DAILY DEVOTIONAL FRIDAY AUGUST 28, 2015
(1 Corinthians 1:9)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, thank you for meeting my daily needs
as you have promised in your Word. I look to you and your alone for my
sustenance through life, and thank you for your faithfulness. Please help me
to be a good steward of the funds you entrust into my care during this life,
and give me favor in my finances, and wisdom in my decisions. In the name of
Jesus I pray...AMEN!
"God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord." 1 Corinthians 1:9
Today, I am asking for your prayers. By the grace of God the Lord has opened
the door to finally secure a national syndication deal for the Liveprayer TV
program starting this coming January! The program is currently airing on
over 110 non-Christian stations each night, including WJYS in Chicagoland
that is available to the 10 million people in that metropolitan market. That
syndication deal will put the LP TV program on a major national cable and
satellite carrier reaching the 90 million TV households in the nation "live"
every Mon-Fri from Midnight-1am Eastern!
Just as exciting, this contract will pay the Liveprayer Church an upfront
amount of just under $500,000 in December and a monthly payment which will
virtually cover all of the ministries operating expenses! Liveprayer is
still currently carrying just under $300,000 of debt left over from the
nearly $1 million of debt we incurred in 2006 and 2007 as we took the TV
program national independently, a move that failed when the financial
meltdown hit the entire economy in early 2008.
This initial payment for the syndication in December will allow us to retire
100% of the balance of our outstanding debt! PRAISE GOD! Many
professionals advised me over the years to simply bankrupt the ministry and
walk away, but this is a MINISTRY, not a Trump casino, and I vowed not to
rest until every dime had been taken care of knowing God would honor my
heart and integrity!
As you know, the ministry has struggled to cover our monthly operations most
every month since 2008, but the Lord has always brought dear friends like
you to help at critical times to insure His work here continued and remained
strong. I have had to cut staff to a bare minimum and have not taken a
salary personally since early 2008, and through these personal scarifies we
have been able to keep moving forward without any interruption in our daily
ministry to souls worldwide literally 24/7/365.
In the midst we have been able to re-launch the Liveprayer TV program in May
of 2013, an incredible minsitry tool that has only aired on non-Christian
stations and networks since we debuted the program in 2003. It is still the
ONLY "live" minsitry program on any television, and still continues to
impact lives each night, save souls, and bring God's Truth into a
marketplace virtually void of that truth.
By His grace, the love, prayers, and INCREDIBLE FINANCIAL SACRIFICES of many
in the Liveprayer family along with the personal sacrifices of hours and
compensation I've made (Even though the additional hours have taken a bit of
a toll on my health over the past few years, God has continued to heal me
and give me the strength I need each day.), Liveprayer has continued to be
the unique beacon of light to this nation, world, and so many lives each
As we prepare to celebrate the 16th anniversary of Liveprayer this Monday,
we have passed the ONE MILLION mark of people we know of who have accepted
Christ as their Savior by faith! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!
***AUGUST FINANCIAL UPDATE: As we are in the last 4 days of August, so far
the first $15,000 of the $65,000 we need for our August operations has come
in, leaving us requiring $50,000 over these final 4 days. *$10,000 from the
first weeks of the month is critically past due, and I am praying today for
1 or 2 of our friends who can help me with a special one-time gift of $5,000
or more to insure that critical past due amount is covered today!
--->August is our Anniversary Month. On the 31st, Liveprayer will be 16
years old to the glory of God! Let me ask you to pray about sending a
special gift of $16 ($1 for each year of ministry), $160 ($10 for each year
of ministry), $1,600 ($100 for each year of ministry, or $16,000 ($1,000 for
each year of ministry)! Please pray about a special offering to Liveprayer
in honor or memory of someone you love who has impacted your faith in
Christ. What a powerful way to remember a person God has used in your
journey, as they will live for all eternity not just in your life and others
they touched along the way, but those lives your gift will impact for the
Lord in their honor.

I love and care about you so much. Very few know of the many and incredible
personal sacrifices I have made over these past 23 years to serve the Lord,
the personal price I have paid in so many ways. I have never complained
because it has been the highest HONOR to serve the Lord and give my life to
you and all of those the Lord has brought to this ministry, many in their
most critical time of need, over these many years. I am happy to undergo as
many personal challenges as I need to until the Lord calls me home, knowing
my rewards will not be in this life, but will come in Glory!
As we head into the final 4 months of this year of victory, may we labor
together as we see the sparks of a national revival to see a mighty harvest
of souls and help lead this nation back to God and His Truth!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
