POEM: "Prayer Answered by Crosses" by John Newton

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Psalm 102:17 which reads: "He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer."

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from Leonard Ravenhill. He said, "Let the fires go out in the boiler room of the church and the place will still look smart and clean, but it will be cold. The Prayer Room is the boiler room for its spiritual life.”

My personal encouragement for you today is this: You may ask me, Why do I need to pray more? My friend, isn’t it strange how that when God pours out His blessings upon us, instead of our getting more on fire for the Lord, we get cooler and cooler? And so, therefore, even with God’s blessings, you need to pray more. You need to understand that you don’t have the power to manage your life successfully. You need God’s direction, you need God’s power; you need His leadership in your life. No matter how much Bible you know, no matter how many Bible schools you have attended, you had better open your mouth and pray to God.  

Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled "PRAYER AND DESIRE” part 1 from the book, "Necessity of Prayer" by E.M. Bounds. 

DESIRE is not merely a simple wish; it is a deep seated craving; an intense longing, for attainment. In the realm of spiritual affairs, it is an important adjunct to prayer. So important is it, that one might say, almost, that desire is an absolute essential of prayer. Desire precedes prayer, accompanies it, is followed by it.
