Being Born Again, Salvation And The Gospel Quotes – Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“When we preach Christ crucified, we have no reason to stammer, or stutter, or hesitate, or apologize; there is nothing in the gospel of which we have any cause to be ashamed.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Never lose heart in the power of the gospel. Do not believe that there exists any man, much less any race of men, for whom the gospel is not fitted.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The law never came to save men. It came on purpose to make the evidence complete that salvation by works is impossible, and thus to drive the elect of God to rely wholly on the finished salvation of the gospel.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“If the Lord’s bearing our sin for us is not the gospel, I have no gospel to preach.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Jesus is the Truth. We believe in Him, —not merely in His words. He Himself is Doctor and Doctrine, Revealer and Revelation, the Illuminator and the Light of Men. He is exalted in every word of truth, because He is its sum and substance. He sits above the gospel, like a prince on His own throne.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The hearing of the gospel involves the hearer in responsibility. It is a great privilege to hear the gospel. You may smile and think there is nothing very great in it.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“We have an unchanging gospel, which is not today green grass and tomorrow dry hay; but always the abiding truth of the immutable Jehovah.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Do not suppose that the Gospel is magnified or God glorified by going to the worldlings and telling them that they may be saved at this moment by simply accepting Christ as their Savior, while they are wedded to their idols, and their hearts are still in love with sin. If I do so I tell them a lie, pervert the Gospel , insult Christ, and turn the grace of God into lasciviousness.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Do you know, my dear unsaved hearer, what God’s estimate of the gospel is? Do you not know that it has been the chief subject of his thoughts and acts from all eternity? He looks on it as the grandest of all his works.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Let this be to you the mark of true gospel preaching – where Christ is everything, and the creature is nothing; where it is salvation all of grace, through the work of the Holy Spirit applying to the soul the precious blood of Jesus.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Avoid a sugared gospel as you would shun sugar of lead.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“On Christ, and what he has done, my soul hangs for time and eternity. And if your soul also hangs there, it will be saved as surely as mine shall be. And if you are lost trusting in Christ, I will be lost with you and will go to hell with you. I must do so, for I have nothing else to rely upon but the fact that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, lived, died, was buried, rose again, went to heaven, and still lives and pleads for sinners at the right hand of God.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Oh, what would they give if they could hear the gospel now? If they could come back and entertain but the shadow of a hope that they might escape from the wrath to come?”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The heart of the gospel is redemption, and the essence of redemption is the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Seek the gospel which rips up and tears and cuts and wounds and hacks and even kills, for that is the gospel that makes alive again. And when you have found it, give good heed to it. Let it enter into your inmost being. As the rain soaks into the ground, so pray the Lord to let his gospel soak into your soul.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“If God does not save men by truth, he certainly will not save them by lies. And if the old gospel is not competent to work a revival, then we will do without the revival.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Let this be to you the mark of true gospel preaching – where Christ is everything, and the creature is nothing; where it is salvation all of grace, through the work of the Holy Spirit applying to the soul the precious blood of Jesus.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The saved in heaven estimate this privilege at a high rate, for, having obtained salvation through the preaching of this gospel, they can never cease to bless their God for calling them by his word of truth.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“On your dying beds the listening to a gospel sermon will seem another thing than it seems now.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The hearing of the gospel involves the hearer in responsibility. It is a great privilege to hear the gospel.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“A Christ-less gospel is no gospel and a Christ-less discourse is the cause of merriment to devils.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“I do not come into this pulpit hoping that perhaps somebody will of his own free will return to Christ. My hope lies in another quarter. I hope that my Master will lay hold of some of them and say, ‘You are mine, and you shall be mine. I claim you for myself.’ My hope arises from the freeness of [sovereign] grace, and not from the freedom of the will.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“On Christ, and what he has done, my soul hangs for time and eternity. And if your soul also hangs there, it will be saved as surely as mine shall be. And if you are lost trusting in Christ, I will be lost with you and will go to hell with you. I must do so, for I have nothing else to rely upon but the fact that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, lived, died, was buried, rose again, went to heaven, and still lives and pleads for sinners at the right hand of God.”

