My birthday present to YOU!!!

Monday, February 18, 2019   -   Category: HEALTH

(Luke 4:18)


***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, thank you for another day of life. Let me never get so caught up in just 'getting through the day" I don't appreciate each day for the gift from You it is! Bless this day, and allow me to use it in some small way for your glory. Thank you for this life, and most of all, for my eternal relationship with You! In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!

Today is a special day for me as I celebrate my 61st birthday. I never forget that tomorrow is promised to none of us and that each day is a gift from God. So I am most grateful for the Lord blessing me with these years of life, and am even more grateful that He allows me the honor of waking up each morning to serve Him.

My hand is to the plough, I am not looking back, and am so excited each morning at what God is going to do in people's lives that day. I look forward to sharing the Truth of God's Word and the hope and love of Jesus Christ with the lost and hurting in ...

"Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel...”

Sunday, February 17, 2019   -   Category: PASTORS

(Ezekiel 34:1-6)


***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, I know this is an evil and sin-filled world I live in. Please, protect me, but don't let me be afraid. Let me be bold in declaring Your Truth to this lost world and not be afraid to speak up. Now more than ever I need Your strength to be the servant You have called me to be. Help me, strengthen me, and guide me to do Thy will. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!

"The word of the LORD came to me: "Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy and say to them: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Woe to the shepherds of Israel who only take care of themselves! Should not shepherds take care of the flock? You eat the curds, clothe yourselves with the wool and slaughter the choice animals, but you do not take care of the flock. You have not strengthened the weak or healed the sick or bound up the injured. You have not brought back the strays or searched for the lost. You have ruled them harshly ...

Pleasing God and making our life matter!

Saturday, February 16, 2019   -   Category: LIFE

(Isaiah 58:7)


***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, this nation is under Your judgment for our sin, wickedness, and rebellion. Help me to be courageous as I stand for You in these perilous times. Use me as a beacon of Your light in the darkness of our world today. Though our enemies surround us, the world around me curses You, help me to stand for Your Truth that will ultimately defeat the lies of satan. May the evil of this world become so apparent, people will begin to bow their knee to You in repentance knowing YOU are their only hope and only answer! In the name of Jesus...AMEN!!!

Pleasing God and making our life matter. We often get so caught up in living of our lives day to day , it is easy to forget why God has given us this wonderful gift of life. It is to serve and glorify Him. That is the bottom line of why we are here. Unfortunately, we can get far, far away from that purpose during the course of our years here on earth.

Obviously, one of the enemie...

Are you a loyal person?

Friday, February 15, 2019   -   Category: LOYALTY

(Hebrews 13:5, 1 Samuel 22:1)


***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I have strayed from you and want to come home. I have allowed the daily life in this world to lead me astray, to allow me to drift from you, and I miss you dear Lord! Today, I recommit my heart and life to you and to serve you. Use me for your glory Lord. Make my life count for your Kingdom. Above all, bring to me your PEACE and JOY! Give me the joy of my salvation again as I walk close to you each moment of each day. In Jesus name I pray...AMEN!

One of the observations I've made over nearly 61 years of life is that loyalty has become a very rare commodity. Growing up, I was taught that being loyal was an important part of who you were as a person. Just like I was taught to always tell the truth, to help others, to be kind, being loyal was an important element in making up the fabric of a person's character.

The longer I live, the more I see loyalty missing in the character make-up of most ...

The day the world celebrates LOVE!!!

Thursday, February 14, 2019   -   Category: LOVE

(1 Corinthians 13)


***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, guide me throughout this day. Give me Your strength to be a blessing to those I meet along my journey today. Let Your light in me shine brightly as I represent You during this day. I love You, and let me show that love as I live for You today. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!

Today is the day the world celebrates that powerful force known as love. The world mainly focuses on the romantic aspect of this emotion, but I want to focus on the true meaning of the word from God's perspective. You see God's love, Biblical love, has an aspect that the world tries to copy but fails. That aspect of God's love, the love spoken of in the Bible, is that it is UNCONDITIONAL. I can tell you right now, that in our frail human condition it is impossible to love anyone unconditionally. However, when you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, when you have the strength that God imparts to you, to love someone unconditionall...

Keep pressing forward!

(Philippians 3:14)


***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, guide me throughout this day. Give me Your strength to be a blessing to those I meet along my journey today. Let Your light in me shine brightly as I represent You during this day. I love You, and let me show that love as I live for You today. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!

Keep pressing forward! Today is one of those days when I just want to pull up a chair, sit next to you, and talk. Today it isn't evangelist Bill Keller standing in the pulpit preaching a sermon, or on a platform dealing with the issues of the day from a Biblical worldview, this is simply your friend Bill, sitting next to you and giving you some encouragement.

I want to tell you that no matter what you may be facing today, keep pressing forward. Don't let the challenges of daily life detour you, keep pressing forward. In the midst of the battles you are fighting in your life today, keep pressing forward!

(Malachi 1:1-9)


***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord! Today I come to You, asking You to bless the dear people who we faithfully minister to each day. I ask for Your protection, that You meet their every need, and bless them and their families richly. As I have each morning for 19 years now, I commit YOUR work to You this day. May Your Truth in the marketplace, lives be impacted, and souls saved....FOR YOUR GLORY! My life is in Your hands and I simply ask that You use me so You are glorified!!! In the name of Jesus my Lord I pray....AMEN!!!

SATAN IS A LIAR AND A LOSER!!!

Towards the end of 2017, satan in his arrogance thought that after trying for 18 yrs to shut down Liveprayer he had succeeded. As I tell you often...GOD ALWAYS HAS THE FINAL WORD! At that time we were running a financial shortfall of over $200,000. The very ability to keep Liveprayer online was being threatened daily, and we literally did "go down" numerous times that September and October ...
