A day filled with grace begins with time spent alone with God, and as each new day begins it is only fitting that we to open our eyes and our hearts to the Creator. These morning devotions will anchor your soul so that you will be less likely to stumble throughout the day's journey. Charles Spurgeon once said that to rush from bed into business without first talking with God is as foolish as forgetting to bathe or getting dressed. Join the "prince of preachers" as you dedicate your time to God each new morning and allow Spurgeon's teachings to provide you with the spiritual guidance you seek.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), the "Prince of Preachers," preached his first sermon at age sixteen and became a pastor at age eighteen. Spurgeon drew large crowds and built the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London in 1861 to accommodate them. He published over two thousand sermons; his inspiring and challenging messages comprise the largest collection of work by a single author. Spurgeon preached to an estimated ten million people during his lifetime, including notables such as the prime minister of England, members of the royal family, and Florence Nightingale. He appealed constantly to his hearers to move on in the Christian faith, to allow the Lord to minister to them individually, and to be used of God to win the lost to Christ. In addition to his powerful preaching, Spurgeon founded and supported charitable outreaches, including educational institutions. His pastors' college, which is still in existence today, taught nearly nine hundred students in Spurgeon's time. He also founded the famous Stockwell Orphanage.
