ADVENT PRAYER 2021
Like the shepherds watching over their flocks at night and waiting for the dawn, Advent is a time where churches and believers around the world “watch and wait” for the coming Messiah.
Throughout Advent, SAT-7 broadcasts the joyful message of Christmas, televising church services and celebrations and proclaiming the good news that there is a living and active Church in the region.
