TODAY'S POEM: "Hear and Answer Prayer" by Fanny Crosby

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Job 33:26 which reads: "He shall pray unto God, and he will be favourable unto him: and he shall see his face with joy: for he will render unto man his righteousness."

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from J. Gordon Henry. He said: "Praying for the lost is a very important need in intercession. Our intercession frees God to do some things He would not otherwise do; God has chosen to involve us in His plan and has chosen to limit Himself to our praying. What an awesome thought! With confidence we can pray for the lost because saving the lost is His will." 

My personal encouragement for you today is this: Here are 4 more ways to pray for other people:  1. Ask that the person become an effective prayer warrior in their own right. 2. Ask that God’s hand be upon him in physical and material things. 3. Ask that the person learn to praise the Lord. 4. Ask that the person begin to reach out to the unsaved. 

Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled "THE HINDRANCES TO TRUE PRAYER" part 13 from the book, "Purpose in Prayer" by E.M. Bounds.

Prayerless praying has no heart in its praying. The lack of heart deprives praying of its reality, and makes it an empty and unfit vessel. Heart, soul, life must be in our praying; the heavens must feel the force of our crying, and must be brought into oppressed sympathy for our bitter and needy state, A need that oppresses us, and has no relief but in our crying to God, must voice our praying.

Prayerless praying is insincere. It has no honesty at heart. We name in words what we do not want in heart. Our prayers give formal utterance to the things for which our hearts are not only not hungry, but for which they really have no taste...
