HistoryThe LivePrayer television program began on March 3, 2003 as a late-night show on WTOG where Bill Keller discussed current events in relation to the ministry's theology and took phone calls. Callers would ask Bill to pray with them over specific issues in their lives, occasionally contributing testimony of religious experiences and their comments on scripture. Keller would sometimes encourage his opponents to call in and debate with him on contentious issues such as evolution, abortion, and homosexuality. Each episode ended with Keller inviting viewers to "accept Jesus" and recite a sinner's prayer with him.
July through November 2006, the show was seen nationwide on ION Television. LivePrayer was, up until this point, shown without advertising and paid for entirely by donations. After leaving ION, the show returned to its more economical spot on WTOG. On August 31, 2007, after 1,175 episodes and nearly 5 years, LivePrayer was pulled from WTOG after complaints from the Council on American-Islamic Relations. On September 3, 2007, the show would move to WTTA under the title LivePrayer AM, airing from 7:30 am to 8:30 am.
In early November 2007, because WTTA suddenly changed its policy regarding live call-in shows, the show moved to the local ION station WXPX. While still seen at 7:30 a.m. the show was cut to a half-hour. The morning show featured more guests as well as live shots from Florida attractions. On November 19, 2007, Keller announced that he was suspending his television program on Friday, November 23rd after officials from ION told Keller that it would no longer carry live programming.
In January 2008, Keller revived the show on his website as an internet-only live call-in broadcast. The show flourished and gained substantial viewership with highlights from previous available on YouTube.
In 2013, Keller resumed a live broadcast of the show on television Monday through Friday in markets such as New York City and Chicago. The television show continued well into 2016 peaking with over forty-nine markets carrying the program in addition to the internet broadcast. In November 2017, LivePrayer took a temporary break from broadcasting to give employees a chance to spend time with family after years of rigorous and demanding scheduling.
We are happy to announce that LivePrayer will return in the fall of 2018 to your computer, television, and Roku box. Stay tuned for updates, channels, and schedules. Our service to Christ’s message continues to grow!
