Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Philippians 4:6 which reads:

"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Martin Wells Knapp. He said: "Workers that are strangers to knee work may work up a temporary excitement, but never will be able to secure the copious outpourings of genuine revival power."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 17 of our series titled "HINDRANCES TO PRAYER" from Dr. John R. Rice.

Many of us cannot get our prayers heard because already the cry of others whom we have wronged has been heard by God. Cain tried to talk to God, but the blood of his slain brother, Abel, had cried out of the ground to God against Cain. Pharaoh in Egypt made fair promises, but already he was marked for destruction, and God brought along one crisis after another that forced Pharaoh to choose, knowing that Pharaoh would harden his heart and die under the wrath of God. The reason was that God had heard the groanings and the cries of the oppressed multitudes of the Israelites; of mothers whose babies were murdered; of toiling laborers who had to make brick without straw. Doubtlessly, God never could hear Hitler pray; for ringing in the ears of God were the groans and pleadings of the martyred dead, the slaughtered Poles, the murdered Jews, the betrayed French, the starved Greeks, and the downtrodden millions of poor and oppressed in all of Europe!

Do you, dear Christian, believe that God will hear you pray when there are wrongs against others that you have not made right?
