Our thought for today is we should not use prayer as a last resort, but as a first resort.
Our prayer motivator verse for today is Romans 12:12 which says: “Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer.”
Our prayer motivator quote for today is from Corrie ten Boom. She said: “Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?”
Our prayer motivator devotional for today is are you ready to go to work in prayer from J. Gordon Henry. Dr. Henry said:
Intercession is the part of prayer that brings the greatest results and dividends. It is the most neglected part of prayer because we are not on praying ground. Once we are clean, we can go to WORK. We will then “stir ourselves” to lay hold on God. Isaiah 64:7 says, “And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed
us, because of our iniquities.” There will be movement, effort and discipline — there will be WORK.
It is absolutely necessary for us to WORK if we are going to make progress toward being a prayer warrior. There are some things that God does not do for us; rather, He waits until we do them. We put food, water, and oxygen into our bodies. There follows a process of manufacturing energy from these ingredients. We then expend that energy. Most of the energy is spent on activities that really don’t matter at all yet they take our time and resources. Twenty-four hours after we do them, it doesn’t matter if we did them at all. If we are going to use our energy on things that do matter, it will be because we have made up our minds to do so. THE MAIN THING IS TO KEEP THE MAIN THING THE MAIN THING! The less we pray for ourselves and the more we pray for others, the nearer we approach Christlikeness.
