Hindrances to Prayer, Part 30 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #441)

SCRIPTURE: Mark 1:35, "And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he [Jesus] went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed."

PERSONAL ENCOURAGEMENT: I believe it is a crime for husbands to leave home each morning and not pray with your family. Why? Because as far as I am concerned, you leave your family unprotected against the attacks of the devil. I thank God for good Godly women. But I have found out that many Christian women will not pray as much as they should if that man is not leading in prayer. Why? Because God has put something in that woman to really want to follow her husband. The Christ in her wants to follow her husband. And so, husbands, you have to lead in the spiritual discipline of prayer. Husbands, you not only have to pray for your family, you also have to pray with your family. Wives, you need to pray for your husband and you both must pray with and for your children.

QUOTE: Author Unknown, "There are three degrees in prayer. The lowest is that spoken only by the lips. The next is when, by a resolute effort, we succeed in fixing our thoughts on Divine things. The third is when the soul finds it hard to turn away from God."
