Hindrances to Prayer, Part 19 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #430)

SCRIPTURE: Philippians 4:6, "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."

PERSONAL ENCOURAGEMENT: 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 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.

QUOTE: Richard Sibbes, "When we go to God by prayer, the devil knows we go to fetch strength against him, and therefore he opposeth us all he can."
