Our prayer motivator verse for today is Luke 22:41 which reads: "And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed."
 
Our prayer motivator quote for today is from William Carey. He said, "Prayer—secret, fervent, believing prayer—lies at the root of all personal godliness."
 
Our prayer motivator devotional for today is that prayer takes time from J. Gordon Henry. Dr. Henry said:
 
INVESTING THE NEEDED TIME TO PRAY EFFECTIVELY IS A NECESSITY
 
There are three background areas that need a word. We will deal with the first one now. First, prayer takes time. During the past few days, I have been impressed with the necessity of investing the needed time to pray effectively. Somehow it is imperative that we understand that we will never be effective prayer warriors when we spend ten minutes in prayer and three hours watching a baseball game on the television. Unless there is willingness to set aside quality time for intercession, we will most likely make little difference as a prayer warrior. While it is true that everyone has as much time as anyone else, one of the subtle tactics of Satan is to assure us that we are too busy to spend much time in prayer. The amount of time we allow for prayer is an index of the real importance we attach to it. Some of us have become so engrossed on majoring on the minors that there is little time left for really important matters.
