The loneliness, anxiety, depression and pain were too much for me to handle, so I turned my attention to suicide as a way of escape. But what I didn't know was that Jesus was not only going to save my life, He was going to change it in ways that were unimaginable!

Back in August my daughter was having many medical issues. Crossroads church had an advertising for VBS, I thought that would be something we could do for fun before school started. We got up that morning the kids fighting and getting on my nerves bad. We pull up in the parking lot a peace fell over us, and we hurried inside because we were late to top it off. My daughter and me both had been depressed about the things going on in her life and we felt that there was no hope. I had even asked God to take me and not her. We had prayed and others had prayed for us but we were at a giving up point. She told me she was scared and I never could help her find the peace she needed. I told her go talk to Pastor Tim. Well she tried to find him and got him mixed up with a another gentleman. After a while she found him, he and several others took her and prayed and anointed her. September rolls around and we have our next mri. We were feeling the worst because all the others had showed that the lesions on her brain were growing. We prayed that morning and believed that she was healed. The next day after the apt the doctor called. I just about dropped the phone when he sighed and said. There is nothing there it's all gone. I don't have a medical explanation. I shouted its called divine intervention. He laughed I have to admit your God heals. Her doctor was a buddist. Since this has happened a whole new journey has begun for this family, we witness, we tell our stories of healing and what God has done for us. We want others to know that God can and will do this for you, You ask and you obey his word and believe in him and he will give you blessings beyond compare.

I guess you can say that I have 90.9, KSWP to thank for my salvation. God, of course, gets all of the glory, but KSWP played a huge factor because it was the tool that the Lord used. When I worked at retail store many years ago, I heard a song called, "The Slam". I liked it so much that I tried my best to look through all of the CD's at the store to find the singer, TobyMac. I looked through all of the genres of music. All except Christian that is. I was shocked when I found out that it was a Christian song. I bought the entire album and loved it. I then found out about 90.9, KSWP. I began to turn to the station randomly just to see if they played any songs by TobyMac. They did! While waiting for him, though, I heard another song that I loved. It was called, "Revelation" by Third Day. So then I had a few reasons to keep listening to KSWP. I ended up buying a few Third Day albums to add to my collection. There were two songs in particular that I listened to over and over: "Take It All" and "Cry Out To Jesus". One night, at another job I had, I played those songs all night. It was around midnight and it was time to go home. It was November, so it was cold and rainy that night. I got in my car and listen to "Cry Out To Jesus" over and over and then suddenly something happened. It stopped being just a song to me. It was more like a prayer rather than a song. I could hear and feel God speaking through that song. He was telling me that there is hope for the hopeless, rest for the weary. In other words, there is no excuse because God has anything and everything I need. That cold and rainy night, in my car, I turned my life over to Jesus Christ. Within a years time, God turned my life upside down and changed everything! The first big change in my life was a Christian FB page. I had just lost my job and had my wife and 3 girls to provide for. I felt that I had hit rock bottom at that point, but I knew God would somehow provide. During that time, God spoke to me and wanted me to start up a Christian FB page of all things. That page now has over 1800 members and it has helped many families through the wonderful members of it. It has kept me focused on Christ. Because of the Praise Page, I eventually found my career. I am now the Program Director for Meals On Wheels and Helping Hands Outreach Center, which are programs under Shelby County Outreach Ministries. God is using this organization to help our community in many ways. My wife had just recently got saved as well, so I proposed to her again. We renewed our wedding vows so God would be invited into the middle of our marriage from the beginning this time. I got baptized, which was something I said that I would never do. I didn't think you needed to, but I wanted to this time! I began playing the drums in my Church, which, as shy as I am, is a big deal. I also became a Sunday School teacher. Later on that year, I stopped fighting God's call for me to preach His word. I surrendered to the ministry! Along with my entire family and friends, that is something that I never thought I would do! I am a Youth Pastor at my Church now and get to bring the message on what we call "Youth Sunday". I fought the call to preach hard because my father in-law and brother in-law were both preachers as well. I just laughed at the idea of preaching because why would God want 3 preachers in one small Church?! Other than music, though, I want to tell you a verse that helped me turn my life over to Christ. Mark 5:36b says, "Be not afraid, only believe". When I was lost I thought I had to have all of the answers before I fully committed to Christ. I had all of these, "What if's" that I couldn't answer. That verse made me realize that I don't have to have the answers. I didn't have to be afraid of not knowing. All I had to do was simply believe.

Just wanted you to know that I called for prayer for protection for my family in the Philippines from the storm. I talked with my sister and all my family is safe and the wind just blew all around them, but nothing was damaged. Please continue to pray for those who did lose so much, but I praise God my family is safe and sound. Thank you all for praying.

Thank you all for praying for my grandson, Nathan. He was showing all the signs of having meningitis, but thanks to all the prayers that were offered by everyone for him we have a much less serious problem. Turns out to be a virus that settled in his joints and neck that caused his pain and weakness. Monday we spent the entire day in Texas Children's Hospital in Houston thanks to two Godly women at church who suggested we go there. The time spent there was worth every second. Because of their thoroughness the problem was diagnosed and we are back home. God is in control and working out His purpose in our lives. Hallelujah! Thank You!

I asked for prayer about a week ago for my daughter who was having migraines at 38 weeks pregnant. I had a overwhelming amount of response with prayer. The same day something made me think to have her take her blood pressure. It was 153/112, so I called the doctor and left work to go pick her up. By the time I got there she had two seizures and was non responsive. I immediately called 911 and they were there within 5 minutes. Her blood pressure had gone up to 212/115 and she was unable to speak she had bit her tongue so bad. I followed them to the ER where they tried to get her stable. This hospital had no fetal monitoring and she needed to be sent to Tyler for immediate care. There was some miscommunication with the ambulance service and they went to another hospital to transport another patient. It was going to be to long for them to come back so they called a helicopter and flew her on to Tyler. All this took about 3 hours and meanwhile the baby had no monitoring. We had a team of people praying and our pastor was there by her side praying over her and the baby. We headed to Tyler where they began medications to lower her blood pressure and induced labor. All was good with the baby. By 5:00 pm she began labor and received a epidural which dropped her blood pressure to low and she became sick. Finally after about 3 hours she was stable and ready to push. Baby girl was born at 2:57 am on 10-22. Healthy 6lbs 10ozs and 19 1/2 inches long. Mother and baby are doing well but moms blood pressures were still not stable. She stayed in the hospital until Thursday and her blood levels were to low for her to come home. By Thursday afternoon they re-checked them and they were normal. I have no doubt God was in control the whole time and heard all our prayers. Please continue to pray for mom as she is still having some blood pressure issues and anxiety. Baby is growing and doing well! Thank you Lord for answered prayers and all those who lifted them up in prayer and continue to do so.

Just had to share this: I was in the car in the parking lot at Walmart with the window down listening to KSWP & the lady that was parked beside me opened her door & had her radio on KSWP also. I said "we're listening to the same station". She smiled real big & said " I just love that station". Thank you God!
October 20, 2013
God is good! I know you hear that often but I now KNOW it's true! I heard a simple message last year on KAVX, although I don't remember which program it was... I now know that while I feel like I am not deserving of any answered prayers, because it's about Jesus and not me, miracles have happened! Thank you, those of you who prayed on my behalf at KAVX. I do NOT have cancer, God has touch and mended broken relationships, perfect college opportunities for my son..... This has been a tremendous faith booster for me! Praise and thanks to God!

