The story 19 yrs ago of Elian Gonzales!

Tuesday, April 23, 2019   -   Category: CHILDREN

(Matthew 19:14)


***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, USE ME in these perilous, last days, as a messenger of Your hope in Jesus. Father, make me aware of the people You have put in my life each day, many who will die and burn in hell for all eternity for rejecting Christ, and use me as a vessel of Your love and hope. I Thank You for sending Jesus to die for my sins that I might know the free gift of everlasting life, and I ask today that You help me to lead others to that wonderful eternal relationship with Christ. For it is in HIS name I pray...AMEN!

***19 years ago, Liveprayer was less than one year old. The nation was transfixed by a little boy from Cuba, Elian Gonzales. It was a heartbreaking story of a little boy who came to the US from Cuba with his mother in a small homemade boat that took on water and caused his mother and several others to drown to death. Little Elian had family in Miami's Little Havana who welcomed him into their home. However, his father ...

Never losing sight of what God has called us to do!!!

Monday, April 22, 2019   -   Category: LEADERSHIP

(Luke 19:1-10)


***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Lord, Thank You for meeting my daily needs as You have promised in your Word. I look to You and You alone for my sustenance through life, and Thank You for Your faithfulness. Please help me to be a good steward of the funds You entrust into my care during this life, and give me favor in my finances, and wisdom in my decisions. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!

As we have just celebrated Holy Week, one of the things I love about reading the accounts of the ministry of Jesus was the fact He never lost sight of what He had come to do. He came to preach the Good News to the lost and hurting of the world. His ministry was NOT in the church of His day, but was to those outside of the church. Jesus took His message of hope into the streets to those who were living without God in their life, telling them that there was a better way to live. JESUS HAD SPIRITUAL GUTS!!!

Today, more than ever we need men and women of God ...

THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST!!!

Sunday, April 21, 2019   -   Category: RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST

(Matthew 28:5-7)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, give me an abundance of your JOY this Resurrection Day! Let the "joy of the Lord" me mine on this day, and help me to share that joy with others. In the name of Jesus...AMEN!!!

HE IS RISEN!!!!!!!!

Today, marks the greatest historical event in human history...the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The reason the resurrection of Jesus is the greatest historical event is because it is the absolute key to our faith. Paul said in his first letter to the church at Corinth in the 15th chapter, that if Christ did not rise from the dead, then we are still dead in our sin and most vain of all. However, if He did rise from the dead, then we have the assurance our sins are forgiven and of everlasting life.

You see, Jesus is either the biggest fraud in the history of mankind or He is exactly who He claims to be...the Son of God. The resurrection is the key event.

The historical evidence of Christ's resurrection is ...

Is there something in this world that you love more than God?

(1 John 2:15; Titus 2:12; Galatians 4:3; Colossians 2:20; 2 Corinthians 5:15-17)


***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, please help me to be more like Jesus each day. Help me to be kind to others, to care about others, to share the hope of the Gospel with others. I love Jesus and my greatest desire is to be more like my Savior each day. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!!!

After writing the Daily Devotional every day for nearly 20 years now, I already know when I am going to catch lots of grief from what I write. This is going to be one of those days so I am prepared for it. Let me start today by asking you a fair question. Is there something in this world that you love more than God?

I have no doubt some people will pause as they think of the love they have for their spouse, for their parents, for their children. As much as we may love those special people God blesses us with during our brief journey through life, our love for God MUST always be first. Thi...

Today is the day that we celebrate one of the greatest events in human history, the death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on the cross!!! Today is truly a day of rejoicing. Because of the sacrifice Jesus made, giving His very life as the one-time perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind, we can be forgiven of our sins and reunited with our Lord for eternity.

So much of what I deal with each day in this ...
