Our prayer motivator passage for today is II Chronicles 33:10-13 which reads: "And the Lord spake to Manasseh, and to his people: but they would not hearken. Wherefore the Lord brought upon them the captains of the host of the king of Assyria, which took Manasseh among the thorns, and bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon. And when he was in affliction, he besought the Lord his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers, And prayed unto him: and he was intreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord he was God."

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Watchman Nee. He said: "Negligence in prayer withers the inner man. Nothing can be a substitute for it, not even Christian work. Many are so preoccupied with work that they allow little time for prayer. Hence they cannot cast out demons. Prayer enables us first inwardly to overcome the enemy and then outwardly to deal with him."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 25 of our series titled "THE SIN OF PRAYERLESSNESS" from Dr. John R. Rice.

The Bible does not teach that one who prays may live forever, without dying, but it certainly does teach that many die prematurely when they might live longer with great blessing if they had prayed.

Likewise, other people die because we do not pray. For example, God had planned to destroy the whole nation of Israel and make of Moses and his family a new nation; but Moses prayed and God forgave them and did not do "the evil which he thought to do unto his people."
