The Necessity for Praying Men, Part 4 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #750)

TPM-logo

Welcome to the Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #750. This is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International. The simple purpose of this podcast is to encourage you, exhort you, and motivate you to Just Pray. This podcast is not necessarily for people who already know the secret and power of prayer and who actually practice genuine prayer on a regular basis, rather it is for those who may find it difficult to pray or for people who claim they do not have time to pray. I am convinced that most Christian people do not need to learn how to pray; they need to Just Pray! If I can get you to just pray, all sorts of wonderful things will begin to happen for you, your family, and whatever God has called you to do. We do not pray based upon our subjective feelings, we pray based upon objective facts in the Word of God.

Fighting the Battle of Secularism in Our Nation (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #97)

Our prayer motivator verse for today is Psalm 116:2 which reads: “Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.”

Our thought for today is that we can never pray enough.

Our prayer motivator quote for today is from C.H. Spurgeon. He said, “Prayer can never be in excess.”

Our prayer motivator devotional for today is titled FIGHTING THE BATTLE OF SECULARISM IN OUR NATION THROUGH PRAYER from J. Gordon Henry:

As a result of the work of secular humanists, few are left even in Christianity who firmly believe in the historicity of the first eleven chapters of Genesis and special creation as opposed to evolution. Those who do are looked upon as ignorant, backward people. I have in my possession the California school code that states that evolution is to be taught as scientific fact. Since evolution is the very heart of secular humanism, think of the implications of that requirement. Why is it that the humanistic ideas have free course in our schools and any reference to God is not acceptable? Too long have we Christians forfeited our right to equal treatment under the law.

We will never win the war until we know where the battle is being fought. As born-again, Bible believers, we possess armaments and artillery that are supernatural. We will either use them or lose the war. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 tells us, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” Paul reminded the Christians in sinful Corinth that they possessed resources eclipsing anything the devil could muster. In Ephesians 6:12, he informed the Ephesian believers that “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Actually, this is a spiritual hierarchy of organization. Satan is not omniscient, omnipresent, or omnipotent—but he is organized. In order to do battle against him, Christians need to have on the whole armor of God which is described in Ephesians 6:10-17. After the armor is on, the first activity mentioned is prayer. The battle is fought in the place of prayer!

The Seven Stages a Nation Goes Through That Leads to Destruction by God (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #93)

Our prayer motivator verse for today is 1 John 5:14, which reads: “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us.”

Our thought for today is that praying to God is the most we can do in any situation.

Our prayer motivator quote for today is from A.J. Gordon. He said, “You can do more than pray after you have prayed; but you can never do more than pray until you have prayed.”

Our prayer motivator devotional for today is titled THE SEVEN STAGES A NATION GOES THROUGH THAT LEADS TO DESTRUCTION BY GOD from J. Gordon Henry:

In the book, “America: To Pray or Not to Pray”, author David Barton has postulated seven stages a nation goes through leading to eventual destruction by God. In the first stage, God convicts His people of their sins. Second, He warns them of sins. Third, He applies remedial judgment of sins committed. In the fourth stage, God withdraws His presence. In the fifth stage, He takes away the wall of protection and allows disasters to come upon His people. In the sixth stage, He gives His people over to sin, failure, and depravity. In the seventh stage, He destroys His people. Barton, believes America is in the fifth stage.

Decadence, crime, violence, the recent onslaught of natural disasters, and an ecological system that is failing are signs God has turned His back on America as a nation. There is abundant evidence that God removed His wall of protection away from America sometime around 1963 when our Supreme Court ruled that prayer and Bible reading have no place in the schools.

What will turn the tide? II Chronicles 7:14 is the text that tells us. It is spoken to Christians — “My people called by My Name” (which happened to believers at Antioch, Syria when they were called Christians first in Acts 11:26). There is an “If…Then” arrangement. God says to Christians “if” you do these things, “then” here is what I will do. Under “IF,” He lists four things: (1) become humble which means dependence upon God–not ourselves or anyone else; (2) pray which means to ask in the sense of God’s hand to move; (3) seek His face for worship; and (4) turn from sin. Under “THEN”, He lists what He will do: (1) He will hear from Heaven—which is headquarters where all the resources that will ever be needed are in stock; (2) He will lift and remove the heavy load; and (3) He will heal the land. This is what will turn the tide for America or for any nation.

