True Confession Must Take Place Before Importunate Prayer, Part 3 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #148)

Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #148

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Psalm 65:2 which reads: “O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is a short story about George Mueller. It goes like this: “One day George Mueller began praying for five of his friends. After many months, one of them came to the Lord. Ten years later, two others were converted. It took 25 years before the fourth man was saved. Mueller persevered in prayer until his death for the fifth friend, and throughout those 52 years he never gave up hoping that he would accept Christ! His faith was rewarded, for soon after Mueller’s funeral the last one was saved.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part two of our current series entitled True Confession Must Take Place Before Importunate Prayer from Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Rice said…

One of you who is listening right now is a wife, and God gave you a husband. He is dearer to you than life itself, dearer than any earthly friend could be. God sent him your way. God depends upon you to give him the bread of life. If you do not do your part, if you have not the power to win him, then surely his case may be well-nigh hopeless.

I know wives who have lived with husbands for 30 years and never won them to Christ. I know brothers who have grown up with brothers; they have worked together and played together. Oftentimes, they have been nearly inseparable.
