DAILY DEVOTIONAL TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 2, 2014
(John 3:16, John 14:6, 1 Corinthians 15:57)
Blessings my friend! I pray all is well with you and your family. Know
that I pray for you and your family each day and thank God for your love,
prayers, and financial sacrifices over the years. I woke up today on my
knees asking the Lord to help me. After 15 yrs of honoring Him and His work
here by giving everything I have each day, holding nothing back, I can never
lose sight each day that unless I share our requirements and ask those who
can help me to do so, I simply won't have the platform necessary to
accomplish the work God has called me to.
I have to be honest. My flesh, like the flesh of all men is weak. I laid in
bed this morning,one of the few days that I didn't want to get up, asking
the Lord why this burden never goes away. I am tired and after 15 yrs of
faithful service why is this such a constant struggle? Never a day goes by
that simply raising the funds required to operate is something I have to
face and deal with.
I have NOT sold out! I have NOT compromised! I have NOT done the many things
I know I could do to bring in all the money we would ever need virtually
overnight! However, that would compromise God's work that for 15 years now
has been focused on reaching the lost and hurting masses outside the four
walls of the church, the majority who already have a preconceived idea that
ministries are nothing but a "money hustle!"
In the end, I get the same answer from God, "Quit whining, quit crying, and
get up and do what you have to do like it all depends upon you. After you
have done all you can, pray knowing that it really all depends upon ME. Now,
go and minister to the people. Share with the lost the hope of Jesus and be
about My business while I move on the hearts of those who will help you as
they have the past 15 years!"
As we begin our 16th year, we do so with a huge challenge. Never forget,
there is no challenge too big for God! June, July, and August are always
difficult months for a plethora of reasons and have been again this year. We
actually ended August with $33,000 of our $40,000 monthly internet budget
unpaid, the $25,000 we require for the monthly TV budget, and the final
$22,000 required to get the Chicago TV contract current. That leave us
requiring $80,000 to get all of our financial obligations current through
To God be the glory because we DID get the balance of our July shortfall
covered around the 3rd week of August, and we DID get a critical payment of
$22,000 for the Chicago contract covered to keep the program on the air, and
even though it is a holiday weekend and many people are not around I have
been able to reach several of our friends who have committed to get us a
total of $10,000 of our shortfall that we will receive over the next few
That leave $70,000 left to bring us current with all of our required
internet and TV obligations so we can begin working on the $40,000 we
require in September for our internet budget and the $25,000 we require in
September for our TV budget.
$40,000 of the $70,000 left is critical to have in our account Tuesday and
Wednesday. $10,000 on Tuesday and the other $30,000 on Wednesday, with the
$30,000 balance in our account by Friday. So PLEASE take a few moments and
pray about what God is speaking to your heart about doing to help me insure
over these next few days the last $70,000 of the $80,000 we carried over
from August is taken care of.
I am praying for one of our friends who has the ability to get that $10,000
into our bank account by Noon tomorrow, and one or two friends to insure the
$30,000 required by Wednesday is in our account by the end of business
Tuesday or first thing Wednesday morning. That would leave the last $30,000,
and I know there are at least 30 of our friends who God has blessed and have
the ability to help me with a gift of $1,000 or more to insure that final
$30,000 is in our account before the end of the week.
If everyone will pray and everyone will "give as you are able to give,"
making the most generous sacrifce you possibly can, I know this $70,000
shortfall will be wiped out over the next few days to the glory of God!!!!
The $10,000 that is critical to be in our account tomorrow and the $30,000
that is critical to be in our account Tuesday are my biggest focus today. If
you can make the extra effort to direct deposit the funds into our Wells
Fargo account, or wire them to us (contact me and I can get you the
information you will need), that would help me a great deal. You can also

I love and care about you so much. I hate to have to take such precious time
to share our needs in such a desperate way, but I would never do that unless
it was critical to our continued operations. All we have accomplished for
the Lord these past 15 yrs has only been possible because of the love,
prayers, and generous sacrifce of friends like you! Thank You!
Our work is not quite finished, and now more than ever it is critical for
our voice to be in the marketplace where fewer each day dare to go to bring
God's Truth. Untold numbers of souls die and go to hell daily because the
church and major ministries have abandoned them because they aren't likely
to give them money. Our very nation is on the verge of God's ultimate wrath
and judgment unless we turn back to our Creator and Biblical Truth!
Liveprayer has faithfully used what resources we have to take God's Word
into the marketplace challenging the lies of satan. We have purposely
targeted and reached out to the lost and hurting with the Gospel. Liveprayer
has the proven ministry tools in place to lead a true national revival and
help turn this nation back to God and His Truth. However, I can't do it
alone and now more than ever our work here is being threatened by just
WILL YOU PRAY TODAY AND WILL YOU HELP ME TODAY? ALLOW GOD TO USE YOU AND
SOME OF THE RESOURCE HE HAS ENTRUSTED INTO YOUR CARE TO ENABLE ME TO DECLARE
HIS TRUTH IN THE PUBLIC SQUARE WHERE IT IS VIRTUALLY VOID, TO TELL THE LOST
THEIR IS TRUE HOPE AND SALVATION IN A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS
CHRIST, AND HELP SPARK A REVIVAL IN THIS NATION TO LEAD OUR LAND BACK TO GOD
AND HIS TRUTH!!!
GOD CAN USE YOUR FAITHFULNESS AND OBEDIENCE IN WAYS YOU CAN NOT EVEN IMAGINE
NOR FULLY COMPREHEND UNTIL YOU REACH GLORY. YOUR PRAYERS AND GENEROUS
SACRIFICIAL GIFT AT THIS CRITICAL TIME WILL NOT ONLY INSURE LIVES ARE
IMPACTED, SOULS ARE SAVED, BUT HELP ME CHANGE THE SPIRITUAL COURSE OF OUR
NATION BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,'
