Do you pray?
Spurgeon, from his sermon, "Forgiveness"
Is prayer your constant practice, my reader?
How many of you must confess that you have not prayed,
that it is not your habit to hold communion with God?
Prayerless souls are Christless souls;
for you can have no real fellowship with
Christ, no communion with the Father,
unless you approach his mercy-seat,
and be often there.
Have you been with God in secret,
and held heart converse with him?
Or have you only repeated many a 'form of prayer',
while the breathing desire, the living words,
have not come from your lips?
