True Confession Must Take Place Before Importunate Prayer, Part 3 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #148)

MP3 Download Link: The Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #148

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Psalm 65:2 which reads: “O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is a short story about George Mueller. It goes like this: “One day George Mueller began praying for five of his friends. After many months, one of them came to the Lord. Ten years later, two others were converted. It took 25 years before the fourth man was saved. Mueller persevered in prayer until his death for the fifth friend, and throughout those 52 years he never gave up hoping that he would accept Christ! His faith was rewarded, for soon after Mueller’s funeral the last one was saved.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part two of our current series entitled True Confession Must Take Place Before Importunate Prayer from Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Rice said…

One of you who is listening right now is a wife, and God gave you a husband. He is dearer to you than life itself, dearer than any earthly friend could be. God sent him your way. God depends upon you to give him the bread of life. If you do not do your part, if you have not the power to win him, then surely his case may be well-nigh hopeless.

I know wives who have lived with husbands for 30 years and never won them to Christ. I know brothers who have grown up with brothers; they have worked together and played together. Oftentimes, they have been nearly inseparable. Yet the Christian brother has not been able to win his unsaved brother to Christ. I know fathers into whose hands and homes and hearts God has put little children. They love Daddy, follow after Daddy, imitate Daddy, almost worship Daddy. Yet I have seen such children grow up around their father and he never once had the bread of life for them.

I tell you, we cannot escape the responsibility of blood relationship, and the responsibility of intimate friendship and association.

If there is someone who is near and dear to you and is unsaved, then God expects you to take to them the bread of life. Even the rich man in Hell acknowledged his obligation to his five unsaved brothers. He knew that, following his example, they too would go to Hell unless they were warned, so he pled that one should be sent, even from Heaven to warn his five brothers that they should repent lest they come to the place of torment where he was already!

You cannot escape your responsibility, I say, to the friend, or wife, or husband, or son, or daughter, or mother, or neighbor, whom God has sent your way.

Many of you who are listening long to win souls but never do. You pray for souls to be saved, and sometimes timidly invite them to church, or tell them that you pray for them. Yet you do not get them saved. Why? Why? WHY?

This simple prayer which Jesus taught His disciples to pray gives us the answer. You dear Christians simply do not have what it takes. You do not have upon you the power of the Holy Ghost. You do not have the holy boldness, the deep concern, the travail of soul, the burning words, it may be, or the tears, or the example that God will use to win that soul to Himself!

You, if you are honest, must pray this prayer of confession, “A friend of mine in his journey is come to me AND I HAVE NOTHING TO SET BEFORE HIM!” You do not have the bread of life to set before sinners. You do not have what it takes. God meant for you to have, you could have had, and you may yet have the bread of life for sinners.

Let me suggest, then, that you drop very quietly before God and bow your head. Pray this simple prayer of confession. Mean it from your very soul. Acknowledge in these words your failure, your barrenness, your shallowness as a Christian, your lack of fruit-bearing. Pray it now in your heart. Perhaps it will help you if you bow your head, close your eyes, and earnestly and contritely, with a confession of your failure, pray these words: “O God, a friend of mine (husband, brother, neighbor, son, daughter, or sweetheart) has come to me and I have nothing to set before him. I ought to be able to win him to Christ, but I haven’t done it.”

Alibis and excuses here will do no good. If you are to learn to pray as Jesus is trying to teach you in these verses, then you will pray the prayer that is directed.
