TODAY'S POEM: "Dear Lord, We Pray" by Mary Willcox

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Job 8:5-7 which reads: "If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty; If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous. Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase." 

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from Robert E. Woods. He said: "We don't thank God enough for much that He has given us. Our prayers are too often the beggar's prayer, the prayer that asks for something. We offer too few prayers of thanksgiving and of praise." 

My personal encouragement for you today is this: Prayer is the only discipline of the Christian faith that we are told to do “without ceasing” in I Thessalonians 5:17. Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, esteemed this matter of prayer very highly. Allow me to remind you that on one occasion Jesus got up a great while before day and prayed. Mark 1:35 states, “And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.” If Jesus Christ had to pray so earnestly, there is no doubt that we, His followers, ought to pray as well. 

Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled "THE HINDRANCES TO TRUE PRAYER" part 7 from the book, "Purpose in Prayer" by E.M. Bounds.
