Prayers That Rock the Tree

When we get discouraged in prayer because we haven’t yet seen the answer, let’s remember these words from Charles Spurgeon:

“Some mercies are not given to us except in answer to importunate prayer. There are blessings which, like ripe fruit, drop into your hand the moment you touch the bough. But there are others which require you to shake the tree again and again, until you make it rock with the vehemence of your exercise, for only then will the fruit fall down.” (Charles Spurgeon)

    That's strange … I don't remember seeing that in your dad's recent post about the forgotten quotes of Spurgeon.

    Actually, it's too good to forget!

    Thanks,
