Daily Devotional for Friday May 18, 2012
Helping Liveprayer as We Stand for Jesus Christ
Helping Liveprayer as we stand for Jesus Christ and HIS TRUTH in these last days! Will you help me urn this nation back to God and Biblical Truth, while leading the lost and hurting to faith in Jesus Christ? God has opened the door for Liveprayer to be back on secular TV, five nights a week, nationwide, starting September 1st. What an incredible door the Lord has opened for us, at such a critical time. Sadly, few these days are willing to go into the marketplace with the uncompromised Truth of God's Word.
For 5 yrs, the Liveprayer TV program impacted hundreds of thousands of lives by dealing with the issues of the day from a Biblical worldview. Today, there is a dearth of God's Truth available to the lost and hurting masses. Liveprayer has the history and proven results of changed lives by helping people deal with the problems in life from a Biblical perspective. Lives impacted for Christ and saved souls has been the legacy of our work for 20 years now!
In just 100 days, the power of God's unadulterated Word will be helping to change lives and save souls around this nation. However, in the meantime, our daily work here at Liveprayer that is the foundation of our service to the Lord must continue.
Do you realize every 24 hours, this ministry reaches 2.4 million people worldwide with God's Truth on the issues of the day and that people deal with in their lives? Every 24 hours, we receive 40,000 emails for prayer that our wonderful team of 700 retired pastors send personal responses to. Well over 70 million since we started Liveprayer 13 years ago. Most important, each week we see apx. 2,000 souls come to faith in Jesus Christ, over 600,000 since we started. Isn't God great?
Between the Daily Devotionals, the Daily Video Message, the weekly Liveprayer Church service, apx 15 media interviews, Liveprayer puts on an incredible amount of unique content each day that no other minsitry with huge staffs produce. Most critical is that Liveprayer is one of the few places people can find God's Word without filter, without compromise, and without fail each and every day!
As only God can do, we do all of this for just a bit over $1,000 a day! That is the budget of a local church with a congregation of 500 that meets once a week!!!
My biggest concern today is these getting through these next 110 days. Once we are on TV nationwide, we will bring a new audience to our daily work and a percentage of that audience will be new donors to help support all we do each day here at Liveprayer for the Lord. We still have to make up the last $5,000 of our April operations, cover our $40,000 May budget, and the $40,000 we need to operate in June, July, and August. That is a total of $165,000 over the next 100 days.
I am praying today for the Lord to send 1 person who can immediately help me with a special one-time gift of $5,000 to cover our April shortfall, and 160 people who can make the sacrifce to send a special one-time gift of $1,000. Obviously, whatever God lays on your heart to give is deeply appreciated, since the Bible teaches to give according to our ability to give. However, I know there is one person reading this right now who has the ability to send a special one-time gift of $5,000, and 160 who can send a special one-time gift of $1,000.
There is no better soil you can sow into than God's work here at Liveprayer, and our track record of faithfulness literally 24/7/365 for 13 years now!!!
I am asking that you take a moment and pray right now about being one of the 161 I need to insure that between now and September 1st, all of our basic operational needs are met! God has always raised up a few to feed the many, since the widow gave her last meal to the prophet and the little boy fed the multitudes with a few loves and fishes. Will you make this sacrifice and stand with me today???

I love you and care about you so much. Together, we have done much through the years here at Liveprayer, however, our work is not finished. Our final work is underway, and the TV program starting in September is the final piece to help make that happen. We are going to do our part to change the spiritual course of this nation, to call this nation to repentant and back to God and His Truth, while leading the lost and hurting to faith in Jesus Christ.
I can't do this alone. Will you stand with me and help me?
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
