Liquid Prayers

Let us learn to think of tears as liquid prayers, and of weeping as a constant dropping of importunate intercession which will wear its way right surely into the very heart of mercy, despite the stony difficulties which obstruct the way.

Charles Spurgeon, Treasury of David, comments on Psalm 6.8

The Joy of Preaching

It is always sweet preaching for me when I feel that I come forth in the name of my Master — when I do not come to tell you what ideas I have woven out of my own brain, nor to put attractive figures before you, as I would like to do sometimes — but rather, when I come to tell you just what my Lord would have you know, telling it as a message to you from your God and cherishing in my own heart His great love toward perishing sinners. Then, indeed, to minister is joy!

Charles Spurgeon (1834 – 1892)
