Spurgeon on Prayer

I came across this quote in my reading this morning….

“When God piles up a hill of mercies, He himself shines behind them, and He casts on our spirits the shadow of mercy. Prayer is thus connected with the blessings to show us the value of it. If we had the blessings without asking for them, we should think them common things; but prayer makes our mercies more precious than diamonds. The things we ask for are precious, but we do not realize their preciousness until we have sought them earnestly.” – Spurgeon

Amen. Note to self: Pray earnestly for more things more often.
