WAAST Prayer Guide – November 20, 2022
This week pray for WORKERS IN MEDIA & TRANSLATION
An increasing number of WAAST students and alumni use social media platforms, radio, and even television to spread the gospel, teach, and communicate with the members of their congregations. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many began broadcasting their weekly messages, Bible studies, and prayer meetings, and many churches have continued to do so. This more widespread exposure has many advantages. In areas of instability, where churches have been closed and people scattered, believers can “meet” or access teachings online. Those whose religion forbids their going to church can hear God’s Word and contact pastors and believers to ask questions and receive counseling and teaching. Some WAAST alumni are involved in Bible translation, making God’s Word available in print and audio form in the heart languages of various groups. Others provide literacy classes so that people can read the Bible and other works, opening up a new world to them.
- for the Spirit’s anointing on those who write and produce Christian programs, films, and literature for evangelism and discipleship training;
- for stable Internet access in areas of unrest and where evangelism is restricted;
- for health and divine protection for translation and literacy-training teams, especially those who serve people who oppose the gospel, and for a spiritual breakthrough among these groups.