Jehovah Tsidkenu – The Lord Our Righteousness. We don’t have any righteousness of our own as believers. Our righteousness comes through faith by believing in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross and his resurrection. It’s not about what we do or don’t do. It’s about what Jesus already did for us. And we can have a sure confidence in the work of Jesus. 

The righteousness of God never fails to protect us from enemies and the tricks of the devil because it is pure and holy. 



But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back._ 39. But we do not belong to those who shrink 3


Our righteousness on the other hand is as filthy rugs and exposes us to enemies. Let’s learn to lean on God and trust his righteousness. We can then be able to walk confidently, safe in the knowledge that Jesus is our righteousness and because he has us, we won’t be able to shrink back, backslide or lose our way. We can be sure of heaven and prosperity when we have Jesus as our righteousness.

The Importance Of Humility In Life | The Power In Being Humble.



In a world that brags, it takes strength to be humble. Most people think humility is weakness but that is not true. Humility is powerful because it requires one to push against their flesh and ego.


Battling the ego is not an easy feat and it is a war we have to wage everyday.


Humility is a very important attribute because it helps to keep us in check so that we don’t go overboard and fall. There is a common adage that pride goes before a fall. Well, humility helps to make sure, we don’t fall. Humility helps us to soar.


Humility brings rest and peace of mind. The world is always pushing us to do more and to be more. There is continuous pressure to acquire things and then show these things off in guise of increasing our self esteem and self worth in the eyes of the world. Well, a humble and gentle spirit helps us to avoid falling into this all common trap.


“Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 All of you, take up My yoke and learn from Me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for yourselves. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

Jesus is the most powerful force to reckon with in the universe and yet he is also the most humble person in history.


Jesus is lord and master and yet he humbled himself and washed the feet of his disciples and servants to demonstrate to them the importance of being humble.

In the current age in which we live, people often expect quick fixes and quick answers. Most people are impatient. And thanks to technological advancement, life has become faster and we can now get things more quickly thanks to microwaves, heaters, driers, dryers, dishwashers etc. 

House chores are not as burdensome as they used to be. Transportation is faster with airplanes, fast trains and cars.  If you need quick love and sex, there are numerous websites and services that offer that. We love speed and we have access to it. 

And yet not everything in life is easy to come by.

For example:

  • •Some couples take years before getting children.
  • •Some investments take years to grow before yielding.
  • •A quality education takes decades.
  • •Building a great career can take years.
  • •Getting your first house or car may take months or years etc.
  • •Some diseases and sicknesses take months or even years before cure.

There are promises that God has made to us as believers. And some of us have waited for years with no signs of answers. The Bible verse above is encouraging us to hold on and never give up.



So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. 36. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God 3
  • Keep fasting.
  • Keep praying.
  • Keep doing good.
  • Keep obeying God.
  • Keep running the race of faith.
  • Keep giving your tithe and offering.
  • Keep giving to those who are less privileged than you are.
  • Keep serving those around you who need your assistance. 

Despite the persecution and trials please don’t let go of your faith. Your services and sacrifices are not in vain. 

The promises of God are yes and amen. In due time he will reward you. At the right moment he will open the doors that need to be opened. Just keep holding on and never give up. Jesus never fails.

When people hurt us or take advantage of us, it is an easy trap to feel the urge to pay them back for their sins. 

For example:

1. A spouse cheats and the other spouse cheats back to show the first spouse just how painful their betrayal felt.

2. You are harassed by a bully and your first instinct is to harass the bully back to show them that they have no power over you.

3. You loan someone money and they fail to pay back. To show them how painful their actions were you decide to take some of their own property as compensation.

