POEM: "The Manner of Prayer" by Deborah Smith Plemmons

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Isaiah 37:1-4 which reads: "And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the Lord. And he sent Eliakim, who was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests covered with sackcloth, unto Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz. And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and of blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth. It may be the Lord thy God will hear the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God, and will reprove the words which the Lord thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that is left."

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from Dillon Burroughs. He said, "Since God exists outside of time, He also has all of the time He needs to personally act in each of our lives. There is never a rush to the next meeting or the next message.”

My personal encouragement for you today is this: In this life, you will need to learn to pray when you feel like praying and pray even when you don’t. 

Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled "PRAYER AND IMPORTUNITY" part 10 from the book, "Necessity of Prayer" by E.M. Bounds.

Faith has its province, in connection with prayer, and, of course, has its inseparable association with importunity. But the latter quality drives the prayer to the believing point. A persistent spirit brings a man to the place where faith takes hold, claims and appropriates the blessing.
