No One Turned Away At LivePrayer.com
ST. PETERSBURG, FL. (February 7, 2006) --- LivePrayer.com, the worldwide online prayer resource founded by former businessman Bill Keller, has responded individually to an astounding 60,000,000 requests for personalized prayers since its launch in 1999. With the bold declaration “No One Turned Away,” LivePrayer.com has become a haven for the millions of people who have often felt rejected by mainstream religion or ostracized by society.
“LivePrayer.com is about healing and restoration,” explained Keller. “Our goal at Live Prayer is to change the Internet from a cold, faceless void into a tool to reach millions of hurting souls worldwide. We are not here to preach to the choir.”
For countless thousands of hurting people across the nation, LivePrayer.com has meant the difference between life and death. Keller estimates that LivePrayer.com may have intervened in as many as 1,300 suicide calls.
Headquartered in St. Petersburg, Florida, LivePrayer.com is an online resource where people can go 24 hours a day to see and hear, through streaming video, a man or woman pray for their needs. “Every man and woman, no matter where they live in the world and regardless of their economic standing, has trials and tribulations in life, from health problems, relationship problems, to problems with job and finances,” said Keller. “We believe the only answer to the problems we face is a personal relationship with Christ. While that doesn’t make us immune to life’s problems, it provides a foundation from which we can successfully deal with every crisis and situation we face.”
With the help of a team of 700 retired pastors, LivePrayer.com personally responds to an amazing 40,000 daily requests for prayer. Since its launch approximately 110,000 people have made commitments to Christ, and an amazing 1.8 million “praise reports” have come in to LivePrayer.com for prayers answered.
In addition to LivePrayer.com, Keller sends out a daily devotional to 2.1 million e-mail subscribers. And his Live Prayer with Bill Keller television program is seen by an estimated quarter-million viewers each night. The late-night show is slated to go national later this year.
“We think LivePrayer.com may just be the next ‘Big Thing’ in mass media faith-based outreach,” said Susan Zahn, founder and president of WDC Media, the PR firm representing LivePrayer. “Bill Keller understands that the Internet is framing up to be the dominant form of electronic media in our culture, and he is using it to reach the millions of hurting people who would never darken the door of a church. I really believe this outreach has only touched the ‘tip of the spiritual iceberg’ that exists in America. Once LivePrayer.com goes national, we think Keller’s mass appeal will match Dr. Phil’s.”
Added Zahn, “A Dr. Phil on a divine mission, that is.”
