Daily Devotional for Tuesday August 30, 2011
My friend, as we prepare to celebrate 12 years of Liveprayer tomorrow, I want you to know how much I love and care about you. Despite the trials and all that I've faced here at Liveprayer, it has been an incredible and fulfilling time of my life. Tomorrow, I am going to share with you not only my reflections of these past 12 years, but what God has showed me regarding the coming months. After 12 yrs of faithful service online, the Lord has opened some incredible doors to give us the opportunity in the coming months to lead this once Godly nation back to our Creator and His truth!!!
I am asking you to do 3 things today. First, email me your prayer request for your greatest need today. I never forget that even though over 2.4 million people worldwide get this Daily Devotional each morning, each person is a special and unique creation of God, and each person is going through some issue, even in those calm periods of life. Email me your need today to: firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can stand in agreement with you for that need.
Second, take 3 minutes, 180 seconds, and ask the Lord to give me the strength and wisdom I need, and bless His work here at Liveprayer as we prepare to fulfill our final work for our Savior and His Kingdom. You will never know how much I depend upon your prayers each day, as we take on satan without any hesitation or fear, sharing God's Truth with the masses and lead the lost and hurting to an everlasting relationship with Jesus.
Third, please pray about making whatever sacrifce you can make to help me today. For 12 yrs, I have refused to allow God's work here at Liveprayer to be turned into a marketing enterprise, selling books, bottled water, vitamins, and anything else you can imagine. We are here to minister to the daily needs of people, broadcast His Truth in the marketplace, and guide people to faith in Jesus. So every month for 12 years, I have walked by faith asking the Lord only for what we needed to operate that month, not a penny more, and got on my knees and prayed in faith for the Lord to move on the hearts of those who could help me
Even though we have struggled, especially in the last 2 1/2 years, we are still standing and still doing what we have done each day for 12 years, boldly and without shame sharing the hope we have in Jesus Christ. It is many dear friends like yourself who has made that possible. Thank you! So many times at the most critical time, the Lord has send someone with a gift, sometimes it was $20,000, sometimes it was just $5, as a sign to this weak servant He was there and looking over His work. That is why I trust Him daily with my entire life!
The only way I can say thank you or show my appreciation, is by waking up each morning and giving 100% of everything I have in every way to be a blessing to you and to those we reach daily though Liveprayer. I have stood with so many in their darkest hours of life, blessing newborn babies, loving men and women as they became man and wife, walking with those who went through the pain of divorce, grieving with those who have lost special people in their life, rejoicing with those who got a new job, believing with those who lost their job for a better one, asking the Lord to touch bodies that needed His healing touch, standing in agreement with those dealing with financial problems, and praying with so many for the needs of daily life we all face.
My life has been made complete by God granting me the joy of serving Him. However, nothing I have accomplished for the lord would have been possible without the love, prayers, and sacrificial support of so many. THANK YOU!
As we head into the last 2 days of August, please be in prayer with me for the operational finances we need to bring in right away. We ended July $25,000 short of covering our July operational budget and have finally covered that. However, we now need to bring in the $25,000 left on the August budget, plus the final $30,000 of the $150,000 I asked the Lord to deliver by the end of April so we could catch up all basic operational expenses we have been in arrears. That is $55,000 we need in the next 2 days to have all of our basic operational expenses covered.
--->I desperately need 1 or 2 people who are willing to make the sacrifce of $5,000 or more right away to help me cover $15,000 of that amount immediately. Will you please take a minute today, and pray, seek the Lord what He is asking you to sacrifce. If you have the ability to wire funds to us first thing this morning, or if you bank at Wells Fargo and can transfer some funds to us today, that would help me a great deal. I am praying and believing God for at least one person to hear His voice and help me. If the Lord is speaking to your heart, please email me at: email@example.com
Don't forget, on the 31st, we celebrate the 12 year anniversary of Liveprayer. Nearly 2 1/2 million people worldwide are fed every day FREE through Liveprayer because of those who make the sacrifice to help me. If you have never given to His work here, or not given for a while, but God has blessed you through Liveprayer, please pray about sending a gift of $12, $120, or $1,200 this month. That is $1, $10, or $100 for every year Liveprayer has been sharing His Truth and the hope and love of Jesus Christ with the lost and hurting around the world. It is friends like you who have enabled us to make that happen!

Please don't miss my special 12 year anniversary Devotional tomorrow as I share with you our final work here at Liveprayer. Time is short, and Jesus is coming at any moment.
