Daily Devotional for Tuesday August 26, 2014
Everyday at Liveprayer for 15 Years Now We Get Hundreds of Wonderful Praise Reports
(John 14:6, 1 Corinthians 15:57)
"What a blessing this ministry has been to me over the years, as I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of '07 at age 37, I have a husband and four children...we went to church 3 days after diagnosis and have been there ever since...I was always AMAZED at your scripture and teaching and it lined up with my life and our church teaching....I truly saw the hand of God reaching through my computer and eventually led way to my own prayerchain ministry online and within our church. I was searching online for comfort and found you to help me through my times of trouble. "
"I know that you get thousands of prayer requests a day and won't remember me, but I e-mailed you in March. I was 3 months pregnant then, and a very high risk. I am now 8 1/2 months pregnant and we are finally carrying a baby after a difficult pregnancy with my son (who is a miracle) and three years of trying with two miscarriages. I want to thank you so much for faithfully praying for me and my unborn baby!! So far we have had a very healthy pregnancy, we have had a few scares along the way, but everything has always checked out fine. I have wonderful doctors who are watching me very closely, and we are expecting a healthy baby girl in about 4 weeks!"
"I've been watching your program this week via the internet and I've given my heart and life to Jesus. I want the peace and joy in my heart that can only experienced through salvation. I thank the Lord tonight for loving me and dying for my sins so that I might be saved. Please send me the booklet that you spoke of on the show in order that I may grow in my Christian life."
"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 months 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!"
"Dear Bill, in October of 2013, I was watching you on TV. I never was religious and barely believed in God. A particular show made an impact on me and I took Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I have never once regretted and I have grown in my faith and relationship with the Lord. I want to say 'Thank you.' I read the Bible, go to Church and have become a better person. Pastor Keller, you made a BIG difference in my life. God bless you and thank you for leading me to Jesus and changing my life!"
Every day at Liveprayer for 15 years now, we get hundreds of wonderful praise reports like these from people all over the world. We have over 8 MILLION of them archived from the 100 million plus emails we have responded to since Liveprayer began. Over 800,000 souls we know of have come to faith in Christ during our 15 yrs online and 10 years on TV! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
Those who have prayed, and those who have sacrificed to support God's work here these past 15 years, will share in great rewards when their journey is over and they are welcomed into Glory!!!
As we head into the final 5 days of August, I am in awe of God and how He has moved through Liveprayer during this year. Despite the incredible financial challenges we have faced the past 5 years, He has continued to move on the hearts of friends like you and provide the resources we need to keep pressing forward saving souls every day, responding to over 40,000 emails for prayer daily, and getting His Truth into the marketplace.
Deuteronomy 8:19 says, "If you ever forget the LORD your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed." We have not only worshipped and bowed down to every false god and idol there is, but have unleashed sin of every kind in our land. God will not be mocked!
The reality is, we are on the verge of seeing the culmination of 22 years of ministry with the opportunity to help usher in a real spiritual revival in this nation with millions of lost souls coming to faith in Jesus Christ. The time is very short. We have squandered God's many blessings that He has poured out on this nation the past 200 years.
People are hungry for Truth. At this time, people are desperately looking hope and answers. We have the only true hope there is and the only answers for each person and our nation. This nation is RIPE for revival, and the Holy Spirit has showed me that what we are doing, and will be doing here at Liveprayer, will be the catalyst to spark the revival and see a true spiritual renewal in our nation. Turning back to God and His Truth is our ONLY hope, and time is running out for us to do that!!!
On the 31st of this month, we celebrate the 15 year anniversary of Liveprayer. Over 2.5 million people worldwide are fed every day FREE through Liveprayer because of those who make the sacrifice to help me. If you have not given for a while, but God has blessed you through Liveprayer, please pray about sending a gift of $15, $150, or $1,500, or $15,000 this month. That is $1, $10, $100, or $1,000 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!
***AUGUST FINANCIAL UPDATE: With only 5 days left in August, we still require $38,000 for our basic August internet operations and the $25,000 we require for our August TV budget. $10,000 of that August internet budget was due the first days of the month for the bandwidth we require simply to operate. --->I have been in prayer all weekend for 1 or 2 friends to help with special gifts to get the $10,000 we desperately need from the first week of August that is over 2 weeks past due!!!
CHICAGO TV UPDATE/VICTORY REPORT! PRAISE GOD!!! One of our new friends from Chicago made a huge sacrifce last week of $15,000 to insure the program would not be cancelled. That gift leaves us needing one more payment of $22,000 by the end of the month to clear-up the amount we have been in arrears for several months now. This will insure the Liveprayer TV program can continue "live" every Monday-Friday from 11pm-1am in the great Chicagoland market of 10 million people. During the 6 months we have been on, tens of thousands of lives have been impacted and over 4,000 souls we know of come to faith in Jesus! Please pray for someone to help me insure we can keep this INCREDIBLE door open to reach that great metropolitan area!
Pray with me for the $85,000 we require to over the last 5 days of August to end the month with all of our financial obligations current! God uses human instruments. Everyone expects someone else to answer the call, and miss many of His blessings that flow from our obedience. Please take a few minutes today and ask the Lord what HE is calling you to do to insure this need is met over these next few days.
Over the past 15 years, men and women of God have stepped up at the 11th hour to insure the work of Liveprayer continued to move forward and impact lives worldwide each day! The Bible teaches to "give according to your ability to give." There is no gift you can give that is too small to disappoint God or too large to impress Him! Simply pray, seek the Lord about what HE is calling you to do today to help me than be obedience. Our blessings flow from our obedience, so don't expect someone else to do what God is calling you to do.
I desperately need 4 or 5 or my friends who are willing to make a sacrifce of $5,000 or more right away. Many have the ability to utilize a credit card that you have for emergencies and pay off your gift over the next several month. Others can deposit the funds directly into our Wells Fargo account if there is a branch convenient to you. Still others can overnight a check today to our office in St. Petersburg.
With this coming Sunday the end of the month and Monday a holiday, it is critical that we receive a good portion of the $85,000 we require by the end of the month before this Friday!!! I am in prayer, counting on 4 or 5 of my dear friends to go the extra mile and make the sacrifce to help me today. If the need wasn't critical, I would not bother you. If you can help me with a special gift of $5,000 or more, please let me know right away at: email@example.com

I love and care about you so much. Know that you and your family are in my prayers each day. Together, we have been used by the Lord to impact millions of lives worldwide. Thank you for your love, prayers, and support as we take our stand for Christ in these last days. The time is very short, our time is now to lead this nation back to God and His Truth!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ, Bill Keller
