The People in the World are Looking for Hope

Leave a comment

(Matthew 9:37-38)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, please help me to live this day honoring you in my thoughts, words, and deeds. Help me this day to live my life pleasing and acceptable to Jesus. Allow me to use my life to help someone else during this day, and be kind to everyone I come across no matter how they may treat me. Let Christ shine through me throughout this day oh Lord, be glorified through my life! In Jesus name I pray…AMEN!

I have a secret to share with you today. The people in this world are looking for hope. The people in this world are searching for answers. The people in this world as just waiting for someone to show them the way. THE PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD ARE HUNGRY FOR JESUS!!!

I can honestly say that never before in over 23 years of ministry, have I been as excited and encouraged as I am today. Each day, approximately 40% of the 2.5 million people worldwide that we reach through Liveprayer.com are not Christians nor going to church. They are just normal people trying to get through the day-to-day trials of life and realize that there MUST be more to life, and that something is missing.

They have come to Liveprayer through family members, friends, co-workers, or schoolmates. That is why in nearly 16 years of being online, over 900,000 people (we will pass 1 million this month!) that we know of have accepted Christ as their personal Savior. Keep doing your part and sending people the Devotional and telling them about Liveprayer. GOD IS USING YOU TO IMPACT THEIR LIVES FOR ETERNITY!

Most nights on the Liveprayer television program, we have people accepting Jesus Christ into their hearts by faith, many on the air LIVE!!!. You want to talk about reality television!!! Many more have called, and sent in emails that are lost, hurting, broken, and simply looking for the hope to get through the many problems that they are facing in their life.

I have told my staff that that this is like walking along side of a cornfield and the ears of corn are literally jumping off of their stalks and into our baskets!!! What we have done online since we began is to ministry to Believers, but also reach out to the lost and hurting in the marketplace. For 12 years, I have purposely done the program on secular TV stations and networks because THIS IS WHERE TO REACH THE LOST AND THE HURTING!!!

Here is my word for you today. THE HARVEST IS PLENTIFUL! There are two keys that I want to share with you. Key number one is that you have to go to the people. We have two full generations now that for the most part do not have any church in their life experience. They will not come to church, they will not turn on Christian TV or radio, they will not buy Christian music or books. The church needs to take the message to them instead of hoping they come to the message. Key number two is how you approach them. If you approach them with open arms, wanting NOTHING from them, only to minister to their needs, they are open to that.

I love you and care about you so much. Jesus not only cried out that the harvest was plentiful, but He added, “The workers are few.” I will be praying for you to meditate on these words today. There are many things that we can do with our life that would be considered “great,” but there is NO GREATER thing we can do then let God use us to help lead a lost soul into an everlasting relationship with HIM! With all of the turmoil in our world today, with the personal hardships many are facing due to the downturn in our economy, with just the normal trials of day-to-day life, never before in human history has there been such opportunities to see the lost won for Christ.

Jesus stated the problem in His day that still exists today. Even with such a great harvest just waiting to be brought in, there is a lack of workers to get the job done. I am praying for you today that YOU will answer this call that God has on your life to be a worker to help bring in this mighty harvest. As our Lord told us, we must work while it is yet light, since the darkness is approaching. Jesus spoke in Matthew 24, Paul in 2 Timothy Chapter 3 about the signs of the last days. Only God knows the exact time and moment, but the signs clearly point to the fact that the hour is near.

I want to encourage you today. We have a nation that is ripe to turn back to God and His Truth! THE TIME IS NOW, THE HARVEST IS READY, AND GOD IS CALLING YOU TO HELP BRING IN THE HARVEST!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Robbing God and No This has Nothing to Do with Money

Leave a comment

(Malachi 1:1-9)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Please Lord, give me the strength that when tested, I will not be silent nor will I be afraid to tell YOUR TRUTH! Give me courage, give me strength, and let me stand strong for you no matter what the personal consequences! In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

Robbing God, and no, this has NOTHING to do with money!!! Those who have put their faith in Christ and accepted God’s free gift of everlasting life, understand that God has given His very best in offering Jesus as a sacrifice for our sins. He gave it all in order that we would have a way to be reconciled back to our creator and live for eternity with Him. God gave His very best, but each day do we give our very best to Him?

