Spurgeon on Praying in the Spirit

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

Spurgeon’s five aspects of praying in the Spirit:

  1. Fervency: “Those who do not plead with fervency, plead not at all.”
  2. Perseveringly: “The longer the gate is closed, the more vehemently does he uses the knocker.”
  3. Humbly: “Out of hte depths must we cry, or we shall never behold glory in the highest.”
  4. Loving: “Prayer should be perfumed with love, saturated with love — love to saints, and love to Christ.”
  5. Faith: “A man prevails only as he believes.”

Most blessed Comforter, exert Thy mighty power within us, helping our infirmities in prayer!
