Prayer links to Heaven

for August 23, 2008

Prayer is a telephone by which God speaks to man. His Heaven is far away, but His voice sounds in our soul. Prayer is a phonograph: God speaks into our soul, and then our soul speaks out again what the Lord has spoken.

If you do not pray, my brother, why then you have shut the gates of Heaven against yourself, and there is neither coming in nor going out between you and your Lord; but prayer keeps up a heavenly commerce acceptable to God and enriching to your own soul.

[From the original Spurgeon Birthday Book published by Passmore & Alabaster, London.]
