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 Samuel M. Zwemer. He said: "Prayer is self-discipline. The effort to realize the presence and power of God stretches the sinews of the soul and hardens muscles. To pray is to grow in grace. To tarry in the presence of the King leads to new loyalty and devotion on the part of the faithful subjects. Christian character grows in the secret place of prayer."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 52 of our series titled "HINDRANCES TO PRAYER" from Dr. John R. Rice.

If you want to get along with God and keep sweet fellowship and have your prayers answered, then you must judge your sins. You must honestly confess your sins and take sides with God against them. There must be a wholehearted repentance, that is, the turning of the will away from all the things that grieve God. Otherwise your will is dead set against the will of God.

You cannot ask anything in the name of Christ, you cannot pray in the Spirit, you cannot pray according to the Word of God, your own conscience will not allow you to believe that God will bless you while you have set your own will up as an idol, or when some secret sin has your heart's devotion which ought to be given to God alone.