Remember that INTERCESSORS are literally “go-betweens”—standing between God and someone else or some circumstance. We need INTERCESSORS for America. Many of you are already intercessors and others want to become intercessors for our land. The assumption is that you will be on praying ground by having all sin confessed and forsaken and you are yielded to the Holy Spirit with Him in control—which is what Spirit-filled means. No believer can help turn our nation back to God unless he is clean before God. I would encourage you to get on your knees and ask God to make you a person He can use.

The Importance of Asking God to Bind the Power of Satan When Praying for Unbelievers (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #89)

Our prayer motivator verse for today is Psalm 116:2 which reads: “Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.”

Our thought for today is God carries out His work and plans in the earth through men and women of prayer.

Our prayer motivator quote for today is from E.M. Bounds. He said, “God’s cause is committed to men; God commits Himself to men. Praying men are the vice-regents of God; they do His work and carry out His plans.”

Our prayer motivator devotional for today is titled THE IMPORTANCE OF ASKING GOD TO BIND THE POWER OF SATAN WHEN PRAYING FOR UNBELIEVERS from J. Gordon Henry:

Using the authority that we have in Christ, we can ask God specifically to bind the power of Satan. Matthew 18:18 tells us, “Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Mark 3:27 says, “No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.” We are called of God, according to Ephesians 6:11-12, to be conquerors in spiritual warfare on this earth. James describes this warfare when he told us to submit ourselves to God and to resist the Devil so he will flee from us in James 4:7. This should not make us afraid. Truly, it should give us great encouragement in our role as intercessors.

We have power in this warfare; the Lord Jesus Christ Himself is that power. We must stand our ground in this spiritual battle with the authority given us by God. Strongholds cannot stand against our authority when it is properly wielded. Just as a policeman can stop or move traffic by a gesture of his hand, so we, in Christ’s name, command spiritual powers. Through prayer (in His name—by His authority) believers can command evil powers that bind the souls of people to release their captives. Remember that Satan is perfectly defeated and greater is He who is in us than the one that is in the world.

Through intercession, we claim the work of Calvary in the lost person’s life. The blood of Jesus has atoned for the sins of the whole world. To pray in the name of Jesus is to claim everything that His work has purchased. The sins of an unsaved person have already been paid for by the blood of Jesus which has already been shed. Jesus has purchased the lost person. Remember that a person never goes to hell because of his sins (drinking, lying, fornicating, murdering, etc). Rather, he is condemned because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. Since Jesus has already paid for his redemption, we have the right to claim him in Jesus’ name. IN HIS NAME, THE INTERCESSOR HAS THE RIGHT TO CLAIM WHAT HIS BLOOD HAS PURCHASED!

Regular Prayer for Fellow Christians Will Help Keep them from Failing (The Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #73)

Our prayer motivator verse for today is Psalm 46:10 which reads: “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Our prayer motivator quote for today is from Henry Drummond. He said, “Ten minutes spent in the presence of Christ every day, aye, two minutes, will make the whole day different.”

Our prayer motivator devotional for today is how we should pray for fellow Christians, not just in times of crisis, but everyday from J. Gordon Henry.

Regular Prayer for Fellow Christians Will Help Keep them from Failing

Dr. Henry said:

So very often we hear about failure in individual Christian lives and in the church fellowship that can be traced back to failures in daily prayer and reading the Word. Sometimes, a prominent Christian leader loses his influence and brings dishonor to the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Where are the prayer warriors who are placing a hedge of protection around fellow Christians? When we do pray for others, it is
often crisis-oriented praying instead of ongoing steady praying. Think about your prayer life for fellow believers. Start with your immediate family and work beyond that. You can be sure if you are not praying for your spouse, your children, or your grandchildren, no one else is. As an intercessor, pray the Scripture truths that the Holy Spirit gives you in relationship to other believers.
