Welcome to ‘The Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast’ with Daniel Whyte III

A short show to inspire, encourage, and motivate you to pray so you can live your best life NOW. Based on The Prayer Motivator book by Daniel Whyte III.

The main purpose of this simple broadcast is to motivate and encourage you to just pray. If you just start praying, all sorts of wonderful things will begin to happen for you, your family, and whatever God has called you to do. We do not pray based upon our subjective feelings; we pray based upon objective facts found in the Word of God.

Thomas Goodwin: “Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayer and worn with thanks.” (The Prayer Motivator Minute #529)

Thomas Goodwin said, “Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayer and worn with thanks.”

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Matthew 26:41 which reads: “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones. He said, “Prayer is beyond any question the highest activity of the human soul. Man is at his greatest and highest when upon his knees he comes face to face with God.”

Pray Always, Part 3 (TPMD Bus 2 – #590)

TODAY’S POEM: “This I Pray” by Timothy Jon Barrett.

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is II Kings 19:1-4 which reads: “And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the Lord. And he sent Eliakim, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz. And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy; for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth. It may be the Lord thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the Lord thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Leonard Ravenhill. He said, “No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here [in prayer], we fail everywhere.”

My personal encouragement for you today is this: Here are three more benefits that I have personally received from prayer to God, and that I know you can receive as well. (1) Prayer to God will give you peace and joy even though you don’t deserve it. (2) Prayer to God can supply your needs. And (3) Prayer to God can lift burdens, worries, fears, and cares.

Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled “PRAY ALWAYS” part 3 from the book, “Purpose in Prayer” by E.M. Bounds.

George Muller also combined Bible study with prayer in the quiet morning hours. At one time his practice was to give himself to prayer, after having dressed, in the morning. Then his plan underwent a change. As he himself put it: “I saw the most important thing I had to do was to give myself to the reading of the Word of God, and to meditation on it, that thus my heart might be comforted, encouraged, warned, reproved, instructed; and that thus, by means of the Word of God, whilst meditating on it, my heart might be brought into experimental communion with the Lord. I began, therefore, to meditate on the New Testament early in the morning. The first thing I did, after having asked in a few words for the Lord’s blessing upon his precious Word, was to begin to meditate on the Word of God, searching as it were, into every verse to get blessing out of it; not for the sake of the public ministry of the Word, not for the sake of preaching on what I had meditated on, but for the sake of obtaining food for my own soul. The result I have found to be almost invariably thus, that after a very few minutes my soul has been led to confession, or to thanksgiving, or to intercession, or to supplication; so that, though I did not, as it were, give myself to prayer, but to meditation, yet it turned almost immediately more or less into prayer.”

The study of the Word and prayer go together, and where we find the one truly practised, the other is sure to be seen in close alliance.

But we do not pray always. That is the trouble with so many of us. We need to pray much more than we do and much longer than we do.

Tim Keller: “Sometimes you don’t get the strength out of prayer that you want. But you won’t get any strength at all without prayer.” (The Prayer Motivator Minute #528)

Tim Keller said, “Sometimes you don’t get the strength out of prayer that you want. But you won’t get any strength at all without prayer.”

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Psalm 69:13 which reads: “But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O Lord, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Matthew Hagee. He said, “Effective prayer is exciting prayer. James 5:16 reads, ‘The effective fervent prayer of the righteousness avails much.’ The key here is that if there is effective prayer then there is efficient prayer. I believe that ineffective prayer is the number one reason why people don’t pray more. Have you ever heard someone say, ‘I tried praying, but it doesn’t work.’ The truth is that it does work. Prayer works every time when you do it properly. The Bible tells us in James 4:3, ‘You ask and don’t receive because you ask amiss.’ Praying effectively isn’t impossible; in fact, it is as simple as having a conversation with your best friend. But you need to know the Biblical basis for prayer before you effectively do it. When you pray ineffectively it leads to frustration and frustration leads to confusion, discouragement, and doubt. Once you have reached the point of doubt then your prayers are powerless.”

Pray Always, Part 2 (TPMD Bus 2 – #589)

TODAY’S POEM: “God in Heaven” by Daniella Whyte

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is II Kings 19:1-4 which reads: “And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the Lord. And he sent Eliakim, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz. And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy; for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth. It may be the Lord thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the Lord thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Oswald Sanders. He said, “The effective fervent prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. But Scripture and experience combine to teach that the united prayers of many righteous accomplish still more.”

My personal encouragement for you today is this: Here are three more benefits that I have personally received from prayer to God, and that I know you can receive as well. (1) Prayer to God will make money come to you when you need it most. (2) Prayer to God will make things happen for you, right in the nick of time. And (3) Prayer to God will give you a great night of sleep.

Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled “PRAY ALWAYS” part 2 from the book, “Purpose in Prayer” by E.M. Bounds.

