The Prayer Motivator Minute #643

10 Jun

Thomas Coke said: “A real minister of the gospel is a man of prayer.”

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Nehemiah 1:6 which says: “Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father’s house have sinned.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from John R. Rice. He said, “No doubt we will not always know as perfectly as Jesus knew the will of God. Perhaps it was largely for our example that He prayed so repeatedly, ‘Thy will be done,’ and, ‘Not as I will but as thou wilt,’ since the incident is clearly recorded by Matthew, Mark, and Luke, as if the Holy Spirit wished to emphasize it. Every Christian should have this explicit understanding with God about every prayer, ‘Not as I will but as thou wilt.'”
