National Day of Prayer- Thursday, May 5th
Carter Conlon special

Join us on Thursday, May 5th @ 11 AM as Pastor Carton Conlon helps us mark this year's National Day of Prayer event by reminding us that an effective prayer life isn't simply the "lay-me-down-to-sleep" kind-- we need to practice the power of prayer that literally transforms lives. Pastor Conlon speaks from experience. At age 24, suffering panic attacks, he believed on the Lord. Taking his Bible and opening it to the only verses he knew, he prayed and trusted God to take away his fear. God not only did that but He instilled a lifelong passion for prayer that is the hallmark of Times Square Church and Pastor Conlon's ministry. Listen to “Prayer That Can Move Mountains” on Thursday, May 5th at 11:00 a.m. on KJOL.

One Cry Prayer Summit

The fifth annual OneCry live broadcast will take place is coming on the National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 5 from 6-8 PM on KJOL. Tune in for worship, testimony, short messages and powerful prayer from the stage and with the radio prayer team at Moody Radio. Speakers include David Platt (Radical), Freddy Washington (Brooklyn Tabernacle), Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, Crawford Loritts, music from Elevation Worship and more.

Mother’s Day Special-
Friday, May 6 @ 11 AM on KJOL

Prayer That Moves Heaven

What if, this Mother's Day, every mother in America made a commitment to pray daily for her children?  And what if every woman in America prayed in such a way that Heaven is moved and our nation is changed? In this Mother's Day radio special, Anne Graham Lotz is joined by her youngest daughter, Rachel-Ruth Wright as they share the impact of God's Word and prayer in the recent loss of Anne's husband, Danny Lotz. Both mom and daughter reflect on the enormous influence Anne's mother, Ruth Bell Graham, had in prayer on their lives by as well.  Anne concludes by encouraging women to pray in such a way that Heaven is moved and our nation is changed! Hear “Prayer That Moves Heaven” Friday, May 6th at 11:00 a.m. on KJOL.

From The Manager’s Desk-
Almost There!

Ken AndrewsWe are oh, so close to fulfilling our need in Sharathon 2016 through "Post" Sharathon! Hopefully in the next few weeks our need will be met and we can move on as Summer approaches with a very busy season ahead. If you have not made a Faith Promise to KJOL for the upcoming year, please pray about that, and - if the Lord so directs -please do that soon! Remember, you can make your commitment online at www.kjol.org and even donate directly now by credit or debit card. (Just look for the "DONATE" button on the website.)

We are coming into the season where maintenance and vacations will take a lot of our time, and we would appreciate your prayers. We need to take care of some issues at our Delta site, as well as deal with a serious (very serious) lighting strike at our Paonia translator location. We are now working to repair and restore service. Our first step will be to try to restore service temporarily at a lower power while repairs are being done. Please pray - this will not be cheap fix! Also pray for our other sites during this time of year as it's the season for weather related "incidents" that can keep us very busy (and be quite costly.)

But now, some good news! We were able to recently purchase an FM translator license for Delta! The FCC has allowed AM stations to acquire these translators to function as fill-ins, and this new license will be a fill-in for KJYE-AM. The new translator will provide FM coverage of local Christian radio for Delta. More good news! We were able to procure a grant that substantially covers the cost of the license and equipment needed. Praise the LORD! We are not sure yet as to when we will be able to build, but will keep you posted!

Finally, in the aftermath of Sharathon, we have received many kind letters and notes of appreciation for the ministry of KJOL. I cannot begin to express what that means as we co-labor with you for the Gospel. It is very humbling to hear these words of appreciation and we count it a privilege to serve you through Christian radio. We do not take lightly this privilege! We continue to covet your prayers as we share the Message the world so desperately needs to hear. Thank you!

Kurt’s Music Notes-All About Worship Connects Worship Leaders and Worshippers

All About Worship is a new online resource for worship leaders, worship teams, and songwriters.  Even if you’re not one of those people, there are two bonuses for the rest of us:
1) lots of great new worship music
2) worship songs that ordinary people can actually sing

AllAboutWorship.com features podcasts and articles by musicians you probably recognize:

  • Paul Baloche   (Integrity Music)
  • Jason Ingram   (Chip’s son)
  • Glenn Packiam   (Desperation Band, Colorado Springs)
  • Zealand Worship   (Phil Joel, formerly of the Newsboys)
  • Richie Fike   (Colorado Springs)
  • Vertical Church Band   (James MacDonald’s church)
  • Christy Nockels   (Passion Worship)

Last week, All About Worship held the first of two national conferences designed to encourage and inspire worship leaders (the second one is in Phoenix in November).  Songwriters are continually  sharing new songs with the AAW community, and a new album of those songs has just been released:

“My Pursuit”
All About Worship

AAW president Michael Farren (formerly of “Pocket Full of Rocks”) is the worship pastor at Gateway Church in Franklin, Tennessee, which is kind of the mecca of contemporary Christian music.  He says “My Pursuit” was created for worship leaders with one thought in mind: “Can I lead this on Sunday?”  He says these are “songs that we hope will help worship leaders be better shepherds and pastors.”

KJOL has started playing songs by some of these new AAW worship leaders, including Benji Cowart and Corey Voss.

Integrity Music has teamed with AAW to create a companion website WeAreWorship.com the provides chord charts, song resources, and devotionals, plus a companion songbook.  Each week, We Are Worship releases a free song available to download along with a free “hymn” (the modern kind).  Recent releases have included Desperation Band, All Sons and Daughters, Gateway Worship, and Paul Wilbur.

“Forever Good”
Paul Wilbur

Speaking of Paul Wilbur, you know him as the Messianic worship leader who sings “Days of Elijah” and “Stand Up and Give Him the Praise.”  Paul’s new album is described as “Paul like you’ve rarely heard him before! ‘Fresh’ and ‘youthful’ are responses we are hearing from those who have heard this latest Integrity release.”  Indeed, you may not recognize him on “Forever Good” when you hear it on KJOL!
