Our prayer motivator verse for today is Proverbs 15:29 which reads: "The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous."

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Eben Alexander. He said: "Communicating with God is the most extraordinary experience imaginable, yet at the same time it's the most natural one of all, because God is present in us at all times. Omniscient, omnipotent, personal-and loving us without conditions. We are connected as One through our divine link with God."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 38 of our series titled "HINDRANCES TO PRAYER" from Dr. John R. Rice.

I well know that the issue of tithes and offerings was first addressed to the Jews. I have heard long arguments that the tithe was commanded only for Jews. But that proportionate giving is as clearly commanded in the New Testament as in the Old. Abraham, the tither, the man of faith, is held up as an example to the New Testament Christians in this matter. And the New Testament examples who are greatly praised went far beyond the tithe, as we see in the case of the woman who put in two mites, in the case of the saints at Jerusalem after Pentecost, and the churches of Macedonia. Besides, the promises given in the Old Testament about liberality have been abundantly proved true by literally thousands of New Testament Christians. I know that it pays in dollars and cents to bring God the tithes and offerings. And I have proved God, and He has opened the windows of Heaven as He promised.
