Daily Devotional for Thursday November 19, 2020
Thanksgiving and the final 43 days of 2020!
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: 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!
My Friend, I pray that you and your family are well, and that you will have a most blessed Thanksgiving in the coming days. We have so much to be thankful for!!!
As we head into the final 12 days of November, and with only 43 days left in the year, I am in awe of God and how He has moved through Liveprayer during this year. Due to the pandemic and social unrest, we saw an incredible increase in emails for prayer and people making a decision to give their heart and life to Christ by faith.
2020 HAS BEEN A BUSY, BUT GREAT YEAR OF MINISTRY LIKE NONE OTHER!!! IMPACTED LIVES, CHANGED HEARTS, AND SOULS WON TO FAITH IN OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!!!
The better percentage of the past 2 generations have never been to church, yet they still have the same problems of life everyone does. The problem is they don’t know where to turn!!!
Despite the financial challenges we face each month, God has honored our commitment to ministry over money. This past August we celebrated 21 years online. Over that time, He has continued to move on the hearts of friends like you to provide the resources we need to respond to the apx. 40,000+ emails for prayer daily, get His Truth into the marketplace, and lead lost souls to faith in Jesus!!!
Tens of millions of lives worldwide impacted for the Lord, over 180 million emails for prayer we have responded to since we began in August of 1999, and apx. 1.8 million souls we know of who will be in Heaven for all eternity. This is only possible through your love, prayers, and generous sacrifices to help me!!!
The coming year is going to be challenging and a time when our voice is needed in the marketplace and to God’s people more than ever. With the Chinese Flu outbreak still being a scourge on our nation and the world, the political uncertainty, I believe it will be a time ripe for revival and God will use Liveprayer to help usher in a real move of His Spirit in this nation.
The time is very short. We have squandered God's many blessings that He has poured out on this nation the past 200 years. WE ARE UNDER HIS JUDGMENT, BUT HIS PEOPLE CAN LEAD OUR LAND IN A NATIONAL REVIVAL AND EXCHANGE JUDGMENT FOR BLESSINGS!!!
Deuteronomy 8:19 says, "If you ever forget the LORD your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed." We have not only worshipped and bowed down to every false god and idol there is, but have unleashed sin of every kind in our land. God will not be mocked!!!
Turning back to God and His Truth is our ONLY hope, and time is running out for us to do that!!!
That is why today I am asking you to pray about what God is calling you to do to help me end this year with all of our financial obligations current, and your commitment to help me to insure our monthly ministry budget of $55,000 is covered each month in 2021! DON’T FORGET A GIFT OF $1,830 COVERS ONE DAY OF MINISTRY AT LIVEPRAYER!!!
*We ended October with a shortfall of $55,000. So far we have covered $15,000 leaving the final $40,000. I am praying that we can cover the final $40,000 over the next few days leaving us the final days of the month to take care of the $55,000 we require for our November ministry operations. That is $95,000 by the end of November to go into December with all of our operations current!!!
*When we add the $55,000 we will require for our December ministry operations, that is $150,000 over the final 43 days of the year!!! As we near the end of the year, please be praying about a special one-time year-end gift to Liveprayer of $1,000, $2,000, $5,000, $10,000 or more since it may help you with your taxes for the current year. ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD!!!
God’s Word teaches us to “give according to our ability to give.” For some, that may be $10, others $20, $50, or $100, and still others it may be $1,000 or more. It is not the amount that God sees, but your obedience and heart!!!
TO GIVE A GIFT TO LIVEPRAYER, you can use your major credit card at: http://www.liveprayer.com/donate.cfm or you can mail your gift to: Liveprayer, 6660 46th Ave. North, St. Petersburg, FL 33709. All gifts to Liveprayer are 100% tax deductible!!!
*STOCKS! A great way to help Liveprayer is by donating stock. The transfer can be made in a way you get the full credit for your donation without having to pay any of the taxes you normally would on gains your stocks may have enjoyed. Contact me for information about this incredible way to help God's work here at Liveprayer: firstname.lastname@example.org
*LIVE ON AFTER YOU ARE IN HEAVEN!!! By remembering God’s work here at Liveprayer in your will/estate planning, you can still help me share His Truth with the masses, be here for people in their time of greatest need, and help lead the lost to faith in Jesus even after God has called you home!!! In the 20+ yrs of Liveprayer, I have never employed professional development (fundraising) people or those who specialize in planned giving (wills). Even without such people, God has led many of our friends in the Liveprayer family to remember His work here in their will. Most of the time we weren’t even aware of this Legacy Gift until we were contacted by an attorney or executor of their estate. Please pray about this opportunity to continue and partner with me in the Lord’s work at Liveprayer, even after you are enjoying your rewards and the eternal peace of Heaven! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me at: email@example.com
I love you and care about you so much. Thank you for praying and thank you for making the sacrifice to help me. May history look back on our efforts for Christ and show our faithfulness as Heaven is packed full of souls who came to know Jesus through His work at Liveprayer!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
