Challenges for Prayer

Christian media ministries to pray for:

a) The Bible in Swati. It is available in a recent translation, and Christian bookstores exist, such as ones run by CLC and the Nazarenes.

b) National Christian radio. The SCC Media Centre produces 18 hours of Christian programming weekly for broadcasting on national radio.

c) International Christian radio. TWR Swaziland has three shortwave and one medium wave as well as one FM transmitter, reaching a potential 700 million people in 58 languages in Africa and southwest Asia. Pray for provision of programming in each language – especially in languages with few believers – and in areas of unrest.

     For an additional 3 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
