True prayer is measured by weight, not by length.
A single groan before God may have more fullness of prayer in it
than a fine oration of great length.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon
I have become quite a fan of Spurgeon recently. I am reading a compilation of his messages on prayer entitled: The Power of Prayer in a Believer's Life.
I will get quite personal now and ask that you pray for my son, Elijah. He will be having major hip surgery on December 30th. He is to be in the hospital for three or four days afterward. With a four to six month recovery to follow.
