The Prayer of Faith, Part 3 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #167)

Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #167

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is I Thessalonians 5:17 which reads: “Pray without ceasing.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Edward Payson. He said: “Prayer is the first thing, the second thing, the third thing necessary to a minister. Pray, then my dear brother; pray, pray, pray!”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 3 of our series titled “THE PRAYER OF FAITH” from Dr. John R. Rice.

Modern evangelists who have so-called “divine healing services” and say that it is always God’s will to heal the sick, often lay blame for their failures on those who come to be healed. A poor sick person comes to be prayed for, the evangelist announces that it is God’s will to heal this person and to restore him to perfect health, always, and then when this disappointed sick person is not healed, the evangelist takes no responsibility and says that the sick person simply didn’t have faith in God or that some other sin was in the way.

But note here that it is the faith of those who do the praying that settles the matter! The Bible says, “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up.”
