C. H. Spurgeon

Yes! The very life of the church depends on it…

“The condition of the church may be 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 slothfulness in prayer”

~ Charles Spurgeon
