Our prayer motivator verse for today is Psalm 35:13 which reads: "But as for me, when they [my enemies] were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom."

My personal encouragement today is this: No matter how long it takes to pray, no matter how difficult it is to pray, praying to God is the most important thing you can do in your day. It should be the #1 priority above everything else you have to do.

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 29 of our series titled "THE SIN OF PRAYERLESSNESS" from Dr. John R. Rice.

In many, many cases when I have been used of God in a blessed revival campaign in some locality, one or two saintly Christians have told me, "I have been praying for two years that God would bring you here for these meetings," or, "This campaign is the answer to my daily prayer for years." Oh, if people would but pray, pray earnestly, pray effectively, pray with a holy abandon, God's work would not languish. The decay in the churches, the cooling of revival fires, the lukewarmness in the churches are the fruit of our prayerlessness.

Countless souls go to Hell because we do not pray. Nothing could more sharply show the wickedness of prayerlessness than this: If Christians do not pray as they ought, many whom they might win will go to Hell.
