Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Acts 6:1-4.

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Gordon M. Guinness. He said: "How terrible is the cost of robbing God of time for prayer. When we rob God of time for quiet, we are robbing Him of ourselves. It is only in the quiet that we can really know Him and know ourselves, and be sure that we give ourselves back to Him. Oh, for God's sake, do not risk keeping the windows of Heaven closed by robbing God of time."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 10 of our series titled "HINDRANCES TO PRAYER" from Dr. John R. Rice.

Many a Christian woman has wept as she told me how earnestly she prayed, how diligently she attended the house of God, how eagerly she did church work, and God seemed not to hear her prayers about an unsaved husband or son or daughter! It is a remarkable fact that in nearly every congregation of Christians are godly women, women who pray, who read their Bibles, who live lives more or less separated from worldliness in general, yet who cannot get their prayers answered for the conversion of their loved ones. "Why? Why?" the cry comes.

The answer is not found in the public church services. The answer is not found if you watch such good women singing in the choir, teaching in the Sunday school, attending Bible conferences, giving money to the poor. No, no! Our sins and hindered prayer are primarily home-sins. The sins of Christians which hinder their prayers and stop Heaven and shut the ears of God and grieve Him till He turns His dear face away from His own born-again children, are not most often the sins of the tavern, nor of the dance floor, nor of the theater. They are not the public sins so much as the private sins. They are not the sins in the church so much as in the homes!
