Listen Here:

Good Morning from Sonny & Denny and welcome to Testimony Tuesday! Today's show may be a little tough for some of you to admit to, Praying for someone that you may find difficult. We would love to hear your success stories about what the Lord has done in their lives, and yours. Call 888-413-4156 or you can leave a note below.

Plus, you have to get it wrong to get it right! Huh?! That's right, if you can give us 5 Wrong answers in 20 seconds, you could win tickets to see Push Physical Theater in a Dinner Show.

Dose of Encouragement...

(1 Corinthians 9:24)  Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

There’s only one race and one goal – to love and pursue the Lord our God with all we’ve got.  No earthly prize can compare to the joy of knowing Him.

Your program today is touching people deeply. I love Testimony Tuesdays. When I heard the subject of this weeks "T.T.", I thought immediately of this poem I wrote to people in my life who were hard to pray for.

Brief Supplications
Oh, my dear,
It's hard to pray for you
'Cause just saying your name
Remembers pain.

It conjours up
As best it can
A poster of a broken dream
That's passed
And so I say it fast -
"Lord, bless so-and-so"
And then I rush
To other spots
And names and places
In my thoughts

'Cause I care for you
And want to lift you up
But just saying your name
Remembers pain


praying for people who have hurt us is true, unconditional, sacrificial love. Thank you for reminding us to pray.

I have been both sides I have friends who continue to pray for me and I have an old friend who I have always had trouble with her because she has gone through a lot of rough patches. Through out middle school she was depressed and at times suicidal, and I have always tried to help even though she continues bash my religion. Even though I have tried my best to get through she has never understood why it bothered me and there were times I thought "this is too big for me" but then i remember i was the one who stopped her several times from taking her life. I am also someone that have people praying for them because I countinue to go through hard patches of extream self doubt and self hatred. However my friends both old and new continue to pray for me and help me through my struggles even when I feel like I'm just a waste of time and no one should bother with me. Yet I am always reminded that the Lord is with me and when I have a good day I think he gave me these feelings to help me understand others and help them.