The priests in the Old Testament were often guilty of offering up to God during their sacrifices, the worst crops, the worst animals, the bare minimum they could. How often are we guilty of the same behavior? Today we don’t follow the Old Testament laws, but our daily sacrifice is our lives.. our time…our talents. How many days do we do the minimal amount for God, giving Him less than our best???

All I am trying to do is to get you to realize that God has done so much for us, and we get comfortable doing the least amount for Him in return. We grudgingly go to church to be fed spiritually, we complain about giving to those causes which God is using to bless people, and we hesitate to volunteer our precious time to help others. We live our lives in a way to give God as little as possible.

Pray today that you might begin to give God your very best. He has blessed many of you with incredible talents to do many things. Don’t hoard those talents for your own benefit, but use those talents for the benefit of the Kingdom. He hasn’t blessed you so you can hold onto those blessings, but that you might in return bless others. Give God your very best today.

I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying for you, praying that you will spend a few minutes giving thought to how much more you could and should be giving God. He gave His very best for you, is it to much to ask for you to give your very best to Him? Trust me, you can’t outgive God. The more you give, the more you receive. Don’t hold back and don’t hang on. God gave it to you so that you could use it to give to others. After all, when this life is over, the only thing any believer should want to hear is, “well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

May His richest blessings be with you today. I will be praying for you to open up and give your best to God!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

Be A Stepping Stone Not A Stumbling Block

Leave a comment

(Romans 14:13)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I come to you asking for your blessings today, and that you make me a blessing today. Thank you for your love, grace, provision, and blessings. May I never take your goodness for granted. Let me share that love and grace with all who I am with today and be a light for you. In the name of Jesus I pray…AMEN!

One of the ways of gauging your spiritual maturity is when you start analyzing your actions in relation to how others view what you do and say. There are many ways to accomplish the same thing, and it becomes very important for us to recognize that others are watching what we do and listening to what we say. There is no greater testimony, no greater way to witness, than the way you live your life before others. It is your most powerful way of expressing the Christ that lives in you.

Becoming a Christian entitles us to many great and wonderful benefits. It also comes with responsibility. As a Christian, you are now responsible to live a life before others that is an example of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. What you say, how you live before others can either be a stepping stone in your relationship with Christ, or a stumbling block.

A few weeks ago I spoke about drinking. In the Bible, there is no verse or passage that says drinking is a sin. There are many scriptures that tell us drinking in excess is a sin. Anything in excess, no matter how good, can become sin. Using drinking as an example, one reason I advocate abstinence is that drinking may not be a sin, but it could be a stumbling block for someone else.

That glass of wine with dinner at a restaurant is not a sinful act. However, someone at the next table may be prone to excessive drinking, know you are a Christian, and justify their excessive drinking on the fact that you drink. We know that is insane logic and makes no sense. However, that is exactly what the Bible is talking about when it speaks of being a stumbling block.

We need to be aware of the things we say and do, because others will be watching and listening, and we want them to see the Christ in us. Again, everyone is responsible for their own choices and actions, but the Word clearly tells us we have a responsibility to be a stepping stone for others, not a stumbling block.

Now this in no way means we should ever compromise the Word, or candy-coat the truth so others will not be offended. The Bible speaks of the Gospel being offensive to many because it is absolute truth that many will never accept. This does mean though, that we need to be aware of the people around us, and without compromising, try to help them further their walk or quest to find a relationship with Christ.

That is what being a stepping stone is all about. I pray today, that you will become more aware of your daily conversation and activities, especially in regard to how others see and hear you. Be aware that they watch and listen, and let them never doubt that Christ dwells within you. How you live and the things you say will either be a stepping stone or a stumbling block to those you come in contact with each day.

It is no accident you work where you work, go to school where you go to school, shop where you shop, play where you play, or live where you live. God has divinely placed you where you are to be a light, an example, a stepping stone in the lives of those you come in contact with each day. Take this responsibility very seriously, and let others see and hear the Christ that lives within you.

I love you and care for you deeply. I will be praying for you today. Be richly blessed as you go forth to be the stepping stone the Lord has raised you up to be!!!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller

The Outrage of the Killing of Cecil the Lion

Leave a comment

(Genesis 2:7, Job 31:15, Psalm 22:9,10, Isaiah 44:2)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I ask you today to open my heart and my Spirit to receive what you have for me today. Let me hear Your voice clearly and obediently follow You. Use me oh Lord, for your glory and to advance Your Kingdom! In the name of Jesus…AMEN!!!

