Pastors Prayer Partners Program

In the late 19th century, the great orator, writer and pastor, Charles Spurgeon, helped fuel a massive growth of Christianity in England with his fiery brand of preaching and his stirring and thought-provoking essays and devotions. Operating out of the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London, Spurgeon led a congregation of more than 10,000 people each Sunday in teaching, prayer and worship.

While giving a tour of his church to a group of people, he asked if they would like to see the boiler room of the church. He took them to the boiler room and there was a mass of people praying. Spurgeon said that it was these prayers that kept the "spiritual heat" within the church.

At the exact time he was preaching on Sundays to the masses, members of his church would gather in the church boiler room to pray. These early-day prayer warriors were specifically asking for Gods blessing over the services led by their pastor. This unique approach to prayer no doubt played a large role in the success and effectiveness of Spurgeon’s ministry and the spread of Christianity throughout 19th century Europe.
