Daily Devotional for Thursday February 3, 2011
Leading a Nation Back to God and His Truth
Leading a nation back to God and His Truth! My only goal left after 20 yrs of ministry, is to allow God to use me and His work here at Liveprayer to change the spiritual course of this nation. You can look at the goals of every major church, ministry, and "Christian superstar" in this nation, and you will not find ONE who has as their goal, leading our nation back to God and His Truth.
Why? Simple. They are only interested in building their own fiefdoms and advancing their agenda which is to amass as much wealth as they can. Oh, don't get me wrong, they all talk a good game. TBN talks about saving souls around the world, yet their programming is geared 100% to people who are already Christians that has allowed them to amass hundreds of millions of dollars offshore and in their vast real estate and stock holdings here under their non-profit organization.
For what? They and their on-air "money-raisers" beg people to give all they have by using perversions of Scripture to advance THEIR kingdom, not God's! The fact is, if they were interested in souls, in seeing a spiritual change in this nation and nations around the world, they would be using their hundreds of millions to do exactly that. They would be front and center in the mainstream media, yet the only time they have been in the media is when Paul Crouch paid hundreds of thousands of donor dollars to a former male employee he was accused of having sex with.
Instead, like their on-air money-raisers, Benny Hinn, Rod Parsley, TD Jakes, Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyers, and a host of others, they are only interested in using whatever tricks and tactics to con people who already know the Lord (over 98% of those who watch Christian TV are already Christians), to fill their coffers.
From day one, nearly 20 yrs ago, I vowed that my ministry, Liveprayer.com that has been online for nearly 12 years now, would be a place for the hurting to find hope, the lost to find salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, ALL AT NO CHARGE, and be an outreach on the Internet, television, and radio to the lost masses who will never hear the Truth of the Bible otherwise.
I am very aware I could have used my time and talents these past 20 yrs to create my own empire like so many of the "Christian stars" have. However, that was never the reason I got into the minsitry, and certainly has never been my motivation for a moment. My only goal was to see the lost won to faith in Jesus. That can only happen OUTSIDE the four walls of the church and the Christian media!!!
As I come to you today, after faithfully serving the Lord these past 20 yrs, refusing to compromise His work at Liveprayer.com for nearly 12 yrs despite the never-ending temptations and opportunities to do so every week, I am asking for you to pray for me today. Pray for the Lord to send those people who have been blessed by the Lord with vast resources and have the ability to help me. Pray that those who can will step up and allow their lives to count for Jesus by impacting the eternal souls of millions for all eternity!
I will give me last breath, to finish the race I have been called by the Lord to run. With $8 million dollars, a large amount of money, yet virtually nothing in the world's economy, Liveprayer can literally change in the spritual course of this nation. We DO NOT have to be in the spiritual abyss we are currently in! We have the numbers to change things overnight, but our voice is fractured. What we don't have is the vehicle in place to do it. LIVEPRAYER IS THAT VEHICLE!!!
This is not about fame, fortune, or anything else. If I was a sell-out, I would have done that many years ago. This is about changing the spritual direction of our nation, of the world, and seeing millions of souls won to faith in Jesus Christ. Liveprayer has the proven pieces in place to make it happen. We are only lacking the "fuel," the $$$, to stand in the marketplace and take on the minions of satan who promote every type of sin and debauchery you can name without opposition!
The key is the $500,000 we need right away for the permanent "9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero." After praying, the most efficient way to get this initial amount in on time is to break it up into 100 $5,000 units. So far, we have had 10 units committed, I still need 90 more people to make this sacrifce.
We will be placing a gorgeous plaque in the lobby of the new center with 100 engraved leafs, each one in honor or memoriam of someone special in the life of the person giving the $5,000 unit for that leaf. Also, for a special gift of $100,000, we will name the new chapel in honor of a person the donor designates.
Additionally, I need 100 people to give a gift of $1,000 for the "9-11 Memorial Prayer Room." We currently have 10 of these units committed, meaning we need 90 more to make this sacrifce. We will also have a special plaque there with 100 leafs engraved in honor of the person the donor designates.
