Pastor Earl On The Radio
One of our church members nominated me to JOY FM radio to take part in their Project Joy – local pastors offering 1-minute prayers, to be broadcast during November. So I went to St. Louis today to get my prayer recorded. 60 seconds – do you know how little time that is to pray? Being a structure kind of guy, I wrote my prayer out before hand and practiced it to see how it timed out – 20 seconds! So I added more prayer and timed it again – 100 seconds! What the heck – then I realized that my first prayer wasn’t 20 seconds long, it was a minute and 20 seconds. Sooo, back to the drawing (or praying) board, and I got it close to 1 minute.
The folks at JOY FM were very cordial and friendly and straightforward. We got a good recording on the second take, which was actually 1 minute 12 seconds, but the engineer assured me he’d tweak it – speed it up so I’d sound like Mickey Mouse??
So I’ll be “on the air” – 97.7 fm & 94.1fm – on Monday, November 24. My prayer will be aired every three hours at the 30 minute break. I guess if you wanna hear it, you’ll need to listen for three hours – for a minute of prayer. Where are our priorities?? 🙂