I love "You are I Am" by Mercy Me. I first heard this song and heard the words in the song talk about where I am, "I've been the one to believe that where I am You cannot reach..." But, then I heard the singers remind me that there is someone more powerful than the thoughts going on in your mind today...during the same week my husband and I were struggling with our marriage. We listened to the song together and we both cried. It's amazing because I was asking my husband to be a strong spiritual leader for us. Thank God, we are trying very hard to work out our issues. Thanks for playing songs that glorify and praise our great God!

I would like to thank everyone that has prayed for my family. I have had several prayer request. My son who attempted sucide is March is doing better. We are seeing a christian counselor and taking a low dose medicine that is not an anti depressant that seems to be helping. He is doing well so far in school and looking forward to a trip to New York next summer with One Act Play kids. My husband, Randy, had a spinal cord stimulator put in a little over a month ago. He is still needing some pain meds, but over all is doing much better. He still has a little ways to go regarding some other issues, so please continue to pray for him. However, God has been faithful. My mom is doing better. The dr finally diagnosed her with Fibromyalgia and is now taking some medicine that is giving her some relief as well. God is always faithful. He may be quiet as we go through certain journeys but that is usually because He is waiting on us to fully accept or learn something we did to before moving to the next level. Thank you again.
October 10, 2013

Yesterday, in the middle of a busy time, the phone rang and "David" (with a very thick foreign accent) said, "I'm calling about your computer." I said, "My computer?" "Yes, this is David, calling about your computer. I am getting signals that there is a problem with your computer." Since the caller ID said "Name Unknown" and the number was 000-000-0000, I guessed pretty quickly that this was a scam call. I said, "Look, I don't have time for things like this. Take me off your list and never call again." When I put the phone down, the Holy Spirit gently rebuked me for responding in irritation instead of taking the opportunity to tell someone about Jesus. Well, today, Praise the LORD!, I got another one of those calls, this time from a young man named "Judge." As soon as I saw the caller ID, I began to pray for wisdom and answered the phone. He began with the same spiel but this time I said, "Judge, I am so glad you called. I'm not having trouble with my computer but I want to tell you that Jesus, God's son, died on the cross to save you from your sins. Have you ever heard that?" "No, ma'am," he said. "Judge, we all owe a great debt to God, a debt we could never pay. But Jesus took all our debt on the cross and paid it for us, completely. Then He rose from the dead because He has that much power. Have you ever heard that?" "No, ma'am", he said. "The Bible says we are all sinners, we've all broken God's laws, but if we admit that to Him and ask His forgiveness, we can be right with God and live with Him forever." At that point, Judge hung up on me and I'm pretty sure I'll be taken off the list this time, but I am praying that Judge, David, and all the others making these calls will come in contact with bold Christians who will take the opportunity to share the gospel. I'm praying that the Word that never returns void will take root in Judge's heart and I'll meet him face-to-face in Heaven. What a picture of satan meaning something for harm, but God turning it completely around for good!

My husband was coming home friday nite, Labor Day weekend, he hit a flatbed semi on the side of the road. He never seen it there. After police investigation, we found out the driver pulled out in front of him. My husband got about an 8 inch slice in his scalp, lost a chunk of his knuckle in his index finger. His chest was pretty sore. Well, it's been a month and praise God he doesn't need plastic surgery on his hand. He's still sore and were watching for head damage. All glory to God!

I am writing this to encourage people to never give up. I have been unemployed since last Feb. but each and every time I have had a need, He has met that need in the most unexpected ways. I am still believing for a job to support myself and believe God has one out there for me, but I know that until I find that job God will supply all of my needs.

As I awoke yesterday morning I had no idea what my life would unfold on this regular Sunday morning. As I was preparing to go to church my phone rang. On the other line of the phone was my desperate, hopeless cousin crying telling me the Dr's told him she would die last night. I immediately felt the need to rush to his side and not talk about God's GREAT love, but show him God's love. I asked God to be the pilot of my vechile, to use my body, to show His great power through me because I had no idea what I would say when I would reach the hospital in Forth Worth. Can I tell you God is Amazing...He is a God of DETAIL. I asked him to allow for me to see my aunt alone just me and her. That he would give me the opportunity to share Christ with her and my family. My friend what I thought was a mistake lost in hospital...God had his own perfect plan. I came in through back side of hospital, but was directed to go up this ramp, etc. halfway through my destination I stopped in front of this door. I entered and asked the nurses station for my aunt. They told me: "You are standing right in front of her door" I was amazed, but knew God had set it up just like I asked Him to. I proceded to her room and their she was lifeless. As I spoke to her about the TRUE living God she woke up, she BELIEVED & accepted Christ as her savior. I then walked to the lobby shared salvation plan with my cousins and praise God 1 accepted. Later that day I had the priviledge to share God's love story and salvation plan with my uncle and he accepted Christ too as his savior. I am in awe of what God has begun in my family. Before I end my story and headed out one last visit by my aunt's icu room with my cousin. We walked in and my aunt asked me:" how does your husband look?" As I told her I would show her his pic she said NO hold my hand and asked me:"Is he a tall man with gray hair?" I said NO. She said well as you prayed for me ..I saw him and as you leaned to hug me - He gave you a hug. Then she told me:"I've seen this man before at a diffrent hospital when I woke up from a coma." I was startle, but I just smiled. Who did she see? Was it God or the holy Ghost. What happened last night at the hospital was nothing but God's supernatural that was seen and felt. Praise be to His Holy name.

Thank you for your prayers and the encouragement we receive from them.

Just a little story about my life and faith. Faith was never something I had much of for many years. I grew in faith over the years slowly then to a great extent over the past few months. I will say that this is due to God himself. I use to believe people could be radical about God and could talk too much about God though I believed. I no longer feel that way and know there is no way you can read too much of the bible; no way to talk about the Lord too much; no way to have too much faith in the Lord. I thank God today for the many blessings he brings me. Life is not perfect but my basic needs are met at this time. And God has made this happen through prayer and circumstances in life. I also use to believe that anyone who thought the devil could touch their lives ...well I thought they were crazy. I no longer believe this way and know that Satan can carry strongholds over us and can send spirits our way to persuade us and intervene the wrong way in our lives. However, I now know that Jesus Christ is the answer to all things including any evil forces who must flee from us in the name of Jesus.
September 03, 2013
I thank God for Henry and Tim. My husband and I work odd hours and listen to Henry all the time, we really enjoy all that he says. Also enjoy listening to Tim love the way he talks about his wife and grandkids and the music he plays. Your station is a real blessing to my family.
September 03, 2013
I must say that Jesus has blessed me. Even though I work and work sick, I have still been able to work the past few weeks since getting my new job. The Lord has provided for food in the house, bills to be paid, my children to have needs met, a job, and the ability to do that job. So I thank the Lord Jesus and all whom have prayed for me in this difficult time I have gone through the last few months. I do pray and continue to ask for prayer for my health that it will hold up to be able to continue to work and have financial needs met. Chronic illness makes it very difficult. But with Jesus all things are possible. Debra

