Bryce Petty said: "A mentor of mine dared me to take prayer a step further—or several steps further—and literally pray before each snap. My pre-snap prayer doesn’t have to be long or drawn out—just a simple, 'All right, God, here we go.' And a remarkable thing has happened. Praying before each snap has given me more peace and comfort than I ever thought was possible amongst so much action and chaos. It helps me keep perspective. Jesus just wants us to want Him in our lives, especially when we feel like our backs are against the wall. He wants to be there to share in our successes and—perhaps even more so—in our failures." 

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Nehemiah 4:7-9 which reads: "But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very wroth, And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it. Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them." 

Our prayer motivator quote today is from E.M. Bounds. He said: "Long, discursive, dry, and inane are the prayers in many pulpits. Without unction or heart, they fall like a killing frost on all the graces of worship. Death-dealing prayers they are. Every vestige of devotion has perished under their breath. The deader they are the longer they grow."
