Daily Devotional for Wednesday March 18, 2015
I have Prayed the Prayer and Asked God to Come Into My Life
***WATCH VIDEO CLIP: Friday night on the TV program, like EVERY night, we get people who have never seen the program, up late at night and going through the challenges life can bring, flipping stations, and "accidentally" find Liveprayer. Such was the case Friday night of Sandra, a dear woman battling cancer, her husband involved in multiple affairs, alone, and simply crying out. THAT IS WHY FOR THE PAST 12 YEARS I HAVE DONE THE TV PROGRAM 'LIVE" ON NON-CHRISTIAN STATIONS AND NETWORKS, TO BE THERE FOR PEOPLE LIKE SANDRA!
Please take a few minutes out of your day, watch this clip of her call from last Friday, and pray for her as God brings healing to her body from cancer, moves on her husband's heart and heals their marriage, and brings her true peace and joy once again!

"God bless you, Bill Keller. I wish you were on earlier so I could watch more of your shows. Just wanted to say thanks, and tell you that you have brought me closer to God and Christ. I have told other people about you and your show and I pray you do go national so you can help more people. I think what you do is unbelievable. I think you are very special. God bless Bill Keller!!!"
"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!"
"Pastor Bill, I have been going to church since I was a young girl. I have been getting your live prayer emails for a while now. I just gave my life to Jesus! Thank you for this wonderful message that you send out everyday! I know you are helping and changing so many lives! God Bless you!"
"I have prayed the prayer, and asked God to come into my life. Now I am asking you for the extra reading materials that you have for me. Bless you, and bless your works. I have been following your messages for over 4 years now. Sometimes I have been depressed, and they have helped me out of depression. Other times, I have been happy, and they have helped remind me who really brought me all my happiness, and to not forget to thank my Maker. Thanks and blessings again for all you do!"
Paul wrote to his friends in Philippi, "Moreover, as you Philippians know, in the early days of your acquaintance with the gospel, when I set out from Macedonia, not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only; for even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me aid again and again when I was in need. Not that I am looking for a gift, but I am looking for what may be credited to your account. I have received full payment and even more; I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God. And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus."
As I read that passage of Scripture, it reminded me of my feelings towards you and the work here at Liveprayer. Paul took the Gospel to the lost and hurting in the world of his day by faith, trusting that God would provide for the day to day needs of his ministry. He looked to those that he ministered to to support his efforts to take Christ to those who were living without His love in their life. He was not ashamed to ask them to help him bring God's Truth to the world of his day and to save souls! THEY MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR PAUL TO DO WHAT GOD HAD CALLED HIM TO DO!
He reminded them that in their giving, they were not giving to Paul, but they were giving to God. It was their obedience and faithfulness that God would credit to their Heavenly account. Likewise, as you give to Liveprayer, you are not giving to Bill Keller, but you are giving to God. It is your obedience and faithfulness that God will credit to your Heavenly account. YOU MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO DO WHAT GOD HAS CALLED ME TO DO!
I made a choice 23 yrs ago when I answered God's calling to the ministry, that I was never going to seek funds for my own needs, or to build my own kingdom, only to bring God's Truth to the marketplace and build God's Kingdom. I have been faithful to do that month after month without wavering. We are at a critical time in the history of this nation. GOD IS OUR ONLY HOPE AND ANSWER!
This is the very time for which God has raised up Liveprayer. Our time is now. Now that the TV program is back on the air, over these coming months it will give us a highly visible place in the marketplace to help bring together the true remnant as one body and call this nation back to God and His Truth. One thing I have demonstrated over these past 14 years is that I will NEVER compromise God's Truth, even when it would be financially profitable to do so. Sadly, very few are left who won't compromise simply to raise money!!!
***As we are now 18 days into March, I am praying for several of our friends to pray about helping me with a special one-time gift to cover the last $13,000 of our February shortfall that we need to clear up ASAP.
It is critical that we get the balance of our February shortfall taken care of so we can being to work on the $40,000 we require for our March internet operations and the $25,000 for our March TV programs. $15,000 of our March internet obligations and $10,000 of our March TV budget are already past due!
That is $38,000 we need IMMEDIATELY, leaving us the final 2 weeks to cover the $40,000 balance of our March internet and TV budget!
--->I am asking 5 of our friends to PLEASE step up and help me in the next day or so with a gift of $5,000-$20,000 to enable us to take care of the $38,000 we require immediately. If you can wire or direct deposit to our Wells Fargo account (if you have a Wells Fargo branch close by), or overnight to our office a check, or give via your credit care of PayPal, it would help me greatly to get these critical payments taken care of right away.
PLEASE PRAY ABOUT STEPPING UP AND GOING THE EXTRA MILE TO HELP ME TODAY, MAKING THE SACRIFCE TO HELP INSURE WE CAN COVER THE $38,000 WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF AT THIS TIME SIMPLY FOR OUR DAILY MINISTRY OPERATIONS! ONLY ETERNITY WILL REVEAL THE LIVES IMPACTED AND SOULS SAVED AS YOU ALLOW GOD TO USE YOUR SACRIFICE TO FEED THE MULTITUDES!
If I had one or two people to call to take care of this like I had in past years I would. But I have to share this need with you and stand in faith for God to move on the hearts of several of our friends who have the ability to step up at this critical time to help God's work here!!!
Over these past 16 years, God has moved on the hearts of dozens of his people at critical times, and as they obediently responded and made great sacrifices in many cases, it allowed His work here to continue moving forward. I am at that place where I desperately need several of our friends to respond and make a significant sacrifce to help me! Will YOU rise up and let the Lord use you to be that "ram in the bush?"
Everyone can pray, and most can help me a gift, "giving as you are able to give," to insure we end the month of March with all of our financial obligations current!!!God Bless you!!!

I have been talking about this now for 7 years, and we are finally in a place, with all of the pieces in place to make it happen! This is not about building a building, or buying a new private jet, or anyhting else churches and ministries raise tens of millions for. This is about literally turning our nation back to God and His Truth while impacting our culture with the Truth and bringing hope and salvation to the hurting and lost.
NOW IS THE TIME AND THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!!!
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 with this effort.
I am also asking you to please forward this to every person you know, personally reach out to those who God has blessed with financial resources and encourage them to support this new work, and share this email with your pastor and ask him to pray about having your church make a special missions gift towards this effort.
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 and let's turn this nation back to God and His Truth!!!
Will you stand and fight with me???????
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
