Our prayer motivator verse for today is Psalm 62:8 which reads: “Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah."

My personal encouragement to you today is this: You will never "find" time to pray, you must choose to "make" time to pray. The devil will try to keep you back from praying by bringing things to your mind that you may need to do but that can wait until later to be done. Don't let the devil talk you out of praying to God.

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Billy Graham. He said: "The most eloquent prayer is the prayer through hands that heal and bless. The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 17 of our series titled "THE SIN OF PRAYERLESSNESS" from Dr. John R. Rice.

In Bible times the Temple was literally "a house of prayer," and was intended to be that for all people. Bible Christians fasted, they prayed in sackcloth, they wept while they prayed, they often watched all night in prayer. Paul and Silas prayed at midnight in the jail at Philippi. A little group at the home of Mary prayed long hours until Peter was released from jail.

Before Pentecost the apostles and Mary and the brothers of Jesus and some others "continued with one accord in prayer and supplication," until the power of the Holy Spirit came upon them as promised. Later when the apostles called for some deacons to take over the business of waiting on poor widows they promised, "But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word" --- prayer first, preaching second!
