Prayers Please

Radio Recording Day

Sometimes while recording radio programs, my friend Rainey ‘helps’ my diaphragm by squeezing me around the middle so I can breathe better. It is especially helpful when I am singing. As I think about it, I’m amazed at how many things need to fall into place to assure a successful radio recording day. But God has been faithful and that’s why I am so thankful for your prayers – your intercessions are the most important part of a fruitful day of recording! There’s not a day I wheel into the studio that we do not ask for your prayers, and God has been answering your petitions for a long time (the month of May will mark our 35th year of radio… incredible!). Tomorrow we begin recording for our 2017 programs and, once again, I'll be relying heavily on your help. You know the drill: pray for a good night’s sleep, lots of energy, full breath, and a strong voice.

“The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results” (James 5:16)

Bless you for being such a great partner in prayer!

Joni, I am so very grateful for VCY Milwaukee radio station, they carry your 2 minutes message each morning while my husband and I are packing lunches and getting ready for work. I find every daily message to be inspiring to me. I would love to have a CD containing all of your messages. Have you ever thought of putting something like that together? May the Lord continue to bless your health and your wonderful ministry. I thank my God for you!

We will pray daily for you Joni. Just found your site. You may not remember, but you graciously allowed me to take your picture with my granddaughter Katie, in Hershey, PA in front of the hotel you were staying many years ago, I think year 2000 or 2001, not sure. We still have that picture of you and Katie framed. May The Lord continue to bless your ministry. You are a blessing from God!

Heavenly Father, please be with Joni when she records these broadcasts. Give her good breath, let her voice ring strong and true. Be with all of those who will be in studio and let your peace and joy reflect in them and in these broadcasts that bring glory and honor to you Father. Thank you that you have strengthened Joni over all these years spreading your Word and telling millions about your loving kindness and glorious goodness that is available to all! Please give Joni a good nights rest and time free of pain to record these messages and may your Holy Spirit anoint each episode to have a remarkable work in the lives of the hearers of them. Thank you Father and we ask it all in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen!

Thru a dear friend, I am back in touch with Joni and Friends. I'm in Georgia but can't get any of the radio stations. So I rely on Facebook for what I can see and hear. I pray for you Joni and Friends. You are doing a powerful work. Congrats 35yrs.

Joni, Bless you for all the years you've been so Faithful. Great that we're seeing Miracles in our town too. Have had several friends receive some healing & every day I'm thankful for BBN so I can hear you & many others so thankful you keep serving the King of Kings & can't imagine how tired you & all helpers must get but when U R serving JESUS He gives the strength/Success because U R Honoring Him. God Bless - I'm so thankful we can have a new year with God fearing people & hopefully stop Terrorists, etc. God is giving us a 2nd Chance for USA is my belief. PTL! Keep Sharing :))
