40 Days Of Prayer To Answer The Cry

 

DAY 34

 

QUESTION: What heroes or heroines of the faith inspire you in your Christian walk?

 

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." Hebrews 12:1

 

We read about men and women of faith in Hebrews 11. The Bible says they were "foreigners and strangers on earth…longing for a better country a heavenly one" (see Hebrews 11:13-16). This sense - of being alone but guided by the hope of an eternal future and hope - will resonate strongly with many SAT-7 viewers who are in the minority as Christians, often isolated from other believers and facing discrimination because of their faith. Viewers like Basheer from Sudan. He did not own a Bible, so borrowed one from a friend and photocopied a few pages so that he could continue to draw strength from the word of God. Now, watching SAT-7 has become a companion for him in his walk with God.

 

Basheer explains, "I found out about SAT-7 just six weeks ago, but I was not able to watch it because of my roommate. I moved to my own apartment just to be able to watch SAT-7’s programmes and to worship the Lord. Thank you, SAT-7, for giving me a sense of not being alone as I press forward toward the eternal life."

 

PRAY: Give thanks for men and women of faith that we read about in Hebrews. Give thanks too for today’s heroes and heroines of faith who encourage believers in the Middle East and North Africa. Pray that more believers, like Basheer, will be able to watch SAT-7 programmes. Ask that they will feel a sense of companionship as they seek to live out their daily lives and "run with perseverance the race" towards eternal glory.
