God Is Faithful to Those Who Are Faithful to Him: A Case History

Good morning, Happy Souls!

Bill Keller wrote a devotional today that I
recommend to you. He has given me permission to
copy his e-mails, and I'm sure he would be happy if
you would share this with people you know as well.

Sometimes God sends us off to do what seems to be
impossible. But for God, all things are possible. When
we are faithfully following His will, His Grace can
open doors that we cannot open by ourselves. Our job?
Be faithful!

Please read on.


( Deuteronomy 7:9 )

"Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the
faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand
generations of those who love him and keep his commands."
(Deuteronomy 7:9)

God is faithful! The word I want you to hear today is
that GOD IS FAITHFUL! No matter what you are going
through today, no matter what your situation or
circumstance may be, you can count on God being faithful.
He has not left you, He has not abandoned you, He has
promised in His Word to never leave you nor forsake you.
God will see you through whatever it is you are facing
today. He will give you His strength and courage to
endure, and you will walk in His victory in the end. God,
not man, will always have the last word!

Note in this wonderful testimony and promise of God's
faithfulness from the Book of Deuteronomy it says, "To
those who love Him and keep His commands." Do you want
to experience the faithfulness of God in your life? The
Bible say that if you love Him and if you follow His Word,
you have the assurance that God will be faithful! That
means no matter what trials or tribulations you may face
in your life, continue to love God and obey Him and you
have the promise and assurance from God Himself that He
will be faithful.

Over 7 years ago God gave me a vision for a live,
interactive website to minister to the hundreds of millions
of people on the Internet throughout the world. It would
be something nobody else was doing. Nobody but the
pornographers had a live video feed of a person online 24/7.
There were lots of prayer sites, but none were set up to
actually email back with personal responses to prayer
requests. There were many Devotionals on the Internet, but
none really addressed the daily issues of life we all face
and were set up to interact with the reader.

When Liveprayer was created in 1999, we had arrangements
with two venture capital firms to infuse Liveprayer with
approximately $12 million in capital after we hit the 6-
month mark. By the time we were 6 months old, the "Dot
Com" bubble had bust, both venture firms were bankrupt,
and I had no clue how Liveprayer would survive. I
continued to do the only thing I knew how and that was to
love God, obey His Word and show up each day to faithfully
serve Him. Several people who believed in the vision
loaned the ministry the money we needed to stay alive in
those early months and as we hit the 2-year mark, enough
people were donating so that we were able to meet our
monthly budget.

When God opened the door over 3 years ago for us to do a
"live" TV program for an hour, 5 nights a week, on a major
secular network, again, something nobody was or is doing,
one man and his wife loaned the ministry $150,000 to cover
the first 3 months on the air. I had no idea how we would
meet the $40,000/month TV budget after that, but I
continued to love God, obey His Word, and be faithful to
the work He had called me to do. Of course, God was
faithful as we are now into our 39th month now of being on
"live" for an hour every Monday-Friday on UPN in Tampa,

When God opened the door last July to expand to ABC in
Miami, West Palm Beach, Jacksonville, PAX in Orlando and
the WB in Ft. Myers in addition to being on each night in
Tampa, I knew this was the opportunity to see the ultimate
goal of having the program on nationwide become a reality.
I had no idea how we would meet the additional $100,000
each month to the TV budget, but God moved on my heart to
start "The 300" and it has been the great sacrifice so
far by 77 saints of God that has made the expansion of the
TV program possible. I have loved God, obeyed His Word,
and been faithful to the work He has called me to do and
meeting the TV budget each month has been a testimony of
His faithfulness.

In 55 days, 8 weeks from yesterday, God has opened the
doors for the Liveprayer TV program to go nationwide
"live" every Monday-Friday from Midnight-1 a.m EST on the
PAX (now called Ion) Network. The PDF files at the
bottom of this link ( http://www.liveprayer.com/dvd.cfm )
will give you the complete coverage maps which will allow
us to reach over 83% of the nation. Our new TV budget
will be right at $10 million a year and our Internet
budget will increase to right at $1 million a year. Those
funds will come 100% from advertising revenues, meaning as
of July 1st I will no longer have to ask people to
financially support Liveprayer! My goal has never been to
see how much money I could raise, only raise what we
needed to do what God has called us to do...proclaim His
Truth to this lost world and save souls! As I continue to
love God, follow His Word and do my best to faithfully
serve Him each day, God continues to be faithful exactly
as He promised he would!