The outrage of the killing of Cecil the lion! A Minnesota dentist went to Zimbabwe to hunt lions and ended up killing an iconic 13-year old lion in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park named Cecil. Local officials said the hunter paid park rangers to lure Cecil out of park and into the wild where he killed the animal. The illegal killing of this prized lion has caused outrage around the world and has been the number one story in the US media.

As sad and tragic as this story is, it is appalling that the killing of one lion in Africa has caused more outrage and public condemnation than the revelation of Planned Parenthood’s side business of selling organs and tissues from the babies they slaughter each day! The same media that has found out every detail about the life of this Minnesota dentist in mere hours, is the same media that won’t even cover the story of Planned Parenthood’s barbarism other than to defend it!

In December of 2007, former Atlanta Falcon QB and NFL superstar Michael Vick was sentenced to 23 months in Federal Prison for dog fighting. While he broke the law and is being held accountable for his actions, I couldn’t help but to think of the many abortion doctors in this nation who go to work every day, slaughter innocent babies, and go home at night to their families without ever being held accountable for their actions. Today’s Devotional is a sobering look at where we are as a nation and a people.

In the United States, the life of a lion or dog is worth more than the life of a human being! Back in 2007, the nation was riveted and closely followed the story of NFL superstar quarterback Michael Vick. It came to light that Vick financed and was an active participant in running a dog fighting enterprise. Fighting dogs is illegal in all 50 states. Additionally, hundreds of thousands of dollars were illegally gambled on these dog fights, and what has enraged most people, was the inhumane treatment of these animals including killing them in numerous brutal ways. Vick has not only been linked to financing this dog fighting operation, but gambling on the fights and personally killing several of the dogs who didn’t perform well.

In the United States in the year 2015, it is illegal to kill a dog but legal to kill a baby! Let me say that one more time since I want this FACT to really sink in. In the United States in the year 2015, it is illegal to kill a dog, but legal to kill a baby! WOW! Does that put the whole Cecil story and what happened to Michael Vick in a different light and show just how spiritually bankrupt we are as a nation? Want more? Michael Vick went to prison for 23 months for killing dogs, yet every single day all over this nation, “doctors” are slaughtering 4,000 babies and going home to their families at the end of the day.

Michael Vick went to Federal prison for killing dogs, but the “doctors” who are paid very well to kill over 4,000 babies EVERY SINGLE DAY in this nation are free!!!

Another aspect of the Vick case that I watched closely as I have the story of Cecil the lion, is the across-the-board outrage by people regarding what happened to these animals. You will be hard pressed to find anyone who even tries to support, let alone, condone what that dentist or Michael Vick did. As it is today, it was virtually universal condemnation for what Vick did to those dogs. What baffles me is where is that same universal condemnation over the fact we kill 4,000 babies in this nation every day? How can the masses get so riled up over the inhumane treatment and killing of a handful of dogs or a lion in Africa, yet sit back in silence as every 24 hours another 4,000 babies are slaughtered?

Here is an interesting side note that can’t go unnoticed. PETA, the ultra liberal People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, was front and center in calling for Vick’s hide and exploited the Vick story to raise millions of dollars for their cause. The hypocrisy is that the vast percentage of people who follow and support PETA also support a woman’s right to kill her baby. So you have this animal rights advocacy group who takes every opportunity to bully and intimidate people who have anything to do with animals, all the way from how cows and chickens are slaughtered to the way animals are killed by fast food restaurants to the killing of animals to make fur coats, leading the charge against Vick for fighting and killing dogs, yet most people in this same group supports the killing of babies!

The real story of the sad and sickening Michael Vick dog fighting/killing tragedy and the killing of Cecil the lion is that in this nation we clearly put more value on the life of an animal than we do a human. It is clear that the life of a lion or dog is more important to society than the life of a baby. This is the only conclusion you can draw since it is illegal in all 50 states to kill dogs but not babies. Someone like Vick who was found guilty of killing dogs went to prison while the “doctors” who kill babies live in freedom. Society has determined that the life of a dog, or as today’s news shows us a lion, is more important than the life of a baby!!!