The examples for instances where we are tempted to take revenge abound. It’s a weakness of our fleshy bodies.Its very tempting to want to show our oppressors that we have power and might and it’s sadly an easy trap to fall into too. And yet the Bible Verse above is reminding us to put our ego aside and leave it to God.  Scripture is encouraging us to trust God and his methods for payback over our own.

And the truth is we can trust God to restore everything taken from us by the enemy. 

Whether those things are intangible goods like love, health, joy, laughter, freedom or tangible things like money, property and possessions. 

We can trust Jesus because his methods for restoration are much better than ours and his ways are higher than ours. Are you going through the pain of betrayal, hurt, loss and grief? 

Do you feel like taking matters into your own hands and avenging? Please don’t. Instead cast all your cares unto Jesus and he will deal with the situation.

Reflections And Lessons:



The gospel of punishment for sin, judgement and hell is not a popular one. It is a gospel many people don’t want to hear because it makes them uncomfortable. Unfortunately it is also a gospel that many people have grown indifferent to. Yet despite our reservations towards speaking about sin, judgement, punishment and hell, it is the gospel of truth. 

It is a message even Jesus preached and taught.

Many times we take God for granted. Because of his great mercies, patience and kindness we forget that we serve a holy God who hates sin. 



If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27. but only a fearful expectation of judgment 3


The price Jesus paid for our sins is too great for us to keep on sinning. It is an insult to his sacrifice paid on the cross.

As we go about our daily lives and as we run the journey of  faith, let us not fall into the trap that sin sets. A trap of fleeting pleasures. Let us continually remember that we serve a Holy God and let us worship and honor him by living sinless and righteousness lives. It is possible.

Reflections And Lessons:



Let’s admit it. Sometimes life gets really busy. If you have a job and a family with children for example, the work and bills can pile up. 

Recent statistics show that fewer and fewer people are going to church. 

Cathedrals and traditional churches are becoming empty. Some say it is because many people are losing their faith. But another explanation could be that people are just busier. Despite the reasons given, it’s important to stay in fellowship. 

Fellowship with other believers helps to build our faith, offers encouragement, motivation and inspiration to keep running the race of faith. With increased persecution of believers, having a fellowship and prayer group helps believers to stay strong. 

Fellowships can also be a great avenue to help others who might be struggling and in need of our services. Simply put, fellowships are great places for service and discipleship.

With the increase in technological advancements and the internet, we can’t really have an excuse for not staying in fellowship with our brethren during this modern age. 

So as a believer in Jesus who wants to build their faith, serve others and stay connected how can you keep in fellowship despite a tight schedule?

Here are a few ideas:

1. There are various online churches these days. You have an opportunity to attend church without leaving your house.

2. You can listen to sermons and teachings on radio stations, podcasts and youtube where videos are continually being produced and uploaded.

3. You can buy a video or audio tape and listen to it while driving, at home, at the park or anywhere you get an opportunity and chance.

4. With the advent of PayPal and Visa, you can give your tithe and offering online and serve those who are less fortunate than you.

5. There are thousands of books, devotionals and other resources online that you can get to enrich your spiritual life.

6. With the advent of social media you can join prayer groups, activity groups and various spiritual and faith based clubs where you can share your faith with other believers all over the world.

Despite the various changes in our world and landscape, Apostle Paul’s encouragement is still valid even in this modern age. 

Please let’s not give up the habit of fellowship, meeting together, encouraging each other and sharing our faith.

Reflections And Lessons:



It’s often easy to love those who love us. It’s easy to reciprocate requited love. But what about loving those who are difficult to love? 

How can we spur each other to love people who are just difficult to love? 

Those who are prickly and tend to spun our love when we give it to them?



