This call to prayer comes from long years past, from the lips of a Baptist pastor by the name of Charles Spurgeon. It seems remarkably timely.
We need times of refreshing, both at home and abroad. The enemies of the gospel are exceedingly busy and crafty, and we can only meet them by power from on high. The needs of our nation grow upon us, and only One can multiply our loaves and ﬁshes so as to feed the multitude. We ourselves being compassed with inﬁrmities need to be daily girt with fresh strength; and our churches being made up of imperfect men and women can only be kept in healthy, united action by the Spirit of our God. Brethren, all these are reasons for incessant, importunate prayer.’ – Charles Haddon Spurgeon
