SGN Scoops is pleased to present these postings which focus on prayer, for the National Day of Prayer. We hope they draw you nearer to the Almighty, the focus of our prayers.

Bobby Carter of the Jay Stone Singers:

Bobby Carter

Bobby Carter

Not to sound like a broken record, but PRAYER truly is the key to heaven. So many times in my personal life and in the ministry of Jay Stone Singers have we seen God move and answer prayer!

When we are out on the road, I usually do most of the bus driving and one of my favorite times is early morning hours driving down an Interstate! God still answers prayers and I know He heard my prayer!

 

 

Allegiance

Kasey Kemp of Allegiance:

When I was growing up, we had a family bible on our family coffee table. The table was built by my grandpa and was the place I knelt to pray, at the age of seven, when my Dad led me to Jesus to Christ. Now, years later, I still have that little table and it is still a very special place for me to pray. I thank God for the gift of prayer knowing God does hear and answer what He knows is best for us.

Kasey and Haley

Kasey and Haley

Recently, a huge prayer request was answered when God sent me my beautiful wife Haley. I prayed for many years and on April 7 (my birthday) of this year we said “I DO!” God answered prayer by blessing me with a Godly, beautiful wife.

I praise God for answered prayer each week as Allegiance travels. God continues to keep us and our families safe and allows us to see people saved and encouraged. Prayer truly is an amazing gift from God.

Do you have a specific place to pray? Have you had a specific answer from God? Share it with us today! lorraine@sgnscoops.com

Branson Gospel Music Revival To Be Held At Tri-Lakes Center Next Week

Written by Scoops Staff on June 23, 2011 – 1:03 pm -

Four-day event to include Dino, HisSong and others and will benefit Convoy Of Hope Disaster Relief

BRANSON, Mo. – (June 23, 2011) – The Branson Gospel Music Revival (formerly Convention) is returning to Branson, Missouri for the third time next week. The four-day annual event heads to a new venue this year, the Tri-Lakes Center, 2527 State Highway 248 in Branson.

Taking place Tuesday, June 28 – Friday, July 1, the gospel celebration consists of daily matinee and evening concerts featuring approximately 75 Gospel musicians from across the United States.

Dino, HisSong, Beyond the Ashes, Kenny Bishop, Ann Downing, Mike Allen, The Williamsons, Praise Incorporated, 2nd Generation, Voices of Glory, Jay Stone Singers, McMillan and Life, Rod Burton, Lynda Lynn, Sunday Edition, Mystery Men, and more will be part of the Revival, which organizers say puts the spotlight on the gospel message.

Also returning will be the popular SGN Scoops Diamond Awards, as well as the Tribute to Albert Brumley and  “Piano Praise” segments. Additionally, a  “New Faces” afternoon concert geared toward teens and those “young at heart” has been added. A Branson GMR Prayer Team, who will pray with audience members and artists alike during the week, is a new addition this year as well.

“We continue to learn and grow and are striving to make this an even more enjoyable event, one that continues to attract new people to this great city every summer,” co-owner and host Rod Burton stated. “Meanwhile, our focus continues to be on fostering a time of refreshing and encouragement for our artists as well as the audience.”

Having won the “Pacesetter of the Year” award from AbsolutelyGospel.com for the second consecutive year, Burton and his wife and partner, Kelly Burton, look forward to building on the success of what they still consider a very new event.

“It has been a true honor to receive some Gospel industry accolades,” Kelly mentions. “What we hope that sort of recognition translates to is more people coming to hear the truly fantastic artists who gather here with us in Branson every summer, so they can receive the message of faith being offered through gospel music.”

On that note, the couple has announced that Wednesday, June 29, will be “Disaster Relief Night” at the Revival, with a portion of all ticket and program book proceeds going to aid victims of Branson and Hollister area flooding as well as the recent catastrophic tornado in Joplin, Missouri. Donations will be made to the Assemblies of God relief organization Convoy of Hope, which has already provided substantial assistance throughout the region.

Concerts are scheduled daily Tuesday, June 28 through Friday, July 1 from noon-4:00 p.m. and again from 6:00 p.m.-10:30 p.m. Ticket prices start at $18.00 per day for adults and can be purchased by calling the Tri Lakes Center at 1-800-785-1550 or 417-336-0219.

More information about Branson Gospel Music Revival can be found at www.BransonGMR.com or by calling 615-530-3726.

Branson Gospel Music Revival Launches Prayer Ministry

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on January 27, 2011 – 9:31 am -

BRANSON, Mo. – (January 26, 2011) – Rod & Kelly Burton, owners of YMR Music Productions, LLC and promoters of the award-winning Branson Gospel Music Revival, are excited to announce a new prayer ministry to offer artists and organizations involved in the annual event.

Kelly Burton said, “So many of us that are involved in this event have become like family. And as a family, we want to be able to lift each other up in prayer when we need to. We’ve already had a pretty devastating January with the loss of Susan Unthank of AbsolutelyGospel.com and the critical accident of Appointed by Grace’s Randy Woodrome. Both of these people have been active participants of our ‘family,’ and we know that God has acted on their behalf because of the prayers lifted up.”

Wanda Deering, wife of Branson Gospel Music Revival board member Wayne Deering, will be heading up the Email Prayer Ministry. Those who would like to submit a prayer request to the ministry or who would like to be a part of the intercessory prayer team can email prayer@bransongmc.com.

“Many artists and supporters know Ms. Wanda from her attendance at countless gospel events,” mentioned Rod Burton. “We are so grateful for her passion for prayer. Please know that needs shared with her will be taken to heart, taken to the throne, and taken no farther. We encourage you to share your needs & promise no request will be taken for granted.”

The Branson Gospel Music Revival (formerly Convention) will be returning to Branson, Missouri for the third time late last year. The Burtons also announced that the four-day annual event will be changing venues, relocating in 2011 to the Tri-Lakes Center, 2527 State Highway 248 in Branson.

The Branson Gospel Music Revival will be held Tuesday, June 28 – Friday, July 1, 2011 at the Tri-Lakes Center. Over a hundred gospel artists from across the country will be there to perform, including returning favorites HisSong, Beyond the Ashes, Freedom, Kenny Bishop, Dan Keeton Quartet, The Williamsons, Praise Incorporated, 2nd Generation, Jay Stone Singers, McMillan and Life, Rod Burton, Lynda Lynn, Sunday Edition, Mystery Men Quartet, and more.

They also confirmed the return of Branson’s Dino Kartsonakis, who will headline one night of the event.  Also returning will be the popular SGN Scoops Diamond Awards and the “Piano Jubilee.”

Tickets have already gone on sale and can be purchased from the Tri-Lakes Center box office by calling (417) 336-0219.
