Daily Devotional for Thursday March 8, 2012
This is a Very Different Devotional Today
(1 Corinthians 15:57)
This is a very different Devotional today. I spent Wednesday in the emergency room, dealing with the effects from a spider bite last week. Monday morning, I noticed blood coming from my finger that had a small purple looking bruise with several small puncture marks. I woke up Tuesday morning dizzy, suffering from nausea, and was unable to even get out of bed. I thought it was some sort of flu, but when I was even worse Wednesday, I went to the emergency room to see what was going on. I am thankful for the wonderful care I received, and should be back to normal by Monday. I am simply asking you to take a few minutes and call out my name before the Lord for His healing touch.
These are challenging times in our nation, the world we live in, here at Liveprayer, and for so many families. Gas prices heading towards $5 a gallon, home foreclosures still on the increase, millions of people without a job or underemployed, civil unrest in the streets now a daily occurrence across our nation, and a Federal Government leading this nation into bankruptcy.
After a drop of nearly 65% in donations over the past 3 years due to the economic downturn, Liveprayer is doing all we can to simply continue with our basic daily operations, having cut everything possible to keep operating. We understand the struggles so many are facing, since the bulk of the 40,000 emails we respond to each day are from people simply trying make it from one day to the next.
It is in these times we can often start wondering where is God? Why has He forsaken us? The fact is God has not forsaken us, we have forsaken Him! The nation's of the world, including the United States, live in all out rebellion to God and His Truth. We bow down and worship every false god and idol man has created in his rebellious mind. Why is anyone surprised at the all out turmoil this world is in, and the enemies of God are on the rise!
My friend, there is only one hope for the United States, for Liveprayer, for you and your family, for every person alive...JESUS!!! He, and He alone is our only hope and answer for the problems in our nation, world, and each individual life. Now more than ever we need to turn to Him like never before. He promised to never leave us nor forsake us. Jesus doesn't lie. Now is the time we must reach out to Him like never before.
Liveprayer has cut back all we can to continue our daily operations, feeding over 2.4 million souls worldwide each day, sending personal responses to over 40,000 emails every day for prayer and counsel, all for free. We are on the verge of seeing 13 years of ministry online being fulfilled during this year as we step up to lead this nation back to God and His Truth and change the spiritual course of this nation while leading lost souls to faith in Jesus Christ!
NOW IS THE TIME AND THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!!! WILL YOU HELP ME TODAY!!!
As we are 8 days into March, we still need to bring $13,000 to cover our February shortfall, plus the $40,000 for our basic monthly operations in March. That is just over $1,000 a day to feed over 2 1/2 million people worldwide every 24 hours! I am asking you to stand with me today, help me today. The hour is at hand. It is our time to lead this nation back to the God of the Bible and lost souls to everlasting faith in Jesus Christ!!! Everyone can pray, and even if you can't give a major gift, you can sacrifce what the Lord is calling you to give, even if that is only $5. God is not impressed by the amount you give, only with your obedience as He guides you.

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.
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!!!
Know that you and your family are in my prayers each day. Thank you for your love, prayers, and support as we take our stand in these last days. The time is very short, Jesus is coming at any moment, OUR TIME IS NOW!!!.
--->I really need several people who have the ability to help me today, since $13,000 of our February operational budget has still not been met. If you can overnight or wire to our bank or FedEx $5,000 or more, please contact me for the instructions at: email@example.com
WE ARE GOING TO BRING GOD'S TRUTH TO TENS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE DAILY, SEE SOULS WON FOR CHRIST, AND CHANGE THE SPIRITUAL DIRECTION OF THIS NATION!!! WILL YOU HELP ME???
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