And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Hebrews 10_ 24 Bible Verse Social Media Square Image 3

Below are a few ways we can consider:

1. We can pray for them and whatever needs they have.

2. We can ask the Holy spirit to soften their hearts and make them receptive to love.

3. We can forgive them when they hurt us instead of choosing to hold a grudge. 

4. We can fast for them.

5. We can keep the doors of our hearts open to them instead of shutting them out.

6. We can patiently wait for them to change and become better.

7. We can tithe on their behalf as we stand in the gap for them.

8. We can keep offering our help and love in places they lack.

Prayer Is The Best Study – Prayer And Devotional Quotes – Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayer is the safest method of replying to a word of hatred.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Our Father in heaven” — I am a child away from home.
“Your name be honored as holy”–I am a worshiper.
“Your kingdom come”–I am a subject.
“Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”–I am a servant.
“Give us today our daily bread”–I am a beggar.
“And forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors”–I am a sinner.
“And do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one”–I am a sinner in danger of being a still greater sinner.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The streaming wounds of Jesus are the sure guarantees for answered prayer.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“The church always has need for prayer. There are always some in her midst who are declining, or falling into open sin. There are lambs to be prayed for, that they may be carried in Christ’s bosom: the strong, lest they grow presumptuous; and the weak, lest they become despairing.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“IF ever one of woman born might have lived without prayer, it was our spotless, perfect Lord, and yet none was ever so much in supplication as He!”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Dear brethren, if we shut our ears to what Jesus tells us, we shall never have power in prayer, nor shall we enjoy intimate communion with the Well-beloved.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Our silence might be better than our voices if our solitude was spent with God.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“The answer to the prayer is certain, if it be sincerely offered through Jesus. The Lord’s character assures us that He will not leave His people; His relationship as Father and Husband guarantee us His aid; His gift of Jesus is a pledge of every good thing; and His sure promise stands, “Fear not, I WILL HELP THEE.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Groans that words cannot express are often prayers that God cannot refuse.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayer is never out of season: in summer and in winter its merchandize is precious. Prayer gains audience with heaven in the dead of night, in the midst of business, in the heat of noonday, in the shades of evening. In every condition, whether of poverty, or sickness, or obscurity, or slander, or doubt, your covenant God will welcome your prayer and answer it from His holy place.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Prayer is the best study. It blesses the pleading preacher and the people to whom he ministers.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Moses grew weary, and then his friends assisted him. When at any time your prayer flags, let faith support one hand, and let holy hope uplift the other, and prayer seating itself upon the stone of Israel, the rock of our salvation, will persevere and prevail.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“In His own heart, there were frequently great struggles. And those struggles drove Him to prayer.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“A true prayer is an inventory of needs, a catalog of necessities, an exposure of secret wounds, a revelation of hidden poverty.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Faith asks no signal from the skies, To show that prayers accepted rise, Our Priest is in His holy place, And answers from the throne of grace.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“When thou bendest thy knee in prayer to God, limit not thy petition to the narrow circle of thine own life, tried though it be, but send out thy longing prayers for the church’s prosperity, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem,” and thine own soul shall be refreshed.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Prayer is the longing of the soul to hold communion with the Most High, the desire of the heart to obtain blessings at His hands.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“I never expect, until I get to heaven, to be able to cease confessing sin every day and every time I stand before God.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Christians can never sin cheaply; they pay a heavy price for iniquity. Transgression destroys peace of mind, obscures fellowship with Jesus, hinders prayer, brings darkness over the soul; therefore be not the serf and bondman of sin.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayer must not be our chance work, but our daily business, our habit and vocation.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“You may force your way through anything with the leverage of prayer. Thoughts and reasonings are like the steel wedges which give a hold upon truth; but prayer is the lever, the prise which forces open the iron chest of sacred mystery, that we may get the treasure hidden within.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Faith asks no signal from the skies, To show that prayers accepted rise, Our Priest is in His holy place, And answers from the throne of grace.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayer should be the natural outflow of the soul: you should pray because you must pray, not because the set time for praying has arrived, but because your heart must cry unto your Lord.