This is so critical since now it is easy to understand why we are in the spiritual abyss we find ourselves in. The Absolute Truth of the Bible has been replaced by “every man doing what is right in their own eyes.” You see, it is no longer God our Creator who determines Truth, each person is deciding that for themselves. That is why people now accept homosexual relationships that God clearly calls a sin, redefining what God said marriage and the family were to be, all of the false gods of the world, and every other form of rebellion to God and His Word that you can name. When men determine what truth is, that is how you end up with the mass outraged over the death of a lion or a few dogs, yet no response at all to the daily slaughter of 4,000 babies!

I love you and care about you so much. In 16 years, all of the warnings I have been sharing with you are coming to pass. I remember getting emails telling me I was paranoid, the things I shared would never happen, yet here we are in July 2015 and this nation is in spiritual freefall. I see a very small window that could allow us to reclaim this great nation for Christ, but with each passing day that window gets smaller.

The nation has turned to the false gods of the world, the man-made idols, and has chosen to live in complete rebellion to God and the Truth of His Word. Most of Christendom has retreated behind the four walls of the church into the “Christian trough” where they have virtually no impact on the world at large. We have relegated ourselves to what amounts to a modern day leper colony. Christians have become the 21st century lepers. We are treated like outcasts. Despite having the power of Almighty God, we have chosen to hide in our Christian subculture while the world we live in is sinning its way into obliteration with souls dying and going to hell on conveyor belts!

Nothing more exemplifies this than the story of Cecil the lion being killed or the Vick case years ago. Let me clearly state that I believe those who treat animals in an inhumane way should be punished. I never personally understood people “hunting” animals for sport. Dog fighting is a barbaric sport that should be against the law. Those who kill dogs for sport should be prosecuted. I don’t feel sorry for Michael Vick at all and whatever he got what he deserved for his actions.

However, the point I want you to understand today is that as heinous and horrible as the killing of Cecil the lion or the actions of Vick were, the disconnect comes when heinous and horrible acts on a human being are not only legal, but supported by millions of people. Many of the same people who have gone ballistic about the killing of a lion or what Vick did to a few dogs, go equally ballistic if you talk about outlawing the killing of babies or defunding the largest baby-killing business in the world!!!

If you ever needed a reminder regarding the depth of spiritual decay in this country, the killing of Cecil the lion and the Michael Vick cases are that reminder. The reality is that in this country, the life of a lion or dog is more precious than the life of a baby!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

My Prayer is Asking You to Stand in Agreement with Me

Leave a comment

(1 Corinthians 1:9)

“God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:9

My Prayer: “God, thank you for Your love, Your grace, and Your mercy that You have showed in my life. I thank you for allowing me to serve you over these past 23 years. I thank you for giving me the vision of Liveprayer 16 yrs ago, and allowing this unique instrument YOU created to impact tens of millions of lives worldwide, respond to over 100 million emails for prayer, the 10 million praise reports testifying to Your faithfulness, and the 900,000 souls we know of who are or will be in Heaven for all eternity. YOU OH GOD ARE MOST WORTHY TO BE PRAISED!!!

Lord, I come to You today, humbly, but boldly as Your Word instructs. I know based on what You have shown me that our work here is not quite finished. You have shown me that this work of Yours called Liveprayer is to be an instrument You use to sound the trump of warning and help lead this nation back to You and Your Truth before Your wrath and judgment is upon us.

Father, I have given You everything I have physically, mentally, emotionally, financially over these past 23 years in my service to You. I have never compromised Your Truth no matter what the personal consequences have been. You know my heart and that I have never done anything in Your name for money, nor have I exploited You or Your work here for financial gain. My humble prayer since that first month back in 1992 was simply to supply the needs of Your work to bring Your Truth to the marketplace, to pray for the lost and saved alike in their time of need, and to give people the opportunity to accept Your Son as their personal Savior by faith. I have trusted You not for personal riches, but to simply take care of my basic daily needs of food, clothing, and shelter.

You have opened the door for the TV program to be back on the air 27 months ago. I know it is part of Your plan that the TV program You gave me the vision to develop in 2003 was to be the final ministry tool in our work of leading our nation to a national revival and back to You and Your Truth in order to escape Your final wrath and judgment. I have been obedient, and faithful, and have stood on the front lines to deliver Your Truth to a world that is hostile to that Truth, but a world that will one day embrace that Truth as their only hope and answer!

