Today's Show Has Been Cancelled

Due to several conflicts in all of our schedules, today's Pray for the Hostages program that was scheduled for 3 pm eastern has had to be cancelled. We will let you know when the next hour long show will be, but as always, please join us Monday - Friday at 12 noon eastern for our daily prayer segment.

God is Good, and we pray to Him for the safe return of all those held against their will!

Pastor Ed

No BTR Show Today

Hopefully we will return to our one-hour format next Saturday at 3 pm Eastern. In the meantime, please join us daily at noon for our 15 minute prayer service. Thank you, and please keep praying for the hostages.

Here are some of the items we will be discussing.

In-depth updates
Looking back at the most recent updates and results of situations that have ended.

Personal stories of the hostages that we know about

Also, don't forget to check the archives for our daily shows. While most of these shows are pretty close to the same, there are some specific updates on nearly every show. Click this link to get to the list of archived shows.
