Daily Devotional for Friday December 20, 2019
May these praise reports encourage you today!!!
(1 Chronicles 9:1, 5:25)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I pray today that you guide my steps. Let me live this day in a way pleasing and acceptable to You! Let my voice not be silenced when I have an opportunity to take a stand for You and Your Truth. Let my love for You today be shown in my life, for Your glory! In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
***A MOST BLESSED CHRISTMAS FROM MYSELF AND THOSE WHO LABOR AT LIVEPRAYER FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TO HAVE A MOST BLESSED CHRISTMAS!!! A Christmas blessing: https://liveprayer.com/mc19/
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Sadly, this is the time of year when the God-haters are on the hunt to try and spoil Christmas for those who cherish what this time of year is all about. Ron Reagan, the son of former President Ronald Reagan and his second wife Nancy, is a very public atheist and on the Board of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. FFRF is an organization that promotes the separation of church and state and educates the public on matters relating to atheism, agnosticism, and non-theism. Regan stars in TV commercials for the group and ends his message stating, “I'm a lifelong atheist and I'm not afraid of burning in hell.” After 27 years of evangelistic ministry, I can honestly tell you that I have only met a handful of people who literally wanted to go to hell. If you notice, Reagan didn’t state he WANTED to burn in hell, but that he wasn’t afraid of burning in hell. Sadly, these are the words of a fool who obviously has made the freewill choice to reject that there is such a place as hell. I can assure you, even the smug and arrogant Ron Reagan would reconsider if he was ever to consider hell really does exist!

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!
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!
"I asked Brother Bill to please pray for my business. I had a lot of excellent blessings happen since then. The power of prayer is so amazing. I encourage all to pray. As it says in James, the effective fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much."
"Brother Bill, Thanks for all your prayers. Things are looking up for me with my business. I found a new location with more foot traffic, and seems like a better place for me. I was struggling with not giving into worldly things, but I noticed since I've been taking heed to your devotionals and I've been aware of trying to be a better Christian, and spending more time in Prayer, my life has been more blessed and I've even been happier. Thank you for all you do, I don't know if you hear that enough, but your ministry has changed my life as I'm sure it has for countless others."
"CAMRYN IS DOING GREAT, BILL HAS PRAYED FOR HER TWICE SINCE SHE WAS BORN,SHE WAS IN HOSPITAL TWICE A WEEK BOTH TIMES. SHE GOT BACK A GOOD REPORT. SHE IS GOING TO BE FINE. PRAISE MY LORD..HE ALWAYS HEARS WHEN BILL PRAYS..THANK YOU BILL FOR PRAYING!"
"I just wanted to let everyone know that giving to the lords work really pays off. I have been giving to this ministry what little I can and every time I give the lord blesses me back ten-fold."
"I just said the sinners prayer and would like the info you talked about."
"Brother Keller, Recently I asked you to pray for Dillan who was abducted by his dad. His grandfather let me know that he drove to Ohio to pick Dillan up. Praise God. and Jesus. His grandfather extends his thanks to you."
"The things you have written re: the "Christian trough" have really spurred me on to more of a reaching out to the lost mindset. Praise God! Last night my husband and I attended a Christian concert held at a local church. We paid $12 to get in. The musician was well known. But when they gave an invitation to receive Christ, not one accepted. It was nearly an all Christian crowd by the looks of things. I felt this grieving in my heart. I know the musicians have to make a living, and that it is fine for Christians to gather and have a time of praise and just enjoy a night out, but I couldn't help thinking this guy could use his talent out on the streets too."
"That show you did on strip clubs made it easy for me to resist temptation for me to go to them."
"I sent an email to LivePrayer.com for healing. I was so very sick with fever and chills. My body was so weak that I could hardly walk. I was healed and I am so very grateful for Gods mercy and love for doing this for me. I want to express more praise because I am so thankful but do not know what to say other than thank you and Praise God."
"About a year ago, I contacted LivePrayer to request prayer for transportation, as I had no way of getting anywhere, depending solely on others. Just recently, I was gifted with a next to new SUV truck, that more than meets my needs and is above and beyond anything I could ask or think! I cannot thank you enough for holding me up in prayer on this. This vehicle has been dedicated to our God to be used for His glory! God Bless my LivePrayer family!"
"Praise the Lord! I had asked for prayer that my mother's house would be sold and it is. Praise the Lord and thank you for praying."
"I got my miracle. Kodi's brain tumour has completely gone as per a scan this afternoon. I cannot thank you enough for your prayers and healing. God bless you. One happy grandma."
"A few weeks ago I asked for your help in prayer concerning a pension plan that I administer that was being audited by the IRS. On Friday, I spoke with the agent who told me that he had found no fault with what we had done, even though we had made some errors, and that I should expect to receive a letter saying that in a month or so. Praise God, in the name of Jesus, for protecting me and this pension plan!"
"Just wanted to let you know that God has ANSWERED our prayers and sent my husband back to me yesterday. I rejoice in this decision and praise God!! Thank You God, our most AWESOME, Heavenly Father for taking the devil's hold off our marriage and my husband!!"
"Thank you Bill, Your mails really lifted me up when I was at a very dark place in my life some time ago!"
"Thanks again for your prayers. I got the results from my surgery and they said the polyps were benign and my kidney's looked fine. Praise God!"
"Hello my name is Justin, and I just prayed that prayer. Your video asked me to send you an e-mail telling you so, and now I have. Thank you!"
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,
