CJLT-FM is a Canadian radio station, that broadcasts a Christian format at FM 93.7 in Medicine Hat, Alberta. 93.7 Praise FM broadcasts Contemporary Christian music (CHR, AC and Southern Gospel) throughout Southeastern Alberta and into Southwest Saskatchewan.

The station originally began broadcasting in 2003 as an LPFM on 99.5 FM,[1] then in 2007 received CRTC approval to move to operate as a high powered station at 93.7 FM.[2] On April 5, 2011, the station applied to the CRTC to change CJLT-FM's frequency from 93.7 MHz to 103.3 MHz, as well as increase their power to 58,000 watts; furthermore, they also requested to rescind their "specialty format" status, which would enable them to switch to a soft adult contemporary format. [3] [4] [5] This application was rejected due to the popularity of the christian format.

On October 4th, 2012, it was announced that Vista Radio had acquired 93.7 FM from Lighthouse Broadcasting Ltd. [6] On October 15th, 2012, at 7am, Vista Radio re-launched Power 93.7 as 93.7 Praise FM, with Jeff Michaels & Warren Affleck on Mornings, Beth Warden and "Today's Family" middays, and Warren Osmond on Afternoon drive.[7]
