Spurgeon on Prayer

Someone just posted this on the ABIDE! Challenge Facebook page and I just had to share it:

"We never read that Joshua's hand was weary with wielding the sword, but Moses' hand was weary with holding the rod.  The more spiritual the duty, the more apt we are to tire of it.  We could stand and preach all day; but we could not pray all day.  We could go forth to see the sick all day, but we could not be in our closets all day one-half so easily.  To spend a night with God in prayer would be far more difficult than to spend a night with man in preaching.  Oh!  Take care, Church of Christ, that you do not cease your prayers!"

-Charles Spurgeon