I come to You today Lord, because I have nowhere else to turn. By not turning to the ways of the world, only preaching to the choir and using the well developed tricks of men to get people to give money, we have struggled since day one to simply do all I have ever asked of You, and that was to give me the funds each month to pay our basic operating costs. You know I have never asked for a penny more than what was needed that month, never asked You for anything for myself other than to simply be able to live day to day. Satan’s ONLY way of impeding our work, ONLY way to keep my voice with Your words from reaching more people, has been our finances.

I have accepted that just like by speaking for You in the public square I would be hated, reviled, ridiculed, scorned, spat upon, and have my life threatened. I am honored and unworthy to be persecuted for the sake of the Gospel! As we have gotten closer to our final work for You oh God, as we have worked with little to put the final pieces in place, the challenges simply to exist have multiplied exponentially. It is by Your grace so many dear friends and those who love You have made incredible sacrifices over these past 16 yrs to see the work of Liveprayer continue. In the past several years, many of our friends have seen their finances challenged by the current economy and have been unable to help us as they once did.

But You oh Lord always have a “ram in the bush.” You have brought our work to the heart of those who have been able to make the great sacrifce to help us and see Your work here continue. It is no surprise having walked this walk of faith over 23 yrs now that satan is taking one last attempt to silence Liveprayer. He knows You have an army of angels encamped around me, protecting, and until You say my work is finished I will be here to boldly declare the Truth of Your Word and the Gospel of Jesus Christ to this lost world. His only hope is to cause confusion and apathy in the hearts of those who have the ability to help us.

Oh Lord my God, I come to You this day and ask that You take off the blinders from those who satan has deceived, open the hearts of those satan has lied to, and let Your Holy Spirit inspire those You have blessed and enabled to step in and support Your work here. It has never been so critical in all of these years of toil, yet I have never had such peace since I know in the end it has never been me, but always You! I am asking, no demanding, that satan be bound from the hearts and minds of those You are speaking to this day!

If the world can raise billions for political ideologies, worthy causes of every kind, if those who work in your name can raise tens of millions to buy private jets, mansions, Bentley’s, buildings with huge staffs, stay in $10,000 a night hotel suites to live like the wayward “priests” in the OT, than I KNOW that You can move on hearts to help us raise the $65,000 we simply need to operate each month. It is a modern loaves and fishes miracle that for a little over $2,200 a day, we can minister each day to over 2.5 million worldwide, respond each day to 40,000 emails for prayer, do a “live” TV program for 2 hours every Mon-Fri seen by over 100,000 people in over 100 markets around the nation, while seeing apx. 2,000 souls every week come to faith in Your Son!

Oh God, my back is to the wall, the wolves are at the door demanding the funds we owe to simply operate, and I am simply on my knees asking You oh God to help me this day. Move on hearts and minds of those who can help me in this hour of distress. As we have stood with literally millions worldwide over the years, let those who You speak to stand with Your work here in our time of need. Thank you Lord for your love, grace, and mercy! I will never falter no matter what the circumstances, and as I have for 23 years now, faithfully declaring Your Truth and Gospel to a lost and hurting world that needs You more than ever. AMEN!”

After 16 yrs of Liveprayer, over 5,800 Daily Devotionals, this is a first for me. Let me say up front, THANK YOU to all my friends who sent such encouraging and loving emails yesterday. In the midst of our daily work, the financial challenges we are dealing with, and the unprecedented amount of death threats and hate mail from taking a Biblical stand on this satanically inspired division tearing our nation apart, it was a blessing above and beyond what you can imagine. For those who took the time and effort to share your love and encouragement..THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU!

Here is where we are at this moment. Having just covered the balance of our June operations late last week, we still need to cover $55,000 of our $40,000 July Internet operations/$25,000 July TV. With just 2 days left, we are now $15,000 critically overdue on basic July operations from the first weeks of the month. I am asking YOU to pray today about being one of 3 people who is able to help me right away with a special one-time gift of $5,000 to insure this critical past due amount is taken care of. This will take a TON of pressure off me and at least keeps our basic operations up to date. If everyone else will pray, give as the Lord guides them to give, I am standing in faith that by the start of next week, ALL of our July operations will be current!!!

