MAF’s Global Week of Prayer is back!

Each year we invite our supporters to join in with our Global Week of Prayer, praying remotely but in partnership with the MAF family around the world. A special edition prayer diary to inform your prayers will be included with the October edition of Flying for Life magazine, but if you would like access to a digital version right now, please simply fill in the form below.

This year’s theme is The simple Gospel. The term ‘gospel’ is used more than 90 times in the New Testament. Although the word has various connotations, its primary meaning from the Greek is ‘good news’.

If you look at today’s news headlines, the message people are getting from the Church is far from good! The difference between one expression of Christianity and another, along with stories of fallen leaders and the tragic consequences for those affected by their actions, seem to dominate our social media feeds and newspaper headlines. It sometimes looks as if we’re more famous for what we’re against, than what we are for!

The world is crying out to hear some good news. News that there is Someone who loves them more than words can describe. News that, no matter what has gone before, new beginnings are possible. News that there really is more to life than this.

John 3:16 reminds us that, ‘God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life’ (NIV).

This world needs a new witness of the Church. It needs some Good News! It needs an encounter with the goodness of God. It needs you and me to pray and to shine! Let’s start afresh, today.
