Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Psalm 86:7 which reads: "In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me."

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

David was in a special manner earnest with God in prayer when he was in affliction (v. 7): "In the day of my trouble, whatever others do, I will call upon thee, and commit my case to thee, for thou wilt hear and answer me, and I shall not seek in vain, as those did who cried, O Baal! hear us; but there was no voice, nor any that regarded,’’ (1 Ki. 18:29) ...It is thus our duty to pray always, without ceasing, and to continue instant in prayer; and then we may hope to have our prayers heard which we make in the time of trouble, if we have made conscience of the duty at other times, at all times. It is comfortable if an affliction finds the wheels of prayer a-going, and that they are not then to be set a-going.

Our prayer motivator quote today is from D.A. Carson. He said: "We don’t drift into spiritual life; we do not drift into disciplined prayer. We do not grow in prayer unless we plan to pray. That means we must set aside time to do nothing but pray. What we actually do reflects our highest priorities. That means that we can proclaim our commitment to prayer until the cows come home, but unless we actually pray, our actions disown our words."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 9 of our series titled "HOW TO EXERCISE YOUR FAITH AND GROW GREATER FAITH IN GOD" from Dr. John R. Rice.
