Prayer is part of the daily rhythm of broadcasts on KNOM Radio.
Weekdays on “The Morning Show,” volunteer fellow Emily Hofstaedter sets aside a few moments at 8:30 for prayer and reflection. At three o’clock in the afternoon, listeners are invited to prayer again. Nightly, during a 9:00pm devotional hour, listeners can pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and the Holy Rosary, recorded by KNOM with members of the local Catholic community. Prayers are also a frequent feature of KNOM’s inspirational spots.
Visitors to this site, knom.org, are warmly invited to join in prayer, too, whether through recordings of the Divine Mercy Chaplet and Rosary or by submitting prayer requests using the website’s contact form. The intentions of KNOM’s supporters and community are remembered in prayer before each weekly staff meeting and at Friday evening Mass at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Nome.
