We just celebrated our 25th anniversary. We started the radio broadcast on January 8, 1990. We ask you to join with us in our prayer of thanksgiving for all those years, and even more importantly, for all the hours of the relationships this ministry has experienced with its listeners. Those kinds of relationships can only be found in the ‘oneness’ of God. And while we may not know each other completely, we know each other by that Spirit that lives within us all. That’s what has united this radio station and you our listeners; a common heart for worship and praise to our common Father, Son and Spirit. You are welcome to join with us in our prayer and our anticipation of the future of the Gospel Message over FM 104.5:
Father, we thank you for stepping into your creation. Thank you for turning over every rock to search us out.
Thank you for knowing how earth smelled, knowing how it tastes, and knowing many times how it can hurt.
Thank you for knowing the pain of a scuffed knee.
Thank you for understanding how it feels to be rejected and betrayed, having been rejected by your closest, your own.
Thank you for having felt what it’s like to be misunderstood, to be falsely accused, and to know the pain of a broken heart.
Thank you for forgiving so much and loving so much more. Thank you for knowing the many reasons for our frustrations having experienced those moments yourself.
Thank you God for not looking at the many who would not accept your Grace and instead providing a Way for any who would say Yes.
You Lord have been tempted in all things just as we are and have been untouched by each. Thank you for stepping into our world and holding on to us, while at the same time, we are not very pleasant people to hold on to.
Father, we are so thankful that you cared enough to experience the world’s system and know exactly, not only, how we feel but knowing also how to heal us, that you loved us enough to do more than help us, but also deliver us.
Thank you for whispering in our ear when we fear. Thank You for meeting with us in those things we fear the most and make that a holy place because we met you there.
Thank you Father for not leaving us the way you found us.
Thank you for being abused, damaged and shunned on our behalf.
Father I pray that Your Kingdom live through us to others.
We recognize Your Peace, which sets us free to care, be brave, think of others and gives us the ability to love.
It’s amazing to us that You permit us to know You, and more amazing that You know us and accept us in Your most unusual way.
Father, thank You for permission to feel terrible sometimes and yet, because we truly believe, You help us through those feelings.
Thank you for not running away from your creation in the Garden of Eden but ran toward your creation. You did not give up on us. Actually, choosing to do something about us rather than lose us.
Thank you for your words of encouragement set in Your letter for us.
Thank you God for patiently waiting for us to change. Waiting for us to accept Your Love.
Thank you God for hearing us pray.
What a purposed and unchanging God you are.
Now Father, by your Spirit and because of your Son, move in us. We permit you to walk through our lives and disturb our worldly comfort and bring real Comfort, Real Peace. We pray that Your Words change our Invironment, our hearts, so that we might be able to stand against what comes against us to destroy the great price you have paid to simply be with us.
We are so grateful for the time, the blessings of having found each other through this thing we call WBVN. Amen.
We came in January 1990 knowing our listeners were special because of what they have inside, what’s been placed within you: the Spirit of Christ. That is a common genealogy with us all. And, I know this is hard to believe, but God thinks you’re special, just as you are. He died for the opportunity to have a caring relationship with you, truly an amazing grace! His promise is to fill the earth with Himself, that every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that He is. It’s been fun and meaningful to have that happen for all of us for the past 25 years. Let’s do it again!
