Spurgeon forgotten prayer meetings

Terence CrosbySKU: CHSFLS2389 ISBN: 9781846252389



Spurgeon's magazine, The Sword and the Trowel, provided the material for various collections of his addresses and writings compiled after his death in 1892. Among these was Only a Prayer Meeting, published in 1901 and containing forty prayer meeting addresses which appeared in the magazine up to and including that year. One other brief prayer meeting address from the 1901 volume (‘Unequally yoked together' – 2 Corinthians 6:14-15) was included by Eric Hayden in his compilation C. H. Spurgeon's Sermons preached on Unusual Occasions.

A further twenty two such addresses appeared in The Sword and the Trowel between 1904 and 1911, seventeen of these carrying dates for specific Monday evenings from 1866 to 1868. These are reproduced in the first part of this volume, which may be regarded as a sequel to Only a Prayer Meeting, together with several other forgotten sermons to be found in The Sword and the Trowel either on prayer or from roughly the same period of Spurgeon's ministry. May God's people be encouraged to regard individual prayer and the church prayer meeting as priorities in the Christian life.

Being of a firm conviction that the Prayer Meeting of the church is of immense importance to a believers walk with God, this volume had an immediate appeal. This book will not disappoint those who come with a heart that says, Lord, speak to me and help me to pray. There are 37 addresses. The topics are very wide in scope. They range from the subject of prayer to that of 'Are you saved?' Each message is pointed and instructive. Here is a book which will encourage, stir and strengthen faith. I hope it will give a flavour of what a prayer meeting address ought to be. How helpful this would be to ministers of God's word. The publishers desire that this book encourage God's people 'regard prayer and the church prayer meeting as priorities in the Christian life' - they have certainly helped to that end in publishing this volume.
