Churches of all denominations nationwide will join together in prayer for the spread of the Christian Gospel through New Zealand’s mass media next month.
The 2012 Media Prayer Day on Sunday 5 August has the endorsement and support of every mainstream Christian denomination.
In 2010, more than 850 churches participated in Media Prayer Day. It is expected that more than 1100 will be involved this year.
The mass media has become a Christian mission field in ways never dreamed of a few years ago. All New Zealand Christians are asked to join together in prayer for their fellow-Christians working in television, radio, film, electronic and advertising media and print.
The Media Prayer Day is organised by the Christian Broadcasting Association (CBA) with assistance from the Rhema Broadcasting Group. They are asking the churches of New Zealand to take a few minutes of their Sunday service on 5 August to pray:
• for Christian working within all forms of mass media.
• for those who have great influence within New Zealand’s mass media—high profile presenters and those who hold the power behind the scenes.
• for media gate keepers—those that can keep the Christian message out, or make a way for God’s message to be communicated clearly.
Participating churches are encouraged to register their involvement by phoning 0800 PRAYER or by emailing .
