Our prayer motivator verse for today is Psalm 65:2, which reads: “O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Jonathan Edwards. He said: "When God is about to bestow some great blessing on His church, it is often His manner, in the first place, so to order things in His providence as to show His church their great need of it, and to bring them into distress for want of it, and so put them upon crying earnestly to Him for it."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 28 of our series titled "HINDRANCES TO PRAYER" from Dr. John R. Rice.

Although the Lord has forgiven all of our sins, yet He still hates sin. God hates sin in David or in Peter or in Paul; God hates it in you, beloved Christian. And if your sin is not confessed and cleansed day by day, it piles up between you and God to hinder your communion, to block your prayers, to taint your testimony, and to grieve the blessed Holy Spirit. So the Lord teaches us here to come daily and confess our sins, asking forgiveness.

We should forgive others, Ephesians 4:32 tells us, because Christ has already forgiven us all of our sins in salvation so that they are not held against our souls' welfare. But here in Matthew 14-15 the Saviour warns us that we should forgive others that we as Christians may have the daily cleansing, the daily renewal of fellowship, the daily fullness of the Holy Spirit which God desires for all His dear children, but which He cannot give without a daily confession and forsaking of sin.
