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.

Prayer Opens Up Divine Resources, Part 8 (TPMD Bus 2 – #637)

TODAY’S POEM: “O Seek the Lord in Prayer” by John A. Dalles

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Psalm 32:6 which reads: “For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found : surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.”

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from Karl Graustein. He said: “Prayer is a humble act of declaring our dependence on God.”

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 “PRAYER OPENS UP DIVINE RESOURCES” part 8 from the book, “Purpose in Prayer” by E.M. Bounds.

E.M. Bounds continues to tell the story of S. D. Gordon’s prayer experience:

“He said to me: ‘I was tremendously shaken. I wanted to be honest. I was perfectly honest in not believing in God, and I thought I was right. But if what she said was true, then merely as a lawyer sifting his evidence in a case, it would be good evidence that there was really something in their prayer. I was terrifically shaken, and wanted to be honest, and did not know what to do. That same night I went to a little Methodist chapel, and if somebody had known how to talk with me, I think I should have accepted Christ that night.’ Then he said that the next night he went back again to that chapel, where meetings were being held each night, and there he kneeled at the altar, and yielded his great strong will to the will of God. Then he said, ‘I knew I was to preach,’ and he is preaching still in a Western State. That is half of the story.

I also talked with his wife—I wanted to put the two halves together, so as to get the bit of teaching in it all—and she told me this. She had been a Christian—what you call a nominal Christian—a strange confusion of terms. Then there came a time when she was led into a full surrender of her life to the Lord Jesus Christ. Then she said, ‘At once there came a great intensifying of desire that my husband might be a Christian, and we made that little compact to pray for him—each day until he became a Christian. That night I was kneeling at my bedside before going to rest, praying for my husband, praying very earnestly and then a voice said to me, “Are you willing for the results that will come if your husband is converted?”’ The little message was so very distinct that she said she was frightened; she had never had such an experience. But she went on praying still more earnestly, and again there came the quiet voice, ‘Are you willing for the consequences?’ And again there was a sense of being startled, frightened. But she still went on praying, and wondering what this meant, and a third time the quiet voice came more quietly than ever as she described it, ‘Are you willing for the consequences?’

The Prayer Motivator Minute #615

John Crysostom said: “You can set up an altar to God in your minds by means of prayer. And so it is fitting to pray at your trade, on a journey, standing at a counter or sitting at your handicraft.”

This is Daniel Whyte III with the Prayer Motivator Minute #615 here to remind you that there is still great power in prayer to God Almighty.

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is 1 Timothy 2:1-2, which reads: “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Martin Luther. He said: “God is ready to give more quickly, and to give more than you ask; yea, he offers his treasures if we only take them. It is truly a great shame and a severe chastisement for us Christians that God should still upbraid us for our slothfulness in prayer, and that we fail to let such a rich and excellent promise incite us to pray.”

Prayer Opens Up Divine Resources, Part 7 (TPMD Bus 2 – #636)

TODAY’S POEM: “Where Time Stands Still” by Kathleen Higham

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Psalm 30:8 which reads: “I cried to thee, O Lord; and unto the Lord I made supplication.”

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from Bruce Wilkinson. He said: “In all moods and in all seasons pour out the soul in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, and if the Spirit groans in intercession do not be afraid of the agony of prayer. There are blessings of the Kingdom that are only yielded to the violence of the vehement soul.”

My personal encouragement for you today is this: Here are some benefits that I have personally received from prayer to God, and that I know you can receive as well. These are not things I THINK God can do through prayer; these are things I KNOW God will do through prayer: (1) Prayer to God can bring you the mate that He wants you to have. (2) Prayer to God can keep your marriage and family together against the odds with joy and happiness, and let nobody fool you, “the family that prays together, still stays together”. The reason why the divorce rate in the church is equal to the divorce rate in the world today is for no other reason than a lack of prayer. And (3) Prayer to God can bring healing to the heart, mind, soul, and body.

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

In an address at Cambridge some time ago (reported in “The Life of Faith,” April 3rd, 1912), Mr. S. D. Gordon told in his own inimitable way the story of a man in his own country, to illustrate from real life the fact of the reality of prayer, and that it is not mere talking.

“This man,” said Mr. Gordon, “came of an old New England family, a bit farther back an English family. He was a giant in size, and a keen man mentally, and a university-trained man. He had gone out West to live, and represented a prominent district in our House of Congress, answering to your House of Commons. He was a prominent leader there. He was reared in a Christian family, but he was a sceptic, and used to lecture against Christianity. He told me he was fond, in his lectures, of proving, as he thought, conclusively, that there was no God. That was the type of his infidelity.

“One day he told me he was sitting in the Lower House of Congress. It was at the time of a Presidential Election, and when party feeling ran high. One would have thought that was the last place where a man would be likely to think about spiritual things. He said: ‘I was sitting in my seat in that crowded House and that heated atmosphere, when a feeling came to me that the God, whose existence I thought I could successfully disprove, was just there above me, looking down on me, and that He was displeased with me, and with the way I was doing. I said to myself, “This is ridiculous, I guess I’ve been working too hard. I’ll go and get a good meal and take a long walk and shake myself, and see if that will take this feeling away.”‘ He got his extra meal, took a walk, and came back to his seat, but the impression would not be shaken off that God was there and was displeased with him. He went for a walk, day after day, but could never shake the feeling off. Then he went back to his constituency in his State, he said, to arrange matters there. He had the ambition to be the Governor of his State, and his party was the dominant party in the State, and, as far as such things could be judged, he was in the line to become Governor there, in one of the most dominant States our Central West. He said: ‘I went home to fix that thing up as far as I could, and to get ready for it. But I had hardly reached home and exchanged greetings, when my wife, who was an earnest Christian woman, said to me that a few of them had made a little covenant of prayer that I might become a Christian.’ He did not want her to know the experience that he had just been going through, and so he said as carelessly as he could, ‘When did this thing begin, this praying of yours?’ She named the date. Then he did some very quick thinking, and he knew, as he thought back, that it was the day on the calendar when that strange impression came to him for the first time.

