Daily Devotional for Monday March 24, 2014
Testimonies of Your Faith at Work
***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, how do we know what God has called us to do, especially if our God given talents are creative and not social. I alwas have thought the best talent God can give a person is the ability to speak and communicate with other people.
ANSWER: Everyone has been given different gifts and talents. We usually know what our gifts are because they are things we do well and enjoy. Often, over our life we may use many different gifts and talents. Just as we give of our treasure, equally important is giving the Lord those gifts and talents He has blessed us with to serve Him and for His glory
"Bill, I have always thought that the Lord works in unexpected ways, and often times through people and situations we would not typically expect. During your health issues last year, I experienced the reality of what it might be like without Liveprayer, and your spiritual leadership. I would suggest others may have felt this same sense of loss in your absence, and be inspired to give generously to keep Liveprayer thriving after having had a brief taste of what life might be like without Liveprayer and Pastor Keller."
"Pastor Bill, I was given an extension on my house. God is wonderful. I will try and make the best of the time that they have given me. Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement! They have gotten me through this terrible ordeal. God bless you for being their!"
"Pastor Bill, I prayed the salvation prayer. Praise Jesus and thank you Lord for your salvation!'
"Mr. Keller, I wanted to let you know that Sharon has passed away and thank you for everything you have sent her over these may years. It was something she looked forward to everyday and gave her such great strenght, especially in her final days."
"Bill, I've received your devotionals since a few weeks after you started. I never miss one, even if I've been away for a few days I still read them all and catch up. You have solidified my faith in Christ over these years and while I'm 60 years old, you've helped form my Christian personality. I pray for you by name each day and thank you for your stand for Christ!!"
"Pastor Bill, I have had several days of sobriety from porn and am feeling like there is light at the end of the tunnel! Your email back to me has given me much hope to persevere and get free from this addiction. Even brothers in Christ can get cough by the enemy if one is not vigilant enough. Thank you and God bless you."
"Pastor Bill, I'm Patrick and I just accepted the Lord into my life through your website and am asking for the book you mentioned. Thank you for being there!!!"
Please help me today and through the end of this month!!! I long for the day to do nothing but minister to people's needs which we do for tens of thousands every 24 hours, but if I don't share our needs, we won't be here!!! If people can give MILLIONS to animals, the arts, and everything under the sun, I certainly have no problem asking you help me minister to the hurting masses the church and major ministries have abandoned, God's Truth to the issues of the day, bring lost souls to faith in Jesus, and to possibly do something GREAT FOR GOD by leading this lost nation back to the Almighty and HIS Truth!!!!!!!
I am asking all of our friends to pray, and for those able, make the sacrifce to help me with the most generous gift you can this week!!! We get THOUSANDS of emails like the ones above DAILY because dear friends like you care, and dear friends like you make the sacrifce to help me! After 15 years of ministering to tens of millions worldwide, seeing over 800,000 souls come to faith in Jesus, Liveprayer is in a difficult place financially and I need your prayers and help at this time.
Our TV program has been back on "live" 2 hours from Midnight-2am EDT Mon-Fri since last May in about 40 cities over 38 states. This February, God opened an INCREDIBLE door putting us on a major TV station reaching ALL 10 million in the Chicagoland market, "live" every Mon-Fri from 11pm-1am CDT!!! We are working on a deal in place that will syndicate the program nationally, impacting millions of lives daily. Working in synergy with Liveprayer.com, these two powerful and proven instruments will enable us to help lead our nation back to God and HIS Truth.
TODAY, I NEED YOUR PRAYERS AND HELP TO FULFILL ALL WE HAVE IN PLACE! THESE ARE NOT VISIONS, THEY ARE A REALITY IMPACTING LIVE AND THE ETERNAL SOULS OF MEN!!! OUR CURRENT MONTHLY INTERNET BUDGET IS $40,000 TO MINISTER TO OVER 2.4 MILLION LIVES WORLDWIDE EACH DAY, WE RESPOND TO OVER 40,000 EMAILS FOR PRAYER EVERY 24 HOURS, AND EACH WEEK SEE APX. 2,000 PEOPLE WE KNOW OF COME TO FAITH IN JESUS!!!
THE TV PROGRAM, WITH A MONTHLY BUDGET OF $30,000 ($1500/PROGRAM) THAT HAS BEEN BACK ON SCORES OF NON-CHRISTIAN TV STATIONS "LIVE" FOR TWO HOURS 5 NIGHTS A WEEK IS AVERAGING APX. 200,000 VIEWERS AND GROWING! IT WON'T BE TOO MANY MORE MONTHS AS MANY OF THOSE VIEWERS BECOME SUPPORTERS OF OUR MINISTRY, THAT BOTH THE INTERNET AND TV BUDGET WILL BE COVERED THROUGH DONATIONS FROM OUR TV AUDIENCE ALONE!!!
