Asking for the Power of the Holy Spirit, Part 1 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #156)

Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #156

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Zechariah 4:6 which reads: “Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from R.A. Torrey. He said: “We are too busy to pray, and so we are too busy to have power. We have a great deal of activity, but we accomplish little; many services but few conversions; much machinery but few results.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 1 of our current series titled “ASKING FOR POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT” from Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Rice said…

Luke 11:13 reads, “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?”

Strangely, Jesus did not put in exact words until the very close of this lesson on advanced praying, that He was teaching the disciples to pray for the Holy Spirit!

How many preachers and teachers hate the idea of praying for the Holy Spirit! They are willing to pray for revivals, pray for the conviction of sinners, pray for power on their preaching, pray for divine wisdom in their messages, yet they fear to pray for the Holy Spirit Himself, who really brings revivals, who convicts sinners and converts them, who gives wisdom, power and leadership to the man of God!
