Daily Devotional for Monday December 22, 2014
***A MOST BLESSED CHRISTMAS FROM LIVEPRAYER!!! ( Please click this special link for your Christmas greeting; http://liveprayer.com/mc14/ )
Blessings!!! I pray you and your family have a most blessed Christmas this week, and that the coming new year is one of health, joy, peace, and prosperity my friend! Despite the daily financial challenges we have faced each month, thanks to dear friends like you Liveprayer has faithfully fulfilled our daily work for the Lord as we are now into our 16th year online and preparing for our 12th year on TV. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
During 2014, the Daily Devotional went to our current subscriber base of apx 2.5 million people worldwide every day. We received, prayed over, and responded to a little over 14 million prayer requests, the interactive Liveprayer TV program aired on non-Christian stations "live" 260 nights for 2 hours each night, and most important over 80,000 souls we know of came to faith in Jesus during this past year bringing the total to a little over 900,000 people throughout the world we know of who have committed their hearts and lives to Christ by faith since Liveprayer began in August of 1999. Again I say...TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!!
I DEEPLY appreciate your love..prayers and financial sacrifce during this year. All we have accomplished, all of the lives impacted each day and souls saved WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED WITHOUT YOUR FAITHFUL SACRIFCE TO GOD'S WORK HERE AT LIVEPRAYER!!!!
We have laid a great foundation this past year thanks to your prayers and sacrificial gifts which will bear much fruit in the coming year as we see this nation begin to turn back to God and His Truth! With all of the turmoil we face in our government, nation, and world, with the judgment of God raining down on our land, it is the only answer and only hope! Liveprayer is the only major minsitry with this true vision AND track record of years of preparation using our internet and TV resources to save the soul of this nation from God's wrath and judgment for our sins and wickedness!
As we head into the final days of the year, we have a commitment from one dear friend of $4,000 to finally cover the balance of our November internet and TV operations. That leaves us with only these final days of the month and year to cover the $40,000 we require for our December internet operations and the $25,000 we require for the TV program in December. This burden becomes greater since may people are off work, traveling, and "unplugged" during these last days as they celebrate Christmas and New Years!
$10,000 of our December internet operations from the first week of the month is critically past due. I am praying for ONE OF OUR FRIENDS who can help me TODAY with a special one-time, year-end gift to Liveprayer to insure that $10,000 operational need is covered. If you can wire, make the extra effort to direct deposit into our Wells Fargo account, overnight, or put your gift on a credit card or through PayPal, please let me know ( firstname.lastname@example.org ). Thank You for the ONE God is speaking to about this need and His blessings for your obedience!
Please do me a favor and pray about helping me with a special year-end gift to insure we can cover the $65,000 we need for our December operations, especially if it will help you with your 2014 taxes. It would be a great use of some of the funds God has entrusted into your care and you will make no greater investment than in impacting the spiritual course of this nation and individual lives for Christ while helping to lead lost souls to faith in Jesus!!!
--->I am asking everyone to pray about what you can do to help me For those able, 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! Just 65 people would insure we end the year with 100% of our basic internet and TV operations current!!! The Bible teaches to give according to your ability to give. For some that may be $5, for other it may be $20, for others it may be $50. Still others God has blessed and you can make a sacrifce today of $100, $300, $500, $1,000, or more.
Never forget that it is not the amount God sees, but your sacrifice, and He will honor your heart and bless you above and beyond what you can ask or think as you obey His voice!
TO GIVE A GIFT TO LIVEPRAYER, you can use your major credit card on our secure server at: www.liveprayer.com under the "Donation" link, you can give using your PayPal account using my email address: email@example.com,or you can mail your gift to: Liveprayer, 6660 46th Ave. North, St.Petersburg, FL 33709.

THANK YOU again for your love, prayers, and generous sacrifices over this past year. Please know that you and your family are in my prayers each day. Together, we ARE making a difference in the lives of people worldwide each day, and most important, the eternal souls of people who without Jesus will die and be eternally separated from God their Creator!
You and your family have a most blessed Christmas and may 2015 be the best year yet as we press forward for His glory!!! AMEN!!!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ,
***SPECIAL COMMENTS ON EXECUTION OF 2 NYPD OFFICERS: Sadly, in several Devotionals over the past month and many nights on the Liveprayer TV program, I told people the tragedy that unfolded in Brooklyn Saturday afternoon would happen. Let me say without hesitation that the blood of NYPD Officers Wenjian Lieu and Rafael Ramos is on the hands of President Barack Hussein Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, the executives, hosts, and commentators on CNN and MSNBC, New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio, race-extortionist Al Sharpton, and anyone else who for their own personal and/or political gain has irresponsibly ginned up the racial animus in this nation and demonized all police officers.
They sat back as the mobs they inspired cried out for "dead cops" and thug rappers were creating videos glorifying killing police officers. Pray for the families of these two dead NYPD heroes. Also, pray for this nation that is closer to degenerating into pure anarchy, anarchy that is being led by our very government as it embraces terrorists, communists, and radicals of every ilk. Our nation was given a crystal clear message that unless we turn back to God and His Truth, His ultimate wrath and judgment will continue to be poured out until we are destroyed!
UPDATED ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: As more details have come out, the evil individual who executed the two NYPD police officers has been identified as Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley. He was a Muslim, spoke some Arabic, and quoted the Qu'ran in many of his social media posts. Prior to his cowardly act of executing those two police officers, he stated on social media his actions would be "revenge for Michael Brown and Eric Garner."
Brinsley was the exact type of individual targeted in the "call to action" against the "evil police" you have heard over the past month from President Obama, AG Eric Holder, Mayor DeBlasio, Sharpton, and media outlets like CNN and MSNBC who irresponsibly for political, personal, and/or financial gain, have divided this nation by race and demonized law enforcement.
Most disturbing though has been the outpouring of praise for Brinsley and celebration over the execution of the two NYPD officers being expressed all over social media and in the "comments" of every online website reporting on this tragedy. (If you want your eyes opened, read some of the THOUSANDS of comments on this tragedy in the Huffington Post.) As we have been counting down the final 100 days of this year, it is more evident than ever that there is a bold and fast growing evil segment of this nation larger than most people understand!
"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. Like the nations the Lord destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the Lord your God." Deuteronomy 8:19,20
***DID YOU MISS THIS CRITICAL DAILY DEVOTIONAL FROM FRIDAY? In the Friday 12/19/14 DD, I shared the sobering message on this this past Wednesday was another 9/11-type day as our nation was attacked and compromised just as real as we were on that fateful day of 9/11/01! Please read and share it with everyone you know: http://www.liveprayer.com/ddarchive3.cfm?id=5792
