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:

Jesus was long alone with God: He continued all night in prayer. We think one half hour a great deal to spend in the duties of the closet; but Christ continued a whole night in meditation and secret prayer. We have a great deal of business at the throne of grace, and we should take a great delight in communion with God, and by both these we may be kept sometimes long at prayer. In his family we have him nominating his immediate attendants, that should be the constant auditors of his doctrine and eye-witnesses of his miracles, that hereafter they might be sent forth as apostles, his messengers to the world, to preach his gospel to it, and plant his church in it. After he had continued all night in prayer, one would have thought that, when it was day, he should have reposed himself, and got some sleep. No, as soon as any body was stirring, he called unto him his disciples. In serving God, our great care should be, not to lose time, but to make the end of one good duty the beginning of another. Ministers are to be ordained with prayer more than ordinarily solemn.

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Herbert Lockyer. He said: "The mightiest prayers are often those drenched with the Word of God."

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