Inspiring devotional reading from two classic writers
Both Andrew Murray and C. H. Spurgeon wrote and taught about the immeasurable value of intercessory prayer in the life of every believer and the entire church. They believed that persistent, fervent prayer is, perhaps, the greatest work that every Christian can do by the grace of God and in the power of the Holy Spirit. Spurgeon told his congregation, "No one can do me a truer kindness in this world than to pray for me."
Editor L. G. Parkhurst has compiled selections on this important topic from Murray's devotional books and Spurgeon's sermons updating them for today's reader. The thirty-one devotionals begin with a reading by Murray, then Spurgeon's commentary on that aspect of intercession as well as a concluding prayer.
The Believer's Secret of Intercession powerfully persuades us to labor together and individually in fervent prayer so that sinners might be converted and blessings might fall upon the saints of God.
A unique devotional handbook on a topic of great importance for the church today.
Andrew Murray was born in South Africa in 1828. After receiving his education in Scotland and Holland, he returned to that land and spent many years there as both pastor and missionary. He is best known for his many devotional books.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon was born in England in 1834. Converted in 1850, he became a Baptist preacher in 1851. Known as the "Prince of Preachers," he added over 14,000 members to his church and preached enough sermons to fill 63 large volumes.
