Our prayer motivator quote today is from E.M. Bounds. He said, “As God’s house is called “the house of prayer,” because prayer is the most important of its holy offices; so by the same token, the Bible may be called the Book of Prayer.

W.H. Griffith Thomas said, “Prayer makes real the presence of God, and in that presence, ‘the will of God’ becomes clear and asserts its complete authority.”

This is Daniel Whyte III with the Prayer Motivator Minute #868 here to remind you that there is still great power in prayer to God Almighty in the holy Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thousands and tens of thousands of times have my prayers been answered. When once I am persuaded that a thing is right and for the glory of God, I go on praying for it until the answer comes. I never give up!”

Anna: Fasting for the First Coming of the King (Fasting Edition #171)

[audio http://theprayermotivatorminute.buzzsprout.com/3196/65157-anna-fasting-for-the-first-coming-of-the-king-fasting-edition-171.mp3]

Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from an Unknown Author. He said: “Fasting is a way to demonstrate to God, and to yourself, that you are serious about your relationship with Him. Fasting helps you to gain a new perspective and a renewed reliance upon God.”

Our fasting devotional today is titled “ANNA: FASTING FOR THE FIRST COMING OF THE KING” from John Piper, author of the bestselling book “A Hunger for God: Desiring God through Fasting and Prayer”.

In calling for the church to fast for the coming King, we are not asking for something new. Luke 2:36–38 shows us an old woman who gave almost her whole life to this sacred ministry before the King came the first time.

There was a prophetess, Anna the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was advanced in years, having lived with a husband seven years after her marriage, and then as a widow to the age of eighty-four. And she never left the temple, serving night and day with fastings and prayers. And at that very moment she came up and began giving thanks to God, and continued to speak of Him to all those who were looking for the redemption of Jerusalem.

Mary and Joseph had just brought the infant Jesus into the temple. Luke tells us about two very old people, Simeon and Anna, who recognize who the baby is. What marks both of these people is that they were yearning and longing for the coming of the Messiah. In verse 25 it says that Simeon was “looking for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him.” Jesus, the Messiah, is the consolation of Israel.

In verse 37 it says that Anna virtually never left the temple and was serving the Lord “with fastings and prayers.” In other words, she was like Simeon—she was longing for the Messiah to come; she was fasting and praying night and day because she was looking for “the redemption of Jerusalem.”

In verse 38 she comes at just the right moment to see the Messiah-child, and she gives thanks to God and speaks of him to all who were “looking for the redemption of Jerusalem.” In other words God gave a special glimpse of the King’s glory to those who were yearning and longing and looking for “the redemption of Jerusalem.” For Anna that meant a life of fasting decade after decade—probably 60 years since her husband died—as she ministered in the temple.

I think one of the reasons Luke tells us about Simeon and Anna is to illustrate how holy and devout people respond to the promise of Christ’s coming. And how God responds to their longings. They see more than others see. They may not understand fully all the details about how the Messiah is coming—Simeon and Anna surely didn’t—but God mercifully gives them a glimpse before they die, of what they so passionately wanted to see.

Jesus in Gethsemane is Our Example of How We Ought Pray, Part 1 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #203)


MP3 Download Link: Download

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Psalm 143:1 which reads: “Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from R.A. Torrey. He said: “Those persons who know the deep peace of God, the unfathomable peace that passeth all understanding, are always men and women of much prayer.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 1 of a new series titled “JESUS IN GETHSEMANE IS OUR EXAMPLE OF HOW WE OUGHT TO PRAY” from Dr. John R. Rice.

This most striking example of the Saviour’s surrender to the will of the Father is when He was bowed down in the Garden of Gethsemane under the weight of the sins of the world, when His soul was “exceeding sorrowful, even unto death,” He said in Matthew 26:38, and when “his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.” There Jesus prayed in Matthew 26:29, saying, “O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.”

Then again He prayed in Matthew 26:42, “O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.”

Then a third time we are told He prayed, “saying the same words.” Facing the most awful suffering, without hesitation, Jesus said to His Father and our Father, “Not as I will, but as thou wilt.”

