A PRAYER SANCTUARY ON SCREEN
The newest SAT-7 TÜRK program to shine Christ’s light to viewers is Prayer Season, a live show that has been broadcast three times per week since mid-July.
Presenter of Prayer Season Ayda Danacıoğlu discusses challenging issues raised by its Turkish viewers, then encourages and supports the audience through the ministry of prayer.
“God helps us overcome the problems we face in our daily lives,” says Ayda. “Despite the suffering, we experience in the world, the most effective way to heal is to unite in prayer together.”
INCREASED VIEWER RESPONSE
In its first months on air, Prayer Season received a positive response from its audience, who shared their thoughts through phone calls and emails. These messages included both prayer requests and words of special thanks to SAT-7 TÜRK for adding the program to the channel.
“Our audience have become a lot more vocal, contacting and thanking us after each episode. Many have expressed what a great blessing this program is in their lives,” says Audience Relations Manager Ümit Teymur. “In spite of all the current problems in our country, we broadcast messages of power and love of Jesus Christ to give the hopeless hope. We serve them as one body in Christ, remembering John 1:5, ‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.’”
Here are just a few of the responses SAT-7 TÜRK has received recently:
“Today I woke up filled with joy. I believe in Jesus Christ. He came as a peace ambassador, and He is the only one who will save us. I constantly see Him in my dreams: He shows me how to walk in the light. Turkey really needs this channel.
