Daily Devotional for Wednesday November 18, 2020
(2 Thessalonians 3:3)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, Thank You for JOY. Even in the midst of the challenges of life, I can still have JOY in my heart because of my Lord and Savior. Help me this day to pass that JOY on to others who are hurting. May I never forget that regardless of the day to day issues of this life, because of You I will always have that JOY! In the name of Jesus..AMEN!!!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: In the aftermath of 9/11, people desperately turned to God for answers. Churches were overflowing, prayer was everywhere, there was a spiritual awakening as people realized just how fragile this life really is, and countless lives were committed to Christ. However, just eight short months later, church attendance was back to where it was pre-9/11, prayer was not as important any longer, and people focused once again on the things of this world without much concern for God and their spiritual lives. That was our last major national disaster. Fast forward to today. Of course we are dealing with a totally different crisis, but the fact is over the last 19 years since 9/11 fewer people than ever are going to church. At this moment in the history of our nation when churches all across the nation should have been full of people looking to God for HIS help, over 50% were closed. CLOSED! I get the caution in further spreading the coronavirus. I also get the potential legal liability. BUT AS SOME POINT THE PEOPLE OF GOD NEED TO STAND ON OUR FAITH AND LEAD! NEVER IS THAT BOLD LEADERSHIP NEEDED MORE THAN AT THIS MOMENT IN HUMAN HISTORY, YET MOST OF OUR CHURCHES ARE CLOSED AND MOST PASTORS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND!!! JESUS RAN TO THE SICK AND INFIRMED, NOT FROM THEM!!! FAITH OVER FEAR!!!

“But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.” 2 Thessalonians 3:3
BLOCKED! This weekend, the Liveprayer.com Daily Devotional was being blocked by several email providers. This is a battle we have fought since day 1 as forces of evil seek to silence God’s Truth! Thanks to the Lord and our great tech team that works tirelessly, we were able to get past all of the blocks!!! AMEN!!!
On our website, millions worldwide have viewed the Daily Devotionals and thousands of hours of content to bless people. Needless to say it generates an incredible amount of animus and hatred from Islamic groups, those who promote same-sex marriage and sexual deviancy, as well as the baby-killing industry.
Over the years hackers have disrupted the websites of many of the top banks businesses and governments around the world. These entities have MILLIONS OF DOLLARS worth of the most current and sophisticated security software to protect their websites, yet when targeted, NO website is immune.
After over 22 years online, Liveprayer has been attacked, hacked, and blocked thousands of times. However, our incredible tech people have kept us online, with less than 100 hours of down time combined!!!. That my friend, is because we have GOD HIMSELF watching over Liveprayer!!!
For the record, our credit card donation server is on a special server controlled by our processor, triple encrypted, with critical information not stored on the server to keep it secure. By the grace of God, over 22 years and not ONE issue with that critical part of our ministry since protecting our donors and keeping their anonymity has been a top priority!
God raised up Liveprayer in these last days to bring His message of hope and everlasting life through faith in His Son Jesus Christ! This is why Liveprayer has never been part of the Christian establishment, has not taken the millions available by going on Christian TV, but has chosen instead to deal with the wrath and hatred of the masses by taking God's Truth directly to the marketplace.
I love and care about you so much. I refuse to allow satan to keep us from what God has called us to do, impacting lives for Christ 24/7/365 while bringing His Truth to the masses in order to lead this nation back to the Almighty and Biblical Truth! God has always helped us keeping Liveprayer.com up and as secure as possible. I have done my best to be faithful, have never backed down, never compromised or sold out the Truth for money, while walking each day these last 22 years by faith trusting Him alone! AMEN!!!
Please continue to stand with me with your love, prayers, and generous sacrifices as we lead this nation back to God and His Truth! THANK YOU!!!
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
