Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Romans 8:26-28 which reads.

Our prayer motivator quote today is from C. H. Spurgeon. He said: "Shall I give you yet another reason why you should pray? I have preached my very heart out. I could not say any more than I have said. Will not your prayers accomplish that which my preaching fails to do? Is it not likely that the Church has been putting forth its preaching hand but not its praying hand? Oh dear friends! Let us agonize in prayer."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 14 of our series titled "HINDRANCES TO PRAYER" from Dr. John R. Rice.

The husband should feel himself as one with his wife, one flesh. Ephesians 5:29 says, "For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it." Ths husband is to love the wife as Christ loves the church and gave Himself for it.

And this general surrender to God's pattern for the place of the husband in the home is essential to the full, happy life of daily answered prayer. The slacker husband will find that his prayers are hindered.

Discord in the home grieves God. And if there be children who rebel against parents, let them know that such rebellion turns away the face of God and stops His ears and hinders their prayers.

If an old-time revival of Bible Christianity can be had in the homes, how blessed, how far-reaching will be the results! Heartfelt surrender to the will of God and obedience to His plan in the home is more important than any kind of public worship or any duties of citizenship. The hindrances to prayer are often in the relations of wives and husbands and of children and parents in the home.