A friend of mine just shared this great story...Triumph in Adversity! ---"I just spent time on the phone with a lady who shared how God blessed her with a divorce ... she spent years suffering emotional abuse & other wrongs. she said, "I am free, God doesn't want me to be afraid & I'm on an adventure now. God said He'll provide for me. Now I don't know what my day will hold, but that's OK because I'm overcoming." Wow!!!!
August 28, 2013
Last saterday my daughter called to say she was coming to get her son. she left home sever weeks ago to live with her new man and have been hanging out all hours of night at clubs etc under the cover that she was doing a good thing as a designated driver but not doing well as an actual mother. was very rude on phone to me and wife when we tried to discourage her from picking him up to take him somewhere we know there is drinking going on and not to mention cigrett smoking around him he has asthma and allergic to it. we had no choice but to let him go sice we have no legal custody of him.she picked him up at 4pm and was suppost to have him till sunday night we started praying about it and at 8pm she called to bring him back because her plans to leave him with a friend and her kids while she went to club fell thru . she was suppost to get him again sunday evening and her boy friend got sick so she only had him a short time then. we are continueing to pray for road block that will keep him with us and away from the things she does and hanges around with. its not a horrible situation but not a good one either. with her education and her abilitys she could do a lot better for herself if she would turn around and put her life back in gods hands instead of mans hands

I just have to say thank you to all who prayed for peace for my mother going into a nursing home. She was always so adamant that she never going into a nursing home." But I began to pray and asked for prayer from each of you, GOD IS SO AWESOME! When it came time to tell her what we had to do (only because of APS) a peace came over me. Mom was so understanding even though she just really didn't want to go, she was so sweet and said that she would give it a try for us. Although she cried when we first told her she was awesome when we took her in. She immediately began introducing herself to the other residents and wanted to be able to continue to visit with them She went through the rest of the day without getting too upset. Each time she said she just wanted to be at her home, she would follow up with "but I am going to give it a try". Even though I did not ask anything for myself, I know that you all must have. My sister and I both made it through getting her settled in without breaking down (of course we did after we left her, but that's okay because she didn't have to see it). She only saw us being update which made it so much easier for her to accept. I know that there will be some bad days, but I also know that I serve a God who can turn those bad days around in an instant. I thank you all so much for your prayers but mostly I thank God for loving me and being there for me always.

Today I got the grade for the exam I took July 1st. Finally, I passed!!!!!! It all had to be God because I walked out of that testing center thinking that it was a loss of another $200. Thank Jesus he passed my test for me!! Just have three more to go now.

I have recently had many praying for me. I have gotten a new job and I will start on Saturday. I also had problems with my paycheck cashing yesterday but with prayer, today it did cash. So now me and my family can pay our rent and bills. Praise God. But a new kind of fear has come over me for some reason and I pray for that fear to leave me. I know God did not intend for me to live life in fear. Maybe it is fear of change in a new job. But I have done this work for 21 years and I think I should be able to handle this ok. Thanks, Debra

thank you prayerworks... for this medium to pray for others. for this medium to stand with one another... in a show of faith and love and reliance on our heavenly Father... Heb 10: 19-25 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our boides washed with pure water. LET US HOLD UNSWERVINGLY TO THE HOPE WE PROFESS, FOR HE WHO PROMISED IS FAITHFUL. And LET US CONSIDER HOW WE MAY SPUR ONE ANOTHER ON TOWARD LOVE AND GOOD DEEDS. LET US NOT GIVE UP MEETING TOGETHER, as some are in the habit of doing, BUT LET US ENCOURAGE ONE ANOTHER -- AND ALL THE MORE AS YOU SEE THE DAY APPROACHING. I LOVE THIS!... the prayer works page gives me an opportunity to praise God for his mercy and grace. It gives me an opportunity to pray for someone in their time of need. It gives me an opportunity to pray aloud for someone that doesn't know me... but that someone is asking for a partner to stand in the gap with them... and to ask the heavenly Father to aid them. I LOVE this website. May GOD bless this medium and cause it to bring all PRAISE AND HONOR to Him... Whose mercies are new every day!

Thanks to all who prayed for our elderly, godly pastor who was being attacked left and right. The gossip and horrible rage around him seemed impossible, then after listing the request here, the origin of the gossip/attack was completely exposed!!! He is completely cleared as we knew he would be! He has been a hero to our family, has saved so many marriages, and prays all the time...thank you for serving this old saint who has given his ENTIRE LIFE for God and serving others....thank you, Lord Jesus!!!

I must thank KAVX for the encouragement and support provided to me each day. You works are good and the fruit of your works is shining.

You've been praying for my son who attempted suicide back in March. He went to church camp in South Tx and on the last night during small group, in front of his peers and other kids (he hates speaking in front of others) he told them what he had done and how he knew he had to get closer to God again, that he had gotten away from HIm. He had a rough first 2 nights of camp, and I had wondered if I needed to go get him. God gave me peace on Wed and then this happened on Friday. He has a long road to recovery though, but PRAISE GOD....I had been praying for a personal revival for him, and God answered. Please continue to pray for him as he learns to trust God and get closer to HIm. Thank you.

Yesterday was my typical Sunday, I had to work, I got off work at 2:00, but again I had to wait for a ride. I kept waiting and waiting and waiting, no call to say there was a problem or anything. GOD came to my rescue, he urged a customer that I had assisted to ask me why I was still there after his third trip to the store. He volunteered to take me home. I pray this man found the right media to do the job he needed done, but GOD used this child's problem to create a solution for another one of HIS children. Keep this in mind when you are facing adversity!

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer April, 2009. My doctor sent me to a specialist who did a biopsy and then told me I needed to get down to M.D. Anderson. I was devastated to say the least. M.D. Anderson is a very busy place. My first appointment was several months later. During that time, I had many discussions with the Lord. I asked many of my family and friends for their prayers in this matter. Some of which took the problem before their church for prayer. My first appointment was mainly blood work, a few scans, x-ray, and a new appointment for a 3D biopsy. The blood work, scans, and x-rays turned out "inconclusive", we must wait for the biopsy. Prayers continue on this matter while we wait on biopsy appointment. Biopsy appointment was disappointing to say the least; I was put under sedation and wheeled into surgery for the 3D biopsy only to wake up several hours later to find the equipment had failed. It had broken and must be replaced before we could continue. They would call me. More prayer as we await the "call" from the doctors. Six months later, we get the call, head to M.D. Anderson and have the 3D biopsy. Out of the Twenty-one biopsies taken, no cancer could be found. I was cancer free. Not because of anything a doctor or hospital had done, but because of prayer. Prayer does work! Because of a wise friends advice to let the doctors do what they think is best, but leave the healing to the Lord, I have returned to M.D. Anderson every six months for "follow up" as a precaution, and I remain cancer free. Praise the Lord!

Pam who was in a horrible accident in February with brain damage. She is doing very well all things considered... She has started reading her bible daily and going to church in the home where she is recovering. Pam is new in the Lord. Pray for her! I also wanted to update you on Pam's physical recovery. She still doesn't grasp a lot of things and almost reminds you of a little child. Her dad passed away on Dec 20th and she knows he isn't there anymore but doesn't have the capacity to grieve. My prayer is for Pam to recover completely and give herself to the Lord Our God and discover what he has in store for her. She is still stuck in the world of her drug friends. My prayers are for her to move past this so that she can grow. Thank you all for you continued prayers.

Just wanted to update all. Pam has come such a long way since her accident and is still in recovery. Her mind doesn't work the way it should since the injury. She still associates her self with the drug dealers that used her before. She only has contact on facebook but the one is trying to talk her into marrying her. If this would happen, he would turn her back on the streets to sell his drugs. Pam's father, Jeff passed away on Dec 20th and is now with our Lord. Continued prayers for Pam to make a full recovery and find peace and love in Christ.

