I really enjoyed this first volume in the Spurgeon Speaks series. This is a collection of 8 of Spurgeon's sermons on prayer. The sermon topics include: the power of prayer, praying and waiting, David's dying prayer, the key to prayer, godliness and prayer, prayer for temptation, prayer without ceasing, and thanksgiving and prayer.
Even though these sermons were preached more than 100 years ago, they are very relevant today, since we struggle in much the same way people did back then. Prayer can be difficult when we don't walk in it but easy when we do. This is something Spurgeon pointed out in one of these sermons that I have personally experienced.
I'm grateful to Mr. Jason Allen for working on these volumes and making them available to us. It's amazing that these sermons can still be beneficial to us after being preached over 100 years ago. Spurgeon Speaks is such a fitting name.
I'm not sure if the language was edited for an easier read but I did not find Spurgeon's vernacular difficult to understand. But reading through this volume may require concentration since it was not written to be read but rather heard.
This little compilation was helpful and challenging- without a doubt, fans of the Prince of Preachers will love it and the nuggets it contains.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
