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.

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.”

Persistence in Prayer, Part 8 (TPMD Bus 2 – #587)

TODAY’S POEM: “Mama Rocked and Prayed” by Margaret Cagle

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is II Kings 6:17 which reads: “And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from J.C. Ryle. He said, “Praying and sinning will never live together in the same heart. Prayer will consume sin, or sin will choke prayer.”

My personal encouragement for you today is this: No matter how long it takes to pray, no matter how difficult it is to pray, praying to God is the most important thing you can do in your day. It should be the #1 priority above everything else you have to do.

Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled “PERSISTENCE IN PRAYER” part 7 from the book, “Purpose in Prayer” by E.M. Bounds.

There is not the least doubt that much of our praying fails for lack of persistency. It is without the fire and strength of perseverance. Persistence is of the essence of true praying. It may not be always called into exercise, but it must be there as the reserve force. Jesus taught that perseverance is the essential element of prayer. Men must be in earnest when they kneel at God’s footstool.

Too often we get faint-hearted and quit praying at the point where we ought to begin. We let go at the very point where we should hold on strongest. Our prayers are weak because they are not impassioned by an unfailing and resistless will.

God loves the importunate pleader, and sends him answers that would never have been granted but for the persistency that refuses to let go until the petition craved for is granted.

Karen Witemeyer: “If you want to protect me, prayer is just as powerful a weapon as that gun you carry.” (The Prayer Motivator Minute #525)

Karen Witemeyer said, “If you want to protect me, prayer is just as powerful a weapon as that gun you carry.”

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is John 14:13-14 which reads: “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Ralph Waldo Emerson. He said, “The wise man in the storm prays to God not for safety from danger but for deliverance from fear.”

Persistence in Prayer, Part 7 (TPMD Bus 2 – #586)

TODAY’S POEM: “Lord, Teach Us How to Pray Aright” by James Montgomery

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is II Kings 6:17 which reads: “And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Andrew Murray. He said, “Answered prayer is the interchange of love between the Father and His child.”

My personal encouragement for you today is this: God wants to hear from you every day and throughout the day. That is why He commanded us in His Word to “pray without ceasing.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled “PERSISTENCE IN PRAYER” part 6 from the book, “Purpose in Prayer” by E.M. Bounds.

“Whether we like it or not,” said Mr. Spurgeon, “asking is the rule of the kingdom.” “Ask, and ye shall receive.” It is a rule that never will be altered in anybody’s case. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the. elder brother of the family, but God has not relaxed the rule for Him. Remember this text: Jehovah says to His own Son, “Ask of Me, and I will give Thee the heaven for Thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for Thy possession.” If the Royal and Divine Son of God cannot be exempted from the rule of asking that He may have, you and I cannot expect the rule to be relaxed in our favour. Why should it be? What reason can be pleaded why we should be exempted from prayer? What argument can there be why we should be deprived of the privilege and delivered from the necessity of supplication? I can see none: can you? God will bless Elijah and send rain on Israel, but Elijah must pray for it. If the chosen nation is to prosper, Samuel must plead for it. If the Jews are to be delivered, Daniel must intercede. God will bless Paul, and the nations shall be converted through him, but Paul must pray. Pray he did without ceasing; his epistles show that he expected nothing except by asking for it. If you may have everything by asking, and nothing without asking, I beg you to see how absolutely vital prayer is, and I beseech you to abound in it.”

E.M. Bounds: “To graduate in the school of prayer is to master the whole course of a religious life.” (The Prayer Motivator Minute #524)

E.M. Bounds said, “To graduate in the school of prayer is to master the whole course of a religious life.”

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Matthew 6:9-13 which reads: “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from David Brainerd. He said, “It is good, I find, to persevere in attempts to pray. If I cannot pray with perseverance or continue long in my address to the Divine Being, I have found that the more I do in secret prayer the more I have delight to do, and have enjoyed more of the spirit of prayer; and frequently I have found the contrary, when by journeying or otherwise, I have been deprived of retirement.”