Thank you all for your uplifted prayers for our daughter, Elora. We have now been at Texas Children's Hospital 8 days, and although exhausted, they are beginning to see the underlining issues threatening Elora's long-term health. Her beautiful spirit, created by her Creator, exudes joy...she lights up a room even when she is sick. We thought we had chosen a beautiful name for our baby years ago that we hoped she would fulfill, but it is obvious that "Elora" was written on our hearts for her because she would truly be used to bring God's Light into Dark Places. "My God is Light!" in Hebrew. I pray that during these rough and exhausting moments of living, our joy of being His will draw those around us out of the darkness that shields them from hope, and that they will take fresh steps toward trusting their Creator, Savior, Lord, and Friend. Thank you for your prayers. God moves mightily...even in the quiet of hospital rooms around 11pm.

He is eating well and is very bright eyed. He does not move his legs well and will have to have physical therapy to help him learn to use them. Thank you for all your prays. He has along road ahead of him, but as we know what is impossible to men is possible with God.

Our neighbor ran out of gas taking her children to school, and had asked to borrow our gas can. I offered to take the children to school and get her some gas on the way home. We got the children all loaded up in my pickup truck and my truck wouldn't start. My wife gave me a jump and I took the children to school and got the gas and my truck died when I made it home. I found out the alternator had went out on my truck, I called for estimates only to find it would cost over $300.00 to get the part and repair it. We did not have the funds to make this necessary repair. We sat down and prayed for an answer. God answers!!!! We made another phone call and found out within the last 3 years the alternator had been replaced and it was still under warranty and we could get a new one to replace the broken one and one of the men in our church called and said he could replace the part without charge. God is GREAT!!!

Benjamin's procedures went well on Thursday. The peg tube was inserted and the reflux 'fix' was able to be completed by laprascope (sp??); much less invasive. Josh texted me pictures of a beautiful, laughing baby. Priscilla is recovering, but desperately wants to go home. Hopefully, they will all be back together by the end of this week. Your prayers matter and they thank you for them. That is what gets them through all this. Bless you all, Laura Shrader

I requested prayer for Ben a few months ago and i thought i posted his awesome recovery. Our Lord has blessed him with health and he has been doing great since. I am thankful to the prayer warriors out there who do not cease in prayer to our Lord for healing, comfort, love, financial securities, loneliness, what ever the request may be. Thank you all so much for praying for those you do not even know. May God bring many blessings of love to you all the days of your life. :)

July 21, 2012
I have become a big fan of your station in the last few months, I was listening the other day and a Pastor was sharing a poem. It was about an Older man who went into this church on his lunch break everyday to say a short prayer, before returning back to work. The Priest was suspicious of him because of theft and the neighborhood; so one day he asked him what he was doing and he replied praying, and that he did not know much about prayer but he prayed "Hello God its me again just come to check in again today...." It broke the priest heart and he stopped and prayed the same prayer. Then for a few days the man did not come to the church and the priest found out he was in the hospital sick..... and so on. It touched me and I would love to share this with many more. Thanks Chris

My name is Rudy from Lufkin, Texas and several months ago I was a winner of a raffle that was setup at one the local 5K races. In the winners packet there were several CD's and other wonderful gifts. I just wanted to let you all know that since that day I have listened to one particular CD which is Casting Crowns and I cannot even express how big of a blessing it has been to me. I now put the CD on at the beginning of my day at my desk and I can feel my mood, and life situations become better and it pushes me to seek God more. The day of the race I was going through some difficult personal decisions and winning the packet and listening to the CD's I felt God calling me and letting me know HE was watching me and listening. I am an area Zumba Instructor and being inspired by God and Christian music really allows me to help others and to show Christ Love. Thank you again although it was months ago that I won that prize it still impacts me every day. Thank you so much.

Janice writes...Today my sister, Debra White was dismissed from Mother Francis Hospital to return home with medication changes only and a clean bill of health on the kidney. Apparently the kidney problem was just dehydration and once that was corrected, the kidney began to function as it should. Thank each of you for the many prayers lifted on her behalf. Our God is truly a healer as evidenced by the many miracles he has performed on behalf of my family over the last few days. Again, thank you for your prayers.

Please pray God's will in my life as I have a phone interview today and my second in person interview tomorrow. I currently have a job, but this job would better provide for my family and be very rewarding.

My sister in law says this morning on their regular commute, my neice was singing along to a song on KSWP in the back seat. And she said that when they arrived to the babysitter's house, she noticed my neice crying in the back seat to herself. When my sister in law asked my neice what was wrong, my neice said nothing was wrong. My neice said she was crying because she was singing the song on KSWP. My sister in law started to cry and realized that my neice had been touched by the Holy Spirit. And for my niece to be only 5 years old and cry while singing a song is amazing...

THANK YOU all who have prayed for my daughter and her many diseases- In June I took my daughter to a prayer/deliverance pastor who prayed for her healing, and so many symptoms were healed: visual problems connected to migraines - they are gone (black spots, weird lights, wavy lines in vision). THE MIGRAINES THEMSELVES are gone (they used to happen a few times a week!) A limp that she had because of crooked hips and a shorter leg, disappeared. Much chronic pain left - the whole right side of her body was ALWAYS in pain, but not now! Her digestion is the best it has been in years, and also, no more seizures! My daughter has been bed ridden on and off for almost 11 years. ... she seems to be experiencing increasing well being and healing each day...thank you all who prayed. We are amazed -- and praising the Lord. Please praise the Lord with us...if anyone would pray for her spiritual growth, I will thank you in Heaven...please pray that she becomes a student of the Word with a heart for worship...

I have become a big fan of your station in the last few months, I was listening the other day and a Pastor was sharing a poem. It was about an Older man who went into this church on his lunch break everyday to say a short prayer, before returning back to work. The Priest was suspicious of him because of theft and the neighborhood; so one day he asked him what he was doing and he replied praying, and that he did not know much about prayer but he prayed "Hello God its me again just come to check in again today...." It broke the priest heart and he stopped and prayed the same prayer. Then for a few days the man did not come to the church and the priest found out he was in the hospital sick..... and so on. Would one of you happen to have a copy of this or know were I could get a copy of this poem or happen to remember this segment of time? I'd say it has been about a week since I heard it and it touched me and would love to share this with many more. Thanks Chris

thanks for all the prayers, i requested prayer for me because i had lumps on my breast. when i went back for biopsy at first the radiologist could not find it, and then he finally did, but sorta. by the time i went into surgery the surgeion stopped within five minutes because he couldn't find it, and where there was once two, he could only find one. through it all my mother and me continued to have faith and believe that Jesus had me covered. i know that even though he chose not to remove them both, i am still his testimony that he can perform miracles in the midst of the storm. And the little size of a match head that was found was not cancerous. ALL PRAISES AND GLORY TO JESUS MY HEALER AND SUSTAINER. I encourage anyone who is praying for answers to just trust and believe that whatever happens Jesus has you.....and all sickness is not death......

Wonderful nurses, techs, respiratory therapists around the clock, lab techs/vampire crew!, and the best Doctors anywhere, ED physcians, Dr. Michael Huber was on call for my doc, Sean Moran, MD, until Monday AM, and Dr. Abraham Cheriyan pulmonologist!