Always does not mean that we are to neglect the ordinary duties of life; what it means is that the soul which has come into intimate contact with God in the silence of the prayer-chamber is never out of conscious touch with the Father, that the heart is always going out to Him in loving communion, and that the moment the mind is released from the task upon which it is engaged it returns as naturally to God as the bird does to its nest. What a beautiful conception of prayer we get if we regard it in this light, if we view it as a constant fellowship, an unbroken audience with the King. Prayer then loses every vestige of dread which it may once have possessed; we regard it no longer as a duty which must be performed, but rather as a privilege which is to be enjoyed, a rare delight that is always revealing some new beauty.

Thus, when we open our eyes in the morning, our thought instantly mounts heavenward. To many Christians the morning hours are the most precious portion of the day, because they provide the opportunity for the hallowed fellowship that gives the keynote to the day’s programme. And what better introduction can there be to the never-ceasing glory and wonder of a new day than to spend it alone with God? It is said that Mr. Moody, at a time when no other place was available, kept his morning watch in the coal-shed, pouring out his heart to God, and finding in his precious Bible a true “feast of fat things.”

John Ortberg Jr.: “The goal of prayer is to live all of my life and speak all of my words in the joyful awareness of the presence of God.” (The Prayer Motivator Minute #527)

John Ortberg Jr. said, “The goal of prayer is to live all of my life and speak all of my words in the joyful awareness of the presence of God.”

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Isaiah 58:9 which reads: “Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from William Wilberforce. He said, “I suspect I have been allotting habitually too little time to religious exercises as private devotion, religious meditation, and Scripture reading. Hence I am lean and cold and hard. God would perhaps prosper me more in spiritual things if I were to be more diligent in using the means of grace. I had better allot more time, say two hours or an hour and a half, to religious exercises daily, and try whether by so doing I cannot preserve a frame of spirit more habitually devotional, a more lively sense of unseen things, a warmer love to God, and a greater degree of hunger and thirst after righteousness, a heart less prone to be soiled with worldly cares, designs, passions, and apprehension and a real undissembled longing for heaven, its pleasures and its purity.”

Pray Always, Part 1 (TPMD Bus 2 – #588)

TODAY’S POEM: “From the World We Turn” by Fanny Crosby

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is II Kings 6:18 which reads: “And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Samuel Chadwick. He said, “Great grief prays with great earnestness. Prayer is not a collection of balanced phrases; it is the pouring out of the soul. What is love if it be not fiery? What are prayers if the heart be not ablaze? They are the battles of the soul. In them men wrestle with principalities and powers…The prayer that prevails is not the work of lips and fingertips. It is the cry of a broken heart and the travail of a stricken soul.”

My personal encouragement for you today is this: Here are three more benefits that I have personally received from prayer to God, and that I know you can receive as well. (1) Prayer to God can keep your teenagers on track. (2) Prayer to God will guide you at the many crossroads of life. And (3) Prayer to God will give you wisdom, knowledge, understanding, insight, and discernment, and having these wonderful gifts will save you a lot of trouble, money, and time.

Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled “PRAY ALWAYS” part 1 from the book, “Purpose in Prayer” by E.M. Bounds.

“Men ought always to pray, and not to faint.” The words are the words of our Lord, who not only ever sought to impress upon His followers the urgency and the importance of prayer, but set them an example which they alas have been far too slow to copy.

The always speaks for itself. Prayer is not a meaningless function or duty to be crowded into the busy or the weary ends of the day, and we are not obeying our Lord’s command when we content ourselves with a few minutes upon our knees in the morning rush or late at night when the faculties, tired with the tasks of the day, call out for rest. God is always within call, it is true; His ear is ever attentive to the cry of His child, but we can never get to know Him if we use the vehicle of prayer as we use the telephone—for a few words of hurried conversation. Intimacy requires development. We can never know God as it is our privilege to know Him, by brief and fragmentary and unconsidered repetitions of intercessions that are requests for personal favours and nothing more. That is not the way in which we can come into communication with heaven’s King. “The goal of prayer is the ear of God,” a goal that can only be reached by patient and continued and continuous waiting upon Him, pouring out our heart to Him and permitting Him to speak to us. Only by so doing can we expect to know Him, and as we come to know Him better we shall spend more time in His presence and find that presence a constant and ever-increasing delight.

Steve Brown said, “Not being changed by prayer is sort of like standing in the middle of a spring rain without getting wet…” (The Prayer Motivator Minute #526)

Steve Brown said, “Not being changed by prayer is sort of like standing in the middle of a spring rain without getting wet. It’s hard to stand in the center of God’s acceptance and love without getting it all over you. “

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Matthew 14:23 which reads: “And when he [Jesus] had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Charles F. Stanley. He said, “We can be tired, weary and emotionally distraught, but after spending time alone with God, we find that He injects into our bodies energy, power and strength.”