I know that I am asking some of you to make an incredible sacrifce. I guess because I spend 12-15 hours every day on our work here at Liveprayer, and have for 16 yrs now since we started, I look at things so different than most. However, over those 16 yrs, it has been the love, prayers, and incredible sacrifce of so many that even allowed us to get to where we are and have the impact on millions and millions of lives worldwide. As I have shared many times, our only real legacy will be those lives we have impacted for the Lord.

I AM NOT GOING TO LET SATAN SLOW DOWN OR END GOD’S WORK HERE AFTER 16 YEARS OF PRAYERS AND SACRIFICES BY SO MANY. WE ARE NOT FINISHED! GOD HAS ONE LAST WORK FOR US TO PERFORM AND THAT IS TO HELP LEAD A NATIONAL REVIVAL. WE NOW HAVE ALL THE PIECES WITH THE TV PROGRAM BACK ON THE AIR, AND I REFUSE TO LET SATAN STOP US NOW!!! I NEED YOUR PRAYERS, AND I NEED YOUR HELP TODAY!!!

I love and care about you so much. Please stand in agreement with me for my prayer at the beginning. It is exciting being in the Lord’s service, though, it is not for the faint of heart. It is the love, prayers, and kindness of friends like you who make it all possible. Know that I pray for you and your family daily, since it is no accident or coincidence God has brought us together for this season. We will keep pressing on towards the prize, letting nothing deter us since we know satan is a liar and a loser, knowing that in the end…JESUS HAS ALREADY WON!!!! AMEN!!! AMEN!!! AMEN!!!

The Headlines of the Day are Screaming for a Nation to Turn Back to God

Leave a comment

(Deuteronomy 8:19, 20)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, bless me this day to have the courage to stand up for YOUR TRUTH in my daily life. Give me boldness to proclaim YOUR TRUTH when I am with those who mock and demean our faith in Christ and for following the teachings of the Bible. No matter what they may say, let me be not afraid to stand for you. In Jesus name…AMEN!

The headlines of the past few days are SCREAMING for a nation to turn back to God! The clear signs are being seen here and around the world that the judgment of God is falling, and our ONLY hope is to turn back to God and His Truth! As you read through these news headlines and the comments I made to help you see these individual issues in the context of the overall spiritual state of our nation, remember God’s hand of protection and blessings is OFF this nation! These are simply a few of the current daily signs to a lost and hurting nation in spiritual freefall to turn back to our Creator and His Truth, or we will face His ultimate wrath and judgment as the children of Israel did many times for their sin and rebellion!!!

-Pray for the people of Lafayette, LA as they heal from the tragic theater shooting. The Liveprayer TV program airs nightly in the Lafayette market, and our prayers are with the family of the two young women who were slain, and for the healing of the 3 still in the hospital recovering from their wounds. This is simply another example of a nation that has virtually NO MENTAL HEALTH infrastructure. As I have shared in the past, mental health professionals say that if you are in the check-out line at a grocery store with 10 people, TWO should not be out in public without daily supervision. Until we address the growing mental health problem that exists in a large percentage of the population, quit using the prison system as the default answer for the problem, we will continue to see the horrific events that occur daily throughout the nation in varying degrees.

-I have dealt extensively on the TV program about the advancement of robotics, that I will address in a Daily Devotional very soon. It is anticipated 20% of jobs currently held by humans will be replaced by robots within the next ten years. There are incredibly advanced versions of human-like robots that are actually doing household chores and playing the role of a spouse. Even more ominous now are actual robot armies that are being developed. Literally an army of robot foot soldiers who engage in warfare like a human army.

-Detroit has unveiled a new 9-foot one-ton statue of satan outside the cities satanic temple.

-If you or I did a fraction of what Hillary Clinton did regarding using a private email server that you would only go to such trouble to set-up in order to insure nobody could ever see your emails, we would not be in jail, we would be UNDER the jail! I am still waiting for the gutless media to question her on her favorite charity, Planned Parenthood, harvesting organs and tissue from the babies they slaughter.

