*Radio One is on the move yall, and don’t get left behind. Founder, Cathy Hughes recently announced the launch of a new Christian website.
The new site, Christian5xTimers.com has inspired her new ventures in her career as well.
“Everyone said, ‘Write about your career in Black radio, but it wasn’t until we launched [the site] that I really felt this need,” Hughes said. Christian5xTimers seeks to enjoin Christian believers to pray for peace for a minimum of five times a day.
“[I] realized praying five times a day has opened my eyes to the fact that maybe I do have information that I need to share in writing.”
In an interview with Examiner.com, she also disclosed why it’s so important that this website get off the ground and reach the Christian masses.
“I think it’s important because most of us pray in the morning and in the evening and certain times during the day we petition God. But I believe in the scripture that if two are more are gathered in my name I will here from heaven and grant your petition. When we say we are praying for peace, the Christian 5x Timers, we pray five times a day collectively so that our voices will be multiplied and be magnified when we pray. We pray at 7a.m., 11a.m. 3p.m., 7p.m.,and 11p.m., if that fits into your schedule. If it does not we just ask you to pray five times a day for peace. Peace in your life, peace in your spirit, peace in your family, peace in your community, in your city but most importantly peace in this world. Most people don’t realize that when we violate the natural order of things when we pollute the air, when we pollute the water, we are destroying mother nature and that’s a violent act. If we don’t first and foremost come to some peaceful terms, none of us are going to be able to survive.”
She said while some other religions require its members to pray five times a day, it’s about time to get Christians to do the same.
Hughes is excited because through her new network, she’s connected 25,000 people who are in constant prayer in certain categories. Overall, her desire is that God’s people help generate peace through prayer, especially in these times of war and distress. There is bound to be results she explained.
