Why are many Christians often defeated? Because they pray so little. Why do most Christians see so few brought out of darkness to light by their ministry? Because they pray so little. Why are our churches simply not on fire for God? Because there is so little real prayer.
We may be assured of this: The secret of all failure is our failure in secret prayer.
This book explores, in depth:
- God’s wonder at our lack of prayer
- God’s incredible promises concerning those who do pray
- God’s condition for providing signs
- God’s desire for earnest prayer
- God’s perspective on hindrances to prayer
The Lord Jesus is as powerful today as ever before. The Lord Jesus is as anxious for men to be saved as ever before. His arm is not shortened that it cannot save, but He does not stretch forth His arm unless we pray more – and more genuinely. Prayer, real prayer, is the noblest, the sublimest, and the most stupendous act that any creature of God can perform. Lord, teach us how to pray.
A must-read for anyone who loves God and their neighbour.
As an individual, you may ask, How can I, an average person, do anything to reach the lost? Or if a pastor, you may be discouraged and feel ineffective with your congregation, much less the world. Or perhaps you don’t yet have a heart for the lost. Whatever your excuse, it’s time to change. Overcome yourself and learn to make a difference in your church and the world around you. It’s time to become an effective soul winner for Christ.
As Christians, our main business is to win souls. But, in Spurgeon’s own words, “like shoeing-smiths, we need to know a great many things. Just as the smith must know about horses and how to make shoes for them, so we must know about souls and how to win them for Christ.” Learn about souls, and how to win them, from one of the most acclaimed soul winners of all time.
In this book, Charles Spurgeon discusses:
•The role of conviction
•The need for holiness in the soul winner
•Why simplicity is more effective
•How to be interesting
•How to pray for the lost
•How to deal with failure
•The role of discipleship
•How to engage others to help
Now in modern English, with additional supporting scripture added in key areas.
