TODAY'S POEM: "Others" by Charles D. Meigs

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is 1 Chronicles 17:16-27.

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from D.A. Carson. He said: "We don’t drift into spiritual life; we do not drift into disciplined prayer. We do not grow in prayer unless we plan to pray. That means we must set aside time to do nothing but pray. What we actually do reflects our highest priorities. That means that we can proclaim our commitment to prayer until the cows come home, but unless we actually pray, our actions disown our words."

My personal encouragement for you today is this: Our world is changing in sometimes surprising and very destructive ways. Unless we, the people of God, stand together and form a firewall of intercessory prayer in our society, not only will God’s judgment destroy our country and our world, but our country and the world will begin to destroy itself from the inside out. 

Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled "THE POSSIBILITIES OF TRUE PRAYER" part 1 from the book, "Purpose in Prayer" by E.M. Bounds.

It may be said with emphasis that no lazy saint prays. Can there be a lazy saint? Can there be a prayerless saint? Does not slack praying cut short sainthood’s crown and kingdom? Can there be a cowardly soldier? Can there be a saintly hypocrite? Can there be virtuous vice? It is only when these possibilities are brought into being that we then can find a prayerless saint.

To go through the motion of praying is a dull business, though not a hard one. To say prayers in a decent, delicate way is not heavy work...
