Our prayer motivator quote today is from Melvyn Faith. He said: "To make the most of your time, take time to PRAY."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 16 of our series titled "THE SIN OF PRAYERLESSNESS" from Dr. John R. Rice.

The best example of prayer that we should follow is Jesus Christ. Great multitudes came together to hear Him and to be healed. Luke 5:16 says, "And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed." In the next chapter in Luke 6:12 we are told, "And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God."

And most of us forget that when Jesus was on the Mount of Transfiguration, and was glorified before the disciples, He had gone there to pray, and "as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered," Luke 9:28-29 tells us. Most of us have forgotten that Jesus was praying when the disciples asked Him to teach them to pray and He gave the Lord's Prayer. It was Jesus' praying that led to the great confession by Peter that Jesus was "the Christ of God," as you see in Luke 9:18-21. When Jesus said to His Father in John 11:42, "I knew that thou hearest me always," He must have meant, too, that He prayed always.

God forgive us that we do not pray as Jesus prayed. Our prayerlessness shows how we ignore God's commands to pattern after Jesus.
