Wednesday Morning Prayer Focus: God IS interested in the little things in our lives

Written by Staff on May 6, 2015 – 8:14 am -

Mark Trammell Quartet

Mark Trammell Quartet

At SGN Scoops, we are having a focus on prayer during the week of the National Day of Prayer which occurs on Thursday, May 7, 2015. We have asked our friends in social media to talk to us about the importance of prayer in their lives.

Today’s Bible verse: “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” (James 5:16 KJV)

Mark Trammell

Mark Trammell

Mark Trammell, of the Mark Trammell Quartet, talks about the constant provision of God:

It is customary that we pray before the bus leaves my house. I personally pray before going to bed and when I wake up, whether at home or on the road. Answers to prayer begin with the beginning of this group 13 years ago last week. God has answered prayer specifically, especially in the area of providing a way for us to continue to sing in the small church in America.

Eight years ago, Mark Trammell Outreach was formed. This is the non-profit missions outreach arm of our ministry. Jeff Haney approached me eight years ago and asked me if I truly had a burden for the small church and the desire to take the best quality gospel music to them. I told him that day that I grew up in a small church and I would love to be able to take our music to a part of the christian world that could not otherwise afford to have a “professional” group. God has blessed that outreach effort, so much so that our MTO bloodline members contribute enough annually to allow us to sing in 30 to 40 communities per year that would not otherwise be able to afford it. It blesses me and is a great lesson to my men that we give our all whether we sing to 50 or 12,000.

God has also been faithful in answering prayer and giving direction in the area of  member changes, as well as simple things like upgrading equipment and finding the right studio to use when recording. I believe that it is important to live by Proverbs 3:5&6. “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (KJV)

God IS interested in the “little things” in our lives. The key to this scripture is having the faith to walk in the paths that he directs us to. God is only responsible to provide when we are obedient to His voice. Doesn’t mean I always am. But it sure does make a difference when we are!

 

His Mercies

His Mercies

Mitzi Stamey, vocalist with His Mercies, has seen God answer many prayers:

Prayer is a closeness with God. I can go to him and pray for forgiveness, I can ask for healing or restoration for myself and others, and ask for desires of the heart as well. It’s the straight path of leading others to Christ through salvation as well. I read and study his word daily and I try to pray several times a day. I pray in a quiet place: in my bedroom, or in my special chair in the living room.

When we travel, I can take needs to the father through prayer using the churches’ altars, and can simply be praying on the way to our concerts.

I have seen God answer many prayers. Just recently I saw a man with stage-four lung cancer at a church and prayed for him. When I returned to the church a few months later he was completely healed.

It’s not uncommon to see God’s hand at work each and every day. We have been blessed to see over 40 lives accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior so far this year alone.

I have seen miracles in my own life. I was infertile and struggled with wanting a child for years and God gave me a special call from a doctor one day, who I didn’t even know, and I ended up conceiving my son, who is now 13 (will be 14 June 12 th.)

I prayed again for a daughter and God sent a girl right into my path who blessed me with my daughter who is now eight years old. He spared my life from a car crash in which the car flipped three times. I felt the presence of God with me as the prayers were answered.

I’m here to tell you God is REAL. You can’t convince me otherwise, I have too many stories to tell but I would be writing a book.

I may not be much but there is one thing for certain, I’m a born again child of God and I’m so thankful He cared enough to go to Calvary and take the nails and stripes for me and you!

 

Richard tells us: I just found KJIC 90.5 FM, a Christian radio station and then saw the link to this site. I see that the focus this week is on prayer, so I thought I would share with you(or maybe you already know about) the world wide prayer meeting taking place started by Times Square Church.
http://itstimetopray.org/
They get together and fast,worship, and pray once a week. It is about an hour and 30min. You can submit prayer requests and praise reports.
Christians tune in (live webcast) from about 150 countries to pray and seek the face of God. The pastor believes God called us for such a time as this and bases it on 2 Chronicles 7:14.
These are the one minute devotionals that focus on prayer.
http://itstimetopray.org/radio-devotionals/

Have you had a close encounter with God? Do you have a special place you go to be alone with Him? Tell us. lorraine@sgnscoops.com Thanks to everyone we have heard from so far!

Donna King Lands in Top Ten of NSAI Song Contest

Written by Staff on February 6, 2015 – 10:00 am -

TwitterandFB_ProfileLast October, upwards of 2000 songwriters entered songs in the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) Song Contest presented by CMT (Country Music Television Network).

On February 1, 2015 the Top Ten Finalists were announced and among that select group was producer, songwriter, and artist in her own right, Donna King. Donna is well known in Christian music circles, having written, produced, and performed many hit Christian songs. However, this particular song is from Donna’s Country music songwriting collection. The song is entitled “THIS KIND OF COLD.”

Donna says, “I am still in complete shock over making it to the NSAI CMT Song Contest Top 10 Finalists. I know I have to write songs and nothing I am able to do is done in my own strength. I pray that each song I write will find the home it was meant to live in. Some of those songs are just meant to live in my own heart and others are meant to reach places that I can only imagine they might go.

