Our prayer motivator verse for today is Matthew 7:7 which reads: "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."

Our prayer motivator quote today is from William Wilberforce. He said: "Of all things, guard against neglecting God in the secret place of prayer."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 12 of our series titled "THE SIN OF PRAYERLESSNESS" from Dr. John R. Rice.

We do well to remember that "the whole armor of God" which we are commanded to put on "that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil," and again, "that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day," includes "praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints". Prayer defeats Satan. By prayer one may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil and to withstand in the evil day.

A Christian who was enslaved by the tobacco habit said to me, "I can go about a half a day at a time, and then I just have to have a cigarette." He told me how he prayed every day about the matter and for hours would seem to have the victory, but before the day was gone he would again fall into temptation and sin. I showed him that he had been given the victory by prayer for a little time, and that what he needed to do for continued victory was to pray more. He promised to pray every half hour if need be, to take time out from his work and go alone until he had victory and to continue that until permanent victory came. And thus he conquered the thing that had enslaved him.
