Daily Devotional for Friday December 11, 2015
Will You Help Me Today?
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, thank you for meeting my daily needs as you have promised in your Word. I look to you and your alone for my sustenance through life, and thank you for your faithfulness. Please help me to be a good steward of the funds you entrust into my care during this life, and give me favor in my finances, and wisdom in my decisions. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
Will you help me today?
In November of 2007, 8 years ago, I wrote a Devotional stating that 2008 would be a monumental year, a year of great change. It was. We saw the financial crisis from the housing bubble being burst that saw trillions of real estate equity evaporate impacting tens of millions of people in this nation causing the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression with tens of millions losing their jobs that we have yet to recover from. We also saw the election of a new President who has spent his first five years in office as a true enemy of God and taking a stand for everything God opposes, helping to lead this nation deeper into the spiritual abyss.
However, starting in May 2013 with the re-launch of the Liveprayer TV program, we have enjoyed a high profile and public stand to turn this nation back to God and His Truth! All the pieces are in place enabling us to begin to turn this nation back to God and His Truth, to literally change the spiritual course of this nation with your help! My biggest issue today is getting through these next 55 days to end 2015.
With the economic downturn that started in earnest in 2008, I have had to come to you more often than I would like to ask you to pray about supporting His work here. During the first 9 years of Liveprayer, we only had to share our needs 3-4 times a month. With the economic downturn in the nation, we now have to share our needs 10-11 times each month, even though it is still less than 3% of the content we produce each month and more lives are being impacted each day, more souls coming to faith in Jesus each month that we have ever seen!!!
At the end of this life, I will stand before God our Creator like each person will. I will give an account for my life. The one thing I can honestly say when I die is that I never wavered, I never backed down from telling people the raw Truth of His Word, and that I never hesitated to boldly declare the only hope for each man is faith in Jesus Christ. That my friend, will be my lasting testimony!!!
I come today asking you to help me. Over 16+ years, Liveprayer has sent personal responses to over 120 MILLION emails. We still get over 40,000 a day. Tens of millions of live worldwide have been impacted. Over 1 million souls we know of have come to faith in Jesus. THIS IS MY ETERNAL LEGACY AND MY TRACK RECORD OF SERVICE THESE PAST 16+ YEARS!!! HOWEVER, MY JOB IS NOT FINISHED!!!
Whatever has been accomplished here at Liveprayer has been because of YOU! Your love, your prayers, and your sacrifce, have made all of this possible for tens of millions around the world!!! For those who have been part of the Liveprayer family for these many years, you know that I have never sent a Devotional like this unless it was an emergency. I don't play games when it comes to the finances. I simply share our needs, get on my knees, and trust God to move on the hearts of people to provide for our needs.
My friend, I am counting on you today. I need to hear from you today. This is critical, and I desperately need your help. We are so close to seeing the fulfillment of all Liveprayer has been raised up to be. I can't see everything stop now over a few thousand dollars, even if it was a million dollars. Somebody will lose that tonight in Vegas. Will you reach down, make the sacrifce, and help me today??? I desperately need you and will be in prayer for the Lord to move on your heart to help me!
I still need to bring in $6,000 to cover the balance of our basic November operations! I am praying for two of our friends who God has richly blessed people who can help me with a special one-time, year-end gift of $3,000 or more to help me clear up the bulk of that amount.
After we get October's shortfall taken care of, we need to focus on the $40,000 we require for our basic December internet operations, and the $25,000 we require for our December TV programs. The Bible teaches to give according to your ability to give. I need everyone to pray about what you can send, $5, $10, $20, $100, $1,000, whatever you are able and led to give to insure we can end November with all of our operations current.
Between now and the end of the year in 20 days, we will need $71,000 to cover all of our basic internet and TV operations to end the year with a zero balance. Please be praying about a special year-end gift to Liveprayer to insure that we end 2015 with all of our operations current. Just 71 of our friends making a special year-end gift to the Lord's work here of $1,000 would insure what we require for operations are taken care of.
WE HAVE THE ABILITY, BASED ON 16+ YEARS OF PIONEERING THE INTERNET AND BRINGING CHRIST TO THE MASSES ON SECULAR TV, OF BEING GOD'S AGENT TO TURN THIS NATION BACK TO OUR CREATOR AND HIS TRUTH. THE TIME IS NOW, OUR OPPORTUNITY IS UPON US, AND NOW MORE THAN EVER I NEED YOU TO HELP ME!
Please don't think that just because there are 2.4 million subscribers, someone else will take care of this. It has been friends like YOU over the years who God has spoken to, who have responded, who has made Liveprayer available to bring hope and salvation to so many. It will take someone like YOU today.
Also, I know there is someone reading these words who God has richly blessed, you have been praying about a place to use your resources where God can multiply them exponentially in the lives and eternal souls of men. THIS IS IT, AND A GREAT WAY TO MAKE A YEAR-END GIFT THAT IS GUARANTEED TO IMPACT LIVES WORLDWIDE EACH DAY AND SAVE SOULS!!!

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 work of God, and share this email with your pastor and ask him to pray about having your church make a special missions gift towards this effort. I will keep you posted how we are doing with our financial goals over the coming weeks and months.
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 to help lead this nation back to God and His Truth????????
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
