Daily Devotional for Monday May 17, 2010
A Line in the Sand
A line in the sand! We all have to pick our battles in this life. In war, some hills are not worth dying over, some are. After close to 20 years of serving the Lord as faithfully as I could, after literally pouring my life 100% into God's work here at Liveprayer 24/7/365 for the past 11 years, I am on a hill that I will fight to the death over! The name of that hill is....FINANCES!
If I had wanted to enjoy the riches of this world, I would have done what all other major ministries do and simply preached to the choir. Instead, I have sacrificed my life to reach the lost and hurting outside the four walls of the church. Instead of love I get hatred. Instead of amen's I get death threats. Instead of having private planes, glass buildings, mansions, and huge staffs, I struggle month to month to simply survive.
Preaching to the choir is a proven formula for wealth. Why do you think all of the major ministries are in the Christian media? From the Christian networks, independent Christian stations, to the ministries who air on them, it is the same steady diet of prosperity and wealth. The target audience for their conferences, crusades, and other events are people who are already saved. Oh, and they charge money for people to attend their events like they are rock stars! They run from the marketplace since the lost aren't going to buy them private planes!
That is why there are more churches, more ministries, more Christian media, more Christian everything over the past 40 years, yet during that same time, a huge percentage of 2 full generations have never been to church, the moral decay in our nation is staggering, and every type of sin is operating virtually unopposed. During this period our nation has fallen into a spiritual abyss!
The fact is, we CAN turn this nation back to God, back to His Truth, and in a very short period of time. How? By bringing Christians together as one. Rather than creating more denominations, more independent fiefdoms, we need to UNIFY the Body of Christ as our Lord prayed in the Garden in John 17:21.
Liveprayer is NOT a "neat idea," but a well proven vehicle with the pieces in place to lead our nation back to God. We have impacted tens of millions of lives worldwide these past 11 years, and the only reason we have not seen a greater impact of our work is a lack of finances because I refuse to play the games and compromise like other major ministries. However, I can no longer sit back while millions of souls needlessly burn in hell for all eternity and see this once great nation facing the judgment and wrath of God for our gross sins and wickedness.
Satanic Mormon cult member Glenn Beck has proven how with a national TV and radio program he can influence millions of lives through a specific political ideology. Most people are so blind to the fact that he is also using this influence to help lead souls into the lies of Mormonism once people attach themselves to him. Not to mention, he is making tens of millions of dollars off of his new found fame.
As satan uses the media to lead souls to hell, that same media can be used to lead our nation back to the God of the Bible and HIS Truth!!! My motivation is not to make money, but to save souls and lead our nation back to God and Biblical Truth!!!
I have a small window that will allow us to take the Liveprayer TV program to a major national TV network this September, and with the opportunity to be heard nationally on radio the first of next year. For $6 million dollars, the cost of what many churches pay for a building to house a congregation of 1,000 that meets once a week, we can cover the first 6 months of expenses to allow us the opportunity to reach millions daily, see souls saved, bring the uncompromised truth of God's Word to the masses who never hear it, and attract Christians and others who don't know about Liveprayer, but are tired of seeing sin flourish in our nation to help support our work.
Immediately, I still need 13 people to make a one-time special gift of $5,000 to cover all of our budget shortfalls since January of 2009. We still need to raise $35,000 to cover the rest of our May budget. In the meantime, we are launching a special program to attract 6,000 people to make a one-time sacrifce of $1,000 over the next 60 days in order to cover the $6 million we need for the national TV program.
I know that there is at least one, probably more, people reading this today who have the resources and/or network of people who could help me put this $6 million together. God is speaking to you today. It takes courage to take on satan and to do something great for God. When your life is over, or worse yet, when God runs out of patience and rains down His wrath on this nation, you will remember this opportunity. When we get saved, ALL we have now belongs to the Lord. Our life, our time, our talent, our resources, everything. I am brining this opportunity to you today to PRAY about, and see what God is calling YOU to do to help me!
After nearly 20 years of ministry, I have chosen this hill to die on if necessary, in order to have the vehicle to save millions of souls and help lead our nation back to God and His Truth. I will no longer sit back and be passive on this matter, but am in full battle mode to see victory and fulfill God's plan for my life and His minsitry here at Liveprayer. Our time is NOW! God is calling us to step-up and take our stand for Christ as so many before us have done.
I love you and care about you so much! Millions have prayed for me and this minsitry over the years, thousands have stood with me by making great sacrifices to fund His work here at Liveprayer over these past 11 years. Those prayers and sacrifices are why we have been able to impact tens of millions of lives worldwide and see over 400,000 we know of come to faith in Jesus. Whatever rewards there may be in Heaven will go to each one in the Liveprayer family since you make all we do possible.
I need you to do 4 things for me today. 1) PRAY! I have taken my stand on this hill, I need your prayers now more than ever. 2) Below, starting with the Monday, May 17, 2010 date, is a special message I prepared for you to cut and paste and send to EVERY PERSON you know who God has blessed financially, who loves the Lord, and has never heard of Liveprayer but could be used by God to help me generate the finances we need to lead this nation back to God and His Truth. Some could fund the entire $6 million, others have circles of influence with people of wealth and could pull together a group of people to meet this need. 3) Pray about being one of the last 13 I need to make that special one-time gift of $5,000 to clear up our past shortfalls. 4) Pray about being one of the 6,000 God is calling to make that sacrifce of $1,000 to fund the first 6 months of the national TV program.
