Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Luke 6:12 which reads: "And it came to pass in those days, that he [Jesus] went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God."

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

In these verses, we have our Lord Jesus in secret, in his family, and in public; and in all three acting like himself. In secret we have him praying to God. The evangelist takes frequent notice of Christ’s retirements, to give us an example of secret prayer, by which we must keep up our communion with God daily, and without which it is impossible that the soul should prosper. In those days, when his enemies were filled with madness against him, and were contriving what to do to him, he went out to pray; that he might answer the type of David, "For my love, they are my adversaries; but I give myself unto prayer." Observe that He was alone with God; he went out into a mountain, to pray, where he might have no disturbance or interruption given him; we are never less alone than when we are thus alone. Whether there was any convenient place built upon this mountain, for devout people to retire to for their private devotions, as some think, and that that oratory, or place of prayer, to me seems very uncertain. He went into a mountain for privacy, and therefore, probably, would not go to a place frequented by others.

We will discuss this verse further in tomorrow's broadcast.

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Thomas Watson. He said: "God will fill the hungry because He Himself has stirred up the hunger. As in the case of prayer, when God prepares the heart to pray, He prepares His ear to hear. So in the case of spiritual hunger, when God prepares the heart to hunger, He will prepare His hand to fill."