But this scriptural incident has been greatly misunderstood. Many have taught that here the Lord Jesus was begging the Father that He might not have to go to the cross, and only reluctantly submitted to the thing He did not want to do, and tried to avoid. Some commentators have supposed that Jesus thought there might be some other way to save sinners besides the cross.

But all this seems foolish in the light of other Scriptures.

Is it God’s Will to Heal Every Time?, Part 3 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #174)

MP3 Download Link: The Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #174

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is James 5:16 which reads: “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Andrew A. Bonar. He said: “Oh brother, pray; in spite of Satan, pray; spend hours in prayer; rather neglect friends than not pray; rather fast, and lose breakfast, dinner, tea, and supper–and sleep too–than not pray. And we must not talk about prayer, we must pray in right earnest. The Lord is near. He comes softly while the virgins slumber.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is the third and final part of our series titled Is It God’s Will to Heal Every Time? from Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Rice said…

My mother died when she was about 28 years old. On her deathbed she made us promise to meet her in Heaven; had us sing “How Firm a Foundation, Ye Saints of the Lord,” and looking up, declared that she saw Jesus and her baby. And so, literally filled with the Spirit and rejoicing, she went home to Heaven. Was her sickness God’s will? I, who have missed her so much for over 70 years, feel certain that it was.

And every divine healer who teaches that it is God’s will that every Christian should have perfect health, sooner or later finds that sickness comes upon him, and sometimes with it the breakdown of all his faith, and even insanity. And the sickness eventually results in death even for the most spiritually-minded, the best Christians, those who claim sinless perfection and those who claim perfect health from God alike. “It is appointed unto man once to die,” and death proves that no man has yet lived (save Enoch and Elijah, who never died) who has attained either perfect health or perfect righteousness this side of the grave.

So, although Christ “Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses,” and though Christ’s death on the cross did surely guarantee for all who are born again by faith that one day our bodies as well as our natures will have perfect redemption, we do not yet possess all that is bought for us. Healing of the body may not instantly be claimed in every case, as forgiveness of sins may be instantly received always by penitent faith. We are told in Romans 8:18-23 that perfect healing, along with the resurrection of our glorified bodies, is in the atonement made by Christ. But that “adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body,” certainly is now wholly ours until Jesus comes.

Is it God’s Will to Heal Every Time?, Part 2 (The Prayer Motivator Devotional #172)

MP3 Download Link: The Prayer Motivator Devotional Broadcast #172

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is James 5:13 which reads: “Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from George Mueller. He said: “It is not enough to begin to pray, nor to pray aright; nor is it enough to continue for a time to pray; but we must patiently, believingly, continue in prayer until we obtain an answer.”

Our prayer motivator devotional today is part 2 of our series titled “IS IT GOD’S WILL TO HEAL EVERY TIME?” from Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Rice said…

Certainly it is not always God’s will to heal. When God promised in Romans 8:28 that “all things work together for good to them that love God,” He included sickness in His “all things.”

How much blessedness has come because of the sufferings of Christians! Stephen was martyred. If his bones could honor the Lord in being broken, could not ours, sometimes? If Timothy’s weak stomach was not healed but needed careful moderation and use of fruit juice, why may not Christians today sometimes have weak stomachs to the glory of God? If Job suffered, if Paul suffered, if Timothy had often infirmities, if Trophimus and Epaphroditus could be sick to the glory of God, then sometimes that may be true of you too. It was for the glory of God that Lazarus was sick and died. Then it was to God’s glory that he should be raised from the dead. But it was not to the glory of God for Lazarus to stay well, so again he died, as does everybody else, no matter how good he may be. Even King David said in Psalm 119:71, “It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.”

Read the story of David Brainerd, the man of prayer, and see how earnest his prayer life, how strong his faith, how marvelous the answers God gave to his prayers, and then explain how he died of tuberculosis before he was thirty, perfectly content to go, assured that it was God’s perfect will for him, the best promotion he could have! Sickness, like all the other things that follow a sinful race, can be used of God for His glory and for our preparation for His service and for Heaven.
