Daily Devotional for Monday August 29, 2016
Blessings My Friend!
(1 Corinthians 15:57)
Blessings my friend!
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, give me your strength to stand for your Truth no matter what the cost. It is easy to call myself a follower of Jesus, but when confronted, when challenged, when faced with persecution, will I still say I am a follower of Jesus? I love you Lord and ask for your strength so no matter what I have to endure for my faith, I will stand firm. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
As we approach the 17 yr anniversary of Liveprayer, sadly we are at a place we have never been before. That is not being able to cover whatever amount we carried over into the current month, meaning that balance...PLUS...the full operational budget for the current month are required.
I have walked this walk of faith, and so many of you have walked it with me these many years. In the end it is HIS work. While what we have accomplished over these 17 yrs is incredible, tens of millions of lives worldwide impacted, God’s Truth boldly taken into the marketplace, over 100 million emails for prayer prayed over and responded to, an archive of over 10 million praise reports, and most important...over 1 million souls we know of around this world who have come to faith in Jesus!!!
The reality is, because the Lord has had me operate HIS work here frugally and prudently from day one, we have no buildings to pay for and maintain, no huge staff that has to be paid weekly, no private jets, mansions, Bentley’s to buy and maintain, simply the work of a modern day prophet using the technology of the day to share HIS Truth, hope, and Gospel.
Subsequently, while to some I know it is a huge amount, in reality, we are simply requiring less than $100,000 to get back on track financially as we head into the last 4 months of this critical year in regard to the soul of this nation. I am only asking that you pray, you ask the Lord what He may be asking YOU to do at this time, and like so many over these past 17 years, be obedient if HE is speaking to YOU about being used at this critical time!!!
***AUGUST FINANCIAL UPDATE: Thank you for those who have stepped up to help me during this difficult time 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 $38,000 of our July shortfall has come in, leaving us needing to cover the $27,000 balance plus the $65,000 we require for our August internet and TV operations. That is $92,000 required by the end of the month! OUR GOD IS ABLE!!
My friend, I am doing all I can to keep Liveprayer alive, but we are hanging on by sheer faith. I desperately need several of our friends to help me today. We are at a very critical place today and after 17 yrs and all of the ministry we have provided to 10s of millions worldwide faithfully 24/7, I refuse to accept that God is done with His work here over just $92,000!!!
*******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 $62,000 of the $92,000 we require into our account Monday!!!
It is CRITICAL that I have $62,000 in our account Monday 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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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 $27,000 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!

I love and care about you so much! Thank you for taking the time to pray and feel my words today. As I do daily, I never hold back as I share with you God's Truth on the issues of the day as well as my personal thoughts and feelings. Even though I speak daily to a mass worldwide audience online and over a hundred thousand people 5 nights a week on the TV program, I try to speak to the heart of each person I am able to reach.
Please know that you and your family are in my prayers. I pray daily for God's protection, for His provision, and for His blessings to be upon you as together we press forward towards the prize, bringing hope to the hurting, salvation through faith in Christ to the lost, and use this platform the Lord has built to lead our nation back to the Almighty and His Truth!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
