Your Prayers Needed!

During our last busy day of recording Joni and Friends radio, I turned my script and … in between pages, I found a heartfelt note of heaven-sent encouragement from a former Cause 4 Life intern, Jessica (pictured on the right). She wrote: “Praise God that you are still able to record radio. Praying today for sound minds, open hearts, patient words, clear breath and energy for you, Joni!” Oh my goodness, with over 80 radio programs to record that day, you can just imagine the smile that landed on my face when I came upon Jessica’s note!

God says in Jeremiah 31:25, “I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.” It's how God used Jessica's prayers and friend, I'm convinced He'll use your prayers to do the same for tomorrow’s Radio Day. You know the drill: a good night sleep, clear voice, strong lungs, energy and Holy Spirit empowered programs. The whole team and I are so grateful for your prayers… they really do make all the difference!

Thank you for this ministry. What a blessing it has been for me that God has led me into your ministry years ago. I learned that God uses those who suffer and gives us a purpose in spreading the good news of Jesus Christ through intersessions and prayers, and being able to continue to smile because our joy is genuine, and our songs of praise glorify God. Countless times I have listened to this radio page during those times when kidney failure (twice transplanted) puts my body in bed, but my heart and mind were encouraged to sing along with you during those times you share a song, or pray with you to reach into the dark corners of this world to bring a ray of hope to others who need to hear the good news of Christ. Joni, I will certainly remember you in my prayers not only for that extra strength you need on these recording days, but those times in the middle of the night when I may be awake on a particular painful night. When you may be having a tough night yourself in you own bed trying to sleep, someone somewhere is keeping you in prayer. Blessings!
