August 24—The 98.5 KTIS outreach program "PrayerWorks” was created with a simple idea: Use radio reach to connect listeners that have prayer concerns with listeners willing to pray. The initiative recently crossed the 500,000 mark of prayers prayed for each other—in one month alone, KTIS listeners prayed over 50,000 prayers for each other!
Through PrayerWorks, individuals receive notification every time someone has prayed for them and, in many cases, the notification is accompanied by a note of encouragement.
PrayerWorks by the numbers
32,354 prayer requests posted
890 stories shared
14,496 notes of encouragement sent
532,866 prayers prayed
Last year KTIS made the decision to share the PrayerWorks tool with radio colleagues across the country, as well as other ministry groups and churches. To date, there are close to 70 organizations around the country using PrayerWorks with their listeners or members.
In addition, KTIS created a mobile version/application for PrayerWorks. The mobile version and iPhone app are currently available for all Northwestern Media stations, and will be made available to affiliates in the following months.
Real life testimonials from PrayerWorks participants
From: LeeAnn Subject: Thanks for the Prayers Not 10 minutes after submitting a prayer request to help find a job, my phone rang. It was one of the many places I had applied offering me a job! I start on January 3! Praise God!
From: Jeff Subject: From KTIS.fm - Thanks for the Prayers I have posted a few prayer requests on the prayer works and I opened up my email this morning and had 318 people that have prayed for me in the last two days. God is working and I am so uplifted by this prayer as I go through a very tough time in my life right now. A new chapter is being written in my life and God is there and faithful all the time. KTIS is a wonderful help in propelling this in the Twin Cities.