At every step in the 80+ month history of Liveprayer, God
has moved supernaturally to keep His work alive and help
us to reach more people. This is actually the final step
in the growth of this ministry, and by far the biggest of
all. At critical times it has always been someone who
God spoke to who was obedient to step up and help us. We
are at a critical time right now. Our initial payment to
PAX of $708,000 which covers our first 4 weeks starting
July 3rd was due May 1st. The catch-22 we are in is
that we need the rest of this month and the month of June
to tie down our initial 48 advertisers for those first 4
weeks and collect from them. We already have 3 contracts,
7 more contracts out for signature, and moving forward
daily on bringing in the rest. (For info on advertising,
contact me at: bkeller@liveprayer.com )

Obviously, once the program is actually on the air it will
give us much more leverage with future advertisers and
the success of the program will translate into the
financial success we will need to sustain it. We are
confident of that success not based on hope, but based on
the ratings and most importantly changed lives by the
program over the past 38 months in Tampa and 10 months
across the entire state of Florida. It has proven to be
a success in the Tampa market, it has proven to be a
success across the state of Florida, which is why I am
certain it will be a success on a national scale.

*Today, I am asking you to pray with me for God to bring
forth the one person who has the financial means and will
hear His voice and answer this call. Obviously it would be
nice if the $708,000 was a gift to the ministry, but
knowing we will have these revues from the advertising
dollars by the end of June, I have no problem entering into
a 60-day note and pay whatever interest we agree upon. It
took several to step up in those very early days of
Liveprayer to keep us alive when there was no other way,
it took someone to step up to make the Liveprayer TV
program a reality over 3 years ago, it has taken many key
individuals to step up and keep the TV program across the
entire state going these past 10 months, and today it is
going to be someone who can step up and help us meet this
current need. (If God is leading you to help, contact me

***Most people are content to watch and read about how
others serve God, while a few sacrifice all they have to
become the ones the rest watch and read about. Rather
than be satisfied reading about history, why not go out
and be part of making history? It is no accident or
coincidence God has brought you into the life of Liveprayer
and you are a big part of the special work of Liveprayer.
While I may be the face of this ministry, you and everyone
who has invested their prayers and treasure here are the
heart, and you storing up great rewards in Heaven!. I
serve God first, but I also serve you since you make this
all possible. I love God and you, I try daily to obey His
Word, and I will continue to be faithful to serve Him and
you to the best of my ability knowing God will be faithful
because He promised to!!!

I love you and care about you so much. In these past 80+
months, over 120,000 souls we know of have come to know
Jesus as their Savior, we have over 2 million praise
reports archived, each day over 2.2 million are ministered
to through the Daily Devotional, we send personal responses
to over 40,000 emails for prayer every day, and 5 nights a
week over 250,000 people watch the "live" TV program. Tens
of millions of lives worldwide have heard the Truth of
God's word, found hope in their time of need, and had their
lives impacted by Liveprayer because friends like YOU love
God, obey His Word, and God has been faithful!

Let me be blunt. Satan is boldly telling his lies 24/7
in the marketplace with little opposition. CBS will be
airing public service announcements labeling critics of
homosexuality as bigots! The Scientology cult is
unveiling a new "Super Powers" program to lure more into
their cult. God has given me the spiritual guts to go
into that same marketplace and call sin sin, warn people
of the cults and false religions of this world, tell
people that without Jesus they are going to hell, while
bringing hope to the hurting and unleashing the power of
God in people's lives. Every Monday thru Friday for the
past 166 weeks I have been in the TV studio each night
faithfully doing this on the Liveprayer TV program.

It is long past time for someone with the spiritual guts
to compete with the Oprahs and Phils and Montels of the
world, as well as all the rest who are on TV each day
giving people false hope and leading them away from
Jesus. I have been faithfully serving him with my every
breath for over 16 years, paying the price those many
years by literally giving my life as a living sacrifice
for the work of the Kingdom. I am very aware that God has
called me forth and raised me up in this day and hour for
this job.

One of my staff asked me the other day what happens if we
don't get the $708,000 we need. I told him I had not even
thought about it since I know somehow, some way, God will
make a way. What is at stake are the eternal souls of
people who are heading to hell. Within the first year the
TV program will be reaching well over 1 million viewers,
the vast majority of them won't be Christians. By the end
of the first year we will have well over 5 million
subscribers to the Daily Devotional. We will be a loud,
bold, and visible voice for Biblical truth that the world
will not be able to ignore! We are battling for the souls
of men and God will make a way!

It is God that birthed and sustained Liveprayer, not Bill
Keller. My job is to love Him, obey Him, be faithful to
do the work He has called me to do each day and leave the
rest up to Him. Please pray today about letting God use
you to be part of the life changing, soul saving work of

Let me leave you with this word of encouragement. The
same God who has been faithful in my life, the same God
who has been faithful in the life of Liveprayer, is the
very same God ho will be faithful to YOU! The key is to
love God, follow His Word, and know that God will be
faithful because He said He would!

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