BLOG ON: SERMON The Preacher's Private Prayer
Crich Baptist Church
C. H. Spurgeon
The audio for this lecture is taken from Charles Haddon Spurgeon's - Lectures to My Students, and you can tell his advice is formed on the anvil of experience, we offer this audio now, with the prayer that God will will use Mr. Spurgeon's words to be a help and encouragement, and yes, even a challenge, to many preachers in our own day.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

The matter, and importance, of the minister's, pastor's, or preacher's private prayer life, occupies the whole of this third lecture, originally given by C. H. Spurgeon to his students at the Pastor's College. He pleads for much prayer before, and indeed after each sermon, as well as stressing the significance of the minister's private daily devotions.

The preacher who neglects to pray, is described as - "careless about his ministry, "not having computed the value of a soul, or estimated the meaning of eternity." "Most of us" - says Mr. Spurgeon - "need self-examination as to this matter."

Mr. Spurgeon describes the difficulty of defining "preaching with unction", but explained it thus - "he who preaches knows its presence, and he who hears knows its absence." "It is," he says, "a dew from the Lord."

Those who seek to counterfeit devotion are rebuked, and again, refering to inspiration and unction we are told - "to the secret pleader with God this secret is committed; upon him rests the dew of the Lord ............ only in prayer can we obtain it, let us continue instant, constant, fervent in supplication."