--->Lastly, to help cover the construction costs of the new "9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero," we have 10,000 bricks that people can personally engrave for $100 each, that will form the main walls of the sanctuary where souls will be saved, and a nation will be turned back to God and His Truth!!! 100 people have made this commitment so far, meaning I need 9,900 more to make this sacrifice. This is an incredible opportunity to honor someone you love, and memorialize them at a place millions of people will visit, and God will use to bring revival to this nation!!! To get 1 or multiple personally engraved bricks, please go to: www.liveprayer.com/brick
These funds, just under $2 million dollars, will allow us to open the permanent "9-11 Christian Center at Ground Zero" and fund its' operations for the first year. I am asking you today to pray about taking 1 or more of the $5,000 or $1,000 units we are offering, or at least one of the $100 engraved bricks. I realize for many this could be an incredible sacrifce, but when have you ever had the opportunity to be part of something that can literally change the spiritual direction of this nation???????
The other $6 million dollars gives us the ability to take the Liveprayer TV program to the nation, "live," 5 nights a week to counter the lies of satan that are promoted 24/7 on secular television. Nobody is going to give me money for such a program, but we have the ability to buy our way on to a national secular television network, 5 days a week, for a year. NOBODY IS DOING THIS. SOMEBODY MUST! WE HAVE BEEN EFFECTIVELY DOING THIS EFFECTIVELY FOR 8 YRS NOW AND IT NEEDS TO BE SEEN BY TENS OF MILLIONS NATIONWIDE!!!
I AM ASKING ANYONE WHO IS READING THESE WORDS TODAY, THAT CAN MAKE A GIFT OF $500,000 AND UP TO PRAY. I KNOW THAT ANYONE IN YOUR SITUATION IS INUNDATED WITH OPPORTUNITIES TO FUND THIS AND THAT. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN OPPORTUNITY TO USE YOUR BLESSINGS TO MAKE A REAL IMPACT ON NATIONS, HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF SOULS, THIS IS IT. CONTACT ME AND LET'S CHAT ABOUT HOW YOU CAN MAKE THE GREATEST IMPACT. AFTER 20 YRS OF MINSITRY, 12 YRS ONLINE, WE HAVE THE PROVEN TRACK RECORD OF TOOLS TO MAKE AN INCREDIBLE IMPACT ON THIS NATION, THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD, AND THE ETERNAL SOULS OF HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS WORLDWIDE. Contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
HOW MUCH GREATER IS IT TO GIVE TO A PROJECT THAT WILL GUARANTEE TO BRING GOD'S TRUTH TO THE MARKETPLACE, GIVE HOPE TO THE HURTING, SALVATION TO THE LOST, AND HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TURN THIS NATION BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH???
I have been talking about this now for 3 years, and we are finally in a place, with all of the pieces in place to make it happen! This is not about building a building, or buying a new private jet, or anyhting else churches and ministries raise tens of millions for. This is about literally turning our nation back to God and His Truth while impacting our culture with the Truth and bringing hope and salvation to the hurting and lost.
NOW IS THE TIME AND THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!!!
Obviously, anyone who is able to give a gift of any amount is encouraged to do so. The Bible tells us to give according to our ability to give, and for some that may be just $5, for others it could be $50,000. I am asking everyone to do your best to help me between now and the end of the month.
However, I am asking you to pray today about helping me with at least one of the $1,000 or $5,000 units. I know there are people reading this right now who have the ability to make that special one-time sacrifice between now and the end of the month!!!

I love you and care about you so much. Do you want to do something great for God with your life??? STAND WITH ME!!! I CAN'T DO THIS ALONE!!! I am asking you today to simply pray about what God may be calling you to do to help me with this effort.
I am also asking you to please forward this to every person you know, personally reach out to those who God has blessed with financial resources and encourage them to support this new work, and share this email with your pastor and ask him to pray about having your church make a special missions gift towards this effort. I will keep you posted how we are doing with our financial goals over the coming weeks and months.
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!
When this brief journey through life is over, what do we have to show for it? The only lasting legacy we have are those things we did for the Lord. I have taken my stand and will proclaim His truth with my dying breath. Today, I am asking you to pray about joining me and let's turn this nation back to God and His Truth!!!
Will you stand and fight with me???????
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