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“If God’s mercies came to us unasked, they would not be half so useful as they now are, when they have to be sought for; for now we get a double blessing, a blessing in the obtaining, and a blessing in the seeking. The very act of prayer is a blessing.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Words are not the essence but the garments of prayer.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“To us, at any rate, prayer is no vain thing. We go to our chambers alone, believing that we are transacting high and real business when we pray. We do not bow the knee merely because it is a duty, and a commendable spiritual exercise; but because we believe that, into the ear of the eternal God, we speak our wants, and that His ear is linked with a heart feeling for us, and a hand working on our behalf. To us, true prayer is true power.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“None of us can know how poor we are in comparison with what we might have been if we had lived habitually nearer to God in prayer.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Every place is now God’s temple, and His people can as truly serve Him in their daily employments as in His house. They are to be always “ministering,” offering the spiritual sacrifice of prayer and praise, and presenting themselves a “living sacrifice.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“It must be true prayer, and if it be such, it will, like love, cover a multitude of sins. You can pardon a man’s familiarities and his vulgarities too, when you clearly see that his inmost heart is speaking to his Maker.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“As artists give themselves to their models, and poets to their classical pursuits, so must we addict ourselves to prayer.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Do not, you troubled ones, be looking after angels, and tokens, and evidences, and signs. If you rest on the finished work of Jesus you have already the best evidence of your salvation in the world! You have God’s Word for it—what more is needed? Cannot you take God’s Word? You can take your father’s word. You can take your mother’s word—why cannot you take God’s word? Oh, what base hearts we must have to suspect God Himself!”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayer without fervency is like hunting with a dead dog, and prayer without preparation is hawking with a blind falcon.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayers are instantly noticed in heaven. The moment Saul began to pray, the Lord heard him. Here is comfort for the distressed but praying soul. When our hearts are broken and we bow in prayer, we are often only able to employ the language of sighs and tears; still our groaning has made all the harps of heaven thrill with music. That tear has been caught by God and treasured in the receptacle of heaven. “Put my tears in your bottle”1 implies that they are caught as they flow.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayer is the natural out gushing of a soul in communion with Jesus. Just as the leaf and the fruit will come out of the vine-branch without any conscious effort on the part of the branch, but simply because of its living union with the stem, so prayer buds, and blossoms, and fruits out of souls abiding in Jesus.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“A sleepy prayer–what can make people more dislike going up to the house of God at all? Cast your whole soul into the exercise. If ever your whole manhood was engaged in anything., let it be in drawing near unto God in public.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayer bends the omnipotence of heaven to your desire. Prayer moves the hand that moves the world.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“The best praying man is the man who is most believingly familiar with the promises of God. After all, prayer is nothing but taking God’s promises to him, and saying to him, “Do as thou hast said.” Prayer is the promise utilized. A prayer which is not based on a promise has no true foundation.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“The church must by her varied agencies, efforts, and prayers, make herself ready to be blessed; she must make the pools, and the Lord will fill them.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Have you, dear Friend, who cannot preach, made a point of praying for the pastor of the Church to which you belong? It is a great sin on the part of Church members if they do not daily sustain their pastor by their prayers.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“When you cannot use your sword you may take to the weapon of all-prayer. Your powder may be damp, your bow-string may be relaxed, but the weapon of all-prayer need never be out of order.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“He was very short in prayer when others were present, but every sentence was like a strong bolt shot up to heaven. I have heard him say that he wearied when others were long in prayer; but, being alone, he spent much time in wrestling and prayer.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Let your cares drive you to God. I shall not mind if you have many of them if each one leads you to prayer. If every fret makes you lean more on the Beloved, it will be a benefit.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Not to pray because you do not feel fit to pray is like saying, “I will not take medicine because I am too ill.” Pray for prayer: pray yourself, by the Spirit’s assistance, into a praying frame.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“When we cannot pray as we would, it is good to pray as we can.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“It is a great sin on the part of Church members if they do not daily sustain their pastor by their prayers!”