TODAY’S POEM: “Dear Lord, We Pray” by Mary Willcox

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Job 22:27 which reads: “Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows.”

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from David A. Bednar. He said: “Prayer becomes more meaningful as we counsel with the Lord in all of our doings, as we express heartfelt gratitude, and as we pray for others.”

My personal encouragement for you today is this: Here are 4 more ways to pray for other people: 1. Ask that the person have the mind of Christ. 2. Ask that the person grow daily in Christ-like maturity. 3. Ask that the person put on the full armor of God. 4. Ask that the person be alert to Satan’s strategy.

“The two great evils—not asking, and asking in a wrong way. Perhaps the greater evil is wrong asking, for it has in it the show of duty done, of praying when there has been no praying—a deceit, a fraud, a sham. The times of the most praying are not really the times of the best praying. The Pharisees prayed much, but they were actuated by vanity; their praying was the symbol of their hypocrisy by which they made God’s house of prayer a den of robbers. Theirs was praying on state occasions—mechanical, perfunctory, professional, beautiful in words, fragrant in sentiment, well ordered, well received by the ears that heard, but utterly devoid of every element of real prayer…”

TODAY’S POEM: “Peace Before Prayer” by Deborah Ann Belka

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Job 21:15 which reads: “What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?”

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from an Author Unknown. He said: “Prayer is a golden chain: one end tied to the tongue of man, the other to the ear of God.”

My personal encouragement for you today is this: Here are 4 ways to pray for other people: 1. Realize the person’s present exalted position in Christ. 2. Present the person as a living sacrifice. 3. Ask that the person be filled with the Holy Spirit. 4. Ask that God will guide the person to become regular and systematic in the study of God’s Word.

“Our religion breaks down oftenest and most sadly in our conduct. Beautiful theories are marred by ugly lives. The most difficult as well as the most impressive point in piety is to live it. Our praying suffers as much as our religion from bad living. Preachers were charged in primitive times to preach by their lives or preach not at all. So Christians everywhere ought to be charged to pray by their lives or pray not at all. Of course, the prayer of repentance is acceptable. But repentance means to quit doing wrong and learn to do well. A repentance which does not produce a change in conduct is a sham. Praying which does not result in pure conduct is a delusion. We have missed the whole office and virtue of praying if it does not rectify conduct. It is in the very nature of things that we must quit praying or quit bad conduct. Cold, dead praying may exist with bad conduct, but cold, dead praying is no praying in God’s esteem. Our praying advances in power as it rectifies the life. A life growing in its purity and devotion will be a more prayerful life.”

Robert Speer said, “The evangelization of the world in this generation depends first of all upon a revival of prayer.”

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Matthew 6:6 which reads: “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from an Unknown Author. He said, “Prayer and missions are as inseparable as faith and works, because it is by prayer that the laborers must be provided. ‘Pray ye …therefore the Lord of the harvest that He send forth laborers into His harvest.’ We think of laborers too often as being just those who have gone out on the fields. Those of us who pray are laborers too, and such laborers are also needed.”

TODAY’S POEM: “Today Thy Mercy Calls Me” by Oswald Allen

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Job 16:16-17 which reads: “My face is foul with weeping, and on my eyelids is the shadow of death; Not for any injustice in mine hands: also my prayer is pure.”

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from W. Sheffler. He said: “When we are on our knees, then light flashes; then the intellect is clarified; then the conscience is aroused; then the spiritual sensibilities are quickened; and we can learn more of our duty and of His will than in hours of argumentation.”

My personal encouragement for you today is this: You need to let your children see you pray. Your children need to see you pray through the good times and the bad times. They need to see you pray constantly. They need to see you pray without ceasing. Not only should your children see you pray, let them hear you pray. In other words, pray out loud. Let them hear you call out their names in prayer. Pray for them and with them. Yes, indeed, men, women, boys, and girls ought to pray because we need God in our lives to help us do what He wants done in the world.

Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled “THE HINDRANCES TO TRUE PRAYER” part 9 from the book, “Purpose in Prayer” by E.M. Bounds.

“Our lives not only give colour to our praying, but they give body to it as well. Bad living makes bad praying. We pray feebly because we live feebly. The stream of praying cannot rise higher than the fountain of living. the closet force is made up of the energy which flows from the confluent streams of living. The feebleness of living throws its faintness into closet homes. We cannot talk to God strongly when we have not lived for God strongly. The closet cannot be made holy to God when the life has not been holy to God. The Word of God emphasises our conduct as giving value to our praying. ‘Then shalt thou call and the Lord shalt answer, Thou shalt cry and He shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth the finger, and speaking vanity.'”
