Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Matthew 14:23 which reads: "And when he [Jesus] had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone"

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Ravi Zacharias. He said: "I think the reason we sometimes have the false sense that God is so far away is because that is where we have put him. We have kept him at a distance, and then when we are in need and call on him in prayer, we wonder where he is. He is exactly where we left him."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 23 of our series titled "HINDRANCES TO PRAYER" from Dr. John R. Rice.

When the jailer at Philippi washed the stripes of Paul and Silas, long welts and cuts made by the Roman cat-o'-nine-tails, or scourge, I can imagine that with tears running down his old face, marked perhaps by years of sin, he said to Paul, "Oh, I'm so sorry I stood there and laughed while they beat you. I helped to tear your clothes off you! I put you in the jail, in the innermost prison, and fastened your feet in the stocks, when you had never wronged me. I treated you like a common criminal. God forgive me! I want to make it right the best I can!"

And then a midnight meal was prepared for these two preachers, let out of jail in such strange circumstances. They had been put in the dungeon the night before without supper, and the jailer could not rest until he had made that right with a meal which showed his love.
