The Power of the Lord’s Prayer, Part 1 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #142)

Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #142

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Psalm 5:3 which reads: “My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Martin Luther. He said, “If I fail to spend two hours in prayer each morning, the devil gets the victory through the day. I have so much business I cannot get on without spending three hours daily in prayer.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled THE POWER OF “THE LORD’S PRAYER” from Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Rice said…

Jesus then gave His disciples the model prayer, which multitudes simply call “the Lord’s prayer”. Do not quibble about the name. The Lord Jesus gave it as a model for prayer. Let us learn to pray as Jesus here taught His disciples to pray: “And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.”

This prayer is simple and universal in its usefulness. Every Christian – from the most ignorant child to the most profound scholar – can approach God, saying, “Our Father which art in heaven.” And every one should approach reverently, “Hallowed be thy name.”
