Hello, I’m Jill Morikone, and we have just experienced an amazing Day of Prayer here at Three Angels Broadcasting Network. Each year we gather as a family, recount the Lord’s blessings of the past 12 months, and hear about the exciting new opportunities God is providing.
This year our founder, Danny Shelton, started us off by declaring that 2014 is the “Year of Preparation.” He focused on the story of Gideon, who was faced with ridding Israel of a vast horde of enemies. Following God’s orders, he gave each of his 300 men a trumpet and an empty pitcher with a torch hidden inside. Surrounding the enemy camp in the middle of the night, they suddenly blew their trumpets and shouted, “The sword of the Lord and of Gideon.” Then they broke their pitchers and held their torches high, causing total panic in the enemy camp. Startled and confused, their enemies turned on each other, and God’s people won a great victory.
“In the same way, we need to give the Gospel trumpet a certain sound,” Danny exclaimed, “and if we’re willing to break the pitcher of self and hold up the torch of Jesus, the enemies of the Gospel will turn on each other and destroy themselves.”
Danny’s powerful message was followed by [a message from] 3ABN’s President, Pastor Jim Gilley, who spoke to us about the need for personal surrender and preparation to be used by God. Sharing from his heart, he spoke of how his faith has grown this past year as he witnessed the Lord’s blessings.
Once again, God has blessed us with the support of our viewers and listeners to keep this great ministry financially strong through another troubled year. As we sang, “We Are Standing on Holy Ground,” each of us was keenly aware that we are surrounded by angels and that we cooperate with all of heaven to seek out the lost.
We heard amazing reports from each of our networks. We praised God for the blessings of new technology, and we thanked Him for bringing us new and talented workers.
But it was the stories of changed lives that motivated us the most to do more for the Master. As we joined in individual prayer for this ministry and for each other, we concluded this special day on a spiritual high note.
We are so grateful for each of you who make this ministry possible through your financial support, and we feel your prayers surrounding us and holding us up each day.
If the Holy Spirit impresses you to support this ministry with your tax-deductible gifts, we thank you in advance, and may God’s grace shine upon you today as you join us in reaching one more soul for Jesus.
