When you begin to pray with sincerity, prayer follows like an echo.

The enemy cannot imitate that voice. As you pray more, perseveringly, confidently, earnestly- as you pray with your spirit pressed down to the earth and crying for mercy- you shall find it.”- Charles Spurgeon

“Expect trouble as an inevitable part of the Christian life.”- Charles Spurgeon

He was very much in the position of a servant, and He gave an example that we should follow. He was the Good Shepard, the Lamb of God, the Servant of mankind. We have paid no attention to the passages which declare His lordship and glory; but when He appears as Judge upon His throne, as King of kings and Lord of lords, it will be a sublime sight.”- Charles Spurgeon
