Daily Devotional for Thursday August 25, 2016
People are HUNGRY for the Truth
(1 Corinthians 15:57)
***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!
Blessings my friend!
***WHETHER YOU REALIZE IT OR NOT, YOU ARE AND HAVE BEEN FOR AS LONG AS YOU HAVE BEEN PART OF LIVEPRAYER, A WITNESS TO A REAL MIRACLE OF GOD AND A TESTIMONY TO HIS BLESSINGS ON A WORK DEDICATED TO BRINGING THE TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD AND THE GOSPEL TO THE LOST AND HURTING OUTSIDE OF THE FOUR WALLS OF THE CHURCH!!!
***AUGUST FINANCIAL UPDATE: Thank you for those who have stepped up to help me during this difficult as we press ahead by sheer faith in His strength and grace!!!! As you know, due to needing the entire month of July to clear up our June shortfall, we went into August needing to cover our entire July TV and internet budget of $65,000, along with our August budget.
Currently $35,000 of our July shortfall has come in, leaving us needing to cover the $30,000 balance plus the $65,000 we require for our August internet and TV operations. That is $95,000 before the end of the month! OUR GOD IS ABLE!!
Please 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 95 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. Some 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 desperately need ONE of our friends God has blessed who prays and seeks the Lord’s guidance and in honor of a spouse, parent, child, or other loved one, who can get $65,000 of the $95,000 we require into our account ASAP!!! That covers the $30,000 balance of July plus $35,000 of our August operations that is past due!
It is CRITICAL that I have $65,000 in our account ASAP in order to take care of critical expenses by the end business today! ONE who God has blessed can step up as many in the past years have done to help me at this time!!! I am literally at the mercy of those who supply the services we require for our daily ministry, begging then daily to hold on, but once they start to cancel those services we are not going to be able operate.
PRAY AND ASK THE LORD IF IT IS YOU HE IS TALKING TO ABOUT THIS!!! I HAVE BEEN IN PRAYER FOR 2 MONTHS FOR ONE PERSON TO HELP ME GET OUR FINANCIAL CHALLENGES CAUGHT UP AND CURRENT SO WE CAN PROCEED WITHOUT THIS BURDEN UPON US EACH DAY!!!
If you are able to the extra mile and wire the funds to our Wells Fargo account or drop by a branch in your area and deposit them into our account TODAY, it would help me a great deal. Of course you can overnight a check today to our office or put the gift on your credit card or Paypal. Feel free to email me for any information you may need to help me at: email@example.com
Over the years, God has raised up many different friends of His work here who at critical times made a special sacrifice of $20,000, $50,000, in one case $80,000, and several times $100,000. I am standing in faith that as everyone prays and those who are able give according to your ability to give, we can bring in the $30,000 balance from July as well as the $65,000 required for our operations in August.
OBVIOUSLY WHATEVER YOU CAN GIVE AT THIS TIME IS GREATLY APPRECIATED AND DESPITE THE AMOUNT NO GIFT IS GREATER IN THE EYES OF GOD THAN ANOTHER, SINCE IT IS OUR OBEDIENCE GOD SEES, JUST LIKE THE OBEDIENCE OF THE WOMAN AT THE WELL!

As we head into the final 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 8 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.
Most important is the apx 2,000 people we know of each week who come to faith in Jesus through Liveprayer. Through over 17 years of ministry, that takes us over 1 million souls we know of from around the world who have come to faith in Jesus!!! AMEN!!! That is only possible through your love, prayers, and sacrifice to help me!!!
The reality is, we are on the verge of seeing the culmination of 17 years of ministry online and 13 years on TV, and the opportunity to help usher in a real spiritual revival in this nation as God has showed me. The time is very short. We have squandered God's many blessings that He has poured out on this nation the past 200+ years.
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!
are hungry for Truth. At this time, people are desperately looking for 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 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!!!
That is why today I am begging you to help me. Everyone can pray, and I ask you to take a few minutes and ask the Lord to move on the hearts of those who are able to make a financial sacrifice to help me in this effort with the most generous year-end gift you can. As those who have followed Liveprayer over the years, you know that my heart beats to bring God's Truth to the marketplace, to reach the lost masses, to pray for people in their hour of need, and to see souls won to faith in Jesus Christ.
Will you pray about what God is calling YOU to do to help me in this effort to lead our nation back to God and His Truth? I need your support now more than ever. For every minute I have to spend asking people to help insure these basic needs are met, is one less minute I can spend with in the critical work the Lord has called me to as we work on different outreaches through the Internet and TV to usher in a real national revival.
I love you and care about you so much. Thank you for praying and thank you for making the sacrifice to help me. May history look back on our efforts for Christ and show our faithfulness as Heaven is packed full of souls who came to know Jesus through the work of Liveprayer!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,
