Daily Devotional for Thursday September 20, 2018
Tremendous encouragement for you today!!!
(Psalms 91:15; Psalms 89:1)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER: Dear Lord, help me to get through this day and the challenges that I will be facing today. Guide me, strengthen me, and give me wisdom as I make choices throughout this day. Please watch over my family and those I love in this world, and keep them safe. I love you Lord, and depend upon you each moment of each day. Bless me as I go through the day, living my life for your glory. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
***JUDGE KAVANAUGH AND SESAME STREET! As I deal in the Daily Devotional today with this insane issue of gender identity regarding children, it was announced that two of Sesame Street’s main characters, Bert and Ernie...are gay! 15 years ago I wrote a Daily Devotional on the “gay lie being told to your children.” It was a warning to parents how the pro-homosexual lobby in this nation was targeting children as young as the first grade, promoting that homosexuality is a perfectly normal choice and the lie from the pits of hell that people are “born gay.” The powers of darkness have won this cultural war and now have no concern at all in using a favorite children’s program that has helped raised several generations of kids to promote that sinful homosexual lifestyle.
Over the past two days I have been inundated with emails about my thoughts on the Judge Kavanaugh nomination hearings. Leaving politics totally out of my answer, let me help you understand what this sad debacle we are witnessing is all about...KILLING BABIES!!! Trust me that the core reason you had various groups as well as Democratic Senators all opposing his nomination from the moment he was named, to of all the antics that were on display during his public confirmation hearings, to this disgusting last moment hail mary to destroy Judge Kavanaugh and force him to withdraw, has been about one issue and only one issue...KILLING BABIES! I have done my best to educate you over these past 19 years about the passion people who support killing babies have regarding this issue. Trust me, it is so abhorrent decent people can’t even fathom how driven people can be to support infanticide. Sadly, I have dealt with this over my 25 years in ministry. If you ever doubt the ends people who support the legalized murder of innocent babies will go to, doubt no longer. They will stop at NOTHING to protect this satanic practice, and what you are witnessing with Judge Kavanaugh is simply proof of that!!!
One of the joys in my life is to look over some of the thousands of incredible praise reports we receive every day here at Liveprayer. Real people that had emailed us to pray about real issues in their life. It is a tremendous honor and privilege to be able to stand in agreement with people for the needs they face during the course of their journey through life. I am always moved to see God's grace and mercy at work in the lives of people as He answers their prayers.
Several times each year, I like to share a sampling of those praise reports with you. I do this because so many of you are facing great obstacles in your life today, and need to know God is there. The Bible proclaims that God is no respecter of persons. That simply means what God has done for someone else, He will do for you. So I want you to know today that no matter what your need is, what your problem is, what the battle you are fighting may be, God not only hears your prayers, BUT HE ANSWERS YOUR PRAYERS!
Every day, Liveprayer receives apx. 40,000 emails for prayer. We have a wonderful team of over 700 retired pastors who work with me to insure every email for prayer is read, prayed over, and responded to. After 19 years, we have responded to over 13 million emails for prayer, and have an archive of apx. 1.3m praise reports!!! AMEN!!!
Also, so many of you pray and sacrificially give to the work God is doing here at Liveprayer. I want to encourage you today as well, that your prayers, and your gifts to this work are not in vain. What we do each and every day for over 2.5 million people all over the world is only possible because you care, you pray, and you give. Let these praise reports be an encouragement to you that God is using you to make a difference in the lives of people. God is using your obedience, your faithfulness to reach those who are lost and hurting with His love and hope. May God use these praise reports today to be a blessing to you!

"Bill, She called today !!! Thank GOD!!!! She's alive, safe, and ok. Thank you SO much my friend for your prayers. "
"The last few days have been some of the darkest days in my marriage. I sat at my computer, cried, and prayed with Bill Keller for the healing and restoration of my marriage. Within hours, healing and restoration began taking place in our marriage. Praise the Lord and thank you for having a place I could go for direction and agreement in prayer!"
"I wrote you for prayer for my father, at 92yrs. of age, God gave him a miracle. He is doing great, he isn't dehydrated, he has gotten his appetite back and eating better than before. He can feed himself now without shaking and is walking by himself. The fluid is gone from his lungs. Thank God and thank you."
"I am glad to receive your Daily Devotion because it has changed and touched my life. I must confess that you are a God send to the world today."
"Several months ago I wrote regarding my drug abusing sisters attempt to destroy my family. The false charges against my husband have been dropped! The true blessing though was the gift of an email from Bill Keller, it gave me hope and courage in my darkest hour. Thank you for your prayers on our behalf."
"For the very first time I spoke from my lips this prayer tonight. I have asked before in my head, talking to God that I would be saved, yet I felt tonight that I needed to actually speak the words out loud in order for them to be heard and received."
"Bill, we saw the doctor on Tuesday at Ohio State. He said the radiation therapy treatments worked. The spinal tumor was 80% smaller. The doctor said it is very unlikely for the cancer to return where she had the radiation in her spine. Praise God! Thank you for your diligence in prayer for my wife."
"Thank you Bill. It was so good to meet you in person although I feel as If I have known you for so long! You helped me through many a long/late night when I lived in St Petersburg and knew no one. The reason I am able to be at this place in time is due to some things you said about relationships and not settling for less. Thank You!"
"Hello again, Bill. I know you get thousands of emails a day and you might not recall my prayer request for my dad. I emailed you that he had a stroke a few days ago and was having trouble writing and speaking. I just wanted you to know that he's doing remarkably better and we also received good news from his neurologist today about his probability of a full recovery. Praise God!!!"
"I want to thank you for what you are doing and may God richly bless you for it. My friend just recently sent me your link and I just finished watching the "Altar Call" video. I did pray w/ you, and started my life over for God."
I love you and care about you so much. May these praise reports encourage you today that no matter what your problem may be, God is there for you. Also, thanks to all of my dear friends that so faithfully pray for this ministry each day and sacrificially give to keep us here. GOD IS GREATLY USING YOUR LIFE TO BRING HIS HOPE AND LOVE TO LOST AND HURTING PEOPLE WORLDWIDE EVERY DAY BECAUSE OF YOUR FAITHFULNESS AND OBEDIENCE!!!
All praise goes to our great God for His unconditional love for us and his endless grace and mercy. He is worthy to be praised!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
