Here is a collection of sermons on the subject of prayer by one of the most beloved preachers in the history of the English-speaking world. Spurgeon was popular in the most fundamental sense of the word in that he was "of the people." He began selling his sermons early in his career, and they have been published in many formats over the last century and a half.
This edition presents the sermons in a re-typeset and redesigned modern, easy-to-read format. Selected from over 3,500 sermons, this volume features Spurgeon's preaching on praying: the personal life of prayer, as well as prayers of the Bible and the prayers of Christ.
The focus is on praying, not prayer, in the sense that praying is an action and not an abstraction. Spurgeon preaches about how praying is a key component of a righteous life, about the work of prayer in the life of a Christian, about examples of prayer found in the Scriptures, and about the pray-ers: the saints whose examples can teach us about prayer.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) served for 30 years at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London. It is estimated that during his lifetime he spoke to 10 million people, and he became known as the "Prince of Preachers." His works fill over 60 volumes; and more than a century after his death, his sermons and devotional texts continue to challenge and touch Christians and non-Christians alike with their biblical grounding, eloquent text, and simple encouragement. Among his published books are Lectures to My Students (Hendrickson); The Treasury of David (Hendrickson), a devotional commentary on the Psalms; All of Grace, the first Christian pocket-paperback published in the United States; numerous volumes of topical sermon collections; and the best-selling Morning and Evening.
Edward Hamil5 Stars Out Of 5August 24, 2008Edward HamilIt is classic Spurgeon at it's best. Informative.encouraging and inspirational to all who take the matter of prayer seriously.The sermon "The Raven,s Cry" is well worth the cost of the book.However,without exception,all of these messages will make the throne of God's grace a desire of the heart.Spurgeon was truely blest of God with a unique insight into the Word of God and a unique gift in expounding that insight in a plain and profound manner.
Murielle Elfman4 Stars Out Of 5April 9, 2008Murielle ElfmanThe passing of time has not diminished the power of these sermons. This book is not for casual reading! However, the energy invested in poring over each gem (sermon) reaps great reward. Highly recommended for anyone who takes prayer seriuosly.
