Prayer Helps You Deal with Difficult People (The Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #72)

Our prayer motivator verse for today is Mark 11:24 which reads: “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”

Our prayer motivator quote for today is from Leonard Ravenhill. He said, “A man who is intimate with God will never be intimidated by men.”

Our prayer motivator devotional for today is the importance of praying for our brothers and sisters in Christ from J. Gordon Henry. Dr. Henry writes:

Sad to say, few Christians are prayed for regularly by anyone and that should not be so. Every local church needs to develop a prayer strategy whereby believers pray for one another by name and need. Paul illustrates this type of intercession when he told the Roman believers in Romans 1:8: “First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.” Prayer
to God the Father, through the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son, for others – that is intecessory praying – and in the power of the Holy Spirit Who joins us as we begin to pray.

A study of Paul’s praying provides the primary direction for his praying — which is quite foreign to what we pray for others. Ephesians 3:14-19 reads, “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches
of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.” Paul prays not for physical or material blessings, but for spiritual blessings. He prays that there may be spiritual strength, spiritual depth, spiritual perspective, and spiritual fullness. Think what a difference possessing these characteristics would make in a believer’s life and in the cause of
the Lord Jesus Christ.
