We are warned of how unforgiveness, covetousness, disobedience, unbelief and wrong home life hinder prayer. But of all the sins mentioned regarding prayer, not once does the Scripture hint that any man ever asked too much of God!”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Dietrich Bonhoeffer. He said: “True prayer is done in secret, but this does not rule out the fellowship of prayer altogether, however clearly we may be aware of its dangers. In the last resort it is immaterial whether we pray in the open street or in the secrecy of our chambers, whether briefly or lengthily, in the Litany of the Church, or with the sigh of one who knows not what he should pray for. True prayer does not depend either on the individual or the whole body of the faithful, but solely upon the knowledge that our Heavenly Father knows our needs.”
