Spurgeon: the spirit of prayer

Wednesday, December 26, 2012
    Feast of Stephen, Deacon, First Martyr
Give ear to my words,
    O LORD, consider my sighing.
    —Psalm 5:1 (NIV)
    Let us cultivate the spirit of prayer which is even better than the habit of prayer. There may be seeming prayer where there is little devotion. We should begin to pray before we kneel down, and we should not cease when we rise up.
    ... Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), The Treasury of David, v. I, New York: Funk & Wagnalls, 1883, p. 49 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, maintain prayer in my heart.
