Daily Devotional for Monday October 20, 2014
Every Day at Liveprayer We Get Hundreds of Wonderful Praise Reports
"Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God." Psalms 20:7
"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."
"Bill, I want you to know you have came in my life by GOD alone! I just want you to know you have been one of the only gateways of spiritual feeding in my life - since I have let my heart and focus wonder off the path of GOD! Keep me in your prayers and thank you for faithfully being there every morning for me and so many others who depend on you!"
"Hello Bill, I have just prayed the prayer to accept Jesus as my Savior. I am requesting more information on living as a better Christian. May God bless you and your family for all of your wonderful work."
"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."
"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 over 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. Tens of millions of lives around the world have been impacted, over 800,000 souls we know of have come to faith in Christ during our 15+ yrs online and 11+ 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, have played a HUGE role in all God has done in so many lives over the years and will share in great rewards when their journey is over and are welcomed into Glory!!!
As we head into the final 72 days of 2104 and the final 11 days of this month, I am praying like never before for our nation and God's work here at Liveprayer. My friend, I have warned you for nearly a decade now about how close this nation was to seeing the ultimate judgment of God for our sins and rebellion. We implemented the Jonah Project, The Remnant, both designed to help lead this nation back to God and His Truth!
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!
As the years have gone by, as this year has unfolded, I have seen clearer than ever the ultimate fate of our nation if we don't repent, turn back to God and His Truth. Last November, God clearly showed me that this year, 2014, there would be start of a revival in this nation and we would see the beginning of a turning back to God and His Truth.
The unlikely source of this beginning will be SATAN! Satan will so overplay his hand in trying to destroy this nation once and for all, he will be largely responsible for creating the atmosphere that will have tens of millions of people in such fear, despair, and hopelessness, they will be open to anything..EVEN JESUS!!!
Telling people the truth, especially such a difficult truth is not easy. It certainly isn't something you do if you are trying to raise money. People want to give to bricks and mortar, they want to give to those who will lie to them about the blessings their gifts will bring or those who will tickle their ears and give them false hope like a drug to make them forget their problems for a minute.
The soul of our nation is on the line and the eternal souls of tens of millions of men and women are at stake. I can't and won't lie offering false hope to you simply to generate money! However, there is true hope for our nation and each person if we are willing to repent, turn to God and His Truth. It was the path Jonah shared with Nineveh that spared them God's wrath for a season, and it is the path God has given us in His Word for each person to know the peace, joy, and abundance of this life!
Liveprayer has faithfully followed the Lord daily over these many years, never compromising His Truth, never selling out for money. It has been a road of pure faith, not dependant on spewing lies and false hope to the masses, but the Truth of God's Word and the hope we have in Christ. It is NOT a formula to amass millions. The OT prophets lived day to day without the material riches of the world, but their goal was not to amass the things that will one day be gone, but to lay up true riches for eternity.
ALL THEY ASKED WAS FOR THE DAILY SUSTENANCE TO DO THE WORK GOD CALLED THEM TO, AND THAT IS ALL I HAVE ASKED FOR! I DON'T ASK YOU TO HELP ME BUILD BUILDINGS, OR BUY THE LUXURIES OF THIS LOST WORLD, BUT TO SIMPLY HELP ME KEEP IN PLACE THIS INCREDIBLE PLATFORM ONLINE AND TV THAT HAS PROVEN OVER THE YEARS TO BE EFFECTIVE IN BRINGING GOD'S TRUTH AND THE HOPE AND LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST TO THE LOST AND HURTING MASSES!
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. Liveprayer is a work God has raised up for this moment in human history, and it is not an accident YOU are part of his work here. THIS MINISTRY AND YOU ARE BOTH HERE FOR A DIVINE PURPOSE IN HUMAN HISTORY!!!
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!!!
My friend, Liveprayer is in a very serious financial position!!! I am not surprised since this is one of the very few voices to the lost masses that has faithfully warned the people and satan's only way of silencing me is through our finances! I have been fasting and praying all weekend simply for the funds we REQUIRE to simply for the existing platform we have to share God's Truth each day with this lost world!
***As we have less than 2 weeks left in October, we are still $7,000 short of covering the balance of our September shortfall for our basic internet operations, as well as the $28,000 we are behind as of the end of September for our Chicago TV contract, leaving us requiring immediately $35,000 so we can begin to work on the $65,000 we require for our basic October internet ($40,000) and TV operations ($25,000).
--->That $7,000 left from our September shortfall and $23,000 of our October internet operations from the first weeks of this month are critically past due!!! I am desperately praying for one or two of our friends who God has blessed with the resources to help me with the $30,000 I require immediately for the ongoing operations of Liveprayer.com, to step up and allow the Lord to use you at this crucial time when now more than ever the often lone voice of Liveprayer must be heard loud and clear in the marketplace as we seek to turn this nation back to God and His Truth!!!
By the grace of God, our core TV operations that covers the satellite feeding over 80 stations nationally and our internet feed "live" every Monday-Friday from Midnight to 2am EDT are current through September! However, our separate contract for Chicago that represents a market of over 10 million people we reach on a major local station every Mon-Fri from 11p-1a (Chicago time) is $28,000 past due!
Since we are behind, the station has cut us back to just one hour for the balance of this month, and if we can't get our account current by THIS WEEK, they will cancel the program! We have fought to keep the incredible blessing God bestowed on us this past February, and every month we have more and more people helping us from the Chicagoland market so that we are only a few months away from having those costs 100% covered by our viewers.
--->Please PRAY and if you have the ability to help me with the $28,000 we need THIS WEEK to get current and be that "ram in the bush" or the "young man sacrificing his lunch so the multitudes could be fed," contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Pray about a special one-time year-end gift of $1,000 or more to help me insure Liveprayer continues to be a beacon of light to so many each day! Many will be getting a year-end bonus. So of you have recently sold a home, some property, a business, stocks, or something else. Please pray about sending a portion of those funds to help God's work here at Liveprayer!

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. 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 as God uses our faith and efforts and the Liveprayer ministry pieces to turn this nation back to Him and His Truth!!! Will you stand and fight with me???????
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