When this nation was founded, it was a small group of men who risked life, liberty, and treasure to form this great union. After Jesus was crucified and resurrected, it was a handful of men who literally gave their lives and all they had to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world of their day. Over these past 2,000 years, men and women have made great sacrifices to share the love of Jesus and help lead lost souls to faith in Christ. NOW IT IS OUR TURN!
In 100 years, should Jesus tarry, chances are that none of us will be alive. What will our only real legacy be? Those lives we impacted for etenrity for Christ! In life we have to pick our battles. After nearly 11 years of Liveprayer, I have been battling satan 24/7 for the souls of men. Satan's only victories have come from keeping the finances of Liveprayer at a place where we could never take that final step. It is time to face satan on that hill called "finances," and defeat him once and for all!!! It is time to lead this nation back to God and His Truth!!!
Will you stand and fight with me???

My name is Bill Keller..I am the founder of www.liveprayer.com and the host of the "Liveprayer with Bill Keller" TV program. I am sure you are very busy so I will make this brief. You probably don't know who I am, and like I do, I.am sure you get tons of unsolicited communication daily. I find that every now and than the Lord is speaking to me through someone else.
If someone came to you an said that there was a way for this nation to turn back to God and Biblcial Truth in the next 12 months, would you listen? Please take 15 minutes out of your busy day and see if God is not talking to you loud and clear through these words.
Several years ago, the Lord showed me that the only hope for this nation is to turn back to God and His Truth, much like Nineveh did to avoid its' destruction. There is no other hope or our country ! He gave me a plan called the Jonah Project. When you get a second, please watch the vision video at: http://liveprayer.com/jonah/
11 yrs ago this August I started the Liveprayer.com website. Today, the Daily Devotional I have written every day since we started goes to an opt in subscriber base off over 2.4 million people all over the world. From that, we receive over 40,000 emails for prayer each day, and I have a team of over 700 retired pastors who help me send a personal response back to every email. We have answered over 70 million since we began. To date, we have seen right at 400,000 people we know of come to faith in Christ.
In March of 2003, I launched the Liveprayer TV program. Even though I am a Christian evangelist, I only air my program on major secular network affiliates. From 3/3/03 until 8/31/07, I aired the program "live" every Mon-Fri from 1-2am on the CBS owned WTOG UPN, than CW affiliate, in Tampa, Florida (the 12 TV market in the nation).
From June 05-June 06, I was also on "live" for an hour 5 nights a week on the ABC affiliates in Miami, West Palm, Ft. Myers, and Jacksonville. For 10 weeks in 06, we were seen "live" for an hour 5 nights a week nationwide on the "i" Network, formerly Pax TV which NBC owns a 32% stake in.
Currently, we are only being seen in the Ft. Myers/Naples market every Mon-Fri from 7-730am on the Comcast owned MyTV affiliate in that market.
I have included a link to my website and my MEDIA page that has all of my major media from the past several yrs. As you will see, I get around and am on often on the various national cable outlets like FOX and CNN. I also appear often with Howard Stern on his radio program. How about that for 2 diverse worlds meeting!
The bottom line is that this program is unlike anything on secular TV. It has proven over the years to be highly effective, since the majority of the past 2 generations have never been to church and people are looking for real truth. I deal with all of the issues of the day and in the world from a Biblical worldview.
That is a view still held by a good percentage of people in the nation, and something people won't get anywhere else. As you can tell from my media page, I am willing to go out and say things that most want to but simply don't have the guts to or platform to say it from.
I am looking for $6 million to take the Liveprayer TV program nationwide starting this September nationally on the "i" Network. I am NOT asking you to do this alone, but help me to put together a group of people like yourself who want to make a real impact with your lives and use the resources the Lord has blessed you with to not only save souls, but save the soul of this nation!
I know that there is at least one, probably more, people reading this today who have the resources and/or network of people who could help me put this $6 million together. God is speaking to you today. It takes courage to take on satan and to do something great for God.
When your life is over, or worse yet, when God runs out of patience and rains down His wrath on this nation, you will remember this opportunity. When we get saved, ALL we have now belongs to the Lord. Our life, our time, our talent, our resources, everything. I am brining this opportunity to you today to PRAY about, and see what God is calling YOU to do to help me!
We have a very short window to get the program on a major national network this September, so time is short. Having the "live," hour-long daily program that reaching 90 million TV households is an opportunity to bring the message of God's Truth and the hope we have in Christ to the lost and hurting masses and rally Believers to speak with one unified voice.
Sadly, the lost outside of the church are the very people those who stay on the Christian networks have forgotten. Those major Christian ministries with the resources find it much more comfortable and profitable, to simply preach to the choir and not "offend" anyone rather than to go into the marketplace where the lost are and have the guts to call sin sin.
That is why there are more churches, more ministries, more Christian media, than in the history of Christendom. Yet we continue to watch the nation deteriorate spiritually with each passing day.
I firmly believe this nation is in spiritual free fall. Liveprayer is NOT an idea, but has an 11 year track record of proving we can impact and change lives, see souls won to Christ, and on a national platform, help lead this nation back to God and Biblical values before it is too late.
Please pray over this and seek the Lord about helping me. Our time is short, and it is going to take a few key people to take their stand, risk life, liberty, and treasure to see souls won to Christ and this nation repent and turn back to God and His Truth!!!
