Prayer can never be in excess.

From Psalm 32:6-7:  “Therefore let all who are faithful offer prayer to you; at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters shall not reach them.  You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with glad cries of deliverance.”

Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) was an influential English preacher.  Even in modern times, his writings and many sermons have remained a constant source of encouragement to Christians around the world.  He has often be referred to as the “Prince of Preachers.”

The closer we are to the Shepherd, the safer we are from the wolves.

From Isaiah 43:2-3:  “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.  For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.”
