Daily Devotional for Wednesday October 17, 2018
My dear friend, God is GREAT and worthy to be praised!!!
(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!
My dear friend, God is GREAT and worthy to be praised!!! Dozens of times over the 19+ years of Liveprayer we have faced difficult financial challenges. Each time, God raised up one of our friend HE had enabled to help us. Every minute Liveprayer is in operation, satan shivers as lives somewhere in the world are being impacted, God’s unadulterated Truth is being heard, and souls are being saved.
At those moments when even my faith waivers a bit, God sends someone to encourage me, a special gift to help me at a critical time, and I am rejuvenated and supernaturally charged with Holy Ghost power to stay on the front lines and battle satan for the souls of men. It is on the front lines you will find my empty body when either the trump sounds and Christ returns, or the Lord says my work is complete and HE calls me home to my eternal rest!
2018, our 19th year online has been a POWERFUL year of ministry for Liveprayer. Being able to focus most of my time on ministering to the needs of the people we reach worldwide each day, we have received, prayed for, and sent a personal response to just under 11 million emails for prayer so far during 2018. We have apx. 1 million praise reports archved from the first 9 months of 2018.
MOST IMPORTANT, WE HAVE SEEN RIGHT AT 40,000 SOULS WE KNOW OF COME TO FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST SO FAR THIS YEAR!!! AMEN!!! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!
This has all be possible because friends like you have sacrificed your prayers and many, some of your treasure!!!
Due to getting the ministry on stable financial footing the past 5 yrs after several of our friends we could always count on during a slow period went home to be with the Lord, I have neglected my personal finances to keep our ministry operations at Liveprayer current. God has been faithful and as HE promised, supplies daily food, clothing, and shelter.
However, I have right at $15,000 I need to get to the IRS immediately. I have not wanted to share this personal need publicly, praying we would get enough ahead so I could take a bonus from the ministry to cover the IRS, but that has not happened. I am praying one of our friends went fishing today and caught a fish with a gold coin as in Matthew 17:27. “But we don’t want to cause trouble. So go cast a line into the lake and pull out the first fish you hook. Open its mouth, and you will find a coin. Use it to pay your taxes and mine.”
By God’s grace, yesterday we finally covered all of our ministry operations through September. As we head into the final 77 days of the year, we require $150,000 for our October, November, and December ministry operations in order to close out 2018 with all of our ministry operations current. With just 2 weeks until the end of October we need to cover $42,000 of our $50,000 October ministry operations budget over the next few days.
I am in prayer today, seeking several of our friends who the Lord has blessed and enabled to help me with a special year-end gift to Liveprayer. It is critical for me to be able to take care of my IRS payment of $15,000 Wednesday, and cover $42,000 of our October operational costs in the next few days.
That is a total of $57,000. $3,000 of that $42,000 in operational costs is needed for the final technical work necessary to re-launch the Liveprayer TV program on Monday November 5th, LIVE Mon-Fri from 11pm-Midnight ET, on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick, and about 30 other streaming services!!!
I am including our wire information, since that would be the quickest and most efficient way to get funds into our account ASAP with the least hassle:
Wire routing 121000248

If God has blessed and enabled you to be able to help me with the full $57,000 I am in need of, or just the $15,000 to clear up the IRS, or the $42,000 we need for our October ministry operations, please try to wire those funds as early as possible Wednesday. If you have any problems, just email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If it is more convenient to overnight a check, just send it to our office in St. Petersburg. Of course you can mail your gift or put it on your credit card, that information is at: http://www.liveprayer.com/donate.cfm
Obviously, whatever you can sacrifice is special to God. No gift regardless the amount is less than or greater than another. Many people give a special year-end gift that also helps them with their taxes. If it is possible to send that year-end gift now it would help me a great deal. All I askis that you take a moment and pray, seek the Lord, and give the most generous gift you possibly can at this time.

I love you and care about you so much! I want you to commit to memory today my life verse from 1 Corinthians 15:57, "But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!" For over 19 years since starting Liveprayer.com I have walked by faith, not trusting in the devices of man, but only on God to bless and sustain His work.
Thank you for your love, prayers, and sacrifice as we take our bold and visible stand for Christ in these last days. AMEN!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in Christ,
