Item description for The Pastor in Prayer by Charles Haddon Spurgeon...
Overview When the American evangelist D. L. Moody spoke in the Metropolitan Tabernacle in October 1892, he recalled an earlier visit twenty-five years previously. He had come four thousand miles, he said, to hear C. H. Spurgeon, but what impressed him most was not the sermon, nor the singing of the great congregation, but Spurgeon?s prayer. Such was his access to God that he seemed to be able to bring down power from heaven. This was the great secret, Moody believed, of Spurgeon?s influence and success. This collection of prayers drawn primarily from Sunday morning services at the Tabernacle will make a similar impression on readers today. In this book we see Spurgeon come into the presence of God with deep reverence, yet with unquestioning child-like confidence, to plead God's promises in Scripture and to revel in the nearness to God into which Christ has brought all who believe. The Pastor in Prayer will inspire those who lead public worship and all Christians with a fresh sense of the privilege of prayer, and a renewed desire to ?come boldly to the throne of grace?, there to ?obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need? (Heb. 4:16).

Spurgeon: The Praying Pastor Apr 28, 2004
Charles Spurgeon is best remembered for many things such as his powerful sermons, his Down-Grade controversey, or his church in London, England. But few remember him for his prayer life. D.L. Moody once commented after returning from England when asked if he had Spurgeon preach he replied, "Even more, I heard Spurgeon pray."
This book is a collection of prayers by Spurgeon. Some have described Charles Spurgeon as the last English puritan. They may be right. These collection of prayers offered on Sunday mornings were copied down along with his sermons. However, the sermons made the print while the prayers often did not. We have them now and every Christian (especially evangelical pastors) should read and mark well the prayers of Spurgeon.
Oh that we would abandon such pragmatic theology that seeks to copy methods of men and return to the paths of God! Rather than seeking God's face, we seek men's ideas. May God forgive us for not praying. May we learn from Charles Spurgeon that true power if found on our face before a holy God.