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Leviathan laughs at the javelin, but he trembles at prayer. Sword and spear need furbishing, but prayer never rusts, and when we think it most blunt it cuts the best. Prayer is an open door which none can shut. Devils may surround you on all sides, but the way upward is always open.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Let us set apart special seasons for extraordinary prayer. For if this fire should be smothered beneath the ashes of a worldly conformity, it will dim the fire on the family altar, and lessen our influence both in the Church and in the world.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Let holy preparation link hands with patient expectation, and we shall have far larger answers to our prayers.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Have we this day grace enough to make trenches into which the divine blessing may flow? Alas! we too often fail in the exhibition of true and practical faith. Let us this day be on the outlook for answers to prayer. As the child who went to a meeting to pray for rain took an umbrella with her, so let us truly and practically expect the Lord to bless us. Let us make the valley full of ditches and expect to see them all filled.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Christ’s mighty prayers are as vocal to God as His daily services. He witnesses under all circumstances.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Try this receipt, O believer, whenever thou art sad of heart and in heaviness of spirit: forget thyself and thy little concerns, and seek the welfare and prosperity of Zion. When thou bendest thy knee in prayer to God, limit not thy petition to the narrow circle of thine own life, tried though it be, but send out thy longing prayers for the church’s prosperity, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem,” and thine own soul shall be refreshed.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“If God be near a church, it must pray. And if he be not there, one of the first tokens of his absence will be a slothfulness in prayer.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Short prayers are long enough. There were but three words in the petition which Peter gasped out, but they were sufficient for his purpose. Not length but strength is desirable.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Lord teach us to be resigned to Thy will; teach us to delight in Thy law; teach us to have no will but Thy will; teach us to be sure that everything Thou doest is good — is the very best that can be done.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“The minister is not always in the act of prayer, but he is always in the spirit of it.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“This is frequently the position of believers now — they are called to perils and temptations altogether untried: at such seasons let them imitate Jacob’s example by offering sacrifices of prayer unto God, and seeking His direction; let them not take a step until they have waited upon the Lord for His blessing: then they will have Jacob’s companion to be their friend and helper.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Miserable men are we if we miss the aid of your prayers, but happy are we if we live in your supplications.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“A prayerless soul is a Christless soul. Prayer is the lisping of the believing infant, the shout of the fighting believer, the requiem of the dying saint falling asleep in Jesus. It is the breath, the watchword, the comfort, the strength, the honour of a Christian. If thou be a child of God, thou wilt seek thy Father’s face, and live in thy Father’s love. Pray that this year thou mayst be holy, humble, zealous, and patient; have closer communion with Christ.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Prayer is the slender nerve that moves the muscle of omnipotence.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“I have now concentrated all my prayers into one, and that one prayer is this, that I may die to self, and live wholly to Him.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Rest assured it is harder to know how to be full than it is to know how to be hungry–so desperate is the tendency of human nature to pride and forgetfulness of God. Take care that you ask in your prayers that God would teach you “how to be full.”  “Let not the gifts thy love bestows.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“We may not make sure that the Lord will at once remove all disease from those we love, but we may know that believing prayer for the sick is far more likely to be followed by restoration than anything else in the world; and where this avails not, we must meekly bow to His will by whom life and death are determined. The tender heart of Jesus waits to hear our griefs, let us pour them into His patient ear.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“If I feel myself disinclined to pray, then is the time when I need to pray more than ever.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Remember how it is written of Job, “The Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends.” While he prayed for himself, he remained a captive; but when he prayed for those unfriendly friends of his, then the Lord smiled upon him, and 
loosed his captivity.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“The song which thrills to heaven, and seeks to emulate seraphic strains, hath human discords in it. The prayer which moves the arm of God is still a bruised and battered prayer.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Prayer is the lisping of the believing infant, the shout of the fighting believer, the requiem of the dying saint falling asleep in Jesus. It is the breath, the watchword, the comfort, the strength, the honor of a Christian.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Our prayer must always be, ‘Holy Spirit, dwell with me! Holy Spirit, dwell with Your servants!” 


