POEM: "Arise, My Soul, Arise" by Charles Wesley 

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Psalm 122:6 which reads: "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee." 

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from The Kneeling Christian. He said, "Prayer meets with obstacles, which must be prayed away. That is what men mean when they talk about praying through.” 

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 "PRAYER AND DESIRE” part 6 from the book, "Necessity of Prayer" by E.M. Bounds. 

"Lord, I cannot let Thee go, Till a blessing Thou bestow; Do not turn away Thy face; Mine's an urgent, pressing case." 

The secret of faint heartedness, lack of importunity, want of courage and strength in prayer, lies in the weakness of spiritual desire, while the non-observance of prayer is the fearful token of that desire having ceased to live. That soul has turned from God whose desire after Him no longer presses it to the inner chamber. There can be no successful praying without consuming desire. Of course there can be much seeming to pray, without desire of any kind.