DO THE MATH! FOR $840,000 A YEAR, WELL UNDER 1 MILLION, WE NOT ONLY MINISTER TO AND IMPACT LIVES WORLDWIDE 24/7/365. WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO TURN THIS NATION BACK TO GOD AND BIBLICAL TRUTH!!! MANY MINISTRIES PAY 2-3X OUR ANNUAL BUDGET FOR GAS IN THEIR PRIVATE JETS!!!
WE CAN DO WHAT WE DO, IMPACT THE TENS OF MILLIONS OF LIVES WORLDWIDE WE DO, REACH THE LOST AND HURTING MASSES AND SAVE SOULS, BECAUSE I DON'T OWN BUILDINGS/REAL ESTATE, HAVE HUGE PAYROLLS TO MEET EVERY WEEK, BUY/MAINTAIN PRIVATE JET(S), HAVE A FLEET OF BENTLEY'S OR OTHER HIGH END CARS, NOR HAVE MULTIPLE MANSIONS AT $5 MILLION AND MORE!!!
People spent over $3 BILLION on Christmas presents this past season. After seeing so many giving several billion to politicians during the recent election and for the upcoming mid-terms, money that will that will ultimately change NOTHING since our problems are not political but spiritual!!! If only a handful of God's people will give a fraction of these amounts, we can turn this nation, the nations of the world back to God and His Truth, and see a mighty harvest of souls in the process! I have a long track record of never bowing my knee to Baal, never compromising God's Truth for money, and am one of the few voices people can trust!!!
My concern today is two-fold. With just one week left in this month, due to having to use the first weeks of the month to cover a large shortfall from February, we still have to bring in the final $33,000 of our March basic operations. $10,000 of that $33,000 balance left is now 3 weeks past due and must be covered immediately. Please pray, and for those few who have the ability to send a special one-time gift of $5,000 or the entire $10,000 to help me cover this today!
If everyone else will give as God leads you, $10, $20, $50, $100, or more, by next Monday and the end of the month we can have the entire $33,000 we need to end the month with all of our obligations current. Please take a moment today and pray about what God is asking you to do to help me today, and give the most generous gift you can! Don't expect someone else to do what God is calling you to do. Help me today...please!
The second concern is a looming deadline for payment of $25,160 to the Chicago TV station due no later than this Friday. Our airtime cost is $25,160 per 4 weeks or $1,258 per night (2 hours live!). When you consider we are paying a bit over $600 an hour to reach a potential audience of 10 million people on a major TV station aired on all of the major cable outlets, DirecTV and DISH throughout the greater Chicagoland market "LIVE" from 11p-1m 5 nights a week, it is an INCREDIBLE door the Lord has opened for us!
We are already seeing support from the Chicagoland audience, and as we get into our 5th and 6th month on the air, no dobut we this monthly amount will be supported 100% by our new viewers!!! Getting past the next 3 months is critical. Last month, as we were about to be taken off the air, a dear friend of the ministry on his own, send a check to cover the March airtime to keep us on the air. If we don't cover this $25,160 by Friday, we will lose our Chicago station.
I KNOW THERE IS ONE PERSON, NO DOUBT MORE, BUT AT LEAST ONE PERSON READING THIS TODAY WHO CAN INSURE THAT BY THURSDAY SO WE CAN MAKE THE PAYMENT FRIDAY, WILL MAKE THE HUGE SACRIFCE TO COVER THIS $25,160 TO KEEP US ON THE AIR. EVERY NIGHT, AFTER LESS THAN 2 MONTHS, WE ARE ALREADY REACHING OVER 200,000 OUR OF THAT POPULATION OF 10 MILLION. THAT NUMBER IS GROWING AS MORE PEOPLE FIND THE PROGRAM EVERY NIGHT!!!
ONLY ETERNITY WILL SHOW YOU THE TRUE FRUIT FROM SUCH A SACRIFCE. IF GOD HAS BLESSED YOU TO BE ABLE TO HELP ME, JOIN A LONG LIST OF MANY OVER 15 YEARS WHO HAVE STEPPED UP IN THE 11TH HOUR TO KEEP LIVEPRAYER MOVING FORWARD AND ENABLING US TO IMPACT MILLIONS OF LIVES, LEADING COUNTLESS SOULS TO FAITH IN JESUS!!!

Thank You for your love, prayers, and sacrifice, and know I am praying for you and your family as we press on towards the prize. As churches ask people to give tens of millions of their buildings, major ministries scam people with false promises (That is why they are only on Christian TV and not secular TV!) that make Obama's LIES about Obamacare look tame so they can have their private jets, luxury cars, mansions, I am only interested in ministering to the needs of people, saving souls, and helping to lead this nation back to God and His Truth!!!!
WILL YOU HELP ME TODAY??? GIVE, AS YOU ARE ABLE, MAKING THE SACRIFCE AT THIS CRITICAL TIME!!!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
