Daily Devotional for Monday May 18, 2020
“The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor...” Proverbs 22:9
***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!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Do you need convincing the world does not respect us? Last week, the TV program The Price if Right had a celebrity program for charity. The winner was the “drag queen” and sexual deviant RuPaul. His total was right at $100,000 and the charity he donated the money to was...wait for it...PLANNED “HOW TO KILL YOUR BABY” PARENTHOOD!!! Now, some may say, well, this was just a TV program, and what do you expect from a sexual reprobate like RuPaul. Let me push back on that. Yes, RuPaul is a sexual reprobate and I would expect nothing less. However, this is not just a TV program. Whether you like the program or not, the Price is Rich is an iconic program that began in 1956! It was hosted for decades by the legendary Bob Barker, than in 2007 after Barker’s retirement by the current host and comedian Drew Carey. It has been one of the few “live” programs in production during the Chines Flu outbreak with so many people at home. MY FRIEND, THIS IS A MAJOR NATIONALLY SYNDICATED ICONIC PROGRAM AND THE PRODUCERS ARE FULLY AWARE OF WHO PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS AND WHAT THEY REPRESENT IN OUR CULTURE!!! THAT IS MY POINT! THEY DON’T CARE WHAT CHRISTIANS THINK! THEY ARE NOT AFRAID OF WHAT WE THINK, SAY, OR DO! THEY ARE FINE PROMOTING THE SLAUGHTER OF INNOCENT BABIES IN A POPULAR FAMILY- TARGETED TELEVISION VEHICLE! WHAT CHRISTIANS THINK OR CARE ABOUT THIS ISSUE IS ABSOLUTELY MEANINGLESS TO THEM! This is in large part due to the ever growing “fake church” I have been exposing and educating you about for some time now. The “fake church” claims to be Christians, yet are fine with the killing of innocent babies. So for the non-Christian public that is in lock step supporting Planned Parenthood’s baby-killing business, Christians are seen as split on the issue. That of course is a lie from the pits of hell, since you CAN NOT be a Biblical Christians and support in any way the killing of an innocent human being!!!

“The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor...” Proverbs 22:9
Will you help me today?
Who could know as 2019 faded into 2020, that only months into the new year we would be facing a generational crisis in the form of a worldwide pandemic. NEVER before in history had our nation literally “shut down” , meaning schools and universities closed, they stopped playing all sporting events, all but essential businesses were forced to close, CHURCHES WERE ORDERED TO STOP HOLDING SUNDAY SERVICES, and people were literally ordered to stay in their homes!!!
I was born in 1958. I had no idea that one year earlier in 1957, an Asian Flu (H2N2) went worldwide killing 1.1 million people, 116,000 in the US. I also had forgotten that in late 1968 and into 1969 a Hong Kong Fly (H3N2) broke out around the globe killing 1 million people, with 100,000 dead in the US. Despite legitimate questions being asked about the truth of the death numbers being reported during this current worldwide outbreak of the Chinese Flu, so far apx. 800,000 have died around the world with apx. 80,000 dead in the US.
In both of these outbreaks it was the elderly and those with pre-existing medical issues who were affected. Does that sound familiar? IN NEITHER THE 1957 OR 1968/1969 ASIAN FLU OUTBREAKS DID THE US ECONOMY OR THE ECONOMIES OF OTHER NATIONS SHUT DOWN!!! By the way, in 1969 the US hosted the famous Woodstock Musical Festival, hardly a paragon of social distancing!
DURING BOTH OF THESE WORLDWIDE OUTBREAKS, LIFE WENT ON AS USUAL HERE IN THE UNITED STATES AND AROUND THE WORLD!!!
I come today, needing you to help me. Over nearly 21 years now, tens of millions of live worldwide have been impacted. Liveprayer has sent personal responses to over 170 MILLION emails with apx. 17 million archived praise reports. In the past few months our daily average of 40,000 emails for prayer a day has jumped up near 50,000. Most critical, over 1.7 million souls we know of have come to faith in Jesus.
THIS IS MY ETERNAL LEGACY AND MY TRACK RECORD OF SERVICE THESE PAST 20+ YEARS!!! HOWEVER, IT IS CLEAR THAT MY JOB IS NOT FINISHED AS GOD IS USING LIVEPRAYER TO SHEPHERD THE PEOPLE THROUGH THIS WORLDWIDE CRISIS, BUT MORE IMPORTANT, BE HIS VOICE TO CALL THIS NATION AND THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD TO REPENTANCE AND TO TURN BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH!!!
