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.

John R. Rice: “When God’s people really pray through, they can have revival, protection, provision…” (The Prayer Motivator Minute #555)

John R. Rice said, “When God’s people really pray through, they can have revival, protection, provision, anointing of the Holy Spirit and anything else God has for His people.”

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is Matthew 7:7-8 which says: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from E.M. Bounds. He said, “The praying which makes a prayerful ministry is not a little praying put in as we put flavor to give it a pleasant smack, but the praying must be in the body, and form the blood and bones. Prayer is no petty duty, put into a corner; no piecemeal performance made out of the fragments of time which have been snatched from business and other engagements of life; but it means that the best of our time, the heart of our time and strength must be given.”

Pray Always, Part 3 (TPMD Bus 2 – #590)

TODAY’S POEM: “This I Pray” by Timothy Jon Barrett.

Our prayer motivator passage from the Word of God today is II Kings 19:1-4 which reads: “And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the Lord. And he sent Eliakim, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz. And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy; for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth. It may be the Lord thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the Lord thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Leonard Ravenhill. He said, “No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here [in prayer], we fail everywhere.”

My personal encouragement for you today is this: Here are three more benefits that I have personally received from prayer to God, and that I know you can receive as well. (1) Prayer to God will give you peace and joy even though you don’t deserve it. (2) Prayer to God can supply your needs. And (3) Prayer to God can lift burdens, worries, fears, and cares.

Our prayer motivator devotional today is titled “PRAY ALWAYS” part 3 from the book, “Purpose in Prayer” by E.M. Bounds.

George Muller also combined Bible study with prayer in the quiet morning hours. At one time his practice was to give himself to prayer, after having dressed, in the morning. Then his plan underwent a change. As he himself put it: “I saw the most important thing I had to do was to give myself to the reading of the Word of God, and to meditation on it, that thus my heart might be comforted, encouraged, warned, reproved, instructed; and that thus, by means of the Word of God, whilst meditating on it, my heart might be brought into experimental communion with the Lord. I began, therefore, to meditate on the New Testament early in the morning. The first thing I did, after having asked in a few words for the Lord’s blessing upon his precious Word, was to begin to meditate on the Word of God, searching as it were, into every verse to get blessing out of it; not for the sake of the public ministry of the Word, not for the sake of preaching on what I had meditated on, but for the sake of obtaining food for my own soul. The result I have found to be almost invariably thus, that after a very few minutes my soul has been led to confession, or to thanksgiving, or to intercession, or to supplication; so that, though I did not, as it were, give myself to prayer, but to meditation, yet it turned almost immediately more or less into prayer.”

The study of the Word and prayer go together, and where we find the one truly practised, the other is sure to be seen in close alliance.

But we do not pray always. That is the trouble with so many of us. We need to pray much more than we do and much longer than we do.

Joyce Meyer: “When we pray, we open the door for God to come into our problems and situations and work on them.” (The Prayer Motivator Minute #521)

Joyce Meyer said, “When we pray, we open the door for God to come into our problems and situations and work on them.”

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Romans 8:15 which reads: “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Leonard Ravenhill. He said, “Preaching is a spiritual business. A sermon born in the head reaches the head; a sermon born in the heart reaches the heart. Under God, a spiritual preacher will produce spiritually minded people. Unction is not a gentle dove beating her wings against the bars outside of the preacher’s soul; rather, she must be pursued and won. Unction cannot be learned, only earned–by prayer. Unction is God’s knighthood for the soldier-preacher who has wrestled in prayer and gained the victory. Victory is not won in the pulpit by firing intellectual bullets or wisecracks, but in the prayer closet; it is won or lost before the preacher’s foot enters the pulpit.”

Joseph Cameneti, Sr.: “Prayer is the vehicle that releases God to move in the earth!” (The Prayer Motivator Minute #520)

Joseph Cameneti, Sr., said, “Prayer is not a fruitless exercise that God asked us to perform to determine whether or not we’re faithful. Prayer is the vehicle that releases God to move in the earth!”

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is 1 Thessalonians 5:17, which reads: “Pray without ceasing.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from John Piper. He said, “Prayer is not some small thing. It is not some marginal thing. It is not some incidental thing in the Christian life. Prayer is at the heart of why God created the universe. You may have the modern, secular notion that the universe is really about great galactic events and supernovas and remarkable expanses of time and space and energy. But in reality the center of the created universe is man created in the image of God. And the meaning of man in the image of God is to display God’s glory. And the way God delights to display his glory in man is by being depended on through prayer.”

E.M. Bounds: “God delights to have us pray.” (The Prayer Motivator Minute #517)

E.M. Bounds said, “God delights to have us pray.”

Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Matthew 26:36 which says: “Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.”

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Andrew Murray. He said, “Let us think of the need of souls, of all the sins among God’s people, of the lack of power in so much of the preaching, and begin to cry, ‘Wilt thou not revive us again; that thy people may rejoice in thee?” And let us have this truth lodged deep in our hearts; every revival comes, as Pentecost came, as the fruit of united, continued prayer.”