“The most wonderful thing about this contest is the opportunity to expand the reach of my songs and to live fully in what I feel is God’s most definitive call on my life. I congratulate every finalist for their achievement and I thank the NSAI and CMT for helping to create a path for songs that may never otherwise have an opportunity to be heard. I also thank every person taking the time to vote for “THIS KIND OF COLD” and to share it with others to vote as well. Finally, I thank God. He knows the plans He has for me…Jeremiah 29.11.”

IStandWithPhil.com Petition Drive Calls for Phil Robertson’s Immediate Return to Duck Dynasty

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on December 19, 2013 – 9:40 am -

IStandWithPhRALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 19, 2013  — Faith Driven Consumer, an organization connecting Christian consumers with faith-compatible companies, has launched the IStandWithPhil.com petition drive, which calls for The A&E Network to immediately reinstate Mr. Phil Robertson to its #1 hit show, Duck Dynasty. IStandWithPhil.com is garnering strong support from Faith Driven Consumers with its call for tolerance, fairness, and respect for differing viewpoints in America’s rainbow of diversity.

“Simply put, Phil Robertson is being censored and punished for quoting the Bible, and A&E’s treatment of him is punitive and highly discriminatory,” said Chris Stone, founder of Faith Driven Consumer. “Everyday people will not stand for this, they know bullying and violation of religious freedom when they see it. A&E’s actions are censoring Faith Driven Consumers and eliminating them from an entertainment choice that they have overwhelmingly supported.”

IStandWithPhil.com is leading the charge in the call for fairness and equality as we defend the fundamental American right to free speech and tradition of tolerance.

The IStandWithPhil.com online petition drive cites the A&E network’s “intolerant, discriminatory, and punitive treatment” of the Duck Dynasty star, noting that “A&E’s position, which in your own words is ‘championing’ the gay and lesbian community…excludes the views of Faith Driven Consumers and effectively censors a legitimate viewpoint held by the majority of Americans.” IStandWithPhil.com calls for respect for the millions of viewers of the show, and demands that the network immediately reinstate Mr. Robertson and “formally apologize to him, his family, and the millions of viewers who tune in every week, stand by him, and share his worldview.”

The complete petition can be seen here: istandwithphil.com

Creekside Gospel Music Convention Announces Outreach Project

Written by SGN Scoops on October 8, 2012 – 11:43 am -

The Creekside Gospel Music Convention is excited to announce its partnership with a local ministry during the three-day event in Pigeon Forge, October 29,30 31.  “From day one of planning the Creekside Gospel Music Convention, the idea of being more than just a music convention was heavy on my heart.  It’s my conviction that if a great number of Christians are gathered in a city, then surely there is something we can collectively do to leave the community better than it was when we arrived.  Of course, our goal is to spread the gospel in song, but putting our music into action has been close to my heart,” says Rhonda Frye, Editor in Chief of SGNScoops Magazine.

The 2012 Creekside Gospel Music Convention will partner with a local non-profit ministry called “LIVE-IT.” Their tagline is- “Taking the Bible Out of the Box!”  LIVE-IT works with churches, community organizations, businesses, local government and neighborhoods to minister to widows, orphans, single moms, veterans, the handicapped, in many  ways.  LIVE-IT helps the less fortunate with providing necessities or with home repairs, yard maintenance, car repairs and more.  LIVE-IT has a “pay it forward” focus that helps those on the receiving end give back to the community by using their unique gifts and talents.

“We have never done anything like this before,” says Paul Danis of LIVE-IT. “We are thankful and excited to be a part of Creekside Gospel Music Convention. We look forward to our partnership to change lives of those in need in Sevier County.”

“We are excited to join a ministry that is showing God’s love to so many people in the region,” Rob Patz, owner of SGNScoops, adds.

LIVE-IT operates a “thrift store” and proceeds earned are funneled into buying supplies needed for ministry.  We are asking all of the artists participating as well as all those attending Creekside Gospel Music Convention to help LIVE-IT stock their Thrift Store!  LIVE-IT will park a truck to gather donations during the 3-day event.  Items needed are: building supplies, housewares, good working appliances, used clothing, shoes, purses, belts, hats, coats, toys, games, children’s clothing, books AND music CDs!

We are asking that no one come to Creekside empty-handed, so plan ahead, pack now so that you don’t forget!   If we all participate, we can leave a lasting impression on a community. We are simply asking our guests and participants to  donate something that you’re not using.  All of those small donations will surely add up and will speak volumes about God’s love to a community that needs Jesus.

To learn more about LIVE-IT, visit http://www.liveit.tv/index.html.

About Creekside Gospel Music Convention:

We hope you’re making plans to be with us for Celebrating Lou Hildreth’s 75 years in Gospel Music, The Diamond Awards and Gospel Music.  All events are free to the public!  The Creekside Gospel Music Convention will take place at the Smoky Mountain Convention Center in Pigeon Forge, TN on October 29,30 and 31!

Rooms are available at the hotel on site for just $54 per night.  Reservations can be made by phone or online.  By phone, call toll-free at Toll Free: 1-800-223-6707 or local call 865-908-3015.

