Stories of Answered Prayer:
Hope and Joy Now!: I grew up in a religious family and was abused by my mother for years. I had nightmares, was in depression, and suffered multiple physical ailments. Even though I was finally able to get out of that sphere of family abuse, I continued to live with guilt and condemnation as I believed I had been a bad person. God has rescued me! I immersed myself in the gospel of grace and learned that I am accepted and loved by God! I no longer have nightmares or depression, and I have been healed of my physical ailments. I am closer than ever to my husband & son and I now live life with so much joy and hope.

SFA Band will make an appearance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) – Donna McCollum
For the first time in Stephen F Austin State University’s history, the Lumberjack Marching Band is going to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The marching down New York City streets is the easy part. The more difficult challenge is getting everybody there and keeping them together and on schedule.
By the sound at the SFA Lumberjack Marching Band’s last practice before the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the band is in tune with performance responsibilities.
Where a bit nervousness can be found is watching band director Dr. David Campo go over [more]


God is Good

I am a horseshoer by trade. Some of the horses I work on are very dangerous. So,my wife and I decided to pray scriptures over me before I leave for work. Recently, the Lord saved me from a potentially serious accident when I was shoeing a very large horse during a heavy downpour. I was working on a horse’s hind feet. The owner’s wife walked in with her umbrella open. As she set iit down facing the horse. The horse had an explosive reaction with a kick. It threw me across the barn. Wow, I suffered no injuries anywhere. The following day I returned to horseshoeing as usual.


Keep me in your deepest prayers that I can be spiritually strong enough to show my family what God has done in my life & what he can do in their life if they would only believe also that the spirit of God will be a ever burning flame in my heart & soul that I can go out to be the light & salt of the earth to all the lost people in a dark world that we all live in these days & times!!!

Stop & Smell By Bryon Mengle

We live in a world where time is Scarce. Everyone – speedy cars, quick meetings and fast food. What if each day, we took a time out – pausing to account for every minute. Then in an effort for expediency and efficiency focus one task til it is done, he moves quickly to the next leaving little to no downtime. It’s to this end that golfer Walter Hagen may have coined his infamous reminder, “Remember to stop and smell the roses.”

So, how can we combat the pressure of moving at the world’s pace? I would offer two things:

1. Don’t let To Do lists and challenges consume you. Control what’s in your control … and the rest, as your Frozen-loving daughter could tell you, “Let it go.” Matthew 6:34 says, “Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

2. Simply stop … physically, emotionally and spiritually, and in that moment, key into what the Psalmist wrote in 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God.”

Life moves at a break-neck speed … but we aren’t called to live by the world’s standards. So, go ahead … be still and stop and smell the roses.


Chapped lips, dry hands, sinus issues- it’s all happening thanks to the changing weather. Take a look at the end-caps the next time you’re at a drugs store: lotions, lip balm and Breathe Rite strips are on sale, and let’s not forget the tissues. ‘Tis the season for…

God loves to use ordinary people like you! And He loves for you to do Extraordinary Things!

Extraordinary Story:
In 1986, Steven McDonald was a young New York City police officer. While patrolling Central Park, he and his supervisor questioned three teenagers whom they suspected of stealing bicycles. One of the teenagers, 15-year-old Shavod Jones, pulled a gun on McDonald and shot him three times. Doctors were able to save his life, but the incident left him paralyzed and in need of a respirator to breathe. At the time of this heartbreaking event, McDonald and his wife, Patty, had not yet reached their one-year anniversary and were expecting a child.

It was suggested to Mrs. McDonald that she put her husband in a home, but the McDonalds stayed together through thick and thin. In spite of everything that had happened, Steven decided that revenge was not the answer. Rather than hold a grudge, he forgave the boy who shot him. McDonald’s forgiveness of Jones was so complete that he attempted to correspond with Jones while he was in jail serving his sentence. The two men wanted to work together to promote forgiveness and non-violence, but sadly, this was not to be. Only three days after Jones was released from prison, he was killed in a motorcycle accident.

McDonald did fulfill his own mission though, traveling to various speaking engagements to promote forgiveness, peace, and non-violence. ListVerse.

Romans 3:23: For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.


The Power of God!
Heavenly father , I ask you in the name of Jesus to release a financial miracle in my life and in my ministry .. God place your angels to open the doors of finances in my life.  Open of heaven above me , send your rains of blessings upon my life and my ministry ..  In Jesus mighty name .. Amen

Remember My Family in Prayer!

The Power of God thru Radio!
I cannot even begin to explain the power of KSWP radio. I have listen to this station for years. When I lost my son in 2009 the music was part of my healing of the grief of loss. What a huge blessing it is to have an Awesome Radio Station. Thank You.

Flashback to 9-11!
I’m still trying to get a handle on the news of what happened in Paris last Friday. I had flashbacks to 9-11 and the devastation and utter disbelief in the unfolding of events. It sometimes make me fear for my family. Evil exists on Earth but God is stronger. I need that huge reminder because as most humans do I sometimes give in to worry and anxiety. Thank you for praying for me and my family.
————Good Friends Response——
You are not alone! Your fellow Americans and all who share this earth know how you feel! In our reading comments and reactions, your prayer follows the thoughts of many.

Now is not the time to despair. Now is the time to ask God to strengthen our faith, to move you and each of us beyond feelings and into movement because we trust Him and fully, sincerely, confidently know that His ways are THE answer to all that ails humanity. (If the world embodied the Sermon on the Mount, all our lands would be healed.) We know it. We believe it. We know that God is big enough and good enough to save us down here in this broken place, and we are actually Plan A to deliver His hope and love.

God, here is our faith. Make it stronger and use it for good and justice.”

How do you let your light shine in adversity?