-Speaking of the evil Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, the current President, needs to get on her knees and beg for God’s forgiveness! Defending her baby killing organization last Sunday, she sat there and lied about all of the “women’s services” they provide, when 90% of the income from Planned Parenthood comes from the killing of innocent babies. As I have addressed for over a decade in the Daily Devotional, why does 1/2 BILLION of taxpayer dollars go to fund this private organization that generates apx $500,000 million in billing from killing babies each year and takes in another $400 million in donations! Liveprayer ministers to millions worldwide daily, leads lost souls to faith in Jesus, responds annually to just under 15 million emails for prayer…for right at $800,000! “Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”

-A Muslim professor at Rutgers made the ridiculous claim that the US is more brutal than ISIS. Even though the case she made to justify this was 100% foolishness, she actually is right when you take into account we slaughter 4,000 innocent babies every 24 hours. Not even ISIS is that brutal!

-Lastly on this issue, Planned Parenthood was founded in the early 1920s for the sole purpose of wiping out the black race. Those pushing this mantra of BlackLivesMatter to advance a political agenda aren’t serious until they start picketing outside abortion clinics where 1,400 of the 4,000 babies murdered each day are BLACK! Why does virtually every black politician support Planned Parenthood, INCLUDING OUR BABY-KILLER IN CHIEF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA? That is like Jewish politicians supporting Nazi Germany! Even worse, why are virtually ALL of the black churches and high profile black pastors SILENT on this issue?

All of this only exacerbates the fact I have shared with you that God’s hand of protection is no longer on this nation. We are currently on our own. The only question is whether God’s final wrath and judgment will be unleashed ending this nation as we know it, or will we turn back to our Creator and His Truth before it is too late?

I love and care about you so much. God is showing us DAILY that we must stop, turn back to Him and His Truth or be destroyed as He promised to do in today’s anchor verse. I wake up every day with the knowledge and understanding that we can still be like the people of Nineveh and that 2015 will be a year of victory as our verse for the year states, “But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!”

In His love and service,

How Often Do We Pray

Leave a comment

(Luke 17:11-19)

***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!

How often do we pray, asking God to help us with a need in our life, and in His grace and mercy our prayer is answered. The real question for today is, after we get our answer, how often do we spend time just giving Him the praise and thanks He deserves? Mankind really has changed very little over the years. In today’s scripture, we read about the 10 lepers who were healed, yet only one came back to give Jesus thanks.

It is easy to read that passage and condemn the other 9, yet each one of us has probably been guilty of receiving God’s blessings and not being as thankful as we should be. We can get to a place in our walk with the Lord where we are used to His blessings. We can get to a place where we expect His blessings. As His children, we should enjoy the rich blessings of God in our life and live a life of faith expecting Him to bless us. The problem comes when we take His blessings for granted and aren’t as thankful as we should be. We must never forget, we are blessed by His grace…not because we deserve to be blessed.

Today’s message is not difficult or hard to understand. If nothing else, let it be a reminder to you to never take God’s blessings in your life for granted. More important, never forget to show your gratitude for all He does for you each day. Growing up, young children are taught to say please and thank you. It is not only good manners to say thank you, but should be something we want to do. We pray, believe, trust, and see God work . . . the natural reaction should be one of gratitude. Our praise and thanksgiving should flow from a grateful heart for what He has done for us.

The reminder today is to never forget when God is blessing you that it is because He loves you and cares for you. The natural response to that love should be to love Him, adore Him, and give Him the thanks He is due. Check yourself and make sure you are not like the 9 who took their blessing and went on with their life, but like the one who was grateful for what the Lord did for him.

I love you and care about you so much. I pray that you continue to grow closer in your relationship to the Lord. Like any relationship, it doesn’t happen overnight, but grows day by day. I can promise you that the most exciting days are still ahead. He has a perfect plan for each one of His children, and it is our job to stay close to Him so that He can work through our lives to reach others. I will be praying today that you will stay in that close, intimate, daily relationship with Christ that is the key to our life.

Never forget that when you get off track, overwhelmed by the problems this life can present, I will be here to help you. It is no accident you are getting the Devotionals each day, and God is doing His best to speak to you through them. He loves you so much and so do I. You are never alone!!!

Please, take a moment today to simply say a prayer of thanksgiving, and thank God for ALL that He does for you each and every day. It is out of His love for us that He blesses our lives, and it is out of our love for Him that we say THANK YOU!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,
