The Sin of Prayerlessness, Part 47 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #516)

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Matthew 7:7 which reads: "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."

My personal encouragement today is this: There is a special blessing that comes when you pray for other people. Make it a point to pray for your family members, your friends, your coworkers, your pastor, and your church. Prayer will make all the difference in these relationships.

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Dale Ralph Davis. He said: "Sometimes the Father may box us in, place us in a situation in which, one by one, all our secondary helps and supports are taken from us, in order that, defenseless, we may lean on His mercy alone - prayer. Once we see this, we will no longer regard prayer as a pious cop-out but as our only rational activity."

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 47 of our series titled "THE SIN OF PRAYERLESSNESS" from Dr. John R. Rice.

Fourth, leave off the formalities and let prayer be simply talking with God. Leave off the forms of set prayers and get accustomed to talking to God as simply as a little child talks to his mother or as a wife talks to her husband. Some people pray with all the stiffness and unreal formality of being introduced to the king and queen at court. When you pray, you will do well to leave off the powdered wigs, the knee breeches, the formal introductions, the curtsies, the bowing low, and the walking out backwards.
