Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Matthew 26:41 which reads: "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

Our prayer motivator quote today is from J.C. Ryle. He said: "Praying and sinning will never live together in the same heart. Prayer will consume sin, or sin will choke prayer."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 25 of our series titled "HINDRANCES TO PRAYER" from Dr. John R. Rice.

Your hot words may have cut some dear one to the heart, yet you have never confessed and asked forgiveness for that sin. You may have slandered some man of God, some innocent girl, or some thoughtless neighbor. I beg you, go be reconciled! Confess your wrong and earnestly try to make it right.

Someone hears me who has a mother or father far away. They long to hear from you. You have your own home, your own business, your own interests. They have now only memories of the past. How can God bless you who neglect heart-broken parents and cause grief to those who gave everything for you?

Dear Christian, many times I have had to write letters asking forgiveness, or write a check to pay an honest debt before I could have assurance that God would hear my prayers. Are your prayers hindered because there are those you have wronged with sins that you have never tried to undo? Then the Saviour said, "If thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.."
