changing our world for the better. When prayers are brought before the throne, mountains can be moved and the impossible made possible. SAT-7 invites you to join with us in praying for our ministry in making the Gospel known in the Middle East and North Africa, along with praying over each person being touched with God’s truth around the world.
PRAY FOR OUR NATION
God we praise you for giving us the freedom to believe and worship you in a country that strives to protect religious freedom. Many in our nation are lost and living lives contrary to how you desire for them to live. Please draw others to know You and make Yourself known to each person in their day to day lives. Continue to bless our nation and its leaders and keep Your hand of protection on it, guarding it from those who would wish it harm. Create unity among the people and allow love to flourish over hate.
PRAY FOR THE MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA (MENA)
God we lift up the MENA nations to you with all of their conflict and strife that has created division and difficulty for so many people who live there. We pray that you would instill strong and just leaders who would fight against acts of terror threatening the lives of the innocent. Although environments can make it challenging for people to come to know You, You bridge the great divide and meet people right where they are. We pray the Christians would be salt and light in the midst of their culture and that they would have the perseverance to continue in their faith through the tough times. Let them know they are not alone.
PRAY FOR THE CHURCH
Dear Lord, we pray for Your Church, both locally in America and across the world, that You would continue to show your love for its people, even when they sin and fall short of Your righteousness. We thank You for Your grace that You’ve made available to everyone and for the many people who have personally chosen to accept it for themselves, thereby coming into a saving relationship with You. We pray that the Church in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is bold in sharing the good news of Christ and that You would continue to grow Your kingdom in the MENA and in nations around the world.
PRAY AGAINST RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION
Dear Lord, we come before You heart-broken from hearing of so many of our brothers and sisters in Christ facing persecution, even to the point of death. We sorrow over the fact that churches in many countries are no longer safe havens to worship You but rather targets for enemies to try to destroy. We pray for Your protection over Your people and that You would bring justice to those who bring them harm. Also bring comfort to those who have lost family members or suffered hardship at the hands of extremist groups. We pray You would strengthen Your people through the power of the Holy Spirit, that they may face whatever trials come their way.
PRAY FOR THE WORK OF SAT-7
God we thank you that over 24 million people have had access to the Gospel in the Middle East and North Africa because of the programs of SAT-7. You have graciously allowed this ministry to grow and flourish over these past 23 years and have given it strong leaders of vision along with staff who desire to have an impact for Christ in the work we do. We pray that SAT-7 is able to continue producing programs that are relevant to our viewers and positively impact communities and nations for You. Thank You for all of our friends and donor supporters who come alongside us in our ministry and make the work we do possible.
In the name of Jesus, amen!