The Holy Spirit convicted my 10yo last night. He had been saved for about 2 years now. It was heartbreaking and amazing at the same time. It was over something small. I explained what was happening to him and his heart and that this was something small. I told him there were going to be things that happened in his life that were not going to be fun but as long as he could keep that connection with God he would be okay. I reassured him that we loved him and prayed. It was completely unexpected, I was in awe. There was no doubt God moved in my son's heart. Thank you Jesus! Michelle B

You need to listen and trust that little person in your head. We admitted Emily to the ER yesterday with a debilitating head ache. Very migraine like, though we don't believe it was one. Tests ruled a brain bleed, infection and meningitis. Today she is home and seems much better. Thanks for your prayers! God is good!

I had an unspoken urgent prayer request today. I called the station and Wendy prayed for me over the phone. And no sooner did we hang up, I received a phone call, letting me know that everything was going to be OK. And God just kept taking care of things throughout the day. When I thought there wasn't a way, He made a way! Thank you Lord for Your prayer warriors!

Due to the antibiotics he took for his infection, he now has thrush from the antibiotics causing him to have high fever again. So thank you for praying for Ben and please continue to do so. God Bless you all for praying for him.

Over the last three years, my family has endured horrible circumstances from sex abuse to job loss. Listening to KSWP has totally changed my outlook on life and has my children singing daily. My four year old knows every song before they start singing, just by the beginning melodies. My two year old is following as well. My 10 year old loves your station and has now accepted Jesus into her heart. My husband and I listen when we are together but when he is alone, he doesn't listen all the time. I pray for major changes within him to get him through everything we have been through. Our ten year wedding anniversary is coming up and I know he will be a changed man. I pray everyday. I thank you for your station so much as well because without it, I would really feel lost. Your station means so much to my family. Thank you.

Christian music has ministered to my heart so many times in my life I cannot even count them, but I know of at least one time when the song was played because God wanted to lift a burden for me. I gave a child up for adoption long ago. I have beat myself up over the years wondering if I made the right decision. One day I was driving down the road feeling that condemnation again for the thousandth time when that song by Mark Schultz came on saying you gave everything to me. It really spoke to me what my heart had always hoped for that child. Thank you for your station. It does help anyone who listens on a regular basis and those who only listen occasionally. God is truely using this station in a mighty way. GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!!

I was struggling with depression, chronic suicidal thoughts, and alcohol abuse. I tried to stay busy all the time and turned to going out with friends and drinking as a temporary fix. Then I began to drink every day. I told everyone around me that I needed help that I wasn't happy. Finally at 4am I called my Mom to come get me and take me to the hospital or I wasn't going to be here in the morning. I had enough of life and I was done. I had lost all hope. After spending only a week in the behavioral medicine unit I began to seek God and praise him for all he has blessed me with. I gave him my stresses and He is my new addiction. God is good and He is my best friend. Thank ya'll so much for what ya'll do. Ya'll are a blessing to my life. I wake up to ya'll everymorning.

Praise God!!! He is merciful and good! Your prayers have been a great blessing to me because God hears and He also acts! I woke up in ICU after being on the ventilator, helping me breathe, for 11 days to find I was unable to use my right arm or my legs the strength had been zapped from them not being used. It's by God's good grace that I have been able to recooperate as quickly as I have. Jesus has held me up allowed my body to regain the strength necessary to function in this world. Again I praise God and His greatness!!!!

I lost my job as a teacher at the end of last year due to budget cuts. In October, thank God, I received a job not teaching, but still a job. I've longed in my heart to work in the classroom & with children, guess it's true what the Bible says, Delight yourself in the L0rd and He will give you the desires of your heart. I was offered a job as a teacher today!! Thanks for your job you do inspiring people to live for God and reminding us who is in control.

I have listened to 90.9 off and on for several years now, but on Jan. 1, 2012 I decided to take the 30 day challenge and I am so glad I did! I myself have felt peace and I have noticed the difference in my life because of it. What really made me sit back and want to say THANK YOU to 90.9 for all you do is the following: A couple of weeks ago I had to put my car in the shop for about a week and it cost more money than I had planned, and then last week the same problem came up and I knew the mechanic had just had a new baby and his older son had totaled the family vehicle so he was working on getting a new one driveable. I called just to let him know that I was having the same problems and to please let me know when he was able to get with me to see about correcting it. Had this happened two months ago I could have been upset and angry and demanding....I can not only feel the difference God has made in my life by I am seeing it in how I react to certain situations. While driving to my son's Cub Scout meeting on Monday night a friend actually commented on how she has noticed the difference in not just my attitude but in how I speak and do things. I was then able to tell her that it is due to me taking the 30 day challenge and letting God become the number one in my life, in all that I do, not just sometimes but all the time.

Jimmie Walton God has answered your prayers! Bill and I have prayed and asked the Lord to heal me completely and we've trusted in the faith of you all...our family and friends for your prayerful requests and good thoughts toward us. The c-scan shows that the benign tumor has not grown at all, and after other tests yesterday, which showed everything clear and healthy, the doctor says he doesn't want to see me for a year. So.....no surgery needed...PRAISE GOD!!! Thanks again for your prayers to our Heavenly Father!

I moved back to Nacogdoches in March of 2005 at which time I found KSWP & KAVX. I began listening the day I found them and have been listening ever since. In January of 2006, the 30 challenge was presented. At the time I giggled because I'd already been listening well beyond that, but began to consider how it was changing my life and continues still today. As a family we enjoy the music and my children enjoy Adventures in Odyssey. I keep informed in the political realm with Point of View, In the Market with Janet and Jay Sekulow. My husband & I have been blessed with teaching from Focus on the Family. There have been many times that we've been listening and the song we need the most or the message we need to hear is right there when we need it!! There have even been times that little joys have come from the most interesting of places: my son still says the "KSWP 90.9 Lufkin Nacogdoches" station recognition gives him a GOOD feeling and he's been saying that since he was 2; who knew! THANK YOU!

I had strayed away as my husband and I tried to live our lives planning to get reconnected to church "as soon as ..." (fill in the blank). In 2010, he became unhappy and left me and our children. I found strength in the Lord, returned to church and rebuilt my relationship with God. One of the things that mattered the most was positive encouragement, that came from KSWP. This is the only station I listen to!

A while back I asked for prayer for my son and the divorce that he was going through. Our prayers were answered because he got split custody, no child support, and gets to keep the house. Praise the Lord for his favor.

