Episode details

Today we present a prayer in podcast form. Of course, none of C.H. Surgeons’ sermons, nor his prayers were recorded in audio form, but they were preserved in written form. Please pray along with us as we “hear” Prayer 1-Help from on High, by Spurgeon as humbly voiced by the Voice of Epaphras. 1

From C. H. Spurgeon’s Pulpit Prayers in the Introduction by Dinsdale T. Young:

It was memorable to hear this incomparable divine when he preached. It was often even more memorable to hear him pray. Dr. John Cairns, the golden-mouthed preacher and scholar, much as he rejoiced in C. H. Spurgeon’s sermons, rejoiced yet more in his prayers. Many can bear a similar witness. Who talked with God as Spurgeon did? His congregational prayers—and I heard many—are always echoing in my grateful heart. They are sweet and luminous in the memory, as angel-presences. Never did I hear him pray without adoringly saying, “Lord, it is good for us to be here.” 2

Praying the Word of God on behalf of the People of God

  • Mon- Matthew 26:40, 41 - to watch and pray

  • Tue - Mark 4:14-20 - the Word to be sown

  • Wed - Luke 11:9-10 - to Ask, Seek, Knock

Will you join me in praying these verses, and ask one person to join you?

Until Thursday, grace and peace
