“I never prayed that you might be a Baptist” by Charles Spurgeon

“I recollect my mother saying to me, ‘I prayed that you might be a Christian, but I never prayed that you might be a Baptist;’ but, nevertheless, I became a Baptist, for, as I reminded her, the Lord was able to do for her exceeding abundantly above what she asked or thought, and He did it.”

–Charles H. Spurgeon, “The Church: The World’s Hope” The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit Sermons, Vol. LI (London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1905), 439. Spurgeon preached this sermon from Acts 27:24 in 1863 at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London.
