PRAYER IS A GAUGE

Spurgeon: The condition of the church may be very accurately gauged by its prayer meetings. So is the prayer meeting a grace-ometer, and from it we may judge of the amount of divine working among a people. If God be near a church, it must pray. And if He be not there, one of the first tokens of His absence will be a slothfulness in prayer.

(Tom Carter, comp., "Spurgeon at His Best" (Grand Rapids, MI: Baker, 1988), p. 155: selections from the 1873 edition of the "Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, p. 218. )
