Here is a collection of sermons on the subject of prayer by one of the most beloved preachers in the history of the English-speaking world. Spurgeon was popular in the most fundamental sense of the word in that he was “of the people.” He began selling his sermons early in his career, and they have been published in many formats over the last century and a half.

This edition presents the sermons in a re-typeset and redesigned modern, easy-to-read format. Selected from over 3,500 sermons, this volume features Spurgeon’s preaching on praying: the personal life of prayer, as well as prayers of the Bible and the prayers of Christ.

The focus is on praying, not prayer, in the sense that praying is an action and not an abstraction. Spurgeon preaches about how praying is a key component of a righteous life, about the work of prayer in the life of a Christian, about examples of prayer found in the Scriptures, and about the pray-ers: the saints whose examples can teach us about prayer.

C. H. Spurgeon (1834-92), the great Victorian preacher, was one of the most influential people of the second half of the 19th Century. He was a famous British preacher and pastor for 38 years of New Park Street Chapel, later called the Metropolitan Tabernacle. At the heart of his desire to preach was a fierce love of people, a desire that meant he did not neglect his pastoral ministry.
