Thursday, December 14th, Northwestern Media’s 98.5 KTIS devoted a day on the air to invite listeners to call and pray with someone from the KTIS team. Over 400 people called to pray, some waiting over ten minutes on hold.
98.5 KTIS’ Station Manager Dave St. John said, “As the crunch of Christmas to do lists and get together’s were reaching their peak for listeners, the day of prayer was just getting started. There is a need in the Twin Cities for prayer, hope, and sometimes just someone to talk to. The day of prayer was an opportunity for the KTIS team to connect with our listeners in a special way, and allow God to use the KTIS staff to bless our listeners.”
They got great feedback, including this note from a listener on Facebook who wrote, “My 11 year old son called for prayer because he has a biological Dad who is not in the picture. No matter what, my son prays for him to soften his heart, and to accept Jesus. My son heard Lisa Barry on KTIS, and called immediately. The man on the other end was so kind, and also had a father who wasn’t around, so that’s a God thing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
