The Prayer Motivator Minute #758

12 Oct

Someone said: “Praying is something we do in our time, the answers come in God’s time.”

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Luke 22:45-46 which reads: “And when he [Jesus] rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow, And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Frederick W. Robertson. He said, “That prayer which does not succeed in moderating our wish, in changing the passionate desire into still submission, the anxious, tumultuous expectation into silent surrender, is no true prayer, and proves that we have not the spirit of true prayer. That life is most holy in which there is least of petition and desire, and most of waiting upon God; that in which petition most often passes into thanksgiving. Pray till prayer makes you forget your own wish, and leave it or merge it in God’s will. Prayer has been given us, not as a means whereby to obtain the good things of earth, but as a means whereby we learn to do without them; not as a means whereby we escape evil, but as a means whereby we become strong to meet it.”