I I married my wife in the spring of 2010, when I became the step-father of two teenage step-daughters. These two girls have never had the guidance of a true father figure in their lives ever, which has given me the chance to bestow my own moral values on them. My step-daughters have spent their lives making their own mother feel bad for trying to tell them no when they are doing wrong. For a little background on my wife she was abused as a child, sexually and physically, which has left her with resentment towards her own mother, which makes her hesitant to discipline her children. I became the step-father of these children at a time where they were already rebellious and simply not wanting direction or guidance. My wife's oldest daughter and I have always had disagreements when she would back talk her mother and make her feel like she was a horrible mother, because she wouldn't bend the her will. This child has always controlled her mother with her actions, whether it was running away because we took her phone away for not following our house rules. This went on for months without help from local law enforcement. We cried out for help well over 10 times, and even went to a local judge for council. They simply told us that there was nothing that we could do until she was considered an adult. Of course this child progressed to being arrested at the age of 16 for theft and giving a false statement to a police officer. Things finally lead to us having to give her tough love due to her insubordination to our rules. She moved out in the tail end of October and soon called us telling us about how her friends just didn't have the money to pay rent. Feeling sorry for her we gave her over 200 dollars to make rent with. Three weeks later she told us that she was being evicted, so we consulted the apartment manager to see when the last payment was and I was in September, a month before we gave her the money to make rent. Shortly after we took her back because her mother couldn't stand to put her daughter on the streets, even if it was by her own choice; we were in the same old turmoil. Once she was back to staying with us again she resorted to pushing her mother's buttons again to get results according to her own agenda. Christmas morning I woke to the sound of screening and yelling because the oldest daughter didn't get as many presents as the youngest. My wife was on the kitchen floor crying, and I had had enough. I told her to get her things in much a more non-Christian way then I should have, but I had enough. This child has had a history of violence and assault which showed when I took it upon myself to remove her things from my home after her yelling and screaming over presents. My wife and I had recently went to our pastor Jeff Robinson to seek council and he referred us to the word, which clearly stated that if she did not want to follow our rules and try to be a part of our family then we had no choice but to let her try to make her own path. I know I did not go about the push for peace in my home the right way, but I was fed up with the psychological terrorism that she would impose on us for not letting her do as she pleased. When I put her things on the curb Christmas morning, she assaulted me. I turned around and she was running wide open at me with intent to hurt me. Out of instinct I put my foot up to stop her, basically doing the Hisemen with my leg. When the police showed up they told me I was a 26 year old mail, she was a 17 year old female and that she had a foot print on her stomach, "so turn around and put your hands behind your back". I spent Christmas day in a cold lonely jail cell. On January first my wife had a bad car wreck in a vehicle which we only had liability insurance on and it seemed that the world was against us. The weekend before Christmas, oud Pastor Jeff, gave an alter call after his sermon, and my wife and I came forward to start a movement towards living a more Christ like life. In the mist of all that was going on I had missed the Thursday and Friday before Christmas, and in that time someone had been lead to put a Christmas card on my desk with my name on it. When I opened it, it did not have the usual Christmas message of, a savior being born, three wise men or the bright morning star. The card was a message that struck me in the heart and made my eyes well with tears as I read, Blessed are those whom hunger and thirst for justice for they will be satisfied. Matthew 5:6 and I knew as sure as I was breathing that the one high God grabbed me by the seat of my pants and told me be quit, I am God, let your worries be my burdens and have faith. I am excited to type this e-mail for some odd reason, but any ways that's what I felt I needed to tell, kyle

The last few weeks I have really been struggling emotionally. It has just been a hard holiday season. I have been down and just dejected and frustrated with everything. I have been praying for God to show me where He wants me to go. The last few days have been by far the worse, I have been emotional to everything that is said to me. This morning every song that has come over the radio has spoken to me. The pressure that I have been under, I just feel lifted and so much better. I have listened to KSWP sporadically for the past few years but on the first decided to take the challenge and I must say that I can FEEL a difference, I LOVE peace that comes over me. I just want to say thank you for being here and this mornings topic and songs have hit right to the heart of things.

After my husband's death God promised me that through my faith my family would receive their salvation, and tonight my 33 yr old daughter called me and we took a journey down the Roman Road, Cahpter 10:6-13. She sincerely rededicated her life to the Lord tonight and I thank Him for keeping His word!

Jacob felt like he was in the wrong place and his years were being wasted. People often find themselves in jobs, careers, homes and even family arrangements that make them feel as if they are far outside of God's plan. The story of Jacob teaches us that God might place us in such situations specifically to bless us and work out His purposes. Jacob teaches us to be faithful wherever we find ourselves and to keep committing ourselves to the care of God. Tell your story on this page. What God has done for you! (PrayerWorks Prayer Team)

I asked you all to pray for me earlier in the year, I was layed-off from my job as a teacher. 6 weeks after this school year started, I began a new job! I am doing something completely different, having to learn alot, was a little upset then I read 2 Cor.12:9 & 10 where when we are weak God is strong. So, I realized it is going to be ok, because God is strong! Thanks for your prayers!

I started listening to this station periodically a few years ago, I have always LOVED it every time I have listened, this past Summer I started listening to KSWP/KAVX exclusively. The main reason I programmed these two stations into my radio in the car is because I heard my six year old son singing a not so nice song (it was about a man that had been abusive and the woman took a 12 gauge shot gun and shot him), I realized that I really needed to listen to music that I don't mind him singing. I listen to the station online at work and he was with me last week and he was singing along with the songs and my coworkers were amazed, that makes my heart smile. I have been listening to the sharethon this week and I have prayed and prayed and refused and hemhawed around about not making a faith promise. This morning I wanted to be at work early to get a head start on my day and I laid down and took a little nap...well why that nap did not make me late it put me behind the schedule that I had planned today. As I was driving to work I was listening to the radio and I came upon a wreck that had I left my house when I had planned to I would have been involved in it. I have a little Hyundai Elantra and it would have been between two full size pickups. A few miles on down the road there was a dead deer in the middle of the road....WOW how is that for God getting your attention! Had I not been "lazy" this morning I don't know what would have happened to me. I decided to make a faith promise today and I know that God will provide for me and make sure I am provided for. We truly serve an amazing and wonderful God.

Last year my unemployment was about to run out and I was deperate for a job. I had been on the search for over a year. Early June I decided I was going to put God first and read my bible every day at least one chapter. My unemployment was to run out on July 2, I started my job July 1st. This job has been more than what I could have ever asked for. It is what I went to college for and the firm is support the pursuit of my CPA. I am currently struggling with the study for the exams, but I know God will provide. God answers prayers in his time not ours, so we must learn to be patient.

Please pray for my friend, Nathan. He battles drug and alcohol Addictions. He has overdosed many times and also smokes, I love him and I am very worried for him.

Pray for us, but really let the chains be gone. Thank you!

Recently my husband had to have emergency surgery and was on a ventilator for 8 days and spent 12 days in icu . God is always working when least expect it because we were told that he would have to go to rehab maybe have a trach to help him breath and off of work for at least a year. The prayers went up in multitude and God answered, Mike is home and doing great. He has to have dialysis temporarely and will be off work for a year or better but he is HOME and God has given us a peace about the rest of what we face in this time . MY opinion is that God showed up and showed out in that ICU room and Praise be to Him for all that he has done in our lives

I'd like to ask for prayer for myself and my four children. I have been without work since September and have been looking for work desperately. I have had little luck finding anything within driving distance of my home. I am receiving unemployment benefits but this isn't enough to pay the bills and won't last much longer. I am literally at the point of losing my home, car, land...everything! Please pray that God will show me some direction in all this. I feel completely lost and have no idea what to do or where to turn.I know that God has a plan for our lives, and that He knows what we need even when we don't, but I admit I am so scared of losing everything..Please keep us in your prayers.

Hey all, I just wanted to give a praise report and thank God that the infection in my leg calf has subsided, and it doesn't hurt as much as it did. I still have the area that looks like bruising, but I'm praying and hoping that it will continue to get better as I get closer to my goal weight and, in the process, improve the circulation in my leg. Also ... to the prayer warriors out there who have been interceding on my behalf: thank you!

Recently I asked for prayer for Erin, my daughter that is addicted to drugs. She continues to denounce her sisters & I, but my Pastor says God must be working on something very big for her. The many many prayers are so comforting and appreciated, you can never know how much it means knowing that so many are praying for her. Thank you all! God bless you!

