Daily Devotional for Friday July 9, 2010
The Devotional Everyone Looks Forward to is when I Share the Incredible Praise Reports We Receive
(Acts 4:20; Revelation 12:11)
By far the Devotional everyone looks forward to is the 4 times a year I share some of the incredible praise reports we receive every single day here at Liveprayer. One of the things that I wish I could do, is let you read all of these great praise reports.
Even though we deal with email names and unseen people, I never forget for a moment that there is a very REAL person in need at the other end that God loves very much. It is amazing each day to see God healing people, restoring marriages, providing necessary finances, and meeting every kind of need imaginable.
We currently have an archive of over 5,000,000 Praise Reports that we have received in over nearly 11 years of ministry here on the Internet. Satan hates the "word of testimony" because it gives people hope. No matter what you are facing in your life today, never forget that the same God who has brought someone else out of the valley and led them to victory, is the very same God that will lead YOU out of the valley and to victory. Please enjoy this special Devotional of PRAISE REPORTS.
"Thank you for your prayers and spiritual support, they have been answered. My husband has returned. We are no longer going to divorce and we are working at beginning anew. God bless and keep you!"
"Thank You for praying! God restored all of the money that was taken from my account."
"I found out about Liveprayer last year right before I caught my husband in an affair. I had confided in my best friend my suspicions and she emailed help for a friend and forwarded me your very helpful article about infidelity. I have referred to this article a number of times and gave it to my husband to read before I allowed him back into our home. Your straightforward no nonsense writing style made such a difference in how I handled the situation. I don't know if I would have stayed and tried to work it out if it had not been for the openness about your own life and past experience with infidelity. Thank you and God bless all that you are doing."
"There are no words to express my sincere and deep appreciation for your help in simply just listening to me. I am not the same depressed and lonely person that wrote to you two weeks ago. I have started going to church two weeks ago and had a meeting with the pastor last week and another meeting tomorrow. Without your show and your kindness I would not have had the strength to attend church."
"I prayed the prayer of salvation, and when I was saying it I was crying. I am hurting and I can't take it anymore. I need Jesus to come into my life and take control. Please send me some more information."
"I've been watching your program this week via the internet and I've given my heart and life to Jesus. I want the peace and joy in my heart that can only experienced through salvation. I thank the Lord tonight for loving me and dying for my sins so that I might be saved. Please send me the booklet that you spoke of on the show in order that I may grow in my Christian life."
"What a blessing this ministry has been to me over the years TOO, as I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 99 at age 37, I have a husband and four children...we went to church 3 days after diagnosis and have been there ever since...I was always AMAZED at your scripture and teaching and it lined up with my life and our church teaching....I truly saw the hand of God reaching through my computer and eventually led way to my own prayerchain ministry online and within our church. I was searching online for comfort and found you to help me through my times of trouble. "
"I know that you get thousands of prayer requests a day and won't remember me, but I e-mailed you in March. I was 3 months pregnant then, and a very high risk. I am now 8 1/2 months pregnant and we are finally carrying a baby after a difficult pregnancy with my son (who is a miracle) and three years of trying with two miscarriages. I want to thank you so much for faithfully praying for me and my unborn baby!! So far we have had a very healthy pregnancy, we have had a few scares along the way, but everything has always checked out fine. I have wonderful doctors who are watching me very closely, and we are expecting a healthy baby girl in about 4 weeks!"
"Praise God my secretary found the document. It was in her Inbox and never made it to my desk. Thanks for your prayers. I thank God for your ministry."
"All I can say is Praise God! He has given me a new job, a great starting salary, and the money to get me moved and into a new house. Not only that, but he has renewed my relationship to Himself and feel so wonderfully close to Him. Never let it be said God does not work or lead His children because I am a testimony that He does."
"Thanks everyone at Liveprayer for the prayers. My HIV test came up negative praise GOD.. and he gave me the strength to make it through the whole situation. God bless you all. I'll be praying for you too."
"I saw your show for the first time today was having a bad bout with depression. Thanks for reminding me what it's all about and filling me with hope. To be honest I kept watching the program, expecting you were a typical televangelist, to see what your pitch was going to be and it was really heartening to see you didn't have one .. just honest straight talk."
"Tell those that e mail you DO NOT GIVE UP.. I prayed for husband for 15 years.. We are about to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.. Your marriage is worth fighting for.. Just don't become weary.. Pray, pray and pray some more."
"The Lord has worked his wonders! Thank the Lord and thank you for your prayers! I am happy to announce that Josie Mae, 4lbs, 4oz., was born at 6 AM, August 11th. Not only were the doctors completely wrong about her ability to breathe... they were also wrong about the extent of the Arthrogryposis. She let out a healthy cry upon birth! She does have clubbed hands and feet and a hip problem, but they've already begun therapy on the hands and are to reset the hips this weekend. My sister in law is doing fine and couldn't be happier. Thank you again and praise the Lord! "
"My husband found a job! Praise God! I made a prayer request on his behalf a few weeks ago, and within 3 days, he started getting call backs for interviews. Within a week after that he had 3 job offers! And now, I am proud to say that he's found a job teaching 1st grade in the school that he really wanted! God is the Great Provider! And now my husband can provide for us too! Thank you to everyone who prayed for our situation. Prayer works and it is good to know that God is still in the blessing business. To God be the glory! Thank you liveprayer.com and God bless you all."
"Hello, I am new to allot of this, I went to church as a child and quit going when I was 12. I am now 42 and am committing my life to the lord. I have prayed the prayer on your site. Thank you foe your help. I know I will live a full life with God."
"My friends wife's biopsy came back neg. Praise be to our God, the one and only true God, the God above all Gods. Hallelujah!!!!"
"Greetings and Aloha from Honolulu, Hawaii. I prayed the prayer accepting Jesus into my life. I received a feeling of peace that is indescribable to put into words. My head is still spinning, but I feel great."
NOW YOU KNOW WHY I AM SO PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT I DO EACH DAY, AND WHY I AM WORKING SO HARD TO EXPAND THE OUTREACH OF LIVEPRAYER. GOD HAS RAISED UP THIS GREAT INSTRUMENT IN THESE LAST DAYS TO TRANSFORM LIVES. IT IS YOUR LOVE, YOUR PRAYERS, AND YOUR SACRIFICIAL GIFTS THAT MAKES ALL OF THIS POSSIBLE!

In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
