I’ve been thinking a lot about the role prayer plays in our development. I’ve been thinking about the authority we have in our community because we have a personal relationship with God as our Lord and Savior. I’ve been thinking about how most of our growth happens in the hard times that push us outside of our comfort zone. There is SO MUCH MORE to “thoughts and prayers” because Jesus gave us the authority to approach God the Father directly in conversation.

“Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it, and not in the one who says it, our prayers DO make a difference!” – Max Lucado
If you feel like you’re in a rut, or your creativity just hasn’t been firing on all cylinders this summer so far – pray a dangerous prayer!
“Lord use my words this week. Jesus, what do you want to do through me to accomplish your vision with this radio show?”
“Lord, how do you want to use me to connect the values behind SOS Radio to our listeners?
Holy Spirit, if there is anything I’ve been doing that’s distracting people from growing in their relationship with you or blocking that connection, please move it, even if it hurts.”
“Lord, I invite you to use my voice and move me outside of my comfort zone. Will you use my voice this week in spite of my pride, my personal life and my shortfalls in faith?”
“Lord, if there is anything that’s blocking our relationship from flourishing, I’m ready to confess it. I’m ready to study and work through it. I’m ready to own it. I’m ready to grow and put down roots…”
“Jesus, help me to better understand the values you set in place when you started this radio ministry. Show me a fresh revelation of the role I play in the unity of this radio team. Remind me what you see in me! Show me a glimpse of my potential! Lord, how can I best frame your values and passion when I’m hosting a radio show here today?”
“Holy Spirit show me a fresh revelation of the role I play in the stationality here at this radio station… because I want to help this ministry grow! I also want to grow in my faith while I serve with this team!”
—Pray a dangerous prayer and watch how God works through your show, AND renews your passion for lifechange in our cities. I’m so glad you are on this team and we get to do significant kingdom building work together!
Every revival starts in prayer. I hope that is a significant part of your daily showprep.
“Lord, what do you want to develop in my show this summer? If there’s anything I’m doing to block that connection, please move it.” -Scott Herrold / Creative Cardio