My mom, Sharwon Ivy, suffered a massive stroke on June 12th. God has been so great to us during this time. Prayers from family, friends, and strangers have given us strength during this difficult time. Mom has been moved to rehab, she is trying to speak, has said a few words, her personality is back and she is having feeling return to her right side. We are grateful to the medical staff working with her and grateful to all those praying for her recovery. All the glory belongs to our Father. Thank you God for your hand of healing on my mom. God bless each of you reading this. Please continue to pray. Prayer does Work!!!!

I just wanted to thank those of you who prayed for me toward the end of May when I had a major paper I was working on for one of my graduate English classes at SFA. God answered all of our prayers. Given my limited time and the circumstances, I think that I wrote the best paper I could have possibly written. Although I didn't get the two As I was hoping for, I still wound up with a 3.5 GPA last spring (an A and a B). Thank you Lord for keeping me from making another C! That would have resulted in me having to go to grad school even LONGER before I could get my master's degree. Also, thank you for the prayers that have been sent up in regard to my health. There still hasn't been a noticeable change on that front, but it hasn't seemed to have gotten a lot worse either. I'd also like to thank God for the opportunity to write and get paid for it again. I recently started doing freelance stories for The Lufkin Daily News.

Previously I had asked for prayer for my husband as he was seeking a promotion that he has been working for a very long time. He is fully qualified and very deserving of this promotion and would be excellent at the position, however, he was not selected. The position was instead given to someone with no qualifications what so ever. This person has come in as the head of this department and demoted everyone who applied for the job against him, and/or spoke out against his getting this position. We now have a grievance filed against the employer and are awaiting a response. I know that everything happens according to God's will and I can see where He is teaching my husband and I some very valuable lessons. I just pray that things are corrected or fixed so that my husband will no longer have to work in this hostile work environment and he is either promoted which should have happened in the first place, or allowed to retire and retain his full benefits of retirement. Thank you so much for your previous prayers for him to receive the promotion in the first place. Now I ask for prayers for the both of us to keep God first and most important in our lives and to use these lessons we are learning to bring others to Jesus and to bring God glory and praise! Thank you so much for your prayers.

So this past summer I was really lookin forward on going to a family reunion in Indiana, one, because it would get me outta the house, and two because It gets way to hot in Texas during the summer. One week during the summer my phone had broken and we went to Austin for a week because a family friend had a gymnastics competition. During that time nobody had told me that my nanny had droven past my house and was planning on picking me up, but I wasnt home and didn't find out until a few days later. I moped for the first few days because I had really been looking forward to the trip for a few months, At the moment I didn't realize that God had way bigger plans for me, bigger than I could ever possibly imagine. After we got back to my hometown a few days later I went to Victory Camp which is a church camp that I hadnt been to for 4 years due to me moving around. At first I seriously did not want to go, I just wanted to go home and mope.. I got to camp the first day and met some friends and started loosening up. I've always believed that God sent his son formo Heaven to die for our sins by my life wasn't proving that at all. By the 3rd day of camp I had just totally given it all to God and decided that I was so tired of taking that wrong road when I knew what God had wanted me to do. Since I've made that decision so many things have happend in my life, I've met some amazing Christian friends, I've gotten to teach a week-long bible club at Sinclairs' orphanage, I've gotten to teach circle clubs and Im in Homeland missionaiirries. Im getting to witness to my friends and family. Im not saying that my life is perfect, because trust me its not. God never said that life was going to be perfect but sometimes when the times get hard you just have to hold on and pray like you've never prayed before. So I guess what I'm trying to say is sometimes when we don't get our ways we act like its the end of the world, but really its happening for a reason and because God has bigger plans for us.

I am so grateful to our glorious God and all of the prayers for my daughter and her unborn child. The aversion procedure to turn the baby around while still in the womb was succussful though very painful for my daughter. Her doctor and nurses told me "She's tough" to have gone through that. She had a healthy baby boy this week. 8 pounds 1 ounce and 21 inches long. She did require a c-section because the baby's heart rate dropped every time she would push. Turned out the cord was around his neck, but God guided the decisions and skillful hands of the physicians and nurses to bring this beautiful miracle into the world safe and healthy while keeping his mother safe as well. He had an ultrasound of his kidneys at two days old and there were no abnormalities as previously seen when he was in the womb. Praise God! Thank you again to all those who prayed for my daughter and her baby. God gave us a beautiful miracle, a healthy son.

Husband's change towards his deliverance and my change in trusting him more and not myself.
April 19, 2011
I have been praying for a long time for my husband to turn his life around and rededicate his life to God. My husband has never been a bad man, never beaten me or our children, never mistreated us. He has always been very good to his family. Through his type of work, over time of not serving our Lord, he became hard hearted, as did I since we were not attending a church anywhere, and not taking time for God. I still prayed, and asked God for direction, but I never stopped long enough and focused just on having a conversation with God to hear his direction. We felt obligated to one particular church because it had been a part of my husbands family since it originated. His grandmother was one of the founders. However, over the years, I never really felt the Holy Spirit touch me there. So, after many years of being out of His service, I started attending a different church, and I immediately felt like I belonged there. I have said many times that as soon as I walked through the doors I heard that still, small voice telling me "Welcome Home my child, welcome home". I immediately started asking my husband to go with me. He promised that he would go to church with me sometimes but for me not to push him to move his letter and join another church. I said okay. So I would ask on Sunday mornings as I was getting dressed if he were going, sometimes the answer was "I don't know", sometimes it was "no", and other times it was "maybe". He would never tell me, "I'll be there" Two weeks ago, I asked him if he were coming to church, and he said that he would be there for church but he wasn't going to make it to Sunday School. I said OK, gave him a smile, and left for SS. Well, when church time rolled around, he didn't show up. I was upset, of course, but I could hear God telling me not to be angry or pushy with him, there would be a time that was right to talk to him. So, when I got home I just asked him why he didn't come. Well, it turns out that our one bathroom was occupied by one of our family members getting ready for work for about an hour, which kept him from finishing getting ready since his closet is in our bathroom!! I just said that was alright, maybe next Sunday. There has been a lot of turmoil with his job lately and we don't know yet what is going to happen to it, but I have been praying for my husband to turn his life around, back toward God and serving Him. This past Sunday, same routine. I was getting dressed for Sunday School, and asked him if he was planning to come to church and he said "yes, he was coming". I just prayed silently "ok God, He needs your help to get him there". Well God got him there. During my SS class, we had more testimonials and prayer requests than a lesson, which was a very good lesson in itself. My very special request was for everyone to please remember my husband, with his job situation, for him to return to the church and the service of God. For him to realize that he needed God in his life" To back up just a bit, the previous night, as we lay in bed reading (me) and him trying to go to sleep, I mad a simple statement to him. I told him "You know the only thing that is going to help with this situation (his job) is to give it to God." He said he had done that. And I told him but I felt like maybe God was wanting both of us back where we belonged, in church worshiping and praising Him. And then I told him, God wasn't going to step in on his behalf until he was doing what God asked and that I just felt like right now we needed to be involved in our church, he needed to be there, and we needed to trust God to handle everything for us. I told him all this worry and stress, over finances, job, health, we just needed to hand over to God. He told me yeah, I was probably right, then turned over and went to sleep. I prayed for God to touch his heart and let him realize that he needed God back in his life for the guidance and wisdom of what to do about his job. The next morning, this past Sunday, he was there for church! That was half the battle I felt. At the end of the service, our pastor had us all sitting down, heads bowed , eyes closed, and he asked us each to stand as we were ready to do what God was asking of us and work for Him. Very shortly after the song started, I stood. I did cheat at one time and open my eyes to see my husbands hands clenching the pew seat in front of him, and suddenly he stood up! And he didn't stop with just standing to serve, he walked that aisle, and rededicated his life!! I can't begin to explain how I felt. I just kept thanking God for this, praising Him, thanking Him. I felt like just simple thank yous to God were not enough but I kept saying, thank you Lord, Thank you Jesus. This has definitely been a prayer answered and I do believe we have more answered prayers to come, in God's time and according to His plan for us. Thank you Lord for answering prayers. Thank you first of all for giving us the opportunity to come to you in prayer with our shopping list of requests, some of them I know are silly, such as the prayer to make me skinny! LOL, But the real, heartfelt prayers, serious prayers, "praying without ceasing", I thank you so much for hearing us Lord and for answering us. I thank you Lord for giving my husband just the right nudge that he needed to make that first step. Lord, I thank you for my husband and how hard he works for our family. I thank you for the kind of man he is, a man of hard work, strong faith, and integrity and honesty. I thank you for the events of Sunday Father and I am so thankful that your spirit was present at that service and it was felt by so many different people! I thank you Lord for my husbands commitment to return to service for you. And Father, I ask one more thing. I pray that you would do the same thing for each of my children. My daughter attends on occasion, but being the mother of four, it can be difficult getting everyone dressed as well as yourself. My son and DIL who are staying at my house temporarily, help them to see that they need to be serving you and raising their son in church. I pray that you will touch my son's heart who lives less than 5 miles from our house, yet because of a silly issue, which I have tried to resolve, we have not seen him or our granddaughter since before Christmas. Father just hammer into his heart that he needs to return to service. Touch the heart of his wife, who has never served you. In her own words she told me once "we have never really been church people". Help me to talk to her and give me the words to say. Lord let me know when the time is right to speak to them. And, finally my last son. Father I thank you for helping him to find a job! Another answered prayer on Sunday. I also pray for his return to your service. Let him see that being a Christian is not a silly or "uncool" thing, but it is the ONLY way to live your life today, trusting in Jesus. Finally, Father, I thank you for Jesus and for His sacrifice on the cross, so that I may have everlasting life in eternity with God. There is no greater gift this Easter season than to have my husband rededicate his life and now we can jointly serve you Lord, and follow the path you have for us together. Thank you Lord for everything. I ask you to forgive me of my many sins, Lord. And I ask you for some sleep before my grandson wakes and is ready to start the day!! Thank you Lord, for this Easter week and the celebration of it. The remembrance of what Easter is really all about. I know the typical statement at Christmas is "Jesus is the reason for the season" but people tend to forget that statement applies here as well, even more so!! Thank you Lord, and I thank you especially for my husband. I ask you to take control of his job situation as only you can and your will be done. I love you Lord, and I pray these things in Jesus precious and holy name, AMEN.