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication make known your wants unto God.” Cannot you trust God for temporals? “Ah! I wish I could.” If you cannot trust God for temporals, how dare you trust him for spirituals?”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“It is always best to get blessings into our house in the legitimate way, by the door of prayer; then they are blessings indeed, and not temptations.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“PRAISE should always follow answered prayer;”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Do not sit down and try to pump up repentance from the dry well of a corrupt nature. It is contrary to the laws of your mind to suppose that you can force your soul into that gracious state. Take your heart in prayer to Him who understands it and say, “Lord, cleanse it. Lord, renew it. Lord, work repentance in it.” The more you try to produce penitent emotions in yourself, the more you will be disappointed. However, if you believingly think of Jesus dying for you, repentance will burst forth.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Revival begins by Christians getting right first and then spills over into the world.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“We do not forget to eat: we do not forget to take the shop shutters down: we do not forget to be diligent in business: we do not forget to go to our beds to rest: but we often do forget to wrestle with God in prayer, and to spend, as we ought to spend, long periods in consecrated fellowship with our Father and our God.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“If you can trust Him with your soul, you must of necessity trust Him with your prayers!”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“For my own part, my constant prayer is that I may know the worst of my case, whatever the knowledge may cost me. I know that an accurate estimate of my own heart can never be otherwise than lowering to my self-esteem; but God forbid that I should be spared the humiliation which springs from the truth! The sweet red apples of self-esteem are deadly poison; who would wish to be destroyed thereby? The bitter fruits of self-knowledge are always healthful, especially if washed down with the waters of repentance, and sweetened with a draught from the wells of salvation; he who loves his own soul will not despise them.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“When you plead the name of Christ, you plead that which shakes the gates of hell and that which the hosts of heaven obey, and God Himself feels the sacred power of that divine plea.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“The Christian should work as if all depended upon him, and pray as if it all depended upon God.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Whether it be prayer or praise, whether it be work or suffering, the genuine salt of humility cannot be used in excess.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Thoughts and reasonings are like the steel wedges which give a hold upon truth; but prayer is the lever, the prise which forces open the iron chest of sacred mystery, that we may get the treasure hidden within.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Private prayer is the drill ground for our more public exercises, neither can we long neglect it without being out of order when before the people.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Keep the altar of private prayer burning. This is the very life of all piety. The altars of church and family borrow their fires from here, so let this one burn well. Secret devotion is the very essence, evidence, and barometer of vital, experiential religion.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“If we cannot prevail with men for God, we will at least endeavor to prevail with God for men.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Will you not this day make it your prayer? “Lord, help me to glorify Thee; I am poor, help me to glorify Thee by contentment; I am sick, help me to give Thee honour by patience; I have talents, help me to extol Thee by spending them for Thee; I have time, Lord, help me to redeem it, that I may serve Thee; I have a heart to feel, Lord, let that heart feel no love but Thine, and glow with no flame but affection for Thee; I have a head to think, Lord, help me to think of Thee and for Thee; Thou hast put me in this world for something, Lord, show me what that is, and help me to work out my life-purpose.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The very precariousness of weather excites a large amount of earnest prayer.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Spare neither labor in the study, prayer in the closet, nor zeal in the pulpit. If men do not judge their souls to be worth a thought, compel them to see that their minister is of a vex], different opinion.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“The seed of acceptable devotion must come from heaven’s storehouse. Only the prayer which comes from God can go to God.” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“This is a large petition. To intercede for a whole city needs a stretch  of faith, and there are times when a prayer for one man is enough to  stagger us. But how far-reaching was the psalmist’s dying intercession!  How comprehensive! How sublime! “Let the whole earth be filled with his  glory.” It doth not exempt a single country however crushed by the foot  of superstition; it doth not exclude a single nation however barbarous.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Reader, is prayer your element or your weariness? Which?”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon.


“Thou content to leave thy prayer in his hands, who knows when to give, and how to give, and what to give, and what to withhold. So pleading, earnestly, importunately, yet with humility and resignation, thou shalt surely prevail.”


Charles Haddon Spurgeon
