Hindrances to Prayer, Part 25 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #436)

SCRIPTURE: Matthew 26:41, "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

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 leadership 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: J.C. Ryle, "Praying and sinning will never live together in the same heart. Prayer will consume sin, or sin will choke prayer."
