Thursday Book Review – The Secret Power in Prayer

#spurgeonbook #bookreview

Hello beloved, I have another Spurgeon book to review for today! We can never read too many books from the Prince of Preachers can we?

A while back our brother in Christ, Pastor Jim reviewed this book. I’m in a season, and have been for several months, of learning the whys, when’s, where’s, and how’s of praying. Previous to this book, and one other resource I’ll recommend at the end, I had been praying for help understanding prayer. God is a gracious God, He answers even the weakest believers prayer.

After being saved prayer flowed out of me like an uncontrollable force. As I grow in faith my hearts greatest desire is obedience to God, to love Him with all my heart, soul, strength, and mind. This book, The Secret Power in Prayer, has been extremely enlightening. Throughout the book, based on a sermon, Spurgeon uses John 15:7 to explain the power of prayer in the believers life. With this verse he shows that when Gods Word abides in us our will lines up with Gods will. I recommend this book to all believers, young and old. Kayliegh is reading it, she is 7, and she’s enjoying it as much as I have.

As a Christian, aware of Gods sovereignty, I would never want to be outside of Gods will, much less pray to Him about something outside of His will. But then…why pray at all? It’s His will be done, right? Beloved brethren, I couldn’t stop praying even if I wanted to. However, I still want to understand what God’s sovereign purpose in prayer is. Below is a lecture series that was such a tremendous blessing to me, in regards to prayer. As always, dear friends, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

    1. It’s been such a blessing to me! It popped up under my suggestions on youtube one day, and I had been praying so long for more help with all the stuff he covers. I almost laughed out loud when he started explaining how to pray, stand up, sit down, kneel…because that was one of those random questions that had really been bothering me! Just like we were saying yesterday, we really are a blessed generation to have such access to the wisdom and knowledge of other believers.

      1. Dr. Rosscup’s reputation of being a man of prayer has shaped generations of preachers and pastors graduating from The Master’s Seminary. He’s probably written the definitive work on prayer, having looked at every passage on prayer and expounding on it.

      2. Wow, I had no idea! What a tremendous treasure it is to have his lecture available then. I’ll have to get ahold of his written works as well. Any book you’d recommend particularly, brother?
