Adrian Rogers said, “Prayer is our greatest Christian privilege and our greatest Christian failure.”

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Psalm 4:1 which reads: “Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Leonard Ravenhill. He said, “But have we Holy Ghost power – power that restricts the devil’s power, pulls down strongholds and obtains promises? Daring delinquents will be damned if they are not delivered from the devil’s dominion. What has hell to fear other than a God-anointed, prayer-powered church?”

Philip James Bailey said, “Prayer is the spirit speaking truth to Truth.”

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Matthew 6:9-13 which reads: “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from an Unknown Author. He said, “You can never lose at prayer. Prayer is the hard, grueling, military-style training needed to win the war of life. Without prayer, you have not the basic weaponry to fight, much less to win.”

Charles L. Allen said, “I am one who believes that with God nothing is hopeless – that all things are possible through prayer.”

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Romans 8:15 which reads: “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Russel H. Conwell. He said, “When a man has done all he can do, still there is a mighty, mysterious agency over which he needs influence to secure success. The one way he can reach it is by prayer.”

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Matthew 7:7 which reads: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”

Allow me to share with you some important points regarding this verse from Matthew Henry’s Commentary:

Now here, the promise is made, and made so as exactly to answer the precept. “Ask, and it shall be given you;” not lent you, not sold you, but given you; and what is more free than a gift? Whatever you pray for, according to the promise, whatever you ask, shall be given you, if God see it fit for you, and what would you have more? It is but ask and have; ye have not, because ye ask not, or ask not aright: what is not worth asking, is not worth having, and then it is worth nothing. “Seek, and ye shall find,” and then you do not lose your labour; God is himself found of those that seek him, and if we find him we have enough. “Knock, and it shall be opened;” the door of mercy and grace shall no longer be shut against you as enemies and intruders, but opened to you as friends and children. It will be asked, who is at the door? If you be able to say, a friend, and have the ticket of promise ready to produce in the hand of faith, doubt not of admission. If the door be not opened at the first knock, continue instant in prayer; it is an affront to a friend to knock at his door, and then go away; though he tarry, yet wait.

We will discuss this verse further in the next broadcast.

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Donald Whitney. He said: “Praying without ceasing means you never really stop conversing with God; you simply have frequent interruptions.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 4 of our series titled “JUST PRAY” from Dr. John R. Rice.

How well the Scripture says that unbelief is our besetting sin. We preachers and Bible teachers have grown into the habit of searching through the Bible trying to find other Scriptures to modify the great promises.

Some do that way about salvation. They say glibly that they believe in salvation by faith in Christ. But they add that you also have to be baptized, have to keep all the commandments, have to be faithful till death, even though you are saved by faith in the blood. But if it is of works, it is not of grace. If baptism is essential to salvation, then salvation is not wholly by the blood and is not received simply by faith. Thus do men wickedly search through the Bible to make it contradict itself and use one verse of Scripture to tear down another.

It is true that the Bible has many simple and varying statements about the plan of salvation. In John 1:12 it is receiving Christ. In John 6:37 it is coming to Christ. In Matthew 10:32 and in Romans 10:9-10 it is confessing Christ. In John 3:16 and many other passages the plan of salvation is stated as believing in Christ. But the context in every case shows that all these are simply different ways of saying that anybody in the world who comes trustingly to Christ will immediately be received, forgiven and saved.

These different promises do not give different ways of salvation. They do not even give different steps in the same way to salvation. Salvation is not obtained by long, detailed processes and meeting difficult requirements. Salvation is one simple step to Christ. And if some poor sinner does not understand one way of explaining it, then God gives another explanation to enlighten his poor, darkened mind. But any sinner can safely depend upon any single promise in the Word that offers salvation. When he honestly receives Christ, or honestly comes to Christ, or sincerely confesses Christ, or when he repents, or when he trusts — all the same thing — God receives him with open arms and for Christ’s sake forgives his sins…

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Matthew 7:7 which reads: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”

Allow me to share with you some important points regarding this verse from Matthew Henry’s Commentary:

When the dresser of the vineyard in Luke 13:7-8, asked for a year’s respite for the barren fig-tree, he added, I will dig about it. God gives knowledge and grace to those that search the scriptures, and wait at Wisdom’s gates; and power against sin to those that avoid the occasions of it. We must not only ask, but knock; we must come to God’s door, must ask importunately; not only pray, but plead and wrestle with God; we must seek diligently; we must continue knocking; must persevere in prayer, and in the use of means; must endure to the end in the duty. Here is a promised annexed: our labour in prayer, if indeed we do labour in it, shall not be in vain: where God finds a praying heart, he will be found a prayer-hearing God; he shall give thee an answer of peace. The precept is threefold, ask, seek, knock; there is precept upon precept; but the promise is sixfold, line upon line, for our encouragement; because a firm belief of the promise would make us cheerful and constant in our obedience.

We will discuss this verse further in the next broadcast.

Our prayer motivator quote today is from William Gurnall. He said: “Go to God by prayer for a key to unlock the mysteries of His Word. It is not the plodding but the praying soul, that will get this treasure of Scripture knowledge. God often brings a truth to the Christian’s hand as a return of prayer, which he had long hunted for in vain with much labour and study: “There is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets”; and where doth He reveal the secrets of His world but at the throne of grace?”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 3 of our series titled “JUST PRAY” from Dr. John R. Rice.

Asking is the same implication given in James 4:2: “Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.” It is not right to read into this verse what it does not say. It is not right to search through the Bible and try to find other Scriptures that will limit this verse and make it mean less than it says.

Hundreds of times I have read Matthew 7:7-8 and James 4:2 to congregations and have asked them if they believed that everyone who asked received, and that just by asking we can get things from God. In every single case where I gave people a chance to reply, some said, “Yes, that is true if we ask according to God’s will,” or “If we do not ask amiss,” or, “If we ask in faith.” When I pressed the matter, some have frankly said, “No, I do not believe it.”

Now that is practical infidelity. Any verse of the Bible may be believed. Any one is so perfectly stated that it means exactly what it says. And certainly these two passages expressly say that by asking (continual asking, if necessary) one can get things from God without limiting this promise by other conditions.