I was driving home from what I had referred to all day as "the worst day ever." Every thing that could possibly go wrong, did that day. The radio in my car never leaves 90.9. I cranked my car and went for the volume knob. I just wanted silence on the way home. It only took about 30 seconds of driving for God to tell me that I NEEDED to turn it up. He knew (and always knows) exactly what I needed to hear. The Casting Crowns' song "Glorious Day" was just beginning. As I listened to the words, I couldn't keep from crying. I had to pull over on the side of the road. On the shoulder of a busy highway, I raised my hands and praised the God that is coming soon! The worries I have from day to day, even on the "the worst days ever," are no big deal. The important thing is one day He is coming. What a glorious day that will be indeed!

I recently visited my doctor for what I thought was an easy diasnosis, to discover it wasn't at all what I had assumed the diasnosis would be. I proceeded to my car where I cried and prayed for strength and healing. I then composed myself for the drive back home. As I was beginning my destination home, the song "Stronger" by Mandisa began to play and as I listened I knew it was God speaking directly to my heart and giving me strength with each word being sung directly to me. I have been an avid listener and fan of KSWP 90.9 for many years now, you will always find uplifting, inspirational music playing in my car, in my office and even while I'm at home surfing the net. Thanks be to God for the strength he has given me and inspiration and ministery your radio station brings to so many listeners!

Jesus said, "Go and tell John (others) what you have seen and heard: the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the good news (the Gospel) preached to them." Luke 7:22

Throughout my life I have been blessed in so many ways. But throughout my teenage years, I got away from the church (Not as much as a loss of faith, but more of a "too busy with school and activities to go to church."). Then I got the ultimate blessing: a family. I have an amazing husband and a beautiful daughter. I recently got accepted to SFA's nursing school and began driving to Nacogdoches almost everyday from our home outside of Carthage. That is when I discovered this radio station. For a while I had been wanting to go back to church but had never had the will power. I was scared of the judgemental people who would look down on me for not having been in so many years. 90.9 gave me the courage and desire to go back. I'm Catholic and my husband is not but he decided to convert so I can go back. He was never raised in any church so he didn't mind doing this. The first day we went back, it was somewhat akward. But then we talked to the priest about getting my husband converted, our marriage blessed in the church and getting our daughter baptized. He welcomed us with open arms and didn't judge us at all. It was so refreshing! We are now going to church regularly and are in the process of getting everything the way it should be. I listen to 90.9 everyday in my car and on my computer when I'm working on homework. It's my solid place to stand. When I feel like everything else is crumbling from under my feet, I can turn it on and find peace. This has helped me so much, to be a better wife, mother, student, nurse, and all around better person. I finally found my way home and God has welcomed me back with open arms. Thank you KSWP for giving me my life back! Since then I have seen God work in miraculous ways. Just the other day I was doing clinicals at the hospital when I got nervous about having to do a procedure. But the reason why I was nervous was because it was going to be on a mentally retarded man. I felt horrible that I felt that way but I couldn't help it. Just when I thought I wasn't going to be able to handle it, I got visited by a real life angel. I was standing in the hallway outside the room when an elderly man in an electric wheelchair came by, handed me a sheet of paper and smiled at me. I started reading the paper and it was a scripture and prayer about treating everyone equally and how He wants everyone to love others and treat them with respect the way He would, no matter their differences. It almost brought me to tears. Here I was, worried about helping this man because he was different than me. I have never felt so ashamed of myself. Right then and there I made a vow to myself and to God to always treat people with the love and care they deserve, no matter their differences. I am so glad to have God back in my life!

I was at the end of my rope with God. But in His awesome, faithful, longsuffering and total love He brought me back right before my best, closest friend of 25 years passed away. I don't even want to think of where I would be right now if God hadn't been right there at the right time to woo me to do the right thing. I am closer and more full of Him now than I ever have been. He is a FAITHFUL, ever so loving God that will pull us out of the deepest pit....even if we put ourselves there. Praise His Holy Name!

I just had to share my "God Moment" that happened yesterday. A young lady that I had not seen in some time dropped by to see me. She was from our youth group from our former church. I had seen her through the years from a distance and knew she was not living her life for the Lord. She shared yesterday how she had just given birth but her baby was still born. I sensed she was hurting but did not know what to say. As she told me of her current hobbies I took her to my work room to show her my new project. I had left the radio on KSWP and as we entered the room the very song SHE used to sing in church was playing, the song, My Redeemer Lives by Nicole C. Mullen. We both felt the presence of God and it opened the door for me to encourage her to not lose faith in God and to know He still has a plan for her life. I thank God for that moment. It could never been orchestrated any better.
