Daily Devotional for Friday June 17, 2011
The Emails We Get Each Day at Liveprayer
(1 Corinthians 15:57)
(from recent emails)
"I may be out of line. But I will use myself as an example. I keep saying I am going to become a faith partner with LivePrayer and I keep putting it off. I do not want to see this go away like a lot of good word ministries do, for a lack of money. The world can find money for so much junk, because the devil's kids will pay for their desires. We need to support our Father as well. I would hate to lose this site, it has truly saved my life spiritually, physically and mentally."
"Dear Brother Bill, I sent you a e-mail a few weeks earlier asking for you to remember my daughter that was pregnant and having problems... well I just wanted to let you know that she had my 1st grandchild on Mother's Day and he's a healthy 6 lbs and 14 oz. He's beautiful!! So please keep us all in your prayers and thank you again!"
"Brother Bill, I want you to know that your ministry has been an encouragement and a blessing to me. My wife and I have been out of church for awhile, but Thank God that we never lost our love for Him. We were struggling very much in our daily walk. Your ministry, thru liveprayer, has helped me tremendously and, I believe, helped us to get back on the right track. We are now attending church again and hopefully will continue to do so. I start every morning with liveprayer and I just wanted to say thank you and let you know that your ministry is definitely a blessing."
'One of the things that I praise God for often is your ministry. Part of the reason that I finally saw the truth about Jesus and God was that a friend forwarded one of your devotionals to me a couple of years ago. I've been getting them ever since, and I'm sure you don't remember me out of the thousands of e-mails you get every day, but one of your devotionals was the "straw that broke the camel's back" regarding leaving my church, an offshoot of the Mormon faith (RLDS, in my case). I know it may get discouraging at times, doing what you do, but I'm here to tell you that you've really helped at least one person to let Jesus in and let Him change my life."
"Thank-you for your devotions and thoughts, Mr. Keller. I accepted Jesus through Liveprayer, and you and your Devotionals have changed my life. God bless you!"
This is what we get in our email every day here at Liveprayer. For nearly 12 years, every day we have been faithfully serving the Lord and bringing His Truth and hope to the lost and hurting around the world. That has only been possible because friends like you pray for us, and make the sacrifce to give to support HIS work here at Liveprayer.
There are literally tens of millions of lost and hurting souls out there. Sadly, the church has extracted itself from the culture, and the only people truly reaching out to these lost souls are the cults and false religions of the world. It is time for the followers of Jesus Christ to wake up, stand up, and reach out with the Gospel! As Jesus said, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few."
At the end of this month, we will have some incredible opportunities to greatly expand our outreach, using the many tools we have developed over the last decade plus to take God's Truth into the marketplace for the lost and hurting masses to hear. It is an exciting time, in the world that is in chaos and for the most part, operating in complete rebellion to Almighty God.
***As we into the last 13 days of June, we have received $1000,000 of the $150,000 in donations and pledges I asked the Lord to deliver by the end of April. I am still walking by faith that by the end of June, we will bring in the final $50,000, plus cover our $40,000 June budget. I'm simply asking you to pray today and seek the Lord what He is calling you to do to help me during this month of May to insure all of our basic operational needs are met. Never forget that God will honor your heart as you obey His voice. Will you help me today?
Over these next 13 days, I am asking the Lord to bring together those who can give $5, those who can give $20, those who can give $50, those who can give $100, along with those who are able to send a special give of $1,000, $5,000, $10,000, or more, in order to cover the $90,000 we need by the end of the month to have all of our operational expenses covered and up to date.
Will you please take a minute today, and pray, seek the Lord what He is asking you to sacrifce. I desperately need $15,000 of the $90,000 total by this Monday to cover long overdue obligations. If you are able to overnight or wire a special gift of $5,000 or more, please contact me at: email@example.com and I will get you the details.
The world can raise billions for their projects designed to lead people to the depths of hell. The cults, false religions, and new age groups raise hundreds of millions lying to people they have the answer for their lives. Sadly, many Christian churches and ministries raise tens of millions to further their own "kingdoms."
The reality is, with just $15 million, in one year the spiritual course of this nation can be changed along with millions of souls making a true profession of faith in Jesus Christ. It hasn't been done because that is not the goal of vision of other ministries, thus they have never developed the proven tools to accomplish such a task.
Be in prayer as Liveprayer fulfills its' ultimate mission from God in the coming months...leading this nation back to God and His Truth, and helping millions of lost souls find faith in Jesus Christ!
TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THE SPIRITUAL COURSE OF THIS NATION WILE LEADING MILLIONS OF SOULS TO FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST!
