Inspiring devotional reading from two classic writers
Both Andrew Murray and C. H. Spurgeon wrote and taught about the immeasurable value of intercessory prayer in the life of every believer and the entire church. They believed that persistent, fervent prayer is, perhaps, the greatest work that every Christian can do by the grace of God and in the power of the Holy Spirit. Spurgeon told his congregation, "No one can do me a truer kindness in this world than to pray for me."
Editor L. G. Parkhurst has compiled selections on this important topic from Murray's devotional books and Spurgeon's sermons updating them for today's reader. The thirty-one devotionals begin with a reading by Murray, then Spurgeon's commentary on that aspect of intercession as well as a concluding prayer.
The Believer's Secret of Intercession powerfully persuades us to labor together and individually in fervent prayer so that sinners might be converted and blessings might fall upon the saints of God.
A unique devotional handbook on a topic of great importance for the church today.
South African pastor and author Andrew Murray, (1828-1917), one of four children was raised in the most remote corner of the world - Graaff-Reinet (near the Cape), South Africa, It was here, after his formal education in Scotland and three years of theological study,in Holland, that Andrew Murray returned as a missionary and minister. Murray's first appointment was to a remote and unattractive territory of nearly 50,000 square miles and 12,000 people.
In 1873, he helped to establish the Huguenot Seminary for girls. He also served as the first president of the Young Men's Christian Fellowship (YMCA).
Not only was Andrew Murray the author of over 240 books, he was also a man of great prayer. He began writing on the "deeper Christian life" - a favorite subject for Murray - for his congregation as an extension of his local pastoral work, but he became internationally known for his books, such as With Christ in the School of Prayerand Abide in Christ, that searched men's hearts and brought them into a deep relationship with Christ. Writing with an intensity of purpose and zeal for the message of the Gospel, Murray wrote numerous books even after his retirement at age seventy-eight. .- Publisher.
