E.M. Bounds said, “Whenever there is little praying in the pulpit or in the pew, spiritual bankruptcy is imminent and inevitable.”

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Matthew 26:36 which reads: “Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Joan D. Chittister. She said, “Spirituality without a prayer life is no spirituality at all, and it will not last beyond the first defeats. Prayer is an opening of the self so that the Word of God can break in and make us new. Prayer unmasks. Prayer converts. Prayer impels. Prayer sustains us on the way. Pray for the grace it will take to continue what you would like to quit.”
