Our prayer motivator verse for today is Psalm 145:18 which reads: "The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth." 

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Leonard Ravenhill. He said: "A man may study because his brain is hungry for knowledge, even Bible knowledge. But he prays because his soul is hungry for God." 


Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 37 of our series titled "HINDRANCES TO PRAYER" from Dr. John R. Rice.
Because of this sin of covetousness, the whole land of Israel was under a curse. God had withheld the rain. He had not heard their prayers. They were under a curse, and could not get the things they desired from God. And God gave them a challenge in Malachi 3:10-11:
"Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts."
The simple matter of forsaking covetousness and bringing the tithes and offerings which He had expressly commanded as a token of His ownership of everything would enable God to hear their prayers, to bless their crops, and to pour out such blessings as they would not even be able to receive it! The insect pests would be rebuked, the rain would come when needed, and it would be a happy land, God promised, if the people would prove God on this matter of tithes and offerings.
