The Power of Importunity or “Praying Through” for Others and Yourself, Part 1 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #150)

Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #150

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Proverbs 15:8 which reads: “The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from M. E. Andross. He said: “If the Christian does not allow prayer to drive sin out of his life, sin will drive prayer out of his life. Like light and darkness, the two cannot dwell together.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is the part one of a new series entitled How to Engage in Persistent Prayer for Sinners from Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Rice said…

Let us read together Luke 11:5-8: “And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him? And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.”

In the parable which Jesus gave us, teaching us to pray, the man came to his friend at midnight to beg of him, “Friend, lend me three loaves.” It was at midnight. That would seem to indicate unusual urgency.