The Prayer Motivator Minute #614

Constance Garrett said: “Our growth in grace and power depends largely upon our individual, personal prayer life. Yet public worship is nonetheless important and necessary.”

This is Daniel Whyte III with the Prayer Motivator Minute #614 here to remind you that there is still great power in prayer to God Almighty.

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Philippians 4:6 which reads: “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from C. H. Mackintosh. He said: “The simple fact is, we are too vague and, as a consequence, too indifferent in our prayers and prayer meetings. We do not seem like people asking for what they want, and waiting for what they ask. This is what destroys our prayer meetings, rendering them pithless, pointless, powerless; turning them into teaching or talking meetings, rather than deep-toned, earnest prayer meetings.”

Prayer Opens Up Divine Resources, Part 6 (TPMD Bus 2 – #635)

TODAY’S POEM: “Today Thy Mercy Calls Me” by Oswald Allen

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Psalm 17:1 which reads: “Hear the right, O Lord, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.”

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from J.B. Johnson. He said: “The prayer meeting answers to this demand of the spiritual brotherhood, with more exclusiveness and direct fitness than any other ordinance of religious worship… There is a power in conferring and covenanting, on the part of kindred spirits, to come before God, and plead together some special promise… The prayer meeting is a divine ordinance, founded in man’s social nature… The prayer meeting is a special means of developing and cultivating Christian graces, and of promoting individual and social edification.”

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 “PRAYER OPENS UP DIVINE RESOURCES” part 6 from the book, “Purpose in Prayer” by E.M. Bounds.

Hudson Taylor himself, as all the world knows, was a man who knew how to pray and whose praying was blessed with fruitful answers. In the story of his life, told by Dr. and Mrs. Howard Taylor, we find page after page aglow with answered prayer. On his way out to China for the first time, in 1853, when he was only twenty-one years of age, he had a definite answer to prayer that was a great encouragement to his faith. “They .had just come through the Dampier Strait, but were not yet out of sight of the islands. Usually a breeze would spring up after sunset and last until about dawn. The utmost use was made of it, but during the day they lay still with flapping sails, often drifting back and losing a good deal of the advantage gained at night.” The story continues in Hudson Taylor’s own words:

“This happened notably on one occasion when we were in dangerous proximity to the north of New Guinea. Saturday night had brought us to a point some thirty miles off the land, and during the Sunday morning service, which was held on deck, I could not fail to see that the Captain looked troubled and frequently went over to the side of the ship. When the service was ended I learnt from him the cause. A four-knot current was carrying us toward some sunken reefs, and we were already so near that it seemed improbable that we should get through the afternoon in safety. After dinner, the long boat was put out and all hands endeavored, without success, to turn the ship’s head from the shore.

The Prayer Motivator Minute #613

J.B. Johnston said: “The prayer meeting is the pulse of the church.”

Our prayer motivator passage 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 David Smithers. He said: “A prayerless man is proud and independent, and any church that neglects corporate prayer is sadly no better. Only God’s humble and needy children take the time to pray. Everyone else is just going through the motions and naively trusting in their own strength!”

Prayer Opens Up Divine Resources, Part 5 (TPMD Bus 2 – #634)

TODAY’S POEM: “Manasseh Bowed in His Affliction” by Margaret Cagle

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Psalm 6:9 which reads: “The Lord hath heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer.”

Our featured prayer motivator quote is from an Author Unknown. He said: “There are three degrees in prayer. The lowest is that spoken only by the lips. The next is when, by a resolute effort, we succeed in fixing our thoughts on Divine things. The third is when the soul finds it hard to turn away from God.”

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 “PRAYER OPENS UP DIVINE RESOURCES” part 5 from the book, “Purpose in Prayer” by E.M. Bounds.

“I have seen God’s hand stretched out to heal among the heathen in as mighty wonder-working power as in apostolic times,” once said a well-known minister. “I was preaching to two thousand famine orphaned girls in India, at Ra-ma-bai’s Muk-ti (salvation) Mission. A swarm of serpents as venomous and deadly as the reptile that smote Paul, suddenly raided the walled grounds, ‘sent of Satan,’ Ra-mabai said, and several of her most beautiful and faithful Christian girls were smitten by them, two of them bitten twice. I saw four of the very flower of her flock in convulsions at once, unconscious and apparently in the agonies of death.

“Ra-ma-bai believes the Bible with an implicit and obedient faith. There were three of us missionaries there. She said: ‘We will do just what the Bible says, I want you to minister for their healing according to James 1:14-18.’ She led the way into the dormitory where her girls were lying in spasms, and we laid our hands upon their heads and prayed, and anointed them with oil in the name of the Lord. Each of them was healed as soon as anointed and sat up and sang with faces shining. That miracle and marvel among the heathen mightily confirmed the word of the Lord, and was a profound and overpowering proclamation of God.”
