Larry and I co-hosting America's Prayer Meeting Live Tonight!
The show is not only nationwide, it's worldwide. Larry hosts at times when Bro. Dortch (Richard - the regular host) is out. Tonight he had to make a trip to the Phillipines, so they called and asked Larry to fill in and he wants me to host with him.
So if you want to tune in to see the hottest pastor in all of America host a prayer meeting along with his adoring wife, tune in! How to? In Tampa it's on Direct TV, usually channel 3 or 22...it's also on SkyAngel (worldwide) and I believe Direct TV now in most of the USA if not all...and if all else fails, just get on your computer HERE and watch it. Anyone, anywhere can watch it if you have a computer and internet. Simply scroll all the way down and look to the right where it says, "Live Webcast". Click there and you can watch from your computer. You can also call in if you want! There's a toll free number. I will warn you, tons of calls come in from everywhere so it's not guaranteed that they take your call as one that goes on the air, however everyone does get prayed for by ministers who are also there answering phone calls. It's on EST from 12 midnight - 3 am. So for those of you on the west coast that would be 9 pm-midnight (yep, prime time on the west coast!)
I know some of you tune in to watch my babe when he hosts but now you can see us together...won't that be "speeecial?" (as the church lady would say from SNL! lol!)
I'm tired but looking forward to ministering alongside my husband as a team because that's what we enjoy most. I'm still re-cooping from Unstoppable, and today has been a busy day at work, then I'm preaching tonight (excited about my message - it's called, "Fused for Encouragement") Then Teeb and I will head home from church tonight, freshen up, change clothes, and leave for the studio. I know it makes for a crazy-busy day/night and a tiring day at work tomorrow (we won't roll in til at least 4 am) but you know...these are the fun parts of ministry. Heck, it could be worse! How blessed we are. Somebody somewhere tonight is dealing with a church split, a business meeting going awry, contentious church members, and all kinds of craziness (I've been there, done that in the past!) but despite some stress I've been under lately of another kind...here are the BLESSINGS! I got up having one of my "dark mornings" (not as bad as before with the depression but I still have them and am working through it) and then as the day went on things got better. But alongside the "dark days" (even if you aren't dealing with depression, you still have them) come the blessed moments. Today I have been blessed to get a lot done at the office, I get to do my favorite thing tonight (bring God's Word) and then pray for people all over the world with my husband tonight for three hours. These are the parts of ministry I do love and you know, we have to relish them when they come and soak them in for all they are worth, because some days, it's really hard out there. We must SOAK IN THE BLESSINGS WHEN WE EXPERIENCE THEM!!!
I love you all...and tell you what...Larry has a little "code word" he says on the air to let me know he's thinking of me. Sometimes it's something crazy like last time I think the word was "Bahamas" and it has nothing to do with the show but somehow he fits the word in to what he's saying creatively, and when I hear it, it means, "I love you, Deanna and I'm thinking of you right now". Other times the word is easier to fit in like "fellowship" or discipleship" but it lets me know he's thinking of me. So...I'm going to pick a code word that means, "I love you my bloggy friends and you mean so much"..........and it will be..........COVENANT. :-)
Every time I say COVENANT, I'm thinking of you and shooting a prayer out to you from me, in Tampa, Florida. (((hugs)))
