I just ran out of CO2 while checking how much beer I have left in one of my kegs. I was not able to apply pressure back to the keg before I ran out of CO2. I won't be able to replace the CO2 until tomorrow. Will the beer still be ok once I apply pressure to it tomorrow? About 24 hours unpressurized....

Keep it as cold as possible and when you get the CO2, purge the head space. By the way, if you pick up a baby scale at a swap meet, you can check your kegs by weight. Pints a pound, world round (plus or minus a jigger).
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
