POEM: "Lord, Teach Us How to Pray Aright" by James Montgomery

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Isaiah 38:5 which reads: "Go, and say to Hezekiah, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years."

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from George Muller. He said, "I have joyfully dedicated my whole life to the object of exemplifying how much may be accomplished by prayer and faith.”

My personal encouragement for you today is this: Many people do not like to pray because prayer to God will convict you to get sin out of your life. In order to effectively get through to God in prayer, we must be willing to confess and repent of our sins and allow God to create within us a clean heart so that He will not only hear us but answer us.

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

Prayer governs conduct and conduct makes character. Conduct, is what we do; character, is what we are. Conduct is the outward life. Character is the life unseen, hidden within, yet evidenced by that which is seen. Conduct is external, seen from without; character is internal -- operating within. In the economy of grace conduct is the offspring of character. Character is the state of the heart, conduct its outward expression. Character is the root of the tree, conduct, the fruit it bears.

Prayer is related to all the gifts of grace. To character and conduct its relation is that of a helper. Prayer helps to establish character and fashion conduct, and both for their successful continuance depend on prayer....
