Spurgeon: the sinful prayer

Saturday, July 26, 2014
    And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will.
    —Romans 8:27 (NIV)
    The prayer which moves the arm of God is still a sinful prayer, and only moves that arm because the Sinless One, the great Mediator, has stepped in to take away the sin of our supplication.
    ... Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), Spurgeon’s Sermons Volume 9: 1863, CCEL, Sermon 515 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 8:26-27,34; Isa. 6:6-7; 64:6; Zech. 12:10; Eph. 2:18; 1 John 2:1
Quiet time reflection:
    Purify my prayer, Lord.