Never forget, whatever has been accomplished here at Liveprayer has been because of YOU! YOUR love, YOUR prayers, and YOUR sacrifice, have made all of this possible for tens of millions around the world the 2+ decades now!!! For those who have been part of the Liveprayer family for these many years, you know that I never send a Devotional like this unless it was an emergency. I don't play games when it comes to the finances. I simply share our needs, get on my knees, and trust God to move on the hearts of people to provide for our needs.
My friend, I am counting on you today. I need to hear from you today. This is critical, and I desperately need your help. Churches nationwide are down in their finances anywhere from an average of 66% to 90%. Non-profits and charities around the nation are currently struggling which is understandable. Liveprayer was less than a year old when the internet bubble crashed in early 2000 causing a huge financial downturn. In 2008 it was the housing crisis that set off a major economic disaster for tens of millions.
THROUGH IT ALL, GOD HAS SUSTAINED LIVEPRAYER, USING HIS PEOPLE HE HAD BLESSED AND PROTECTED TO STEP UP AT A CRITICAL MOMENT WITH SPECIAL GIFTS TO SUPPORT HIS WORK HERE AT LIVEPRAYER!!!
We are still chasing the final $15,000 from our April shortfall of $38,000. Now 17 days into May, we are obviously behind on the $55,000 we will require for our basic May ministry operations. That is $70,000 we require over the last 2 weeks of May to end the months current.
This is so critical, since EVERY YEAR we struggle financially during June, July, and August. That is just simply a fact of life virtually every summer. No doubt these summer months will be even more of a challenge this year due to the economic hardships so many are facing because of the economic hardships due to the Chinese Flu. So between the $70,000 we require to end May current, add $165,000 ($55,000 per month) for the 3 summer months, and that is $235,000 to go into the final 4 months of the year current. MY FRIEND, OUR GOD IS ABLE!!!
Now more than ever, the voice and presence of Liveprayer is critical to the nation and its’ people. While $235,000 is a lot of money, in the scheme of the world it is very insignificant. Yet with those dollars, millions are spiritually fed and ministered to each day. God’s Word is boldly declared in the marketplace of our day. Lives are being impacted, needs are being met, and SOULS ARE BEING SAVED!!!
I desperately need your prayers and for each one in the Liveprayer family to pray about what you can sacrifice to help me, giving according to your ability to give as the Bible teaches!!!
WE HAVE THE ABILITY BASED ON 20+ YEARS OF PIONEERING THE INTERNET AND BRINGING CHRIST TO THE MASSES ON TV, OF BEING GOD'S AGENT TO TURN THIS NATION BACK TO OUR CREATOR AND HIS TRUTH. THIS GENERATIONAL CRISIS HAS VISITED US CREATING A CLEAR OPPORTUNITY TO TURN OUR NATION BACK TO GOD AND HIS TRUTH. NOW MORE THAN EVER I NEED YOU TO STAND WITH ME IN PRAYER AND HELP ME WITH THE MOST GENEROUS SACRIFICE YOU CAN MAKE!!!
Please don't think that just because there are 2.5 million subscribers, someone else will take care of this. It has been friends like YOU over the years who God has spoken to, who have responded, who has made Liveprayer available to bring hope and salvation to so many. It will be someone like YOU today.
Also, I know there is someone reading these words who God has richly blessed. Some have recently inherited money or sold a piece of property, or received a windfall from your job. You have been praying about a place to use your resources where God can multiply them exponentially in the lives and eternal souls of men. LIVEPRAYER HAS A NEARLY 21 YEAR TRACK RECORD OF BEING FERTILE SOIL, GOOD GROUND TO SOW YOU SEED THAT IS GUARANTEED TO IMPACT LIVES WORLDWIDE EACH DAY AND SAVE SOULS!!!

I love you and care about you so much. Do you want to do something great for God with your life??? STAND WITH ME!!! I CAN'T DO THIS ALONE!!! I am asking you today to simply pray about what God may be calling you to do to help me with this effort. When this brief journey through life is over, what do we have to show for it? The only lasting legacy we have are those things we did for the Lord. I have taken my stand and will proclaim His truth with my dying breath.
Today, I am asking you to pray about joining me and use this crisis from satan to finally turn our nation back to God and His Truth!!! What satan meant for evil, God meant for good!!! Will you stand and fight with me to help lead this nation back to God and His Truth????????
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
