Due to difficult circumstances in Bonnie’s life, she became homeless. Soon, she became ill with pneumonia and was hospitalized. After 4 days in the hospital, she was released, but still had no place to live. Fortunately, thanks to her friend, Bonnie was able to live in a hotel for 3 weeks. During all these challenges, she listened to WGTS 91.9 which brought her hope and peace. Overall, she was able to have a stronger relationship with God and is thankful for WGTS 91.9 for being an inspiration to her life.

Nicole had been listening to WGTS all week during the Spring Fundraiser and really wanted to donate. But, she is a government contract whose company lost their contract. As of the end of May, she would be out of a job. She was terrified but felt somewhere deep down that this was right. She called in to give $1,000 on faith. The next day she was contacted by a recruiter and had a Skype interview. A few days later, Nicole received notice she had been chosen for the position! God hasn’t just blessed her to be able to support WGTS, but all of this tells her that this is right where she should be.

In 1997 Jim was following a path of loyalty to the Lord when his fiancé died in a car accident. He became a very bitter man which led to womanizing, alcohol, drugs, and violence. As a result this lifestyle landed him in jail. However, Jim was invited to a Church in jail where he became a Christian. When he got out, he decided to look for something inspirational and by accident he found WGTS 91.9, which he says uplifts him and helps him stay on God’s path.

Carrie’s husband is an Air Force pilot and he deployed in May 2013. Originally the deployment was supposed to be for 7 months but was extended to 10 months (300 days). It’s the longest deployment since they’ve had children. Their children are 9 and 7 years old, and have really missed their daddy. But her husband has been listening to WGTS 91.9 overseas, and it has helped connect them despite the distance, knowing that he is listening to the same radio station that they are.

Daniel was out of a job, and eventually found one out of state (in Michigan) and had to be there during the week and come back home on weekends to be with his wife. As you can imagine, it was very difficult for them, until he put a prayer request on WGTS 91.9′s Prayerworks about finding a job closer to home. Almost immediately, he got responses that people were praying for him. Several days later he got an offer for a job here in DC area and he’s so excited.

John’s wife of 31 years passed away just a little over a year ago. There’s an old radio she got at an auction sitting on the end of their kitchen counter. When she was with him, it played WGTS 91.9 continuously. Until recently, he hasn’t had the courage to turn it on. But when he turned it on, instead of the sadness he feared, he felt comfort listening all day as he was preparing the house for Thanksgiving company. He just can’t explain how much it seemed to turn his house back into a home.

The WGTS praise and prayer time Monday morning heard from over 250 listeners, sharing their praises, offering their prayers, and requesting prayer for their own lives. One of the callers, Susan from Westminster shared with us her praise and thanks to God for the miracles He performed in her life and for her daughter. In 2004, her daughter was shot, and it took over 50 units of blood to save her life. But the doctors said even that shouldn’t have spared her. Susan was convinced that through prayer, God performed a miracle and saved her daughter. God helped them forgive the shooter, her daughter had to relearn everything through therapy, and by His grace she is alive when she shouldn’t be. These are the kind of stories we hear every day at WGTS, and it’s all made possible by the support and prayers of our listening family; listeners just like Susan. So call us today, we would love to hear from you. Pray with us, and for your fellow listeners.

“Is any among you suffering? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing praise.” James 5:13
This morning, our friend Shale from Westchester called in and shared her story of the importance of prayer and church family.  Her son was recently in an accident in which he fell and hit his head. His head was swollen; he then blacked out, and later had a seizure. While he was in the hospital, their church family visited, bringing comfort and words of encouragement. The church family prayed with Shale and her son, that God would spare his life, that His will be done. Soon after, the boy was released from the hospital, and he made a full recovery. Through this time, Shale knew she wasn’t alone, and it was then that she realized the power of prayer and the importance of church family.
Call WGTS today and share your praises with us. Pray with us, and for your fellow listeners. Help us in letting them know they are not alone, and that they have a family here at WGTS.
