The Prayer Motivator Minute #682

27 Jul

Jim Cymbala said: “The devil is not terribly frightened of our human efforts and credentials. But he knows his kingdom will be damaged when we begin to lift up our hearts to God.”

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Jeremiah 33:3 which reads: “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from C.H. Spurgeon. He said: “The leader who neglects to pray much must be very careless about his ministry. He cannot have comprehended his calling. He cannot have computed the value of a soul, or estimated the meaning of eternity. He must be a mere official, tempted into a pulpit because the piece of bread which belongs to the priest’s office is very necessary to him, or a detestable hypocrite who loves the praise of men, and cares not for the praise of God. He will surely become a mere superficial talker, best approved where grace is least valued and a vain show most admired. He cannot be one of those who plough deep and reap abundant harvests. He is a mere loiterer, not a laborer. As a leader he has a name to live and is dead. He limps in his life like the lame man in the Proverbs, whose legs were not equal, for his praying is shorter than his preaching.”
