Daily Devotional for Friday September 2, 2016
The Same God Who Led Us to Victory Before, is The Same God Who will Lead Us to Victory Today
(1 Corinthians 15:57)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, I pray, today, for each person who is reading these words. You know exactly where they are at today financially. I pray that whatever they have today is multiplied many times over in the coming weeks and months. Bless them in the area of their finances, Father, so that they may not only care for their day-to-day needs of those they are responsible for, but so that they may feed the poor around the world, those who are materially poor as well as those who are spiritually poor. I pray, today, a prayer of BLESSING on the finances of the person reading these words. Whatever we have in this life comes from you and is yours Father. May we be faithful in managing what you have given to us. Multiply many times over what you have currently given to the person reading this word today and allow them to be a great blessing to the work of God throughout the world. I pray BLESSINGS over the finances of the person reading these words today for the glory of Almighty God. In the name of Jesus. Amen!
Blessings my friend!!!
In reflecting back on the past 17 years of Liveprayer, God has been so faithful! I’ve done my best. There have been 3-4 times over these many years when we were literally one special gift from having to close down. Each time, the Lord sent a special friend and it put the ministry back on firm financial footing for another 3, 4, 5 years until we were faced with a similar challenge.
AS DAVID WENT TO FIGHT GOLIATH AND HAD THE FAITH IN GOD DUE TO HIS EXPERIENCES WITH GOD, I TESTIFY TODAY THAT THE SAME GOD WHO HAS RAISED UP THAT SPECIAL FRIEND IN PAST YEARS, IS THE SAME GOD WHO WILL RAISE UP THAT SPECIAL FRIEND TODAY!!!
As we enter our 18th year online, we find ourselves in a place we have never been before! We have NEVER had to start a new month carrying over a balance from two months ago...PLUS..the entire budget from the previous month. I am doing all I can to keep Liveprayer alive, but we are hanging on by sheer faith!
I have been walking in faith daily for the last 17 yrs, trusting God for our daily sustenance. I have done my best to be faithful each day, and have witnessed HIS faithfulness day after day. As we have been challenged these past 7 yrs with the financial crisis that hit the nation, dear friends going home to be with the Lord, many who were able to help not able to do so due to business and family issues, it has been a miracle we not only are still here...but still being effective in lives worldwide daily while seeing lost souls come to faith in Jesus.
I purposely have run this ministry from day one with little overhead. No buildings, no big staff, primarily myself doing what God has called me to do using the Internet and secular TV to share His hope and Truth with the lost masses outside the four walls of the church! Otherwise, we would have been gone a LONG time ago.
As we fight to keep moving forward, we need a real financial miracle quickly. The $20,000 still left over from July, our entire August budget, I desperately need one of our friends God has positioned who is able to step up at this critical moment and make a one-time special gift of $20,000, or hopefully, the $85,000 that allows us to get into the month of September current!!!
PLEASE BE PRAYING ABOUT ALLOWING THE LORD TO USE YOU, AS HE HAS MANY OTHERS OVER THE YEARS, 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.
Sadly, we ended August still requiring $20,000 to clear up our July shortfall in addition to the $65,000 we require for our August internet and TV operations. Obviously with today being September 1st, we are also facing the $65,000 we require for our September internet and TV operations. That means by the end of September, we need to bring in $150,000 to be current, certainly nothing too great for God!!!
I desperately need one or several of our friends to help me today!!! I have lingered in the “desert” now with this need hanging over the ministry for the past 2 months, asking the Lord to bring forth the one who can help me as HE has over and over through these many years of faithful ministry!!!
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 $85,000 we need to go into September current!
*******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 $85,000 we require into our account today!!!
It is CRITICAL that I have $85,000 in our account TODAY 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 $20,000 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. Please stand in agreement with me for my prayer at the beginning. It is exciting being in the Lord's service, though, it is not for the faint of heart. It is the love, prayers, and kindness of friends like you who make it all possible. Know that I pray for you and your family daily, since it is no accident or coincidence God has brought us together for this season. We will keep pressing on towards the prize, letting nothing deter us since we know satan is a liar and a loser, knowing that in the end...JESUS HAS ALREADY WON!!!! AMEN!!! AMEN!!! AMEN!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,
