Our prayer motivator verse for today is Jonah 2:1 and 7 which reads: "Then Jonah prayed unto the LORD his God out of the fish's belly... When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple."

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Andrew Bonar. He said: "One of the gravest perils which besets the ministry is a restless scattering of energies over an amazing multiplicity of interests which leaves no margin of time and of strength for receptive and absorbing communion with God."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 57 of our series titled "HINDRANCES TO PRAYER" from Dr. John R. Rice.

A confession, in the sense that is meant in I John 1:9, would involve a simple faith that God is willing to forgive and cleanse us as He has promised. We are God's own dear children. We are dear to His heart. For us He gave His own Son. He has already given us everlasting life and promised to take us home to Heaven. We have never deserved His mercy, and we do not deserve it now; but He loves us still. And so a Christian can confess his sin, safe in the assurance that God has promised to forgive and cleanse, and God cannot lie. We are under a covenant relationship with Him. Our forgiveness is based on His faithfulness, not on our faithfulness.

So, any time a Christian is conscious of his sin, judges the sin and takes sides against it with a penitent heart, then he has a perfect right to trust the Lord for instant, complete forgiveness and for perfect cleansing.
