***MAY FINANCIAL UPDATE! As we head into the final 4 days of the month, we
still need to bring in $28,000 of the $40,000 for our basic operations. We
are blessed that now with the TV program back on the air, over the coming
months it will bring new people into the Liveprayer family, new friends to
help support God's work here, as we work each day to lead this nation back
to God and His Truth. Several deals that were on hold until we were back on
the air are now moving forward, and in the coming months they will help take
much of the pressure off raising our monthly finances and help us expand the
number of cities the program will be seen each night.
Please take a moment and pray about what God is asking you to do in these
next days to help insure we end the month with all of our basic operations
met as we head into June and the summer months without any shortfall. Thank
you for your love, prayers, and sacrifce as together we change the spiritual
course of the nation while leading lost souls to faith in Jesus!

***ASK BILL: Pastor Bill, during a recent 60 Minutes program interview with
Sheryl Sandberg (CEO of Facebook), she used the words G.D. I was very
dismayed and have sent an email to 60 Minutes expressing my disappointment
that they did not bleep those words. I tolerate more than I should of bad
language, but using the Lord's name in vain is extremely offensive to me. It
is a shame we can't even watch the news without having to hear that.
ANSWER: Sadly, there is no longer a fear of God. The use of the Lord's name
in vain, the glorification of perverting God's plan for marriage and the
family, the acceptance of infanticide, ALL demonstrate the sad spiritual
state of our nation. More important, these are the issues that unless
reversed, will bring God's wrath and punishment on our nation!
Today is Sunday. For most, Sunday is a time to get away from the pressures
of work and relax. Let me encourage you to spend as much time as possible
today putting your troubles on hold and focusing instead on rest and
I am not trying to minimize the complex and difficult situations many of you
are facing, but we MUST find pockets of time in our life to put the burdens
down and simply rest. You are much better equipped to handle life's problems
when you are fresh and energized, than when you are tired and running on
fumes. It is in those run down times when our problems look insurmountable
that we are most apt to become depressed and lose hope. Even Jesus had to
get away once in a while to recharge his physical body.
A time of rest does many things for you. It helps you to regain your
physical strength. However, just as important, it allows you to regain your
mental strength. Fighting day after day wears us down mentally and we get so
focused on our problems that we lose sight of possible alternatives that may
help us in our struggles. Getting worn down also causes us to lose
perspective causing us to forget that God is still in control.
Most important though, a time of rest helps us to refocus on our personal
relationship with the Lord. In the midst of our trials, we can miss out on
that daily, intimate time with Him which just compounds our problems. That
time of rest allows us to not only recharge our bodies and minds, but our
relationship with the Lord.
Just hours before going to the cross, Jesus told His disciples that in this
life they would have many trials. He did not want them to be deceived into
thinking that just because they had walked with Him, they were immune from
life's problems. But He promised them that He would always be with them.
We are heirs to that promise as followers of Christ. It is the Christ living
in us that gives us the ability to live victorious lives. Never lose sight
that the Bible tells us that we are more than conquerors through Him. That
means whatever you are facing today, whatever obstacles may be in your life,
because of Jesus, you can overcome them and be victorious. So today while
you rest, while you recharge, dwell not on your problems.....but on the fact
that we have total victory in Jesus!
I love you and care about you. I pray that you will have a wonderful day of
rest and relaxation, that you will be able to spend quality time with family
and friends, and that most important you will spend some quality time with
the Lord. He loves you, cares about you, and will make you adequate each day
for the challenges that you face.
Focus on living life in His strength and not your strength, and those
burdens won't seem as heavy. Enjoy this day as you put your troubles on hold
and find that peace that passes all human understanding, in Him.
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