GRAMMY®-Nominated Family Group Jeff & Sheri Easter Release New Music with Eyes Wide Open

Written by SGN Scoops on September 21, 2012 – 1:54 pm -

Gospel Music Mainstays Hit the Airwaves to Support New Recording, Celebrate Award and Announce Upcoming
2nd Annual Paint Your Town Pink Campaign
NASHVILLE, Tenn.–September 21, 2012—Multiple award-winning and GRAMMY®-nominated Jeff & Sheri Easter, of Lincolnton, GA, have just released an all-new studio recording.  Eyes Wide Open (Spring Hill Music Group) was produced by Jeff and Sheri Easter, veteran producer Greg Cole and Jeff & Sheri’s son, Madison Easter, who made his debut as a co-producer with the new release.
Eyes Wide Open incorporates the country-styled Gospel harmonies and hints of bluegrass for which the group has been known since its inception and celebrates their family heritage, both past and present.  Sheri re-recorded a classic Mahalia Jackson ballad “Standing Here Wondering” that her mother, Polly Lewis Copsey, a member of the legendary Lewis Family, recorded during her lauded career.  In turn, Sheri’s daughter Morgan paid homage to Sheri on the new, down-home recording with a re-make of Sheri’s noted ballad “I Wonder If He Ever Cries.”
Keeping things “all in the family,” Jeff performed the tune “I Won’t Have to Worry Anymore,” which is the first radio single from the new release, with a guest vocal from his father, James Easter, a member of the classic Gospel bluegrass group The Easter Brothers.  James, who is now 80 years old, also joined the group for a special performance of the song on the main stage at the 2012 National Quartet Convention (NQC).
“Daddy played ‘I Won’t Have to Worry Anymore’ to Mama shortly before she left her tired, broken body here to live in her new one in heaven,” explained Jeff.  “I wanted him to join me in recording this song for the release.  It has always meant a great deal, but now this song has even a greater meaning to both of us.”
Other song titles on Eyes Wide Open include “Love Is,” “Anything But Happy,” “It Must Have Been You,” “Sitting on Top of the World,” “I’ll Take It,” “A Little Bit of Sunshine,” “A Good Old Gospel Song” and “There Is a Purpose.”
The family ties continue on the new recording as Sheri and Madison Easter co-wrote their first song together–“I Know How It Feels to Survive,” which commemorates Sheri’s victory over breast cancer, a topic about which Sheri remains passionate and active.
“There is nothing like living with eyes wide open,” described Sheri, who is now a four-year cancer survivor.  “There is nothing like living with perspective and being able to always see the good in every moment of life.  I am thankful that I had a wonderful support system of my family and all our wonderful friends throughout the country and the world.  I know all our fans can help make a difference in the lives of others who are facing breast cancer.”
Those fans will have a chance to do just that with Jeff & Sheri’s upcoming 2nd Annual Paint Your Town Pink Campaign.  For all of their concerts during the month of October, in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, they are asking everyone to wear pink to create awareness for breast cancer.  The group will also be wearing pink nightly, and a portion of their concerts will honor cancer survivors and recognize local cancer care clubs in efforts to raise funds for these organizations.
Eyes Wide Open, distributed exclusively by EMI CMG Distribution, is available now at retail stores and online stores everywhere.  The release comes on the heels of Sheri being honored by fans as the 2012 Alto Singer of the Year at last week’s NQC Awards in Louisville, Ky.
The group premiered songs from the new recording recently on “The Grand Ole Opry,” at the National Quartet Convention, during a LIVE listening party on air at WGUS in Augusta, Ga. and also through an in-depth interview on the Solid Gospel Radio Network.
For more information, visit www.jeffandsherieaster.com.  Connect with Jeff & Sheri through social media: Facebook – www.fb.com/JeffAndSheriEaster, Twitter – @JSEaster, @SheriEaster.
ABOUT JEFF & SHERI EASTER:
Two-time GRAMMY®-nominated Jeff & Sheri Easter are Gospel music treasures, featured regularly on the Gaither HOMECOMING videos and international HOMECOMING tours in addition to their own heavy schedule of appearances.  Jeff & Sheri are the recipients of six GMA DOVE Awards, 15 Singing News Fan Awards, three Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music Association Awards, two International Country Gospel Music Association honors, seven AGM Ovation Awards, 16 Voice Awards, four Southern Gospel Music Fan Fair Awards, five SGN Scoops Diamond Awards, four Hearts Aflame Awards and three Cash Box Awards.
Formed in 1988 following childhoods as part of their respective, nationally-known family groups The Lewis Family and The Easter Brothers, the married couple is joined today on stage by their children, Madison and Morgan Easter, who round out the group. The group is known for such hits as “Roses Will Bloom Again,” “Praise His Name,” “Thread of Hope,” “Speak to the Mountain” and many others including “Born to Climb,” which garnered a 2010 DOVE Award. They were nominated for a 2011 GRAMMY® Award for their Expecting Good Things (Spring Hill Music) recording, which was recorded while Sheri endured a journey through and victory over breast cancer.
