Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is John 14:13-14 which reads: "And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it." 

Our prayer motivator quote today is from E.M. Bounds. He said: "Prayer is the greatest of all forces, because it honors God and brings him into active aid." 

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 2 of our series titled "ENCOURAGEMENT TO PRAY FOR YOUR HEALING AND FOR THE HEALING OF OTHERS" from Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Rice said... 

In James 5:13 we are given the plain instruction, "Is any among you afflicted? let him pray." Or the Revised Version puts it, "Is any among you suffering? let him pray." So people are to pray for themselves when they suffer. And then verses 14 and 15 continue, "Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him...And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up." 

Clearly, sickness should be an occasion for prayer. We are commanded to pray when we suffer ourselves, and the elders of the church are to be called officially, too, to pray for the sick. Then in James 5:16 we are told, "Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed." 

Though the sick may pray for themselves, it is proper for the elders of the church to pray also, and individual Christians are to confess their sins one to the other and to pray one for the other, in order that they may be healed.
