Prayer and Proper Focus on Jesus

Hello folks! Devotional Monday is brought to us by the late Charles Spurgeon, a British preacher during the 1800s. He often delivered his devotionals with a morning and an evening focus—so I’ve provided a bit of the morning text, with a link to the devotional in its entirety.

You can check out more devotionals, and other great resources, at BibleGateway.com.  Enjoy the reading!

Morning

“The ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven wellfavoured and fat kine.”
Genesis 41:4

Pharaoh’s dream has too often been my waking experience. My days of sloth have ruinously destroyed all that I had achieved in times of zealous industry; my seasons of coldness have frozen all the genial glow of my periods of fervency and enthusiasm; and my fits of worldliness have thrown me back from my advances in the divine life. I had need to beware of lean prayers, lean praises, lean duties, and lean experiences, for these will eat up the fat of my comfort and peace. If I neglect prayer for never so short a time, I lose all the spirituality to which I had attained; if I draw no fresh supplies from heaven, the old corn in my granary is soon consumed by the famine which rages in my soul.
